Re: Pub Quiz Relay

Ooooh, Clarke Peters, surely?

He was in Edinburgh this summer doing Five Guys Named Moe, at least - walking past my friend's office window every morning, too. Cheery fella.

Re: The Social Network

Most interesting, and a fine review!

I must confess I'm one of those people who saw Sorkin's name on the thing and cheered up. But only just. I thought The West Wing was great (or certainly the...

Time was I would also feel lost. My advice is, if you don't know it, don't worry about it. Start with something you DO know, and work up.
