Don’t you think Bush/Blair looks tired?

Anyway. The actual post-
Some of you may not know of my utter adoration for Terry Pratchett’s Johnny series, but…I utterly adore Terry Pratchett’s Johnny series. (See icon- that’s a quote from Johnny and the Dead.) And this Christmas I learned they’re making a miniseries of Johnny and the Bomb-it was just on Blue Peter half an hour or so ago. I’m completely torn. On the one hand, all the clips I’ve seen of it look excellent and pretty close to the version in my head, but on the other hand…it’s one of my books, even more so than Harry Potter. And although I’m always saying I want a fandom for it…in a way, I also don’t, because that means I have to share those books with other people.
And, of course, I might run across people talking about it later: “Shit plot, shit characters, book’s probably a load of crap too.” It isn’t, but that’s the sort of thing people say so often, and you can’t stop them but that sort of thing is a lot more frustrating than you might think. Even though it shouldn’t be.
And this entire post is pretty hypocritical of me, seeing as I plan to somehow make a film version of Only You Can Save Mankind. ;)
So…yeah. I’m going to watch it and tape it, of course, but…I’m kinda half excited and sort of wishing they weren’t doing it. I suppose I’m glad they’re doing JATB, which although I love it is my least favourite of the three- at least they’re not doing Only You Can Save Mankind.*
*this is because they’ve blown their aliens-and-spaceships budget on Doctor Who. ;)
