  1. The Waybuloo facts were unrelated. I don't get why you'd create CGI characters to teach kids yoga whose heads are seven times the size of their tiny bodies, however. I think the Tittifers are the true power in the Night Garden. And the Harboos are their enforcers.
  2. I can't understand a damn word those Waybuloos say. They wouldn't last five minutes in a real forest.

    Dead Space 2

    I'm well behind you lot but have just got to chapter 8. It took until the start of chapter 7 to really warm up for me - I think I'm too much of a fan of the first one. It seemed like there was not enough story and too much pew pew, but things really seemed to balance out once I got to the solar array. Anyway, I'm loving it now. I'm playing on Normal and it seems that if you make sure you keep upgrading your rig then the difficulty level is pretty low. Or maybe I'm just doing it like a boss* *though as I'm too scared to try it on Zealot, probably not.

    Dead Space 2

    Isaac's been desensitised by the relentless horror. It's the First World War and Europe all over again. Great game though. Like the first, the sound design is amazing. Just started chapter six and loving it so far (though can't get used to Isaac speaking. I keep thinking it's someone else talking to me.
  5. Is she the new presenter doing some of the links? You can almost sense the other four thinking "Oh crap! Now one of us is expendable..." Alex must be scared.
  6. Ahem, I may have watched the CBeebies pantomime. Which had absolutely nothing to do with Katy 'I Can Cook' in her gold leggings.
  7. It blew my mind to find that Justin also does the voices of Jake and Doodles in the Tweenies. If he got run over the channel have to shut down for a month while they rejigged everything. A friend went to Camp Bestival with his five year old last year and apparently there was nearly a riot when Mr. Tumble came on. The crowd was almsot as big as for the headline bands. Also, when you're emotionally exhausted after a day looking after a hyper 11-month-old, the pan pipes in Waybuloo can almost bring a tear to your eye. I can't reconcile myself the In the Night Garden though, even though my daughter loves it. As a reasoned adult you're always trying to find the key that will make sense of it all, like would with Mulholland Drive or Twin Peaks, but the thing is...there is no key. I was really hoping that in the last episode they made that Iggle Piggle would wake up and it would turn out he was an accountant in a coma, but it was just some guff about the ball bouncing around. AGAIN.
  8. I'd definitely like it to go to series, even though I wasn't massively impressed with the pilot. I think with more episodes they'd have time to nail it, and they had some great nods to the character. I guess as Dirk as well as charging exhorbitant fees to old ladies with lost cats, he seems like less of a dishonest chancer and more of a dishonest chancer who's redeemed by his own brilliance. I really wanted them to include his method of navigating on the roads That's the one thing people who've read the book always seem to remember first.
  9. I thought they were going to do a riff on the sofa problem with Dirk's new refrigerator being delivered, but maybe it was cut. I thought it was a bit meh. Mangan nailed it, but the story needed 100% more ghosts and horses.
  10. It's been a while. But if I've imagined those bits then from now on I'm only watching films that I make up in my head, as they're clearly loads better than the real thing.
  11. I love the bit in the car park below the shopping centre, when Arnie wants to unobtrusively hide in her car while she trails the bad guys. So he doesn't get in and duck down out of view. He rips out the passenger seat with his bare hands and sits in the space where it used to be. And she's fine with that. I also love the bit later on when he's been arrested for ripping off the gun store tooling up for the big finale. He's being driven off in a police van and, despite never having used one before, she rescues him by firing a rocket propelled grenade THROUGH the van Arnie's sitting in and into the front cabin. It's like it's primed only to explode when it touches cops.
  12. This is totally from memory but didn't the Tolkein family have a dust up with New Line about their share of the money from the first three films? I may be completely wrong, but it would explain why they don't want to sell the rights to any more books.

    Merlin

    Really? Oh, good. I had thought that, but then they couldn't find the body afterwards.

    Merlin

    Yeah, that was great. Particularly liked it that the last scene was Arthur and Merlin, who are really the heart of the show. I did shout FOR FUCK'S SAKE at the screen when Morgause got knocked out at the end, thereby missing Merlin doing magic.

    Merlin

    There's an episdoe of series 2 of the Tudors where Henry VIII totally shags her. True story.

    Merlin

    Next season has been cut by three episodes, so hopefully that's three episodes less filler and more condensed awesome (in which things actually happen). I'm still a bit stunned that the plot's actually moved on. And about time they killed Sendred (I'm not even going to look up the spelling) as he was easily the worst actor in the show. The finale's called The Coming of Arthur so I'm guessing he'll get Excalibur back and start kicking ass and taking names. The only other interpretation is that it'll descend into soft porn and I don't think I'm ready for that kind of twist.

    Merlin

    Her and Merlin just need to have a proper magic duel-off. And not behind a closed door in the future like Peter and Sylar in Heroes.

    Merlin

    This show is a proper guilty pleasure for me, but they really need to stop hitting reset at the end of EVERY episode. Here’s my Merlin drinking game: “We can’t tell Uther” – one shot Morgana evil smile that nobody else sees – one shot Arthur alludes to Merlin being useless – one shot Gaius says “We can’t tell Uther” – two shots Morgana sneaks off at night time – one shot Somebody in Camelot is bewitched by an outside force – one shot Gaius says “I’ve told you, we can’t tell Uther” – three shots Someone gets knocked out at the end so misses Merlin doing magic – head shot
  19. This has grown on me hugely. The Landmark Forum stuff was very well observed too.
  20. I was an extra in that '...and I've finished my milk' scene and it was very, very hard not to crack up.
  21. You should have just bought an S&M outfit, it would have been loads cheaper.
  22. Or 'The Butler'. That would be a shite one to pull out of the naming hat on Gallifrey.
  23. Watched it again last night and I love how they've started using the eighties sound effects for the TARDIS controls and materialisation. There was a proper Five Doctors noise when they first landed on the planet. It made me happy.
  24. I think they filmed the Dalek one and the Space Whale one in the second block, after the two parter that's coming up. Perhaps he warmed up in between filming eps 3 and 2. Although like the poster on the last page I think the Tennantyness was down to the writing rather than Matt Smith. They didn't use him very well - once he was on board the spaceship he didn't have much to do other than stand there with a biscuit. I'm hoping they're saving the Daleks for next year rather than bringing them back for the finale. I read that Moffat didn't want the Daleks this year at all, but the BBC wanted them in towards the start to give the new Doctor a boost. This may all be arse though, I did read it on the internet.
