A US Version Of The IT Crowd Is In The Works... Again

The IT Crowd episode “The Work Outing” is perhaps one of the finest 30 minutes of TV comedy you’ll ever watch. The only expert source I have is any living person with a sense of humour, but I’m OK with that. The rest of the series is excellent of course, so much so in 2006-2007, NBC in the US had a crack at its own version and despite the copy not lasting the distance (well, any distance) back then, NBC is giving it another try now.


Four Seasons Of Game Of Thrones Summarised In A Beautiful Animation

This lovely animation, directed by BlackMeal and Baptiste Pagani, tries to sum up all the major happenings from the first four seasons of Game of Thrones in under a minute.

This Video Replaces The Sounds In Game Of Thrones With Old Video Game Sounds

If you think there’s too much violence and sex and awful human behaviour in Game of Thrones, you’ll enjoy this light hearted remix where all the sounds of the show are replaced with old school video game noises.

Watch Ian McKellen Be Bitchy In PBS' Wonderfully Cruel 'Vicious'

Video: Vicious is a quirky sitcom starring Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, who play Freddie and Stuart, a very cranky gay couple who trade insults at each other all day long. It’s a bit jarring to see these two classically trained actors throw jabs like “rotting corpse” and “big bitch” at each other and they rarely ever leave their musty town home, but the predictability of it works in its favour.


This Video Shows How Pretty Much Everything In Game Of Thrones Is Fake

By now, we know that Game of Thrones uses a heavy VFX hand when it comes to building the world of Westeros but it’s still amazing how real their visual effects can make it look. That’s because pretty much everything is fake. Seriously. Anything far off in the distance or people standing around or flags waving have all been added in digitally.


Halt And Catch Fire Is A Huge Missed Opportunity

Tomorrow in the US, AMC will air the fourth episode of its new series, Halt and Catch Fire. It’s the most comprehensive (fictional) look at the development of the personal computer. Too bad it’s also a huge missed opportunity. (Obvious spoilers ahead).
