Scary Books

Trailer, Quotes and Stuff

‘Escape Plan’ TV spot

I have a fondness for Canada Dry.
I have a weakness for Orange Chewits.

No wonder ‘Don’t Trust The B---- In Apartment 23’ got axed. Season 2 is awful and unfunny compared to season 1.

‘Don’t Trust The B---- In Apartment 23’ Quotes:
“Judging by the amount of denim you’re wearing, I bet you’ve been through some rough stuff.”

“If there is one thing I have learned from pretending to be sober in AA for three and a half years: it’s always be authentic.”

“That squirrel is staring into my soul.”

‘Charmed’ Quotes:
“She’s gonna wear out the batteries.”

“Oh I’m sorry, were you ranting?”
“Yes I was, but now I’m done.”

“We can be bad later.”

“I’m not going to leave my sisters in Egypt with two demonic perverts.”

‘The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 ¾’ (book) Quotes:
“I hope my mother takes the hint. I have left it on the kitchen table near the ash tray, so she is bound to see it.”

“Sabre usually fetches the paper but he is being kept in as punishment for chewing the sink.”

“Barry Kent said he would do me over unless I gave him twenty-five pence every day.”

“Lucas Creep was wearing jeans! His belly was hanging over his belt.”

Book Review: Exodus Code

Torchwood: Exodus Code by John and Carole Barrowman
Set post ‘Miracle Day’, this is a dire tale of how the Earth is in peril yet again. Jack and the even more annoying Gwen have to stop it. Rhys lurks being useless and there is a mention of Rex looking for the families behind Miracle Day, but I didn’t care. Jack has endless angst, everyone loves Gwen and annoying new characters get way too much attention as they battle a ridiculous big bad. There are good ‘Torchwood’ novels: ‘Border Princes’, ‘Slow Decay’, ‘Something In The Water’, ‘Trace Memory’, ‘Pack Animals’, ‘Bay of the Dead’, ‘Risk Assessment’, ‘Consequences’ and ‘First Born’. This is not one of those novels.

Best Lines:
“Gwen ripped the phone from his band and dropkicked it into the dairy section.”

“I spotted one on the street, doing a pretty good job of standing outside the bookie’s having a smoke.”

“How are you not comatose?”
