  1. What Are You Watching?

    The Bill, a long-running UK cop show that I've been watching a lot of lately to investigate its rather bizarre IMDb ratings. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084987/epdate What baffles me is that the episodes getting the most attention from IMDb voters are usually the ones that have the least to do with the show's most iconic storylines. The Don Beech scandal has been seemingly ignored aside from a special episode set in Sydney, Beech on the Run. The 2002 episodes involving Chief Inspector Conway's murder, DS Singh's resignation and a fire that killed six other officers have been seemingly ignored, yet the transitional episode in between gets ten votes. The 2005 Sun Hill Fire has been ignored yet a relatively uneventful episode later that year gets 14 votes. The murder of Sgt. Boyden has been ignored but the episode featuring the investigation of his death on a short-lived spin-off got 15 votes. And so on.
  2. 14 hours into Pokemon UltraMoon, 57 on my Pokedex. I started with a Popplio this time, though I was half-tempted to do another Litten-Ledybug pairing, this time calling them Felix and Bridgette.
  3. I got back to Pokemon Moon for the first time in a while last night, and I beat the Elite Four and the Chmpion, thanks mainly to my Incineroar Adrien and my Ledian Marinette.
  4. What Are Your Brushes With Fame?

    At OzComicon Melbourne in 2012, I got an autograph from Julie Benz and I asked a question or two in her panel. Also, I remember walking past Anh Do and getting a "Hey, man" when he was performing at my university. Rather ironic if you're familiar with Anh's more recent work.
  5. All of time and all of space....

    Because he's busy in Engineering. Lt. Kyle should be available though. My first answer would be to the late 60s so I can recover the missing Doctor Who episodes, but that's taken. Maybe last Thursday night? I have an overdue phone bill.
  6. What Are You Watching?

    Media Watch, tonight looking at the handling of the announcement from Buckingham Palace last week, among other things.
  7. I Have A Bad Feeling About This

    So far all I've done to celebrate it is play Knights of the Old Republic II for a couple of hours and watch the Family Feud Star Wars special, which was fun. And I'm wearing a Darth Vader shirt, though that was accidental. But the Fourth will be with us for a while yet.
  8. What Are You Watching?

    Q&A, tonight featuring Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, Deputy Opposition Leader Tanya Plibersek and Veep creator Armando Iannucci, among others.
  9. What Are You Watching?

    Doctor Who: Thin Ice
  10. What Are You Listening To?

    Doctor Who: Frostfire. Looking forward to comparing it with Thin Ice.
  11. Favorite Quotes

    "If by 'research' you mean 'have a bit of a Google and cherrypick what confirms your biases', that is the opposite of science. And while you're cherrypicking on the Internet, remember that science brought you the Internet. And the cherrypicker!" -Charlie Pickering
  12. Things You Find Amusing

    From tonight's Family Feud: Grant: Name an Australian celebrity known for wearing a hat. Contestant: ...Grant Denyer? For the record, no, he really isn't.
  13. Things that make you sad.

    RIP John Clarke
  14. Things You Find Amusing

    Doesn't make it less amusing that a quarter of the survey probably misread the question (I guess it's possible someone had the above points in mind). And it didn't seem like the contestant or Grant saw anything off about the answer. It's far from the first time I've seen them do that: "Name something paparazzi might hide behind." "A camera." (Since hiding behind a camera and nothing else would just make a paparazzo more visible.) "Name something that might go wrong when singing karaoke." "Forgetting the lyrics" (Though in this case Grant did point out the problem, that the lyrics are supposed to be right there on a screen.)
  15. Things You Find Amusing

    Highlight of tonight's Family Feud: Grant: Name something you might find in ancient Greece. Contestant: Ruins It was the top answer with 27, which struck me as really stupid because the buildings wouldn't be ruined yet in ancient Greece.
