  1. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0289830/

    Plot Summary:

    Taken spans five decades and four generations, centering on three families: the Keys, Crawfords, and Clarkes. World War II veteran Russell Keys is plagued by nightmares of his abduction by aliens during the war; the Roswell incident transforms Owen Crawford from ambitious Air Force captain to evil shadow government conspirator; the unhappily married Sally Clarke is impregnated by an alien visitor. As the decades go by, the heirs of each are affected by the machinations of the aliens, culminating with the birth of Allie Keys, who is the final product of the aliens' experimentation and holds the key to their future.

    Sci-Fi are repeating this brilliant series on Sunday's at 9M. They will be showing the 2nd episode this Sunday (12/02/05) and I recommend everyone watches it. You don't need to have watched the first episode to understand the storyline either, when it first came out I missed nearly all of the first episodes but it didn't matter as the story still made sense even though I had missed many episodes.

    You know it's good, if I recommended it.

  2. I'm not even bothering this week. I guess it was just another filler episode right? God, I hope Season 6 is going to be the last one.

    Yeah, I was talking about Lionel knowing.

    Season 5, the one we're on now is the last Smallville season. The 14th episode was shit, the possesed story lines all suck.

  3. I don't see how they can stretch it out for 2 series to be honest.  I've just seen episode 10 and they've only got 10 days left until his execution.  The only way they could do it would be to give him a stay of execution or whatever it's called, but that would be an utterly crap thing to do.

    State break perhaps?

  4. What the hell... has happened to Courtney Cox's boobs?

    I know, she's actually got a pair.

    I decided to rent this on Friday, and I thought it was pretty funny, it's not going to win any awards but its a very enjoyable movie and pretty damn funny. And far far better then Mean Machine, which sucked major balls.

    I didn't realise how many famous people were in this movie, tonnes of wrestlers, Monica from friends, and ROB SCHNEIDER! A true A* cast...

  5. I'm up to the police man and giant mouse levels now after finally beating the fat egyptian woman. Over The Distance really is a great level, I'd been wanting to see what all the fuss was about, and I wasn't dissapointed. I've been getting rank C's mostly, one B and the odd D, I just don't understand how people can have so many S ranks when I don't even have one yet! Does anyone know what are the boundaries for each rank btw?

    The game is so addictive, but makes me fucking mad at times, One Night Carnival and the Fat Egyptian woman have me ready to snap my stylus.

  6. I watched the latest episode just over an hour ago, and I was dissapointed with it, it could have been done so much better, those first 5 minutes or so should have shown way more of Clark's powers, I mean jumping, why not show all of them and explain a bit about them? And the first reality, I felt would have been a better reality to have stuck with.

  7. Well after seeing the first 13 episodes a few weeks back, (the 14th episode is back on March 20th, such an annoying wait) I strongly urge everyone to watch this, its a great show and moves faster then Lost, while still creating a lot of tension.

  8. The Wolf Man used to my favourite, I always loved the entire of the last event (the zip line and arm pedal monkey bar things were personal favourites) and would have loved a chance to attempt it. I remember Gladiators being replaced by something like Gladiators on Ice or some rubbish. And they also got rid of The Crystal Maze, I used to love that show when I was younger.

  9. Forget your friends. For the girls - start with Nintendogs to reel them in then switch to this....BAM!


    Never bought Nintendogs, not missing much am I? Heard it gets dull quite quickly. But I agree, it's the DS's best game for getting people who don't like consoles (or just Nintendo consoles) to try the DS.

  10. Finally managed to beat that Horse level on normal (yes, I know I suck at the game) but the headphones really helped make the game easier, and I noticed sounds that weren't loud enough without them on, think I'll stick to using headphones with this, seems to really benefit it. Even thought I'm terrible at the game, I still find normal more fun then easy, I prefer the challenege and the sound is in tune with the circles due to the speed being faster.

    Also, I'm bringing my DS in to school with me on Friday, I know Ouendan has wireless play, but do you need 2 carts for it and is it just co-op, or can you play against each other? Hopefully the people with the DS's should also have MKDS with them allowing for multiplayer restriction free MKDS. Looking forward to it.

    I'm curious to see what my friends (of which mostly consist of people who hate Nintendo with no justifiable reason for doing so) think of Ouendan, its a strange game to people who are used to just playing FIFA 200X and the GTA series. Although I believe Trauma Center may be more popular with my Nintendo DS hating friends.

  11. I've only seen episode 1, but I thought it was a damn good show, reminds me of Shawshank Redemption and Lost which is no bad thing. Can't wait to watch the later episodes, just wish my downloads would pick up some speed.

  12. OT I know but fuck me how much better is VLC than QT at actually playing QT HD content without stutter o vision.


    100% agree with you. I thought my computer wasn't good enough to play 720P content because the first time I saw a 720P trailer was on Quicktime, it kept freezing and wasn't smooth, however when I opened it in VLC and it worked perfectly. Just goes to show how good VLC is, or how bad Quicktime is.

  13. Guys, if you want to get up to speed with the people watching Lost Season 2, there is a torrent going round (PM me if you can't find it) with all the current episodes in one file. It's just over 3GB in size so on a 2MB connection it'd take roughly 3 and quarter hours to download. Use Bit Comet to download it in, very easy to use.

    The other option (besides waiting) is to search on eBay for them and get them on a disc that will be region free and work on any DVD player, I did that for Lost season 1, money well spent, was able to watch it on a 32" widescreen TV with surround sound instead of my 17" 4:3 monitor.

  14. I've never beaten a Zelda game, after Burnout 2 corrupted my game saves, I just couldn't be arsed to replay Wind Waker + Bonus Collection. With LTAP I got up to either the last or 2nd to last dungeon and just never bothered to go back to it. With OoT and MM on the 64, I just got stuck somewhere and left it for another game.

    It took me about 6 months (with about a 4 month gap) to complete Viewtiful Joe (only on Kids mode), once you beat Fire Lord Leo, the game becomes so much easier.

  15. I got this for Christmas and I think I'm doing the easiest difficulty, completed 3 missions so far (man wanting quiet, girl with crush on her boss/teacher? And a Horse stopping a robbber) and I feel like I'm not improving at this, still as crap as the first time I tried the game out, and my stupid hands get in the way of the screen. I've gotten 'D' ranks on every mission so far.

    It's a fun game, but I'm struggling to make any progress now, even on easy. Loving the music on this.

  16. It was on the gadget show.

    I remember that episode, the man said he would choose to get his 5 year old daughter a PSP over a DS because it was more then a games console, which is a fair enough reason, but I sure as hell wouldn't trust a 5 year old with a PSP, it'd be ruined in days.
