First off, those crazy bastids at the BEEB only went and made another trailer for DOCTOR WHO, go HERE to see it. 'Citing'! Upliftin'! Plus there's a well cool shot of a Dalek which looks a little bit different... 'They' have also announced there will be a fourth season, hurrah! As usual the RADIO TIMES is keen to latch onto WHO's success and they've got 2 WHO-themed covers this week. There was a press launch last week and they showed some tantalising clips of what's to come. Eek!
‘Is it Gene Hunt? Is he kicking in a nonce?’
Elsewhere on TV, there was a bloody good episode of LIFE ON MARS which started off like 70s kids show, CAMBERWICK GREEN and was brilliantly done - as was the rest of the episode. DRAGON'S DEN and PARTY ANIMALS came to end (both great as usual but not outstanding - hope the latter's coming back)leaving a huge gap on Wednesday nights, what will I do? Oh yeah, THE APPRENTICE returns that night. On that note, the first winner TIM CAMPBELL has quit, click HERE for that one. Caught AMERICAN IDOL for the first time in a while and 'ole RANDY has gone one further than the 'X' Factor, he's coined the phrase the 'Yo' Factor. Nice one Randy! Milton?Dryden? They got nuttin' on you! Interestingly, he might become a judge on the "X Factor", go HERE and there was a climax for that story. Download-wise, LOST kicked it up a flippin' notch with probably one of the best episodes so far. it concentrated on Lock and we found out how he came to be in a wheelchairthat could have been a season closer. Well done, stout work. Still watching HEROES which got a bit better now that CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON is in it. One of his first words was "Fantastic", nice one. You don't often see behind-the scenes fighting in films but here are some clips you gotta see. It was on the set of I HEART HUCKABEES (not seen it either, that doesn't matter) and we see two proper fights between an actor and the director (David O. Russell - for more on his crazy antics, click HERE). He physically flips out and lets fly with the language - be warned. It is worth it so have a look.
So who is this "KNUT" I referred to in the title of this blog? You can read about his story HERE but in short he's a cute little polar bear that was rejected by his mother and is now being hand reared by the worst animal of them all - humans! Arg! That little bastid won't last, especially if animals rights activists have their way. They wanna kill him! They've taken it too far goddammit! So they have collectively won this week's CUM DRENCHED WHORE/ VADGE-BATTER SOAKED TOSSER OF THE WEEK AWARD. (It's been a slow week). You can download podcasts of his antics or simply visit YOUTUBE and search for him.
Those CDWs & V-BTs wanna kill me!
I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me - "Can you give me a lift?" I said, "Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, go for it."
