If JK Rowling was responsible for reviving children's interest in books, if Wachowski brothers were responsible for getting people back to the big screen, then Binu has to be responsible for getting me interested in TV once again.

His post on Ankhein is something you gotta read! From his post:
Sad that you can't get to watch Plan 9 From Outer Space? Relax, there's something on DD National just for you. The "so bad it's good" serial is called Ankhein and it airs on DD National at 10:00 pm every Thursday. It's about a colonel and his team of five commandos called Ankhein who protect the nation from the evil-doers Carlos and Kangaroo (who are always getting drunk next to a pool and laughing out loud).

Describing a full episode with all its flaws will require a dedicated website. I'm sure the serial will attain cult status soon and one will spring up. Here are some interesting sequences from the last two episodes.

Well, well, well... like Aankhein's connections to Plan 9 from Outer Space - here is the scoop!!!!

"Shiv Sagar is gold medalist from reputed hotel school Les Roches in Switzerland. He has also completed his MBA from the Indian School of Business (ISB) in Hyderabad. ISB is the first International Business School in India partnering with Kellogg, Wharton and London Business School.

Shiv has experience in managing and marketing of hotels blah, blah, blah... involved in the production/direction of television shows such as Gurukul on Star Plus Channel. He has participated in IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) shows in Atlanta and Singapore."

Of course no points for guessing the Shiv Sagar is the close relative of Amrit Sagar the director of the now legendary Aankhein. What a super job idea for all our "consultants of the class of 05" - we actually could influence our way into having a creative say in Aankhein! And make it really live up to the "its so crappy, you just have to watch it" tag!
