Reed Diamond – Christmas Special the Second

Once again Culturally Fixated is joined by our Special Correspondent in LA to celebrate Christmas!!

Welcome back to the fabulous, the funny, the festive


daniel whitehall gifWhat a chat!! We cover all sorts of everything – we dove straight in and began discussing Marvel, comics, Agents of SHIELD and Reed’s reunion with Jed Whedon, Mo Tancharoen and Dichen Lachman. From there – it was a hectic head first trip down the rabbit hole as we covered Rossum, Hydra, the spectrum of TV villains and the parallels of the fictional and real world.

Then onto Reed’s insanely busy 2014 – from Wayward Pines to the final season of Franklin and Bash, to working with Malcolm McDowell and his first foray in comedy (on TV anyway), then onto State of Affairs and back again.


as Daniel Whitehall


All the while joined by Monkey (an actual magical monkey) and Donald (the inebriated and obscenely snobby elf). Daniel Whitehall – yup, heartless evil Nazi Hydra leader – even serenaded us with a chilling rendition of Jingle Bells.

Oh and I taught Reed how *not* to say Nollaig Shona (Merry Christmas in Irish).

We’ve very good. Practically not offensive at all.
Agents of SHIELD. We ruin the living daylights out of the first half of the second season.
And the end part of the first.
Oh, we also assume that everyone is up to speed on Dollhouse and Much Ado About Nothing. Because why wouldn’t you be?

Christmas Moovies – While You Were Sleeping

while you were sleeping

My Christmas movie marathon has begun.

While I do adore the festive season; I’m an even more complete sucker for the feel good films that it spawns.

Have spent my Sunday evening curled up in front of a fire, sipping hot chocolate with tiny pink and white marshmallows and welling up at the loveliness that is one of the finest rom-coms ever.

It’s so refreshing seeing a film with romantic leads that are over 25; have faces that move; funny and witty dialogue; secondary characters that consist of more than just quirks and a decent storyline…

Ok the storyline is daft…but beautifully so!

For any of you that might have missed it, check out the trailer below.

This is undoubtedly a Christmas film primarily because it’s set at Christmas time but I could watch it any time of the year…over and over again which is why I’ve made one of those mental rules that only allows me to watch it…well…about now!

So…are ye’s all of you judging me? Or do you have any build-up-to-the-holidays films that you’re watching? As always, comments muchly appreciated!

Christmas Shoe – song

Found a Christmas channel (IT’S FAR TOO EARLY!!) this morning while faffing about which was airing The Christmas Shoes (poor Rob Lowe) – a particularly cheap and soulless Christmas offering.

But the song that ‘inspired’ it (which was in it’s turn based on a chain email letter called The Golden Slippers in the 90’s) is truly RISIBLE!! Perhaps the worst Christmas song of all time.

Listen here…IF YOU DARE!!!
