As promised, a more positive entry, based on TV I've been watching recently. Spoilers herein, so apologies to people who've only watched one of the series, since I can't be bothered to split this across multiple entries.
( Battlestar GalacticaCollapse )
( Stargate SG-1Collapse )
( Stargate AtlantisCollapse )
( The 4400Collapse )
( Dungeons & DragonsCollapse )
On a side-note, I've been pretty impressed by Sky+ since I got it. Basically, it works extremely well, except for when it doesn't. Key points: it acts as a VCR, but records onto a hard drive, with many hours (70? 80?), so no need to worry about changing tapes. I can tell it "tape SG-1 every week" then not have to worry about programming it again. And in the event of a power cut, it picks up the time from the signal when it's turned back on, so as long as power is restored before the program starts then I won't miss it. Also, the main problem that I had in the past (using a VCR) was that some programs (e.g. Buffy/Angel) had very low volume during the episode. (It was fine in the adverts, and when watching it live, so I assume this was deliberate, or at least not coincidental.) That hasn't happened at all with Sky+, which is nifty. The only snag is that sometimes the picture freezes on playback, and I can't fast-forward through it; I suspect that there's a disk error, but I haven't got round to taking the thing apart or arranging a time for the Sky guys to come and fix it. All in all, very nifty.
