Yes, I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey when it first came out. I watched it on TV recently too, and thought like you G-Force, that it has stood the test of time remarkably well. I think being older (much older!) I got much more from it this time round. The significance of that sinister monolith has always puzzled me however, and still does. The special effects were superb, and I can appreciate the technical achievements a lot more now.
I've also been watching the re-runs of To The Manner Born, and like it much better than I ever used to. Penelope Keith I now realise, was excellent in the role.
