Thursday's Child (BBC 1973) - Found it!

I've been looking for this for a while now...found it on a german DVD site... I hope it's ok to link to the site: http://www.pidax-film.de/product_info.php?products_id=434 It has german and english language versions and has the BBC logo on it. Any ideas why this isn't released in the UK? I've ordere...

Re: The Fall - BBC 2

We've only seen episode 1 and I found the ending of that deeply disturbing...really not sure about watching episode 2...the only thing I kept thinking was that surely this must end with them catching the guy. For him to get away or have the detective falling for him makes me actually feel sick... Bu...

Re: Dave Allen Doc

We caught it by accident, but agree...stunningly good!

And interesting about his attitude toward repeats...I've wondered why he never got shown. Would this still affect releases and DVDs after his death? It's a shame he wasn't repeated - I had forgotten how downright funny his stuff was...

Re: PR: The Man Who Haunted Himself [BD+DVD] [Network]

I saw this film on TV when I was about 10 or 11...scared me so much, I feel a thrill of fear even reading this thread...perhaps I need to get it as a sort of therapy...XD I can't imagine why I saw it, though - I know we were fans of The Persuaders and Live and Let Die, so perhaps that's why I watche...

Re: Breaking Bad

We discovered it on Netflix - it's consistently described as one of the best series on TV, so we thought we'd give it a go...

It's excellent...and we can boxset binge as much as we like since we're only on season 1...

Re: TV Tie In Books

I found a 'TV tie-in' novel of The Pallisers...yes, that's right, one short novel...massively abridged from the original 6 novels by Trollope... It's by Tony Hussey, and has 'based on the BBC TV series' proudly on the front cover. And to be honest, I wish I had found it after I first saw the series ...
