    Yeah but not enough cylons .

    Just finished the first series of this and can second Jezzer's recommendation but I still slightly prefer Firefly.

    Season two is even better! Plenty more Cylons!

    Watched this last night:





    Great fun - hilarious, creepy, rumpy pumpy and castration. You can't go wrong with a mix like that!

    I watched it with a friend and his Mrs the day before they were set off on a tour of remote Scottish locations in their (notoriously unreliable) Triumph Spitfire. :shocked::lmao:

    Lord of War is worth a watch. The critics (Johnathon Ross in particular) didn't like it. But I think they didn't "get it". Give it a go, I thought it was one of thebest films I have seen in a long time.

    Is it full of explosions and car chases?

    If so my Mrs won't be too keen unless it's either as good as "Leon" or "The Bourne Identity"...

    I've been trying out Screen Select since January on a three-month offer and so far have enjoyed both Kill Bill's, Man On Fire and Collateral, amongst others suitable to watch with our youngest daughter.

    Man On Fire was very good but started slowly then got really violent. Beautifully shot too. Collateral with Tom Cruise with grey hair, beard and suit is a very good Michael Mann flick which kept my attention all the way through. I can recommend it because there's no sickly American sentimentality that ruins most major releases.

    I also rented an old favourite - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - but they sent the Bonus Disc separately, after I returned the actual film, so we didn't watch it, just sent it back. Strange thing to send out on its own.

    Muych more subtle than that. The cover does the film no justice.

    I recommend the X-Files boxsets, which I currently have for sale Seasons 1-4 are the best, 5 is ok after that it went down hill and the conspiracy disappeared up its own backside.
    You go for a walk in the park one day and wheelchair ninjas, Nazis, and pots and pans robots show up to kill you. And dinosaurs show up to eat the remains. You\'ve seen the news...?

    I have all 9 series on DVD and couldn't agree more with you regarding when it Jumped the Shark.

    Very sad as it really was great TV for a while. Still never watched all of series 8 and seen none of series 9 yet.

    They should have chopped X-Files after the Smoking Man died, IMO. It all got a bit silly and largely incomprehensible after that.

    Dudes I have just seen Kill Bill Vol 2 for the first time, a 6/10 film, quite watchable if far fetched, but it has one of the most pristine video transfers I have ever seen for a film, quite stunning in fact. Well worth checking out if you want to see what your DVD or Dispplay can do when fed a stunning picture, I am running PAL PS BNC-RCA to a 36" CRT TV. Best visuals I have seen on my rig.

    Just been and got Deadwood series 2.

    After a very slow start I really enjoyed the first series and was gutted when it finished.

    Something funny/enjoyable hearing Lovejoy saying some wonderfully offensive language.

    In my Beeb days I worked on Lovejoy... And hearing Mr Mcshane utter foul language was certainly not unknown. And he insisted on smoking a cigar in the sound dubbing theatre.

    "Team America - World Police" tomorrow, with "Kill Bill 1" and some Jacques Tati for next week.

    Ah Deadwood - amazing series. I saw the first disc from series one a few days ago. I couldn't have guessed that a "western" series could be this good.

    Also the setting has some meaning for me as I have toured in the Black Hills area. I've been in Deadwood, seen Wild Bill Hicock's grave, drunk in saloons dating back and kept in old style. The scenery is lovely and the Indian heritage is great to get into. Also the Badlands nearby is an amazing off-worldly place to walk in. Anyone interested, PM me for suggestions and advice. A trip in this area naturally combines with reachableplaces like Yellowstone NP, Grand Teton NP, the Rockies in Colorado and Dever is your gateway direct with BA.

    I get the impression that H.B.O. can't make a bad series.

    Yes, LOL, you know I suspect the choice of name was quite deliberate. When you first watch Deadwood it is quite surreal to hear all that swearing in the context of a "western" but when you think of it the actual people involved in these circumstances, theywere among the roughest diamonds around. Swearing wasn't recently invented. The graphic violence is an attention grabber too. But these alone do not make a good drama of course. Deadwood is well written, well acted, well filmed with good props and good music to boot.

    Watched "Team America - World Police" last night...

    Absolutely hilarious, so long as you're not too PC, right wing, left wing, squeamish or easily shocked... It's like "Thunderbirds" should have been!

    Great songs as well.. (Fuck yeah!)

    I really enjoyed Team America - bit of a guilty pleasure, and I reckon they could have gone a bit further as well.

    Still makes me laugh seeing the puppet on the motorbike going past full sized cars on the road.
