First up this week is Adam Englebright’s excellent review of Matt Smith’s apparently fantastic first episode as the new Doctor Who. One for me to catch on the iPlayer later this week, it seems.
On a similar review tip, Andy Johnson’s post about Inglourious Basterds is definitely worth a read (and the film is equally worth your time, by the way).
Ewan Aiton’s questioning of the suitability of certain Easter presents makes it in purely for its last line, while Ian Dransfield’s The Imaginarium of Dr. Ianassus wins best title of the week as well as being wonderfully surreal in its own right.
Meanwhile, Pete Davison proves he’s a man after my own heart by admitting how bad he is at strategy games (I can guarantee I’m even worse). Sam Morris’s entertaining entry about hating PC World also made me nod in agreement. And though admitting you have a soft spot for Man United is normally a sure-fire way to get in my bad books, Mat Murray’s post about Wayne Rooney’s injury is more than deserving of a mention here.
