Merlin has been cancelled, just when it was getting really good

26 November 2012 3:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Merlin as we know it will not be returning to our Saturday teatime screens, and I for one am quite upset

After five years, Merlin is about to bite the dust. Despite hopes that the series would be renewed for a sixth year, it has been announced that the show will wrap up with a two-part story at Christmas. There may be films or spinoffs after that, which could either continue the story or reboot it completely, but that's beside the point. Merlin as we know it won't be coming back, and I for one am quite upset.

The biggest joy of Merlin came from watching it improve year on year. When it began, for all its flashy production values, Merlin basically told the same story every week.

A disgruntled sorcerer would sneak into Camelot, angered by King Uther's hawkish anti-magic stance, and try to kill Prince Arthur. Then Merlin »

Wild Nothing – Nocturne Review

25 August 2012 7:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I didn’t go to Reading, or Leeds, this year. I haven’t woken this morning in a field. No, I’ve woken this morning surrounded by empty cans wearing pyjama bottoms and a Converge T Shirt. Most painful of all about my not having gone to Reading, or Leeds, most heartachingly painful of all, is that I didn’t see The Cure play a majestic three hour set.

Watching them from the comfort of my bed, attired in the aforementioned, on BBC iPlayer is not the same. Hangover breakfast of champions or not; gammon steak and scrambled egg (I like protein) splashed with mustard and red sauce. Chased of course with a coffee and a cigarette.

However, by way of compensation I have been gifted with something this week. That something is Wild Nothing’s sophomore effort Nocturne. How this is compensation will be made clear soon. »

“I've been drawing since I was four years old,” states American Illustrator Loston Wallace whose fascination with comic books, cartoons, science fiction, and horror films, such as the Universal Monster classics, is reflected in his artwork. “My formal art training came from attending the Joe Kubert School of Cartooning and Graphic Art where I met my wife Carolyn.” The native of Clintwood, Virginia began his professional career by illustrating role-playing games such as Deadlands: The Weird West, Battletech, Indiana Jones, and Shadowrun. “In 1998, I began freelancing for the DC Comics Licensing Department, where I illustrated children's books based on Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series.” The job would last for 12 years and during that time Wallace produced books for Krypto the Superdog and The DC Super Friends. “In 2001, I was one »

Jury Finds Balfour Guilty In Hudson Family Murder Trial

11 May 2012 8:29 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Chicago — A Chicago jury convicted Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson's former brother-in-law on Friday of murdering her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in what prosecutors described as an act of vengeance by a jilted husband.

Hudson, who expressed her undisguised disdain for William Balfour when she took the witness stand and endured weeks of excruciating testimony about the 2008 killings, was overcome with emotion as the verdict was read. She bit her lip, tears welling in her eyes and streaming down her cheeks. She then looked at her sister, Julia Hudson, and smiled.

The sisters left the courthouse without speaking to reporters but released a statement Friday night extending a prayer to the Balfour family, saying "we have all suffered terrible loss in this tragedy."

"It is our prayer that the Lord will forgive Mr. Balfour of these heinous acts and bring his heart into repentance someday," they said in the statement, »
