Re: HP facts that will leave you feeling confunded

I have read that before about Alan, with Jason spilling the beans - possibly in another link from The Lost Girls. It was in one of the many tributes published just after the lovely Alan died.

The funniest thing in that link is the tale about Putin looking like Dobby! ::rofl

Re: Everything is Connected – George Eliot’s Life (BBC)

Review: It was very arty-farty. Much depends on whether you like George Eliot or not - personally I find her rather turgid, although I have enjoyed TV adaptations of her stories. The programme is a weird combination: there are people reading bits of random GE from various works, and some people then...

Re: Everything is Connected – George Eliot’s Life (BBC)

I missed this - I shall quickly rush to watch it on BBC iPlayer!

Thanks for letting us know - I missed this when checking out BBC4 shows for the day of transmission.

Re: Article about shows canceled in first season . . .

They should have sold it to the UK. We have had all sorts of dramas here on mainstream TV that make you think. There is a current Irish crime drama that has multiple strands. I remember UK viewers kept Cagney & Lacey going because we loved it so much, after the US makers threatened to cancel it (not...

Re: Who Has Seen This...?

I saw it on a UK TV channel when it came out. It is a tough watch, and the man Jason plays is truly scary. Not pretend villain scary, but this is a real man who has killed people scary. It's also full of more swearing than is usual even for our sweary Jason, including the C word. It was a wonderful ...

Re: Hotel Mumbai UK premiere

I searched for a cinema showing Hotel Mumbai, and could not find a single one within reasonable travelling distance that is showing it! I looked last night - if it is being widely distributed in the UK it should still be on, so I can only conclude that it is not on the list of most cinemas. I checke...

Re: Red Son (new animation movie)

I heard a recent interview where Jason mentioned this, or rather it was raised by the interviewer - Jason was there mainly to talk about Hotel Mumbai. Apparently there is a graphic story well known to fans of such things, about Superman landing on Earth in Russia instead of the USA. It’s not really ...

Re: Age of Resistance Discussion Forum—SPOILERS

I have finally seen the last episode, and really enjoyed the whole ride. It will bear re-watching, as there are so many characters and it gets complicated. Am I the only one who found it difficult to tell some of the Skeksis apart? Simon Pegg's "hmmm" as the Chamberlain at least made him easy to ide...

Re: Ranking the Top 30 HP Characters

Sadly the costume department then lumbered Narcissa with the badger hair look. In the books she is very blonde and pale. Helen McCrory is a great actress, but she looked nothing like Narcissa should. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Thanks for the videos, Thunder. Nice to see & hear Jason as the Skeksis. Simon Pegg is doing a great job too.

Re: Bad news (cancelled)

Oh, that's a real shame, I wanted to see what happens, it was such a weird story. :-(

Jason seems to have quite a bit of bad luck with series having no sequels.

Re: Kate Atkinson Big Sky audio book read by Jason

I read one review of this new book where they posted a nice clip of Jason as Jackson from the TV series alongside it - even though they did not mention that he reads the audio version. Maybe the editor just likes Jason (the reviewer does, she mentioned his TV series). :D
