The documentary was wonderful!
I really enjoyed the DC5 documentary. They were a great band. I had a crush on Mike Smith, the lead singer. LOL
Thank heavens for Bletchley Circle. It premiered tonight on my local station. Sunday has become such a wasteland for me, it is nice to have something to look forward to.
Prepare to be bummed out...via Twitter:
This news sucks!
The Bletchley Circle AXED – By EMAIL!!!!!!
April 16th, 2014 by Anna Howell.
Awful news; and handled terribly!
Agreed. British fans of the show have mounted a petition campaign to try to save the show; we can only hope that they are successful.
You had me at David Tennant ...
For parents and kids at heart, two new episodes from Season 17 of Arthur will air Monday and Tuesday next week.
News: MASTERPIECE Announces Fall, 2014 Schedule
^ for new Lewis, I knew they couldn't stay away.
for the Bill Nighy drama. I remember really liking Page Eight but don't remember a lot of details -- I hope they repeat it before they show the new ones.
Not quite so sure about Death Comes to Pemberley. The book was somewhat of a disappointment to me, but it might make good fodder for TV. And I really like Anna Maxwell Martin, she'll make a great Elizabeth. Matthew Rhys could be great as Darcy too, he's definitely got the right look about him.
Miss Marple -- meh. Julia McKenzie is ok, but if it isn't Joan Hickson, it isn't Marple imo.
Oh, man. Endless Night scared the ever-living CRAP out of me way back when.
. . . But now I'm kind of curious to see what the adaptation will be like. The book didn't have Miss Marple, so I wonder how they'll work her in.
Any folks have fond memories of Brideshead Revisited and Jewel in the Crown?
Yes x2! And my memories are not even that distant as I re-watched both last summer.
Yes to the former. I never saw the latter.
Both excellent examples of TV adaptations that were better than their source novels, btw. (IMO at least.)
I love Jewel In The Crown. I have the DVDs- and still re-watch it from time to time. I haven't ever seen Brideshead, but I also have that. It's on my list.
Loved both. Discovered Charles Dance in Jewel in the Crown One of the reasons I watched Brideshead was because of Anthony Andrews.
The older version of Brideshead is terrific. The newer shorter version doesn't quite measure up.
I prefer to ignore the existence of the newer, shorter version. The Anthony Andrews / Jeremy Irons version is the alpha and the omega.
I couldn't agree more!
I was not aware of a newer, shorter version. I don't intend to watch it. Yup, nothing like Andrews & Irons in their prime.
Did anyone watch Van Gogh: Painted with Words last night? Two of my favourite things together, Van Gogh and Benedict Cumberbatch.
It repeats on Saturday on the Seattle affiliate.
I saw it on YouTube...an excellent bio pic/documentary...loved it!
From Summer TV Premiere thread:
^ If you're watching on the Seattle affiliate, it's on Thursday instead. (They're repeating Endeavour on Sunday.) So ... check your local listings.
My Austin PBS affiliate is showing it tomorrow, SUN, 06/15; scheduling may vary by local affiliates.
