Happy New Year


  1. Welcome back and Happy New Year! Glad to have you back.

    You could actually watch the whole season up until now on the main Heroes site. I'm surprised the quality was bad. I watched part of the last episode online on my PC and it was really clear. I'm really looking forward to its return in a few weeks. That and House.

    Resolution :: opportunity
    Happy :: Feet
    Bubbly :: blonde
    Kiss :: Knights in Satan's Service ;)
    Leather :: Tuscadero
    Fancy :: Pants
    Pages :: stuck together
    Stupid :: You Can't Fix
    Apologize :: for what?!?!
    Secrets :: and lies

  2. It wasn't bad quality Carl, just not great. Looks interesting enough so I'll probably end up watching a few more.
    I think the main Heroes site is restricted to the US only, or at least so I read, but haven't tried it. May do so later on today.

    happy new year fence…

    Watch CBB for two reasons:
    1. Russell Brand – omnipresent, I know, but feel your annoyance slip away as you realise- "gosh this man is funny"

    2. Which of these unbalanced personalities will go into meltdown first…

  4. Favourite moment so far, Leo Sayer on his tape…. "I was like Rod Stewart and Elton John, I played in the same league as them." No Leo, you didn't. You really, really didn't!

    I need to see "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" but I don't understand this downloading TV from the internet thing and none of the UK channels seem interested in picking it up. Any ideas?

    Secrets :: Victoria's (not the underwear place, but the Best Episodes of Due South)

    I HATE BB and especially Russell Brand (ARGH) but today we turned it on so that the Beloved could prove he was right about Face/Starbuck being on it. Then we got confused about who the hell everyone is. So I looked them up on the official site. My GOD what a bunch of nonentities. Ken Russell being on it is just weird.

    Marian Keyes (Irish writer) had a thing on her blog about her husband asking if she wanted to be on it cos the producers had called her and she's such a fan and had been on one of the BB offshoot progs and thought that's what they wanted her for. But she didn't want to do CBB. But was so flattered they'd asked her until hubby told her they were desperate and asked if he'd do it if she wouldn't. So clearly they were reaching.
    And yerman with the swearing is supposedly 'dating' Peaches Geldof. How famous.

    If you see VM before me, I'll die. I'll just die.

    Heroes sounds like fun. I've made a Resolution to watch more tv. It makes the other resolutions about eating less, exercising more and studying hard more bearable. :-)

  6. I've seen little snippets of Russell Brand about the shop, but never actually paid any attention to him, though he was quite funny on that Big Fat New Years Quiz thingymebob, so I don't object to him.
    Other reason for watching CBB: there is nothing else on.

    Alan, http://www.youtvpc.com/ have your show listed. You don't have to download anything, they are streaming videos, or links to googlevideo or wherever, so take a peak.
    Whats it about?

    Harlequin, I think they are a lot more famous than last year's crowd. Then again I can't remember last year's cause I didn't watch it.

  7. Ooh, thanks for that, just watched the first one. It's a bit pixillated but watchable. As to what it's about, it's the new series from Aaron Sorkin, the guy who wrote The West Wing. Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford (Josh from West Wing) are the main stars. It's about the production team of a satirical TV sketch show. From the first episode it's maybe not quite up to the same standard as WW, but Sorkin is still one of the best TV writers around so anything he writes is going to be very watchable.

  8. Alan, I never watched any of The West Wing, I think I came to it late and just couldn't be bothered to do all the catching up. I may take a look at this Studio thingy though, cause I've heard good things about Sorkin.

    Al, I'm thinking I won't watch it as long as Jade is there. She isn't a celeb, not even by a long stretch and is far too irritating to be putting up with.
