Nebulous Series 3

I love Nebulous. If you haven't been lucky enough to hear it, I highly recommend you hunt down a copy on amazon or play as soon as possible.

I love it because it's just plain silly.

It's a bizarre mix of Pertwee era Doctor Who, a splash of Quatermass and a light sprinkling of Police Squad, mixed together in a bowl with half a pound of butter, an egg, a handful of sultanas and... I'm drifting...

It's such a cleverly silly comedy. Half the gags, you can hear coming a mile away, which is great because you laugh before they arrive, its like you are waiting for the punchline.

Series 3 sees Nebulous, Paula, Rory and Harry facing old nemesis Dr Klench once more, played with gusto by David Warner. Also the last episode features Doctor Who himself David Tennant.

If you like your comedy genuinely funny, but aren't too po faced to laugh at silly humor, then get hunt this down as fast as possible... but remember....

No running in the corridor!

So I stumbled across this site whilst looking for a way to generate a bit of spare cash. I read up about it, it's not the nicest site in the world, and it's a wee bit clandestine in how it operates, but after doing a bit of research, I decided to give it a go.

Reviewstream pay $2 for every review they publish... but there's a catch... They are in total control of what gets published... And as the minimum payout is $50... You're probably way ahead of me on this one!

I did my research which told me that to have the best chance of the $2 payout per review, I should stick to the topics of medicine, electrical goods and local businesses.

With that in mind, I decided to spend a weekend shoving on reviews whenever I got chance, mainly to prove to myself that it was legit. I thought that if I stuck on over 50 reviews and they paid out, then it was well worth persuing and slapping a few on every day.

Sadly, that's where the catch comes in. At first, it takes you 3 whole days to get a reply saying yay or nay to your review.

It turned out they didn't want local businesses and were only accepting full price reviews for medicine and electrical goods, so I persisted with those, kinda giving them a second chance.

Now when I send a review, I instantly get a rejection letter knowing full well that there is no way on Earth they could have read it and reviewed it in that time.

So my review of reviewstream isn't too good.

All you end up doing is writing content rich reviews for them to cream adword money off with no chance of ever reaching the $50 threshold to pay for your hard work.

If you want to earn some money online then this is the only review you need concerning reviewstream... Don't waste your valuable time and go look for something else instead.

And for those of you that want to give it a go because they're gluttons for punishment, the link is

Asus Eee PC series Laptop

I first saw one of these while shopping round for a cheap new PC for work. I actually thought it was some sort of kid's toy when I first clapped eyes on it.

The Asus Eee PC series laptop really is tiny. It's about the size of a thin oversized hardback book (think Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone!) and is incredibly lightweight.

It comes with charger that is more like a large phone charger than a laptop one, and it is absolutely brimming with features.

It doesn't have a hard drive in the normal sense and uses sold state memory instead. The memory size is tiny, but to be honest, if you are wanting something to do lots of work on, you wouldn't look at this anyway.

So what is it good for? Travel, surfing the net, general use. It has a built in Wi-Fi adaptor, that produces a nice strong connection and it is perfect for internet browsing.

Some models even have a built in webcam. It has speakers and a mic as well and comes pre installed with Skype, messenger, etc...

This would make it ideal for someone planning to go travelling.With the ability to phone home for free at a wifi hotspot, it would be invaluable.

Also as it uses web based email, etc... it is a great item to do a few basic work related tasks on while you're on the move.

It does take a little while to get used to the smaller keyboard, especially someone who has huge hands, like me, but I've been using it about 3 weeks now and I have grown used to it. in fact, I am typing this review on it now!

The very best thing about the Eee PC though is the price. At £199, it really is a must have item for anyone looking for an easy to use, dinky laptop.

Buy one, you won't be disappointed!

Gavin & Stacey Series 1 DVD

I got into Gavin and Stacey quite late in the day. Sort of. I watched the first episode, really liked it, watched the second episode, ditto. Then thanks to holidays and odd scheduling on BBC3, I managed to watch the same two episodes again about 3 times but none of the other episodes of the series!

Thankfully, the series then went over to BBC2, and they had a full night, showing back to back episodes... I fell asleep after episode 3! Not because it was bad I hasten to add, just because I was tired.

So, it came to pass that I purchased the DVD on the day of release. I got it from for a very reasonable price.

And my verdict of the series as a whole? Breathtakingly good! It isn't your usual BBC comedy. Those range from terrible predictable farce ( My Family , etc) to surreal humor ( League of Gentlemen , Mighty Boosh , etc...)

So it's nice and refreshing to get something, not exactly inbetween... something.... Real. All comedy shows are exaggerated and cartoonish in their own way, and Gavin & Stacey isn't. It feels real. It has exaggerated elements, but they feel believable thanks to the stellar performances by the regulars.

And that's the secret of Gavin & Stacey's success. Every character is real, important and funny. They all have their various quirks and odd behavioral patterns, but they are all real characters. You care what happens to them, you laugh with them and, amazingly, you cry with them.

That's a strong thing for a comedy series to achieve, and hats off to the writers, James Cordon & Ruth Jones for doing such an amazing job of it here.

Series two is just as good, but we'll wait for the DVD release to review that one.

If you want 3 hours worth of heart warming comedy, then buy a bottle of rosé, order in a pizza and settle down with someone you care about. Stick this DVD on and you're guaranteed a perfect evening.
