I managed to get Life on Mars series one and two (which I've never seen) and the complete Fawlty Towers, which I've not seen in donkey's years. I still love buying DVD's, so many people seem to think its old hat now, but maybe with a DVD player that upscales they don't look so bad on larger screen TV's?

Thats a reasonable question: If you buy an upscaling DVD player, what is a good sized TV screen before the DVD starts looking fuzzy and VHS quality?

I love Life On Mars. I have the DVDs of the two series and have watched them a bunch of times. Good fun. Just avoid Ashes To Ashes (if you can).

That bad eh? That’s a shame as I’m a sucker for 80’s synth era TV shows. I’d heard it wasn’t as good as Life on Mars, but I didn’t know it was bad. And today I bought another copy of Best in Show (made by the same guys who did Spinal Tap). I lost my original copy and its too good not to have.

A while ago I was reading a page online called ‘Great films you might have missed’, and near the top was ‘Pay It Forward’ with Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and the kid from The Sixth Sense. “No really” the article proclaimed: “... its a massively underrated film with a genuinely interesting premise”.

My arse was it. The other week I found this film in a shop for 30p and having seen it I feel ripped off. A big old pile of saccharine tosh with one of the soppiest endings I’ve ever seen. Awful damn film.
