Editing...

So, not being content with having my own editing tasks for Cubicle 7 I sent the BBC an email this morning pointing out a ton of mistakes in one of their online articles (a football one about the England Squad announcement). It had loads of errrors in (I think their editors must all be away for the abnk holiday) and even called one of the palyers by the wrong name in the article (Robert Green is apparently now called Paul Green!).

It was a shockingly bad piece to be posted on the BBC News Site. You'd have thought that they would vet their journalists for grammer and spelling competence!

Anyway, I've had a decent bank holiday weekend. I took Saturday off and went and saw 'Angels & Demons' at the cinema and then started on Babylon 5 Season 3 (I'd never seen the show before so started from the 1st Season a couple of weeks ago - much of the 1st Season is pretty badly acted but it gets better by Season 2 and the over-arcing plotline is very good). I was in the office for a few hours yesterday sorting out addresses for all our Starblazer Adventures pre-order customers (which should be arriving here on Wednesday) and am in again today to finish that off, do some more editing and also get a batch of art briefs out.

Been having lots of good ideas for a new setting we're working on and also, from that in some ways, an excellent idea for a new novel (should I ever get the time and talent...).

Anyway, back to work for me. Hope everyone has had a good weekend and holiday!

IIRC, the BBC Online lot try to have an article up in five minutes from receiving details to publishing online, which is ridiculously short.

Also, enjoy B5 - S3 is a really good high point, although you could skip 'Gray 17 is missing' and not care (it's terrible). And the ending will frig you up :-P

I've got all five seasons on DVD and got through S1 + S2 in a week each. The show certainly has high and low points, but the story arc is brilliant. I'm very glad it was allowed to run with a larger plot in the background as it meant the developers could properly leave hints and scenes that would gain a lot mroe relevence later in the series.

Well, they weren't sure about getting an S5, so the main plot wraps up in S4. As such, S5 is seen as filler, but I like it because it deals with aftermaths - and too many stories act like the climax is the end of the story, forgetting that problems aren't solved in 45 mins plus ads.

Plus, S5 has View From The Long Gallery and guest writers including Niel Gaiman.

As I recall, there's a set of three episodes somewhere in the middle of S3 in which they rev the arc story up to 11 and my jaw spent a lot of quality time with the carpet.
