I have grown up with my parents listening to the Archers on Radio 4 at 7pm every day. The program is about a farming community and lasts about ten minutes. I’ve never got the fascination with the setting or how they could get addicted to such a short program.

Well now I have my own ten minute program:

House of Anubis. It’s a Nickelodeon teens program and its cheesy as hell. For these very reasons I should hate it but damn it’s addictive. It’s an Egyptian horror mystery set in a boarding school. And I swear. At the end of every episode there is a cliffhanger. e.g. They are on the point of solving part of the mystery and the episode ends. Then you are duty bound to watch the next episode to see how it resolves itself. It is a vicous cycle and before you know it you are addicted!

An example of the pure cheese. They need to get the Headmaster out of his office so they can recover something from within it. So they send him on a wild goose chase. Literally. They release a goose into the school corridors and the Headmaster ends up chasing after it to catch it. Honestly I laughed.

In the first series Nina the main character is charged with finding the pieces of a cup before the evil adults find them first. Hint there are a lot of wonderfully evil adults in the series! Most of the mystery takes places in their boarding house ‘Anubis’. They are given riddles as they uncover each object to get to the next. It’s a race against time and the adults and its thoroughly enjoyable.

I have seen series 2 and it’s wonderful and dark. The gang are haunted by an Egyptian ghost who wants them to recover an artifact for her. She’s a little bit crazy and pushes them through the clues with death threats and punishments. Again the whole thing is corny but utterly addictable.

Have a trailer of series 1 so you can see what I mean!
