    Dunno how long Pushing Daisies can last. It's such a stylized show I wonder if they can keep mood going over the long haul. I do like it a lot, but I have my doubts. One thing I'd like to see is a remake of Neil Gaimen's Neverwhere. The Brits gave it a really good mini-series production and I'd like to see how us colonials could do with it. (Hopefully we've learned our how not to do it lesson from the awful US effort with The Hitchhiker's Guide.)
    no boom today . . .

      The only good thing to come from the truly dreadful H2G2 film was the money to finish the Radio series.

      Though the Dirk Gently one currently playing on Radio 4 isn't very good.

      It sounds like someone has hit the 'play random scene' button and for me, Harry Enfield just doesn't fit the role (I always imagined him as being like a young Peter Cook).

      I don't know if this link works outside the UK.

      But (perfectly legally) here is the listen again link for those who are interested.

        If any team can keep that mood going, it's that one. The writers are good ones, the cast (and the characters) balance off each other great... It should work. Guess we'll see next week.

        On the pure survival end, it beat Deal or No Deal fairly well, and that's the only other worthy competition at that hour (Fox Comedies don't count, neither does child exploitation). And again.... we'll see next week how it keeps it going.

        I can't remember the last time the major networks came out with a great mini. They've abandoned them for years, mostly because they were horrible at it for further years. SciFi did a few mildly decent ones recently then it too went downhill.

        I'll take the book and leave it at that.

          It does work outside the UK and thanks for posting the link. I was waiting on this airing but I hadn't realised that it was last week. Dang. I haven't heard it yet but was hoping it would be good as they seemed to do a good job on the last 3 HG2G shows.

          Did you ever see the edition of the South Bank Show where Ford, Arthur and Dirk appeared on a show about Douglas Adams? The Dirk there seemed good (though I cannot remember the actors name for the life of me) at the part. I never pictured anyone for the role, I suppose in my minds eye I simply see Douglas Adams playing the part.

          Got to agree with you on HG2G the movie was appalling apart from the opening musical number. They changed to much and most of the delivery was flat (like for instance the rather famous pub scene) and not engaging.

          If the Red Dwarf movie ever happens, I hope to hell a) everyone is on board and b) that it is rock solid, otherwise I hope they will leave well enough alone.

            If you liked that you may enjoy this to :

            http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7/listenagai.../rams/1200.ram

            It's an adaptation of Peter Ackroyd's wonderfully creepy "The House of Doctor Dee" with "Life On Mars" star Philip Glenister.
