So I got my pills for the vertigo on Monday. Yes, like everything else they have a list of possible side-effects as long as my arm!

Anyway, I ended up working from home most of the week. I've been mainly okay as long as I sit still, but driving was very uncomfortable and the computer screen was also weird. The worst part of it is not really the vertigo, but the constant feeling of being sea-sick that goes with it!

Anyway, I'm not definitely starting to feel a bit more human. I admit that this hasn't been my most productive week ever; I've just been keeping things ticking over and playing lots of Final Fantasy XIII-2 on the PS3 (finished the main story yesterday, now finishing off some of the side quests.)

We were thinking about going to the cinema today, but I'm feeling fairly light-headed again so maybe not...

On the mend, though!

I've noted in conversation many times in the past that there's a tendency to a sort of 'hive mind' about what you are supposed to like and not like in fandom (though this is maybe not as true as it used to be.) So, just for fun, what important/critically lauded/popular sf books, movies or tv series can you just not get what the fuss is about? Or understand the fuss but don't work for you?

Okay, so here's a starter from me:

I can understand why people consider 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner to be classics of sf cinema, but try as I might to like them I find them a bit...boring. I'd rather watch Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan or Back to the Future again than either of them.

*Prepares for brickbats...!*
