a fictionalized account of germanic tribes resistance against the romans. not historically accurate, but i liked it

 


KLEO
a stasi assassin... eh, just watch the first episode. i'm liking it a lot.

Been loving the old-school horror anthology vibes of Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities, especially as it includes Henry Kuttner and HP Lovecraft stories... so cool.

Also watched the UK/Japan show Giri/Haji (sp?) Honor/Duty. Cool stuff, but a bit draggy

Also enjoying the latest inconsequential but entertaining round of British Bake Off

Well Atlanta is on Hulu exclusively as far as streaming goes, but if you get HBO you absolutely NEED to watch Succession. Emmy wins aside, it really is the best thing on TV

doing the new season of "the crown" on netflix which is, meh, so boring, but i'm already in the middle of the story so i might as well have it on.

Thar casting choice is weird for sure. Iím 1 episode in. Love the show but each season seems to lose a little something. Olivia Colman was good but Claire Foy was the best. Nice role for Matt Smith early on too

for me olivia colman was really the best. i mean in the role. i started confusing her with the actual one. not that they look the same, just it's hard for me with her to see a person acting, i just see the role.

otoh dana scully as margaret thatcher was hilaaaaarious. the way she spoke hahahaha. sounded like a stroke victim in recovery. i've watched thatcher footage and she didn't sound like that at all--she spoke fast.

All the actors seem to really study vocal patterns — see both Diana actors and all 3 Elizabeth actors in particular.
They really lean into vocal quirks, and Thatcher definitely had a bit of a … uh, dignified drawl? Honestly it never occurred to me that Gillian Anderson wasn’t nailing it but maybe she accentuated Thatcher’s here-and-there quirks a bit too much.
I dunno.

i don't know about quirks, but anderson... left... a massive... dead... space... between... each.... word... like... she's... searching... for... the next... thought... whereas thatcher strung long sentences and complicated ideas together with great ease.

she might have got the tone almost right, but definitely missed the rhythm. maybe it was not feasible doing both things at once--she's only human after all and impersonating someone is no easy task.

I'll put Derry Girls on my To Watch list then.
I need to finish the second season of Warrior Nun first. started with it before the football began, didn't really like it so far but perhaps it will improve. The first season had some sense of humor, the 2nd season is severely lacking it so far. And I forgot who all the characters were. They were crying that somebody died, and I had no clue who that was


Last night I saw the first episode of Star Wars Andor, the first two episodes were aired on TV. It looks very good. I hope they will show the full season, but I don't think they will. I think it's just a promotion stunt to get people to watch the remaining episodes on Disney channel, which I don't have.

OK, yeah, I see what youíre saying. She tricked me by nailing the tone, but she didnít quite land the cadence, eh. Oh well, she still did pretty well I reckon.

best show on netflix for me, right along with bojack. totally different shows, but both feature great writing before anything else is added.

i really hope you like it and laugh as much as i did, as we seem to have a similar appreciation of humor. there are aspects of this that are quietly demented and hilaaaarious. others get you in the gut by surprise. a great blend of comedy and drama. plus history close enough (for me) to have seen first-hand. anyway, great stuff.

i needed subtitles, otherwise it would all have been 100% incomprehensible to me, but by the end i got used to their accents. dammit, i miss them now. will likely rewatch it all.

I finally watched the entire first season of We Are Lady Parts yesterday, it's (only) 6 30 minute episodes. Recorded it from TV nearly a year ago. Season 2 is apparently in the works, not sure when (or even where) it will air.

If you have a chance, you should give it a try. It's a British dark comedy series about a bunch of Muslim women that start a punk-rock band.


Here's a 15 minute clip


update after actually watching that clip:
it actually looks like a pilot or something, the story is very much the same as the first episode, but some of the actors and scenery are different. Not the main characters though.
