Has anyone watched Sesaon 1 yet? This is brilliant stuff -from Britain.
Have season 1, haven't got to it yet but I'm looking forward to it. "Ripper Street" is another period series from the UK which is well done.
yeah people I know cant shut up about it, gotta check it out
I've seen Ripper Street ...why do the Brits do this kind of thing so well?
American stuff looks over-baked.
The Brits just do a kind of light tap on the dramatics & it has more impact.
Action sequences are tighter and better staged, too.
Jerome Flynn is so good on that show, next series starts in about a month.
Not really a fan of old timey....I think I'll wait for the end of season,check rotten tomatoes and then power watch it
Definitely, working on seasons 2 of Copper & Orphan Black, will have to queue this up
I've heard good things about this one...I'll be checking it out when time allows.
I just watched s01 e01 yesterday. I thought it was pretty interesting... I'll watch a few more episodes. The barmaid/ informant seems like an interesting character.
I got robbed by a sweet old lady on a motorized cart!
I didn't even see it comin'!
This song was one of my favorites on the Django Unchained soundtrack...
The Brits are the masters of the subtle understatement.......
Curious.....Sam Neil had a very influential part on
"The Tudors"......When did he jump across the pond?
Very impressed with your knowledge and correct spelling of the "Get in Line" Word...Cheers!!!
Im just finishing up with Blacklist. [EXCELLANT]
Just stumbled on to the 2007 HBO 5-episode series "Five Days." Don't know how I missed it back then but The Brits really do know how to craft these kinds of intense dramas. Ditto BBC's "Broadchurch" also excellent which I see Fox has adapted into a US version "Gracepoint ." The downside is that sometimes you'd welcome on screen translations.
By the way, this thread is Howard related because lead actor Cillian Murphy ("The Scarecrow" in BATMAN BEGINS) in "Peaky Blinders" once played a cross-dresser in the movie PEACOCK.
I'd always thought Sam Neil was from Britain originally. He really adds class to this series.
Also in the 5th episode, Tommy Flanagan of "Sons Of Anarchy" shows up as a right bastard of a villain.
Is this on BBC America? They're very good with repeating...
Its on Netflix streaming.
Never heard of it,,,,title seems awkward to me
