Lying In The Gutters – 25th March 2013 – Get Well Soon, Brendon

Tom Hiddleston Is The Great Escapo In The Muppets… AgainFolks, Bleeding Cool’s Brendon Connelly is currently in hospital with heart palpitations. Appropriately enough, it is Pinewood Hospital, the synchronicity gives him small pleasure. Ous thoughts and prayers are with Brendon and his family. As a result, our film and TV coverage is likely to be lacking in the next week or so, we hope you forgive us. I’ll do what I can, I’m off to see a bit of Iron Man 3 tomorrow. I’ll try to see it with Brendon’s unwaveringly critical perspective rather than my fanboy blinkers. And if I see a Muppet I will try and kidnap it and take it to Brendon.

So, yes, you’ve been reading rather a lot of Bleeding Cool this week it seems. Record traffic and stuff.
