How seductive! She's not bad either.
Yup, it's ALEX "A Poor Man's TRACEY-ANN OBERMAN" KINGSTON
and COLIN "Remember Me In ALIEN VS PREDATOR? No??" SALMON (he's the one on the right)
who will appear together in a story that includes an 'abandoned library' see the full story HERE. Exciting!
The DAILY STAR
has regurgitated the 'companion-fest finale' that THE SUN
reported some time ago - see HERE
This was a good explosion.TV-wise, TORCHWOOD
delivered another good episode but this time it was a bit more measured. The pacing was quite
pleasant although it did get a bit crazy towards the explosive finale. There were the usual
points that bugged me a little with the speedier pace in the second-half denying a full explanation as to what was going on. Good moment though when the 'guy' was asked when his chums were coming - he said, "They're already here"
Also nice was the arm effect going on with the, erm
, 'bad guys'. It was written by JAMES "Seen SEVERANCE? No? Well I Wrote That" MORAN
who was given a WHO script for the upcoming series due its high quality. Can't say that I thought the script was particularly outstanding and the story itself is an old one too. Still, most enjoyable nonetheless.
The DR WHO budget gets cut again.
Elsewhere in TV Land, MOVING WALLPAPER
got stale (and by that I mean unfunny)
rather quickly with no laughs in third or fourth episodes. I'll give it one more then that's it - I'm outta
there. AMERICAN IDOL
was satisfying although the episodes were only an hour each, bah! BUZZCOCKS
also delivered pleasingly with JAMES "I Was In SPACED Don'tcha Know" LANCE
getting a lot of attention from AMSTELL
. Interestingly, UKTV DRAMA
has been screening 'classic' WHO at tea-time which has been a welcome treat. They've started with TOM "I Bet He Hates Peter Davison" BAKER
, have omitted certain stories. Anyway, this week saw one of my favourites, TERROR OF THE ZYGONS
. Great stuff.
To make up for all the ugmo
pictures in the last post, here's are some 'beautiful' people:
You think someone would've cleared the glasses!
, to balance it up, here are some pictures of men not at their best. First up, the narrator's narrator
, MORGAN "Deep Impact" FREEMAN
Why's he shocked? He's just seen Shatner [see below].
You may be thinking, "Hey Cam, he don't look so bad!"
Well, you obviously ain't looking at his ears. Don't worry though, it gets better. Next up, JAMIE "Ladies Man" THEAKSTON
He's just pumped a CDW!
Pretty bad but not awful
, agreed - that's still to come. For this next pic I'll reign it in a little with the always 'delightful' JACK "I'm Pretty Sure It Touched Your Kids" BLACK
It's getting bad when your T-Shirt is the joke.
No, I don't like his hair either. And he could have ironed that T-Shirt. Or got someone to do it for him. Lastly in my occasional look at "Famous Men Lookin' Like Sh*t"
, here's the best - it's only flippin' WILLIAM "James Spader In A Few Years" SHATNER
No wonder they don't want him in the upcoming STAR TREK flick!
Speaking of films, my catch~up
of 2007 continues. First up, SHOPGIRL
although I think it was actually 2006 but you get the idea. CLAIRE "Ooo, You Saucy Cow" DANES
continues to beguile me with her beauty and does some top acting which is more than can be said for her co~stars. Well worth a watch though. DEATH AT A FUNERAL
provided no laughs whatsoever and served only to ask the question: "DAISY DONOVAN, what happened to you?"
Also laugh (as well interest)
-free was REIGN OVER ME
which I will not waste any time over except to say, "ADAM SANDLER, you are a pr*ck!"
. Which is annoying 'cos
he was so
good on PUNCH DRUNK LOVE
. Lastly I caught JUNO
which I don't think has been released here yet so I'll lay off anything 'spoiler-ish'. It's not as funny (or original or edgy)
as people would have you believe. It has all the tenets of the indie film - uber
cool cast and even 'cooler' soundtrack (all achingly hip acoustic angst, though it was nice to hear BELLE & SEBASTIAN)
but, like KNOCKED UP
, it's surprisingly
mainstream. ELLEN "Is She Too Young To Do A Sex Gag About?" PAGE
is fab in it and has rightly been awarded an OSCAR nod. If you remember, I flagged her abilities up quite sometime ago in THIS
post from the summer of '06. Also charming was MICHAEL "Milk It While You Can" CERA
who was reunited with his onscreen ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
dad, JASON "Teen Wolf Too" BATEMAN
. What surprised me most is that those effers
at the OSCARS have given this a best director nod - overlooking both SWEENEY TODD
and THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES etc... F**king idiots!
Speaking of idiots.Life-wise,
I had an exam this week. It was for English and guess
what? There was a spelling mistake on the effin'
question paper! I know! They managed to spell "dramatic"
incorrectly, they used the more informal, "dramamtic"
. I let the course convener (who happened to be invigilating)
know this at the end of the exam which I then immediately regretted as that guy will probably be marking my paper. D'oh!
Still, it should be my last English exam as I have transferred to Film exclusively
. In other 'life' news, which is rare for this blog (as you know)
, I got a 'comic' today, check it
I'm not normally
a comic-buyer but this was a special
moment. That particular bit of literature was created by blog~reader and
commenter RICHARD STARKINGS
who is based in the US. I haven't told him I bought it so this will hopefully be a nice surprise for him
. Mind you
, he's been producing them for a while so I doubt that my contribution to his Empire
will make much
difference. If any other readers have anything up for purchase, I am happy to support those who support me, then make sure it's nice and cheap like the 'comic'. Only £2, bargain!
'Til the next time,C.
