News: Liam Heffernan On This Season's American TV Imports

by Liam Heffernan

An obsession with film and television can be a terrible hindrance to essay-writing. Spending hours upon hours a day telling yourself you will start just as soon as you have caught up on Have I Got News For You and QI, but then you remember you forgot to watch Happy Endings and Glee from Thursday and how much work can you really be expected to do in the few minutes it takes to download? May as well put the kettle on and get all perked up so you’re ready to power on in an hour or two. Then you can properly focus. But wait, when does Harry Hill start? And you need to cook dinner too. Oh well, you’re free tomorrow, if you just catch up on Pan Am during breakfast and then crack on with essays in the afternoon before The X Factor Results.
