Alright? Hi Tassoula and Michael...
A note to Michael... Re The "Cracker" Christmas special...
NOT a BBC program but ITV , so it does have "ad breaks".. (excised in download form?)...We pay a license fee (£135 a year now i think)
for the Beeb...so there are NO AD
BREAKS at all!. Whenever anyone starts moaning about paying their license, i remind them that we can watch stuff without evocations every 12 and a half minutes to buy a friggin Nissan, or whatever. The first two seasons of "24" were on BBC 2,
just imagine "24" in "real-time"? , no need to fret over what's happening to Jack on the ad-break..
then "Sky" (which is part of "Fox")
snaffled it up,and the whole "ticking clock" motif lost any real meaning..anyway i heard somebody say that it was Dick Cheney's favourite show, so i can do without it these days.
"Kooodos" to Michael, you have heavily influenced my choices lately,with "Primal Fear", referred to in the "Painted Veil" ep
as the "breakthrough" for Ed Norton,
Richard Gere and Laura Linney,both very pretty,a crisply executed "twist", expert acting from Norton.
..have also started watching "the Wire" , totallly essential.. just three hours in , i'm hooked...(watched "Ghost World" again the other night, what a laugh!..wise-cracking teenagers,with an overall melancholic feel, see also "Life is Sweet" by Mike Leigh)
"Kudos" is the name of the production company that made "Life On Mars" my other current obsession. Now both boxed sets are out ..John Simm is sooo good. He is definitely one of the best Brit actors right now.. He is back "on Stage" at the moment, but his last thing on T.V. was great,"the Yellow House", surely the best ever portrayal of Vincent Van Gough's descent into madness, it may be available as a download or DVD, via Channel Four. I can send you a copy if you want.
As a consequence of my current "crush" on John , I revisited "State Of Play" the Paul Abbott series of a few years back.(Referred to over "Last King Of Scotland" , James McAvoy)
A Hollywood version is in preproduction with Brad Pitt in John Simm's role as the journalist,close friend to David Morrissey's under pressure politician..like "the Wire" the story arc is long, and all about the relationships of the characters , not just "the plot"...
I suppose it could make a good film, cut down to a couple of hours..set in Washington,
however,there would be mostly comic irony, not intrigue,in OIL company lobbyists trying to influence Government!!..( no duh!?)
So i have ended up giving you my "last five" here in mangled form. All the best,hope you had a good laugh at "Hot Fuzz" ... a great detail i remember is the squeal of the tarty shopgirl's trainers on the lino as the WPC "takes her out" in the Supermarket showdown. I also e-mailed you this as the "word verification" widget doesnt always work it seems...commenting on "i-tunes" also seems tricky ..will try again , but "I-Tunes" tends to "take over" , without a lot of resetting of defaults and all.
Cheers Chris Morrell
