OK, a nice lighthearted thread about what TV show you all like the best?
At the moment, I regard "House" as the best show on Aussie TV and it appears
Pacey, aka Colonel Flag from newstalkback.au likes that one too...

My favourite and only soapie is Bold and Beautiful but lately, I've gone off that one. The story lines are just not cutting it and the incestuous sex is getting a bit weird....like tell me something you American posters....do all American men sleep with their mothers, sisters, sister inlaws and all the children of the said relatives or does that just happen on B&B?

He is bloody cool, isn't he?

What a great show so far anyhow.

I didn't like him when he first came on, I didn't think he sounded like a
doctor, I didn't like his voice but now I'm used to his voice and the story lines have been interesting too....I like that he is a shithead and a very flawed character...LOL

I don't get to watch too much tv, but if I manage to catch it there's
a thing on at the moment about some tattoo artists in Miami who own
a shop. One of them has just become a first time Dad, and is still being taught
how to tattoo by one of the other men. It's like a reality thingy . . .  whatever it's called.
I like the Dog Whisperer Milan something or other is his name . . . oh and I like the American man
called Dog who catches criminals.

I'm a very boring TV watcher.

I just watch the news on EVERY channel.

We were treated today.

A great movie from 1962


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055798/

Birdman of Alcatraz



Based on a true story.

What a great man he must have been.


Ha, and remember BraIn slagging me off for putting up a picture of me from 1962 and it being black and white.

He claims all his pictures from back then are coloured.

The only pictures from that era that I am aware of, were hand coloured.....not many could afford coloured pictures back then.

That was a great movie . . . Burt Lancaster?
Was he the one with a great smile . . . I'll google him in a minute and have a look.

My three favourite movies of all time are ~

Casablanca
Wuthering Heights
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

I can watch these over and over . . .

I read the book a couple of time, "Wuthering Heights"

I also have a stage production of the musical with UK's, Cliff Richard, but never had time to watch it all the way through.

I love the fact my son got to read "Wuthering Heights" before he died....and Jane Eyre by the other sister...and Margaret Mitchell's, Gone with the Wind....Kane got to read many classics before he died.

and also he went out a bought Kate Bush's CD with her version of Wuthering Heights...a song she wrote at the age of 18.

That is unbelievably powerful that story...the second time I read it,  could actually feel the torment of Heathcliff when he threw open the window and called for Catherine's ghost to come in.......

I gives me chills thinking about it.

Yep, I am a fan of the Brontes.

If you ever get the chance, watch Wuthering Heights with Merle Oberon as Cathy
and Laurence Olivier as Heathcliff ~ superb!

Oh I agree!
I especially love these words:

Heathcliff: "Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest so long as I live on! I killed you. Haunt me, then! Haunt your murderer! I know that ghosts have wandered on the Earth. Be with me always. Take any form, drive me mad, only do not leave me in this dark alone where I cannot find you. I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul."

That-was-beautiful . . .

I will watch it.

Our ABC puts on Black and White movies in the early hours of AM time and sometimes I see them...

they had Jungle Book on the other night....and Ali Barber and 40 thieves the originals not remakes.

They also had Citizen Kane on as well, before those two movies.

Now you've got me wanting to watch it again . . .


Cathy:"Everything he's suffered, I've suffered. The little happiness he's ever known, I've had too. Oh, Ellen, if everything in the world died and Heathcliff remained, life would still be full for me."

Quite simply the best book ever written.

I live about 30 miles away from Bronte country...it's one of my favourite places to visit.

Jane Eyre was good too.

I believe they were murdered by the Irish Curator [the Brontes]....I'll look for the story about it...
