Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Music nostalgia

On the drive home from work last night, I was listening to our* "Every Number One Ever" collection, the 1987 section, which reminded me of two things:

a.) How much I utterly adore Starship's Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, especially the guitar solo. So shoot me.

b.) That if you listen to every number one from 1987, sooner or later (track 15, if it's in chronological order) you're going to get Rick-rolled.



*Mine and Tim's. Augmented with all the double A-sides and EP tracks that normally get missed off such collections.
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop


I realise this isn't entirely unprecedented, but...

...before it goes on mid-season hiatus, FlashForward is being pre-empted this week because it's Thanksgiving weekend.

Well, it's being pre-empted in the US.

In the UK, however, episode 10 (which goes by the gloriously memorable title of A561984 - sounds like an OU module...), is being broadcast as usual on Monday 30th November, i.e. three days ahead of US transmission.

Which is neat.

It's also being accompanied by a little mini-doc, FlashForward: Revealed - "a fascinating look back at the series so far, including interviews with the show's actors and writers, as well as celebrity talking heads." Sayd the Radio Times.

Meanwhile I can't work out whether Paradox is going to be a.) deeply fascinating or b.) Bonekickers II, but I suspect I'm going to watch the first episode anyway.
