First Draft

A collection of the interests, thoughts and inspirations of a 28 year old male who resides in London.

nNBC’s New Fall Shows

This reminds me of the content our TV dept has at work. I think the hotel channel would be a great idea! Ha ha!

I was really impressed with Sean Bean and Stephen Graham in BBC One’s Accused. I thought Sean took to the role really well and gave it a sense of dignity especially given all of the emotions his character(s) went through. 

Bravo!

The more I’ve seen of this show the more I’ve gone off it. The initial ideas of the show were interesting, the first series based on The Ripper, the second on The Krays, but they were poorly executed, especially the latter which i enjoyed more but I felt the ending was weak, not to mention the story line got a little silly towards the end. The third series however just seemed to be falling to pieces. All of the episodes seem to focus around similar plot points where the main suspect is introduced early on in the episode and until they are discovered there is a wild goose chase which ensues of which you are to assume this is all relevent, but it’s not. It seems like ITV are trying to produce quality drama like Prime Suspect but falling after a couple of hurdles. Everything seems too generic, even Chandler who has to be quirky in someway, but why? I do hope that if there is another series it does improve but they would need to get rid of Buchan for that; his character is annoying and pointless. This whole notion of looking back to previous crimes, all of which now seem to be American, doesn’t speed things up at all and seems like it is all unnecessary padding.

Now that I have seen The Final Problem, Game of Shadows, and The Reichenbach Fall, it’s interesting to compare the different representations of Moriarty. The quickest conclusion that I can make is that Eric Porter and Jared Harris both do a good job unlike Andrew Scott who I believe is awful, not only a ham actor but someone whose Moriarty would only blend in if he were in Panto. Now as for Porter and Harris, they are both very much different. Porter is slightly older and seems to do more for himself whereas Harris is cold and calculated but a little more reliant on others. I can’t really pick one over the other, and the same goes for their deaths. Some of the shots in The Final Problem were wonderful, seeing them fighting near the waterfall, whereas the battle of wits in Game of Shadows was my favourite scene in the film.

Sherlock on the other hand is easier to make a decision about, Jeremy Brett is my favourite without a doubt.
