The weekend - delta_november

It's been an interesting couple days.  I've been working far too hard the past few weeks, and not getting enough sleep.  Everybody seems to need something from me urgently.  On Saturday it all caught up with me and I just fell apart for a few hours.  Which, of course, left more work for me to do today.  One of these years I'll figure out what this is all for.

Today did have one gleam of sunshine.  On a whim I rented Red Dwarf : Back To Earth, The Director's Cut.  This is a 2009 Red Dwarf special, running about 70 minutes.  It's shot in gorgeous HD (and the actors certainly do look 20 years older...), and the quality is on par with the old episodes.  I recommend it.

Before watching make sure you are familiar with Bladerunner.  Many of the scenes are recreated. ("Noses.  I only do noses.  So very cold...").  A familiarity with Coronation Street will also help.

I occasionally wonder how many references to Coronation Street are dropped that fly right over my head when watching things like QI or plumbing the depths of the Just A Minute archive.... and you know, I don't think it would be worth the required experience to find out. :p
