Anyone who doesn't live in England and wants to see the new Poirot eppys can look up "Murder in three acts' and 'The clocks' on YouTube- they're both up.

The Clocks?! That one hasn't even premiered here yet! Three Act Tragedy has only just aired. I recorded it but haven't had a chance to see it yet.

Bear in mind that The Clocks has subtitles all the way through, which might get annoying. Apart from that, they're both excellent quality.

Daybreakers - another pointless vampire flick cash-in due to the success of Twilight. The main character in Daybreakers is called Edward, for crying out loud!

True, true.

It's weird, I'm a big horror fan - I love slashers, ghosts, creatures, zombies etc. but the one subgenre that doesn't interest me is vampires. Dunno why.

I think it looks dreadful, but finally some blood and guts return to vampirehood! Dracula is one of the greatest stories of all-time, and what has been done to vampires thanks to the Twitard brigade is unforgiveable, much like what My Little Pony has turned unicorns (once mythical beasts with a nasty habit of goring people through the head with their horn and becoming invisible at will) into.

And I don't care- if you can see someone in a mirror, no matter how pale they are, they're not vampires. Honestly, the Twilight vampires are no different from ordinary humans- they just have a really bad skin condition.

I prefer witches over vampires. They're just my favourite mythical being, and always have been long before Harry Potter and Sabrina.

I still have to go to school even though the roads are slippery and the snow comes up to my ankles. Some people get all the luck. :evil:
