The Casual Vacancy Episode 3

The Casual Vacancy Episode 3 finally puts itself out of its misery, and a good job too as, quite frankly, over the course of these three weeks I could’ve pulled a better story out of my arse!

Howard and Miles are fussing over the vandalism on the front of the former’s pie shop, adorned with the election poster for the latter, with the added scrawl, “I like soapy tit-wanks”.

Fortitude Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 6

Fortitude Episode 6 starts with a flashback, jumping a few episodes back to when Frank was having it away with Elena. Jules is seen heading out without a hat on, and is chanced upon by Henry, who insists frostbite can severely knacker your ears and wants her to take his hat because he doesn’t live far away and can make it home without it. She refuses, but since she’s wearing a big parka jacket, WHY DIDN’T SHE JUST PULL HER BLOODY HOOD UP!!?!???

Ode to a lack of House of Fools tonight (2.3.15)

Ode to a lack of House of Fools tonight
Ode to a lack of House of Fools tonight… is my ode to erm.. well, you know.

I love House of Fools starring Vic Reeves, Bob Mortimer and Matt Berry, to name but three, but… it’s not on tonight because of Let’s Play Darts For Comic Relief!

So I therefore sang a song in the style of Beef (Matt Berry’s character)…

House of Fools will return next Monday on BBC2 at 10pm.

Leonard Nimoy to be honoured by Elite Dangerous

Leonard Nimoy, the Star Trek legend, as well as an accomplished writer and director in his own right, sadly passed away on Friday afternoon. He lives long and he prospered…

Fans and friends around the world were saddened to learn of this news, including the makers of the fantastic space-trading game Elite Dangerous, and Frontier’s executive producer Michael Brookes has announced that a new station will be added to the orbit of the planet Vulcan, system LHS-3006.

UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e March 7th 2015

March 7th 2015Ellie Goulding stays at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e March 7th 2015, with Love Me Like You Do, taken from the recent big cinema release, Fifty Shades of Grey, and it’s a drippy power ballad without any real power.

There’s just one new entry in the Top 10: a No.7 for Kelly Clarkson with Heartbeat Song, while Madonna took at a tumble at The Brits while singing her no.26 hit Living For Love. Certainly didn’t inspire anyone to buy the record in great numbers!

Hardware 25th Anniversary Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

hardwareb

hardware

Hardware is set out in the sticks, or what would pass for the sticks amongst a desolate planet. Moses Baxter (Dylan McDermott) finds and brings home the head of a defective maintenance droid, found out in the Zone by a Nomad, also known as a Zone Runner, since his better half, Jill (Stacey Travis), makes a living putting sculptures together and this piece would complete the picture nicely. Big mistake.

The setting for Hardware isn’t a dodgy ITV sitcom from 2003 with cardboard sets and unfunny jokes, but is actually a post-apocalyptic future world teeming with radiation and this particular type of government project droid, codenamed Mark 13, never came to fruition because it was deemed to malfunction – and how!

Ana Maria in Novela Land – Official Trailer #1 – Luis Guzmán Comedy HD

Ana-Maria-in-Novela-LandAna Maria In Novela Land stars Edy Ganem as the titular heroine who is having a bad day until she magically switches places with the main character of her favorite telenovela. As she struggles to escape from Novela Land, Ana Maria finally understands why her real life was such a mess.

The film also stars Mercedes Mason, Sung Kang, Luis Guzmán, Tamara Taylor, and Elizabeth Peña, for whom this was sadly her last film as she died in October last year from cirrhosis of the liver.

It was directed by Georgina Riedel, who also co-wrote with Jose Nestor Marquez, and is basically another body swap comedy in the style of Freaky Friday. It looks okay, but since the trailer goes on for three minutes, I feel like I’ve seen the whole film already! How long do trailers need to be??

Ana Maria In Novela Land is released this weekend in the US, but hasn’t yet got a UK release date. I’m not wholly sold on the premise but as it’s the final film for Elizabeth Peña, it’ll have to be a must-see.

Critical Series 1 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

critical-1b

critical
Critical is the first new series from former doctor Jed Mecurio since Line of Duty, which saw its second series air on BBC2 in March last year, but he’s also responsible for the wonderful Cardiac Arrest and Bodies, plus the amusing The Grimleys. So, you can depend on him to come up with the goods, surely?

A major trauma is due in via the helipad, and everyone is gearing up with their best “serious” face, the cast featuring the token fat lad with a chewing gum fixation, the token Indian doctor, the token newbie, the token bossy boss, and so on.
