    Dork alert:

    My first thought was that this was a reference to George Broussard… who, you may remember, had an ad campaign running up to the release of Daikatana consisting of the phrase “George Broussard is about to make you his bitch”.

    And since Duke 4Ever’s company “3D Realms” closed recently (as in last week recently), I thought that this was kind of a shout out to that.

    Anyhow, yeah, dork alert over.Report

    They’re doing an American remake of Death at a Funeral? Really?

    But yeah, great news that the pilot is going forward. “Gripped with excitement and trepidation” is about right… it would be all trepidation if the networks or a lesser cable channel were doing the adaptation, but with HBO you gotta believe there’s a fighting chance that they’ll create something truly great.Report

    Even a movie would scare me to death – how can you fit that much into a movie? (I’m looking at youLOTR!) But with HBO – yes – there is a fighting chance….Report
