I can only speak to this one. It's totally incredible. It's wonderful.
They got it right. Terry helped with it and has a small role. I
never would have believed anybody could do as good a job.
And I haven't even seen it yet. There was a bunch of it pirated [?]
on YouTube and I watched that. I have the screenplay. My DVD will
come as soon as a certain check hits the bank and I can charge it.
[I live in the USofA; they didn't broadcast it here.] [And yes, I do
have a DVD player that plays all formats.]
Sure there's stuff missing and few changes, but it's still very, very
My only really strong casting feeling about Pratchettry in general is
that I think Sean Connery would make a truly fine Ridcully, but Joss
Ackland did just fine.
[Speaking of having a versatile DVD player: I have acquired
_Archer's Goon_, but haven't had a chance to look at it yet.
Somebody had info they had gotten from the DWJ LiveJournal
and I was finally able to follow it up a month or two ago. Hey,
Melissa! Want to come and see it sometime?]
All lives should have nine cats.
