A lazy code monkey speaks...

Hmm, my last post about Goodnight, Sweetheart seems to have upset Firefox in some way - or at least it doesn't display properly in FF 1.5 (although it's fine in IE6). I could be industrious and hunt down the errant line of code, but I thought I'd settle for lazy and just post this pointless post in the hope that that'll solve the problem.

If it still looks odd can you let me know?

I finally watched the first bit of Survivors, and was very pleased. It didn't feel like a Terry Nation project in the least.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Glad you liked it - although if you thought this episode didn't seem like a Nation script, you should definitely try the second series after Nation had left and Terrance Dudley (of Doomwatch fame) was the main man.

Was that "The Fourth Horseman"? Nation's vision of this possible future is a harsher one than Dudley's, don't you think? Nation was still as obsessed with Nazis in "Survivors" as he was in almost everything else he wrote, understandably having lived through WWII.

Oh, I couldn't agree more - and I thought the Nation approach was the better way to go for Survivors. There's not a bad episode in series 1, but series 2 has several more patchy efforts, culminating in the sheer awfulness of 'The Witch' - and series 3 is a chore to get through, tbh.

Dudley's preference for long stretches of info dumping regarding agrarian famring methods and the correct use of methane in series two leads to the community of the week approach in series three and, IMO, almost ruins the latter part of the series.

Of course, to get an idea of how Nation would have progressed things, his Survivors novel makes the ending of Blake's 7 seem overly chirpy :-)
