  1. I think she looks extraordinary on screen, and with such wonderful use of her expressions.
  2. But he's clearly enjoying himself so much. Let him have his fun!
  3. Because it makes thematic sense with the rest of the novel.
  4. The fact it contains Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto and I still enjoyed it immensely is testament to its quality.
  5. I was just thinking about Death Ray as well. I loved it - so sad they slimmed it down and started trying to publish other mags. They should have kept the focus on Death Ray.
  6. I looked into this a while back (learning far more about transmissions and antennas and aerials than I ever thought I would) and it's a common problem. The only solution seems to be a manual tune which I've been a bit too lazy to do.
  7. From series 7? Given the absence of any jokes it might have been nice.
  8. I've not braved series 7 since it was first broadcast so was it ever explained how, at the end of series 6 the time-drive could move them in time but not space (hence being stuck in deep space in the medieval period) but by series 7 they're cheerfully nipping back to Earth whenever?
  9. I've only just caught up with this and raced through it in a couple of days. I loved it - Warren's dialogue fits perfectly with the late-80s early-90s look of it all - someone else mentioned Ninja Scroll upthread. I think I've only ever played the first Castlevania and a bit of the SNES one so I'm not that invested in the franchise but I'm looking forward to the next season. And yes, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought of Duckula!
  10. I've only read 'Backwards' I think, but I was surprise at how brutal the books could be - stuff like Rimmer being melted into a puddle but still being able to feel it etc. It really added a bit of visceral horror to the bleak humour.
  11. I recall reading an article that said that it was set there. Just so I'm not all down on it, Diane Morgan is always great. I'd watch her read the phonebook.
  12. Of course the He-Man film is fucking great.
  13. It struck me as a very English version of this: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MagicalNegro I mean it's baffling enough in this day and age to not make a show with some diversity already baked into it, but to then set it in an incredibly racially-mixed area like Acton is just strange. Still, it's not the only show that does this and it won't be the last. Plus I've probably a bit (!) of a chip on my shoulder as a west Londoner - I get fed up of the whole 'leafy west London' 'rich and posh' stereotype as it basically erases the rest of us from the area. 'People Just Do Nothing' did good things for west London - this not so much!
  14. Caught one episode of this last week and couldn't stand it - it felt like Grange Hill for middle class white adults. And I couldn't believe they pulled out the magical black lady trope - she has loads of kids! And she works! And she drinks like a maniac and kisses who she likes but she's fine the next day! And she has valuable pearls of wisdom for the put-upon white lady! I don't normally cringe at things but this took the biscuit. Must set be in the whitest bit of Acton and all.
