Mrs Instigator and I watched S01E01 of GoT again yesterday. Quite surprising how many characters were introduced in first episode that are still involved in the latest episode. (I counted at least 14). Even so, so many are dead. soooo many.....,

I would not call her, for this or any other purpose.

I used to work with a guy when I was doing the coprorate accounting thing the boss's useless brother, who primarily used his desk to eat and wear sweatpants who would tease me for "having a Billie Piper hard-on" because I was a Doctor Who fan. I guess people like that must exist, but to me she doesn't get the blood flowing in that way.

Is she OK acting-wise in this?

funny thing about billie piper, i read that she's been winning theatre awards lately. i shit you not.

(and no, i don't like writing "theater". to me it reads like "teeter." roget can suck it.)

anyway supposedly she's a very good actress now.

but the first time i encounted her was as brona croft in penny dreadful. i thought she was very good as a tuberculose prostitute etc. a very dark and tormented creature. i didn't think she was a looker or anything but she does have something. is it the crazy mouth? i dont know.

i dont watch diary of a call girl for the looks of the girl, but because i need some adult content in my life. i dont mean "porn", i mean believable grownup situations of some sort, to keep me from regressing into thumbsucking i guess, or something, i don't know. it's not as fun as "hung" used to be, but it gives me 30 minutes of spacing out at the end of the workday and doesn't require heavy attention.

as for her acting there, it's apt. it's not really a melodrama, it's kind of a, hm, well, there's always an ironic detachment in the narrative, some comedy, some social satire, a little bit of drama, and she serves it well. but i wouldn't say this show is grounds for awards though.

i guess she works hard at her craft and you can see a progression? from rose to brona croft it's a huge leap i'd say. haven't seen her on the stage obviously.

Billie Piper started as a fairly generic pop star in the UK, so expectations about her acting when she went into DW weren't high. But while her character sometimes irritates me, she has some great scenes, where she definitely proves the 'Billie can really act' claims aren't just hot air or people over-compensating for their initial doubts.

No, I missed that one. I just read about it and it looks pretty interesting.

Where are you at with DW? Still getting through Series 2?

I just finished re-watching it but don't want to give away spoilers.

yeah still midway s2, just finished rickey-mickey (the age of steel). been trying to finish/returns some dvds first (dw comes online via amazon so no rush).

thanks for not saying anything about torchwood! or anything about anything really. much much appreciated.

i really liked penny dreadful. can be gory/disturbing so you should like it. also plenty of "adult matter". sounds like tailor made from you ha ha ha. now, don't expect a great masterpiece of anything, just good schlock for grownups. which, i understand, is very much your thing. dammit man, what are you waiting for?

I have a pile of DVDs I'm slowly getting through. I'm loathe to get any new ones until I've watched those.

Good luck to her. No doubt plenty of critics were ready to ridicule her move into 'serious' acting but the reviews of her in Yerma couldn't help praising her.

Yeah, I'm currently done with many, many series & eagerly awaiting the new seasons of, among others Dirk Gently, Star Trek, Gomorrah, et al. Started into a pretty decent Danish series called Norska, but so far only seeing 4 episodes out of 10 on the site I'm getting it from.....latest ep GOT was pretty good. Will be HBO'd in a couple days...

Started THE DEFENDERS on Netflix last night. Two episodes in and by far the most boring show of them all, so far. Maybe it'll heat up, but Jesus there's only 8 episodes! Hmpf!
