…on Blu-Ray, and it was very good. It’s based on the Discworld book by the same name by Terry Pratchett, and it turned out to be a reasonably good adaptation of the novel*; the characters (and actors) were engaging, the quasi-Victorian sets were excellent and the original book’s themes about technology, innovation, and how both can be pretty cool came across pretty well. I liked it: check it out. If you’re a Terry Pratchett fan, you should like this.
And if you’re not a Terry Pratchett fan already… well. There are a lot of people out there with your condition, and many of them go on to live reasonably full and meaningful lives. So, you shouldn’t give up hope, or anything.
*Short version: the hero is a conman who is ‘hired’ by the most brilliant politician in Western literature to resurrect a fantasy city-state’s post office system from the financial oblivion that arose from the introduction of a
steampunk clockworkpunk stringpunk equivalent of the early telegraph/internet system.
Yes, I know. But it was written by Terry Pratchett. So it’s good. It’s really, really good.
