While there are many - and often valid - doubts about the intelligence of Torchwood, there are times when you realise that the aliens ain't much brighter.

Cut for spoilers for Adam and Reset )

Challenge!

After spending a lot of time today in Forbidden Planet with a bunch of completely insane women who I love meeting up with[1], an event which included reading out the blurbs on the back of Redemption DVDs, I have a new challenge.

Comment here, and I'll give you a film title[2]. You then have to provide me with a suitable back-of-DVD-case blurb to ensure that the film reaches its full audience, so don't forget artistic merit is as important as those zombie lesbian nuns!

[1] [livejournal.com profile] dracothelizard, your secret is out! Riona grassed on you!
[2] The title may be a real film title or I may just make one up for you.

Excellent.

Now tell me which way they're going...

Yeah, I'm sad and pathetic )

Ooooh!

Am at home with [livejournal.com profile] m31andy and we have been having an entertaining evening casting the Clangers (Major Clanger is clearly Gene Hunt, the Soup Dragon is Phyllis and Small Clanger is Sam Tyler, with occasional Master moments when he breaks out the gas mask.)

However, episode two involves the line: "The only thing they can do is get out the equipment and try and catch it."

Back!

Met [livejournal.com profile] m31andy tonight in a pub. There's a shocker for you.

I learned many things tonight.

1. If you kiss your same-sex friend hello, there will always be a couple of bowsies at the bar who assume that you are about to indulge in hot lesbian sex in front of them.

2. The Trafalgar Studios are pretty small.

3. John Simm is superb at comedy.

4. John Simm probably goes home with his face in agony every night - he didn't *look* like John Simm in the play.

5. The high point was realising that all the many female roles were played by Helen from Drop the Dead Donkey who was fantastic.

6. Adrian Bower completely reminded me of an ex-flatmate.

7. Andy (or to be precise, her laugh), completely pulled John Simm on stage. She laughed (at a funny moment) and for a brief second there was a completely non-Elling expression on his face and he grinned like mad. (Thankfully he was supposed to be smiling at that point, but I reckoned he left his head in Adrian Bower's lap for a couple of seconds more than usual).

8. Elling is a superb play and I strongly urge all London readers to go.

ETA: 9. There are completely far too many occurrences of the word "completely" in this post.

New meme!

[livejournal.com profile] fiandyfic are claiming they're in an "enabling" mood. Apparently they're also feeling mellow. No doubt some fictional character is huddled in a foetal position whimpering gently to himself as a result.

But this means that they have a meme going.

So go over, pick a fandom, and be inspired!

Rec!

[livejournal.com profile] mctabby linked to this and I'm continuing the rec: Platform 9.99999999999999999999... by [livejournal.com profile] trickofthedark. Harry Potter, gen, post-Deathly Hallows, illustrated and absolutely lovely. It's like Posy Simmonds started doing fanfic.

Oh god...

...the caravans... they're following ME!!!!!!!

... and to be honest, I'd be very surprised if someone hasn't done it before.

What if it turned out that Jack Harkness is absolutely shite in bed? He's good at pulling, but all his multitude of partners wind up *really* disappointed...

Am bored.

Entertain me.

Oh lord....

*grits teeth*

Go ahead, come up with the fics you think I'll never write and I'll try to write them.

Amazingly, I got nine out of 10, despite only having seen one of the genre in my entire life. Clearly it is in my subconscious...

A note to the writers/makers of certain TV series.

STOP IT!!!!

ETA: No spoilers, but it's damn annoying to discover when you're halfway through a fic that certain bits crucial to the plot that you remember as being part of that particular time period (and have had a certain amount of difficulty explaining to your slightly younger co-writer that yes, it really did work that way in an above-the-board manner) that the writers of the original series have started using same bits in their story.

Throw in the activity that someone in another TV show was filmed doing this weekend, and you have two writers screaming at the TV.

Still, at least I know exactly how Life on Mars will end now.
