I can now reveal that this was not an April Fool. I purchased a Radio Times magazine/TV guide for the week ahead and it came with a FREE scratch and sniff card which offers the following delicate olfactory delights:
1. Sewage Sludge.
2.18th Century Tannery
3.Marie Antoinette's perfume
4.Pong de Paris????

We now have the first series in the UK. Just watched the first episode...very good.

Is that a reference to the hats in Walking Dead?

No.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

So far I'm quite happy with Game of Thrones

Same. It's interesting. I was never that into the books. I got bored and wandered off towards the end of Game of Thrones. I might get into it more as a TV show.

My parents started watching it, so I got caught up this weekend on it. I usually try to read a series before watching the movie or TV series, but in all likelihood I'm not going to get around to reading this one any time soon, and even if I do, I know enough to expect some differences.

And really, watching film adaptations of fantasy novels is a great way to explore the genre, I think. I mean, it has to be done well, of course, but watching rather than reading can be even more immersive, in some ways. Of course, I'm a movie buff who should probably read more than he does, so maybe I'm biased. :idiot:

It wasn't Space Pirates or Pirate Planet, but at least he isn't wearing an eye patch now.

Although eye patches are cool.

Let me just add that it is not easy to get a pirate hat over all that hair.

The first episode of 'The Shadow Line' was really good.

Hated the Big Bang Theory finale, loved the Bones' finale.
