Mine arrived this morning ok...
(Sorry to hear yours didn't, I still look forward to getting it even when it's not on form, and at the moment it mostly is)

Mmmm, ended up getting this from Smiths, as my sub copy was a no show. Today...no prog again. Anyone else having a similar issue?

Read enough A Song of Ice and Fire books ....


I seem to recall talk of a prize draw for anyone who could stay awake past the first book.  I've hung on to the copy I tried for the next time I get a bout of insomnia ...

What have you twisted PARAGON deviants done to my poor Spencer?

Oh wait, I wrote that story...

Top pulpy colouring from Filippo on that gruesomely great Candlish cover!

The Bible, Genesis: a mad opening and then it just drags on and on.  Parable after parable, letter after letter - and that whole New Testament is just flogging a crucified savior.


Revelations had it's moments - it's just there's a few books in betwee that aren't much cop!

Nothing is wasted

I made the same connection- Goodnight Kiss is one of my all-time favourites. I even asked Mr Williams about it and got this response from Chris Weston:

I’m wondering how many revivals do work. Would Outnumbered count? Although that’s only had one new episode since they finished the fifth series. (Also, rarely, that to my mind is a show that was consistently solid throughout.)


Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?  Though I'm not sure if it counts as a revival - how long was the gap between that and The Likely Lads.

It’s still the best TV sci fi comedy by miles (let’s forget Hyperdrive ever happened).


p.s. hey, I liked Hyperdrive!

I was tempted to say Red Dwarf but couldn’t decide where the cut off point should be. If I was being really harsh I’d say after series 2. I really like those early low budget pre Kryten episodes (Thanks for the Memory is probably my favourite episode). Series 3-5 are still really good throughout, then it hit a bit of a downward slide. I’ve really enjoyed the later series on Dave though. It’s still the best TV sci fi comedy by miles (let’s forget Hyperdrive ever happened).


I remember when the titles to series three aired that it wasn't as good as the first two series - still watcheable, but everything that has come after is just not as good.  Having said that, the last series I watched was better than the ones that had immediatley preceded it.  I'd still watch every episode in a marathon (including Can't Smeg Won't Smeg).

Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...

I know what the film's about from a couple of newspaper reviews, and I've read that post a dozen times now and I can't see any spoilers. Certainly hasn't told me anything, but my arithmetic must be bad.

I can only guess it's already been moderated, as I couldn't detect any spoilers either.
