Thanks quietearth... I share your opinion. Always felt that often more can be done with a small budget and no stars or studio creeps, than with $100million and The Fresh Prince, although the movie did have a few good bits I have to say, but was seriously lacking on some levels.

Yes welcome projectcyclops.

I too like me some good 'ol made for TV UK PA ala Survivors, Threads, The Last Train, Tripods etc. Did you hear about the upcoming BBC remake of Terry Nation's Survivors series. Too cool that will be.

Anyway, welcome!

I don't think the Survivors remake will be any good considering they used a formula not acceptable in tv (or film) anymore, and that's called a real storyline, hah!

I don't know, BBC television is still a lot more adventurous than most American stuff these days. I predict it will be heads and tails above the lackluster Jericho for example.

BTW I guess Jericho underperformed on its premiere. Do you think its due to the fact that viewers could give a **** or because the 1st three episodes were leaked like a month before online?

Just curious.

Not having watched it (I know that's bad) I think it has to do with them waiting so long to air it.. That's why that one lady got taken off the account.
