Midsommar was excellent. It felt like a odd mashup between The Shining - with the careful camera work and set design, and Wickerman. Just started 'Gentleman Jack' -- and I'm worried I'm not going to like it... Mostly because I suspect it's just another drama consciously and/or obliviously glorifying classist hierarchies and the over-representation of the rich and privileged in media. But who knows. Maybe the narrative won't be blind to it's weak points -- and it'll be better than an uncritical HBO production of Downton Abby with an added slice of gay.
If Alexander was taking a very rough or bad retake on the series - this might be more of a good sign than a bad one, since Fuller and Green were actually doing a fantastic job. (If we want to take a very optimistic take on this news). But yeah - the instability can't be good for the future of this series. And yeah, my gut is telling me that actors rewriting dialogue doesn't sound promising at all. (Unless we are talking about an incredibly rare species of actor). It tickles me thinking that McShane and Alexander were screaming at each other on set.
