I love UFO. Met Ed Bishop a few times at various conventions - such a nice chap.

Will you stop it! You've got me watching The Champions, don't start me on UFO too! Beautiful dreamer wake unto me...No! You can't make me!...starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee...I swear Michael Billington sang that in an episode of The Professionals too. It's like his theme tune.

Watching the first season proper of Battlestar Galactica and still loving it. I know things went a bit awry towards the end but personally I do feel this was one of the best sci-fi shows of the 21st century.

PS - I did get season 8 of The Vampire Diaries for Christmas Smile

CofA - you are right about BSG being one of this century's best. You are compelled to watch it because it is so thrilling and the storyline running through is like a marathon you must complete: half way through the last series we unfortunately hit "the wall" but we must discuss the ending when you get there.

I loved BSG - it was terrific drama, with complex, believable characters. Good guys did bad things for what they perceive to be good reasons, and vice versa. But I didn't get to see the last series, 'cos that was when Virgin & Sky had their big falling out and we lost all our Sky channels. Perhaps that was for the best?

Go for it. The writers' strike stopped it half way through the last series. It ended then on one of THE most amazing cliffhangers I have ever seen! When it came back...it didn't reach that giddy height...BUT I have only seen it once and a 2nd viewing might temper my disappointment and give me a new view of it.

My only Champions claim to fame - Stuart Damon cut the ribbon on the new Tesco that opened IN town. Back in the day when supermarkets were all on or near the high st. Early '70s, possibly 1973-ish? Maybe slightly earlier. He must have wondered what kind of backwater he'd wandered into. Lol

Scarface (complete with Cluster F-Bombs) and maybe I'll throw in To Live and Die in LA as well (complete with Wang Chung soundtrack).

I am hoping the same when I get to the last series. I have seen season 1 three times now but the others only once before, so I am really looking forward to starting those soon

Mary Poppins Returns..saw Boxing day.


Music good. LMM awesome(duh!) Story-line a bit erratic. the romance a tad forced.

Some awesome cameos...No Stan Lee but Dick van Dyke, Angela Lansbury and Michele Dotrice

a solid 9/10.
I used to be such a sweet sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me.

re George bailey..

He was very passive. Things happened to him and then he reacted. More-so as an adult.

for example..he never appeared to explain to Harry that he also wished to attend college. SO when Harry returns married and with a job, George has to pretend he's happy when he really isn't.

When he finally marries Mary, SHE offers their savings to save the BBBL . But we then discover she's bought a house without George knowing about it. Mary slaves to make the house a home while bringing up their 4 children. George at best is a stereotypical 1930's father.

George has a flirty relationship with Violet, to the extent he gives her his families money almost in front of the bank examiner.

When Uncle Billy loses the money, George reacts with violence . He leaves and tries to placate Potter. He rebukes Zu-Zu's teacher and ends up in a fight with her husband.

When we do the whole "World with out George"..

Mary again saves his ass by getting their debtors and her rich ex-suitor to loan him enough money to cover the missing cash .

Watched the Beatles "A Hard Day's Night" tonight. 1964- I remember my Grandma taking me to the film and the older girls screamed throughout the entire film. I didn't hear the actual dialogue for years after! Loved it! I was an original Beatles fan at age 8.

I don't see him as passive more as a man of great generosity and sympathy who puts the needs of other people before his own, swallowing his own disappointment but obviously holding onto it deep inside. Phew that was a long sentence. He's a hero! But part of that is other people - his family included - look to George for answers, expect HIM to come to the rescue...ever since he saved his brother's life.
When he reacts at least he is doing something positive. Everyone puts burden after burden on his shoulders until he reaches the point when it is too much, when he can no longer find the answer to the problem. He is only human after all. And when the brown stuff hits the fan and George finally reaches saturation point..THAT is when everyone realises how much they owe him and come together to save George.
Not a jerk...I think it was that word...never a jerk. An everyman work a day hero.

Love that film. Love the Beatles. Went on a Beatles tour, Liverpool in 2017...I found myself unexpectedly moved to see how ordinary their beginnings were. Especially Ringo's...
