The Sopranos

I know I've gone on about this before, but I just got done watching the whole series again and ffs it's so damn good.

The character arcs, the storylines, the acting, the fact that some storylines never get finished leaving it to your imagination(Pine Barrens episode springs to mind), all amazing. But for me the best thing about the show, is that it's dressed up as a Mafioso type show, but it's so much more than that.

RIP James Gandolfini and Frank Vincent.

{Ed025's Note - great show that hsf..

It is Ed, it's a shame I could never convince Ed001 that it's a good show =[
The Wire too. Makes me sad for modern TV shows, they just don't even come close.

{Ed025's Note - gandolfini was excellent hsf but i think my favourite character was pauly, it was the most believable of all the mafioso series for me mate..


2.) 10 Feb 2019 09:23:23
Pressed send too early lol. I think my favourite character was Corrado "Junior" Soprano. He had the best lines in the show in all honesty, and I think his acting especially in the later episodes, where he's been diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer's is just out of this world.
I think I'd have to throw Johnny Sacremoni in there as an honourable mention, he did a really good job(they all did really. ).

{Ed025's Note - it was a great series mate..

Yes, Paulie Gaultieri was awesome, funny and terrifying at the same time lol.

The scene with the football coach, where he's trying to give him the 50 inch TV.
"Let me tell you something, Guido..."
"My name is Clarence"

Hilarious!

Id put the wire at no 1 and the sopranos at 2. The ending cost it points. But great tv show, some fantastic characters, great scenes, great lines, amazing cast. Paulie was great but even characters like Silvio an ralphie all were scene stealers.

I thought the same for a long time too Mort, that the ending could have been better. But that last scene in the diner, you see everything from Tony's perspective.

Door opens and bell rings.
You see Tony look up.
You then see who comes through the door.
This happens several times, then after the guy in the members only jacket has gone into the toilets, you hear the bell ring, Tony looks up - cut to black(Tony shot dead).
There is also a line from Bobby in an episode when they are sitting on the little fishing boat, where he says "you probably don't even know it happens, right?" Or something similar, there is also the scene when Silvio is at a dinner with someone from New York who gets whacked - the sound cuts out and Silvio has no idea what's happening until the 2nd gunshot is fired and blood is splattered on his face.

This video explains it - starting from 2:52 on the video.

Oh Mort, you may also be pleased to know that they're doing a prequel to The Sopranos, it's called The Many Saints of Newark and it's about New Jersey in the late 60s. James Gandolfini's son is going to be in it, as a young Tony, which is pretty cool!

Travelers:

I really enjoyed this so far and I've still got 1 more season to go.
In a nutshell, it's basically people from the very far future transferring their conciousness into people who were about to die in the 21st century, in order to prevent a series of disasters in their own timeline.
They operate in secret, but have to continue living the lives of the people they took hold of. It can get quite messy in places, but it works.

The acting is decent, the story is well written and it's not been over cooked with CGI.
I very much recommend this show.

Anyone seen the SyFy show Helix?

It's a show about a Laboratory in the Arctic,which conducts research into pretty much anything that's deadly.
They have a "minor" issue where 3 scientists get infected with some kind of disease and the CDC(Centre for Disease Control) are called in.

I haven't watched all of it yet, I'm only on the 5th episode of the first season, but one thing I will say, is so far this could quite easily have been a 28 Days Later prequel show. There are a lot of similarities with the infected and how they act.

That being said, it's not bad. The acting and script could be better, the concept of "zombies/infected" is running a little thin, but it's nice to see it happen from the very beginning for once, rather than half way through.

Well this show became a complete cluster of randomness and chaos. Season 1 was good considering some of the acting was really bad(yeah I'm looking at you Hiroyuki Sanada aka the Japanese Keanu Reeves), it had it's good parts and some really cool twists, but Season 2 was bad imo.

They tried to do two stories at once, one being present day and one being 30 years into the future, and it just became a giant mess. Some of the plot twists in season 2 were completely wasted, because it was so badly executed.

They also did this really awkward and strange episode, where Hiroyuki Sanada went insane... It carried so many racial stereotypes on Japanese people, that it was totally cringe.

So there is a Star Wars TV show coming.
It's called "The Mandalorian".

It will star Pedro Pascal (Narcos) as an outlaw, who hails from the same warrior tribe as Jango and Boba Fett.

It's going to be Written by Jon Favreau

{Ed001's Note - now that sounds good! Ed007 will be wetting his pants with excitement.}


1.) 01 Dec 2018 19:18:27
It's actually one that I think I might watch. I'm not a fan of Star Wars in a movie sense, I just see too many similarities in the movies with religion in general. But I do enjoy reading about the battles in the Star Wars universe, finding out the origins of the Mandalorians would be pretty cool, as it won't involve all the "hokey pokey religious stuff"(As Han says).

{Ed001's Note - I grew up with Star Wars, so love it. I was always very interested in the Samurai and martial arts in general, which Lucas based it on, rather than religion as such.}


2.) 02 Dec 2018 06:09:17
Yeah see I grew up in the prequel movies era and actually prefer them to the first trilogy. According to some "super fans" who went to see the movies all dressed up, that means I am not entitled to an opinion =[ lol.

{Ed001's Note - you prefer the prequels? It makes me fear for you as they are dreadful films.}


3.) 02 Dec 2018 07:34:16
Would it help if I said that I didn't even like the prequels? That's how much I didn't enjoy the first trilogy lol.
Given that I disliked them both, the way I say I "prefer" them is based on the little things. For example Yoda seems like a wise ancient Jedi master, and clearly one of the most powerful among the Jedi in the prequels, but all I think of from the first trilogy is the child like goblin from the swamps and I literally can not get that out of my head. Lol.

If it helps, I really hated that Jar Jar Binks guy, but I did thoroughly enjoy the "Darth Jar Jar" theory, that was great!

{Ed001's Note - no it doesn't help. I can't get my head around you not liking the originals!}

So there is a horror show on Netflix which is making waves at the minute.

The Haunting of Hill House

It's essentially a remake of the events from the 1963 movie "The Haunting", but put into a TV Series.
Apparently it's so scary that people are developing acute insomnia and vomiting through fear and anxiety whilst watching it.

I don't personally like horror movies/shows due to my vivid imagination, but I'm interested to know if this is genuinely that scary, anyone seen it?

hsf

1.) 24 Oct 2018 14:23:10
have seen it and tbf isn't that scary! One scene probably made me job the most I ever have, but in fairness real good story and characters. Really enjoyed watching it and binged it in a weekend!


2.) 25 Oct 2018 11:46:16
Mrs is watchin it, she says it ain't that scary, saying that nothing scares my Mrs lol
