The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn has just hit the cinemas in the UK and it's got me all reminiscent of the classic 90s television series that I grew up with, as well as the fantastic comic books by Hergé. I can only hope the new movie lives up to comic books and TV series.

Following the release of the film, a DVD & blu-ray collection of the complete animated TV series has gone on sale. HMV are offering it at £15/£35 (DVD/Blu-Ray) and I've just picked myself up a copy. I loved the series as a child, and can't wait to recapture the magic again as I relive all 39 episodes over 3 seasons.

It's great to rewatch programmes and movies you loved as a child; you get a warm feeling of nostalgia as you remember why you loved it back then. I've recently been taking advantage of my 2-month free trial with LoveFilm and their complete back catalogue of Thunderbirds episodes. Thunderbirds was another gem I used to watch as a child and it's great to reminisce and remind yourself what you used to like so long ago.
