This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Now you know the sort of prices we have to put up with in the UK! That Lost stuff here is the same as yours - just with a £ sign put in front. IE, double the actual price you pay.
Plainly that's because, unlike ours, yours is an imaginary currency.

Little-known fact: Did you know that in England, you can cross a price out with a permanent marker and write in the price that you want to pay?  Because it's made-up money. Totally true.

!i!

Great episode. I saw the finale a couple of weeks ago, and it's a bit of a disappointment from the HUGE cliffhanger, but still a very worthwhile and excellent episode.

I'm a Doctor Who fan from way back, so seeing old you-know-who as the villain again was, well, amazing.

Stolen Earth and Journey's End were okay. There were bits I really liked (the TARDIS flight at the end, for example), but one the whole, I felt a bit let down. It had a lot of potential, but...And I don't like the resolution with you know who.

But I'll see how I feel after a second viewing.

I think that Journey's end is MUCH better after a second viewing.

Well, I'll be getting series four for the Moffat episodes and Midnight, so I'll watch it again at least once. It's not that I dislike it per se - 'cause there's a lot in there for love - but...eh. It feels more like a miss than a hit.

I had that same feeling the first time around. I don't know. It just kind of didn't work for me. But when I watched it again, I really started to enjoy it. :huhsign:

Hey Guys? You don't have to dance around mentioning stuff from next week's American showing. I read ahead and the wikipedia entries for the show -SO I know the gist of what happens and the big secrets and all that stuff.


Do they ever release CDs of the show's music??

 I thought the dramatic music in the middle of the episode rocked out and I'd love to a CD of that. (We're talking about the montage where TORCHWOOD anmd Sarah Jane are putting the Harriet Jones plan into action....relly percussive music was used to back that sequence)

Thinking about it, I enjoyed it. I mentioned the TARDIS flight near the end - I've been a Who fan since 1980 or so and when I realized what was happening, I had me a geekgasm. So, emotionally, I definitely enjoyed it.

I'm such a dork. :D

The part that blew me away was reading the ratings report on Wiki that said the finale got like 45% of the viewing audience in Britain.  I'm sure the TV viewing landscape in the UK is a bit different than here, but I can't imagine a show pulling those kinds of ratings in the US, any show.
