'Broadchurch' - Starring David Tennant - BBC America

http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/06/25/br...o-bbc-america/

Quote:
Created by regular Doctor Who scribe Chris Chibnall, the show tracks a pair of cops, played by David Tennant and Olivia Colman, as they attempt to solve the murder of an 11-year-old boy and, along the way, uncover a multitude of sins in the titular seaside town.
Starts August 7 on BBC America.

I watched this via magical means a while ago and found it to be very very good. Fantastic acting by David Tennant.

Check it out.

It was great. We watched it a couple weekends ago and were thoroughly engrossed from beginning to end.

I guessed the murderer in the episode before last, but it didn't spoil the enjoyment - and most won't figure it out until it's revealed (no spoilers here!).

Well the fact that people won't figure it out is kind of a spoiler

I'll delete this if you decide to delete yours. I honestly think even your minor comment is a pretty big spoiler to the nature of the show.

The nature of the show is a murder mystery. There is absolutely nothing 'spoilery' about a comment that some may figure out who did it and some would not. Good grief!

Er, no. The whole premise of the show is that the main characters are investigating the murder of an 11-year-old boy. Read the OP.

As JLuc points out, nothing spoilery at all!

Well, there's one's where you know who it is up front, one's where you can easily predict and one's where you think you have it figured out but someone tells you there's a massive twist at the end. It all changes the perception of how you watch the show. I had the benefit of watching this show 100% cold with no idea what it was about, people who read this non-spoiler thread will not. Not sure what was wrong with "it's really good".

Good to see the usual TonyD79 quality input

So the commercials for shows that say they tell you who did it are spoilers?

Gee, should you even know it is about a murder? That would be a spoiler.

My "input" rightly mocked your stupid claim that saying a murder mystery is about a murder is a spoiler, which is true "quality input."

Like Sheldon told Stewart at the Comic Book shop:

"Telling someone that a story is mind-blowing IS A SPOILER"

-- From the wisdom of Sheldon Lee Cooper, TBBT

Thanks for the heads-up on "Broadchurch"!

Another thanks for the heads-up. Just finishing watching all eight eps in two nights. Superb. The tension in the last few eps was really something. Very moving as well.

Keep on self justifying. At no point did I say "it's about a murder" was a spoiler. Going in knowing what was posted early in this thread would have completely changed it for me.

It looks like there is going to be an American version of 'Broadchurch'.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/08/01/br...eading-to-fox/

Quote:
Fox will adapt the popular U.K. drama Broadchurch for the 2014-15 season. The network announced today that it will begin filming the crime series in January as part of its push for more long-form “event” series.

Is it so hard for American networks to learn this never ends well? Air the UK version. Don't remake it. Don't "improve" it. You're genetically a bunch of idiots. Just rebroadcast it. As is. Unchanged. I mean nothing changed. Don't edit stuff out. Don't overdub "elevator" in place of "lift." Don't presume your audience is a bunch of idiots... (Well, TLC and a few others excepted).

*sigh*

So you're suggesting that the American TV audience is generally NOT a bunch of idiots?

Well, to be fair, Tennant is using his native Scottish accent!

But please, say it ain't so.

Yeah, I don't get this. I generally don't think too highly of the American public but most 12 year olds managed to read the Harry Potter books without an American version. I think we could mange this.

I still say no way.

Fine, so I'll give Fox a pass if they only change the title of the show. But don't change anything else.

Watch premiere online before BBC America debut

BBC America is unveiling "Broadchurch's" premiere online a few days before the series is set to debut in the United States. The David Tennant ITV show that took the UK by storm will air on BBC America starting on Aug. 7 at 10 p.m. ET, but the network already has episode 1 online. It can be watched in its entirety above.

Does anyone else have the first airings of Broadchurch not marked as "new" in the Tivo guide? I'd set a season pass for "first run only", but last night's premiere wasn't recorded because the guide didn't have it as "new". Luckily, they reaired the episode for me to record.

Pretty typical for a show that aired earlier in another country...
