Mission

Interesting one here. A short film (twenty minutes), posted on the net by its creator. Legal films on the internet?! Whatever next! It's about a boy whose father yearns to be an astronaut, and it stars Siobhan Redmond (Between The Lines, The High Life, Bulman) and Emun Elliott (Paradox, The Paradise, Los Malvados (cough)). It's odd, but in a good way.

In other news, I watched the pilot of Starsky & Hutch, possibly for the first time. It's strange watching it, as it's basically all the bits from the opening credits, strung together with a bit of plot. And the wrong music. And the wrong Captain Dobie. And Starsky's hair is much too short. Pilots are weird that way. Nothing could be quite so weird as the Bonanza pilot, but it's always odd watching a familiar series testing itself out. Like The A-Team, when Face has the wrong head, or Kojak, which doesn't have Crocker in it, or Babylon 5, where everything looks like it's made out of cardboard, and G'Kar is a completely different shape.

In other other news, it's wet. And cold. Make it stop being wet and cold please. Thank you.

The pilot of Starsky & Hutch is definitely strange. I've never watched it since the first time, tbh.

Yes, it's like they don't know who they are yet - except for Huggy, who's got himself all figured out. Pilots can be very odd that way.

Yeah, that's what's so odd about it. I love that Huggy was the same from the start.

My window has looked like your icon for three days. I think that's enough rain now, thank you!

It's good weather for reading, though! ;-)

Nope. It's wonderful. Less wet would be fine, though. You can have less wet, but the cold is marvellous. ;-p

We need an individual weather system, so I can have it nice and hot, and you can have it cool, and neither one of us will disturb anybody else. Make it happen, somebody.

Well, since you live somewhere in the Cotswolds and I live on the North East coast, we pretty much do, really. ;-)

Aren't Starsky's nose and twinkle the crucial aspects though? I wouldn't think of Paul Michael Glaser's hair as being absolutely characteristic.

I've got a little bit of sunshine, which is fine as long as it doesn't swelter.

Ah, see, you've fallen into the trap of thinking that Starsky is best. You're wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. :p His hair is sort of important though. He's supposed to be curly, not with a prison buzz cut.

It started raining here sometime Saturday night, and has barely let up since. *grumble*

You know how to get one viewer;) I will digest later - I'd best not watch too many flicky images on the computer today, just in case.

Yes, I agree. Why can't the weather ever be just right?

Oops, sorry. I should have thought, and posted it tomorrow instead. Definitely not a good idea to be watching much on the computer today, no! SR is mostly in the second half, but I suppose you need the whole thing to know what's happening.

The weather was just right over the summer! Nice and hot. :)

Today isn't much better either - I saw a glittery notebook and it was why are they manufacturing things that cause so much pain to my eyes! But tortoise-like I always catch up in the end:)

I watched it! Thanks for sharing:) Felt sorry for the kid - where did he get all the money for food from? The ending suggested everything happens for a reason I thought.

The father gave the kid his PIN, so I guess the kid was getting money that way. They must have had plenty in the bank account!
