I saw Captain Scarlet on Saturday and really enjoyed it.

It was actually quite exciting.

Also, Destiny Angel was welcome as added T&A. :-)

I finally managed to see this this morning and I *really* enjoyed it. My only small gripe was the English characters referring to Lieutenant Green as 'Loo-tenant' Green, which just sounded wrong to me.

*Definitely* going to try and see next week's, though. :)

There's nothing geeky about that at all. To me, it sounds as wrong as someone English saying "I'm gonna put the trashcan out on the sidewalk, you goddamn muthafucker" instead of "I'm putting the bin out on the path, you twat".

Apart from anything else, the American pronunciation makes it sound like they rent out toilets. ;)

Surely an American would say "Bathroom-tenant"...?

Saw if for the first time this morning.

It's amazing they get anything done at the skybase, it's a hotbed of sexual tension.

I think the only thing that can kill him is lack of toy sales.

I'd like to see the disclaimer on the box that points out the "indestructable" tag isn't legally binding.
