Tonight on Underbelly

Tonight on Underbelly
Think I’ll do this regularly now, though ideally, before the episode airs 🙂 Tonight’s Underbelly is a bit of a side story, focusing on loan sharks and money in the gangsters world. It shows just how some of these characters make a living, and the extremes they’re willing to go to. It also has some ...

For those of you popping on to my new site from the front, I’ve updated the Underbelly feature significantly, with those pics I’ve been promising for weeks now. That story can be found here. Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Why does Australia hate science fiction?

It’s a question I’ve pondered often. While watching a new episode of Torchwood tonight (you can guess where I got that because it doesn’t air here anywhere), I thought of it again, as I have when watching any entertaining sci-fi or fantasy type stuff. I mean, with the possible exception of movies (and then, never ...

Back home … checking the news

Back home from the holiday, catching up on a multitude of news feeds … I see that Joss Whedon’s new series “Dollhouse” is being cast already. Apart from Eliza Dushku, they’ve cast Tahmoh Penikett (Helo from Battlestar Galactica), Fran Kranz, Dichen Lachman and Enver Gjokaj in roles. Only know Penikett, but Joss does well with ...

Frustrated

Frustrated because my blog isn’t publishing but I won’t stop writing on it anyway. Frustrated because I really don’t know why it isn’t working. Frustrated because I’ve setup a new site but I can’t use it yet. Frustrated because the import function in WordPress scan’t find my posts in Blogger. Frustrated because that just slows ...

Joss Whedon’s online comic book comedy musical! 1

Now that was a mouthful! Word from various sources is that Joss Whedon has written and is currently filming a short online film — an oddball comic book musical with some fairly well known actors and well known collaborators. Found this at the Whedonesque blog, best if I just let Joss explain in his own ...

Review: Futurama — the return of geek comedy gods

My brother got me the new Futurama DVD movie for my birthday. He bought it Region 1 from the US, since it isn’t due out in Australia for a few more weeks (I think he bought it before Christmas, but didn’t get it delivered till January). I’m glad to have any kind of early mark ...

Making and breaking

Now that I’m letting myself think I can afford a few things, I am thinking about how to move the PC from the loungeroom (where it’s mostly a media centre but terrible for the task) back to the office/sunroom where it can be used more usefully, especially by Sallie, who’s sick of a nine year ...

Look at this … new 24 sooner than expected

After having decided to skip the whole season of 24 this year due to the writer’s strike (effectively moving the season they’ve quarter-filmed to next January), Fox have revised plans and announced a prequel movie for the season, to air probably around September. Smart move I’d say, given it will be nearly two years between ...

TV: A while till the last season of The Shield

From Michael Ausiello’s TV blog at the US TV guide site, I find this morning that the last season of The Shield, the most amazing, intense, intelligent and well-made cop show of all time, won’t be on until September in the US! It was expected by about April, so there’s some delays, apparently due to ...
