[Geek] Hogfather!

The Hogfather TV movie is actually way better than I thought it would be, from what I watched so far tonight. I keep giggling hysterically. It's not perfect, and some of the effects look a little cheesy, but, y'know? It's really fun nonetheless. And certainly better than Yet Another Showing of It's A Wonderful Life or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Don't get me wrong, holiday classics are great and all, but... it's Pterry! Discworld! And scarily, they did some inspired casting in terms of finding people who really not only look like but can /embody/ the characters.

Though the fact that they found someone who can pull off Ponder Stibbons is, frankly, a little terrifying.

Plus, I really like Mark Wallace as Danny in Hustle (and he wasn't bad in the Doctor Who episode 'Love and Monsters,' either), but his performance as Jonothon TeaTime proves that he's a scarily versatile actor.

That said, it's getting late, and I'm only maybe 40 minutes into the /first/ part of the miniseries. The rest of it is waiting all nice and happy on the TiVo for me, and I can watch it tomorrow or whatever.
