Arachnophobe: notmtwain: Where will they get the Twinkies?

We already live in a post-apocalyptic future, long past the expiration date of the last remaining Twinkies.

[ image 500x400]

That picture is either Photoshopped or it's on the DVD as an extra scene. I just looked at the Youtube clip of that scene and the characters don't line up and there are no Twinkies in any frames of that scene.
/ Will check the DVD later.

JohnBigBootay: bborchar: How long before the zombie-themed shows/books/movie/everything fad is officially over?

I would say as long as you have product with decent casting, plot, and writing.... never. The backdrop hardly matters if everything else is in place. vampires, ghosts, werewolves, witches, wizards and aliens have endured for quite a long time as 'things we use to tell fictional tales'. I see no problem with having zombies in the mix.

It'll be a while. I figure it'll last until the next thing starts. Before zombies we had 20 years of vampire dominance. (We're still seeing vampires, and though I think Twilight is annoying, those particular undead have found refuge in a young audience and I think will once again rise.) I think we still have 8-10 years of the "zombie heyday." What's next? Vampires again, probably. Who knows? I think zombies and vampires (and to a lesser extent, werewolves) are all popular because they're all communicable conditions (by bite). Ghosts and mummies don't have that going for them. Vampires can be sexy, zombies not so much. Though we might start seeing a hybridization of the zombie and vampire into something new.

Depending on how well "Warm Bodies" does we might start seeing more sexified zombies and zombie experimentation and zombie evolution. This might give the zombie an un-life extension.

Are werewolves due for a comeback? I just don't think so...

Personally, I'm pulling for aliens. Or maybe Zombaliens.

AnotherBluesStringer: LucklessWonder: AnotherBluesStringer: Evil Mackerel: AnotherBluesStringer: Netflix seems to be pretty good at their original programming. I enjoyed Lilyhammer and I'm super-excited for House of Cards. Having Arrested Development back as a Netflix show doesn't hurt, even if it isn't a Netflix original.

I agree, Ian Richardson was fantastic in House of Cards.

I was talking about the re-make (or at least I think it's a remake) with Kevin Spacey. I've never seen the original. Is it worth watching?
/"Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?"

Very much so, Richardson plays a fantastic magnificent bastard. (Note: have not seen the Spacey version)

The Spacey version isn't out yet. Netflix revamped it for the American audience with Spacey as the lead. They'll be releasing it soon though.

Check out the trailer:

Looks pretty good.

Spacey is one of those rare actors who you will watch anything he's in, even if you were told the show sucked, because how can it possibly suck if he's in it?

Katie Couric's Crotch: Doesn't double tap mean to kill?

Yes indeed. In fact, "double tap" goes beyond the mere inflicting of a fatal wound to make doubly sure that someone is dead by insisting on the wisdom of imparting a second shot just to be sure.

The headline means exactly the opposite of what it says.

//  Unfortunately, this headline was only single redlit, so it came back to life.

This will be 1000 times better then walking dead - that show had promise in season 1 and then it went right in the shiatter. Might as well add some comedy - maybe add Simon Pegg into the mix too. Also it better have more Bill Murray... and snakes on a motherfarking plane
