Still Sick, But on the Bright Side… There Isn't Any DROKKING Bright Side Perp!

I’m still suffering from delightfully invigorating bouts of coughing and retching worthy of The Exorcist thanks to whooping cough (Bordetella pertussis), which seems to be enjoying a comeback tour in the UK at the moment.  And, just for good measure, I have also contracted the good old common cold.  Hence, the continuing delay in the next podcast, but please hang in there- it’s returning soon.

I missed the last episode of Doctor Who (The Power of Three– Why are the episode titles so derivative this season?) simply from lack of enthusiasm.  I will watch the episode eventually, but since I’ve also fallen behind with all my regular shows, it might be on the back burner for a while.  One change coming is that the Doctor’s latest assistants Amy and Rory will be leaving the show next week.  I have watched a few of the Making of shows for Doctor Who, so I know that Karen Gillian and Arthur Darvill are good actors who had the chops to play Amy and Rory any way the writers could have written them, but I never warmed to Amy the kissagram or Rory the male nurse.  They just seemed like really boring characters, so maybe this departure will mark a change in the show.  And please, by Hand of Omega, no more Daleks, Cybermen or Silurians for a long, long time.  And make it scarier; much, much scarier.

Dredd 3D – Final moan of the day, I’ve heard both civilians and film critics (who should know better) describe the new Judge Dredd movie as a decent representation of the comic.  No it isn’t.  And, by the way, in the comic Dredd never whispers  “I am the law”,  he shouts “I AM THE LAW!”  Also, he is not caring, sharing or a damn cadet’s wet-nurse.  Get with the programme Alex Garland or I’ll see you doing fifteen in a drokking iso-cube.

    Great blog, Roy – nice one 😉
    Just a thought though; have you watched Dredd yet? As a fan of the strip since its introduction in Feb ’77 and with the Stallone car crash a painful memory, I went along to see this with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised. Not perfect and not the comic version verbatim, it still captured the essence of the character perfectly. Oh, BTW he is speaking ‘I am the law’ into the block PA system…

    Hi Monty

    As you can tell I’m a bit obsessed with Dredd and, actually, anything to do with 2000AD).

    I will be seeing the movie eventually, but on vid rather than at the flicks.

    It just looks like they tried to shoe-horn something that’s obviously a bit camp and over-the-top into the constraints of reality.

    Bah humbug.

    Thanks for the comment though and please keep visiting.
