    Angry Re: What T.V series

    I was sad that Downton Abbey finished.

    SSGB on BBC 1 on Sundays, started rather slow and almost boringly, but it has picked up little o I'll persevere with it for the moment. The series was, in fact, not quite what I expected, and unless it picks up greatly I feel that it has missed an opportunity of presenting a realistic and thought-provoking story. We shall see.

    I enjoy the Catherine Cookson's series of 3 hour period 'epics' set in the North East being aired on Drama Channel (20 Freeview)

    Boon (originally ITV) is being shown, I think, each day. We now appear to have moved to Nottingham to film the various series. As I have lived in the Nottingham area all my life, I find it great fun recognising the various locations that they are now using. Far more interesting to me than when they filmed the earlier series in Birmingham ! They are showing "Boon" each afternoon at 3 pm on the "Drama" channel. I have a vested interest in the Boon series now that they are showing the episodes filmed in Nottingham, as the film company hired our river charter/trip boat for one of the episodes, I think it was the 90 minute Christmas special at the end of series 6 (ep.14) - Michael Elphick kept himself to himself when not filming on location in the boat. Neil Morrissey, all 6' 4" of him had to bend when he came down into the saloon, and one of our crew Jim became jelly-like when Elizabeth Carling came down the steps into our saloon. Jim reckoned she'd got legs "right up to the top". Actually she was a very nice person and she really had a great pair of legs !!! We could see this, as she was wearing a Christmas outfit with a very short skirt. I think Jim was never the same after Elizabeth had a photo taken while she was sitting on his knee !! Neil and Elizabeth were in a relationship at the time, and I always thought it was rather a shame that they split up after being engaged for a while.

    I'm also pleased that Robot Wars has been brought back with a second series on BBC 2 on Sunday evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the mayhem of several years ago when Craig Charles was the presenter.

    I know there are other TV progs. that I enjoy but I'm tired and need to get some sleep !

    Re: What T.V series

    I got a chance recently to watch The HBO series "Westworld" season 1.
    OMG!!!!
    That was awesome. The acting is superb, and the plot takes some very interesting turns.
    I am taking a breather before taking on season 2

    I'd love to see that one, but don't want to pay for HBO. I'll have to figure out a way.

    Re: What T.V series

    If none of you have ever watched Orphan Black, the series finale is this Saturday. It was 5 seasons long and OMG is the lead actress awesome.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    Well, I just discovered that season 2 does not come out until 2018, now. No matter.
    I probably want to re-watch season 1 before then, anyway.

    I think it is worth paying for. and I don't say that about many series that have come from HBO
    Boardwalk Empire was one I enjoyed a great deal.
    Some of the others, not so much.
