  1. I coulda sworn I saw a reference to a re-screening of the original Arthur coming up. Now I can’t see it for looking! Thort it was on Go! Can you enlighten me, was I dreaming, has it passed, did I miss it?

  2. Looking forward to seeing Thor….only to see whether Home And Away’s Chris Hemsworth’s acting has improved any. He could’nt act for peanuts on Home + Away. His acting was shocking at best….totally shocking…..
