The UK's division over Ed Balls still being in Strictly intensified. I found myself disagreeing with Miranda Hart (she wanted him to win on Friday's ITT).

I got to see the film during the week. Thumbs up. Not my favourite film of the year, but lots of fun with enough to chew on.

Gilmore Girls – the rest of season 4

I meant to be good and write up my thoughts about the episodes on each disc of the box set, but frankly, I preferred watching the episodes than doing so, but having seen them all and with ‘A Year in the Life’ about to drop here they are…

And yes, I was finally poked into finishing this by the realisation that Netflix is dropping 'A Year in the Life' on Friday. I hope that those of you who have Netflix and are all caught up enjoy it. For my part, I'll be pleasantly surprised if I'm not spoiled by the time I get around to watching it on DVD, after the seasons I've yet to watch. Netflix have been making a big push for the show in the media that I read, even if I don't remember the show getting much traction in the UK when it was being made. I knew about it because I was watching shows from the same stable, but I only physically saw it on repeats on Nickelodeon or something like that.

I watched quite a bit of Children in Need last night, I usually don't, and was reminded of the reasons why last night, but I was dipping in and out of doing other stuff too. Mainly I wanted to catch the Strictly bit and the Fantastic Beasts-adjacent sketch. Read more... )

Sci-Fi!

I really enjoyed Arrival. It's smart and it's got heart, and it lived up to my 'it's as if Uhura got to be the main character' excitement when I saw the trailer after hearing of the buzz. Amy Adams is excellent as a grown-up lady who is competent at her job right at the heart of everything, ably supported by a good cast (Renner has never been so hot playing an occasionally bespectacled theoretical physicist, but I think that says more about me than anything else). It had more substance than the director's Sciario, for me. And spoiler? )

Also, Humans has been back for a bit, but was up against Poldark, so I've only caught up this week. The Humans Stand Up to Cancer skit was quite funny, mainly for torturing Joe.

shallowness: bright flowers in vase against green background (flowers that remind me of Layla)
Last night, at the last minute, instead of catching up with Humans (but I will so I can watch it live from Sunday on), as I’d intended to, I ended up watching Stephen Poliakoff’s Close to the Enemy. I won’t be repeating that action next week.

This is why )

And then we had a trailer for the already filmed third season.

1.7 Engine of Change

I did watch this not long after it aired, but the computer ate my reaction (or probably I didn’t keep track of the document where I’d saved it). So, I thought I’d do a rewatch. (As I’ve said previously, oh, the hardship!) But it's all taken longer than I intended, so it's been a while.
