I don't talk about him much, but I rather adore Richard Ayoade.

Below is him in the 2010 (?) Big Fat Quiz of the Year with the equally delightful Noel Fielding. This is their answer to "What three items did Gordon Brown allegedly throw at his colleagues while he was Prime Minster?"

I think I've gone back to caring about the character stuff and putting the actual mystery in the backseat again.

Or rather, Mads Mikkelsen and Scott Thompson.

I always LOVE how cheerful the cast of Hannibal is despite the show's gruesome set up. Their discussion of how wee Hugh Dancy is is kind of incredible.

FX is doing a remake of the film, Fargo as a 10 episode miniseries. And it has Martin Freeman in it.

You can check out the trailer HERE. It's brief but you get a taste of Freeman's Minnesotan accent.

A rather quiet episode for me with some nice character moments.

After getting my mother to watch Torchwood, Doctor Who, and Sherlock, it seemed only fair that she finally hook me into a favorite show of hers. And thus, I began watching the original Mission: Impossible.

The only things I knew about this show were that Peter Graves was in it, tapes tended to self-destruct, at one point Leonard Nimoy was also in it, and the extremely catchy iconic theme song. I was surprised that the show was actually something very different then what I thought it would be.

No spoilersCollapse )

Random fun trivia: While watching the first two seasons, I noted that Martin Landau had the look to be a good Vulcan. Turns out, Gene Roddenberry agreed with me as he was the first choice to play Spock. Landau turned it down to be on this show instead. Later, after Landau left Mission: Impossible, Leonard Nimoy got cast to replace him. Small world.

He sounds pretty much exactly the way I imagined. Also, Cecil is behaving pretty well for him and Steve Carlsberg. Sort of.

A tale of bank robbers and Mayan vampires that might be an allegory about families dealing with mental illness.
