Top 7 Shaun of the Dead Parallels

.LIST.

Part of the beauty of Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead is that the first half of the film (everday life) paralells perfectly the second half of the film (zombie attacks), further beautified by the fact that many of the parallels are extremely subtle. Sure, there are the obvious ones, like the running theme that Shaun's fallback is always his favorite pub The Winchester, whether choosing it as a romantic date spot or his fort during the zombie apocalypse, as well as the ultimate gag, that Shaun's deadbeat friend is equally useful dead as alive, but every time you watch the film, you will pick up on new things.

The Infinite Monkey Cage Live in New York City

Hosted by Robin Ince and Professor Brian Cox, with panelists Bill Nye, Janna Levin, Tim Daly, and Lisa Lapanelli, with Neil deGrasse Tyson patched in via Skype, BBC Radio 4's popular science/comedy radio show The Infinite Monkey Cage performs live in front of an American audience for the first time. The live show also included a lecture from Professor Cox, a standup routine from Robin Ince, and a video of Richard Feynman playing bongos and singing about orange juice.

Brian Cox says this episode will broadcast in June, “which means all this talk about snow will confuse the audience.”

“That will confuse them, ” said Robin Ince, “not the particle physics.”

The name's Pond. Jaime Pond.


Anglonerd magazine is a site for Americans who love nerdy British television and British (and Irish) comedy. You'll find where to get those hard to track down TV shows, British comedians touring the States, American release dates of British films, British TV on American networks, and much more. Anglonerd is more reviews, recommendations, cartoons, and exclusive interviews than it is about entertainment news, but do check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for up-to-the-minute (all right, week) news because we like to repost/retweet others' news stories. And by "we," I mean me.

Hi, I'm Jaime Pond, New York anglophile and nerd. Have a question? Email me at anglonerd@gmail.com.

PRESS


Another blog by an American (honestly, do us Brits write any of our own TV blogs?), but this time without the infectious, and adorable, enthusiasm. Instead, Anglonerd offers a variety of insights into the bits of British TV that most Americans won’t have heard of, with a bit of a focus on comedy. If you want your British TV knowledge to go further than Doctor Who and Downton Abbey, then Anglonerd is for you, with great write ups of comedians’ and actors’ careers, illustrations of panel comedy shows, and the odd reviews and features.
