Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere: 15th Anniversary Edition (My Review)

I previously mentioned that I got the DVD of the 15th anniversary of the Neverwhere miniseries that aired on BBC.

::grin:: I've gotten some interesting comments from some of you folks and, I'll be honest, some of you guys don't remember it too fondly.

But I'm gonna give you my thoughts and maybe it'll change your mind and encourage you to give it another look.

From what I understand and as Neil Gaiman mentioned on the commentary back in the day (we also have the original miniseries DVD at Chateau Geek), the miniseries wasn't quite "finished" when it aired. It was shot on video for budgetary reasons and, while the plan was to go in and make it look more like film, the budget didn't allow for it in the end. Hence, when it aired, the look of it felt wrong.

I also think, and this is my opinion, that people have become much more familiar with the look and feel of BBC productions. My guess is that, 15 years ago, things we now take for granted might have felt...odd.

The 15th Anniversary edition has been remastered and definitely for the better. I'm 3 episodes in and
I've been enjoying it immensely. I'd definitely suggest picking up this new version and giving it a shot.

Just a reminder, here's what's included.

BONUS FEATURES:

  • 15th Anniversary Intro with Neil Gaiman, Lenny Henry and producer Clive Brill
  • 15th Anniversary Audio Commentary with Gaiman, Henry and Brill
  • Original Interview with Gaiman
  • Original Audio Commentary with Gaiman
  • Photo Gallery
  • Character Descriptions
  • Neverwhere Map Insert


Besides, it's all of 16 bucks and in stock. I mean, c'mon. ::grin::

Is Ivory Soap Taking Aim At Geek Soap Crafters?

Interesting. Ivory soap has decided to be cute and "define" soap.



But here's what's even more interesting. The commenters on You Tube like the other soaps. And those soaps, in my opinion, get free advertising. So I think it kinda backfired on 'em.

However, it did inspire Luxury Lane Soap maker Kylee Lane (her Brain Wash soap gets a nice feature in the Ivory ad) to post a blog post and offer this rather awesome rebuttal to Ivory.



Personally, I don't use Ivory. It seemed to exacerbate my skin issues.

Nope. I lather up with my Black Phoenix Trading Post Port Royal Soap. Because I believe bathing should be a cleansing and sensual experience. And because their soaps (and Kylee's, for that matter) don't leave me itching but feeling clean and happy and smelling like a pirate wench.

And I prefer that any day of the week.
