How I Met Your Mother

[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

4x10 A Herald of the New Age

Strictly Come Dancing
9x20 Week 10 (aka Movie Night)
To repeat myself from last year, "I'm usually in the room when Strictly's being watched, but rarely or barely watch any of it myself. Movie Night's a different beast though, what with being a film fan, and I found it all rather entertaining." Very hard to judge this year -- the score that landed Harry Judd a lowly fourth (of six) would've been enough to top the leader board just a fortnight ago.

A daily dose of sci-fi - Day 20

What's the best adaptation of a sci-fi book/story?

I don't read enough books to judge this properly -- "best adaptation" implies "the one that has been adapted best", not "the best one that is also an adaptation". So, um...

I've not read The Children of Men, but damn it made for a good film.

And especially good for me because I went to the cinema knowing nothing about it (can't even remember what led me there -- a vague awareness it had received some good reviews, I think), and consequently was completely blown away by it.

And it's probably not going to get mentioned anywhere else in this month of sci-fi-ness, so why not now?

Read about a daily dose of sci-fi, with links to the rest of the series, here.
