    Hogfather!

    I don't know how many of you are Terry Pratchett fans but the latest news is that the Hogfather is being brought to TV in the UK. Now, I'm eagerly awaiting the torrent & counting down to it going to DVD.

    If anyone else is interested some info sites are:
    Sky One
    Brightcove - Video Search

    So speak up if you live in the UK and intend to watch this so the rest of us can envy you (or even if you're just a fan).

    yeah.... don't start with "The Color of Magic" or you might never get to the good stuff. Not saying it's bad, it's just the writting style changes after the first two books.

    That's not fair. Why not Malaysia as well?
    And to think that I've been faithfully buying every book from the Discworld series...

    Well, I don't wish to sound proud, but yeah... it was on a few days ago... Sunday and Monday, in fact. Both at 8pm... Very funny...

    Set on Discworld, Terry Pratchett's Hogfather novel is brought to life. Deranged Assassin Mr Teatime (with a bunch of thieves and a failed apprentice wizard) wants to "inhumme" the Hogfather (Discworld's equivalent of Santa Claus) by destroying children's belief in him. By kidnapping and holding hostage the tooth fairy in order to use children's teeth to control their belief. The only being that can take his place? Death, a depressant anthopomorphic personification, too caught up with humanity for his own good. Assisted by his foul servant Albert and his half-human (beacause some talents, like walking through walls or freezing time, are inherited "in the bone" rather than genetically), adoptive granddaughter Susan.

    That's pretty much the whole thing... David Jason, Michelle Dockery Marc Warren and Ian Richardson make it what it is... Incredibly funny.
