In The Flesh

Anyone caught this on beeb 3? I don't normally watch anything on it but found this excellent series via the Beeb inlayer. Thoughts?

Re: Penny Dreadful

Only caught the first three episodes so far and will probably stick with it. I thought episode 2 had some rather good moments but 3 was wasted on the overlong back story given to Frankensteins first creation.

Re: "Jaaiaa Iuurn"

Just finished watching this on catch up and yep thought it was pretty good. Some great scenery. Could have done with a bit more Ben daniels though and having not read the book I enjoyed the twist. I do confess to using subtitles though, without which Sean Harris would have been been near impossible ...

Re: Radio Times.com says LOST Who available Wednesday

One interesting fat that can be gleaned from all of the rumours that have flitting around for the past few months is that more than one institution and/or individuals (no names, no pack drill) have manifestly 'fibbed' about the existence of these recovered episodes when asked if the rumours were tr...

Re: Colourising old comics

Funnily enough my teens were spent being obsessed with Marvel UK BW titles as the color versions were hard to find. Years letter I eventually sold my Marvel UK and bought the colour US equivalents. For me the colour worked better. However that said the early issues of the B/W Dracula Lives were exce...

Re: Films you come back too

I saw Zardoz about 15 years ago. The only thing tat really impressed me was the cinematography as they had next to no budget. But no I wont watch it again in this lifetime. I've seen the Keep twice. When it first came out and then a few years later when it was shown as part of a Lost and Found seaso...

Re: Original and creative BBC

The other subject that gets shoved down our throats at every opportunity is The Beatles. How many times have BBC4 done a Beatles Night? Perhaps it just seems like they've done it twenty times. Yep = near enough the same tonight on bb4 with whole programming devoted to recent repeats of Wings and Ma...

Lovely. Great news. It was Powell's reading of these which got me into M R James in the first place. Great news.

Re: Denis Gifford, Peter Haining, all that lot

Yes, another shout out here for the Gifford book I carried that everywhere and often touted around school in the 70s. A great book and a good read, and am glad to say I still have it (although the green dust cover what years ago).

Re: Your childhood comics.

I do have early memories of Mighty World of Marvel no 1 back in Oct 1972 but I guess I didnt show enough interest for my parents to continue with it. However when Shiver and Shake came along in March 1973 I bought it avidly. This led me reading most of IPC's humour comic output at the time - Whoopee...

Re: Modesty Blaise - A Taste for Death

Indeed. Glad I caught this. I still have the last episode to catch. I though the score was very good. I really need to pay more attention to the radio drama listings - I suspect I have missed a barrell load of good stuff recently.

Re: Digital British comics?

The worst thing about this is that - ignoring the legality issues - these comics are scanned by people who spend a lot of time in order to make them available completely free of charge to other enthusiasts. The e-bay sellers take advantage of this free source to sell them and make a profit. They do...
