Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Todd, thanks very much for the link to my review. I haven't been around for a while, so it's good to see new reviewers writing about some interesting films and television.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Some marvellous stuff here and lots of interesting TV too (never seen TIGHTROPE or MAN IN THE MIDDLE and would really like to now). Thanks as always chum,.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Prashant, and good to have you among the contributors again.

And you, Sergio...TIGHTROPE being among the relatively few tv series to have spawned its own fiction magazine, as I've noted here before...probably should put that link in...

Brian Busby said...

Greetings Todd, here's one of my rare contributions:

The Wild Olive.

Sadly, another lost film.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Brian. Well, the slim chance a print will be discovered in Christchurch or a melting glacier due north of Yellowknife...

Elizabeth Foxwell said...

Thanks as always, Todd, for your hard work in compiling these links and for including my picks.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Elizabeth...thanks for your contributions!
