The Crimson Petal and the White on iplayer.

How I love that book!

Just check out the colours on the TV production-they're sumptuous.

I'm currently going through the original series of the Twilight Zone. I'd never seen these before and they are really very good! Much much better than I thought they might be. Recommended viewing.

Old episodes of the Bill (they're on a permanent run in my viewing) - around 1992 era.

Just tonight I've started the Professionals again. Man, what a great show! The cars, the clothes, the biffo. What more could one want?


i really must get the professionals on dvd...i bloody love it

The only problem with the DVD version is they've not only mixed up the episode order, they've mixed up the series too. Had to go through the titles and write down which one belong to what season and in what order (okay maybe that's a bit sad)

This is the show where at one convention when we couldn't sleep me and my sister named every episode by memory, and with my memory, that ain't easy.

The professional guide (book) they brought out - they got most of that wrote too, wrote to the publishers told them how to relable their pictures so they were right, gave them the correct cast list and explained their errors in plot description. Terrible book!

Well, in this case, I'm blissful in Professionals ignorance as I only know the show through the DVDs. Also, the episodes don't foloow from one to the next, there are no stort arcs, one can watch them in any order.

The complete set goes for a discounted price fairly regularly (well, it used to) so check your usual online dvd outlets for a good deal. It's well worth it!

Yep, you can totally watch them in any order, and I often do. It would just be nice if the people that produce the DVDs actually kept the same season on the same disk.

Same as with Tour of Duty - when they came out on DVD the music had been completely changed

I've treated myself to The Planet of the Apes TV Series boxset - and Im presently on disc two

I've not seen this series in years, yet can clearly remember the episodes Yes Smiley The last time I saw these was at a friends house in Southport! I was house/cat minding whilst they went on holiday, so I was able to watch my mates VHS TV tape collection Yes Smiley

Not so sure the cat was a fan, well, she never expressed much of an interest in TVSF anyway.

Personally, I quite like 'The Trap' (and any other episode with a ruined city in it, they did those very well) and 'The Good Seeds'.

The Trap - that's the one where Alan and Urko get trapped in the underground after an Earthquake right? And they have to work together to get out - very interesting, esp when Urko finds the circus/zoo poster

The Good Seed - the one where they teach the farmers to plant the best seed and where Alan delivers a cow.

I must try some fan fiction for this series.

Thats true, she only showed interest in her bowl when it was time for feeding.

I cant see this in work Will this be at the Hyde Fundraiser's event at the end of May! Cause I've noticed they will be having 'an ape soldier' on hand

That rifle looks really impressive Kev - dunno why Im surprised at that!

Any chance of a few pictures on the forum of your B7 cabinet display whist there Kev - and I'll donate 5 towards the Hyde fundraiser's event

NB Have either of you ever seen the Planet of the Apes episode that was never aired during its original run!! I couldn't believe it, when i saw what it was called
