Victorian Slum House.

I was expecting Ruth Goodman et al but this is still good.

I wasn't expecting them to show just how hard it could be when you had the choice of rent or food. If you can't get a job that day/week, then you're short of money which leads to all kind of repercussions over the the week.

I doubt they would have left the volunteers to starve totally but keeping them on the sort of rations available for the time was interesting.

One family did a flit. Another were sacked following a tailor's strike and left. A third left as they had made enough money to move onto a better area with more changes of earning enough money to keep them.

I still have the last episode to go the 1900's.

I haven't seen it and at this point, I'm kind of hesitant - Ghostbusters 1 and 2 were childhood classics, and I fear that this may put me off wanting to rewatch a beloved childhood franchise for life (I've already been put off from rewatching the Back to the Future trilogy except on the designated dates), the last one I can actually enjoy without it conjuring unpleasant memories from my youth (long story).

Honestly the good bits of the remake are not plentiful enough to make up for the rest of it. Stick with the classic originals. We could always watch a NEW AND FRESH IDEAS film with a similar cast being funny!

We are going to watch Cleopatra tonight- the huge over-budget film which nearly bankrupted 20th Century Fox.

Hope you enjoyed it. I really like it despite Burton being a bit over the top...well even that adds to the entertainment to be honest.

"Kiki's Delivery Service" - my favourite Studio Ghibli film from the 1980s and arguably even better (in my humble opinion) than "My Neighbour Totoro".

thats my daughters fave

I am finally getting to "Castle". I saw some episode here and there but never the whole thing. I promised myself that i wouldn īt watch anything with more than 12 episodes per season but I guess this is an exception because....Nathan Fillion Grin

Who wants to see a movie with Liz Taylor as Cleopatra when there is a play with Josette Simon as Cleopatra???

Two words: Richard Burton (The Paul Darrow of the 60's Smile ).

Finished the fourth season of Wentworth, even though I knew how this season ended the build up in the final episode was still really tense. Looking forward to watching season 5 for the first time.

However, it is back to Arg for the final series of The Adventure Game.

Highlander 5: The Source - the franchise's last attempt at salvation and the one and only direct-to-video installment in the series, in addition to being Duncan MacLeod (the protagonist from the TV series)'s one and only solo adventure, since Connor (the hero of the first three films and a supporting character in the fourth) was killed off at the climax to the previous movie, Highlander 4: Endgame. It can be viewed in all its B-movie entirety on YouTube here: https://www.youtu...VSs6BKWP0o

There should have been only one.

The Andromeda Strain - 1971

Watch this movie and tell me it isn't Robert Holmes* favorite film.

I finished the final series of The Adventure Game, overall not a bad concept and even got the viewer thinking how to solve some of the puzzles.

I have now returned to Wentworth for the fifth season. It feels a bit weird without Bea Smith. It's a bit of a semi re-boot - same location, same baddie, still some of the same goodies but without the main lead who was the centre of attention for the first few seasons.

Mmm - sounds familiar. Hello Blake's 7 series C

The similarities really struck home.

Alien virus.
No one knows how it works, turns out to be airborne.
Team of scientists talking over video monitors.
Base separated into sealed off sections.
A seal breach allows the virus to get out.

I think it's a science fiction staple with variations on a theme.

Watching Mr Sloane: a sitcom of tragi-comic brilliance featuring Nick Frost and Olivia Colman. Astoundingly not renewed after its one and only series. It should have been picked up by channel 4 or netflix...anybody!

I take it back, season 5 is more like season 5 of Melrose Place (for those who liked their 90s US Evening Soaps). The regular cast is being torn apart bit by bit. So far we have lost a further 4 regulars and only half way through. I am still enjoying it but it is becoming a bit far fetched in the storylines.

Captain Blood (1935)

Errol Flynn's first starring role, and the foundation upon which the swashbuckler genre is built, influencing every pirate film right down to Pirates of the Caribbean.
