@adm_76 @sylmobile @smperris That’s one of the strengths of AU drama. Not every thought is said aloud by an actor. Doesn’t help you.

@adm_76 @sylmobile @smperris There’s no audio description available? Then you’re screwed. Much is done with image rather than dialog.

@smperris @sylmobile Won the Screen Writers Guild awards for best mini-series and the gold. I think it’s rather good.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

@smperris A tiny weeny bit at the early stages of development. My notes indicate that there was a little influence in early episodes.

I see that people are encountering a certain series of plot twists in “The Code” tonight. [Smirks.] Excellent.

@michaelneale We don’t get koel up here, I don’t think. The cuckoo-doves seem to fill that niche.

@ABForScience True enough. There’s also a couple species turning up this week that I don’t recall hearing before.

RT @glengyron: No, there’s no ‘ideal’ Stilgherrian trolling season. [True, that. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

I’m currently being trolled by two crimson rosellas still in their green juvenile feathers. That’s a bit out of season, isn’t it?

@BXGD Deconstructing that video would be an excellent class exercise in a media studies course, I reckon. “No uglies” is standard though.
