  • LOL! Michael Sheen as Lucifer in the new Sandman series?

    https://jimheath.tv/2020/01/is-good-...-play-lucifer/

    I really like Michael Sheen - thought he was great as Brian Clough and David Frost but I can't - for the life of me - see him as Lucifer.

    • The catastrophe of the wildfires in Australia are on my mind a lot at the moment. I've just seen on facebook a link someone posted to a CBS News article where they listed a number of places you can donate to help and at the start of that the article says, "they show no signs of slowing down. Millions of acres have burned, destroying about 2,000 homes and killing at least 25 people. It is estimated that more than half a billion wild animals have perished in the flames — a number that is expected to exponentially increase. Entire towns have evacuated to the shores and volunteer firefighters have left their families and careers behind to fight the flames around the clock." It's a crisis that needs the international community to stand up.

      • Very sad. Now I feel shallow for wondering where Harry and Megan live when they move into my neighbourhood.

        • Hands up, does anyone actually care what Meghan and Harry do? Good luck to them, I don't even care if they get a stipend from the UK govt until they can afford their lifestyle. I just don't want to hear about them anymore.

            So you're not the secret Billionaire who loaned them a house then?

            @Priceless - I feel driven to defend them because the Mail attacks them but really I don't give a bugger.

            • To me, Kate and William are much more suited to the Canadian outdoor lifestyle then Meghan and Harry, but good luck to them. (Of course Canada might be very different to what I imagine )

                Yeah, it is the same for me. I am worried and at the same time feeling completely helpless.

                I am starting to despair over the news and even more so over what is not in the news. I mean, they are talking about the fire in Australia about two or three minutes in the German news each day. But seriously - considering what is happening here they should be talking about nothing else 24/. This is not only a fire. This is a catastrophe for the environment for the climate for the animal population for species diversity on this planet ... I get the feeling people are not looking properly. Why are Harry and Meghan even in the news, when something like this is happening simultaneously? Why is the Australian government not calling for international help?

                We are in this together even if it is happening on the spot that is farther away from us than any other spot on this planet. But people just think "Oh, this is happening in Australia. Not in my neighborhood. It doesn't concern me."

                  I wish I was a secret billionaire. There's a music producer, David Foster , it was his friend who is the Russian oligarch. I'm surprised the royal family is allowed to hang with Russian oligarchs. Justin Trudeau has said Canadians will foot their $850,000 security bill. Many people are not pleased. Live where you want and how you want but dont expect us to support you.

                    I've seen on the news American firefighters arriving in Australia. I think lots of nationalities are helping out. I've read that UK specialists have been over to assist and offer advice.

                      • It's now a real badge of honour to have convict ancestors. I've watched a few seasons of Australian Who Do You Think You Are and people are overjoyed when they learn of their convict ancestors.

                          I think people often avoid serious/unpleasant things that don't directly affect them because they don't feel able to do anything or just feel overwhelmed by their own problems too much to take on something so serious and big when anything they feel they could do would be so insignificant. Still, I'm going to look through all the donation options CBS News gave and try to actually do something from afar. It won't be much sadly, but anything can help just a little. Just the thought of the fear people/animals caught in this must be in distresses me.

                          That's good to hear.

                                It's only Buffy (she doesn't know Spike is still alive after the Hellmouth) but since she is at the North Pole there is lots and lots of snow.
