I've been watching "The Leftovers" on HBO.  I felt the first season kinda stumbled around until the final two or three episodes, and then finished very strong.  Season 2 has hit the ground running, and I'm excited to see where things are headed.  They've moved beyond the source material, and it will be interesting to see what the writers come up with.

All three are stellar.

I'm going to have to check those out. We have Amazon Prime but the internet connection is so slow here streaming shows can be a frustrating experience.

Not sure how I feel about the current season of Game of Thrones.  Wasn't going to watch it because it's ahead of the books now. But decided, especially after seeing the first two episodes this season, that there's enough difference from the books that it can be watched.  Throw in a feeling that Martin isn't actually going to finish the books before he dies, and I figured if I want any kind of resolution, I better watch the show.  Rethinking that after last night's death's and revelations.  I feel the events north of the wall in last night's episode would have been better served in print than on screen.  Does a disservice to the characters, the story, and the readers that have invested years in the books to have major plot points revealed on TV. Especially when it was revealed in the post show info segment that the events of the episode were Martin's plans, not something added or changed by the show writers.

Glad I decided to watch this season on GoT.  The Door and the Battle of the Bastards were two of the best episodes of the series.  

Finally started watching Peaky Blinders. Finished season 1, and two episodes into 2. Good, though I could do without the soundtrack.

Have a look on BBC iPlayer at The Living And The Dead.
 
The whole series (6 episodes) is available before TV transmission. Well worth watching - it will make you JUMP....

Are you up to date with the series (GoT)?  After last night's finale, I'm excited for book six to come out.  There's so much more going on in the books, I'm looking forward to how those story lines play out because they're going to be quite a bit different from the show.

^Agreed. My son and I love that second film. 
Introduced my nine year old to the first two films a couple of months ago, after he had told me that his grandad had let him watch the fifth film (Terminator genesis?) Apparently the fifth film is a 'reworking' of the first? (enter face palm emoji here)
The forth film is worth watching too imo - called Terminator Salvation - it's the terminator who doesn't know he's a terminator.

I just finished season 1, loved it! I don't know the comic on which it is based on but I love the series, well done Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg! I read that season 1 ends where the comic starts, so it's kind of a prequel to the comics.
Funny, refreshing, gory, well written, great characters (how do you come up with Arseface?)

I had to look up who you meant by Woody (because I did not know This is England). Cassidy indeed adds a lot to the show...

also noticed all the main characters are portrayed by British actors! (Ruth Negga was raised in Ireland)

Sorry about the Woody thing man, btw This is England is well worth checking out. Joe Gilgun's character is like a golden thread throughout he whole saga, even during the ( at times awful ) 1990 installment. He is a very underrated actor imo. His Dublin accent is excellent.

Pssst, don't refer to an Irishman/woman as "British" !!!!!!!!!!

They're trying too hard to capture the magic of the first season of E&D, but IMO wind up coming off more crude and vulgar than funny.  Danny McBride basically has one character, and it gets less funny every time he plays it.  

Also watching "Outcast" on Cinemax.  First episode was excellent, but it's kinda meandered since and been lacking in scares or skin crawling scenes since. But, higher production value and quality of cast means its a better product than Kirkman's prior TV ventures (TWD).     

Binge watched "Stranger Things" last week.  Really enjoyed it, but it probably coulda been an episode or two shorter.

Setterman, I hear you on McBride generally playing only a certain type. He does play it perfect though so no complaints from me yet.
I watched Outcast as well and somehow that show seems a bit like a mess. None of the characters I have found to be very engaging o far up to the point where I can't remember a single characters name.
Preacher on the other hand is surprisingly good. I say surprisingly because I am a fan of the comic and usually you can't like both. They changed quite a bit but overall the vibe of the show is the same as the comics. Can't wait to see the Saint of Killers arrive on earth.
And yes, the actor playing Cassidy is underrated he always delivers great performances whenever I see him on the screen.

I think part of the mess with Outcast is the dragging out of the reveal.  The season is close to winding down, and we don't really know what's going on or why.  I wonder if Kirkman doesn't either, since after 18 issues of the comic, readers are no further ahead than the viewers are?

Best 20 minutes of the show so far.  I don't think anyone has "menacing" down better than Anthony Hopkins.  And the reveal... though when he said "What door?" I knew something was up.  I've heard there was a clue to that secret in an early episode, in an old photo of Ford and Arnold.  Will have to look it up.    How crushing that revelation must have been for Theresa.  And what happened to Elsie?!

Yeah, there is a definite clue in that old photograph. If you observe closely, there is a curious empty space in the right side.
It does make a clear conclusion about what the other founders looks like.

I might just go back to previous 6 episode with the reveal in mind. In some scene we are following it from his perspective so the unreliable narrative is fascinating.

3 more episodes left, Iam pretty sure we will know Elsie's situation pretty soon. I really hope she is alive, too great a character to kill off.

Went back and looked up that photo last night after being told the reveal character was in it, but you're right, there's empty space in the photo like someone was there. The reveal character is probably in it, and isn't seeing himself.  

Agreed, a rewatch of the first six episodes is in order.

Hmmm... debateable... yes if you like that kind of thing.. Its typical Hanna-Barbera animation. Mike and his mystery team, the overtly camp Pinot Grigio drinking ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry, Mike's adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee and a filthy Pigeon solve banal mysteries. It probably reflects Mike Tysons life quite accuratley.
Its available via youtube in the US but im having to stream it via http://kisscartoon.io/Cartoon/Mike-Tyson-Mysteries-Season-3/Episode-2?id=69912" rel="nofollow - kisscartoon

Thanks for the heads uip on this one John. You sure Jeff Bridges in this? 

There's also a good modern westernish movie with Jeff Bridges last year called Hell or High Water. It's on one of the streaming services now. I think maybe Amazon.

I also thought for a second MS's second rate search engine Bing was streaming too. Then i assumed you meant binge..

I watched Don Letts 'Story of Skinhead' on BBC4 last night, its nothing we don't know or haven't seen before but still, some interesting characters.



The quality is a bit shit here^ UK-bro's can get it in glorious technicolour via the iplayer.

Altered Carbon on Netflix is a decent bit of sci-fi with surprisingly high production values & a good cast of characters. Definitely worth a punt.

Just Bing watched

Godless (Superb Western starring Jeff Bridges)
She’s Gotta Have It (Netflix series By Spike Lee)
SMILF (on Showtime)
Manhunter (Origin story of the FBI’s serial killer profiling unit)

So much good TV on demand these days.


Edit Godless stars Jeff Daniels NOT Jeff Bridges in perhaps his finest role outside of Dumb & Dumber.

Thanks for the heads up 00, just finished watching it on iPlayer. Lots of nice denim especially the first incarnation (late sixties).

I had a black Harrington jacket circa 1982, think l got my mum to sew on all these Two-tone patches on it.
Also had a donkey jacket from Field and stream, in Reading, about the same time.

Re- the racist side to skinheads: The only thing l remember is when l went to purchase my first MA-1, about a year later. The shop in the indoor market had several colours, but there were two types. Red lining models and oranges lined. My friends had informed me that the one with the red lining are for national front supporters/sympathisers so l opted for the orange lined model.

Obviously they weren't real ma-1's, just the usual cheap market knock off.
My first real military Ma-1 l bought from the Kenny market in 1987, after seeing Erasure wearing them on TotP , which by that time the skinhead, much like punks, were a dwindling minority.

Thanks for posting this, 00.  Watched it top to bottom and loved it. 

Hearing the reference to the Harrington jacket Ryan O'Neal's character wore on Peyton Place brings back memories of my mother's steam iron working non-stop with the black and white telly permanently tuned into the latest episode.

As someone who uses blade numbers to describe the haircut she wants, I appreciated the point this doc is trying to get across. 

Loved the musicology also...  The irony is that, in 1979, I can remember my fresh-off-the-boat Manchester-born boyfriend tearing out my brand new Specials cassette out of the deck, saying "what kind of shite is this?", tossing it into the back seat and replacing it with Van Halen.  Reasons why a girl shaves her head or, at least, shakes it ruefully.

Van Halen is the Specials with brown sauce on top.

Surprisingly, Amazon Prime is creating some really compelling television right now. I've particularly enjoyed The Man In the High Castle (based on Phillip K. Dick's alternate history of postwar America) and Patriot, which is a both incredibly funny and sad story about a U.S. intelligence officer who copes with his depression by writing and performing folk songs while trying to stop Iran from developing the bomb.

I have one more episode of Gomorrah season 3 to watch, I’m really enjoying this. I’ve been trying to watch Jordskott season 2 but am struggling, I think the episodes are too long. Glad to see the Walking Dead back too.

I'm always a little behind the times, but have just caught up with the current series of 'This Country' on BBC iPlayer.

So sad, so true. It made me feel uncomfortable and yet at home, all at the same time. A bit like The Office.
Plus it was location-spotting heaven for me being a 'local'.

Such a refreshing change to the usual Costwold stereotypes.


A Dr_H sorry.. l mean Doc_Heech recommendation.

Ive been reminiscing while watching all the classic Levi's ad's today, circa 1970's-90's.
I think we had a few adverts that ran here that didn't actually air over in the states (i could be wrong) the 'Jeremy Sisto/Prince Buster/Earthquake' for instance?

What the heck happened to the evocative Levi's advertising campaigns like this? When the men were equally as attractive as the ladies and it was perfectly acceptable to help them into your rig via a firm shove on the bottom.



Would still sell jeans today in my opinion.... The swimmer, The laundrette, Levi's were killing it! It was an hour well spent.

I thoroughly enjoyed this:



Seems of possible interest to Double0 and Dr Heech. Apparently there was another documentary about Goldsworthy in 2017, looking forward to watching that as well.

True Detective season 3. I’ve only seen 2 episodes but so far it seems to be on a similar level to the fantastic season 1 rather than the lamentable season 2.

Think i'll watch that Attenborough Climate Change thing later..

In other news, the boy and i watched Stand by Me the other day, that still holds water, i haven't seen it since i was his age.

We're into these 'boyhood' type films recently, Son of Rambow and such, if anyone has any other recommendations of a similar ilk, i would appreciate it?

The Kid who would be King is quite enjoyable. Also, The Sandlot.



EDIT: Not a film but don’t forget Malcolm in the Middle!
