  3. I will definitely be watching World on Fire when it's released to the US. I won't go out of my way for War of Worlds, but I can see my hubby putting it on and me watching it while pretending to not pay attention.

  4. Too bad World on Fire isn't here yet. Jason's been flipping through the programs trying to find something to watch tonight. Settled on some Nazi Germany film. We'll have to look for it on PBS when it's finally released here.
