Re: Would New Who Have Been Better as a Total Reboot?

I voted for option three, but option three should not have a YES part to it IMO. It should just be that it should never have come back. There have been some decent episodes but all in all it's just so childish and forgettable. The only episodes I've watched more than once or twice are Blink! and Mum...

Re: If and When Did DOCTOR WHO "End" For You?

Two different shows, two different end points for me. I voted for when COlin Baker left, but really it was when we had the hiatus. That's when I lost interest. With NuWho it's when they cast a woman in the lead role, although in reality I had stopped watching during Capaldi's second series. The mome...

Re: Mission to the Unknown

Loved that, made with all respect to the original, unlike the animations.. I'd happily watch some more of these, but I'll never watch any more animations.

Special Branch

There was some discussion of the series in another thread (The Sandbaggers?) so for those who were curious about it, some news. Talking Pictures TV will be showing the series, from episode one, from August 26th It is well worth checking out and sticking with, even though it can be slightly hard goin...

Re: Blakes 7 (Big Finish)

Honestly, with Darrow gone they are better knocking it on the head. They have plenty of other ongoing franchises. They could also consider a B7 audio reboot but that doesn't sound great. Gotta be better than limping on sans Avon1 Agreed, Gareth Thomas and Paul Darrow made Blakes 7 what it was and n...

That's poor, but If that kind of Mary Mungo and Midge animation floats anyone's boat fair enough.

Re: Rubbish Books

I agree with you about Ulysses, it's a dreadful load of old sh*te. Anything by Terry Pratchett is well beyond my tolerance level. Any "serious" sci-fi by the likes of Asimov or Heinlein. I also think Shaun Hutson is a bloody awful writer. I read a few of his books a long time ago and all I can reall...

Re: What's The Last TV Show You Watched?

I have three series on the go at the moment, Shoestring, Van Der Valk and Hinterland, but the last one I watched an episode of was Shoestring. An odd tale about a man pretending to still be a stamp trader, in order to launder money for a villain, who died of a heart attack in the street. Doing this ...

Re: Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd were one of those bands that I really tried to get into. People older than me always seemed to be enthusing about them but I just couldn't seem to *get* them. I remember playing 'Atom Heart Mother' and 'Animals' at work but they went over my head. I own 'Dark Side Of The Moon' and 'Wish ...

Re: Deadwood (2004)

They've waited too long. That's my worry with this, as a huge fan of the series. I'll probably be buying the new Blu-ray set, if there is one, as the current UK set has issues with sync and scant extras. I don't get Sky Atlantic, so I'll have to buy it to see it. The bast*rds had better put it out o...

Re: The Orville...

When ORVILLE was first mooted, I was really cynical about the sound of it. It just seemed to me that they were going to try and be GALAXY QUEST all over again. Then it started and the joke quotient seemed indeed high; a daft version of TNG, with thinly disguised versions of iconic characters: Bortu...

Re: The John Wayne Thread

If I had to give you three to watch, I would pick Rio Bravo, The Searchers and The Shootist. I never understood how he won the Oscar for True Grit, when he was so good in The Searchers but failed to win, or even be nominated, for that film. I would say his most Oscar worthy role however was The Shoo...

I could never afford to buy this on DVD but luckily the Daily Mail gave away the complete set and you can often find these sitting around in charity shop freebie bins.

The John Wayne Thread

As the films of this legendary actor cover all three topics in the title, have at it!

For me his best ever film was Rio Bravo. I adore Rio Bravo, I just wish someone would put out a decent Blu-ray of the film!

Not his best performance by any means, but his most entertaining film by a long way IMO.
