Brunel University in London offers a Master's degree in Cult Film and TV. No, really. "Case studies include Dr Who, The Prisoner, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The League of Gentlemen." It makes me want to take a year off from work RIGHT NOW. Is that so wrong?
Then again, you could offer me a year off work in a reasonably comfy basement with amoebic dysentery and I would give it serious thought. (Don't look at me like that. It's like the old Jack Benny joke--your money or your life? I'm thinking...)
