What are you watching?
Child Of Auron
I started on the few remaining episodes of the The Avengers season 1.

It is a very different beast to what it became in the Diana Rigg era but what I have seen so far I have enjoyed.

I watched the pre rigg era episodes a while back. A bit rough and ready at 1 st but they were recorded live after all! But they do get better as you go on watching. Honor Blackman made a huge difference. She was the 1st co star who matched Patrick McNee in the charisma stakes. The chemistry between them was there from the start. I would have loved to see her and Diana Rigg with McNee...very interesting thought.

Not read that but...you have set me off checking out the new fiction of Space:1999! Starting with Shepherd Moon. The 1st story had me on the edge of my seat.

Henry V- the DVD of the RSC version with the same cast we saw live in Stratford a few years ago. Brilliant.

Forbidden Planet - a 1956 sci-fi classic starring the late great Leslie Nielsen (his first starring role) long before he turned to comedy, showing he could do straight, dramatic roles with a twinge of humour (although I have my doubts about those who grew up watching the Naked Gun movies taking Mr Nielsen seriously in this).

I have restarted watching Buffy for the nth time. Coming up to series 3.

One of my fave 50s sf films. Full of ideas and great effects and Robbie the robot!

Have you seen the musical 'Return to the Forbidden Planet'? Based on the film, which was based on Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', it used FP's story, setting and characters, Shakespeare's dialogue and rock & roll music. One of the best shows I've ever seen!

Classic movie ten years or more ahead of its time. Commander Adams was clearly the inspiration for Captain Kirk, Robby the Robot would influence sci fi for decades, and the idea of an extinct, highly advanced alien race leaving behind technology we cannot understand pops up frequently in Babylon 5 and Farscape.

The ideas and stories of these extinct aliens is fascinating intelligent and brings to the screen ( so to speak) the unseen menace. Much much more frightening than a man in a rubber alien suit and when used well makes for scary viewing. My eyes would get as big as saucers watching those scenes as a child. No visual alien but eerie sounds and the doors destroyed by malevolent violence....brilliant.

Forbidden Planet, superb, one of my very fave scifi, along with Hammer Quatermass and the Pit, the original Planet of the apes, the original Time Machine etc.
great quotes -Monsters from the ID! My evil self is at that door!
I nicked a phrase for use in a short story - Krell-ian archway...

Having just watched the Strafford-upon-Avon version of Henry V, we are excited to watch Ken Branagh's Henry V tonight. Featuring Brian Blessed. Probably my favorite ever film.

I found The Avengers started to really get going in its third season. Some enjoyable episodes in the second but with three supporting cast to McNee it felt at times too disjointed and was still a little dry.

I finished the recently found Tunnel Of Fear episode and enjoyed it too. These earlier episodes have impressed me more than they did on initial viewing 10 years ago. I will see if I need a re-appraisal of the second season when I get to it.

Meanwhile, I have fast-forwarded to 2009, across the Atlantic and arrived in Mystic Falls!

Yes, I have started watching The Vampire Diaries....
