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.


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,
Steve

Just watched the second episode and the thick plottens.

Still think he did it though, but someone is playing silly beggars with the CCTV.

Best wishes,
Steve

Lol - the thick plottens indeed . Well I won't say anything....

Meanwhile, just watched episode 2 of Dublin Murders and I have to say this is shaping up to be really good. That Sarah Greene is in it is a real bonus too....

I want to watch BBC The War of the Worlds, but for the life of me I can't find if it will play in the United States.
Anyone know any info? I would appreciate it.

Edit: I watched clips of the Spanish version, acting was so so, special effects were so, so - So I'm no longer that interested in watching it. Lots of so's in those poorly constructed sentences! Ha!

Just finished binge watching The Capture. Very entertaining and even had the obligatory evil Americans causing all sorts on mayhem on British streets.

And Yep.... told you he did it.

Best wishes,
Steve

PS. Dublin Murders next on my watch list.

Re-watched Firefly.

A masterpiece of a series.

To bad it was cancelled almost before it began.

Cancelling that series was a crime and proves, if proof was needed, that TV executives know little about entertainment.

After two weeks of total stress on the job, I’m relaxing myself by watching those videos on YouTube where people self-destroy themselves while attempting “acrobatics” (with skateboards, bikes etc.)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gilFDkj9SUw&t=18s

A nice way to let a bit of steam off

Watching the first of seven BBC programs entitled Spotlight on the Troubles. Never fun reading and viewing this desperately sad subject but this is the sort of conflict that the phrase "All we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history" could be written about.

As one former PIRA member said at the end of the 2nd episode; what a waste of time, what a waste of life.

Starting on Sunday 3rd November on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, His Dark Materials - an eight part adaptation of Phillip Pullman's first book in his epic science fantasy trilogy Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass.

Looking good from the trailers.

As I've started reading up on the Wars of The Roses I checked out some available programming on YouTube that is actually nicely done. Too bad the History channel in the U.S. doesn't include history programming anymore.
Ep1 The Mad King
Ep2 Warwick must go!
Ep3 The Princes must die!
Ep4 A Mother's love

I finished off the 5-part series Thatcher: A Very British Revolution.

What a truly riveting, well put together and thoroughly brilliant series.

Regardless of what one's politics are/were, what can't be denied is what an incredible person Lady Thatcher was. Its easy to forget the appalling state of the UK when she assumed office in May 1979, and just what a monumental disaster of an economy she had to sort out.

Love her, hate her, one thing was for certain, you couldn't ignore her.

But what really hit home was the age and varying stages of frailty of many of the contributors to the series. These were the politicians of my late teens and twenties....wow I feel old....

Lots of memories, many good, many bad and many sad.

Recommended viewing - especially for those of a UK persuasion - and in particular if you are at least 50 years old.

USMC F-35B or is the RN flying them yet? Aren't they scheduled to do so within a year or two?

I think that particular photo may have been taken last year after the first landing of a F-35B on Queen Elizabeth. It was a USMC F-35B flown by a British pilot training with it in the States. British F-35Bs from the RAF/RN 17 (Test and Evaluation Squadron) arrived on Queen Elizabeth a few days ago. At the moment there are six British F-35Bs on board. Yesterday they were joined by USMC F-35Bs for joint training.

The UK will declare Initial Operating Capability for Carrier Strike by the end of 2020. The first operational deployment for HMS Queen Elizabeth is due to take place in 2021.

The story is pure invention, it has nothing to do with Catherine, her life and the events that surrounded it.

There is a wonderful YouTube series called "Extra Credits" - basically a retelling of historical events and historical lives by using nice animations (funny cartoons, but it works). The run they did about Catherine the Great is among my favourites. Check it out:

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.

Well The Dublin Murders came to an end tonight and I have to say I found that thoroughly enjoyable, Sarah Greene was a delight to watch, Killian Scott is a fine actor, Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) was good value, but the surprise was at the end and a very, very fine performance from the baddie (don't worry no spoilers here )

Thanks for not revealing any spoilers and thanks again for recommending this series. I have watched the five episodes so far, will watch the sixth tomorrow. I have been enjoying the series hugely.
