    Bloody hell. "an audience shift and increased production costs" How stupid are they? It's the MRU and the stupid helicopter that's cut the heart out of the storylines and the budget - just get rid of that wannabe-Rush crap and the show will recover, stylistically and financially. If the producers had any sense, they'd be grovelling at Hallmark's door to be picked up for another series, sans-money-and-soul-draining helicopter
  2. Ooh, it does. First I'm hearing of such a movie. I shall have to make some inquiries.
  3. I saw The Proposal today. It wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, but it wasn't bad. I like that Ryan Reynolds is getting consistent work these days. I wish he'd had a bigger role in the Wolverine movie.

    ^Yeah / I had a smile on my face and tears in my eyes. Strange feeling, but I've never seen these early episodes of his, so I guess happiness wins out. Scottie and Dan, together at last! ... Or again!
  5. Finished The Shining! The ending was completely different to the movie, but they're both great! So it was a nice surprise to get to the end of it and not know what was going to happen I could have done without thinking that hedge animals are going to maul and kill me, but that's what you get for reading horror in the middle of the night. *Shiver*
  6. I abandoned the Little House book for a while. It was just so boring. To be fair, I didn't give it much of a chance, but I really don't see 19th century American prairie life appealing to me all that much. Soooo... I'm taking a break from the Children's Lit reading list, and reading something that *I* want to read - The Shining!! I've had it for ages, and of course I know the story, but I've never read the book until now. It is great (It's Stephen King - of course it's great!) I read 100 pages last night and I only put it down when my eyes refused to stay in focus anymore lol. I'd be reading
  7. Well, the last movie I watched was Girl's Best Friend or something. It was pretty boring so I won't bother with that. But before that I watched Zach and Miri Make a Porno. That was hilarious I don't think I was aware that it was a Kevin Smith film. I might have seen it sooner. Graphic, but funny.
  8. The Hangover. So funny, and the tiger is so cute
  9. Finished The Wizard of Oz! It was so easy to read, and enjoyable. A bit darker than the movie, but it was appropriate. Real fairytale stuff. The only problem was, I had a bad dream about the Lion after reading it. There's a bit in the book where it says that he's the only lion in the forest because all the other lions got killed by a monster... so I dreamed about him finding the other lions dead, and being all alone, and it was sad. No wonder he was a coward! If he died, there'd be no lions left at all! Next book on the list is On The Banks Of Plum Creek. Apparently it has something to do
  10. Finished "reading" The Magic Pudding. I pretty much just rolled my eyes over the last 80 pages to absorb the one or two pages worth of actual information. If it wasn't a library book, I'd have ripped it to pieces out of pure frustration. Thankfully, that's OVER and I've been able to move on to the next book on my list, The Wizard of Oz. I'm not a huge fan of the movie, but the book is infinitely better than The Magic Pudding, and I'm just thanking every lucky star in the heavens that I get to read something with a plot!

    I noticed the Umbilical Brother! I related a little too well to his desire to be a dog I'm gutted about Sterlo. It all happened so fast... (I say this with jealousy and affection:) Terri is a sl*t!
  12. I just had a scone. If I hadn't eaten it, I might have married it.
  13. I read "Seven Little Australians" last night. It was written over 100 years ago, and by today's standards, the child-abuse is pretty horrific. Back then I guess it was acceptable to repeatedly whip and beat a six year old... *shudder.* It's hard to take my mind back that far and say that it was "normal" because... I really don't want to get into the habit of thinking that something like that would ever be okay. Apart from that, the writing was really good, and oddly contemporary. Don't know about the plot. I guess it was okay. Not very pleasant though... Interesting, I guess. I don't regret re
  14. Finished The Wind in the Willows. Something sort of happened, eventually, but it still wasn't very interesting. The descriptions go on forever and the characters are all horrid. Now I'm reading The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne. Again, nothing much happens, but it's pretty much to the point and the characters are fun. I'm enjoying it

    Classic All Saints was so sad today. I'm not usually one to be moved by dying children, but... Alex finding the baby... eh I didn't like that Scottie threw away his penny, but I can't really blame him. Tough times. And no more Luke! Aw! What was Terri's problem with Jack? I didn't get that... Pretty funny when he hit on her though, lol. Jack: "You can go out to dinner with me some time?" Terri: "Where to, McDonald's!? How old are you!?"

    That was actually a pretty good episode. There was no helicopter!! Worst promo ever though. Amy didn't "organise a picnic," and even in the promo, you could see the picnic basket that Bart was carrying...
  17. I don't like Hugo, and my like for Martha comes and goes. However, I hated her tonight. She's an unbelievable hypocrite. I don't care if she moves on from Jack, because she has to some time, but making out with his cousin on his birthday seems like the epitome of bad taste. Especially since I don't like Hugo!
  18. I'm halfway through The Wind in the Willows. It's really quite boring. I don't mind kids' books about animals, but I'd prefer them to do something other than have lunch and comment on how nice everyone's home is. It's almost 300 pages... 120 in, nothing's happened... *shudder.*

    It was Frank's first episode in Classic All Saints today. He said the F-word to Terri! I was shocked! I started watching the show when they were already in the ED, so the effect of closing down Ward 17 was lost on me a bit. Seeing all the Ward 17 characters in the ED I knew and loved was kind of comforting. The important thing is, the relationships are still there. It hasn't disintegrated into a bed-hopping free-for-all of inconsequential "action." Jack's already there. Now I just wait for Dan, Bart, and Ricky Yay for Rosie from Neighbours too
  20. Have you seen the movies yet? I like them better. I just think the characters have more interesting personalities than in the books, while remaining convincingly a product of the 1940s. The humour that's injected into the story helps too. I recently read Animorphs #25, one that I missed back in the days when I was obsessed with it. What I can't believe is how much of it was ripped off to make #44, a book that I hated because it was nothing but a 140 page excuse to put a kangaroo morph on the front cover, with no relevance to the overarching story line and not much humour (except for the b
  21. I FINALLY finished reading The Chronicles of Narnia!! I'm not one for battles, so when I saw that the last book was called "The Last Battle," I was concerned. And rightly so. It's quite a disturbing, depressing, and oddly graphic tale of death and destruction... buuut it all turns out alright in the end, so I guess I'm happy. Hail Aslan!
  22. Maybe Jazz could come back and be Tony's friend, having gotten over her romantic feelings for him. However, Rachel is so neurotic and possessive that she drives Tony to become attracted to Jazz again, and he makes the first move, taking Jazz and himself by surprise, and allowing Rachel to say "I knew it! I knew since the day you cheated on me with that Bridget woman that you'd do this to me! That's why I married you! Just so I could tell you I KNEW IT when you inevitably cheated on me again!!!!!" Tony and Jazz would be together, and Rachel would get to be a self-righteous cow. Everyone would b
  23. She has one in the archive: http://www.backtothebay.com/forum/index.ph...t=0&start=0 Good on you for making a new one though. I miss Jazz. I'm still waiting for her to come back and save Tony from a loveless marriage.
  24. Well I forgot Jason's birthday... Happy belated birthday Jason!
  25. I saw Tropic Thunder and Step Brothers last night. They were both really funny People that hilarious should not be able to write and direct and produce as well as act. It's not fair!
