Another issue with Carnival Row, why the annoying accents, it’s a fantasy land why has the main fairy got to have a comedy Irish accent?
I agree - was good but could have been more tension etc... however even the wife got quite into it.The Spy (Netflix series)
A serious role for Sasha Baron Cohen (Ali G)
I often wondered what he would do next after Grimsby which I found hilarious at times.
I so wanted to like this series which I binge watched over the weekend.
Seeing Gideon Raff (Homeland) on the credits got my hopes up.
It's based on the true story of Eli Cohen and although quite good and well acted it didn't seem to generate much tension in the script writing.
Unless I'm watching a documentary I try not to spoil my enjoyment by looking for minor problems, its a slippery slope and the next thing you know you're on the Dunkirk thread frothing because some one had their boots laced up wrong. To be fair neither Orlando Blooms mockney gangster or or Cara Delevingne's Irish-ish accents were the high point in their performance but as it was a fantasy does it really matter.Another issue with Carnival Row, why the annoying accents, it’s a fantasy land why has the main fairy got to have a comedy Irish accent?
My wife is on season 6 and she reckons the quality hasn't dropped, I lost track after season 4 so only catch the occasional episode. I have to say James Spader's performance is always first rate, he was great in Boston Legal but he's even better in Blacklist.The back half of Season Three of "The Blacklist". What can I say, it's brilliant. Just the right amount of twisty.
Just wait a few episodes she has them out in a magnificent display of sulking to piss her dad off.I must admit, I got a hard on in E01 when she starting laying down the law to the drilling company CEO and threatened to liquidate them and sell their shares to big oil for peanuts...as a former oil industry employee, shit like that gets me knee shakin'!
That and she has a cracking set of chesticles.
ETA: Fantastic scenery, part of the US I haven't seen yet, but as they are not in the EU and neither are we, I'll never get the chance as visa's and muh. Good job I had to get a 10 year visa on the back of my last job.
BBC should just do box sets like they with a few of the series...like Netflix. I can't be bothered to keep a schedule for one I like...if I have a day off, would rather binge watch.I'm liking the BBC's The Capture and ITV's Confession at the moment but hating the One Per Week schedule.
Mentioned before but the Danish Series Those who kill which is on Iplayer has some top notch twists in it.
That one has been on a couple of times, these shows come back round on occasion. I really like Rich Hall's stuff, always interesting and a good watch. I sometimes think though, that young Richard isn't always a fan of his home country.Currently watching "Rich Hall's Inventing the Indian". Stand fast, earth, this one is about the way that white culture in general, and Hollywood in particular, constantly misrepresent and slander the people that the white folks stole the land from. His rant on how John Ford got ten things wrong about the Apache in just one scene from "Stagecoach" is a particular treat. Christopher Columbus also comes in for a well-deserved goolie-kicking.
I don't think it's on iPlayer, the version that's on YouTube has no audio - thanks Auntie!, but it may be available on Dailymotion. It is well worth seeking out, even if you find a version that's got really crap video it is a good background listen.
Is it a rehash of the recent series, extra footage included etc?Warship: Under Attack
HMS Duncan, Syria, Skripal poisonings in the background, increased tension with Russians. Approach by Russian naval helicopter which ignored caution three times. A hand held camera on HMS Duncan revealed that a photographer was on board, so basically having a nose and their ships captain testing reactions. Situation could have escalated.
Two sausages in white baguettes! Outrageous! Wholemeal or granary would be far better.
An excellent programme. I found the Scapa Flow section towards the end very interesting - I didn’t realise the German skeleton crews on board the ships did their own scuttling as soon as the British were otherwise engaged. Fascinating stuff.Dreadnoughts on Channel 5 & it featured heavily the museum ship USS Texas which is now the only surviving example of the Dreadnought era building of warships of circa WW1 vintage - she took some hammer from the German batteries off Cherbourg in WW2 in Operation Overlord but gave as good as she got ..
