Not seen The Patient but recommended by family.

Slow Horses was favoured - Slow Horses is magic.

Damn, up to episode 5 (of 6) so far, and its far better than the first season, which was clearly setting the characterisation groundwork and getting the basics in place. Here in season 2, we have plot, action, its dark, characters from S1 die.

Best thing on TV for a considerable time.
 Slow Horses - CGNorwich
Yes , yesterday's episode was very good. Outstanding series. Great raincoat

A[so recommended Glass Onion - film on Netflix - Tremendous fun ' Daniel Craig's accent is outrageous

Motherland - Christmas special. One of the best comedies on TV. Great cast Anna Maxwell Martin, Lucy Punch, Diane Morgan especially

Looking forward to the Detectorists on Boxing Day.

 Slow Horses - Zero
I kind of assumed the theme was an old stones track, mostly because you dont get to listen to it all the way through, Jagger sound like he is in his prime, and the dark haunting theme sound has the same feel as Gimme Shelter, and that was 1968!

They've taken a lot of liberties with the books, which had more characters and more involved plots. In the book series Peter Judd is an undisguised ringer for Boris Johnston and the character of Jackson Lamb is obnoxious enough to make the TV version look warm and cuddly.

Of course I understand that i is very difficult to translate a book into film word for word, and Slow Horses is a hugely enjoyable watch on it's own merits. I've only got the last episode to see and I can't wait for the third series.

Bob & Paul head off to Norway, or more specifically, the Lofoten Islands. Jaw dropping scenery, great aerial footage....the episode only spoiled by Ulrika Jonsson showing up for 5 minutes and contributing sweet FA to the programme.

In the previous century I borrowed my FiL’s old Discovery and we took it to Bergen from Newcastle with Color Line. Next time I need to drive much further north. A lot further in fact.
 Gone Xmas Fishing 2022 - tyrednemotional
...Lofoten and Vesteralen much recommended...

...and yes, I watched it (the Church at Flakstad had the campsite we used there in the background).

Got as far as the Vesteralen first time in the 'van years ago, Lofoten rather more recently.
 Gone Xmas Fishing 2022 - legacylad
Sounds like a fabulous road trip...do tell.

I’ve already packed my tent in my minds eye...now, how to get there...
 Gone Xmas Fishing 2022 - tyrednemotional
Since the ferries to both Norway and Denmark have ceased, it's one hell of an undertaking. (though even before, Lofoten was, which is why we only reached Vesteralen before turning round on an earlier visit).

Frankly, a motorhome makes the thing viable, hotels and lack of self-catering render it difficult and expensive. Your use of tents and similar might mitigate the downside (most/many Scandinavian campsites have huts, often little more than wooden tents, which make touring possible and more cost-effective, not least because they also have communal kitchens which make self-catering easier).

You really do need to travel to get the best of things. The distances can be quite daunting - the end of the Lofoten, for instance, is near 1000 miles from Bergen - and the closest you're going to get on the ferry is Rotterdam/The Hook ( or possibly Ijmuiden).

To get the best experience, travelling up through Central Sweden (faster/easier roads) and coming back through Norway is probably the best option. Sweden has its own, though different, attractions.

I absolutely adore Scandinavia (Denmark less than Sweden/Finland/Norway) and a road trip, properly planned, is to die for.

The Lofoten is the best scenery yet (though other locations have had other advantages). If we head out again (possibly next year) we might target Senja - the large island further North, and rather more quiet).

You have to work at getting walking routes in the midst of an awful lot of wilderness, but if you do, it ain't half rewarding.

Forget the stick of rock, could you bring me back a swede, preferably the blue-eyed blonde variety.

:)
 Gone Xmas Fishing 2022 - legacylad
From memory it was a 3 week trip, the first of which was attending a conference in Bergen.

After that we only got as far north as Aldesnes, following the coast and using short ferry crossings to save inland detours. Went up the highest mountain, Galthoppen or something (fat pig). It was recommended you have a guide, roped up for the glacier crossing. Being tight wads we just followed in the footsteps of a walking party and got shouted at for not paying the guiding fee. It was a simple walk with crampons.

Loved the roll mop herring for breakfast. We had an exhibition stand at the conference, and obtained written permission from the Norwegian Embassy to bring alcohol into the country. Duly declared, we brought in suitcases full of decent wine. My partner at the time worked in sales, we rationed the free exhibition booze, then on our trip she negotiated free B & B accommodation in exchange for bottles of expensive wine.

>>could you bring me back a swede, preferably the blue-eyed blonde variety.


...first time I went to/through Sweden (to Norway, actually, almost 40 years ago), I used the train (free, and first-class due to my railway "perks" ;-) ). Harwich/Hook to Copenhagen, Copenhagen to Oslo, Oslo to Bergen.

The Copenhagen to Oslo leg was overnight, by sleeper and the train ferry from Helsingor to Helsingborg. (I don't think the latter now takes carriages, but essentially the train was shunted in sections onto the boat and carried across on the ferry, allowing you, at least in theory, to sleep through. Building the bridges changed travel practice big time).

I was gently awoken from my slumbers on arrival at Helsingborg by an archetypal Swedish blonde border patrol officer asking for my passport - I did wonder whether I was dreaming!

During a London train strike in the early eighties a colleague, having supped very well, returned to the office intending to kip down in the first aid room. Unfortunately he got out of the lift on the wrong floor and caused some alarm to female members of staff of another occupant who were in their night attire.

Out man retreated to our floor and very quickly dropped off.

Thirty minutes later he had the company of two Met Officers and a very large Alsatian, which insisted on sniffing his knackers.....

I had an online 'relationship' with a Canadian woman living in Malaga a couple of years ago.

Her middle name was Aurelia (golden) her mother was Swedish and her father was Spanish, quite a fiery mix!

Breast cancer won out eventually - even after the lumpectomy and all the chemo. :(
 Gone Xmas Fishing 2022 - zippy
>>Canadian woman...

Truly sorry to hear that Dog.

I had a relationship with a 6ft tall Canadian lass a long time ago. Amazing times.
 Gone Xmas Fishing 2022 - Dog
Thanks zippo. Christina was just under 6ft. She actually came to Spain to die. She met up with her father's extended Spanish family and had loads of friends in Canada and Spain.

She had a lot of 'stuff' going on regarding her parents - her father in particular!! I felt so sorry for her and tried to help her.

She went back on the fags in the end, and her diet was far from healthy - what's the point when you know the inevitable outcome.

Her online name was Allheart, that may give you some idea of her.

Finished watching this last night. More that lived up to its early promise. It’s set in Ireland and the five sisters in question are a varied but close knit group.One of them is married to a wealthybut thoroughly unpleasant and controlling character. The sisters decide to get rid him.

Great cast. Definitely recommended.
 The Pale Blue Eye - Zero
Netflix - The Pale Blue Eye

The Pale Blue Eye is a 2022 American mystery thriller film written and directed by Scott Cooper, adapted from the 2003 novel of the same name by Louis Bayard. It tells the story of veteran detective Augustus Landor who, in 1830 West Point, New York, investigates a series of murders at the United States Military Academy with the aid of Edgar Allan Poe, a young military cadet. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Christian Bale and Harry Melling as Landor and Poe respectively, along with Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones, Harry Lawtey, Simon McBurney, Timothy Spall, and Robert Duvall.

Its a bit measured (unkindly you may say slow) and intense, but builds nicely to what seems a conclusion, and then throws in a twist. Gorgeously filmed, brooding and stark, worth a couple of hours of evening viewing.

Just found this after recommendations from mates.

Watched season 1, some of it "from behind the sofa". It's hard to imagine people being that evil.

Gritty and good but not for the squeamish (like me).
 Happy Valley - martin aston
I too am squeamish but, as far as the first episode goes, it wasn’t too bad. Some horrible people and threats/violence but without much gore. Maybe we have different triggers. Anyway I thought it was brilliant.
 Happy Valley - John Boy
I'm a bit confused here. I think Martin is writing about Episode 1 of Season 3 and Zippy is writing about the whole of Season 1. Have I got it right?
 Happy Valley - zippy
All of season 1 for me - watched over two evenings this week.

Can I claim to be a victim here? Mrs Z loves these things * and insists on watching them with me - I often feel traumatised afterwards :-D

*Silent Witness, Waking the Dead, Grace, Vera, Line of Duty etc, etc, etc. I feel drained afterwards.

I enjoy some of that kind of series. I've long since given up on Line of Duty - too complex and over dramatised. Shetland, which i watched recently, struck me as really good. For me, the best thing about Happy Valley (Season 1 & 2) has been the relationship between the two sisters. The worst thing was the sound quality.
 Happy Valley - Runfer D'Hills

>> drained afterwards.

My wife likes all those sorts of programmes too. I can’t begin to be interested in any of them. There’s enough misery in real life without adding it to what is supposed to be entertainment in my view.

Actually, it would seem that some (most maybe) people watch way more TV in general than I do. I’m not good at sitting doing nothing much. I tend to fall asleep if I sit down for more than half an hour anyway.

I’m better off tinkering with something in the garage or shed in the evenings or going out for a walk with the dog, or for a swim, or anything really rather than sitting staring at a screen.

When I lived alone, I didn’t even own a TV, it was only when “she” moved in that I was coerced into buying one. I just didn’t seem to want one at the time.

I do watch some things now of course, but anything that involves dead bodies or is to do with ballroom dancing, jungles, big brothers, ice skating or identifying people performing in masks is definitely not on my agenda.

 Happy Valley - BiggerBadderDave
'There’s enough misery in real life without adding it to what is supposed to be entertainment in my view.'

I'm a bit like that. I've got a DVD of Boys from the Black Stuff which I absolutely love but I can't watch an episode unless I've suddenly acquired a new client or won the tender.

We’re kindred spirits, although I prefer to bury my head in a book rather than potter in a shed.
3 books currently on the go...a Jo Nesbo ( usual gruesome), A very short intro to the Spanish Civil War by Helen Graham, and One Man’s Morecambe Bay by Cedric Robinson.

Pooped tonight, rarely watch any TV on holiday, or at home...took a minder with me today into the mountains. Just in case I didn’t return from a rather adventurous steep sided barranco off the beaten track. That’s my adrenaline kick for a day or two.
 Jo Nesbo - Fullchat
Love Jo Nesbo's books but Macbeth really screwed my head. Stuck it to the end though.
 Happy Valley - CGNorwich
You probably wouldn’t enjoy the Audio book I’m currently listening to then. It’s “Mortal Monarchs, 1000 Years of Royal Deaths” by Suzy Edge. Explains in details how all our monarchs died and the likely cause. Absolutely fascinating and highly recommended if you’re not squeamish and of course a handy antidote to “Spare”

Between us we have lived in Elland, Halifax, Huddersfield and Brighouse and we have great fun spotting locations that we are very familiar with. Sally Wainwright is from Sowerby Bridge and the dialogue is absolutely spot on, you could learn vernacular West Riding from this programme. It's far better in this respect than the usual Yorkshire stereotypes speaking with a non-existent all-purpose northern accent that usually turn up in TV and film drama (including "Summer Wine"). There's a lot of humour in Happy Valley too, which perhaps goes over the head over those not tuned in to it.

Sarah Lancashire is also noticeably better at the accent and dialect than e.g. Derek Jacobi, Ann Reid and Nicola Walker in Last Tango despite the fact that she (Lancashire) is actually from Oldham.

There were complaints about the sound quality of the earlier series of HV, which the BBC blamed on the accent/dialect. Despite that they seem to have fixed it...

I can see why you might not enjoy it. I did in fact say "gritty!" when I watched the first episode of this series.
 Happy Valley - tyrednemotional
>>.....and we have great fun spotting locations that we are very familiar with.

...they had to go to Bolton for the café scene, though. (Sheffield obviously doesn't have much of a "café scene"..........or a prison for that matter ;-) )

I've mentioned before the Mrs B and I have got hooked on Gaelic Language TV including the nineties soap Machair set on Lewis and The Hebridean Mermaid about the Western Isles seascapes.

Now there's a new drama based around a Tweed Mill and set in Harris:

mgalba.com/bbc-alba-weaves-bold-stories-in-new-drama-series-an-clo-mor-the-great-cloth/?lang=en

Watched the first episode tonight. Drama wise it's run of the mill but loving working out where on Harris different bits are filmed. The building playing The Mill is an old school house but is it or is it not Stocinis?

At least two of the female actors were in Machair as twenty something students. Now in their forties....

...yeah, you might even manage to find it if you use the Scottish version of "Ian". :-(

(Being broadcast on BBC Scotland means it isn't available on terrestrial TV to us Sassenachs. It is available on Freesat in England, however, otherwise it's iPlayer. I've watched most of the various series - it's a bit "niche", but enjoying walking and knowing the locations helps.

I've only visited the OH once, in the 'van. We did much of the length out and back from Stornoway, enjoyed it immensely, and would like to return. The scenery is to die for!).

I'll have look for that. Done a few bits of the Hebridean Way as short/shorter walks. The Maaruig road to Laxadale Lochs on the Scalpay road is a nice half day toddle on an old drove road but needs a second driver or careful coordination with buses.

The Coffin Road from east to east or vv is a good walk too. The soil on East Harris is too shallow for burials and the deceased were carried through the hills to graveyards on the West Coast's Machair.

We're up there again in June staying, as usual, at a place called 5 Caw just outside Tarbert.

Daughter, son in law and Grandson have booked a cottage near Kyles Scalpay for the same week.

 All Quiet on the Western Front 2022 - Zero
Netflix, German made, up for several oscars.

Think its the third film of the book, and probably the worse.

The good bits, it portrays the sheer horror & slaughter of WW1 graphically*, Cinematography is very good, acting good, and fulfils the futility of war theme of the book.

But, severely disjoined jumping all over the place location and time wise with little linkage, no real introduction to the characters - all very annoying. And it takes little from the book other than theme.

*overdone tho, some people take an unfeasibly long time to die.

Worth a watch? if nothing else available I guess so
