Was it A Difficult Watch.

I was watching Brian Cox on BBC2

It was pretty fantastic. I normally roll the eyes a bit when they do that warning at the start they now have for anything that has anything in it, post 9PM. But it was justified this time! Blimmin' disturbing alright!

I bailed out after twenty minutes. It triggered all those feelings of fear and disorientation of your first day at the new school.

Aw, I thought Dave Clark's dodgy musical was getting a reappraisal for a moment.

We were watching an Antiques Road Trip on iPlayer.

Scally McScouseface's throat's healed well.

I thought this was bloody marvellous. Sat through all three episodes fully absorbed. I hadn't seen anything by Jimmy McGovern for a long time but he's still an outstanding writer. This is not hack Sunday night gritty drama by any means.

Seeing Tommy Hunter alive will do that.

I also agree it was excellent. I think Sean Bean deserves a lot of praise.

Me too. I've just finished the final episode and it was terrific telly. Great performances and writing.

Brian McCardie chilling as Jackson as well.

ChankNolen - 09 Jun 2021 14:56:31 (#11 of 28)

Was there any...ahem....prison bumming?

carterbrandon - 09 Jun 2021 22:21:42 (#12 of 28)

That's always seemed more of an American TV/fim trope. Certainly never showed up in Porridge.

popstar7 - 09 Jun 2021 22:27:10 (#13 of 28)

Jimmy McGovern is a much better writer than that.

HouseOfLametta - 09 Jun 2021 22:55:11 (#14 of 28)

With these feet?

Just watched the 2nd one. What a writer. Bean and Graham are stupendous, as are they all. Found the turps scene hard to watch.

popstar7 - 10 Jun 2021 22:29:07 (#16 of 28)

I spend a lot of time watching UK dramas wincing at terrible dialogue. You can watch three hours of McGovern's work and there won't be a single bad line. Not one.

saskia - 10 Jun 2021 22:43:16 (#17 of 28)

He's a master of his art.

I wondered whether the cyclist had lights on, so went back to check.

popstar7 - 10 Jun 2021 23:48:05 (#19 of 28)

Example: I know Line of Duty isn't trying to approximate anything like the real world but it would help enormously if it didn't have facepalm dialogue like this. The acting's not great but what are actors supposed to do with a script where people talk like this?

Just watched episodes 2 and 3. Brilliant telly although I seem to have got something in my eye.
