Just got through watching "Curse of the Oak Island", first season on Netflix and gotta say it was interesting documentary. Was curious if they ever made anymore, unfort Netflix wouldn't show any or even in DvDs. So that was upsetting.

Checked on Vudu, they wanted way too much money to watch it, there are some clips on youtube. Anyway gf and I decided to go buy the dvd collection from amazon, isn't that expensive. At first they were low in funding the expeditions, started to get more interesting on that last part of season one. At the last part of season one, it got really interesting.

So it look like many manage to add more funds to the program and keep pushing on. If you guys like true event documentary, this show might suit you. All this is about lost treasures that left behind by many theories for more than 220 years that was buried there.

Anybody watching/following "Bates Motel" on Netflix? It´s like watching Twin Peaks, always something new in each episode.

I thought this was a good descriptor of the story continuity in general too.

Two great scenes from that movie: Jamie Lee Curtis' exotic dance and taking out a whole floor with the minigun from an AV-8B.

Absolutely, mainly because James Cameron used real stunts, models and in-camera effects. It looks like it was made three years ago.

I am not sure that is entirely correct young roza17. For example, I personally can't explain C++.

But thanks for providing us with your view of the, always interesting, C++ conundrum.

C++ is much more complete than C--.

Started watching Catherine the Great with Helen Mirren. Only four parts which is a bit of a shame. One episode in and I'm not too sure what to make of it.

Helen Mirren is of course a commanding presence on screen - although she appears to switch between a German accent (Catherine was a German princess) and English. There is also a good supporting cast - Gina McKee and Rory Kinnear in particular.

I don't know anything about Catherine and so will treat this like I did Versailles and Victoria and just use it as a base from which to read up after each episode to check for accuracy. So long as the story is entertaining I don't mind doing that and at least get some knowledge of historical characters I only otherwise read about at high level as part of something else. These monarchs are too important to be ignored.

And looking at it from the cerebral, intelligensia angle, I can confirm that there does appear to be sufficient portrayal of 18th Century Russian BBBEEEWWWBBBBSSS!!!!

The Capture - available on BBC iplayer

Hummed and ahhhed about whether I could be bothered to watch this but finally took the plunge last night....

....6 hours later I'd watched the whole series in one sitting! Whoops.

Somewhat far fetched but no less gripping for that - and certainly makes one think. Each episode left me with that "just one more" feeling and I had to give in despite work the next day.

And as if the story wasn't excellent enough, there was also the luuuvvveerrlllyy Holliday Grainger in a starring role.

I've been catching up on some old Morse, Marple and Foyle's War episodes. It's great to see some of the 'before they were famous' actors and actresses that pop up from time to time. Alexandra Moen and Emily Blunt to name but two....

Just watched History of the World-Part I with the family.

We've made it a point to corrupt their youth as ours was so corrupted with Monty Python, Mel Brooks and Looney Tunes galore. Half the fun of having kids is exposing them to some movies that were very meaningful to you when you were younger.

Tonight the BBC are showing the first episode of a series set in WWII - although I think they made a mistake as they seems to believe it began in September 1939 and not December 1941....

No idea if this is going to be any good but there are two reasons for giving it a go:

a) it's set in WWII
b) it stars SHAAUUNNN BBEEAAANNNN!!!!!!

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/10012588/world-on-fire-bbc-drama-trailer-cast/

Fingers crossed it doesn't do a Titanic and totally stink the place out (in my personal opinion).


Eee-bye-gum, I wonder if I'll be beheaded again?


warspite1

Mmmmm.... one episode in and its erm... okay. There are a few 'obvious' things that grate - but sadly these are all too predictable and so I find I just have to ignore them. Overall though I think this is worth sticking with - and in Bean and Manville there are two great actor/actress on show. Perhaps the most shocking thing about the episode was Helen Hunt's face. Why oh why do they do that to themselves - grow old gracefully woman!!

warspite1

Episode 3.

Mmmm the characters in this series are interesting and the Harry/Kasia/Lois story is entertaining so its worth sticking with but the attention to detail is pretty shocking.

So Lois' brother joins the navy sometime (a few weeks) after Poland is invaded - and after a double quick basic training, is then apparently teleported to the South Atlantic so he can join HMS Exeter....

The scriptwriters are either youngsters or are simply writing for the social media generation. The radio broadcasts that Graf Spee is being hunted off Argentina (the British didn't even know the identity of Graf Spee at that time) and mentions HMS Exeter as looking for her! Immediately after the battle, with the cruiser on fire from stem to stern, the whole of Britain (except Sean Bean) knows she's been 'hit'.

Next there'll be podcasts from the Western Front.....

And of course investigating broadcaster Helen Hunt seems to have all the info on the T4 program, names, places and even gets to speak to the guy in charge.....

Come on guys - there's some good material here but please stop treating the audience like imbeciles.....

Considering the season, show some Meatloaf videos and then the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Especially the part where the redhead learns that she was eating meatloaf . . .

The Capture - available on BBC iplayer

Hummed and ahhhed about whether I could be bothered to watch this but finally took the plunge last night....

....6 hours later I'd watched the whole series in one sitting! Whoops.

Somewhat far fetched but no less gripping for that - and certainly makes one think. Each episode left me with that "just one more" feeling and I had to give in despite work the next day.

And as if the story wasn't excellent enough, there was also the luuuvvveerrlllyy Holliday Grainger in a starring role.


Thanks for pointing me in that direction. Will be watching that over the next few days.

Best wishes,
Steve

You're welcome - I hope you enjoy it. I may have another one for you too.

Just watched the first episode of Dublin Murders available on BBC iplayer too.

One episode in and it looks like another gripping series. There's a good cast too - including a very different looking Conleith Hill (Lord Varys (Game of Thrones)) Sarah Greene (Penny Dreadful) and Alexandra Moen (Fortitude). Killian Scott (Strike) who plays the 'English' detective in the main role is very watchable too.

Ok. Just watched the first episode of The Capture.

He did it. Bang to rights. Case closed.

Will watch the second episode later. And Dublin Murders now on my radar. Thanks.

Best wishes,
