Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: KNOW IT?

ZARQUON'S FLAT TIRE, I'M NOT A REPUBLIC SERIAL VILLAIN.

DO YOU SERIOUSLY THINK I'D EXPLAIN THE FONT IF THERE REMAINED THE SLIGHTEST CHANCE OF YOU AFFECTING ITS WHIMSICALITY?

I USED IT THIRTY-FIVE MINUTES AGO.


The Great Prophet Zarquon asks that you not use his name in vain...

...Well, he would if he ever returned.

timujin: Wellon Dowd: When is Cumberbatch going stop playing roles made famous by other actors? Holmes. Khan. He needs to find a character to make his own. My knowledge of this actor is limited to two roles, therefore that is all he has ever done.

FTFY.

bborchar: I'm really looking forward to the "Neverwhere" premiere this Saturday- Benedict Cumberbatch, Christopher Lee, and James McAvoy are all performing it, which is just an amazing. I'm have something else going on this Saturday, but I may have to push it off until after the show is over XD


WHoa whoa whoa, stop everything else and tell me if you just said what I think you did.  That Bendeict Cummerbatch, Christopher Lee, and James McAvoy are performing Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere.

Now tell me how I go about seeing that.

It's a radio play, so if you want to see it I'd suggest LSD or some other hallucinogen.

Good show. Watched what was available on Netflix just last week...

But I found an even better show there - Sadly, no more episodes to come. Man I loved every minute if it though...

Depending on what they do to the first guy he could be ok, but holy shiat Cummerbatch as Ramsey Snow?  (no decree from a bastard born of incest can legitimize him)

"Cabin Pressure" just finished up its 4th series on BBC radio not long ago.  I believe you can actually find the first 3 series on iTunes now, and "Neverwhere" will be airing on BBC Radio 4 this Saturday.

I see what you did there.

Go find and watch season 1 right now. Then tell us that Iwan Rheon isn't one of the creepiest farkers you've ever seen.

Seasons 1 and 2 are on Netflix streaming (ironically, I was watching season 1 again last night).

Cumberbatch and Freeman have a great rapport, watching them as Bilbo and Smaug in the next Hobbit movie will be fun (They are doing Smaug the same way they do Gollum (motion capture performance, so we'll be getting a little Cumberbatch action in there as well.)
