It’s quite a horrifying thought that Angel now technically qualifies as ‘Classic TV’. How did that happen? It feels like it was only on about 10 years ago, but it’s actually now 20 years old.
Anyway, to celebrate this momentous date, Entertainment Weekly reunited almost all the surviving cast members – yes, David Boreanaz turned up but Vincent Kartheiser and the lawyers at Wolfram and Hart seem to have been busy – to chat with co-creator David Greenwalt about the making of the show.
Interesting fact – episode two was apparently so dark that the network panicked and the producers shut down production of the show to try to make it a tad lighter.
Crikey, as I always say, shortly after posting an image that was considered high resolution in 2005. How did that happen? Time has flown again, since The Medium Is Not Enough emerged blinking into the world a stupefying 14 years ago, primed to make sarcastic comments about UK and foreign TV, mainly from the US, mainly in languages I can speak, with reviews of Prison Break, Supernatural, and Global Frequency.
This year in review
This year, we’ve had to wave goodbye to Weekly Wonder Woman, on the general grounds that DC doesn’t really seem to like her any more and the comics are all rubbish now. Sigh.
However, we’ve also welcomed Orange Wednesdays/Thursdays for movie reviews – no trademark infringement lawsuits yet, thankfully – and added in coverage of Royal Television Society events. TMINE’s also got itself an Italian TV category, seeing as some of it’s actually quite watchable now.
As always, a great big thank you to all the regular TMINE commenters: Mark Carroll, JustStark, bob, Craig Grannell, idleworm, Adam Bowie and MasterWitcher088. Bless your hearts!
Thank yous as well to the commenters on the TMINE Facebook page, particularly Rob Kerr, Lee Carter, Craig Grannell, Mark Clapham, Dave Beattie, George Parkes, Jane Parkes, Jason DC Williams, Toby O’Brien and Paul Tricker.
But thank yous to anyone who’s left even one comment this year, either here or on Facebook – it’s been great to hear from you!
Same time next year everyone? I say that every year, don’t I? Anyway, there’ll be cake, albeit the same photo of a cake as last year, so bring your friends.
Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
Look at me, coming up with a punchy new title for this feature after only a mere two and a half years of running it. How genius am I? That’s almost better than my plan for carrying hot drinks around in a basket that I implemented this morning.
It’s all premiere dates this week, so let’s get right down to it.
