Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon Review

3 hours ago

Essentially, at its core, cinema is just storytelling. Which is exactly the reason why Mike Myers’ directorial debut – alongside Beth Aala, in what is her sophomore endeavour – is such a treat. As Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon explores the life of a man who has dined, wined and revelled in the company of some of the most important cultural figures of the 20th century, and believe me, this man has some stories to tell.

Shep Gordon is one of the most famous people you’ve never heard of, and a contact list full of people you have. From a young age he was mixing with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, while managing eccentric rockstar Alice Cooper, partly responsible for creating that unique brand that saw the musician go on to achieve great success.

The 10 Must-See TV Shows This Summer

4 hours ago

The summer is often a quiet time for TV as many of the biggest shows are saved for the Autumn. That doesn’t mean that there’s still not a lot to tune into this summer though, and as we wait for the likes of Boardwalk Empire to return, there are plenty of shows for us to tune into over the next few months.

Some of the shows listed below have already started (though are all very easy to find thanks to on demand services like Sky Go and Netflix), while others won’t air until later this month or next, but they’re all must-see small screen viewing experiences for the many rainy days we’ll surely have in July and August.

We couldn’t cover every single new or returning show of course, so if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them – and your thoughts »
