Well the finale of Liar was a bit like marmite, you either loved or hated it. It was a great drama and storyline but couldn't help that it was so drawn out and I'm sorry but I wanted more of a conclusion after six weeks.
I think it could have been done in half the time and I really didn't think it needed a second series. There have been a lot of dramas that I've hoped would come back with more but I didn't feel it with this one. It didn't wow me and I got a bit bored. So now it's turned into a 'whodunnit' and there are a lot of suspects which will make a good plot for it to continue. I was left a bit deflated and wanted an ending, my reaction was 'well that was that?' Who did they think they were - Broadchurch?'. Nowhere near as good!! I think it will be lost slightly waiting for the next series, it may lose it's momentum but I may be wrong. I hope the second series is better.
Another finale was that of Cold Feet. I'm glad to say this was loads better, but then I'm a long time fan. My son came down and caught me blubbing at the end. He said 'didn't this used to be on years ago?' I explained that yes it had made it's comeback but I could tell he wasn't as enthusiastic as I was, teenagers eh?
Ohhhh I'm glad it worked out for Pete and Jenny again and will look forward to seeing Karen and David's new romances flourish, mind you this is Cold Feet, they could eventually head for disaster. Talking of that we still haven't seen Adam settled, we did shortly but you see as much as I did want him and Tina to get together at first I now think they are too different. I don't think he genuinely wants a baby but would go through with it anyway for her which is so wrong. Sarah is totally in love with him and I think he loves her too so hopefully we'll get to see him go and get his girl in the next series. There is one isn't there? If Liar has go another series then Cold Feet better have otherwise they'll be a rumble in the telly world.
I did watch Aspergers and Me with Chris Packham which I reviewed through my Autism Support Saturday yesterday and if you didn't read it it is here chris-packham-aspergers-and-me.html
I also watched the George Michael's film Freedom which I will review on Music Monday tomorrow.
I watched the very explosive (see what I did there) Gunpowder last night. If you didn't watch it just brace yourself as the first half hour is pure tension and scenes of a violent nature. You know that warning that comes up at the beginning of the programme and you think 'aye it won't be that bad', well this isn't for the faint hearted. You do have to witness these scenes though if you are going to get a grip of the reason behind the gunpowder plot. These were very violent times and you can understand the anger built up by these people who thought the only way to stop all this was to assassinate the King. Kit Harington (yep the eye candy himself) plays his actual descendent Robert Catesby who lead the plotters through this plight.
I can't actually believe there had never been a drama set around this story as it is one of the biggest moments in British history. The cast is packed with stars such as Liv Tyler, Mark Gatiss and Shaun Dooley and it is a great production. People will complain about the violence I will imagine but you have to see what made Catesby go to this extreme, nobody likes someone who tortures your family.
You can actually wait to see all three episodes on Saturday evening or they are all available to binge watch on BBC iplayer now so enjoy but remember remember the 5th of November........
Thanks for reading and I will be back for more tomorrow with Music Monday, for now though........
