Into The Labyrinth (1980)

I watched the first episode of this which came on a free sampler disc with Network's Children of the Stones along with episodes of Sky, The Clifton House Mystery and the utterly mind bending King of the Castle.

As a sample of what was to come it was totally enthralling. Starring Ron Moody as a being not yet fully explained and Pamela Salem who appears to be a witch, again not clear as i've only seem her face as a part of a grotesque skull rock. This is extremely well acted and the three young people who have just gone into the labyrinth are totally believable and come across more convincing than many in today's shows.

Filmed at Cheddar Caves this was brilliant television. Eerie, captivating and very much wyrd. Needless to say i've ordered the three series box set since watching the episode.

A collection of tales centred around a gentleman's club where guests come to tell a spooky story in hopes of gaining admittance. The episodes are all well written and cover ghosts, vampires, werewolves, insanity and an interesting take on the Frankenstein tale. The quality of acting is uniformly excellent and this is a series I'm happy to recommend people seek out.

I started the three episodes of the third season of True Blood last night, having seen the first two seasons (again) over the past week or so. I'm trying to watch them all in a fairly short period of time so the cliffhangers at the end of each season don't have the desired effect!

I'm also re-watching South Park from the very beginning, and am two thirds of the way through the 'Meteor Shower Trilogy' from the third season.

At some point I'll have a short break from one of them and watch the final season of Futurama I watched season six a couple of weeks ago and had forgotten how brilliant it is.

I found the final season a little disappointing myself. Very hit and miss.

I'm approaching it with a degree of trepidation, because the way the Fry-Leela arc finished (or seemingly finished) at the end of season six was perfect.

Kids tv from back then wouldn't be on CBBC nowadays. In fact it wouldn't be made at all because it's far too challenging, involving and not dumbed down for today's audiences.

Indeed. Though I have a soft spot for Pet Squad

That the kids in ITL are really rounded characters was the first thing I noticed....
