Watched The Escape Artist. I'll spoiler my comments though they feature no spoilers about the story or content just about my feelings

Spoiler:
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

http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethe...christmas.html

Quote:
BBC One has confirmed that a special, bonus "mini-episode" of the Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman series will appear just in time for Christmas Day (Dec. 25).

"Many Happy Returns" will be a sort of prequel to the upcoming Season 3 of "Sherlock," giving a peek at the time after Holmes' presumed death at the end of Season 2.
Quote:
BBC One is making the mini-episode available online and via its Red Button service. PBS, which airs the series in the United States, has not released any information about an American release.

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.

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:

Vera
Whitechapel
Ripper Street
Scott & Bailey
The Fall
Silk
Case Histories
Luther
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.

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.

This is a fantastic one. It will leave you wanting more, though, as it only lasted 6 episodes.

It's also available on Hulu.

But not currently on

There's been some good stuff on over Christmas. I don't have it all to hand right now but a couple of specials and one off TV movies. I'll get the list written up when I can.

Thanks for pointing this one out. Looks good. There is also a fourth season, btw, with six eps, listed on IMDb.

Edit - Oops. Thanks to philw1776 for listing this one. Credit where credit is due!

Season 1-3 were each two 45-minute episodes telling a single story. Season 4 is six episodes, also two to a story.

Yep! It's on right now... Will be over in about 40 minutes, so I figure it'll be available to download about 45-60 minutes after it ends.
