Just seen the trailer.
I am filled with rage.
Slow burning true crime series about a murder in tiny desert community..
Real oddball folks living hundreds of miles from anything, and torn by a tragic event...
It's v v slow...but v good
Just started watching this and I love it. The bi polar mother is brilliantly played and the two main male characters also. It is sort of mundane - but wonderful for it. Many of the themes and topics could be such cliches but rise above it. Is it ok to draw prison tats on a baby with eye pencil>? First couple of episodes are a bit umm but once you get the patterns of it and the characters start to flesh out its a cracker.
Im just binge watching this, much better than I thought it was gong to be. Please dont tell me what happens in the end, I'm trying to maintain the suspense!lol
My goodness, they have some scenery and dark skies. 80miles for the Doctor, 200miles for a Mall, the Sheriff has 6198 sq miles.
here's a recomendation. go for a jog you obese cunt. then when you have lost enough weight to not break the rope, hang yourself
^ blimey... ANYWAY! Half way through Girlboss Girlboss (TV Series 2017– ) - IMDb and it's kinda charming. Being set in San Francisco really helps and there's a lot of the city in it. Here's a synopsis: "Sophia, an anarchist misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss."
I like the main character, she's very confident and also very unsure of herself, full of life and full of doubts. Sometimes annoying, sometimes fragile.
Based on a bestseller about some real stuff that happened
fashion is one of the most capitalist industries
I know it's well good init the ending is what it's about
It gets even more interesting once you read about the real Girlboss and how things haven't gone that well for her recently.
The real Girlboss: the rise and fall of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso
Discovered it today and already watched most of the first series. Pretty enjoyable.
Just finished Colony.
About occupied cities following a family who end up on either side of the occupation. Slow start, bit of a muddled middle, fairly predictable but definitely picks up towards the end, will have a strong start for series 2.
I'm watching that at the minute, it's good entertainment...
I watched it, thought it was ok but never quite clicked, you only see the family on the one side of the occupation and it's all a bit confusing what's going on and what different character's motivations are. Great cast and good production but I don't know if I'll watch S2.
It's ok, but feels a tiny bit uncertain on what angle it's going for. And if they've built fuck off big walls around major cities, what's going on outside them? Most of the country is presumably still open, surely that's where the real action would be going on?
And I have this niggling feeling that the whole "you never meet the aliens" premise is gonna backfire at some point. You can't string people on endlessly without ever meeting the little green men, and if that ever happens, surely it'll either vastly eclipse anything that's happened before, or more likely turn into an almighty anti-climax.
New season of Sense8 starting on 5th May
A shit episode of V
Was there more than one new episode around Christmas? I lost track a bit - and if so, any good?
Just the first season afaik.
there was an xmas special. I don't remember much about except dusty room moments and too much xmas drinking.
It's weird I'm sure I remember reading that the 2nd season was going to follow on a week after the Xmas special, I wonder if it got delayed for some reason
Just looking at what I've watched cos I'm about to recap with last ep of s1 - there was a crimbo thing "Happy Fucking New Year" - 2 hours long - had totally forgotten about that!
I remember Capheus being played by someone else. I'll have to watch it again before the new series comes out because I can't remember what happened.
He was replaced for falling out with the Wachowskis.
That's a shame, I liked his character more than most. Not really warmed to the new chap - I hate it when they recast but there's no change to the storyline, so they just expect you to pretend you haven't noticed. It's a bit jarring, messes with ones "willing suspension of disbelief".
I think he had a bit of an issue with the LGBTQ folk. That was certainly hinted at by Jamie Clayton.
Top of the Lake: Just watched first Ep, got bags of potential for being proper dark & twisted. New Zealand does this stuff well.
am watching that 13 reasons why thing and proper struggling to give a fuck about any of their shitty teenage problems
Second episode into Dear White People, it's quite good.
