    Haven't gotten to see any of the films over here...I'm too cheap to buy the premium stations and the networks are too cheap to buy good quality films

    <EDIT>...and yes, it is good! One of my favorites, along with almost all of the Vimes cycle..."THUD" being my favorite there

    Look on YouTube.

    I'm having a go at rereading all the Discworld books, I'm up to Pyramids.
    I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned

    Pyramids is a bit of an outlier, as are Moving Pictures, Small Gods, Jingo, and Soul Music, which can all stand alone. But it is good to read the others in order.
    I also enjoyed his collaboration s with Stewart and Cohen exploring science.
