    Well, all 6 episodes watched.
    Maintained its high standard.
    Bit low on the breast count though.
    Excellent series with a thought-provoking set of conclusions.

    I love you - now die.

    Documentary on Sky. I was quite interested in it as a Sociologist but I finished it absolutely furious. Imo, it's compulsive viewing, especially if you have dealings with young adults.

    Watchmen wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I’ll stick with it, but, bloody hell, it’s slow paced and depressing.

    As indeed was the original source material at times, especially when Tales of the Black Freighter is included.

    I‘m interested in where they’re going to take this!

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    So did anyone watch the BBC's new drama His Dark Materials? They've been plugging it a lot this past week. I hadn't realised that it was written by the same guy who wrote the Golden Compass, though I did draw a comparison to that when I saw the trailer. The scenery and effects were really good but I thought that the story so far is poor. I didn't think much of the Golden Compass when I saw that either though.

    The film and tv series are adaptations of the same book.

    The film significantly toned down the anti religious aspects of the book, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Sunday night telly version copes.

    Dublin Murders

    A mate suggested that me and the Mrs might enjoy this series on the Beeb.
    The Mrs loves it and thinks it is a thoughtful, engaging series, well acted, scripted and filmed.
    It has left me feeling totally unimpressed.
    I find the Dublin accent makes the dialogue so difficult to interpret that sub-titles are really needed.
    The pace, to me, is pedestrian - almost as if they want to have an Irish version of Scandi-noir.
    For that to be successful I think needs stronger actors - both the leads are under-powered and not quite up to the requirements of the parts they are playing.
    Maybe I am in a minority here!

    Saving it up to watch on IPlayer when the Mrs returns from her south-coast trip.
    I read the books to my kids when they were little - much to Mrs S 1 and 2s Roman Catholic disgust as the novels are anti-religion and pro-atheist.
    The novels I thought were well written for a 10 - 15 year old audience, but while widely held to be appropriate for all ages, I found them to be a bit too juvenile for me to really rate them highly.
    I saw the film "The Golden Compass" which was intended to be the first in a trilogy,but which flopped at the box-office, and thought it fairly well adapted from the first book, but it lacked the dark overtones that run through the book.
    It was more like a children's film aimed at children, but without the attention-grabbing and holding power needed to get kids to buy in to it.
    I hope the TV serialisation has that dark edge missing from the film.
