Unseen Academicals

Also Sean Bean as Vimes? Impossible, Vimes doesn't die...

There was talk about a City Watch series however.

No, I meant that wasn't Guards the next film made after Colo(u)r was. I guess my imagination wandered off on its own there.

Unseen Academicals


Well blast. Now I'm two behind on the live action stuff.

Oh, no, Going Postal, and I really liked it. Well especially Spike (though she wasn't called that once in the show)

I watched episode one of going postal last night with a friend. 

My copy is blu ray and it is quite weird what scenes look GREAT and what ones look ok, and I don’t know what the reason for that was.  Spike looked gorgeous through the whole thing though. 

It’s an excellent adaptation and it was pure joy for me to watch, that joy was enhanced thoroughly by having my friend there who knows nothing of Discoworld.  He loved it and I think he is quite interested in disc world now.  We plan on watching the second part tonight.

What does the Book Club cover look like for this one? I pre-ordered the Amazon one a month of so ago along with Ann's birthday present. :)

I am about half way through it.  I am enjoying it a lot, but it is surprising how much this one refers back to others.

the Hogfather TV movie introduced me to Discworld and i pick up a book every now and then, it's one of the few series that makes me laugh out loud.

I've been hearing about these books for a while but haven't read any, just watched one of the TV movies (The Colour of Magic) on netflix, plan on watching Hogfather tomorrow night.

Looks like they are between $5 and $8 each for the kindle.  Been looking for a new series to start, this might be it.

Which raises an interesting question: Where do the uninitiated start with the Discworld books? Opinions vary.

I know that for ages people used to say read them in order but start with Mort.

The very first one I read was Witches Abroad mostly because Nanny sort of looked like my maternal grandmother on the cover I think.
