TV shows and the like. Just started watching The Returned (Les Revenants), a French Twin Peaksy drama series about a bunch of coach crash victims who return from the dead to their Alpine town. Neither the victims nor the townsfolk know why this has happened. The drama is played completely straight, I think that's why it's so gripping. Two episodes in so far. Denis you been watching?

Copenhagen Cowboy is some real dark shit - at the same time though good art - foreign film Danish I think about Albanian whore gangs and psycho killers - nice dark synth wave soundtrack

The Last of Us is pretty good so far

Source material is a video game?

Well I'm impressed. I remember you listed a lot of your shows one time and it was quite the resume

Episode 6 was the highlight of the whole series. I believe she got a nomination based just on that episode?

Congrats on your work, keep us posted on where else to find you.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 12/31/2022 : 23:26:43
My mistake, I'm in episode 6, in the office next to her. That seemed to be a much longer scene when we shot it. They only used a tiny second of it.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 12/26/2022 : 15:11:43
One shot I am next to Liz, and I reach over and talk to a coworker after she gets up, and another shot I am in a different outfit, across from that previous spot, kind of behind a computer, typing away...No idea if you'll be able to see me though I do remember the camera being right at me! That was a really exciting day.

No kidding? Can't wait to check it out when it comes out. I'll look for you.

Fleishman (thumbs up) is great, funny and painful

Harry and Meghan (thumbs up) curious to hear what others think of these people. I found it an interesting show.

Andor (thumbs down) has its moments but overall just more mediocre SW fan fiction. I think a good name for a show would be ďAnd/orĒ

Into season two of Colombo. Brilliant

Just finished the new Netflix series 1899 - wow! Drags on a little bit sometimes but if you stick with it there are rewards - even though the ending is kind of predictable it was still pretty epic and the whole thing is a cinematic masterpiece with some great acting. Think Lost on a ship. No more spoilers other than to say Emily Beecham is pure sex.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 12/02/2022 : 07:41:58
STARTED THE SHIIIIEEEEELD!! I've been trying to make this happen with my fiance for YEARS!

No spoilers. NONE. That's all!

The Forgotten Battle on Netflix is a pretty good WW2 drama - if you liked 1917 which isn't a bad film then this is better - a snapshot of the lives of some people at the end of WW2 - set mostly in Zeeland and featuring a 50:50 of English and Dutch/German - not too much to make it a chore reading the subs though. Focuses more on the characters and individual lives than the politics of the war - got more substance to it than 1917 - very moving at the end. Terrifying also to think that this hole of corruption over in the Ukraine right now is filled with Nazi battalions and god knows what else now running around with a ton of our dirty money and all sorts of weapons, so strange and uneasy times to be watching stuff like this. But check this out anyway it's very good.

Finished this the other night, thoroughly enjoyed it. Wasn't sure exactly where it was heading until the last couple of episodes but didn't expect it to head in the direction it did - which is a great credit to the writing. Agree on the acting quality, all good and nice to see Trevor from Eastenders again - he was great in Chernobyl! The mum / son relationship was intense, as a parent to a non verbal autistic child myself, I found myself relating to some of those emotions. I digress but yeah Peter Capaldi character very interesting - I hope there will be other seasons / spin offs / prequels or sequels - there's a lot that could be explored.



It surprised me towards the end at how deep and intruiging it all was turning out to be. I though Jessica Raine gave an amazing hearfelt performance - I think I started to fall in love with her while I was watching it actually. The final episode was actually a little bit emotionally difficult to deal with in such a profound way - it basically took an interesting ontological hypothesis and ran with it - I'll be very interested to see what the producer of this series does next? Some guy called Tom Moran - I wonder if any relation to Bob Moran (the disgraced political cartoonist who was sacked from the Legacy Media for not following the narrative on COnVID; who is now 10 also times more famous/notorious and probably making more money than he did before anyway)? Funny seeing Steven Moffat as one of the exec producers on this too - he ruined Doctor Who basically so no idea what his involvement with this project was? Shite people can sometimes become good people

Defo one to hit up for a second helping I'd say

Still waiting for Chernobyl to come up on a Netflix or summat - Trev from Eastos is bad ass

Ah Colombo, love it. The episodes with guest appearances from Johnny Cash and Billy Connolly are two of my faves.

The Devil's Hour is soo good. Just watching it on Am Prime now - I'm only on ep 5 so still no idea what the twist in the end will be, but I'm sure there will be one? They just played "I Know There's An Answer" by The Beach Boys which sounds a lot like Hang On To Your Ego (something I've never noticed or realised but no doubt is common knowledge round here - it's the same freaking song but with different words) Or am I just tripping out man - this series is extremely weird and dark and menacing but also weirdly more positive and very ambiguous - some kind of psychological thriller with elements of The Shining in it (owing to a very talented child actor performance from the young boy) All the acting is outstanding, so it doesn't matter that you can't really follow the plot and it jumps back and forward in time a lot (something that tends to put me off things but this series gets away with it in a very interesting and creative way) If only Peter Capaldi had beed more like this in Doctor Who it might have been worth watching. Reminds me of his performance in an episode of Psychos (edgy offbeat Ch4 drama set in psych ward in late 90's in Glasgow that got cancelled after real psych professionals complained - so we didn't get a second series!) Jessica Raine, the guy who played Trevor the wide beater in Eastenders in the early 00's? Big fat hairy cop now who likes to bend the rules, would be perfect for a reboot of Cracker I think he's not a cop to be messed with? Sylvia Chambers, Ravi Dhillon and others. Top notch

Ugh I watched the first one of that - bit too 50 shades of gay for me. Then in episode 2 it went all flashbacky and I got bored and tuned out. Preferred the Dennis Nilsen one with David Tennant

We're watching the stupidly named Dahmer: Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story on Netflix.

It's mostly REALLY good. Very well made. Scary and suspenseful and kind of morbidly funny with some great performances. What annoys me is after I watch an episode I look up what was fictionalized and that always irritates me. And the truth is always more crazy/funny/ironic/fascinating than the fake stuff these kinds of shows make up. Why not just do it as truthful as possible?? Worried the story of JEFFREY DAHMER isn't interesting enough?!?

Thatíll be it then
Troubles A Foot Posted - 09/18/2022 : 12:14:04
I'm googling it but all I really see is that the actors just joked about spinoffs in interviews, and that AMC was hoping for a Mad Men spinoff. But nothing actually serious.
pot Posted - 09/18/2022 : 09:06:01
There was talk of a Mad Men spin off but I guess it got binned for whatever reason - I think they were talking about something with Joan?
Troubles A Foot Posted - 09/18/2022 : 08:05:39
The thought never occurred to me of even wanting/needing a Mad Men spinoff...I feel like generally all the character arcs felt pretty concluded in an emotional sense.

I've always wondered what Matthew Weiner's next show The Romanoffs was like. It got pretty bad reviews, as did a film he made right after Mad Men. I wonder what happened? I swear one day I will watch The Romanoffs.
pot Posted - 09/18/2022 : 00:00:05
Mad Men is pure class - thoroughly enjoyed that show - disappointed we never got a spin off though?
Troubles A Foot Posted - 09/17/2022 : 19:47:15
Yes...That is a show that will stick with you. I feel like me and my fiance bring up Mad Men every few days in conversation.
Bedbug Posted - 09/17/2022 : 19:10:15
Finally watching Mad Men and loving it
Troubles A Foot Posted - 09/13/2022 : 18:02:42
I want to watch that show very badly.

Watching and enjoying House of the Dragon. I'm not a big Game of Thrones fan but for some reason I was really in the mood to be in that world again and the show is well made and feels like back to what made the first several GoT seasons interesting.

We also just started The Prisoner, which is really cool so far.
Bedbug Posted - 09/13/2022 : 04:08:25
Succession won the big prize last night, and I would definitely recommend it for those who havenít seen it
pot Posted - 09/13/2022 : 02:52:36
Well I personally think Paddy Considine is nailing it playing King Visceris Targaryen in the new GoT series House Of The Dragon. I mean, the guy is usually pretty much amazing in anything heís in - especially Dead Manís Shoes - a very adept and versatile actor indeed. All hail the king!

Totally forgot about the GoT Panto as well lol - very good latest ep 4
Bedbug Posted - 09/06/2022 : 03:08:07
The Humanity Bureau starring Nic Cage.

Cage makes about 5-6 films a year these days, and this one is a bullseye. Dystopian government conspiracy mystery fabric of time love story sentimental confusion. 90 minutes well spent

Finished Severance, really loved where it went. I highly recommend.

I have COVID this week and feel miserable. You'd think it would be a good time to watch a lot of movies or binge a TV show but my fiance is so busy she can't really do much, and it's hard thinking of stuff to watch without her that she's not interested in. And the stuff I do watch without her isn't that great. So it's been kinda shitty.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 08/27/2022 : 10:19:28
Checking out Severance. Two episodes in and enjoying it. But part of me thinks "this should have just been a movie" and I also wonder why they use CGI for stuff that would be so much more effective practically, like black goo dripping down someone's desk. Just put some goo on it! Jesus christ. Laziness.
