Yes, but you like Cody Willis from Neighbours.

And that's just you.

And aspersions as to the mental faculties of anyone who disagrees with you are strongly discouraged.

Not just you - me also. Very strongly so, in fact.

But that's just me... oh, and him.

Final polish tonight, and then it's all yours.

Would have been quicker but I had my brain washed and then, for reasons I no longer understand, back-combed.

I'm assuming that's just me, though.

Just to moderately hijack this thread, a topic that's come up in discussion with a friend elsewhere: is there anyone out there who likes Dimensions In Time - or even just thinks it's not poor?

I've only managed to watch the first minute when it was first one before turning it off. I tried to watch it again a couple of years ago and I only managed 30 seconds. I think I'd need some opium to get through the whole thing.

I've seen all of Dimensions In Time and it's very much like taking opium. There's this peculiar dreamlike quality to it, where you can almost grapple things back down to reality before they ooze, oily and determined, back into the bizarre. Imagine...looking in a mirror to find your reflection coated in a thin but visible layer of lard.

It's like that.

Only less pleasant.

I first saw Dimensions In Time on YouTube. I had no expectations, other than to finally see the blasted thing. There are a few moments in it where I don't feel like I'm wasting my time but I can't say I liked it or that I don't think it's poor.

The only time I've ever seen it was when it was broadcast.

The oddest oddity in the entire history of Who, methinks. So horrendously bad that it actually grows...even more horrendously bad by the time you've finished watching it.

But of course, that's just me.

At Mr. Tidy Beard's insistence, part 2 of Dimesnions In Time was cut by a minute or two. Imagine how differently it may be regarded today if such a heinous crime hadn't occured.

Perhaps they cut out the wrong minute. Perhaps the minute deleted equaled "just go forward in all your beliefs..."

Or at least got to the level of the spider scene in Full Circle...

Maybe it featured the long-demanded return of the guard from Horns of Nimon, marching round Albert Square and calling the cast of EastEnders 'weakling scum!'

Unless it's also us... I think. Hrmm.

The second time I watched it was sort of MST3K style. Haven't seen it a third time as of yet.

I actually made the mistake of rewatching it using Three-D glasses once.

I'm still undergoing deep, deep therapy. affraid
