Fringe , V , urinal skirmishes, Lost star in Dr Moreau mash-ups and loads more nonsense
RETRO GAMER OF THE WEEK

MECHANICAL BALLERINA OF THE WEEK
V ’s Anna is just too late to enter her version of The Dying Swan for Let’s Dance For Comic Relief .
UNEXPECTED CROSSOVER OF THE WEEK
Narnia meets Being Human . The extras on the Being Human Series Three DVD include a set tour by Sinead Keenan, where she sweetly gets so lost she can’t even find Nina and George’s bedroom (“I usually have a PA to get me there!”). She then reveals that there’s a whole other world through those wardrobe doors. Though not a very exciting-looking one, to be honest.
EXQUISITE TIMING OF THE WEEK
The creators of the new Voltron Force ’toon have been releasing images onto their Facebook page for a while now. But with what we hope was a witty bit of marketing and not just a pure coincidence, they released a pic of the Green Lion on St Patrick’s Day.
HYPERBOLE OF THE WEEK
“This may very well be the greatest thing to ever derive from Lost .” Not our words. The words of former Lost producer Damon Lindelof. Luckily he was Tweeting it, not saying it, otherwise it might have come out as, “Mmmmffff…mmmffff… mmmffff” as he tried to speak through that tongue in his cheek. And there are more where these came from .
COOLEST HOME CINEMA VIEWING ROOM OF THE WEEK EVER
Created by Custom Home Systems of San Diego for a Honolulu mansion , it’s designed to make you feel like you’re in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon (though we reckon it has more of Trek vibe, not that that diminishes its awesomeness) and boasts an 107-inch screen. Right, if we all have a whip round…?
BEST-DRESSED FORMER X-FILES STAR OF THE WEEK
From this week’s Californication : Hank Moody (David Duchovny) is preparing to go to court. He's wearing a suit. In walks his missus.
“You look great,” she observes.
“I look like a f**king FBI agent ,” he replies.
We get the feeling Hank wouldn’t like Mulder very much.
CRIME INCIDENT RECREATION OF THE WEEK
We prefer it to Crimewatch .
IMAGE OF THE WEEK
What if The X-Men had starred in The Hangover ? By Rubio, via Geek Tyrant .
GENRE MASH-UP OF THE WEEK
What if Mario were to star in an arty indie film? A great little short film that did the rounds at the SXSW film festival.
