Absolute Power (2003–2005)
A damn fine job, brilliant!
7 January 2006
Hi, This is a fantastic satire on spin and th 'real' power behind popular news stories of the day. British irony at its best. Wickedly funny. Stephen Fry is at his best portraying Charles Prentiss and the script is far above the cheap humour seen on other comedy series, though some might find it a bit too high-brow.

There were 2 runs of this show one in autumn/winter 2003 and then in summer 2005.

PS - For those who like these kind of media based cynicism would also like "Trevor's World of Sport" another BBC comedy to feature around the same time starring Neil Pearson and Paul Reynolds.

Both shows at their heart are about (comic) observations of a crazy world that feature an ironic pair as bosses, one controlling manipulative and the other bumbling, meek work to look forward to retire.

To the Limit (1989)
9/10
Fantastic for Imax
3 September 2005
I saw this documentary about 12 years back in the Singapore Science Centre, my 1st time to an IMAX theatre. Was really impressed

Some of the scenes make you feel part of the action to such an extent that I swear in one of them you feel yourself falling down. A few action sports selected for giving you that sense of how sports-persons drive their body to the limit in search of excellence are cycling, running, mountain climbing skiing etc.

The physiological effects happening within your body are well illustrated.

Don't want to say too much. Just go and watch it if you can in an Imax theatre.

Good luck.

Laugh-a-riot most of the way. Paul Reiser is just great. Liv Tyler is near perfect as an allurable 'object of desire'.

made my day!
