Is Gigli the film where Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck use turkey basting as some sort of weird perverted sexual term? Watching a J-Lo film is right after watch Glee on my to do list.

If you think about the Spice Girls' movie, Spice World, was kind of like a remake of A Hard Day's Night for the 90s gen. I was kind of scared of the Yellow Sub 3D yet, at the same time I wanted it to happen. a-hard-days-night-paul-4

I can't remember the plot either. I've only seen bits and pieces; however, I know its basically mockumentary style.

I have seen it, and nobody's missing very much. Though back in 1998, I would have done a criminal act for one night in bed with Baby Spice.

Pointless sequels of classics, anyone?

‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ Sequel in the Works

I'd like to say it's coming from The Onion, but no.

Paramount Studios are not happy and have threatened legal action against Hummingbird Productions (the company looking to make the sequel).

And a quote from the linked news story

Frank Capra's son, Tom, told the Associated Press that if his father was still alive, he would have deemed the sequel "ludicrous".

"Why would you even attempt to make a sequel to such a classic film?"

Windows 8.1 and other technical issues.

My son was almost in tears today as his computer had had very patchy internet and no one is taking ownership (Microsoft, the modem makers, the internet service provider).

After weeks of looking I have found that 8.1 has altered the way it handles dns - this is incompatible with the modems, which are supplied by the internet service provider.  Now they all seem to be arguing about who needs to fix what, while a support person who sounds like she is in the Philippines is telling me to try and have a pleasant evening.  She should come and tell my son why he can't connect with the world at the moment.

I know - first world problems.  Did I mention that the shiny new Samsung S4 or whatever model it is my daughter had is turning itself off randomly; a search of the net says this is also a common issue.

Windows 8 caused a lot of people problems (lack of start up button being one) which is why they released 8.1 recently trying to remedy some of the user issues. It's little surprise 8.1 is also causing folks issues but will be a major pain in the backside for those who have to endure it (especially when most call centers are useless and generally consist of the customer being passed around from department to department like a flaming bowling ball, getting next to nowhere and having to pay for it).

Having had a major falling out with BT (who insisted there was no problem on our landline and refused to do anything when there clearly was - as soon as they ran a detailed line-check 6 weeks later the problem was found) i share your pain at having to deal with customer helplines, trcanberra.

Thanks all - I hope he is more cheerful today since we at least know what is going on - now we just have to wade through the mess to get a fix.

As an aside, why can't my top of the line bluray player play the improved audio on the SACD in the George box?  I never knew such discs existed when I got it - it has a huge list of disc types it can play, but not those.

Technology - bah humbug (seasonal grouching).

Shows that tell you whats coming up at the beginning, recap 10 mins in, tell you whats coming up 12 mins in, recap whats gone on at 26 minutes, tell you whats coming next 27 minutes in, recap at 34, announce whats still to come at 35 mins, recap at 45, tell you whats coming up at 50 mins, and then recap at the end what happened.

I'm not brain-dead i am fully capable of watching a tv show without having to be constantly reminded of what has happened previously and need to be prepared to know whats about to happen before it does. Leave me alone to watch the show - PLEASE.

As bad as American TV can be, even the networks here don't go to that extreme with their shows. At least not yet- I suppose there's still time.

I've noticed that a lot, too, but I think it's so that people flicking through the channels stop and watch it. If they hear that such-and-such-who-they-like is on, they'll watch the show.

Would be nicer if they catered to those watching the show than the ones who are going to turn over every 5 minutes.

Agreed, mmm. And, even if I'm not going to get to listen to a whole show (tv or radio), I would rather them be into the analysis of a story instead of telling me what's coming up on the half-hour, etc. I just want to shout at the device and say, "I won't be able to listen on the half-hour. I only have right now to listen!" I may only have just those few moments to listen, and I want to hear something substantial.

I see the point you've made, but looking at it from the perspective of the telly company: if they can say that x million people were watching the show, they'll get more buisness' interested in paying them to put their adverts on during that programme. Say, Coca-Cola wouldn't pay the same money to advertise between re-runs of, for example, Storage Hoarders at 12.30 as they would to advertise in the breaks of the X-Factor, on at prime time on a Saturday night (or could be Friday, not sure).

But then you would have to tune in on that channel at the exact moment of announcing or recapping. Otherwise it wouldn't work

With millions of people just flicking through the channels, I think the number of people it catches would be surprising. Plus, that's why they repeat it every five minutes.
