Finished The Six Wives of Henry VIII. Slow starter but gets better as it keeps going. Wanted to hit Thomas Seymour with something. And now back to The Tudors...

Watched "Robin Hood" (Crowe version) last night, it was OK but took a long time to tell it's story - the final battle was good although I see what folks mean about the landing craft, way too modern-looking.

Then fancied something easy to watch and easy on the eye, so stuck "New Moon" in the DVD player.

Unfortunately I'm not a fan of Angelina either. Maybe I lack a vital organ :p

I watched Avatar. It had cool special effects and all but I don't know. I don't know why it had so many Oscar nominations.

We watched Throw Momma from the Train (Danny DeVito and Billy Crystal). Some good laughs but it seemed better when I first viewed it over 20 years ago :eek:
I couldn't figure out where I had seen the (youngish) actress Kate Mulgrew before and had to check out the IMDB site,and of course it was in the Star Trek series(when she was older) where she played the role of the commander of the Voyager.

@BrianPK: welcome to the forum. I've not seen your posts before. It's great to have another Irishman on board!

Just finished the first series of HBO's In Treatment, which stars Gabriel Byrne (Irish!) as a psychotherapist with troubles of his own. It's fantastic, IMHO. Now I have to wait until October, when series two becomes available on DVD here in the UK :(

In Treatment is "must see TV" in our household! We just finished the third season and hoping they make a fourth. Gabriel Byrne has always been a favorite of mine.

Green eyed monster, Faith! I don't want to wait until October for series two, never mind hear that you've seen series three. Argh!

Gabriel Byrne is great, isn't he? He was wonderful all the way back in '87, in the Coen Brothers' masterpiece, [I]Miller's Crossing
