Episode five, as it turns out. I'm surprised it took that long, actually.

Yeah, I figured you'd know if anyone did, Mr. "I know exactly how many stunt cars they blew up by heart."

Even more remarkable is the fact that I remember that conversation, which must have been a decade-plus ago by now. And now I can't help but wonder if we ever solved that age-old "find a way to make Stranglehold wear pants" quandary, which is an even stranger thing for me to remember...

Me too, dammit. Jokes aside, honestly I don't remember much about it at all other than that Paul Gross was awesome.

Yeah, I wonder if it will be one of those things that will be completely destroyed by a re-watch...

(apologies to Heinrad, whose post I somehow managed to miss completely when I posted the same thing he posted. )

HBO is showing the entirety of Game of Thrones starting from tonight. First three eps tonight.

I think Bad Lip Reading has ruined me for these early episodes, I can't watch Robert Baratheon without thinking of frigging Medieval Land Fun-Time World.



edit: This bunch sure does take life for granted despite all the spouting of the doom and gloom, don't they? "We'll talk when next we meet" etc... No, and no you won't.

I'm on the 6th episode, I can't remember if this is the horrid killing babies episode or not.

... Though I'm pretty sure that comes a whole lot later.

"A Golden Crown" . Oh, shit, this is the one where that annoying dragon guy bites it. Awesomesauce.

I've been getting back into 60's Batman over the last week. The tailend of season 2 feels a bit tired, especially the Other Riddler story.

On the other hand, the Catwoman in Collage story revealed the...interesting way she walks down a staircase:

Even beyond that (and Julie Newmar was rather stunning) I really enoyed that story, it felt a lot sharper than the show had been for a while with lots of meta jokes about it being a Hollywood TV show; Alfred in the Batcostume (they've done it a few times now, but it's hilarious Every Single Time) and Catwoman's incredibly scathing summing up of Robin when trying to convince Batman they should work together instead ("He's a little dull, all "Holy this" and "Holy that"", made even funnier by Robin being Very Proud earlier in the story with having come up with a especially contrived one).

I'm watching War & Peace loosely based on the ginormous book by Tolstoy as adapted by Andrew "More Sex Please" Davies, along with Lucy Worsley's proper history of the Romanovs on BBC 4 (which contains many silly for no reason bits where the lisping historian mimics the poses of paintings). W&P is alright, but it seems to be walloping along at a right old pace which seems at odds with the source material and the times. Its like 'what if the C19th was happening right now?'.

I've started watching Battlestar Galactica because its available for pennies these days (the 2004 update). Gaius Baltar is easily the best thing in it, the rest feel like forgettable stereotypes. Even though he hams it up something rotten, without him I wouldn't bother carrying on with it.

I've only watched The Plan and half of the first season so far. I missed the entire thing when it was on TV the first time round.

Watching The Plan first basically ruins half the show for you.

I bought the first and second series initially. Got four episodes in and it was bludgeoning me with all the stuff that had happened pre-Season one i.e. Gaius' dodgy backstory. So I found this webpage that lists the viewing order.

I'm pretty sure the good guys will win. Or the bad guys; nothing will ever be the same again, this is not your Father's Autobot blah blah etc.

Yeah, you need to have watched the 2003 mini series first, as per that website's order.

Anybody starting with season 1 is going to have no idea what's going on.

The Plan was done after season 4 concluded and basically retells seasons 1 and 2 from the other perspective, so hopefully that isn't what you've watched.

Ah yeah, the Mini Series isn't included in the UK season 1 set is it? I'd forgotten that.

And oh Slag, calling it the wrong name just to make me despair, you scamp you. Even beyond it basically being a clip show with new clips, the Plan is quite bad as well and so I'd suggest leaving it till last and then only if you're really interested.

Ooh feck, I realised my mistake! I shouldn't have said The Plan in my first post. I meant the mini-series, sorry Dalek. It didn't click why you said what you said... Yeah, I definitely should have said 'the mini-series', not The Plan.

Haven't bought The Plan, that's for later unless the writing in Hollyoaks take a massive upturn.

I've just watched an amazing doc on BBC 2 about a small Welsh town that engages in the sort of aggressive tax avoidance practised by all our favourite multi-nationals in the hope that our feckless politicians will change tax law to make it a fairer playing field for big and small businesses.

Currently watching The Comic Strip Presents which is NEW and about the phone hacking scandal.

Watching Star Wars: Rebels as the second half of Season 2 kicks in tonight (good lord this trailer got me excited!) so I'll watch that with the kids.

Otherwise, the wife and I have been keeping up with the second season of Galavant as is airs. It's pretty ace.

I'm trying to think of a way of saying Hayley Atwell is awesome that wouldn't make me sound like some sort of disgusting pervert.
