Tara, yes it worked better in the studio for some reason... I went to the preview screening for the first three episodes too & found them okay (the next two episodes do work better in my opinion) but what stood out for me were that the performances were much better than the scripts. Mark is just gre...

Ellie & I made it through to 6.00am! We left before 'Scream Blacula Scream' but as Jeremy pointed out, he hadn't even chosen that film. As Ellie said we both needed to sleep (I had an hour before I had to travel up to Nottingham for Mark's 'What Are You Scared Of' at the Mayhem Horror Festival) It w...
