Re: So what did everyone get delivered for Christmas?

In my old school style, I'd use a Cron job to trigger the change I suppose - but it's only a once a year thing! I liked Falling Skies because it developed well, I liked Noah Wyle in it too, he sold it well. It does become a little Rah Rah America in places, inevitably, but at 10 episodes a season I ...

Re: So what did everyone get delivered for Christmas?

Happy New Year one and all - Dai X has now been stripped of his festive wear, at least I remembered it this year! As the small one gets the most presents these days, I decided to raid Amazon flash sales and the like for items including Dollhouse on blu-ray (still not watched), Buckaroo Banzai (rando...

Re: The Big Apple (no, not that one, the other one)

O. M. G. Crash, that signature of yours has been ringing a dim and distant bell in my head for a while now so I finally went and looked it up. Straight back to my Uni days, struggling to find a TV to watch Space Above and Beyond on at the dead of night! It was the Firefly of its time! And now I find...

Re: The Big Apple (no, not that one, the other one)

The meteor one? Yes, I tend to be pretty up to speed due to the little one liking to watch it with me! I may have missed something, but I did have a few niggles although they're understandable. They did of course have to do the "pew pew" sound effects for the big laser blasts, it's a kids show after...

Re: The Big Apple (no, not that one, the other one)

It was a pretty tiring holiday trying to hit all the major sightseeing stuff while also trying to keep a seven year old amused, but I went up in a helicopter on my 40th which was cool and saw a lot of the movie stuff. I even, would you believe, recognised a spot in Central Park from the end of the f...

The Big Apple (no, not that one, the other one)

I am marking the start of a new decade in New York City in a week's time. I can't promise I'll visit many specialist emporiums but if anyone has anything light-ish they think I could pick up I could try! I am also open to recommendations, although the itinerary is pretty packed; Midtown Comics seems...

Re: Thunderbirds Are Go - Low Cost!

They'd better hurry up, the toy firm will not be impressed if they don't inject some more interest soon. I'm really surprised they've left it this long, unless perhaps they can do a big cliffhanger at the end of season 1 to make a long episode - they're going to run out of time to get them all out i...

Re: Space 1999

Ah, Space 1999. Long time since I revisited it, but I loved those Eagles - had die cast toys that I remember being very hard to find and very brightly coloured compared to the show's! Solid, though, and pretty faithful to the original design. Ironic you should mention Voyager in the same breath, as ...

Re: Going After Firestorm

Ha. Skrill. Funny: http://efc.wikia.com/wiki/Skrill I didn't know about Firestorm, I'd seen the kickstarter mentioned in the Gerry Anderson YouTube channel but hadn't read anything about it as the character designs seemed, well, childish I suppose. I'm surprised the original didn't do better, Anders...

Re: X-Fighter Design

I saw this first time and I thought Star Fury - Thunderbolt upgrade. Shiny! Perhaps it should have a mini death blossom a la Last Starfighter?!
