Death Of The Doctor Trailer


Two Trailers for next weeks Who heavy Sarah Jane Adventures have been released.

First is the " Coming Next Week " Trailer

And this is the Official Trailer from the CBBC website:

Ok, I'm starting off... if U.N.I.T thought the Doctor was actually dead... you mean to tell me that Sarah Jane and Jo Grant are the only two companions that they were able to track down?

Ehhhhh I don't think so.

Glee Creator Ryan Murphy Might Direct ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW Remake


Really? I mean fucking really?


From Geektyrant
It's looking like Glee creator Ryan Murphy may end up developing a remake of the cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This is one of those films where I seriously don't see the need for a remake. The original movie has already reached legendary cult status, so what is the reason behind trying to remake it? You would think the hardcore fans are going to hate it.

I don't really care whose behind the project, just because TV show Glee has a solid following, it doesn't justify the remake of this cult classic. Murphy just got finished filming his Glee episode dedication the The Rocky Horror Picture Show, now Fox 2000 is trying to get him on board to take on the project.

The Rocky Horror Picture show came out in 1975 and to this day it still still sells out at midnight shows to fans. The show was written by cast member Richard O'Brien and director Jim Sharman. It launched the careers of Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick and had a cast that included O'Brien, Nell Campbell and Meat Loaf.

Murphy has not committed to the project yet. On top of Glee he is also looking at directing another film called the Normal Heart with Mark Ruffalo. Sony Pictures also paid him a cool $5 million bucks to write and direct a romantic comedy, that would star Julia Roberts. He's got a good amount of work on his plate, so will he add one more big project to it, that he may end up getting a lot of crap for?

I'm sorry but I dont care how fucking great the Glee episode is, do not remake RHPS
MTV tried to remake it 2 years ago and thankfully that fell on its arse.

New Who

Doctor Who returns to our screens this week... well... Kind of.

Matt Smith makes a guest appearance in next weeks Sarah Jane Adventures in and episode entitled "Death Of The Doctor".

Shall this be the start of a new tradition of having the Doctor appear in SJA every season?

Or is it simply a way for Russell T Davis to write one more Doctor Who story?

Death of the Doctor is on the October 25th an 26th

It shall be the only SJA I watch, because try as I might... I really don't like it.

Defenders Of The Earth Live Action Trailer


The great thing about the internet is that, it has taken every drunken or stoner conversation that has ever taken place and helped move it towards reality.

In this case it took the question "Dude... if they made a live action version of 80s Tv Classic Defenders Of The Earth, who would play the main cast?" and answered it with a mash up fan fiction trailer.

Ok, so... a few things.

Bruce Willis as Flash Gordon? Are you for fucking real? He is way too old to play Flash.Even with having a son whos 17-18 he is waaaaaaaaay to old. Daniel Craig however would be spot on.
Christian Bale as Mandrake is perfect casting and although you left out his assistant Kshin I would suggest Dev Patel in the role.
And while I agree Vin Diesel is a good call... I would suggest Rampage Jackson for Lothar, he is the perfect Big Angry Black Guy for the role.

Other than that... fun mash up trailer

Doctor Who Meets Red Dwarf


One of my other favourite BBC made sci fi shows was Red Dwarf (lets not mention the Back To Earth Specials ok)

Its hard to describe why i like it so much, its just random, daft and very silly.
It was so good there was even an abortive attempt at a US remake (I didn't think Star Trek: Voyager was that bad however)

As with with everything these days the Internet has seen fit to smash two worlds together.

So here is a Dwarfian version of the Doctor Who Intro for Trial of a Time Lord

They seem to merge a bit too well.

If you don't think so, try Remembrance of The Daleks ala Red Dwarf

Check out the youtube channel of elixaristhedragon for more of the same along with some classic Who re scored using the music of Murray Gold

Battlestar Galactica & The Enterprise

Battlestar Galactica finished up in March 2009 and it's taken a year and a half for fanboys to spot this hidden Easter egg.

Kirk obviously helped Galactica defeat the Cylon menace by sleeping with all the Threes, Sixes and Eights he could find...

Prostitution Vs Deforestation


This is the best news story of the week as far I'm concerned...

From The Guardian

Environmental organisations today expressed outrage over a plan by local authorities in the Abruzzo region of central Italy to combat prostitution with deforestation.

For decades, local law enforcement and politicians have struggled to police the Bonifica del Tronto road, a haven for the sex trade that runs inland for more than 10 miles from the Adriatic coast alongside the river Tronto. Over the years, cameras have been installed, raids mounted, 24-hour patrols implemented and the mayors of towns near the road have signed bylaws imposing fines on prostitutes' clients. All to no avail.

At the end of last month, the regional government's public works chief, Angelo Di Paolo, announced that the time had come for drastic measures. He said he had agreed with provincial and municipal representatives to cut down all the vegetation "around and along the banks [of the river Tronto]", in which the prostitutes ply their trade.

A local authority "ought to contribute to the solution of problems relating to law and order," said Di Paolo. But in a statement three environmental groups, including the WWF, said that the scheme would destroy 28 hectares (69 acres) of woodland vital to local ecosystems, saying the only crime of the thousands of trees on the local authorities' hit list had been to "offer with their fronds shelter and intimacy to sex slaves".

As everyone knows prostitutes are the most cunning of all woodland creatures, best to get them out now before they start foraging and storing food for the winter.

Also get rid of the "Cespuglio amoroso della prostituta" a nasty evergreen that has been known to "offer with their fronds shelter and intimacy to sex slaves"
