Hahahaha. Your new CBoT tag is the tag of the week. Kudos.
But, yeah, I'm quite a bit behind it all; though if you're recommending it Ape I'll have to keep eagle eyes open for it, if it gets re-shown.
I have all these shows to watch, but it means watching online, and I'm, at times, apprehensive about doing that; mainly because I like to watch these big drama productions on a big enough, decent screen, and in good quality. I can only put up with scouring the web for half decent showings to a point, lol. Maybe look out for some DVDs on the cheap. [<<<Tight bastard eh?]
Man, that is just completely shit. Sucks for everyone. Seems they didn't appear to have any luck at all. (Sorry about that one, lol.)
Yeah, I quite liked the finale, but, true, Ace left with a wee bit open. I also thought Nolte's character had more to reveal, about his history, that guy who turned up, and the history of the ownership of the horse, etc. But I still enjoyed it, and wanted to see more, just sad to see it go.
I never fully started the US Shameless. I caught bits and pieces of one or two episodes at irregular points in the first season, but I was never aware of the show actually starting here, and only caught it in scanning the TV, so I can't really comment on it too much. If I remember correctly though, the eps I seen were pretty much redo's of the British counterpart eps. All fine work, and performances; but interesting seeing it in the US environment, and US touches where the British references wouldn't translate.
Have you checked out any of the American version of Shameless yet? I'm sort of shocked at how awesome that show has become since coming into its own. Its recently-ended second season was one of the most compelling and addictive pieces of idiot box that I've seen in some time. Great, great stuff.
Yeah, it pretty much just sucks all around, but especially so for the technical crew as they were informed that they wouldn't be getting any sort of severance pay and that they were out of jobs effectively immediately. And this is just as they had begun shooting the second season, so the crew were expecting for several months worth of work ahead of them.
As a viewer, though, it was nice to see that they had at least wrapped up a bunch of story arcs, so the season finale actually worked as a series finale in many regards. Come to think of it, Hoffman's "Ace" Bernstein might have been the only character without any sort of closure. Sucks to see it go, but at least it doesn't feel as gaping open and unresolved as, say, Milch's Deadwood.
That is a shame, I would have really dug a second season. I understand that it's terrible that 3 horses died, and would never want to see that, but, they were doing a show about horse racing, in a real horse racing environment, with real horse trainers, and real horse races; that is part of that business of horse racing, it unfortunately does happen alot. They could have made it a sensitive, and poignant, part of the show. But, yeah, I guess they had to cancel it, it couldn't be condoned for entertainment purposes, even though the sport of horse racing itself can be considered entertainment.
Yeah, Luck was well-received by critics, but there was just no way in hell they could survive the PR nightmare associated with killing 3 horses to make some television. Shame, too, as the show was quite excellent. But, yeah, once the story broke on TMZ, the show was pretty much doomed.
Apey, my priMATE, how you doing?
Been really liking 'Luck', and I went online to read up a bit more about it, and just discovered it was cancelled! Was the reason really that it was at protest from PETA, because of too many horses getting hurt? Was it quite a major story? Was it well received? I enjoy it.
Thanks, my primate-mate. Not enough? I'm at 3 posts a day, haha, never thought I'd get to something like that. I know what you mean though, I feel this place is so disenchanting more often than not.
Nah, individual occurrences of that sort of thing don't deter me as such; it's the absolute multitude of them all! The unabashed, unapologetic, and undeserved, arrogance and conviction, of self certainty in their own bloated opinions of nothingness, just gets my goat a lot. Some people might be surprised at the folk that I believe this place could really do without, and sometimes I think, "I can't be the only one who thinks this way?!", but, it seems, I must be.
But hey-ho. I'll live ay, haha. I mainly only look out for about 3 or 4 peeps around here anyway, and I think I'll stick to that.
Alright man, cheers for the message. I loved the "Unintentional satire" line, I was gonna reply to his with - "Know I'm knot!", maybe with a weeee bit extra exposition on his disjointed diatribe, but I see the thread's been closed, probably for the better; mainly 'coz I really can't be bothered anymore. I really couldn't care less whether the HOF was, or wasn't, a joke, or PROVING anything to that effect. Guy just couldn't conceive the sporadic 'opinions', that he presented, blew his whole legitimacy to smithereens.
