Anybody spot Bérénice Marlohe on the new season of Twin Peaks last night?  Tiny role, imagine wont be seen again on the series. 

Believe Bellucci due to appear also. 

Lots of characters this season and all seem to get tiny screen time

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

I just finished watching season 6 of Homeland. As usual the acting and craft is first rate. I still think Rupert Friend could become a good James Bond.  The plot takes place in NY and the president elect is a woman. A right-wing radio host hates her and calls his supporters and himself "deplorables". The last episode is even called "America first"! At that point I had serious doubts about where the show was heading. Homeland has always been at its best when it companies complex characters with a plot that reflects real world events, but really? But then the show avoid that mistake by giving the story a surprising twist in the last part of the last season. So don't give up Homeland yet, it's smarter than what one might suspect during the last few episodes.

Well, what Rupert did to Hitman (although he shares the fault with many other people) is unforgivable.
It'd be a pity for him to play 007 but he is a good actor.

I saw it too, but I don't think it was bad because of him. In addition to Homeland I've seen him in "The boy in the striped pyjamas " "Cheri" and "Young Victoria". He was good in all of them, so I don't think one bad movie should exclusive him.  Rupert Friend is also the right age, nationality, age, height and level of fame. He also has the right look.

Only because i seen this on tv yesterday. I saw the advertisement for the new film and in it was starring Daniel Craig. I suppose every body will already know this. I can not remember what the film is called though.

The fall season hasn't started on TV yet, so there isn't anything good on TV. The TV headquarters is in Oslo where it doesn't rain, so they think people are outside in the sun. no need for good TV  ajb007/crap
At least the election debates start tonight, but they are not very entertaining because the politicians have some dignity ....

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

just watched Season 5 of Veep

gotta feel bad for these fastthinking comic geniuses
even with Elaine Benes, Bertie Wooster and Buster Bluth in charge of the free world, they couldn't come up with anything half as ridiculous as reality has done in the meantime. ...at least this version of incompetence in high places is just makebelieve, so that's a nice thought

must give credit to Julia Louise-Dreyfuss, she showed off finer acting chops here than anything I've seen her do before, the episode where her mother dies of a stroke and she only shows emotion when she learns she's lost the Nevada recount is deeply disturbing yet gut-wrenching funny at the same time

the episode where we see the documentary her daughters been filming all season is mighty good too, I had to keep rewinding and pausing to catch all the densely packed jokes within that one (Wikipedia tells me Sarah Sutherland is actually the daughter of Kiefer, therefor granddaughter of Donald and greatgrandaughter of Canadian politician Tommy Douglas)

I assumed this must be the last season, what with the rather conclusive ending, and reality being funnier and all, but I see there has now been a sixth season

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

I'm watching season 2 of Gotham. I think it's improved since the first season. I liked the take on Gotham during Bruce Wayne's childhood, but got the feeling that nothing really bad would happen to the regulars since we all know who will survive until Bruce becomes Batman.
But to my great surprise one of the central characters in the Batman universe died this season. Suddenly it feels like much more things can happen and far fewer characters are guaranteed to survive the series. Nice.

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

Watching a whole load of stuff at the moment ... non of which is gripping me but I am finding watchable

'Startup' on Amazon with Martin Freeman

'Shooter' on Netflix

'Alpha House'  on Amazon  ... amusing but nothing based at the White House these days is as ludicrous as what is really happening there.

'Suits' ... same old watchable fluff (Louis Litt perhaps one of TV's greatest characters)

'Ray Donovan' ... very disappointing so far but Jon Voight always good value.

Quacks a new BBC  comedy  with Rory Kinnear  and in episode two Andrew Scott
Very funny, set in the late 18 century all the remedies use were real for the time,
and some are crazy.

Great tip! I'm watching the first episode on Youtube now. The simmularities between PM Chamberlain's Tarrif Reform policy and the "America first" policy of Trump seem striking.

Tonight there is ohmss on the television. I will be watching this. It is only the second time of watching this film for me. I think it is different to other James Bond films but I like it anyway.

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

I was trying to find this thread last night and couldn't - must've been tired.

Anyway, UK forum members should keep an eye on Talking Pictures TV, as they have the 1957 movie Time Lock on their schedule - it played last night at midnight, but I'm sure it will be back on soon. Although I need to see it for other research reasons, the film contains a battle of the quiffs between Canadian b-picture star Lee Patterson and a young Sean Connery, who plays a welder.

The film doesn't appear to have had an official DVD release, in the UK at least, so this is a rare chance to see Big Tam in one of hs earliest film roles. Talking Pictures tend to show movies a few times, so I'm sure it'll be on again - in fact I'll drop them a Twitter message and ask if it's coming up again.

EDIT: Talking Pictures replied, saying they don't have a date for the next screening, but it's definitely coming on again.

Hope you enjoyed it, Joshua!
It really grew on me that one.
First time I watched it I foolishly hated it. not even finishing it.
Now, after repeat viewings. its one of the very best.
