Resistance is futile!

29 July 2006


Do you remember Eerie Indiana? Do you? With the kids being preserved in tubberware lunchboxes? And the ability to understand the canine plot to take over the world cause of dental-ware? I loved that show. And I’m really hoping that my memory isn’t lying to me[1] cause I’ve just gone and bought it.

But while I was over on play I had to be very firm, and not go “oooh, look, The Proposition, or wow, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is only €12.00. And what about American Gothic. And are the extras on V for Vendetta any good.”

Because if I bought everything I wanted I’d have no room left in my apt. That is the only reason. Oh, yeah, and the cost. And the fact that I’d have no time to watch them all.

Who am I kidding? I’ll get them all someday, it is inevitable that my credit card won’t surrender to play.

    I am immune to sites like Play and CDWow – it's when I'm actually in the shop that my card takes its bashing, when I actually see the box set in front of me with it's enticing "Was £49.99 Now £22.99" sticker and I think to myself, look how cheap it is, it may never be this cheap again (despite that nagging voice that tells me that it almost certainly will be) and before I know it I'm standing at the cash desk while a spotty 18 year old puts my card in the machine while looking down his nose at my questionable taste in DVD's.

    You didn't buy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang??? Go back now and do us both proud, will you.
    (also, what does it say that I didn't know where "Resistance is futile" came from, but knew exactly what Cole you were referring to? The shame. The shame, I tell you.)

    Ah, Cole. Sigh.

    Well, being totally honest, the real reason I didn't buy Kiss Kiss was because there are no special features, and I'm thinking that at some stage there will be a version released with commentary. So I'm being patient. Waiting for my moment.

    I loved Eerie Indiana! I didn't know it was out! Must go buy. Now. The Hubby got V for Vendetta last night. I fell asleep. But I wasn't watching it so don't take that for a reaction. Don't know his yet. I'm pretty sure he liked it though.

    Hi Heather :)

    I really liked V for Vendetta, it wasn't quite as good as it set out to be, but still most entertaining. Though Portman was a bit pants at an accent.

    I'm still waiting for Eerie Indiana to arrive…

    Eerie Indiana was my favourite TV show for the one or two seasons that it existed… I loved the episode where the guy can hear dogs talking, and discovers that an evil poodle is trying to take over the world. I have a feeling that if I watched it again, it would not quite live up to its memory.

    Two seasons James. 19 episodes in all. The dog episode is my favourite too.

    I've watched almost all of disc one, and while it isn't spectacular it is still more than entertaining. Mainly because of the slightly adult wry tone of the show.
