Today I learned that in 2021, Mothers Day and Steak and Blowjob Day both fall on the same date, Sunday 14 March. I'm quite disturbed by this.

...that the "Renegade Edition" of Highlander II: The Quickening was actually a complete re-working of the premise to mitigate the shit sci-fi plot-hole. I never bothered with it because I thought it was just one of those director's cuts and figured it probably couldn't do much to improve it, but having been given a précis of the synopsis by a mate, I'm now intrigued and would like to see it.

Said mate did inform me that it's still not brilliant, but that it's still miles better, and at least a lot more fun, which the original patently was not.

It's a marked improvement on the original (which was such a stupid left turn for what seemed like a very simple concept and one that damaged the Highlander property massively), but it's still a bit bonkers/ropey.

...something that the more pop-culture-savvy on here will probably know already, that Tracy Grandstaff, who voices Daria, was in the pilot (or "Season 0") of The Real World, and was a production assistant on a couple of later episodes.
