★ Well, the Oscar nominees are in, so it's that time again: ( and the oscar goes to....Collapse )
★ I don't know how I avoided it this long, but The Walking Dead is pretty damn fantastic. I'd never have thought I'd be into something like that, but I LOVE THIS SHOW. Andrew Lincoln is hot.
It's an excellent show regardless of your interest in zombies. It explores the human relationships stressed to the limit in dire situations which is ripe for good drama. Don't get me wrong...there is still a bunch of zombie goodness to enjoy, but the main focus and where most of the drama is created is from the human interaction between all of the survivors. It is a lot like Battlestar Galactica in that respect. There, all humans but 50K die in a robot uprising and now they must survive. But it isn't (just) a show about robots. So you should all give BSG a change. (can't resist a shameless plug) I STILL MISS THIS SHOW SFM. I AM HOPING MY CAPS LOCK WILL CONVINCE EVERYONE.
★ Speaking of BSG, just saw the news! Jamie
Bamber is to star in BBC's major new sci-fi drama about the colonisation of a new planet, Outcasts. Sounds like BSG season 5 but I don't mind. It's gonna be nice to have him back on my screen.
