Like you I can forgive the perfunctoriness of the solution because of (a) how shocking it was and (b) the fact that the sci-fi stuff was really only a McGuffin.
Davies has overstretched himself recently. A lot of his work for Dr Who and (especially) Torchwood was shoddy, but I've never really doubted that he's a major writer. Have you seen his Casanova- with David Tennant and Peter O'Toole? It's brilliant!
I know I spent a lot of the last 3 nights watching you!!!
I just can't function without you - it's pathetic - you've just started cooking some interesting meals, I'd have to go to the chippy (lol)
Have you though about having a sleep study done? It's a pain, but getting a CPAP machine has dramatically improved the quality of my life.
I haven't. In fact it's not something I've ever considered before. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into it.
Thanks for the link. This is all new to me. I think the other night's problem was an aberration- due to me running a fever and having blocked airways- but I'll look into it.
Sleep is good.
Breathing while sleeping, priceless.
Heh, heh, heh.... Couldn't agree more.
Sleep apnea killed my favorite uncle. It is more of a health condition than a sleep disorder, and they have made a ton of progress in treatment over the last decade. Really, talk to your doctor, and take your wife with you since she's more aware of what goes on while you're sleeping than you are. If have this problem and get it fixed it will enrich the quality of your life so immensely you will not believe it, (not to mention lengthening it).
I obviously need to get this sorted out. I could do with an improved quality of lfe :)
We're downloading the last of the episodes today, can't wait!
I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Gee! Get better, dammit! That cold has hung on for some time now -- and what's this with the breathing? It's something to see about, I think.
It's been two distinct infections. The first, I think, was flu- and the second was a cold. I believe I'm on the upward path now.
Thanks for caring.
I was crying during the last episode of Torchwood as it touched bits of my psyche that the rest of hadn't. It was very a brave subject to tackle (and even braver to have got it broadcast and not pulled from the airwaves) - as science fiction. Imagine that content without the sci-fi element of it... Rather too much in it like nazi Germany bussing off some of my family and ancestors to the camps for my liking. I presume that's what it was meant to imply (apart from the vaguelly silly 'drug' implication). Monster=nazis. Or maybe I'm just being oversensitive and reading too much into a TV story.
As for the sleep apnea - well, others will have given you info about this, but my thought is always - barring anything going down the airways that shouldn't, just before breathing stops - how long can one normally hold ones breath for before expiring?
If one holds one's breath often enough (like, several times an hour), one ends up oxygen deprived. It's truly NOT good for your body.
Well, I finally finished the last Torchwood at 1 AM. I can't believe I stayed up that late! It was pretty exciting, but I mostly felt like Davies wanted to make sure that "Torchwood" would never be back by removing all possibility. Having Jack kill 2 family members was completely over the top, IMO.
There's always a way to bring back a successful TV or movie franchise if the will is there. After the success of the mini-series, I should imagine execs at the BBC will be keen to keep the show on the road- if necessary with an entirely new team.
