A new thread for media stories that aren't worth a thread of their own.

The name's Thomas, Thomas the Tank Engine.

They'll never top Ringo Starr!

I thought that as well.

Would now be a good time to say I've never watched The Sopranos?

I've only seen a few myself, and it is very good. Have all the seaons (so far) on DVD to catch up on.

It would be nice if the Emmy's gave an award for ensemble cast or something.

They'd probably spell it right as well!


I think there is one US film award that already does this.

I wasn't going to mention it.

Like I say, I think it's a good idea. A lot of shows use ensembles now, and to be fair, a lot of them have very weak individual performances. Scrubs, I'm looking at you here.

I don't think the individual cast members in Scrubs are that bad, in fact I'd say some of them are pretty good, but their performances are more physical than emotional, so their characters are never going to have any great depth for the actors to play to.

As I've said elsewhere, I've recently watched series three and four back-to-back and, although I still think it is funny, there is no real difference between the episodes at the beginning of series three and the end of series four.

At the end of the day though Scrubs isn't meant to be anything more than a light-weight comedy, and on that score it works for me.

It's just getting a bit samey now. The characters seem to do the exact same thing in every episode these days, and the soft-rock even seems to be the same piece of music...
