...and this time it looks like they have taken the time (and money) to do it properly!

Moreover, no sign of David Jason in shockingly inappropriate roles either!

I didn't like the hogfather, I sincerely hope this is good this time.

The trailer fills me with hope, and this could be because Going Postal was (for me) a far better story than Hogfather.

I never saw The Hogfather, as I don't have Sky.

Hogfather and The Colour Of Magic are both available on DVD. Unless you are a real fan, I would suggest watching them rather than buying as it is clear that the production budget was somewhat smaller than these projects required. Even so, they are both good representations of the books (Colour Of Magic also has a lot of The Light Fantastic in it), but it finally looks like someone has thrown a large bag of cash to the people who need it, and a good version of one of the best books is coming our way at this month!

LIGHT HORSEMEN!

I like Pratchetts books. But I haven't read many of them so far. I do try to read them in English though. I have read the ones with the the little blue man in them, but I forgot what their titles were.

If they played a big role, then it would be one of the children's books, Wee Free Men...

I am pleased to report that Going Postal was suitably brilliant. Moreover, unlike the other to dramatizations, they remembered that it was supposed to be funny - and made it so!

I placed an order for the Bluray this morning!
