As best I can remember it included talk of:
Doctor Who, Season 18, State of Decay. I thought the plot was too much of a rehash of the old Sevateem idea (which was a good idea in itself), the acting was particularly bad, especially in the main cast (K9 excepted), and the Doctor's strategy for overcoming the resident evil (whose very name I've forgotten) looked awfully haphazard - the writers missed an opportunity for Adric to do ultra-high maths with K9, to ensure accuracy of execution. As it was, Adric was looking more like a liability than an alert and useful companion. I'd feel sorry for the Doctor, except he was a bit annoying, too.
Shakespeare. I'm gradually dragging the words out of my brain for the Stageoffools exchange, though with (of course) many qualms that this isn't what my recipient wants. But I'll finish a first draft and then think again.
Tam Cam, the Untold Story - which was a movie based on a Vietnamese fairy-tale with lots of similarities to Cinderella. (Tam is the "Cinderella"; Cam is the "Ugly Stepsister"). The untold part of the story included lots of fighting - the one-on-one martial arts kind, and the big CGI battles kind - and not one, but two CGI monsters - the bad scorpionesque one and the good leonine one. What startled me most was the final, mid-credits scene of Tam and her wicked stepmother - Tam bringing to the stepmother a brimming bowl of some mixed stew, and saying "Eat, mother." I thought - "oh - noble Tam - even after all the cruelty and wrong she's suffered, she displays filial piety to her father's wife." But it wasn't that at all. Oh dear.
Pulses: this weekend just gone - the good old standby Chilli Beans, with red kidney beans, tomato and chilli and much else.
