Welcome to Adapt This, where I write about the various comics and books I really, really want to see adapted, either in movie or television format. First up: Sandman Mystery Theatre by Matt Wagner and Guy Davis.
Not just the Mondasian ones, but Cybus, Nightmare in Silver, and (while I haven’t seen any photos yet) supposedly Invasion and Revenge as well.
Welcome! Tonight we have ETHICAL DILEMAS. It’s important stuff about the gray aspect of doing what’s wrong for the right reasons and stuff. And I’m sure this show will handle it with aplomb. See you on the other side!
Alamo Drafthouse is showing the Sci-Fi classic as part of their year long celebration of Stanley Kubrick. With your ticket you also get a pretty cool T-shirt made by Mondo. Each shirt will be different too, so you will have a one of a kind collectable. Here is the link if you want to know more.

Friday’s episode of Grimm is wish fulfilment for anyone who wishes people could be stopped from polluting and otherwise damaging the environment. Plus, more on the freaky mirror incident, and Adalind’s drawing of the tunnel symbols. Spoilers after the break.

Last night I listened to Project: Destiny, a 2010 Seventh Doctor Doctor Who audio play that functions as a sequel to the 2001 and 2003 Sixth Doctor stories Project: Twilight and Project: Lazarus (the latter also featuring Seven) about vampires.
