Thanks! I have a reminder set to get them in a few weeks.
Autism: Challenging Behaviour
A look at the ABA scheme introduced to help autistic children and how only one school has adopted the full programme. This documentary follows two young boys first terms at the school.
This aired on BBC FOUR.
Watched The Escape Artist. I'll spoiler my comments though they feature no spoilers about the story or content just about my feelings
I thought the first two episodes were excellent, if a little cliche at times, but the last episode was not good at all, far too convoluted and unlikely
I noticed yesterday that the latest season of Have I got News for you is well under way.
Funny show, even if I don't get all the political references.
Thanks for the heads up on The Escape Artist and Black Mirror. The Escape Artist is an odd thing, a 3 hour "mini series" of a sort. It probably could have been squeezed into a 2 hr movie, but the length and even the breaks between episodes seemed about right.
Black Mirror is even better. Futuristic, disturbing. It was compared to The Twilight Zone, and really is more current and topical. While the first series episode The Entire History of You involves some futuristic technology, you could almost re-do the episode with people using Google Glass ( at least the Orwellian version of it people keep harping on about )
In several episodes they do an excellent job in incorporating future technology without going too far in the future, creating stories where the tech is integral to the story where you could imagine that scenario being possible in the next decade or so.
Those short, single story series are pretty common in the UK.
'Sherlock' Season 3: A bonus mini-episode for Christmas
Just finished the final series of Misfits. There was no way it cold end satisfactorily but other than that I thought the season was great. Much better than 3 & 4.
I agree this season was much better than the last two. Nothing beats 1 and 2, though. I'll miss this show.
This season almost felt like "Hmm, people just aren't uncomfortable enough watching our show. Let's DO something about that!"
And they pretty much pulled it off.
I'd have liked to see more clear callbacks to the original cast. There were some subtle one's but nothing specific enough. There's been talk of a movie.
'The IT Crowd Manual'
This behind-the-scenes documentary features interviews with the main cast of the cult comedy The IT Crowd, plus a host of celebrity fans
I'd like to ask if there are any additional suggestions in the crime drama genre. My wife and I have watched many of the shows mentioned in this thread (and some that aren't) and for the most part have really enjoyed them. Among our favorites (in no particular order) are:
Scott & Bailey
The Hour (gone too soon!!!)
Peaky Blinders (I like it, she doesn't )
The Escape Artist
and of course, Sherlock
So those shows generally define our taste. Any suggestions of similar shows would be most welcome. Thanks
Shown on British TV yesterday was Still Open All Hours.
For anyone who remembers the great sitcom Open All Hours with the irreplaceable Ronnie Barker and David Jason, this is a must.
Granville inherited the store on Arkwright's passing and his son is the errand boy. Many of the old faces of the customers make an appearance including the now retired Nurse Gladys Emanuel (Lynda Barron).
Worth seeking out but, I have to say, without Barker, it's missing something, and I'm a huge fan of Jason, too.
Yes, we did watch that - thanks.
I caught that and it really brought back a lot of memories. They did a great job of capturing the overall atmosphere of the original.
In the crime drama dept, I'd suggest Waking the Dead
Downloading now - thanks
Really enjoyed After Life with Andrew Lincoln
