"Mucked about by Terry Pratchett" was also at the beginning of The Color of Magic... :D

Yes The last bit at the end. :) But what seriously pissed me of was the set digi box kept on losing the signal, four times it happened through the film then rebooting,it's just done again as I speak may have to ring up Virgin tomorrow not going to put up with it. :(

Unfortunately I don't have sky so I will just have to wait for it to be released on DVD. :(

Me too Penfold but I enjoyed the trailers on terrestrial TV (BBC Breakfast) and it shouldn't be too long before we can see it too.

Well watched 2nd part and found it very good...... but again felt deviations from the book slightly spoilt the show, over-all I would rate it an 8.5 out of 10.

Missing...... sorting machine (in the book the machine caused the collapse of the post office and was instrumental in the death of the banshee)

Missing..... the post office cat ! :shock:

Where are the Dwarfs and trolls?

Adora giving up fags? NEVER!! :lol: Whats going to happen if they make Making Money?

And other many other changes too........

BUT this stood up as a very good adoption of one of Mr Pratchett's more involved books and I for one am glad it has been done.

I'm sorry? They got rid of the sorting machine?! How do you fill a plot gap like that?

I thought Going Postal was very good, although I haven't read the book (I've only just red Colour Of Magic :oops:)

If you liked the show then you will LOVE the book, the book is even better than the show,with more mad and fun ideas from Mr. Pratchett ! And as it doesn`t completely mirror the show then there are some surprises awaiting you...... 8) enjoy!!
