Same high standard throughout and the perfect final episode. Great stuff!

Thanks, JBC. Seems to be easing off a bit now, thank Grud!

Thanks, Paddy. Luckily, the Sharkshed has no steps - but it also has no toilet so I've been hobbling over to the bog block and back with a walking stick like a 90 year old incontinent. Ah Dignity, why hast thou forsaken me?

Went to the sawbones with it a couple of months ago. He gave me some exercises to do which eased the condition somewhat but this morning it just suddenly felt like I'd been kicked by a donkey. Maybe I twisted it in my sleep or something. Anyway, a good excuse for kicking back with a prog or two :-)

Just started season three of For all Mankind. This is one of my favourite shows of modern times (stemming from the premise "what if the U.S.S.R. got to the Moon first?"). If you haven't seen it, have a go!

The inclusion of Ray Harryhausen's troglodyte in a couple of backgrounds made me smile - but it's not a film for smiles apart from that little homage. If Hell exists, then this film nails it. Definitely one I'll be watching again.

I watched Mad God following your recommendation and - Hell fire - that is one memorable film. I've never seen anything quite like it.

I always suspected The Sandman was pretentious but was never well read enough to know for sure. This never stopped me from enjoying it, however, and even inspired me to write tons of pretentious bobbins of my own* without the least bit of embarrassment. I mean, what's the point of being an writist if one can't pretend to be better than one is?

Anyhoo, I enjoyed the comics and I enjoyed this series.




*See my entire back catalogue.

Black Bird


Thanks for putting me on to this. A really good little show - and quite moving to see Ray Liotta one last time.

...Jenna Coleman...


Yes. I have no problem with a female in the role, but Coleman just isn't seedy enough. I initially found Lucifer to be a bit off as well, but the actor did start to grow on me. A bit.

Apart from those two little niggles, a cracking stab at the source material.

The Sandman. Some interesting - and often inspired - casting choices plus interesting adaptions are making this very enjoyable for me. The only downside is that I've binged too much in one day so only have two episodes left to watch tomorrow (or none, if I stay up too late - which means I'll miss out on some of my own dream time...).
