This made me laugh – Lookwell an early 1990s US sitcom pilot is on YouTube. Vaguely Police Squadish. Found on Kung Fu Monkey Blog

West Winging Pluto

Friday, August 25th, 2006

As I said when blogging about Plutons a short while ago the whole Pluto thing really has all the elements of a good West Wing plot. The hijaking of the process to demote Pluto out of the planetary big league after the intelligent compromise that was the Plutons plan was killed off is by itself […]

CSI a Cheap Excuse for a Blog Entry

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

I’m surprised Kim hasn’t been emoting some sort of *strange noise* tonight after CSI’s season finale. I’m only talking about it to fill space because I’ve been busy polishing my posts for the next three months of Wednesdays. Other than that I’ve added a couple of pages to my site: impworks. I think I need […]

So I was wrong about Captain Jack…

Sunday, July 9th, 2006

I was wrong about Dr Who bringing Captain Jack back despite the character being confirmed for the Torchwood spin off show later this year. Oh well. I’ll have to watch that now to see how they bring him back from being trapped in the future. Still we got an inconclusive fight between Daleks and Cybermen […]

Captain Jack Week?

Saturday, July 8th, 2006

Went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest yesterday. A very good second part to the series with a couple of really outstanding action sequences. Good character development. Interesting twists and turns to the plot see the characters and their allegiances mixed up from the first film to create some interesting new combinations. […]

One Hundred and Fifty First Post

Saturday, June 10th, 2006

By my count this is 151 posts. I still haven’t released my new website but I’ve only 1 page left to go before I can release it into the wild so maybe tomorrow, if I don’t melt overnight, I let it loose. Other than the heat a good day. Chores done. Shopping done. Tomorrow should […]

No Meaningful Thought Here Move Along Please

Sorry absolute state of mentalwipedoutblankblandness syndrome has overtaken my brain. Not even enough grey matter to comment on tonight’s Doctor Who. I’m going to bed.

Are You Sitting Comfortably Then I'll Begin

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

The teaser at the end of tonight’s Doctor Who for next week’s episode, The Idiot’s Lantern, included Maureen Lipman uttering the immortal line from Listen with Mother of "Are you sitting comfortably then I’ll begin". The Doctor used a bit of it at the start of the episode School Reunion. Are they just teasing the […]

Building a Better Krillitane

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

The new Dr Who episode "School Reunion" that was really good. Liked having a villain who got to be nasty and menacing for a little while and who could act. I think there was either a huge story hole or (more likely) a hook for a later story buried in this one too. The Krillitane […]

Random Thoughts

Tuesday, February 14th, 2006

Can it be a coincidence that “Quantum Leap” and “Life on Mars” both have lead characters called Sam? That both of them appear to be able to travel in time but only in their own lifetimes? Do they both have something they need to put right so they can get home? Maybe it’s a coincidence. […]
