We watched Mildred Pierce, but yes, it's a bit slow isn't it?




Did you carry on watching to the end? It didn't get any faster. They could have told the same story in half the time. It was interesting in places but ultimately I don't think it was worth the time spent watching it.

nope. gave up on it. it was mike from neighbours i think. his face got to be too gaunt to continue watching.


falling skies by the way, is execrable. it makes the v reboot look like i claudius.


tv is very poor at the moment - only breaking bad s4 and curb s8 on naughty download are keeping me going.

Did you catch up on all the Mad Men episodes you hadn't got around to then?


Have you tried the US version of the Killing? I keep putting it on but it doesn't hold my attention - partly cos I know mostly what's happening but also cos it's so ponderous. I would have expected it to be a bit more lively cos it's condensed into less episodes - but they seem to spend all there time reflecting on how serious and bleak everything is. Weird cos the original kept you interested and at the end of each episode something happened that piqued your interest or made you want to come back for more.

I'm going to give that Borgias thing a go. It's not HBO but hopefully it's a bit better than some of the stuff that's been on lately.

Started watching S01E01 of Spiral. It's all right.




Did you watch the whole of the first season? Any good? They're starting to repeat it from the beginning from tonight on BBC4 - I wouldn't have hesitated but my previous attempt at watching it from season 3 or 4 or whatever it was left me cold so it's put me off a bit. Hopefully it's better from the very beginning.

We watched the first two, but then couldn't be bothered with the rest. I'm still not sure why. I guess it just didn't grab us.

I get the impression that some of the people who watch BBC4 are just congratulating themselves for being so sophisticated that they watch foreign language TV shows, regardless of how good those shows actually are.


The same with films. I recently watched some French film on BBC4 on the basis of the 4 or 5 star review that Radio Times gave it. The film turned out to be wholly unremarkable - I swear that they had given the rating an extra star or two purely because it wasn't in English.

So it turns out that the US version of the Killing that just finished on 4 was actually not the whole story. I was watching it thinking "hang on, they must be changing quite a bit if there's only two episodes left and they haven't done blah blah yet" - then it turned out that the end of the season wasn't the end of the story. Bit rubbish.
