Goodnight Sweetheart and the BBC did a one off special and never commissioned for a return but instead did a Open All Hours retake...dicks.
Just yes. this film is so much better than you think it can be. And my god, does it stick with you. That ending....It's on Amazon Prime. Watch it!!On the iPlayer until Tuesday - The Borderlands
It's a superbly British horror film, dark humour and some moments where you jump. I liked it a lot. It's essentially about some people investigating strange goings on at an old church, so a suitably fortean theme.
When I had dinner at the Trinity College, Oxford High Table a couple of years ago* I was highly entertained by a Prof who told me all about how dangerous Oxford had become.I pay for my BritBos subscriiton mainly so that I have access to Midsummer Murders. I like cute and cozy; Tom Hanks for cute, BritBox for cozy (all that crime!!)
Swanky increases...I worked for one of the oldest Oxford colleges. My office was built and decorated in the year dot. I like to have radio 3 on in the background when I work. So, classical music is playing, I'm sat in my foolishly old and large office, and a student's non Oxford friend is with me. He looks round, blinks, and says "I feel like I'm in an episode of Morse". Me; "yep".When I had dinner at the Trinity College, Oxford High Table a couple of years ago* I was highly entertained by a Prof who told me all about how dangerous Oxford had become.
You only had to watch that vintage documentary series Inspector Morse or its more recent follow-up, Lewis, to realise that the place was full of jealousy, perversion and coldhearted murder.
Dons nearing retirement age are now looking into moving away from the hazards of the city to quiet villages in a pleasant county called, what was it now, oh yes, Midsomer.
*yes, I know, swanky!
Gaaawwwwd I had to actually GOOGLE this to find the title. I have to do EVERYTHING round'ere.I can thoroughly recommend the Spandau Ballet documentary on BBC2 tonight - see it on iPlayer if you missed it. From Rhys Thomas of Brian Pern/A Year in the Life of a Year fame and absolutely hilarious! Gary Kemp really was in a Children's Film Foundation film, it wasn't directed by Ken Russell, though. Don't think Martin Kemp was a Dalek, either. Funniest thing I've seen on TV for a while, really cheered me up.
I also enjoyed it. Having a continuing story made it less like a regular cartoon.I also found the Harley Quinn animation very watchable, waiting for season 2. Maybe it's a Warner Bros cartoon with rude words and 'adult humor' in it that does it for me.
That almost put me off watching it at first, and that’s from an adult who enjoyed the HP books and can’t wait for my kids to read them. It was the great ratings on IMDB that got me watching.Loved the Magicians (especially when Amazon Prime picked it up), blubbed at the end of season 5, hated how every reviewer felt compelled to describe the books as "Harry Potter for grown-ups"
Colin's been a slow burn, but they've all ended up really good (well, the characters are evil, but well-portrayed). Got two more episodes to finish, probably give them a go tonight. Apparently they'd like to do a third season, but as Matt Berry says, a proper, non-Covid-19 season where they can interact properly.What we do in the Shadows episode 7 last night. The Troll! It was both very funny and possibly the moment the show has 'jumped the shark'. I also really like the Colin character. When it first started, he annoyed me.
I really liked The Tudors. But if they've cut the naughty bits out then some of the episodes must be a bit short!PD: City of Angels seems to have stalled at episode 10. Is that it?
The Luminaries is confusing as hell. It jumps time worse than Westworld.
We've actually gone old school now and are watching The Tudors. I missed it the first time so it's fun to have something new which you know is highly rated.
The streaming service we have has cut all of the naughty bits out. Not sure if this makes it better or worse but we're enjoying it immensely. We're on Episode 9 of the first series. Wolsey has had his downfall, Henry's sister just died and the Pope is refusing Henry's divorce.
