Dead Set on Zombie Love

Categories: Television

Dead Set logoI just saw the first episode of Dead Set, a series mashing Big Brother and zombie horror, with the contestants unaware of the outside world. It's great. I can't wait to see the rest of the series.

There's an associated site that's worth checking.

It has a good IMDB rating. The official website has spoilers, so try to avoid going there.

The Big Bang Theory

Categories: Television
Embrace your inner genius

I really enjoy The Big Bang Theory. (Official site.)

Is it bad that I understand, or think I do, the many science and pulp culture references? Am I laughing at me when I'm laughing?

Sheldon wears some of the coolest geek t-shirts.

The theme song is by Barenaked Ladies and the following video takes the show's credits and extends it to the end of the song.

Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait...
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unravelling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!

"Since the dawn of man" is really not that long,
As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song.
A fraction of a second and the elements were made.
The bipeds stood up straight,
The dinosaurs all met their fate,
They tried to leap but they were late
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
The oceans and pangea
See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya
Set in motion by the same big bang!

It all started with the big BANG!

It's expanding ever outward but one day
It will cause the stars to go the other way,
Collapsing ever inward, we won't be here, it wont be hurt
Our best and brightest figure that it'll make an even bigger bang!

Australopithecus would really have been sick of us
Debating out while here they're catching deer (we're catching viruses)
Religion or astronomy, Encarta, Deuteronomy
It all started with the big bang!

Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology
It all started with the big bang!
It all started with the big BANG!

My Gay BFF

Categories: Announcements, Television

I got a contact via this site for a new US game show, My Gay BFF. They are currently casting for it, and contestants must be in the US.

I'm promoting it because instead of just emailing me, they used the contact form and personalised the messge, so I thought I'd share the love.

If anyone gets on the show after finding out about it here, I want to know!

Have you seen a blowfish driving a sports car?

"Excuse me. Have you seen a blowfish driving a sports car?

"Thank you."

"Bloody Torchwood!"

Yah! It's back.

The Doctor (not that one), the carer, the technician, and the eye candy.
