There should be a poster of the WILTY segment where David Mitchell alleged to have once killed a rat with his BAFTA.

As much as we complain about articles that are a slideshow only to increase ad views, I'd much rather read one of those than have an ad pop up in the corner of every single image. Terrible.

Yes, I also came in here solely to complain about the ads. They got one click-through from me because I missed the 'x'. Bastahds!

Ad-free images at the designer's (agency's?) website here.

I knew there would be comments about the ads. I closed the first one and then others kept sliding in and then RAGE! Thanks for the link Troika, I wonder if we can replace the link in the FPP?

I'm on the fence about watching Zero Dark Thirty (I don't really like watching violent films) but I think I like that poster best.

Beautiful!

Also, those ads are a totally new kind of hell.

The ads on this site have had an effect on me. The affect is to find and install ANY ad blocker software I can find. Signed - Camel with straw-broken back
