    Second Person, Present Tense by Daryl Gregory?

    Didn’t enjoy Torchwood at all (Except for the last 2 episodes where Owen got shot and Captain Jack gave that bunch of losers a piece of his mind.)

    But it did spawn this wonderful piece of satire which I saw performed at Redemption’07 (The best sci fi convention on the planet)

    http://www.regdeveloper.co.uk/2006/11/06/torchwood/

    My favourite quote :-

    ‘Doctor Owen Harper. I’m a weasel-faced would-be rapist and self-described twat. By dint of great effort, I have made myself even less sympathetic and more unlikeable than the other characters.’

    Sounds like the new season of Dr. Who – the first episode we had zombies in space, the second episode a werewolf in ye olden times England, and the third episode Vampires in a public school.

    The special effects were pretty good though, and the second and third episodes quite good in a mindless sort of way. But I’m really disappointed in the run and hide mechanics that tend to dominate the drama – everything might as well be set in a haunted house.

    I’d agree for eps 1 and 2, but episode 3 was much better. It dealt with the emotional problems of being left behind by a pretty much immortal time traveller and how the Doctor copes with the companions that he gets so attached to being ephemeral. That for me was the crux of the story. The monster were just a back drop.

    Just watched the 3rd episode of Dr Who, Tennant style. I was starting to have my reservations because his Dr is so frantic and fast paced after C.E. (There’s no time for those ‘Whooey’ moments which we used to get when the theme tune was sung in that spooky way by a female voice.) However, having been moved to tears by this episode, I think I’ve made the transition. After all, the joy of the doctors is that each is so different from the last.

    Just saw King Kong yesterday. Dr When loved it, but for me it was a film ruined by its own special effects. I sat there thinking Oh look! People are being chased by a CGI, Oh look, people superimposed over a CGI! I hardly ever felt Oh my God! Monsters! They’re all gonna die!

    Kong himself seemed to scamper around like a gerbil at times, though for the most part he was the best of the graphics.

    I have seen Om Bak and it is awesome. He can do real things that make wire work look total crap. I’m not a fan of wirework at all. I though the beautiful drum dance scene in ‘House of flying daggers’ was visually superb until people starting flying around on wires.

    Regarding Blakes 7, the old fashioned model filming of the Liberator was superb and still looks good today. However, series 4 used CGI for the Scorpio which was more expensive and looked like a pile of garbage. The ship had a halo around it and was 2 dimensional. The Liberator left it standing.

    CGI can be good. Golum was utterly real, but on the whole, I can spot a CGI a mile off and it leaves me cold.

    One thing I found rather annoying is that they ran Ogilvey and the artilleryman into one character. Scientific genuis versus total nutter. Not an obvious choice in my opinion

    Participant

    I have seen it, and though I usually hate films that rely totally on their special effects, I must say that these were exceptional. It’s a good thing the characters were two dimensional and I had no sympathy for them. It meant I could enjoy the special effects without having to worry about the possibility of anybody I liked getting killed.

    in reply to: Who is your favourite doctor? #75704
    nursewhen
    Participant

    Well, I was a John Pertwee baby and spent many a happy Saturday night behind the sofa (Tell me, I was literally behind the sofa. No other programme ever did that to me, has any it ever happened to anybody else to something different?)
    I took some time to take to Tom Baker as he was so different, but later grew to love him.
    However, I have cast my vote for Christopher Ecclestone because I took to him immediately and because he is a great actor. Helped along most definitely by superb stories and wonderful, though often understated special effects.
    He was the best Doctor because the series he was in was so very good. It took Dr Who out of kids’ TV and into seriously good drama.

    And yes, it was after Basil Brush. The Generation game was in there somewhere too. Oh boy, I loved Saturday nights!

    They could continue the series np, but the movie is the ender. There are other things they can explain like shepard. The movie is alittle to alot past the old series.

    Continue where the old left off up till the time the movie is set in.

    ****** POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT*****

    Yes, that could be done, but the one thing that can’t be explained is Shepherd, they were still in the dark as to his past in the film, so unless it gets exlained to us and not to the characters, that one’s a dead end.
    One of the things I most enjoyed in the series was the ‘will they won’t they’ relationships. Now that I know exactly where, when and how for one of them at least, the suspense is quite seriously impared.

    Yes, it could be done, but it just wouldn’t be the same.

    Hard to talk about something without giving spoilers, but though I thought it was a good film, it definitely put a lid on Firefly. I can’t see it moving on from Serenity. It’s a pity, I would have happily watched that series for years. 🙁

    Someone posed this question in the FAQ section. Maybe someone knows the anser:

    Was it Zaphod Beeblebrox who said at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe that the requirement for a good lunch with friends was a little personal abuse? Can you please find Douglas Adams’ correct quote?

    [/quote]

    The quote is :-

    “Hey, Marvin,” he said into the phone again, “we’re having a great time. Food, wine, a little personal abuse and the Universe going foom. Where can we find you?”

    Yes. it was Zaphod Beeblebrox.

    I wouldn’t have applied ‘magic’ to Prince or the divine clerics, Prince was a *cough* ‘superior?’ being and had powers over and above normal. The clerics were serving a *cough* ‘superior?’ being which also had powers.

    Where I saw magic was in series 4 when they had the midsummer nightmare with Oberon and co and Xev got ‘magicked’ back to life. But then, you could describe Oberon as a *cough* ‘superior?’ being and magic is just stuff that we don’t understand.

    Well here I am, late as usual. I’ve just watched the Battlestar Galactica mini series, all run together as a film.

    What did people think?
    I really enjoyed it (Yes, Nursewhen actually enjoyed a remake!)

    My only gripes were what was the point of making Starbuck female?
    In theory I thought it was a good idea, but what they created was still a bloke, just with a prettier body. My biggest problem was that I didn’t like her. The way she threw Colonel Tigh’s apology back in his face was cruel. It had cost him a lot to do it. Dr When commented that that woman’s got an attitude problem. I hope she spends many happy hours in the brig.

    My only other gripe was the way the old model Cylons had been changed. I loved the ones who looked human, but the original Cylons had looked like robots. The new, old model Cylons looked like a load of computer graphics.

    Maybe it’s me, I’m dense or missed a connection, or it’s because I never read the book or saw the original but I have a question.

    If the reason these housewives are changed is because of nanotechnology in their brains, then what’s the deal with the creepy automaton that Walter and Joanna see at the men’s club? How does this relate to bionic boobs or invulnerable hands? I know the whole mind over matter situation is a factor, but we clearly see the actual wives recover at the party.

    Well I was a captive audience on a plane to Turkey and was forced to watch it. I have exactly the same question. Since the wives weren’t killed, what was that spare body doing in the men’s club?

    The only thing I could come up with was that they moved the brains of the women into robot bodies and then suppressed their personalities using the nanotechnology

    Review – Not a bad film, quite entertaining, but rather shallow and superficial. I wasn’t mad about the angle it took either. Those super aggressive liberated women made me have some sympathy for the rebelling males.

    I have one half of a Vorlon costume stowed in the corner of my room. Originally a back packer frame, now with a huge orange and red pipe round the outside which makes up the shoulders of the Vorlon. To save space, my cat’s furry igloo, decorated with blue cats wearing hats with cherries on is stowed underneath it.

    Why – Roger Whittaker

    Something is going wrong
    With the singer and the song
    And the music isn’t gentle anymore
    There’s a mist across the moon
    And the sun’s too hot at noon
    And the house is dark behind the broken door
    Where the flowers used to grow
    With their leaves are hanging low
    And the constant shadow lies across the floor
    There’s a strange and empty sky
    Where the wild birds used to fly
    And I never tasted bitter rain before

    And will the grass be gone from underneath the sky
    Will the golden flower wither soon and die
    Will the fire burn out the land
    And the sea fill-up with sand
    Will the last word ever spoken be why?
    Will the last word ever spoken be why?

    Someone’s lost the plan
    For the brotherhood of man
    And no one’s trying to find it anymore
    And the winds become a sigh
    For those who hate and those who die
    And the waves are black and slow along the shore

    And will the grass be gone from underneath the sky
    Will the golden flower wither soon and die
    Will the fire burn out the land
    And the sea fill-up with sand
    Will the last word ever spoken be why?
    Will the last word ever spoken be why, why, why?
    Will the last word ever spoken be.WHY?

    Eighth Day – Hazel O’connor

    In the beginning was the word, man said: Let there be more light
    Electric scenes and laser beams, neon brights the light abhorring nights
    On the second day he said: Let’s have a gas
    Hydrogen and cholera and pest
    Let’s make some germs, we’ll poison the worms
    Man will never be suppressed

    And he said: Behold what I have done
    I’ve made a better world for everyone
    Nobody laugh, nobody cry
    World without end, forever and ever
    Amen, amen, amen

    On the third we get green and blue for pie
    On the fourth we send rockets to the sky
    On the fifth make the beasts and submarines
    On the sixth man prepares his final dream:
    In our image, let’s make robots for our slaves
    Imagine all the time that we can save
    Computers, machines, the silicon dream
    Seventh he retired from the scene

    And he said: Behold what I have done
    I’ve made a better world for everyone
    Nobody laugh, nobody cry
    World without end, forever and ever
    Amen (amen), amen (amen), amen (amen)

    On the eighth day machine just got upset
    A problem man had never seen as yet
    No time for flight, a blinding light
    And nothing but a void, forever night

    He said: Behold what man has done
    There’s not a world for anyone
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    World’s at an end, everyone has died
    Forever amen (amen), amen (amen), amen (amen)

    He said: Behold what man has done
    There’s not a world for anyone
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried

    Hey, what a great thread, well resurrected.

    Couldn’t stand Wesley crusher myself, ditto all that super sprog crap, I hate it when the young uns are out-doing the old uns.

    Same for Scooby Doo, destroyed by Scrappy Do.

    I got fed up with the Xfiles when they got into all that alien conspiracy yawn. I liked it when they had a bit of variety, trolls and such.

    I love ‘will they, won’t they?’ relationships. I adored Superman and could have watched him and Lois forever. Then he told Lois and they got married. It just didn’t have the magic after that.

    I’m confused by the question. Is Ally looking for an existing series or looking for material in order to create a series?

    Sound related things that I can think of are:-
    The Phantom Tolbooth, an animated film which involved a world where all sound had been stolen and I think they managed to say the word ‘Oh’ and loaded it into a cannon and released all the stolen sounds.

    In the Original Star Trek pilot, they landed on a planet where there was an eerie tonal sound all the time and Spock found that it came from the leaves of a plant and it stopped when he touched it. That eerie sound was used again and again on different planets.

    In yellow submarine, the Beatles brought music back to Pepper Land.
