Much as I love Gene Hunt, whenever I've seen Glenister interviewed he seems terribly 'actor-y' and a bit grumpy.

'Actor-y'? Well he is an actor. If he was a greengrocer he'd be terribly greengrocer-y.

I've liked the interviews I've seen him do. He's very dry and also seems really quite grateful for any compliment or praise he's given.

Though I may be quite biased as I find him schmex-y.

I loved the numerous utterances of that in last night's episode (Season 4, episode 2), as well as the parallel created between him and the street kids. Season 4 has got off to a great start.

When the US version of The Office firsdt aired here in the UK, I watched the first one and wasn't that impressed and so didn't watch many more.

Thanks (a thousand times) to the Paramount Channel for showing it recently, I started watching and it is brilliant.

Yesterday, the last one they are showing (for now I hope) was Casino Night.

If you've seen the show, you know which moment I'm talking about, but I don't think I've ever felt my heart stop watching whilst a TV show like that before. It was amazingly done. I shed a couple of tears.

I'm tempted to buy the next series on DVD. I must know what happens next!

He's brilliant, easily one of the top three characters in the show (Stringer jusssssst pips him in my opinion, based one having seen three and a bit seasons of the show).

Season 3 is my favourite so far, though I have high hopes for Season 4.
*


Fo' real. I just finished S.3. Great great stuff. There are so many complex and unique characters in the show even minor ones e.g. Bubs (still one of my favs), Cutty, Prez, Bodie, Brianna, Prop Joe, Judge Phelan, Cheese (aka. Methodman and his funny walk) and the genuinely scary Brother Mouzone. I'm glad Frankie Faison finally gets a good role but for me, the King of Season 3 is Colvin. With the likes of him and Freamon, the show gives older (and younger) African-American actors a chance to shine. I don't know any other show which compares in this respect, really.

Clay Davis is an interesting fellow and will be interested to see more of him in S.4. And the Marlo people like the funny wee boy-girl, Snoop. She chronic, y'all. That is street slang BTW. I also think Carver is very handsome and when Officer Collichio (with his stupid hair) appears on screen, I want to sing "Jaaaayne the man they call Jaaaayne ... "

BTW Carcetti in his speechifying reminds me of Eddie Murphy doing Kennedy impressions in "Bowfinger" or Mayor Quimby ... hehe. Maybe just me.

I finished Season 5 a few weeks ago. You will not be disappointed. McNulty's storyline is especially strong, the show definitely benefits from scaling his role back in season 4.


I look forward to it. I really do.
maian
Bodie has become something of a favourite character for me, even though he's not really all that important. There's something about someone who is so low down in an organisation who just gets kicked around the place that I find interesting and I have tremendous sympathy for him.

Snoop's great as well (the first time I saw her it took a good couple of minutes before I could determine if she was a boy or a girl) and she gets a great little moment early on in Season 4 that had me in stitches.

Recently finished watching series 4. It's a slow burner, and that's saying something for this show!

I thoroughly enjoyed it, not as good as S3 but on a par with S1 and S2. However, I thought it got a little preachy at times with the "special class" thing.

I love the way it can take the focus of someone who is seemingly a major character for pretty much a whole series, in this case McNulty, and still retain the arcs which are now into their 5th series.

The Many Happy Returns episode of the Prisoner has to be my favourite. The ending gets me every time.

Watched new comedy The Inbetweeners on E4. It's co-written by Iain Morris and has Robert Popper as script editor. It's about a group of 17 year old 6th formers seeing out the last half of their teenage years and their comical antics along the way.

Purile, rude, un-PC and occasionaly disgusting...however, very funny. Some great one liners, visually entertaining and great to see something with teenagers that isn't about 'issues and tears'. It's not for everyone but if you like to just switch your mind off and enjoy a bit of childish fun then you could do much worse than this.

I only caught the first one of the double bill but despite my initial misgivings and the repeated use of Kate Nash on the soundtrack I thought it was pretty damn funny. The main character borrowed a hell of a lot from Mark from Peep Show however, but hey, that's a funny character so it can't be all bad.

I thought it was rubbish, to be honest. I hate episodes of HIGNFY where the rest of the panel are so clearly annoyed at the antics of one of them and Blessed was just very annoying.
Raven
I didn't get that from it at all, if anything I thought Merton and Hislop where playing along with it.

I've not laughed that much at HiGNFY for an age though, and I've never heard the audience applaud that loudly at the end either, so it goes down in my book as a good 'un!

(I particularly liked his reading of the Grangemouth strike headlines and the dress up round - brilliant!).

Will is already a great comic character. The second episode was even funnier but if you want to catch it it's on E4 again on Wednesday (7/5).

Derren Brown's back - whoot! I wish I could memorise all my psychology handouts and biology notes using the method Derren had that man use, but I'm betting I wouldn't do it right.

Am I turning into a woman. I've just been watching soaps all week. There's this tragically bad one on BBC1 (after Doctors...which is also terrible) called "Out of the Blue" which seems to revolve around a murder case. It's been commissioned by the BBC and is filmed in Australia in a cynical attempt to replace Neighbours (Which also wasn't good)...and WHAT THE HELL IS FALCON BEACH? It's like The OC but with ANY shred of plot removed! Or good looking characters. Or anything! and I don't like the OC! I've spent this week watching programs that I don't like what's wrong with me?


















Corrie's good though.










So's Hollyoaks.
















I'm going to go and hang my head in shame!

I've just finished watching Flood on ITV1, it was pretty scary when you think about last summer (I live in Hull and we've only just stopped panicking when we get heavy rain!)

Yeah, you're right, pretty scary.

Pretty scary how atrociously bad the film is - I had the misfortune to waste two hours of my life on that dross when it came out to rent on DVD. So bad it was almost hilarious. Tom Courtenay's performance made me want to chew tin foil, fillings be damned.
Wife Of Rolex
I didn't watch Flood as I was watching the Snooker instead, along with intermitant flick overs to Indiana Jones on BBC1.

But I did occasionally switch over on the off chance I would catch the scenes where London was flooded by the tidal wave. Can't say I was too impressed by the bits I saw. It was a bit over dramatic as far as I could tell and not that great CGI either. I caught one scene where a helicopter was hovering over some big waves and it looked like a bloody toy held up close to the camera. It was that bad I was expecting the finger and thumb holding it to accidently come into shot.
Twinkle
Yeah I agree the CGI was pretty ropey and I must admit I didn't watch it from the beginning but it did keep my attention which isn't easy to do as I'm always channel hopping. The fact that Robert Carlyle was in it probably helped matters - he's looking good for 47 smile.gif

You know I never found it funny once, no tell a lie, I laughed when I saw Meg for the only time she was in it. I do usually love Family Guy and whilst I did enjoy the design staying truthful to SW, the explosions were fab, the comedy there was just boring for me, bit of a let down.

A lot of work obviously went into to it, and as a recreation of Star Wars it was excellent. But it had 1 laugh maybe at most. Still, funnier than the Stewie Griffith Story.

Thats what I mean, the recreation of SW was all there, it looked good it was just let down by the lack of comedy which was a shame because I was expecting a good few laughs. Obviously George Lucas' disapproving voice of authority mustve red penned a load of jokes in it otherwise it couldve been good, personally, just a let down for me.

We aren't particular fans of Family Guy in my house. We saw part of Blue Harvest and thought it very funny. Maybe Family Guy fans were (at least subconsciously) expecting something more like Family Guy & this just was another animal completely.

Parallel Worlds Parallel Lives

Imagine spending 20 years under the same roof as your father, but never really knowing him. Then imagine discovering your father came up with the theory of parallel universes, and then (after leaving academia because no one took his work seriously) effectively talked Eisenhower out of World War III. Imagine discovering that your father was a genius so far ahead of his time, that people will only truly start to appreciate his contribution to science fifty years from now.

Mark Everett's quest to discover his father, was truly extraordinary. The look on his face when a gleeful physicist (so excited to meet the great man's son) puts his father's work on a par with the theory of relativity or Newton's Law, was a joy to behold.

As Mark sat in a cemetery at the end of the documentary, he ponders that if he'd known all this about his Dad before, he probably wouldn't have bothered with the music. He quickly thinks better off this remembering that, "those physics guys don't get as many girls as rock stars". Before settling on the certainty that his father, "was a rock star of physics".

Oh, and he's just some guy called 'E', who formed some band called 'Eels'.

I caught the repeat of The Inbetweeners last night, and despite it being clunky and horribly embarrassing to watch at times, it was somewhat charming, and featured an improbably funny gag about paedophilia (to us anyway). It also featured Greg Davies from We Are Klang who I think is brilliant.

Are you watching it on FX? If you are, I'll try not to put my big foot in it and spoil anything for you.

I really enjoyed the Prez arc, mainly because it's something in one of my favourite shows evoh to which I can relate. The rabbit in the headlights feeling when up in front of a "bad class" for the first time; the realisation that they're not all bad and trying ways to get them working.

It's when shows like The Wire get low ratings and various talent shows top the charts that you start to realise we live in a world designed for idiots.
