Doctor Who - The Adventure Games by Marcus
(from Doctor Who News Page)
Announcement of a series of Doctor Who PC/Mac games, to be made available free from the official site later this year.
These aren't the tacky little Flash-built arcade-style games the site's always had, but Proper, 3D, Download-and-Install games with voice casts and writers and the whole works. They sound like the could be excellent, provided they really are old-school adventure games and not platformers/shoot-em-ups masquerading as 'adventure games'. Best of all (from a very fannish point of view), the screenshot of a Cyberman suggests we may have seen the back of the alternate-universe Cybus Cybermen...
Very, very exciting.

The greatest 9,331 movies of all time by Paul Hiebert
(from Film Salon)

Still Wrapped In Plastic: Twin Peaks Turns 20 by John Powers
(from npr)
Nice little piece on the importance, impact and greatness of Twin Peaks. Don't worry, there're no spoilers.
