Mad Men
1x04 New Amsterdam [2nd watch]
1x05 5G [2nd watch]

6x08 Fashion (extended edition)
So it turns out the extended QI's are available on iPlayer (unlike how it previously seemed), they're just a nightmare to find and thoroughly hidden. Try the link below -- in the programme info it says it's 29 minutes, but if you play it it's the full 45.

Brand New Fast And Furious Poster by Emily Phillips
(from Empire Online)
There's no reason to be excited about the film, but all credit to whoever came up with that tagline: it's the fourth film in the series, the first sequel to star the primary cast from the original, and the tagline is... "New Model. Original Parts." That's very neat, it must be said.
It's still a bloody stupid title though -- how easy is it to confuse Fast and Furious with The Fast and the Furious, especially when you've got the original cast back -- it just looks like a re-release.
Also, enjoy this article for the sniping at the cast for sinking to this level.

Making Watchmen: What Took So Long? by Greg Dean Schmitz
(from Rotten Tomatoes)
A good summary of the windy path Watchmen has taken to get to the big screen. Hopefully, some day, more details will emerge on the versions people like Terry Gillian, Darren Aronofsky and Paul Greengrass were planning -- I'm sure they'd've been very different and very interesting.

Quentin Tarantino on the Inglourious Basterds Trailer
(from Empire Online)
It's another one of Empire's features where someone (in this case, QT himself) talks you through a trailer almost frame-by-frame. And good they are too. Watch the trailer itself here.
