Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Got 30 Rock on tap via DVR. I'll give it a whirl tonight. Should be grand.

Watched both new episodes of The Office. First wasn't very funny, then again, don't think it's main plot was intended to be. The tension with Pam and Jim continues to rise & it only leads you to assume that Pam will hook up with the boom mic fella. Why? I don't know. Can't say I'm into this plot at all. From a personal standpoint of course. It's not bad, haha. Lets break up the lovely heart and soul of the program. Not feeling it. Bad enough they turned Andy back into a bit of a twat this season. What was the point of all of the stuff trying to get Erin when we're supposed to end up rooting against him in favor for Jack the intern this season? Oh, while I went off on a questioning rant there, the second episode was pretty good. Much more along the lines of current Office type material. Interesting ending too. Season started out a lot funnier. I'm not surprised though. Still going to be glued to the show till the end as it is. I've gone 9 seasons deep. Have to see how it all ends.

Note to the writers: Give Erin more TV time again. Quit playing with my heart like this. She's the best.

It's also a show full of absolutely incredible performances, literally everybody in it is insanely good, but this is Tom Hardy's show, and jesus is he amazing in this.

He plays the main character who's a disgusting, vile, crazy human being coming out of prison and getting back into the organized crime/gangster world that he was put in there for. He's a loose cannon, and I can't think of anybody else that could have played that role. Whenever he's on screen he has this aura of insanity, you're constantly watching him expecting him to snap at any minute, his eyes are glazed and he looks totally unstable all the time. Incredible performance, and to me this is proof that Hardy is not only the best British actor of his generation, but one of the best of his generation in the entire world. The man is an acting machine.

The female characters are brilliantly written (it's based on the book, so whether or not that was the shows doing or not I don't know), the actresses are so good at playing the women trapped in this awful world. There's always a sense of danger and suspense. It's full of tense and unpredictable moments, and I can safely say this is the best 4 part show I've ever seen, and definitely one of the best mini-series ever. Everyone should watch this severely overlooked stunning piece of television.
All the good bits are the show's doing, Martina Cole is a fucking terrible, terrible author, as can be seen by the next mini-series Sky did of one of her stories (The Runaways) where they actually allowed her creative input.

The Take is absolutely magnificent though, was over at my friend's flat last week and we were talking and he mentioned how much he liked Tom Hardy and I was like "Give me a minute", put on the first part and by the time Tom Hardy's put someone through a TV the guy was in love. Tom's Freddie is just.... brilliant, terrifying and.... oddly real, if it were in a lesser actor's hands he'd be a cheesy mess of a character but Hardy makes it seem likely that this guy would just swagger about thinking he's god's gift.

Also the woman that play's Maggie is Tom Hardy's wife which makes their bathtub scene together pretty um... weird, unless they're into that sort of thing of course.

Best non-Hardy bit is pretty much anything featuring Brian Cox, in particular him throwing boiling hot coffee over Jimmy's crotch.

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Shit, had no idea the actress who played Maggie was married to Hardy. She'd get it.

But yeah, the show is brilliant. Really liked Jimmie by the end actually, the actor was great, can't remember his name but I've seen him in other stuff and he's really good. Cox is great too obviously. I loved how big in scale it felt, like a mini epic with how long a time period it spans. The way Freddie's wife gradually becomes a complete mess was brilliant but wouldn't allow herself to believe what she knew about him. The end felt like a mini Godfather moment which was awesome.

I fucked Ted.

She doesn't exactly have a great husband, but yeah, she does some stupid shit. I never really had a problem with her like almost everyone else on this site. BB threads are full of people whining about what Skyler did this week. I won't really get into what happens with her, but nothing she does is that big of a deal. Her motivations are pretty understandable, but like Walt, she often makes really bad decisions. She's flawed like everyone on the show.

I'm with MrMister on this one. I don't find her nearly as intolerable as everyone else. She is a hypocrite though.

And she fucked Ted.
