I can't even imagine Forbes in that role actually, she's far too emotive. Lund was constrained, uncommunicative, to a fault. As was Linden (until a horrible episode of the US version where they deviated completely and pretty much ruined that character in my eyes).
I certainly didn't mean to imply that Sofie Gråbøl did nothing in her performance, far from it in fact, I thought she was absolutely superb. I don't think Mireille Enos aped her performance either. Linden was a similar but distinct entity in my eyes. Forbes is a great actress, and I have no doubt that she could have taken Linden on, but she's much more suited to the mother role than Linden. That's nothing against her talent or abilities, simply a matter of more appropriate casting.
I love her personnaly, i thought her and Teds storyline was sweet and i was a bit mad they sidelined it a bit and it cam from no where that they broke up. Poor Ted :(
I'm sure she's a very nice girl, but I would prefer to have the narrative of the TV show continue rather than to have a minute and a half ukulele interlude with overly-precious lyrics.
Working through two seasons of Jeremiah. It's better than expected, if maybe not terribly deep (or, there's a bit many emotional shortcuts). Luke Perry is playing Luke Perry, as usual, but then, he's quite good at that, so it works okay.
And it amuses me they all say 'nukular'.
Sort of following Supernatural too, but I have no idea which episode or even season they're on here (nor which number of reruns).
As someone said earlier, it might be better watching it in small doses, so one episode a day like they show here is fine.
Finished Jeremiah, which was decent enough, and am half way through the 24 existing episodes of Space: Above and Beyond. It's been around fifteen years since I last watched that series, but it holds up rather well.
Finished watching season 3 of The Wire finally. Well at least it got good at the end, I don't mind the Hamsterdam episode I mean its quite good that it highlights maybe legalising drugs wouldn't be to bad, but to be honest it was a kind of boring story. None of the characters in this season really had that much interesting stories, and well I know its meant to say that the frustrating part of policing modern is the drug dealers having got up on them but that makes the mai ninvestigation boring as well because there stalled and not really doing anything for 11 episodes I think it was!
But the ending was great, and an interesting character throughout these 3 seasons bought the bullet. Also that Brother Muzom character is probably the most interesting character even though we pretty much know nothing about him. I kind of want to know his backstory lol
I am about halfway through the first season of The Wire and am enjoying it immensely.
A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.
Oh yeah the first two seasons of The Wire are absolutely fantastic pieces of television. Just them two alone i could consider this probably one of my favourite TV series of all time! I just really thought the quality of season 3 was down, or maybe the writers were in a bit of a spin there wheels mode.
Parks & Recreation is back. Which means a weekly opportunity to bask in the glory of Ron Swanson: -
got back into farscape. second season ep 10.
quality varies. some episodes are pretty awesome. some are just shit. anyone can say whether it gets worse/better later on?
