Setting 2428D

I have new shinies! My DVD player/ VHS player/ DVD recorder/ Freeview box/ hard drive is awesome. One of these snazzy "plug it in and it'll go off and set itself up" things, which is nice. Thought I had audio problems, but it turned out that the SCART cable had come loose, doh.

I'm watching The Doctor Dances - it happened to be on, and what better show and episode to christen the new box? More or less every line is a classic. We're just getting to "Rose, I'm trying to resonate concrete." Also (to go randomly work-related) the subtitles are damn good for a digital box. They're more or less hitting shot changes and everything.

Got my Wii, too, but haven't set it up properly yet. I've spent most of the day (well, since I got up, which was stupid-late) tidying, and getting rid of the piles of crap that were growing around my TV. So, yeah, now I have far too many entertainment options. I've started watching Battlestar again, only got three more eps to go in the first series...

"That's what we do when we get out there? That's our mission? We seek new life and...?" "Dance."

It suddenly seems highly appropriate that the new box is a panaSONIC. Bwah.

That shiny looks exactly like what I'm after. Where did you get it from ?

I got it from Dixon's, oddly enough - they were the cheapest place online, AND I get cashback from them via quidco. They've got a terrible rep for customer service, but everything went fine for me...

Argh, spoke too soon, downloadables are only going to be available for the Wii from GH4 onwards. Dammit.

The Doctor Dances is one of the reasons I love Who. It is a perfect arc. <3

I'd been thinking season 4 was nearly-as-good as season 1, but looking at that...maybe not. It was just way better than 2 and 3 :D
