  1. Humans (Channel 4/AMC)

    I see your point completely. Humans connects in a very different way, I think. Westworld has a vast scope, but Humans feels very much more intimate. I very much hope we'll get a third series too.
  2. Humans (Channel 4/AMC)

    Just watched season 2 on catch up. Very enjoyable season. If it's renewed: It'll be interesting to see. I hope it gets another season.
  3. BBC Terry Pratchett Documentary

    I agree, it was a lot less intrusive than I feared. I enjoyed it - although I would have liked it to be longer. Had a good laugh at the critic who said women would never read his books. Right-o!
  4. BBC Terry Pratchett Documentary

    Yes, the "docu-drama" element is a little concerning, but I'll still give it a go and hope it's not too intrusive.
  5. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    Agreed. I'm sure we'll just get more of the same except in America instead of England. There is no real narrative strength at work.
  6. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    Well, I am British but I struggled with the mumbling in the last episode even more than usual.
  7. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    I agree with you completely. And yes, ad-free TV is great. Well worth the licence fee. It's another reason why I tend to watch on demand so I don't have to have my attention constantly broken by commercials. Ugh.
  8. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    We found last night's episode a bit of a drag, to be honest If it doesn't pick up by next week, we'll probably knock it on the head. It started well but it's just too slow getting anywhere. Episode four and we should really be picking up a strong narrative, but it's still all broody walks and violence, wallowing in some threatened sexual violence and dream sex (seriously?). And as for the ridiculous caricature of the abusive husband that we're all supposed to hate for the sole purpose of cheering when he is undoubtedly killed (violently), it's just feeling like style over substance for me.

    He's is around a lot, although probably not as much as Olivia Coleman.
  10. Sherlock

    I'm pretty much with you (as is the OH). I thought the previous episode was overwrought and contrived, but this has to take the crown for that. It's a shame but it's derailed from its very bright and clever original series.
  11. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    I'm still finding it quite intrusive from some characters. It was Mark Gatiss, wasn't it. If I recall it's set in 1814 so it's George, Prince Regent (who becomes George IV in 1820).
  12. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    Agreed - I think that would work well.
  13. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    I've been wondering myself whether these elements will be 'real' or psychological. I'm not sure yet how I prefer it to go.
  14. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    I'll be honest that I find it annoying that writers have any and all characters swearing to show "they mean business" or "they are angry" - it's lazy writing. Having Strange swear when he threatened Delaney felt like a huge miss to me too. People can be menacing without swearing but it's always included now, whether such a character would swear or not. I suppose modern writers think it's edgy rather than thinking (as they should) about the language and culture of the character.
