The Vietnam War on BBC4.

Cracking documentary which took years to put together. 2 episodes last night with a lot of history pre-war, getting into the war itself next week...  it's on player for those of you who were watching the director's cut of Fast & Furious 12.

Vietnam was my least favourite country in South East Asia.

That Philip K Dick series on channel 4 is nothing short of twaddle.

Blade Runner/Minority Report adapted well to the big screen, but these are just short stories that don’t cut it.

Re: The good TV thread...

Re: The good TV thread...

Going to give it a try tonight. Not expecting much.

Re: The good TV thread...

I did not like it Shaun. You'll probably love it.

Noted.

Done the first three episodes of The Deuce - promising - classic David Simon feel to it - gritty and very character based with nothing much seeming to actually happen and then before you know it you'll be invested...

Re: The good TV thread...

...bit late to the party but really fucking enjoyed S3 of Narcos.

Probably helped by the fact that, enjoyable as they were, I had a fair idea of where S1 & 2 were headed and wasn't really clued-up on how post-Escobar/Cali events played-out. Terrific understated performance from the fella that played Jorge too.
Only disappointment was that Shea Wigham's (Nucky's brother Eli from 'Boardwalk..') appearance was so fleeting, one of the best around that needs a lead part sharpish IMO.

So gutted when I'd finished it I dived straight into El Chapo...

Agreed on all fronts mate.

Competence is such an exotic bird in these woods that I appreciate it whenever I see it.

Re: The good TV thread...

...got me sidetracked watching Boardwalk clips now, really miss that series.

How fucking great was Eli?

Re: The good TV thread...

I have done an 'Eli' on a few Mondays over the past 18 months.

Complete capitulation.

Re: The good TV thread...

yeah, he was great too.

Not sure Boardwalk didn't get more love. I thought it was top tier telly throughout.

That guy - Michael Sturlberg I think - was so obsessive over his character in BE, he read literally everything he could get his hands on about him and started helping the writers out with how the real person he's based on would have behaved / what he would have said etc and the writers basically let him write his own part as he knew more then they did.

Fact o' the day.

Awful control   Broken physics   Horrific AI   Weak voice work   Poor textures.

And that's just Wally on the pull.

Re: The good TV thread...

...you can't mention Arnold Rothstein without citing his off-screen death as one of the biggest cop-outs in recent TV history (alongside the Sopranos 'ending'). A tragedy the final series was so rushed, had it been given the full 12 eps. I'm sure it would have stood up to the rest.

Agree Millsy... stupendously good and underrated. Series 3 (Gyp Rosetti/Luciano), and 4 (Narcisse/Chalky) are fucking stupendous.

He was also the best part of season 3 of Fargo.
