I'm excited to be part of the next Generation of " The greatest Generation "
In years ahead, younger people will look upon us as braver that they could
ever hope to be. Songs will be written, stories told, movies will be made
about how resilient we were !!

I've started watching "Star cops" on Britbox another 80 British Sci-Fi show. Some good
stories but laughable special effects. You could see they were trying to go for an
" Outland" vibe but sadly with the budget of a school play.

Watching Survivors ( BBC 1975) on Britbox, given we're in a pandemic at the moment, I
thought it's a suitable time. The basic story is a virus from China spread across the world

I’m onto episode 7, it’s pretty good but getting a bit “samey”, I will stick with it though for now.

I’m watching Scott & Bailey on BritBox. A pretty good detective series with a good ensemble cast. Season 3 has a take on the Fred & Rose West case.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

I’ve just finished Truth Seekers, on Amazon. Starring Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Malcolm McDowell, this is 8 episodes of brilliant comedy horror, where the comedy doesn’t detract from the story. It’s about a group of amateur paranormal investigators, it’s clever, witty and has plenty of tense scenes. Recommended.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

Fans of Octopussy should watch the first two episodes of Yes Prime Minister, the 1980s comedy, which outlines the parlous situation of the UK's nuclear defences and what it would take for Prime Minister Hacker to push the button.
It was on BBC4 last night and is probably on iPlayer.
It is still brilliant!  ajb007/martini

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

I’ve seen the first 3 episodes of ITV’s, Marple, on BritBox. The period setting is vey good, with lots of well known supporting stars. The scripts seem to be close to the novels. Margaret Rutherford is still my favourite Miss Marple, though, even if, Geraldine McEwan is far closer to the book Marple. The music is also reminiscent of the brilliant Ron Goodwin score from the 1960’s series of films.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: Anything Good on TV ?

I too grew up with Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple, I remember that Agatha Christie
even dedicated " The Mirror Cracked .... " to her but I feel  Geraldine McEwan also brought
"a twinkle in  her eye " to the character. I've read all the Miss Marple books and yes
Rutherford is far from Christie's description. Although I do like how emancipated she was
for the time. If a villain took out a sword she'd point out that she'd been the Fencing
champion at her school.
   Just out of interest as some may not know it but, in her contract to play Miss Marple
Margaret Rutherford wanted and got, her Husband ( Mr Stringer ) as her sidekick/helper
and that she could wear her own clothes.
