Tweets Of The Week
Explosions in Lost, Edgar Wright gets the Horne, Neil Gaiman is saying nothing and more from the Twitterverse
The Prisoner remake starts on ITV tomorrow (quick! – arrange to go out!) and the one person who seems to have not noticed that everyone seems to hate it is Matthew (Ashes To Ashes) Graham who Tweeted: “Looking forward to The Prisoner. I have worked with director Nick
Hurran, he’s a genius. It will work.” No, it didn’t, Matt, trust us.
Leonard Nimoy joined the Twittersphere two weeks ago and is slowly getting into it. It’s great when you feel like you’re eavesdropping on the private conversation between two SF giants: “Leonard, following me is a good idea,” Shatner Twittered. “Seeing me is a better idea. I’ll take you out to dinner soon. My best, Bill.” “Hey Bill,” responded Nimoy. “Coming to my house is a good idea. The food is great, the company is wonderful, and it’s all free! LLAP” Can we come?
Neil Gaiman responded this week to questions about what his Doctor Who episode is actually about, referring his followers to a Steven Moffat quote after the Whomeister was asked about Gaiman’s ep: “I CAN TELL YOU NOTHING! It’s very, very good. I can’t tell you anything except that it will be on television and it will be in COLOUR!”
Meanwhile, Caprica mainwoman Jane Espensen forwarded something for still mourning Firefly fans (“Firefly fans will want to see this! RT @haldira Look at my first product I did Product Management on: http://bit.ly/ajYci2 YAY! :D”) and Damon Lindelof asked viewers of 13 April’s episode of Lost not to change channels: “For those of you considering switching over to Glee, we have copious Madonna songs tonight too. And by Madonna songs, I mean explosions.” (Note to UK viewers: that episode Damon was on about is one on Sky One tonight, and it is fekkin’ awesome. Don’t miss it.)
One viewer who certainly wouldn’t be turning over is the Twitterholic Simon Pegg: “Oh Lost you make 7 days seem like an eternity and 43 minutes seem like a second.” We second that.
Finally, Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright decided to acknowledge the 20th anniversary of The Best TV Show Ever Made: “I’d like to publicly salute the 20th anniversary of Twin Peaks,” he Tweeted. “I’d also like salute the character of Audrey Horne, but that’s more private.”
