I was looking at the new Doctor Who logo that was released a week or so back, and wondered to myself if I could track down the typeface they used. Maybe it would be easy for fans to make it themselves, for scaling purposes or something.
I was on Twitter and this image of the cast of the movie Clue, painted as caricatures by Jeff Delgado, came up. Reduced to stylised prominent facial features, it made me look at the actors in a new way, and made me wonder who I would cast in a remake, if I wanted contemporary actors who looked very similar and had…
Earlier this year, when I was bored, I had a melody in my head and started writing poetry to that tune about some TV shows. I thought I’d share those poems with you now.
Instead of doing proper work that I ought to be doing, this afternoon I wasted my time on another poster for a movie that doesn’t exist. After a fan tweeted to Karen Gillan that she’d watch a movie with her in it even if it was about postage stamps, I came up with a plot and cast for just such a film.
Tim Omundson, one of my favourite character actors from such shows as Psych, Galavant, Supernatural, and an upcoming stint on Lucifer, amongst many others, suddenly went quiet on Twitter recently, and it seems it was due to a serious illness.
How to make a cheesy comedy movie poster:
One of the things I like to do for fun is make movie posters, which would be a fine career choice except the posters I make are for movies that aren’t being made.
After this article about Missile Command and Centipede movies and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed, Warcraft, and Tomb Raider, it’s clear the hope for a decent movie based on a video game will never die.
As we are about to embark on series M of QI, the UK panel show where our knowledge of interesting facts is reassessed, poked and prodded and laughed at, which will be starting this Friday UK time, news has just hit that this will be perennial host Stephen Fry’s final series, and he will bow to frequent guest Sandi…
The 1990s had a lot of genre shows, but most were space operas, and most of those were Star Trek spin-offs. Having come out of the tail end of shows like Quantum Leap, and heading into new ground with shows like the X-Files, there was now room for a gentle show with only mild supernatural elements. For example: Early…
A teaser for the rebooted Danger Mouse has appeared, and it pokes a little bit of fun at a familiar teaser of recent times.
With a very special guest.
Hannah and Hilly Hindi (that’s their real names) have been making names for themselves in nerd-dom making great parody music videos of geeky properties like Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings. This is their take on the TV series Supernatural and Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off. Stay tuned to the end.
Seems rather prescient, if you ask me.
...and Jennifer Lawrence's character was a confident, super skilled, athletic hero, while Chris Pratt's character was the weaker one who needed rescuing. Is there an existing IP, a comic or video game or book or an old TV series, where they could perfectly slot into those roles?
So here's a weird thing. The new trailer for the next episode of Doctor Who, "In The Forest Of The Night," where London has gone feral and overgrown with jungle, has a brief shot of a double-decker bus which has an ad on the side.
There has been a lot of talk over the years about a Ghostbusters 3 movie. As we all know, the repeated claims that its on its way have yet to bear fruit. Cast members have died since, so even if it got made as originally planned there would be a conspicuous hole, especially as, if Bill Murray/Venkman was not in it…
I don't watch every show that comes down the turnpike, and tend not to read the reviews of the shows I'm not watching, basing most of my retrospective choices on the io9 headlines and general buzz. But what is the general buzz? What have I missed out on? What is must-see TV?
