  2. and with that, he disappears again into the night....
  3. hmmm, must admit I am bit reluctant to get into Heroes, as it does seem quite similar to Lost and I invested a whole load of hours into that, which just turned out to be a big waste of time (as I realised towards the start of the third season). Having said that I've recently polished off Sopranos, The Wire and Six Feet Under final boxsets so there is room in my viewing for a new US series, maybe Hereos will fit the bill.
  4. Well I thought the look of it was dark, claustrophbic, depressing, and also quite intimidating... exactly how I imagine Poland was in the 30's/40's....
  5. I thought it was engrossing, moving and told a really important story. Anyone thinking of investing in it should ignore the comments above!
  6. I'd like to say Million Little Pieces but as I read it in June last year I think that would be pushing it! So I will go for: Strange & Norrell Cloud Atlas The best book I read this year but not published this year was Ian McEwan's Atonement.
  7. Hazel, agree with you re MLP, there were certain passages where I felt like I'd been punched in the stomach after reading them, they were that powerful.
  8. I just got 100% on the English test. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4246472.stm
  9. Yes it was Clare, but it was too dark to see if she'd had the baby or not......
  10. I just had a thought about last night's Lost (Clearly I am very busy at work). In Walt's back-story we saw him looking at a picture of a bird in a book, one of which then flew into his living room window. It was intimated that this was a result of some kind of 'power'. And now, on the island, he is looking at a polar bear in a comic, and one turns up in the forest. So is Walt somehow unwittingly summoning the polar bear? (I can't think of any the reason why one would be on desert island). And now that the comic has been burnt, is that the last we'll see of it? Thoughts?
  11. I had the misfortune to watch Wimbledon on a recent plane journey, I think it was the worst film I have ever seen. It's basically the same story as Notting Hill (which was pretty awful itself) but with NO JOKES.
  12. Dammit I hate it when people make me back up my wild claims with proof! Ok I'll have a search when I've got five minutes.
  13. Its astonishing how many threads on here end up being about how people arrange their CDs!
  14. It's true, seriously. The really weird thing is that I am also a bonds trader, and live in New York.
