Last week I said that if no one else wrote a review, I would — and as it turns out, there’s still just a bunch of previews but nothing substantive. Yes, it has 1080p HD video recording capabilities, yes it has a shiny-almost-Canon-7D-18-megapixel sensor… but no one’s commented on what it feels like. Specs are only a tiny portion of the story — so here’s a hands-on review of the new Canon 550D. Note: Don’t expect a highly-technical review. No…

As I alluded to elsewhere, I’m now the owner of a very-hard-to-get-your-hands-on Canon 550D (Digital Rebel T2i). I think there’s only about 20 in the UK at the moment, so I should probably write a full review — but I just don’t have time. Perhaps after the weekend, if there are still no reviews up on the Internet. In the mean time, here’s a test of the video/film functionality. This is recorded at 1080p ‘full HD’, but I messed it…

I think it’s kinda little funny that I didn’t actually get the ‘prejudice’ part of the book’s title until I finished it. Then I put it down, lay back, and actually thought about it: ‘Ohhh! Darcy was prejudiced!’ Or maybe it’s meant to be more over-arcing than that — an observation of society at the time — who knows. You’ll have to bear with me, because I never really learnt how to dissect books. School was a bit backward like…

OK OK! I admit, the double-barrel Dollhouse episodes in the past three weeks have totally thrown me off-guard. They’ve been pretty damn awesome (with a few iffy bits), and I’ve been trying to take screenshots, but I just haven’t had time to collate them all into a blog post. If you haven’t been watching Dollhouse — due to mixed reviews, or lack of time, or whatever — it’s probably worth watching for what promises to be a pretty spectacular finale…

Note: Dollhouse day not Dushku Day because, well… there was hardly any Dushku this week. Instead… we were treated to an episode full of Sierra — Dichen Lachman — and Victor (the always-delightful Enver Gjokaj). And… it was OK! Surprisingly OK. Deep and meaningful. It was certainly let down a little by Dichen’s acting a little… but she did better than usual! Enver was great as usual. Keith Carradine (who is absolutely awesome in Dexter)¬†also made a surprise appearance —…

Heroes finally comes of age. Thank you, Lord.
