It’s not a show but has anyone watched El Camino? It’s A Breaking Bad movie centred on Jesse after his escape from captivity. The Netflix preview looks pretty good.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, as will any bb fan ! :thumbup:

What about a “don’t think it was anywhere near as good as it’s fanboys make out but still watched the whole series and thought it was a decent show type” fan?


Bro I’m the same. Thought BB was ok but definitely second tier and didn’t get the hype. The missus, on the other hand, loved BB so we watched el Camino last night. It was... ok. Although suffered from the fact it was focussed on the worst character on BB. Thankfully there was less use of ‘bitch’ every second word though.

Cheers. I don't actually mind Jesse, I thought he had a decent character arc. So I'll probably like it a bit more than you.

Jesse Plemons hasn’t aged well since the original series though!


Can't believe he's only 31! He looks mid 40s in this movie.

I liked the movie, have to say though that Todd looking 50lbs heavier and 20 years older kinda broke the immersion a bit. It looked like he spent the last 5 years eating and sunbathing.

We binged Unbelievable, all of it yesterday. I'd read a longform about this and iirc there's a book. Very good, had to fast forward at parts, not easy watching.

El Camino was a bit shit I thought. Lots of potential but just didn’t deliver.

What are the thoughts on season 2 of Succession?
I find it real f**king slow, a real shame after a promising first season.

I think it’s even better than season one - much more character development and so clever. Do you read the vulture episode guides they are excellent

We've just started Elementary - and enjoying it so far.

Lucy Liu is a really easy watch and I have plenty of time for Jonny Lee Miller.

I watched a couple of series of it before losing track.
It's an easy watch yeah, though it seems to have gone on for about 7 seasons which is nuts.

I greatly recommand "le bureau des legendes", if you can find it somewhere.

One of the best TV series ever.

He looked a lot bigger/older in Fargo as well, which can’t have been more than a couple of years after Breaking Bad - guess all that time in the sun in BB took its toll!

She's hilarious in both. WWDITS is excellent too. Really got the tone of the film down. Some proper laugh out loud stuff in it.

She’s the best thing about it, and one of the few well drawn characters. Most of the others, especially the men, are caricatures. The geezer with big teeth was straight out of Dick Emery ffs (and, like an emery to the dick, it grated ;)). If you’re not shocked at the frank sex stuff then there’s not much else there...

The Purge is back and the first episode was promising, looks like the season will be exploring the aftermath of Purge night.

he was roommates in LA with a guy I know a little - as I recall he had to bulk up for Black Mass where he played a pub bouncer.

Just googled it, yeah - https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2016/1 ... ht-gain-gq

That is quite amazing and I agree with others she is the best thing in it.

Y'know I'm worried looking at the trailers.
2019 take on the story? I can't imagine Alan Moore is too happy with all the liberties they're taking with the plot.
If he's even arsed watching it.

Is it the case they'll be sticking to the structure of the book and it will have a definitive end?
If so, I'll wait for it to finish and watch it in one go. If not, I'll probably not bother my arse with it.

same alternate universe, but it's not a straight retelling of the original story and it's set 30 years later

Quote:
The TV series will not be a direct adaptation of the original source material, instead, being "remixed"; aiming to tell an entirely new story set in the world where the events of the original storyline took place.The series will also showcase different points of view, with the only characters from the original storyline confirmed to appear in the series being Doctor Manhattan, the former Silk Spectre, and former hero Ozymandias. The series will also focus on a detective named Angela Abar, codenamed Sister Night.

It's just the one I think, or at least it's usually all compiled into the one graphic novel.
I'm enjoying reading about the interaction, or rather lack thereof, between Lindleoff and Moore.
Weird position for the show creator to be in, that's if he cares about anything other than money/the success of the show which he probably doesn't.

Haha, just quickly googled that and the first article was about Moore cursing him.

Slight nuance, but she didn't write it per se, she was brought in to "liven up" the script which was already written. Originally it was written by Purvis and Wade, then re-written (entirely?) by Danny Boyle, then I think reverted back to the P&W script before Waller-Bridge came in. God knows why P&W were involved at any point though given how awful the last 3 Bond movies were.

Very much this. I watched the first episode and barely cracked a smile - all the 'humour' seems to be contingent on just shock value, which has already been done to death elsewhere. [/humbug]

Frustrating how HBO is sticking to the 1 a week format.
Modern streaming has made me so impatient with shows.
