AND so Series 3 of The Walking Dead has shuffled to an end, and what a change from the awful second season. Although there’s been plenty of yapping this time around at least it didn’t get in the way of some bloody excellent action sequences and even (gasp!) some character development. (Especially in the case of Merle, who developed from a human being to a zombie before being face-stabbed to death by his own brother, and unlike T-Dog who was killed off after barely saying a word for about 15 episodes). The only problem is, this didn’t feel like a finale. […]
NO RECAP of 70s public safety films would be complete without the badly-animated adventures of Charley the cat and his deformed owner, whose name you never learned as his mother was probably too ashamed of birthing such a monstrosity to give it a human moniker (he was actually called Tony). Produced by the Central Office of Information, with Charley being voiced by the brilliant Kenny Everett, the undynamic duo appeared in six one-minute clips teaching little kids the dangers of rivers, matches, teapots(!), tables, picnics and strangers, all things that were apparently just waiting to kill kids in 70s Britain:

HO-LEE shit. Is that Rick slamming a machete into a non-zombie’s head without a second thought? Have I tuned into a parallel universe in which The Walking Dead is actually good and people don’t spend 45 minutes sitting around a farm talking?
I’d nearly given up on The Walking Dead by the end of last season because watching a bunch of people talking about stuff on a farm instead of, you know, killing zombies in numerous gruesome ways was becoming too much. But I decided to give the third series a go out of what I’m guessing is misplaced loyalty, or maybe just because […]
CHUCK NORRIS sucks. There, I’ve said it now at last. If anyone deserves a whole internet meme about how tough they are it’s British actor Peter Cushing. Why? Well…
He killed Dracula. FIVE TIMES.
He created Frankenstein’s Monster. FOUR TIMES.
He destroyed the Daleks. TWICE.
He took on Big Brother.
He played an entire scene backwards.
He travelled to the earth’s core.
He outsmarted Moriarty and killed the Hound of the Baskervilles:

DAMMIT, another Dr Who companion has died. Mary Tamm, who played Romana I from 1978-9, passed away from cancer aged 62. Like Caroline John she only appeared in one series, from “The Ribos Operation” to “The Armageddon Factor”, the six adventures that made up the “Key To Time” story arc.
Mary’s character of Time Lady Romanadvotrelundar was supposed to be The Doctor’s equal, but as The Doctor at the time was Tom Baker she didn’t really have a chance. She was haughty, sarcastic, aloof and, it must be said, gorgeous. She was a good foil for Baker’s arrogant and manic portrayal of the […]
