  1. Yes. This was actually kind of like a very fucked up episode of Friends called "The One Where Rachel Wakes Up Next To Dead Ross in Bangkok". I have NO IDEA how the FBI agents don't just arrest her now she's so obviously hiding something but what the hell, I'm in for a couple more episodes.
  2. I agree, I'm not sure killing Bazza off was the best thing to do. The relationship between the 3 of them is one of the best things about the show and the 2-way dynamic doesn't feel like it'll be as interesting. Maybe the actor wanted to leave.
  3. She really is. Having her and Bet as a double act makes the show catch fire because she gives Paloma Faith someone to play off of. The art student whose name I forget isn't cutting it for me. You need a character who is a match for Bet and she just isn't. I was hoping that that old couple who were her BDSM slaves in series 1 would be working in her S&M shop!
  4. Honor among thieves. If Ripper is scary enough to get people to fight to the death for a pardon from the Queen, he could most likely get them to do what they were told. Plus they could always tag and control them with explosive tracking collars or something since retro-futurist tech seems to exist in this universe. This ep was definitely an improvement on the last few. It still felt like a series of vignettes about the characters but slightly less so. Plus the asshole fashion designer and Patricia's makeover (particularly the hair) ware hilarious.
  5. Yeah, Ripper's plan was better. And... actually a plan. PeggyPeggyPeggyPeggy!!!!! I missed you! Peggy's deadpan "I called your work. They said you were on the run for murder." - Funniest. Line. Ever
  6. I feel like she got more interaction with other characters last season. Plus I liked her sister a lot so it didn't impinge quite so much.
  7. This show still looks amazing, still has great character moments and individual scenes but is still lacking. Also damn, I liked Bazza and he never even got a storyline 😞. Not sure how the Alfie/Daveboy relationship will work without him. I'm also wondering how much Covid affected production and if that's the reason Bet is stuck off in her own separate (boring) storyline. I know Paloma Faith was pregnant recently too.
  8. I am still really enjoying the characters, character moments and ambience but the actual storylines so far are majorly lacking this season.
  9. I am extremely bored and have nothing to watch. Has this gotten any better?
  10. Well crap. Just when I was so pleased to see the back of the supernatural stuff...
  11. She really did! That was Sandra, wasn't it? Was she supposed to be terrible and only on stage because she's Alfie's girlfriend? That doesn't really fit with the scene if so. And I don't remember her being a bad singer in S1. Maybe it was just an arrangement of the song that didn't quite work. Glad the show is back and in a second season. I liked; Less servile/more assy playing-both-sides Alfie. Pointing out to Aziz that Aziz has screwed him over in the past. Even though Harwood is EVOL, I love that this show keeps it ambiguous and doesn't have a Good Side and a Bad Side in this
  12. Anything as long as it can be filmed on a very modest budget.
  13. Yeah..... so this is officially less Black Mirror and more Black Mold. I'm out.
  14. Can't say I'm surprised by the cancellation - I didn't even hear that the show was coming out until after the first 2 episodes aired and I'm now only learning it's canned 2 weeks after the announcement!
  15. I'm confused - FILE #3 is already available on t*rr*nts and has been for some time although that is definitely not where I got it from. 😑 It's probably the best episode so far - I won't spoil it but there is one plot device in it that I thought was very clever, but it's all still very... flat. Shea has no personality whatsoever and Roger Sterling's snark was so much better written in Mad Men.
  16. I feel like this show could be enormously fun and cool but it just... isn't. Slattery is always entertaining but it feels like he's just phoning in a Roger Stirling impersonation for a paycheck and Shea is just such a boring mass-produced-for-television FBI agent. Her weird team are much more interesting than she is even though so far they are more thumbnail sketches than actual characters. At least they're thumbnail sketches I haven't seen 100 times before. Also why is it always a quirky, mysterious older outsider dude sho has secrets with a younger female FBI agent? *Cough*TheBlacklist
  17. Chase is significantly prettier than Israel Broussard. First rule of Hollywood (and social media); the prettier you are, the more shit you can get away with. Twitter is the tenth level of Hades.
  18. I swear to God I have better/more important things to be doing with my life right now than posting multiple comments in the freaking Outer Banks thread but the multi-quote is playing up like crazy and it doesn't seem to lose everything if you want to quote one post from page 1 and one from page 2. Anyway, that is my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I really wish this too. It always happens in every show and there are other male characters outside the friend group she could date. Topper seems to be turning nice now, there's him! I mean, he did try to drown her one friend and partic
  19. I find it moderately hilarious that he's even considered famous enough for people to bother #cancelling. But I guess people are really bored at this point and Twitter is still... Twitter. Oh, and that "male Debby Ryan" thing? I now cannot unsee this. Someone needs to cast them as brother and sister.
  20. I completely forgot about Bianca - I think you might be right or at the very least they're tied. Actually, there's also Stacey Dash who was 30-ish when she played Dionne in Clueless and the spin-off TV series.
  21. That's really interesting because I really don't see the two of them as being similar at all.
  22. So I have discovered that Chase Stokes is, ahem, 27. This beats Benjamin McKenzie (who was 26 when he was cast as 16-year-old Ryan on The OC) but not, in fact, Penn Badgely who was 21 when cast as Dan Humphrey or Adam Brody (24 when he started playing Seth). Still doesn't beat Gabrielle Carteris, though. Thirty years later, she still remains the undisputed reigning Queen of Very Old Teenagers (29 playing 16).
  23. "I was young and in love once. It was a disaster." Come now, salty old sea-dog who randomly and fortuitously rescued our heroes and who randomly and fortuitously happens to be headed for Nassau where the $400 million in GOLD that our teenage heroes found and then had stolen from them by evil Ward randomly and fortuitously also happens to be, I wouldn't call this a disaster per se. Demented, maybe, but it was entertaining as all hell! There better be a season two!!!!!
  24. It is almost perverse how much I'm enjoying this show. It's almost like one of the old series the Children's Film Foundation used to make in England about wholesome young people who go on holiday and stumble onto/stop smuggling operations and suchlike except this has graphic murder, violence, sex, weed and bikini cocaine parties! Aw Topper, look at you switching sides and coming through for John B and Sarah. Way to prove you're good for something other than reminding us why frosted tips went out of style the first time.
  25. Ward, Ward, Ward. You didn't think to just check that Big John was actually dead, call Mayday and say he just slipped, fell over and banged his head? All you'd have had to do then was go back to the island, get rid of John B, either by fostering him or kicking him into the foster system. Either way, you could then have just gotten hold of all the research Big John had done and figured it all out at your leisure. That is some motor John B has installed in his VW Microbus given that it can overtake a plane... This show is dumb as all hell but I am entertained by it like nothing else I
