Your Moment of the Year?

Post by Simon36 »

As long as it's related to the topics we talk about on here....

It could have been a Network DVD release, a thread on TMC, a new television programme that wowed you.... what was your moment of the year?

Well it's tv.. The opening ceremony of the Olympic Games; truly spectacular, and a sign of the amazing things to come from our athletes.

Good stuff, nice to know that something current works for some of us.

Still pondering mine!

The Olympics Opening Ceremony was far better than I ever thought it would be, and for that two weeks following there was a definite 'mood' in the capital that has never been there before or since. Which was great!

To be able to own all the Merton Park Edgar Wallace Mysteries and Scales Of Justice films on dvd all released this year was brilliant.
The seven extra films from Independent Artists are a great bonus too.

Got to be the Edgar Wallaces getting released for me, too. As I said at the time, I'd been waiting ten years.

The Olympics opening ceremony for me too, especially that amazing whiz along the Thames, the forging of the rings, the tribute to Great Ormond Street and James Bond escorts the Queen.

In terms of DVD, having Pauline's Quirkes and You Must Be Joking appear was lovely.

For me there is no competition. It has to be Ian Wegg's post revealing at long last the location of the cottage from Ever Decreasing Circles! Immense job.

The Olympics Super Saturday, one of the few days I was back in the UK over the summer. From early in the morning until late at night, the coverage was amazing and even as a non-sport fan I was glued to the screen.

The BBC did an amazing job with the coverage and punditry of the whole event, it is one of those times I will truly remember for the rest of my life. Almost the exact opposite of their Jubilee coverage which I wish to forget, but hope it taught them an important lesson..

How did I miss that! Please tell! EDIT: found the thread now. Amazing find!

I would love to know where the one from Dead of Night is too.

I think one of my moments was finally owning Shadows of Fear, though I think it came out the year before. I thought Sugar and Spice was marvellous and it was just great to finally see it on the shelf!

finally being able to own a pal 625 full colour copy of The Ambassadors of Death without going blind watching it due to the nth generational copy and the micey strobing effects.

That and the Paraolympics.

I'd also add the 30 minute spin in an Aston Martin Rapide but it's not TV related.

My wife and I taking in about 10 shows in two days at the Edinburgh Fringe. Absolutely amazing. What a superb atmosphere and what great shows! :)
