Ripper Street- a Spook and a Sellsword

Recommended Posts

Season 3 started on the BBC yesterday I'm liking it so far - is there any follow-up on Shine or Flight though?

 

Don't remember about the Shine and Flight thingy.

 

[spoiler]Did you also notice Yoren? And the train wreck was set up nicely. - No, I'm not making fun of accidents.[/spoiler]

Yup she's had her moments but sometime's you've got to let a character go before they end up dragging the story down.

Also not to sure about Reid coming back, I love the character and actor but this is twice now he's made an exit isn't it? Unless it's a time skip and his daughter is now grown why is he coming back into the policing world?

Why hate on Susan herself when whatever is going on with her is the choice of the writers and director?

So often in all these series the showrunners really don't know what to do with women who have you know actual autonomy and agency.  So their solution is to make them insane, traitors and slaves to vices -- see, Copper.

When one says they are done with a character, the writing for that character is kind of implied to be the root of the problem no?

I hope they do better by the women -- Susan -- than has been done in the past episodes.  Particularly as this is a series that I like very much.

I just finished it.  It was another good season.  The finale is devastating, and ends on a cliffhanger.  Hard to see how they're going to do season 5.  It might continue minutes after season 4 but probably not.

It's 1897 and Queen Vicky's diamond jubilee.  Neville Longbottom is in it, and Matilda is 19.  Insert sexual pun about magic wands.

Long Susan isn't forced into it unbelievably, but they do a disservice in the writing with Rose.  Threlfall is terrific.

 

My favourite moment might have been Reid's subtle excitement at seeing new technology at the station for the first time and trying to figure out what it is.

I've yet to watch season 3. Amazon UK hasn't done a good job of promoting 4 as this is the first I've heard of it. Strange as they are always reminding me of "vikings", "turn" and "black sails". You think they'd know my MO by now.

Guess there's a good binge session on the horizon.

One thing I don't like about Ripper Street is common to a lot of shows -- that nearly every victim, villain and witness has a personal connection to the series regulars.  Enough with that trope, already!  Ripper Street goes a bit worse this season intertwining the cases with each other unnecessarily.  Still enjoyed it.

Thanks for posting the trailer for the final season - I didn't know it was back until I saw your post.

Just watched the first two eps.  Good stuff.
