Killer Lampreys to Suck Shannen Doherty and Christopher Lloyd to Death this Memorial Day

It probably wouldn't surprise you to hear The Asylum has a new nature gone amok flick titled Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys starring Shannen Doherty and Christopher Lloyd premiering on TV this Memorial Day weekend.

What might surprise you is where you can see it. Not Syfy! These lampreys are prowling Animal Planet.

If Wil Wheaton and so many others got annoyed about the Discovery Channel airing a fake Megalodon documentary during Shark Week last year you have to wonder if they'll react negatively to Animal Planet suddenly getting in on the schlocky b-movie game with the producers of Sharknado. Maybe not, considering this tale of lethal lampreys on the attack is debuting as part of Animal Planet's third annual "Monster Week" (which really is a monster week given it lasts 9 days). According to the New York Post, this is the same offbeat week Animal Planet will

Episode Recap: Castle - 1.02: "Nanny McDead"

That's another comment about wanting to shoot him, last episode she said she has a gun. Must be trigger happy. She has a case and he's got paperwork. Now did she seriously think she could elude him, it's like Castle's got eyes and ears everywhere. A nanny is found in the dryer and Beckett notices the bleach bottle and blood on the floor. He's already there, as Castle says she thought she'd given him the slip. Never. And refers to the Db as 'Nanny Mcdead'. Beckett is his inspiration and he doesn't know when inspiration will strike (usually at the end of the episode when he actually gets to write.) Well inspiration is a slow process and
