  1. From Body Parts: Quark: You weren't always a tailor. Garak: No you're right, I used to be a gardener. So if you need anything weeding, you let me know.
  2. This one is also great from Improbable Cause. It's not just the lines that are great but Andrew Robinson's performance, he injects every line with a nuance. Sisko: Someone tried to kill you, Garak. Whoever it was may try again, so if I were you, I would give this matter some serious thought. Garak: Well, let me see. I mean, there's the Nausicaan whose wedding suit I misplaced; and the Yridian I owe money to; and of course, there's always Major Kira. Dr. Bashir: This is serious, Garak. Garak: I'm being serious. I don't think she likes me. Odo: She doesn't. But if she wanted you dead, you would be. Garak: You do have a point.
  3. Thought I'd start this fun little topic seen as Garak has so many good lines in the show. My current favourite is from "Way of the Warrior"- (Klingon says something to Odo in Klingon assuming they won't understand the insult) Garak: Actually I don't believe Constable Odo has a mother. (Klingon looks shocked that Garak knows Klingon. They walk off) Odo: I didn't know you spoke Klingon. Garak: Oh, You'd be surprised at the things you can learn when you're doing alterations. Would love to know other peoples favourite lines.
  4. It was okay. There was some good stuff but there was some equally dumb stuff. I was disappointed considering that this was the same creative teams that brought us Watchmen, Batman Begins, the Dark Knight and the Dark Knight Rises. The tone an morals were all over the place as well. My least favourite of the movies I've seen this summer.
  5. I like to know what's being played at any gig. I don't like going to concerts and the band plays songs I don't know, because I know that 3 months down the line I'll listen to those songs and end up really liking them and being annoyed that I missed out on knowing those songs at the time. So looking at the Setlist allows me to become familiar with songs I might not have listened to. For example I had never given the synth era much attention, I have to admit I'd always been a synth hater without actually ever listening to the songs very much. But when I heard they were playing a lot of synth era songs on this tour, I was a bit annoyed, heck I even made an account to voice my opinions on here. But eventually I bought the synth era albums and not only got into the ones they were playing but ones that they weren't. Between the Wheels, Emotion Detector, the Enemy Within, Afterimage, all of them, I love them all now! I'd like to think now that I know the entire discography that I might not look at the Setlist if they ever do another tour, but I know that I'll crumble and look at it anyway.
  6. Just seen the Who for the very first time, doing Quadrophenia in full plus other hits! f***ing epic man! Awesome show!
  7. I agree that Battlestar Galactica (not the 70's version, obviously :P ) transcends the genre. I think of it as THE science-fiction show for people who don't like science-fiction. Exactly! I've been trying to tell people how not nerdy it is. I'm a massive science fiction fan and was expecting it to be in the same vain as Star Trek, Farscape and other shows like that. It wasn't but it was still awesome. I describe it as TopGun in space with robots. except 500 times better than top gun! :P it's really the dramatic aspects of the story and the characters/psychology/relationships that take it well beyond the genre. Great to see RDM's BSG get some love. It is the second highest ranked sci-fi on the list, edged by ST:TOS. To me, RDM's BSG is the greatest sci-fi show ever written and I am a big sci-fi fan. I had to watch from the BSG mini-series to get the complete picture, but once I did, I was absolutely enthralled. Everyone I've shown it to (I own the complete series) has loved it regardless of whether they are sci-fi fans or not. The writing and acting are simply superb and it transcends the genre. http://www.thescifiworld.net/img/smilies/galactica/cylon/cylon002.gif Of course, my opinion of the show isn't evident from my signature ... or location ... or member title ... ;) my fave sci-fi show is still star trek TNG, but battlestar is way up there. It was a strange feeling for me when BSG displaced TNG. I'm still a big TNG fan too (and TOS). I have a friend whose watching Voyager now (again) and it's funny to listen to him talk about watching the show jump the shark - just like a traffic accident. I remember the exact same feeling. Kind of a wtf sort of feeling as I softly cursed Berman's and Braga's names under my breath... i loved voyager. in fact, i loved every star trek series. DS9 was easily the weakest one for me, and even that was pretty great. Personally I thiought DS9 was the strongest. For me its DS9, TOS, TNG, VOY, ENT.

  9. House should be way higher. That show was written fantastically. Sex and the City made the list? Really? I'm pleased Battlestar Galactica made the list as in my opinion that transcends the genre of science fiction and is one of the greatest of the 21st century.
  10. It was awesome! However as I have said before, my only complaint is that my section was pretty dead atmosphere wise. i have no idea how people can just sit there and watch. I wanted to get up and air bass, air guitar and air drum throughout the whole thing. Next time I'm going to try and get seats closer to the floor as they seemed to be showing their enjoyment much more than anyone around me.
  11. First two albums, Rise and Everyday Demons are just excellent albums where as their third, Revival is a bit hit and miss if you buy the deluxe album Disc 2 is considerably better than disc one.
  12. He's still performing. Still a creative spirit. You may have to travel a bit, but it would be worth it The thing is I'm from the UK and not in one of the major cities. When he comes he usually plays London or Manchester or Birmingham and tickets sell fast. It's like Tom Petty, he played the Albert Hall last summer. I would have cu both my legs off to have gone to that and was willing to travel but tickets sold in a flash.
  13. Anyone heard of the Irish rock band, the Answer?
  14. Paul Simon is on my to see list. He's on of those guys like Tom Petty who I really want to see but I know it's a very slim chance. But still, here's hoping...
  15. R.I.P. An inspiration, always loved the Doors. Not many of these guys left now...
