The Watch.

I have to admit, I wanted to hate this. It is not my vision of Terrry Pratchett, not my vision of Vimes, or Cheery, or Carrot, or Angua, or Ridcully, or Lady Sybil, or Vetineri, or Throat, or anyone else, and they have so far left Nobbs and Colon out...

But...

While I cannot call it Pratchett, it has merits of its own, and I am hooked.

Edit: See update below

Tea with the Dames, an hour and a half romp with Dames Judi Dench, Eileen Atkin, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith. Lovely behind the scenes stories, gossip and laughs. Loved it.

Z Cars box set from the 1970s. As usual I was googling the actors to see what other stuff they did and found that PC Quilley was in B7! He was in Headhunter and it was a very fleeting appearance which I had never spotted before. Will keep em peeled when we get to that rewatch.

Face to Face, a 1967 Spaghetti Western by Sergio Sollima with morally grey undertones, similar to the following year's The Great Silence by Sergio Corbucci (both movies feature a score by the late, great Ennio Morricone).

Is every director of spaghetti westerns called Sergio?

Only the Big 3 - Corbucci, Leone and Sollima. Smile

I always thought he was a fictional character dreamed up by Paul McCartney.

Think of him as the American Nelson, but he was sick with Shingles during our Trafalgar (Midway). Aside from that, he led the Pacific fleet from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay.

I enjoyed that series. Hubby used to call it 'Men Behaving Perfectly Normally' Grin
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

More Pingu, more plasticine/claymation penguin adventures. I'm also checking out a Pingu game for the Game Boy (released only in Japan). Smile

Watched 'Man in my Head' from Out of the Unknown, with Tom Chadbon. And then 'Jeremy's Mummy' from Peep Show, also with Tom Chadbon in it.

Der Hausgeist ('the resident ghost'), one of the few German comedy series worth watching (to be honest, I can't think of another one off the top of my head...). It's about the late baroness Henriette von Sydeck (+ 1918) who used to haunt her old Berlin villa until the building gets demolished. Now she decides to move in with the nephew of an old friend.
The series hadnn't been available for ages but when I checked again last week (having been reminded of it by watching Randall & Hopkirk), I realised that is has been re-released hooray! It's great to watch the series again after so many years. Susanne Uhlen who plays Henriette is sensational! 30 years ago, I fell in love with her, and I fear it's happening again... (Don't tell Dayna!)

what's that you're saying, Dayna?... you've got the bombs stashed ready to use on ungrateful followers?...what was that?...you have switched your allegiance to TT?! **WHAT WILL SOOLIN SAY?!**

More Pingu, specifically an anime continuation/spin-off entitled Pingu in the City.

The Watch.

Based on.... no, even to say it is Inspired by Terry Pratchett's Watch Novels is to give it too much credit. It is more of a loose and rambling adaptation of Pratchett. I took one look at the trailer and knew I would hate it....

And then, I watched it.... and I love it.

Now don't get me wrong, it is in no way a faithful rendering of Pratchett's works. I am a huge fan of Pratchett in general, and of The Watch novels in particular. Vimes, Sybil, Carrot, Angua, Nobby, Colon, et al are as real and important to me as my beloved B7, Farscape, and B5 characters.

The Vimes of the television show is not my Vimes, Carrot, not my Carrot, The Patrician, not my Patrician, etc etc etc. *

As a screen adaptation of Terry Pratchett's works, it is a complete and utter failure...

And yet...

On its own merit it is really very good, very good indeed.

I can't wait for season 2.


*Pratchett type footnote: I really do like Angua, though.
