"Midnight": Absolutely brilliant!

For once this gets a 5/5 for me. It was absolutely excellent , a brilliantly scripted depiction of the pack mentality in action . Those people, when faced with a crisis, mostly acted dreadfully and very true to life. I like the way that even some of the more thoughtful ones like Jethro & David Troughton's character turned selfish and followed the crowd eventually. It was better that we didn't learn much about the alien. This was brilliant writing from RTD - more like this earlier would have been welcome. Loved it.

Pity you've spent the last four years proving you couldn't do anything as good if your life depended on it, then, isn't it?

You must have seen the latest flight of fancy from Sparacus. In the DWF's K9 Tales thread, where everyone's wondering about what the "bonus item" will be that everyone who sends their faulty Invisible Enemy disc back will get, Spara is hoping for... wait for it, either a free Torchwood Season 2 set or a free Brain Of Morbius DVD.

Dream on, pal. Get a fecking grip. I'm worried about the kids being taught by this clown.

Youth of Australia said...

What? No chance. Maybe a copy of K9 Unleashed at best. How much would a boxset cost? How much did K9 Tales cost?

Wake up, you bloody nutter...

Leonard Hatred said...

Well, I paid £15 for K9 Tales. Assuming Spara did the same, that means he's expecting to receive either a £40 box-set (Torchwood) or a £13 DVD (Morbius) totally GRATIS along with his replacement Invisible Enemy disc worth £7.50.

I'm sure he says these things publicly because he gets off on the ridicule somehow...

Youth of Australia said...

Yes, well, it's more endearing than certain yellow sticky fluids I could mention...

Leonard Hatred said...

When's the full Season 4 poll coming, Spara, me old goat?...

Youth of Australia said...

Yeah, that's what I love about this plot. It's right here, right now, up-to-the-minute, on-the-pulse and riding the cultural zietgiest!

Just, you know, hasn't been updated for a month. Still, the blogger in question hasn't been updated since 1973...

Spara, you're a lazy bastard.

Lucky old CSFC!

Lucky old what?!

Don't mention the CSFC. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it... ;-)

*snorts awake*
Huh? Whu? Wazzat?

Dear God, you think Spara would actually bother to update this blog in the wake of LoverofBenChathamgate. LBCgate, geddit? Oh, please yourself.

*slumps unconscious once more.*

Leonard Hatred said...

LBCgate? I'm intrigued, pray tell...

Youth of Australia said...

Yeah, well, that's the price paid for throwing yourself out of the loop, LH. Meantime, my life has taken a distinctive turn of the worse, so I'm throwing the towel in and getting out. I'll let this blog gather dust and help fight the internet war on BC...

IGNORING HIM IS STRENGTH!
