RE: [VIDEO] Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

Well, wow, what a glorious, meta, fan-serving finale - staggered how they pulled this off and kept it secret.
Maybe the one episode in the whole 55 where, although anyone could watch it and enjoy it, fans and regulars would have got soooooo much more out of it.
So many Easter eggs, lines and references to previous episodes - from the names of the cocktails to even recreating part of the first ever episode (Sardines) inside a toilet cubicle - even with Tim Key, Katherine Parkinson (or was it Amanda?...) and Anne Reid to Jason Watkins querying the bill - and the wonderful montage with scenes from previous episodes accompanied by the (can never keep a dry eye to this one) 'Time To Say Goodbye' song..
Nick Mohammed was hilarious, everyone played their part
The rumour was this was going to be an episode with just Reece and Steve couldn't have been more wide of the mark, the closing credits an astonishing 'who's who' showing just how keen actors even at the top of their game want to be in this - and to have Robin Askwith in it and finish with the On The Buses spoof that's been asked for for years and teased as a real episode last season was the icing on the cake.
The Telegraph summed it up quite well: "Tucked away on BBC Two, it never quite got the recognition it deserved. Now this criminally underrated show is coming to an end."
9/9, awesome.

RE: [VIDEO] Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

Last episode tonight 😭😭
Brief article here suggesting it be watched live but I don't think they know really.
Anyone who hasn't seen this before do yourself a favour and watch some, they're standalone, half hour stories and all available on iPlayer.
A good starting point would be S2E2, 12 Days of Christine....

RE: [VIDEO] Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

This season is absolutely smashing it.
Last but one episode completely as seen from a Ring doorbell was superb and last week's, from inside an escape room had it all.  The repeat watch (I always watch them twice) had so many breadcrumbs and clues along the way - all of which I completely missed!
Think that's 55 completely different episodes now - genius.

RE: [VIDEO] So... what are you playing just now?

Just finished Animal Well (on Switch) - great stuff, all done by one guy.
In fact, apparently the 4K backdrop for the PS5 version takes up more space that the whole of the game code!

RE: [VIDEO] The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare

I just checked and sure enough, there's a version on YouTube!  It's definitely not legit though(!?) - it's a pretty poor quality copy that is pretty dark too.

Elbow at the finally open, infamous Co-Op Live Arena.  They were superb as ever and the arena really impressive, although I did glance to the ceiling a few times..

RE: [VIDEO] Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

Thought this was a great start!
No clue where it was going and then such a wtf moment I had to watch it all again!  The clues on second viewing are so good (SPOILER:
wow, even the train is called a Replacement Service!
) but after reading the Denofgeek review, I realised there were even more.
Great stuff!

Watched the first four episodes last night, brilliantly entertaining.
Often hilarious and sad and back again within minutes, great stuff.

EAC is great but my go to is foobar2000.
I don't do too many CDs nowadays (a dozen or so a year) but I do use it to convert between filetypes and bitrates (flac to mp3 etc.)

RE: [VIDEO] Knox goes away

Really enjoyed this too. Keaton was excellent in it and Pacino steals every scene he's in, superb. Certainly a few leaps of faith required to be accepted at some of the things but do so and it's a great ride.

RE: [VIDEO] Fallout (Amazon / 2024)

Watched the first episode last night, great start! I played Fallout 3 many years back - other than going in Vaults etc and the big wasteland there were no specific things I can recall where playing them would have helped or made a difference to the TV series. That's probably my memory and I'm sure there are loads of references and Easter eggs etc. Besides all the Vault boy posters and cool Pipboy wrist things.

RE: [VIDEO] Damaged

Was it a surprise because you liked it despite it being pretty much panned everywhere so you weren't expecting to - or that you knew nothing about it so it was a nice surprise?

RE: [VIDEO] Taskmaster is back!

Still no-one watching this? 🤣
Back for S17 a few weeks back and brilliant as ever.
A real strength of the whole concept is that, unlike most other 'game shows' where someone can stand out to win because they're good/knowledgeable etc. at a particular thing, these tasks are so varied they can all excel in different things week to week.
This season has Nick Mohammed (Ted Lasso etc.) and Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9 etc.) as probably the two most recognisable guests but the other 3, and two women especially, are hilarious.
Ep 3 tonight but all available in App/online.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

Quote:
RJS says...
"Well, thank Utd for the draw that you should have won, but also neither of them looked good in that game"
Not sure about not looking good in the game, we had 28 shots?
62 shots against them in two games this season, the most any side have faced since records began.  Unfortunately for us, they've resulted in 2 goals and 2 points - which certainly ain't good.
Utd are soooo poor, you'll beat them well I'm sure.

RE: [VIDEO] Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 12

Finale done.
Total fan service and loved every minute of it.  Absolutely nailed it for me and sooooo many laugh out loud moments.
Shame it's all over but it reminded me of many of the great incidents of the past.

RE: [VIDEO] The Gentlemen (TV Series)

Thought the chicken episode was superb (2).  If you're 3 in, the next is good, didn't think too much of the one after.  Good again after.  I've got two to go.
If you think it's intense, don't watch The Bear!!  One episode in S2 has to be the most intense hour of TV I've probably seen (Fishes)...

[VIDEO] The Gentlemen (TV Series)

Wasn't sure whether to just add this to the thread for the film but decided to create a thread for it as there's no real links between the two other than the name (and director).
Anyone else watching (or watched) this?
Really loving it here - trailer below......

RE: [VIDEO] Roadhouse

Ended up straight to Amazon, much to the dismay of the director.
Anyway, it was fun enough mostly and quite poor in places too - pretty much exactly what most will expect I think.  McGregor and his smile is every bit as annoying as you would expect too.
Looking at Jake Gyllenhaal was like looking in a mirror at times..

That redirects to myreviewer though.
Your url has a dot after dvd too, I'm talking about good, old http://www.dvdreviewer.co.uk/Forums

@RJS, dvdreviewer doesn't redirect though if that's what you were expecting..

"it stopped properly existing ages ago, been myreviewer for long long time."
They have both co-existed for a long time but the dvdreviewer domain stopping is definitely only in the last few days...

Is dvdreviewer no more?......

Haven't been able to access the site for a few days (http or https) on a couple of browsers  on the PC so thought there was an issue - but it was OK on the phone, even via ISP, which was obviously weird..
I just realised my phone actually accesses myreviewer, not dvdreviewer though!
Do most access via myreviewer and it was just me? 🤣
Are you not using the dvd site name anymore RJS?
