Usher ripped off OMG from The Simpsons?


Alien: Nostromo Self-Destruct Sequence (1979)


Alien was the reason why I developed an interest in sci-fi as a child. Watching the film for the first time when I was about ten, I thought this particular scene was probably the coolest thing I had ever seen.

Dragon's Lair (NES): Playthrough



I used to have this game as a child; however, it was so unreasonably difficult that I never bothered to try advancing past the second level (The Mines; I'm not even counting the first part as an actual level). After all these years, this is actually the first time that I see the game in its entirety. Nevertheless, it must be one of the worst NES games in history.

Hole in the Wall: Top 20 Walls



Hole in the Wall, the U.K. version of the more famous Japanese game show Brain Wall (also known as Human Tetris) was broadcast by BBC One between 2008 and 2009. This poorly executed mockery of a game show is probably among the worst TV programmes ever made.

To be frank, considering even the current selection of its programmes, BBC One seems to be both the ultimate reason to pay and not to pay one's U.K. TV licence – for example, on Saturday evenings, they broadcast Tumble (appalling celebrity gymnastics show) and Doctor Who back to back, which never ceases to amaze me.
