Re: The Dig

I did watch it, Simon. Definitely better than average. At least there were no exploding cars and only one plane crash off screen.

Well-acted, too.

Thanks.

Re: Does anyone know what this is?

There is no picture.

In order to post a photo you need to host it online - photobucket or some other such service - and then take the resulting link and put it between the Image tags.

Re: I Don't Know About This One
