OMG, so sad, so disgusting, basically a holocaust survivor phycologist in new york got funding for an experiment with twins, and then the triplets. just gobsmacking stuff.

and its all to see if people actually have ..... freewill.

Blue Lights. Season one great, season two great. Ireland is really the place to be at the moment. Half tempted to go back for a stint.

Season 2 of The Responder, set in Liverpool, is brilliant once more. It's one of those shows that's so gritty, and the acting so real, I have to avoid it when I'm feeling down. So, choose your mood carefully with this one.

Reviews seem to have ranged from 5 stars to 3 stars, but don't fall for the lower-end reviews. E.g., this dimwit reviewer forgot that the tone and subject matter ought to play zero role in one's rating.

Quote:
The Responder series two review: Does primetime TV need to be this exhausting and relentlessly gloomy?

Martin Freeman is excellent as an angry, sweary copper " but it’s hard to stomach the darkness of this drama.

If you can stomach the darkness without falling victim to sympathetic dejection, then The Responder has plenty of qualities. Freeman and Adedayo are a likeably human pairing, and the rendering of moonlit Liverpool is loving without being idealised. But does primetime TV need to be this exhausting? “How do you stay awake at night?” Chris asks a petrol-station shopkeeper. “Just, like, restock the crisps and that,” he replies with a shrug. But after an hour in the company of The Responder, it’ll take more than just shuffling the Quavers to stave off your full-body weariness.


https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/reviews/the-responder-martin-freeman-bbc-b2539250.html

Sure, it's grim, but only because Martin Freeman is so frighteningly good in the role. Sometimes I sit and watch people in the grim pockets of some towns and this is part of what you see and hear. It's also what you see and hear in some of the live British copper shows where the cameras follow them on the beat. And Liverpool is the grimmest of the grim, so it is what it is.

Yes, it's a painful watch. It's not everyone's cup of tea and defo don't watch it if you're down on life. But it does what art is supposed to do, namely enable you to experience other worlds. The reality behind this kind of show is exactly why I worry so much about young people growing up in it, rubbish socioeconomic policy that perpetuates it, and the duress that coppers endure in their work facing it everyday.

I am heading to Nova Scotia Canada in July to stay with friends for a month. They told me to check out the Canadian TV series "Sullivans Crossing" which is filmed in NS. I enjoyed season 1 and I am into Season 2 and still into it.

Watching the second season of "The Killing". Great detective series, plenty of drams and suspense let alone twist and turns.

Nice! Would love to go there one day. That will be a nice time to visit, too.

Will check out Sullivans Crossing.

We only watch Hudson and Rex for Rex the German Shepherd and the geography. It's set over the bay from Nova Scotia in New Brunswick and seems to be genuinely filmed along the east coast. St. John looks like it would make a good ferry trip across from Nova Scotia.

^^Counting down the days, be gone for nearly a month. Lots of hiking in Cape Breton, looking forward to Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. Then PEI Prince Edward Island. Plenty of Wineries, Beers to try and Lobster which is cheap. Also going to a Ribfest. I will need a holiday when I get back. Not looking forward to flying Sydney to Toronto but I will cope.

didnt like the end of the current season of Sullivans crossing, not as good as virgin river.

if you want a WTF and laugh at a miniseries based on true life, FAR NORTH on stan is brilliant!!

^^It was average, I think they may make a Season 3 but that would be the last if they do.

I just finished season 3 of Slow Horse, Season 4 released in September. This is an Apple UK TV Series. MI5, Gary Oldman is brilliant in it. It's very good.

I started watching Mayor of Kingstown Season 3 and wow, for a 3rd season, 1st episode was great.

I just watched the finale of The Responder. As mentioned above, it's dark, so if you're down it might not be the right show. But by god the acting is something else. Absolutely superb.
