    Negative. I was interested in seeing it at first, but, the more I saw and read, the less interested I became. From what I've read, they've tried to fuse the historical Vlad III Dracula, Voivode of...
  2. Re: Star Wars: Tarkin -- New Novel by James Luceno -- Released 4 November 2014

    Well, early on in the development of the first film, the Emperor was called "Cos Dashit"--George Lucas's brilliant wit never ceases to amaze!--so, theoretically, it was "Cos," at least for a while....

    Nodded off in the middle of Doctor Who, Series 8, episode 3, which I think was..."The Robot of Sherwood"? Something like that.
