I've been watching the 4th season of Eureka - just as good as the first three so far. :D

Harry Potter and the Second Half of the Story We've Already Charged You Full Price For.

As always, not having read the books, I was left guessing what was going on a lot of the time.

Still, beats the "review" I read on Twitter : "HP7b - In which it is revealed the whole magical story was a dream as Harry starves to death in his cupboard." ;-)
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

The Metro of the 14th July 14 was forecasting record income.
In todays Metro the statement that
Higher admission proces meant the last of the eight films became the first in the franchise to hit that level.
seems to agree with Pat.

I've tried Warehouse 13, thought I'd like it but just couldn't get into it.

Derek felt the same way. His exact words as we walked out were, "I feel like I was robbed."

I've generally felt that "Eureka" is "X-Files Lite" and "Warehouse 13" is "Eureka Lite". I watch it when it's on but I don't mind missing it, whereas I buy "Eureka" DVDs!

I agree! X-Files was great - but there was barely a laugh in the whole nine seasons... ;-)

I first encountered Eureka on holiday in the US four or five years ago - they were advertising season 2 and at the airport a shop had the season 1 DVDs - what could I do?

Apparently there's this stuff called 'willpower'
I put it in the same category as Yeti hair and Loch Ness Monster scales - largely mythical, only ever seen by other people

Saw part 2 of Sherlock last night online

And ... well, what a crock!
There is no way the A-Z could be used for that type of code - and it WAS a code, not a frickin' cipher - because it doesn't have numbered pages with lists of streets like that
They missed a trick though - why not have it from a Chinese restaurant menu?

However, apart from that, still thought the writing was excellent again

I think episode 2 is the weakest of the three so far.

I rewatched episode 3 this morning (lots of places in Cardiff in there) - some clever stuff in there. :D
Proceed, varlet, and let the day be rendered perfect for my benefit!
