Re: What Your Movie Preferences Reveal About You

Hi April, how are you Did the test and while I agree with what it said I liked, I wasn't to keen on the movies they picked with the exception of Meet The Parents and When Harry Met Sally, which said I would be 90% interested in. Even then of that genre I'd prefer films like The Kid, Mr.Smith Goes To...

Re: The Bletchley Circle; Rachael Sterling a 50s Emma Peel

The BBC seems less likely these days to norture shows along. An example is Only Fools And Horses, which got of to a slow start viewing wise bit grew into one of the UKs greatest ever sit-coms. But now they won't take any risks

Re: Laramie continues to impress me

I discovered recently that Robert Fuller was 2nd choice to play Joe Cartwright in Bonanza behind Michael Landon. Personally though Fuller wasn't much older tha Landon, I think he'd be to mature to play the young little Joe. Though to be fair to Michael Landon I thought in the latter Bonanza's Joe tu...

Laramie continues to impress me

I get the impression that the tv western Laramie, historically isn't as highly thought of as other great shows like Wagon Train, Bonanza and The High Chapperal. However, I've been watching more episodes, particulary seasons 1 and 2 and continue to be impressed by the quality of the series. It stars ...

Spoiler I've just watched the first episode Of The Happy Valley, a cop thriller set in a rural part of Yorkshire.

Mickey Rooney RIP

It's an end of a era, Mickey Rooney has died at age 93. I have a theory about Mickey and his time at MGM. He was known for his classic musicals with Judy Garland like Babes In Arms, Babes On Broadway and Girl Grazy but while she was put into one musical after another with endless rehearsals (The Clo...

It's about a group of nurses serving in a medical unit near the front line in World War One. The big names involve...

It's from the Sports Relief Charity show where Kylie Monogue sings her old it Especailly For You,that she originally sang with Jason Donavan. It's played for laughs, but it gets better as it goe...
