Spurious Awards

Short and sweet this week, but the zombie apocalypse is very, very sweet

EXCUSE OF THE WEEK
SFX apologises for the fact that Spurious is either late or early this week (depending on how you look at it) and a tad short, but the dog ate our homework, a meteor landed on the car and a man from the future came back and killed us all as babies. Oh yeah, and Easter and Royal Weddings, and people taking three days off in-between, blah, blah, blah… Anyway, here’s what we cobbled together.

BOLDEST EASTER PROGRAMMING OF THE WEEK

The BBC seemed to go all avant garde with its Easter programming on Saturday. Instead of the usual dramatised versions of the Bible story, the Corporation gave us a very different version of the Easter story. At least, that’s what we think it was. Certainly a man was executed with his arms outstretched in cruciform, and then he was resurrected a little while later. Not sure what was going on exactly, but the astronaut was cool…

UNEXPECTED DOCTOR WHO REMAKE OF THE WEEK

Meanwhile, Doctor Who was back on Saturday evening, though we didn’t think much of the guy playing the new Doctor, and we never expected the return of those robots from the Game Station in “Bad Wolf”. Are the BBC serious? It was a bit rubbish, to be honest.

EXPRESSION OF THE WEEK

Nope, it’s not Sarah showing Chuck what his shag face looks like. She’s doing an impression of him having a flash (which, out of context, doesn’t sound much better).

DANCE ROUTINE OF THE WEEK

On The Vampire Diaries Katherine does a great impression of an art deco lamp during a sexy romp that outclassed anything on So You Think You Can Dance .

STREET POET OF THE WEEK
Ex Doctor Who script editor Chris Bidmead during the Frontios DVD commentary: “A real steal from Nigel Kneale.”

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE OF THE WEEK
Take a gander at this trailer for the new zombie level for the Escalation Map pack for Call Of Duty: Black Ops . There are a few faces you might recognise (we don’t want to spoil the surprise). And the vampire King is the cameo to beat all cameos.

POSTERS OF THE WEEK
Why are we waiting? Joss Whedon’s horror movie Cabin In The Woods has been subject to no end of delays, as someone over at the film’s official Twitter feed decided to acknowledge:

HOLY METAMORPHOSING LOGO OF THE WEEK
