Hear ye, hear ye, I do decree! Another season of the Bachelor NZ to be reviewed by me! Roses! Dates! Champagne! Michael Hill! Whose wildest dreams will our new leading man fulfil? Each week we’ll watch as he looks for his queen, Let’s just hope he’s more interesting than bloody Art Green.   Desperate to […]

Even better, it’s on Netflix right now. Rebecca Bunch (played by Rachel Bloom, of slight YouTube notoriety, who also created and writes the show) is […]
