Thomas à Becket, or at least a bit of him, returned to Canterbury today - 845 years after he was murdered. The fragment of martyr’s bone is revered in Hungary as a symbol of Catholic resistance against communism.
It’s a sadly common experience to look back at old media with new eyes and find faults you never knew were there. Comedy in particular seems susceptible to aging poorly, partly because the progression society makes over the years makes jokes that once were acceptable become distasteful. Rewatching any comedy you…
Today’s Guardian has a profile of Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso. Check it out!
The first two episodes of a new miniseries based on the short stories Foreign Parts, Feeders & Eaters, Closing Time & Looking for the Girl, are on UK satellite channel Sky Arts tonight at 9pm, followed next week by the last two episodes. Unfortunately it’s on Sky Arts though so I don’t know how many people here who…
“You got a demon in you.”
I have a lot to say about this episode!
Describe yourself to me in one word. I always hated that question on job interviews. How do you promote yourself without coming off as conceited or delusional (as the case may be).

Candace Payne is back with that mask. This time she has company.

Expect a make-up entry as well, but for now let’s get on to what may be the most controversial episode in the history of Star Trek.
We open with…
O’Brien gets his own episode and flower units lark’s true pepper. Let birds go further loose maybe. Shout “Easy Play!” Round the turbulent quick. Well, close the reverse harbor. Ankle, try sound. Reset gleaming. Dinner to bug. When?
This week I rewatched two more episodes of The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. This time we board a riverboat then deal with some pirates. Now that we’re past the episode switch up these next two are in the same order they aired. Saddle up and prepare to ride with the Chin That Won The West.
“The Door.” Unsullied Eyes is a discussion space for Game of Thrones viewers who have not read the books. Be warned that there are spoilers for the latest Game of Thrones episode after the jump. The purpose of this discussion space is so that we can talk about the show as is. Book readers are welcome, but please…
Never mind the fate of Jon Snow, actor Kit Harington managed to drop a few explosive revelations in an interview with Andrew Marr this morning (yes, you saw Marr in Doctor Who: Aliens of London and yes they do trust him to present real current affairs programmes).
I came across this video by chance — and was fascinated. Such extravaganza of self-directed irony, subtle social commentary, and eye-popping color!
But for me, it is great because it was created by the Ukrainian studio.
I like ads like this — gender-sensitive, fun, and without objectification of women (and men in princess dress are always welcome!). I wish more ads were like this. It is an ad for Ukrainian mineral water, which I used to love — but ever since the manufacturer was purchased by a Russian company I had to give it up.…
