Never been happier that I can stream videos from YouTube to my XBox/TV...

except the last time I said this about a collection of YT links as part of a seemingly brilliant post.

Can't wait to get around to watching this one at home.

Oh my lord, you're all in for a treat. I *loved* this short season when it was on BBC4. Great post!

A bit Who-heavy, but quite splendid otherwise. Yay!

Yeah, this is quality stuff. I especially liked the focus, in the third episode, on apocalyptic fiction. Threads is absolutely bone-chilling.
