It’s to honour Jules Verne. Interactive steampunk ahoy!

Of course someone’s already created a nifty Davos/Davros graphic to match my pernicious brane’s wilful conflation. My faith in cyberspace is vindicated.

What if, every time a woman was called fat, she laughed?
So tweeted Margot Magowan to sum up the awesomeness that was Kim Clijsters this week.

I really should listen to my good friend and work colleague who tells me not to watch Sunrise because it makes me angry. But as I was watching the tennis last night, that was the program on this morning when I flicked on the TV to see how long it had taken Nadal to defeat [...]

Pippi is everything I wanted to be as a child but didn’t know how – outrageous, loud, anti-authoritarian, strong, free-spirited, messy, generous, powerful, and brutally honest. She is self-sufficient, thinks “ladylike” is a loud of hooey, and is an efficient dispenser of justice to bullies. Her shoes are too big, her clothes are a mess, she can lift a horse over her head, and nobody knows what to do with her. What’s not to like?

on Saturday night I found myself watching a late-night 1950s black and white movie – something I haven’t done much of since the demise of Bill Collins and Ivan Hutchinson’s shows. Oh, how I used to love those old black and white movies (cue massive eyeroll from the kids). Some of the interest lies in a mixture of plot points which appear to have been written while dropping acid combined with gender and class expectations which are all too real.

Say what? Gervais got famous by making people uncomfortable at why they are laughing at his material, by deliberately crossing boundaries of “good taste”, and he also has a mean streak. This is not A Great Big Showbiz Secret.

Tell me, pop culture vultures, is not the villainous Colonel Stuart (William Sadler) in Die Harder - is he not absolutely the celluloid lovechild of Keir Dullea in 2001: A Space Odyssey and Ed Harris in The Right Stuff?

This preview was broadcast on BBC One immediately following the 2010 Christmas special in the UK (and what did you think of that, eh?). Those who don’t like teasers/spoilers might like to avoid this thread.
