Spurious Awards Of The Week

Familiar-Looking Room Of The Week

Evil game coders in Continuum create their own Dreamatorium! We hope Abed is suing*. Quite why they even need a Dreamatorium is unclear. “Come play on our new VR game!” says evil coder, and when you see this room you’re thinking, “Wow, they’ve invented a holodeck!” Nope – Betty and Keira have to wear old-fashion VR helmets. So those squares are just a piece of freaky interior design.

(* With no apologies to anyone who doesn’t get this gag, because you really should be buying Community box-sets.)

New Olympic Sport Of The Week

Misfits in training for Extreme Pissing competition…

Overenthusiastic Nipple Tweaking Of The Week

Bad Hair Day Of The Week

True Blood ’s Pam with a dead poodle on her head.

In-Joke Of The Week

(Well, okay “…of last week”, to be honest, but this was too good not to use.) The final ever episode of Eureka was full of sly little references to Syfy axing the show, and this was one of our favourites. It's the DoD manifest requesting Global Dynamics to turn over all its assets to them. Note the CCs in the top right (click on the image for a larger version) are all prop or art department staff at Syfy.


Hair-raising heels/rickety steps moment in Sinbad . Let’s hope there aren’t Bloopers from this scene on the DVD box-set – it could have been very nasty!

UK Remake Of Transformers Of The Week


Actually, it’s a piece of artwork created for the Olympics.

Disturbing But Oddly Cool Art Project Of The Week

Here’s something a little different from the usual glut of Portal wedding cakes and My Little Pony / Doctor Who crossovers. They were created by Sam Bradbury, an artist from Falmouth, Cornwall. “I thought you might be interested in some of my recent art work,” he emails us. "Although I normally work with etching and sculptural work, I've also been working on some pretty strange looking comic book hero collages . Originally the idea was to show the level of detail and difference in the style of a single artist in a single comic issue but the more I began putting Superman together the more grotesque and deformed he became. I then took this as the new collage objective and began work on Spider-Man and Batman. I’m currently beginning work on the Hulk.” We honestly can’t wait!

Just Plain Disturbing Art Project Of The Week

In-Car Entertainment System Of The Week

Wouldn’t it be great if all this guy ever played was Classic FM? Just one of the many vehicles from the new Mad Max film posted on Ain’t It Cool News .

Mystifying Photofit Of The Week

Recognise this man? Nope? We don’t blame you. It’s supposed to be Dracula. We’re not convinced. The Composites is a tumblr which uses police sketch software to recreate popular fictional characters. And while it’s no shock that he doesn’t look like Bela Lugosi, we’re not entirely convinced by The Composites’ work. Here’s the description in the book:

"A tall old man, clean shaven save for a long white moustache... His face was a strong, a very strong, aquiline, with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils , with lofty domed forehead...His eyebrows were very massive, almost meeting over the nose, and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion . The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking... For the rest, his ears were pale, and at the tops extremely pointed . The chin was broad and strong , and the cheeks firm though thin...The blue eyes transformed with fury."

Right, okay, so where is exactly is the bushy, curly hair? The strong chin? The Chris Barrie nostrils? We not sure we’d put these guys in charge of a manhunt…

Potential Syfy Movie Of The Week Of The Week

Lego Batman Of The Week

One-fifth sized Caped Crusader, fully articulated. Well, it’s got to be more articulate than Christian “growler” Bale’s version of Batman. Created by MMCCooey and there are loads more images here .

Doctor Who Menagerie Of The Week

Ah, this week it’s not My Little Pony – it’s Fimo owls . The internet has fulfilled its purpose now. It can shut down.
