I've just started to watch The X-Files again, from season 1.

I don't remember it ever being this ....... lame! I've forced myself to sit through the first 5 episodes of the season, and I'm finding it a bit of a chore to watch the rest.... Does it get better? I can't remember.  mmmmmmmmmm

Hey I watched a v.good Kiwi film the other day, In My Father's Den.

I liked that one too, a good watch.

Yesterday daughter and I watched one episode of 'Two Pints and a Packet of Crisps' - it was a special musical episode and it was hilarious.

I watched the first Rambo film on Saturday.  Had never seen it before.  Not at all what I was expecting, it was considerably less mindless than I had given it credit for.
It is too early to say.

I got daughter addicted to Rambo - when we first came here our computer was only a 386 so we couldn't do much on the net, plus we had no DVD player so all we could watch were VCDs. The local VCD shop had all the Rambos so we sat and watched them. Daughter has been in lust with Rambo ever since bibibibibi

But I'm a Rambo fan from way-back.

I've always been a fan of the RAmbo series... It always had the right mix of action and drama, especially the original one! That was so bloody good!

Seeing what Stalone has done with the new Rocky, I'm looking forward to his take on the new Rambo.. I think they're almost finished shooting the movie just about now.

Yeah I heard there was another Rambo on the way. Curiosity is going to force me to watch it. :D

I watched LINDA LOVELACE FOR PRESIDENT yesterday. No, it's not one of her "X" rated romps, but her lone, R-rated, mainstream "comedy" (and I use that word loosely, but it's in no part the late Ms. Lovelace's fault). Monkee Mickey Dolenz definitely had bills to pay with his appearance in this one. It's bascially a failed, MAD magazine-like attempt at parodying what was happening in the United States in 1975, and a big, flaming iron poked into the face of American politics. Well, it's a bit like a flaming iron poked into the face of satire. It's funny for all of the wrong reasons, and despite the fact that half of the cast and all of the writing team went on to participate in some of the Sid & Marty Krofft kiddie concoctions of the seventies,  it lacks any charm, save Ms. Lovelace who honestly looks to be having fun with the whole thing. Nearly 100 mintues of cheese, but I didn't have any bread lying around to fully appreciate it.

Yeah it picks up half way or maybe towards the end of the first season. You can give the last couple seasons a miss. Herbal enhancement has always helped the x-files. (Most other shows too)

Just finished watching "Wag the Dog" and "Operation Petticoat".  Smiled all through the first, but was laughing through the second.
Moderation....in most things...
