It was the summer holidays and I was about 10 years old (so we are talking rather a long time ago), together with my Mum, and my sisters we were in the toy section of our local department store, armed with summer holiday pocket money, saved diligently for months (or at least weeks!) before, we were there to shop and by that I mean toys. The youngest of us was still too young to be choosing for herself, so Mum was off to the baby toys to choose something appropriate, which left me and my then about 8 year old sister to race off excitedly. She hurtled off to the dolls section and was instantly beguiled by My Little Pony and the Care Bears. I nearly followed her, I had my eye on a Barbie, having been bought Cindy, who was to be honest, rather dull – Barbie seemed like a glamorous foreigner who promised untold good play times, and I was hoping my pennies were going to also stretch to a Barbie Camper Van.
Money doesn’t the hit make! We love a web series here at Razberry Towers, regularly trawling the world wide interweb in search of some original fresh entertainment, and Geek & Sundry, the home of the excellence in web comedy that is The Guild (arguably the funniest web series ever made – unless you know of something funnier….), and Space Janitors, has the best credentials and something that most don’t – money!
So when we saw that there was a new offering from Geek & Sundry, co-written by Felicia Day, who is our absolutely favourite internet celeb (she kinda oozes – “well bugger it, I will just do it myself then”) we were rather pleased and almost excited to have a watch.
I am a bit of a late comer to The Walking Dead, having just finished watching season 4, I am already having withdrawal symptoms as I wait for season 5 which is due to premier in October 2014
The show has become a phenomenal worldwide success, partly due to the cast of Rick Grimes and co but also due to the writers who have a way of throwing you a surprise or two, just as I was getting to like the new improved badass Andrea wham she’s gone and what about Hershel the old wise man of the group it was like killing Yoda from Star Wars, but that’s what makes it so great and unpredictable none of the characters are truly ever safe which makes for addictive viewing.

What can you get for 77p/99c? Not a great deal is probably a fair answer - however that is the price tag applied to absolutely thousands of Ebooks, so when I was asked to read one - The Scarlet Haze Diaries, by Keira Hart - and not only review it, but comment on if it was a good use of 77p/99c, I was happy to have a read!
