Non-Period Drama Films / A Discovery of Witches
« Last post by genie on September 25, 2018, 09:54:08 AM »
Is anyone watching this?

First couple of episodes are interesting.  I'm not sure but it looks like they may come together to save each other's species.

I didn't know that in the occult world that witchers created vampires .... I think I've got that right.


I think someone was able to get past YouTube taking the first episode down.

Is that not the same director that who worked with line of duty?

I am going to give this a go on my lunch breaks Genie - thank you for the heads up!!


Yep, that's the Line of Duty.  He'll start on Series 2 of Bodyguard, after finishing Series 5 of Line of Duty.
Absolutely, worth all time and effort to see - more so then the Line of Duty, I believe.

Bodyguard series 2 could set up series 3 and 4
POSTED SEPTEMBER 24, 2018 BY CULTBOX NEWS & FILED UNDER HEADLINES, NEWS.

Now that Bodyguard has wrapped up its run, the show’s creator has begun thinking about long-term planning for the future. Richard Madden’s David Budd could have three more years of blood-splattered adventures if everything goes to plan.


Writer Jed Mercurio is keen for the second series of Bodyguard to sew seeds for on-going storylines.

“We have been very fortunate with the success of series one”, Mercurio said to The Sun. “It’s probably fair to say we would probably approach any thoughts of a second series with the idea that it would create an opportunity for a third or fourth.”

Series 1 of Bodyguard wrapped up its loose ends neatly, and Mercurio explained the reasoning for doing so:

“To adopt a sporting phrase, we kind of decided to leave everything on the field for series one. If the ratings hadn’t been quite so high, then possibly everybody involved including the BBC would have said, ‘Well that was a nice little series but we’re just going to leave it at that and there won’t be any more’.”




But the ratings turned out to be massive, leaving Mercurio to say this: “we do feel very privileged and fortunate that there’s been such a response that it gives us that opportunity to at least think about doing more.”

Mercurio went on to explain that formal talks around Bodyguard series 2 will have to wait until he has finished work on Line Of Duty series 5. The police corruption drama will keep him busy into the New Year, meaning that work cannot start on more Bodyguard just yet.

When Bodyguard‘s time does come, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what Mercurio cooks up in the show’s inevitable-feeling second series that can maintain the show’s narrative for years to come.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we hear more on Bodyguard.

157 crew.
88 shoot days.

That's funny, I can understand him perfectly! I hadn't realised how much he had dialled down his accent for Game of Thrones until I heard him speak at the start of Bodyguard
And I thought it was just me not understanding him perfectly! LOL!

I love the series, in fact Richard Madden is a very good actor!  :362 Still have several episodes to watch.

  • post Black 47 review ? brutal revenge amid the horror of the Irish famine - 26 September
  • An Irishman deserts from the British army to wreak vengeance on a hated absentee landlord in a shocking but insightful dramaIrish film-maker Lance Daly has taken on the great famine of the 19th century, and its worst year, the ?Black ?47?, drawing from it an intestine-snappingly brutal movie that you could call revenge horror, or revenge western. Revenge something, anyway. And this is probably the generic result of seeing the famine not as a sorrowful tragedy, but as a matter of criminal constitutional negligence, with colonial rulers creating a serf class of disenfranchised tenant farmers, whose product was exported and who were made dependent for subsistence on a single, blight-vulnerable strain of potato.

  • post Will Poulter: ?I'm a white, straight, middle-class male. I'm aware I take things for granted? - 25 September
  • The actor?s latest role is in The Little Stranger, a film that twitches with tension about class ? which resonates with his own upbringingNo one needs to teach Will Poulter anything about checking his privilege. The career choices of this 25-year-old show an actor drawn to films with a social conscience. In scarcely more than a decade, he has left behind CGI blockbusters (one Narnia and two Maze Runners) and broad comedy (We?re the Millers, in which he snogged Jennifer Aniston and Emma Roberts, and briefly sported a swollen prosthetic testicle). Instead, he has moved on to more serious, searching projects: the below-the-breadline chamber-piece Glassland, Kathryn Bigelow?s race riots drama Detroit and now The Little Stranger, a ghost story that twitches with class tension.

  • post 'There are no different truths': the last years of Soviet cinema - 25 September
  • A new season at the Barbican tells the story of the USSR?s final generation through the lens of its pioneering film-makers?Young people are our big hope, but they spell trouble for us too.? In 1965, an administrator at the Leningrad film studio, Lenfilm, summed up an enduring dilemma for Soviet official culture. How could the Young Communist League (on paper a ?public organisation?, in practice entirely subordinate to the party leadership) mobilise the younger generation without promoting political enthusiasms of the wrong kind? Soviet cinema ? a young art form with particular appeal to the country?s youth ? was, throughout its existence, a showcase for conflicted views of young people. Its own fate, too, altered as attitudes to them changed.In the first years after the October revolution, youth activism was strongly encouraged in life and on film. Sergei Eisenstein was just 27 when Battleship Potemkin, with its martyred young leader of a naval mutiny, made him world famous. But views of political participation by children and young people changed abruptly under Stalin. Eisenstein?s Bezhin Meadow, in which a tow-haired boy leads the assault on traditional village life, ran into trouble in August 1936. This came a month after a crackdown on child psychology, which was considered ?perverted?, and at the point when patriotic values were returning to the school syllabus. Continue reading...
