Hey, this morning I just discovered Sony’s Crackle, a web-only TV station. I just watched a little of Angel of Death with Zoë Bell as a hit-woman with a slight problem in the shape of a big wedge of metal stuck in her skull! You may remember real-life stunt-woman and stunt-double (e.g. for the Bride and Xena) Zoë Bell from her acting role in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof. The TV show is so-so, but not any worse than most paid-for TV. If you like head-crunching, bullet-riddled, hard-boiled action, then you might want to check this out. The show is written by comic-man Ed Brubaker. Another good thing? Absolutely zero bimbo factor. Bell actually looks physically intimidating. Crackle also streams older movies. My pick of the day? King Fu Hustle.

“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
