Final Episode of The Outsider is recorded and ready for us to watch this evening...
It's been excellent. I just hope they have given it a worthwhile ending - and that we don't just emit yet another meh! (something we've done a few times recently with some less than satisfactory endings)
Well - I actually thought the ending was as good as it could be. All in all - an excellent series - nightmarish, thought-provoking in a 'what-if' sort of way - and very atmospheric. But in truth - may have preferred it to not have been of the Stephen King genre.
I can echo LT comment, gave up after 4 episodes of boredom and it not going anywhere other than trying to make Jean Luc a hip style grandad. It really doesn't improve in pace or story sadly as I really wanted it to be good.
Re-started The Stranger last night, we'd reached part way through Ep 3 when we stopped as we found it too similar in style to The Outsider. Now that that's done we can restart. And we'll continue with Noughts and Crosses this evening.
I quite enjoy watching little snippets of the original LiS on TCM. The theme music is iconic of the time and that with Will, Dr Zachary, Judy, Penny and Robbie trigger fond childhood memories. The special effects and aliens are rather special
I watched the first ever episode of Taskmaster last night - recommended by someone on here in the Bad Golf thread - just had to download the UK TV Play app for free and all the episodes are there. Rather amusing and will be a good chuckle to stick on whenever I'm in need of something to watch.
Regarding Inside Number 9 mentioned above, I thought I'd never seen it but I now realise I did watch the first episode a while back, where lots of people were trying to get in the same cupboard. Wasn't a big fan, but then, I've never really liked anything from those writers.
