    I always used to watch it and wonder why everyone was raving about it so much. Some of it I DO like (e.g. Ted and Ralph, the ‘black! black!’ artist, the competitive Dad) but surely it’s got to be the most hit-and-miss show ever! I reckon it also sadly paved the way for too many ‘hey we’ve got a catchphrase and a funny voice, can we repeat this episode after episode without actually writing material?’ comedies (surely I don’t need to mention said series’?)

    How EASY must it have been to write the show? ‘I’m into boxing actually.’ ‘Boxing? Oh I’ve been a boxer. Hardest game in the world, mate. Thirty years, man and boy!’ or whatever it was. Now repeat episode after episode changing the profession. Also, a gardening presenter that coughs…an OK idea for one episode, are we going to keep doing it…yes we are. The ‘suit you’ guys are also funny for about 3 episodes then they’re just…not.

    What I DID like was the more surreal elements, like the American TV guy who just says ‘Hi, I’m Ed Winchester!’ then it cuts. It does seem ripped off from Python though.

    I might get the set anyway… the Comedy Connections is definitely on it.

    This clip I’m thinking demonstrates other lines that I’m sure you find hilariously funny but I, sadly, don’t. The psychiatrist side is OK but many of Robert’s lines make me want to smash the screen. ‘Surprise: ooh, I’ve turned into a frog!!’. No.

    All right, the line ‘I look like a dog with a caramel toffee’ IS good. Robert’s delivery is great there. In fact that might be the funniest line in the whole episode.

    > We met Rose (who I find a bit annoying)

    ‘Wilson! Wilson! The lo-ery money! Wilson!’ *lol*

    Unlike some people I still really LOVE the first episode. I’ve probably seen it more than any other and it never gets old. There’s a certain freshness and sheer joy on display that actually made me well up when I first saw it (yes, I am officially sad). Eccleston as the Doctor is instantly pure class, and even though the chemistry with Billie’s Rose gets better later on, you can still tell they’ve got the casting dead right. Burping bins and lack of real danger at the end aside, it’s top class.

    Any time ‘black card’ is mentioned. One of the best Re-mastered cuts.

    Any Cat ‘we’re deader than…’ lines.

    Any gags about the shape of Kryten’s head (e.g. Lister – ‘Do I play the guitar?’ Kryten – ‘Do I have a head shaped like an amusing ice cube?’) Maybe I laughed at it at one time…but not now, sadly.

    Something that always pisses me off for some reason is when Rimmer shouts ‘Alphabettie Spaghetti!!’ in Polymorph. That whole scene is a bit off though. I don’t like Rimmer’s mum’s line ‘I honestly thought my false teeth were going to fall out’.

    Like you said, VII & VIII have too many to list. Not only that, VII & VIII lines are a lot less memorable.

    Eccleston is pretty much the best thing in the second half of Heroes season 1, even though he only appears briefly. The whole back half of that season really did my head in. Poor. I’m making a point of not watching any more of it, especially after season 2 (or what few episodes of it there are) was slagged. I refuse to call it ‘Volume 2’ as well.

    > Miss Hawking, who explained to Desmond the reason he had to leave Penny, wore an Ouroboros broach

    Correct. It’s interesting that if Desmond didn’t go along with what the old woman, Miss Hawking, was saying then the loop would be broken and none of Lost would have happened at all. Perhaps Lost could end with Desmond ‘flashing’ back again and going ahead and marrying Penny. He would never have ended up on the island and flight 815 would never have crashed. Or WOULD it…? What if the crashed 815 that Naomi describes, the one which crashed in the sea and had no survivors, was what happened to 815 if Desmond went back and changed things? Would they be that mad to go with that storyline?

    Incidentally, in the other Desmond episode which shows him as a monk, there is a picture on the head monk’s (whatever a head monk is called) desk of himself standing with Miss Hawking. What does it mean??

    > he is?nt know for depression or drug abbuse

    Well he used to be a heroin user. Not that this has anything to do with his death, which is being called accidental. It seems he had been suffering from insomnia for a while and had prescribed sleeping pills. There was an interview with him a while ago saying he was getting like 2 hours sleep a night shooting The Dark Knight. He may have had pneumonia too, it’s being reported.

    Whatever happened it’s a sad sad loss. At 28…it’s fucking no age. He was just about to hit the seriously huge league too, I feel. He had the the potential to be right up there.

    > I get way too excited when someone mentions a name that links to Red Dwarf. I Have to let them know.

    Yeah I’m always doing that. Whether it’s Timothy Spall cropping up in Oliver Twist ‘he was in an episode of Red Dwarf, you know!’ or explaining every single time Scrapheap is on that Robert played Kryten.

    Me and my mate are a little obsessed with the theory that no scripted UK television show exists that doesn’t have some connection to either Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, whether it’s cast or crew. They get extra points for more than one connection, e.g. Eastenders has Jake Shears who was in Red Dwarf (Kill Crazy), Jo Joyner who was in Who and some bird who was in HP, can’t remember her name. I’m well aware of how sad that is. Kingdom has some too – Stephen Fry does the audiobooks for Harry Potter, he also was GOING to write an episode of Who (that fucking counts), also Tony Slattery did a couple of voices on Dwarf. So there you go…

    Much like the episode with Kate and Juliet handcuffed to each other rolling about in the mud…hmmm.

    Anyone who’s frustrated with Lost should just leave it, you’re never going to properly get into it. It’s my favourite show atm (even beating Galactica FFS!) due to season 3’s utter awesomeness. Drew Goddard coming onboard was a factor in that, I reckon. He wrote/co-wrote some, if not all the best episodes of season 3 – The Glass Ballerina, Flashes Before Your Eyes, The Man From Tallahassee, The Man Behind The Curtain. Top quality television, there simply isn’t a better written and acted show. Michael Emerson…for the love of god, he pwns the world.

    The best way to chat up a girl is by, well, not chatting much at all. You’ve just got to fucking listen, and pretend to be interested in absolutely everything she says. Some/most/all (that last one) girls love the sound of their own voices, so if they see you’re willing to listen to it for a long period of time then you’re in with a chance.

    > The biggest selling point for me is the HD/ Blu-Ray disks is the DTS HD Master Audio at 25mbps!

    That’s all good and well, well and good if you can get the audio to sync with the video. It really pisses me off that if I want to listen to anything better than normal 5.1 my amp won’t do the audio delay function. Also, for DTS HD you need an amp that will actually decode it. My amp detects it but it doesn’t output the quality (if you didn’t read the instructions well you might be fooled into thinking it DID output it).

    This is using a PS3 for Blu-ray, by the way. Do normal Blu-ray players have an audio delay option built in?

    So Torchwood and other BBC HD shows are shot in 1080i25, am I right? You still wouldn’t get a natural film effect from that, would you? In post production wouldn’t they digitally ‘sample’ the tape at 25Hz thus getting the film effect? I don’t fucking know it’s too confusing…

    All I know is that UK TVs refresh at 50Hz so maybe if the show was played back sampled at 25Hz you would get the effect of missing out half of the data and get the smearing effect. That’s why some (eventually all will) HDTVs have a 24Hz mode so they can playback 24fps content (like from Blu-ray films) without the picture looking messy. Or is that complete bullshit?

    > It?s going to be called Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins

    I can understand why they don’t want to use ‘Terminator 4: The Future Begins’ but using ‘Salvation’ is really bad IMO. It just sounds like a crap tie-in game rather than the film itself.

    Christian Bale will return in a more substantial role in the planned sequels. My guess is that in ‘Salvation’ we’ll more or less just hear his voice over comms and maybe all the survivors (including the new character Marcus) are making their way toward Connor’s location, their salvation? Marcus apparently awakes from a coma which he’s been in since before Judgement Day.

    Arnold isn’t really needed because the Terminators won’t be as advanced yet for them to look like him.

    > she is just eye candy, all body and no talent when it comes to acting and the same with her replacement.

    No. Out of the entirety of Who name me a companion actor better than Billie. IMO the pairing of her and Eccleston was excellence, still the best lead casting so far. The next Doctor and companion should definitely be cast together with them focussing on the chemistry, and also making them more equal roles again. The shadow of Rose and the poor treatment of Martha in many episodes wasn’t good for the series. Having her leaving at the end of series 3 because she’s too lovestruck with him and he’s still fawning after Rose is pretty lame. The show shouldn’t have gotten to that point!

    Despite the misgivings about Catherine Tate, at least the character of Donna should bring more life to proceedings. Although it’s easy to predict a scene where she says ‘well, did you find someone?’ and he’ll be like ‘yeah, but she sort of…left…oh and there was this bird on the Titanic she…well…she’s just stardust now’ and just more and more wallowing.

    > I don?t know if Jen was actively toned down for series two?she may well have been

    I think that’s a definite. Katherine IMO is loads better as Jen in series 2. That’s not totally down to her not shouting as much, I reckon she plays her as a more sympathetic character. That’s down to the writing too though. It shouldn’t feel at any point that she is seperate from Roy and Moss, which I think happened quite a bit in series 1. It wasn’t until the last episode (Aunt Irma) that everything gelled (possibly my favourite moment in series 1 is Roy being slapped in the face in the Denholm high fives).

    They all improved really, and it was sad that Chris Morris didn’t stick around because the dynamic of the whole cast would then have been perfect. Instead the main three just didn’t fit with Matt Berry’s character. He’s just too surreal to be as funny IMO. Sadly series 2 wasn’t THAT spectacular, with some parts like ‘Peter File’ just being plain bad I’m afraid.

    Totally underwhelmed by the entire episode, sadly. Better on second viewing though, but not much. I’m usually a Russell T Davies apologiser but…there’s a limit…

    (Only) The GOOD…

    – Tennant. Pwns everyone, a real pwn cocktail (quite suitable for Christmas Day…and enough left for a Boxing Day pwn sandwich)

    – Kylie. Did great with what she had, which was NOT a leading role.

    – CGI. So excellent for the BBC (why are some people still expecting $100 million movie quality?)

    – The presence of three ex-Who actors – Bernard Cribbins, Geoffrey Palmer and Clive Swift (none of them mentioned in the Confidential…too many men (hetero and homo) masturbating over Kylie)

    – The fact that everyone has left London. RTD has created a world of fear! If only he weren’t simply predicting the not-so-distant real future…

    The Acceptable BECAUSE IT’S CHRISTMAS DAY

    – The whole Queen episode.

    – The Poseiden Adventure wankfest (RTD is obsessed with it, as he says on the commentary)

    – The cheese factor turned up to the MAX (‘and I should know because…my name…is Max!’) including the Titanic bridge looking a little like the inside of the Teletubbies house at Christmas with all the coloured flashing buttons, levers and tinsel.

    – RTD going for…something, I don’t exactly know what, with the Doctor linking arms with the angels and them lifting him up.

    The Utter SHITE

    – Max Capricorn. ‘and I should know because…my name..is Max!’ OK, now die, you worst-villain-since-Fear-Her-if-not-the-entirity-of-new-Who. Fucking retirement plan…

    – The ‘everyman’ supporting cast. Badly written annoying characters (‘this is Foon, FOON, hear me? FOON, it’s funneh! and Bannakaffalatta! he actually looks like an alien like we all are (even though we just look like humans and it’s not explained) but in fact he’s a robot who just happens to house an EMP emitter able to disable the Host!!’). Sadly you even want Clive Swift to shutup at the end (well alright you don’t, you just want the script to STOP!!!).

    – The SCRIPT! Oh dear oh dear. RTD breaking his own rules all over the place, completely forgetting how to write an episode of new Who. This does not bode well for the 3 specials in 2009 (not to mention the ’08 Crimbo ep) all penned by him. When will he stop being so overblown?

    All right all right! There is ONE bit in it that I absolutely love –

    ‘Hang on a minute, who put you in charge? Who the hell are you anyway?’
    ‘I’m The Doctor. I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Casterberus. I’m nine-hundred-and-three years old and I’m the man who’s going to save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?’
    ‘No.’
    ‘Then in that case…allons-y!’

    The perfect combination of Tennant and Davies working there.

    I thought Kong was good but he definitely fell into the trap of being more arsed about spending what looks like billions on the effects, particularly the excellent recreation of 1930s New York, than thinking enough about the characters (or about who he was casting – Jack Black being the only one with any spark, Naomi Watts and Adrien Brody were poorly matched, very bland, with the script doing them no favours). And yes, it was too long. By all means make a 3 hour movie, but the trick is making it feel like less. This can’t be done when you’ve got endless ship shots and endless shots of Kong and Ann staring at each other.

    That’s like the equivalent of going out to have a Donner kebab and instead getting a ?100 Chinese banquet. Beowulf is *yawn* inducing.

    As for the question of why bother with mocap that ‘realistic’, it’s because you’ve got classic directors like Zemeckis and Cameron now getting too obsessed with tech to realise it’s not the be all and end all. They do it because they can. As far as the studios are concerned, it’s an animated movie and people are always instantly attracted to them, where if Beowulf had been live-action it would have looked just like countless other crappy fantasy films (Eragon, anyone?)

    6. Don’t Look Now
    7. Spaced Christmas Special (if one existed)
    8. Father Ted Christmas Special (not the best episode, but damn I just love it anyway)
    9. *insert random Pixar film* (because they are joyous and that is how you should be feeling on Christmas Day)
    10. Noel Edmonds Special – Are You Stronger Than A 10-Year-Old (that’ll show the clever little bastards!)

    I suppose he does deserve some credit for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone, if you’re retarded). Although I would have preferred it if they’d cast less British ‘luvvies’ in the roles. Sadly that’s something that’s continued throughout the film series, although it doesn’t matter too much when you’re getting class acts like Gary Oldman, David Thewlis and Ralph Fiennes. Jim Broadbent’s going to be in the next one though and I’m thinking that might be taking it too far! Surely it’s Judi Dench next…

    Tikka was on Dave last week and even though I’ve seen it many MANY times it suddenly hit me that the very first moment of it sums up the entireity of VII and VIII – the audience laugh but NOTHING FUNNY HAPPENS. It’s just Lister looking into the camera. Does this deserve a laugh? Fuck no. The Xtended version is way better for this reason. VII should have had no laughter at all, and it should have been produced with that in mind instead of the forced out-of-place gags and pauses for laughs.

    VII should have been a COMPLETE departure rather than half-baked both ways. VIII is another story. There’s no excuse for it, apart from the 8 episode issue.

    To be honest, for long time I never thought that much of it. But then I read the King short story, not knowing it was the same thing, what with it being called ‘The Body’, then I revisited the movie and it just clicked.

    Apart from stuff like Fellowship of the Ring, all my favourite movies seem to be ones that I watched when I was around 9 or 10 then revisited and re-revisited (like Metallica) them as I got older, appreciating them even more. Something like Raiders of the Lost Ark, I’m more of a fan of it now than ever because all the way through I’m enjoying it as much from a technical pov as I am the story, adventure. I’m not one of those people who thinks watching behind the scenes stuff ruins movies for you.

    I remember watching Terminator 2 when I was 10 and thinking it was the greatest thing I had ever witnessed. Of course, I know now that part of that was the fact that I was watching a 15 film when I shouldn’t have been, it was all very exciting. And come ON the CG was enough to blow anyone away. I sincerely hope James Cameron can push the boundaries again all these years later on Avatar.

    That’s what you call a porno set on Prom night. Of course, for that other American school event you’ve got ‘Homecumming Queen’.

    Regarding Norman, does anyone know if he recorded the VII cameo at the same time as the Remastered reshoots? Or is that way off? I truly do think that if it wasn’t for Remastered, for which GNP needed him, he wouldn’t have returned for VII and VIII at all. Thanks to the new DVD we now know the proper story of why Norman didn’t do III and it makes him look even more of a twat. I wouldn’t have asked him back after that.

    Personally, for the Remastered series’ 1 & 2 I would have blacked his face out of the screens, replaced it with Hattie’s where possible, and of course have Hattie redo all the Holly dialogue and shoot closeups. For Parallel Universe I would have brought in a new male actor to play ‘Hilly’ (or maybe get Norman in without properly telling him what’s going on, just to play that part). The Backwards opening crawl doesn’t need to be changed because you can hardly read it anyway.

    Diana was switched with a double in the ambulance.

    The World Trade Center towers were always just two giant holograms, everyone who worked there were agents who upon entering the ‘buildings’ took hidden lifts to New York’s secret underground city housing millenia-old aeons shaping world events with their minds, the towers collapsing was just CG trickery, as was all footage of the planes crashing (or rather melting) into the buildings.

    Just thinking about that seriously for a moment, as someone who has spent many an hour on various Flight Simulator incarnations (yes, I AM that sad, you better bloody believe it) I know it’s just that, a simulation, but the moves that those planes pulled on 9/11 to hit the WTC towers in the precise way that they did at that speed are so far-fetched that they wouldn’t even feature in an ’80s action flick. No pilot could pull off what they did. One view of the crashes that hardly gets shown is the pulled back view of the whole Manhattan skyline where you can see the plane coming in from miles away. The insanely quick twist it makes is so so exact and precise no-one could achieve it. It just screams ‘drone’. You can hear it as it flies past – ‘DROOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!’

    If I were to appear in one of these pornographor thingys I would sing the lyrics to Holidays In The Sun by the Sex Pistols whilst doing her up the rong’un –

    ‘Cheap holiday in other people’s misery! I don’t wanna holiday in the sun, I want to go to the new Belsen, I wanna see some history, ’cause now I got a reasonable economy. Now I got a reason, now I got a reason. Now I got a reason and I’m still waiting! Now I got a reason now I got a reason to be waiting – the Berlin wall! I’m gonna go over the Berlin wall! I gotta go over the wall, I don’t understand this bit at all, claustrophobia there’s too much paranoia, there’s too many closets I went in before, and now a got a reason it’s no real reason to be waiting – the Berlin wall!’

    That’s what I sometimes sing (or at least have on CD in the background, nothing like fucking to the Pistols, or perhaps The Feeling…). Bodies is another good one. The subject matter really gets you in the mood.

    I think it’s pretty funny when the woman says something like ‘you’re fucking me! you’re fucking me, you’re fucking me!’ over and over again. It’s like er yes we can see that! Or when the guy’s obviously way more into himself than the girl he’s doing the scene with. The more the guy talks the worse it is. They just don’t get that as a man (well, a hetero man at least) you don’t want to hear ‘are you loving my big fucking cock inside of you, baby?’ and scenes where the man’s moaning more than the woman!

    Not that I watch porn. Ever. Never. Is my girlfriend sitting behind me periodically looking up from her work to see what I’m typing. Oh yes. So no, I’ve never EVER seen a porn video…or looked at another woman ever since we’ve been together…and I better never do again, apparently. Oh the joys.

    The Chris one that Jimbotfu mentioned is a really good one. For me a couple of the funniest ones are when no-one says anything for a looong time like the red alert gag one, Rimmer – ‘there’s always some excuse isn’t there!’ cuts to Craig and Danny completely oblivious to the fact that one of them has a line next. I like that it goes to complete silence before anyone realises. The other one is where Rimmer is saying to Cat ‘the only warning we’ve got is you, so stay alert’ and Danny says nothing.

    Because Who can be written by any fucker with a pen or keyboard. Dwarf should be written by Rob or Doug only (well, that’s how I feel) so it would always be a question of whether they would want to do one. I’m sure someone else could have a good crack at writing one but I don’t believe they would get it right, especially in the humour stakes. Fan fics are never as funny.

    I thought it was mentioned a while ago that there was a reunion of the cast for the DVD extras? Someone was talking out of their arse (it wasn’t me, for once, I assure you). I can’t believe Rik Mayall and Ben Elton weren’t involved. Mayall in particular just IS the show. I wonder if they chose not to do it or other reasons got in the way.

    BTTF is definitely one of the most quoted movies between me and my mates (along with Return of the Jedi and The Last Crusade)

    Doc – ‘If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour you’re gonna see some serious shit. (the word ‘shit’ is never broadcast in the TV version, they either just cut it or he says ‘stuff’!)

    Marty – ‘Wait a minute Doc, are you trying to tell me that my mother…has got the hots for me?
    Doc – ‘Precisely’
    Marty – ‘Whoa this is heavy!’
    Doc – ‘There’s that word again, “heavy”, why are things so heavy in the future? is there something wrong with the Earth’s gravitational pull?’

    Biff – ‘Hey McFly! I thought I told you never to come in here??’

    Biff – ‘Why don’t you make like a tree…and get outta here!’

    Biff – ‘Hello! Hello! Anybody home? Think, McFly, think! Do you realise what would happen if I handed in my reports in your handwriting? I’d get fired. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you? Would you?’

    Strickland – ‘I noticed your band is on the roster for the auditions after school why even bother McFly you don’t have a chance you’re too much like your old man no McFly ever amounted to anything in the history of Hill Valley!’
    Marty – ‘Yeah well history is gonna change.’

    I saw Ratatouille a few days ago and thought it was excellent. I don’t see why people think the Pixar films should be really funny. Ratatouille IS funny in places, but only in the way that any non-comedy/family film is. I love how Pixar seem to be making increasingly mature films. OK it’s about a rat chef, but it’s a story that’s taken seriously and goes against the grain compared with what you normally see in movies now.

    I saw TMNT too (that’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in case you are as dumb as the people who need Ratatouille spelled phonetically (‘Rat-a-too-ee’)on the posters and trailers). I was a big fan of the Turtles when I was about 10 and was obsessed with the first film, so it’s good to revisit them now in CG. It’s surprisingly good, despite the story itself being unnecessarily overblown in the fantasy stakes. What makes the film is stuff like Michaelangelo skating back to the sewer lair in a brilliantly animated sequence and the rooftop fight near the end where the use of rain is amazing. I would like to see a darker, lower-key sequel but that’s never gonna happen.
