Like most people I create my own bubble of information. Some gets in, some doesn't.
I saw on the News that a lost series of Dr. Who has been recreated in animation. Since the original audio exists it will be presented with that, although I don't know where.
Is this a big deal for Dr. Who fans?
I saw most of House II for the first time last night on You Tube. Not a patch on the original House with lead character Roger Cobb, Sean Cunningham went for laughs with House II.
Having re-watched the original I noticed some Aurora models in Cobb Junior's bedroom. A sure sign of a late Seventies American setting, for that authentic look Aurora monsters were and are essential props. Just think of Super 8!
Do you like House?
Bill tells me that Thunderbirds is back on the telly! Where? This one has really missed by bubble and I must say I haven't seen any mention of it anywhere in the media.
Are you watching Thunderbirds?
The must-see movie of the Christmas season will surely be Star Wars Rogue One. I think it's released here in the UK on December 16th. Not sure about anywhere else. I still haven't seen the new trailer yet, although I hear great things about it. Is it really only a year ago since the last new film!
Will you be going to see Rogue one?
Robert Vaughn died last week. His most famous role was Napolean Solo, the suave secret agent in the cult US TV series from the 1960's, The Man From Uncle. I also vividly recall his convincing portrayal of a gunslinger in the epic Magnificent Seven.
Alas Mr. Vaughn's passing is both sad and poignant as he was yet another icon of our childhood now lost. I still have my Marx 1966 UNCLE Counter Spy Kit as I'm sure many of you have collectables from the show. In this way his presence will still be felt.
What's your fave Robert Vaughn memory or collectable?
RIP Napolean Solo. We will miss you.
Till next time, same channel.
