now that I have wifi I have been watching a load of new stuff that I missed. I have to say that I am obsessed with 'SAS Who Dares Wins', and 'Hunted' is a fascinating social experiment. I really enjoy Hunted, and its quite freaky to know how under surveillance we are all the time. They had one series made in the US too.They have Celebrity Hunted as well, the one with Boris's dad was entertaining.

Dracula is done! Finrod was not too thrilled, wasn't the best he had seen. Too much talking I think. Not enough action.

I say this is a perfect example of how Moffat - dare I say it - should always be forced into a smal box. That's when he does his best work.

Before it I never would have thought of Tida Swinton in a comic role, though it's dark and very sly with the comedy. She's playing it straight, but definitely has timing.

She is a dam fine actress Smile Ive seen her in so much. She is quite androgynous to look at & I saw her cast as an Angel because of it ( I think ? ) I liked her in The Grand Budapest Hotel tho she wasn't in it long. was cast as an old lady I think ? OMG Ralph Fiennes was hysterical in it Smile

Tilda Swinton is amazing. I loved her most in Orlando. The final minute of the film looking into her eyes has haunted me for 27 years.

{{ Watched this over xmas but havent had chance to discuss or review it- Mackenzie crooks version of Worzel Gummidge, broadcast on Boxing Day on BBC1.
Now Brits of a certain age, myself included, will think of Jon Pertwees loveable turn in the hugely popular ITV series of the late 70's and early 80's.
It had a very sitcom feel to it for want of a better genre and Pertwee played the character with an affable likeableness even when he was often being a stubborn arse.

For those who don't know the premise is a couple of city kids find themselves in the english rural countryside where they encounter Worzel Gummidge a scarecrow who can talk and move, turns out he is only one of many, all scarecrows are animate as well as a variety of other objects imbued with life like Aunt Sally whose made of wood. Anyhow kids meet scarecrows adventures ensue.

The Pertwee version was like this-



Mackenzie Crooks take on the character is closer to the original stories, there is more a sens of the mystism of the English countryside and his Worzel, whilst still likeable I felt struggled against the more realistic turnip head makeup. It makes him harder to instantly like as he looks a bit disconcerting and it sharder to express hmself, something Pertwee was a master at using every bit of his face.

Spoilers (and 1st episode is below so may want to watch that first)
Spoiler:
Overall if youve never encountered the tales of Worzel Gummidge before heres the first episode to make up your own minds- }}

They found a real winner in that actress. What I like is that her 19th century personality was so much more interesting than her modern personality. This rings true: people didn't have entertainment devices to sink themselves into back then.

Once again I have to push Peter Gunn: bite sized pieces of film noire. Some of the directors are fantastic - the use of shadows and camera angles is as good as you'll see anywhere and better than 95% of what's out there.

Netflix has really been running the gamut of TV shows. I think we're entering a new golden age of television with all these new studios producing content. It's a windfall for the acting profession as well.
