    In the UK, you have to pay a yearly fee to watch live TV. It goes to the BBC, which is why there are no adverts on any of their channels. But you have to have one in order to watch anything on TV. Note how I said live TV. You can watch catch up TV without needing a TV license. This is how Chris saves money by not needing to buy a TV license.

    But, weirdly, you need one in order to use game consoles. Strange, I know, but hey.

    It's interesting, though, since they're calling for the BBC to tell everyone what they spend that money on. It's about Ł150 per the majority of households across the UK. It would be very interesting to see what it reveals.

    Enough with the British TV talk, watching Code Geass from the internet made me happy today, I was actually able to grasp some of the plot and got why one of my friends recommended it to me!

    Discovering a new TV/movie/novel/comic book series is great fun. Recently got into Mad Men, now have charged through all five seasons and am hanging out for season six.

    Anyone made any recent discoveries that they would recommend?

    The 70s Lupin anime (both red and green seasons) are available on Hulu. One of the few shows on there that I think is worth the annoying commercial breaks.

    Not sure what's available worldwide. I've been watching Classic Doctor Who on Netflix and it's great...but strangely there are no Dalek episodes. What gives?

    I recently watched the anime Gurren Lagann for the first time.

    It's really pretty cool if you can endure the earlier episodes... or if you can't. You won't miss too much.

    This new format threw me off. It's not April 1 here yet so it took me a few moments to figure out what I was looking at.

    To me, this was the most obvious April Fools ever, since Ponymasters was mentioned before.

    Everypony, somepony and nopony.

    I'd like to see if that 'word glitch' stays after today, I have seen something like this in other forums as well but don't know how it works in practice.

    So I have gotten into Doctor Who for the first time ever. Any other Whovians out there?

    No, I have never watched Doctor Who although I have had months of time after that post of yours, Gavin.

    It's so quiet here in Fanfic, which only reflects the general quietness around here at TPM. My writing projects were always too ambitious, it makes them almost impossible to finish. But I somehow was tempted to continue 'Pokemon and Death Note' or 'Sinuhe the Trainer' yesterday, don't know why. The most difficult thing I faced in those crossovers was that I felt like I was just unoriginal, re-doing the original plots.

    How come no one has posted here since April? Where is everyone?

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I finally defended my thesis yesterday! So now I only have to write Spanish summaries of all chapters in my thesis (an annoying task, but the last annoying task!) and then it's just a matter of paperwork for me to officially get my PhD!

    And then I'll get back to writing again, because I really, really miss writing fantasy rather than science.

    Well congratulations Gabi!

    I will be busy preparing my Japanese course, but still I think I will have some time for TPM. Some time.
