    you can see where the series is going, trying to expand on the arrowhead stuff...i much preferred the film, being one of those who loved the ending of it...some of the 'mist' stuff was half-decent but it was the epitome of poor/average stephen king mini-series stuff, filled with cliches and some bizarre story choices...fab4 mentioned as if it;d been written by a bunch of teenagers and that's not far wrong, i suppose - almost like a bad bit of fan-fic/film-making...the pilot isn;t totally representative, though, as that's fucking awful...

    The series of Suburra looks interesting. Looks like a Roman Gomorrah.

    There is a film of it already on there rating 7.4. Going to give it a watch.

    I fucking love Gamorrah so if it's anywhere near as good I will be hooked.

    I don't get why there's even a series of The Mist. The film was all very self contained, it certainly didn't need expanding on.

    Plus the trailer looked like utter shit.
    i turned on netflix today and saw it and thought the exact same thing, film was a good wee film. dont see any point in a series like this.
    It's very different to the film, although it does have a look that screams "TV adaptation of Stephen King". There just seems to be a level of second tier big-ish budget that his work exists on when its on TV.

    is it worth bothering with at all?

    @onestepfromlost

    if you're a fan of turn of the century era king adaptations (i'm thinking rose red/storm of the century here) it's...er....ok

    we watched the whole thing....there are a few decent parts but a lot of filler and it's all a bit cheap...the worst bit is the pilot, we nearly gave up at that point but it did improve...a little...

    @onestepfromlost it's basically all the non-action bits of the early seasons of Walking Dead.

    I'm enjoying it more as it goes on.

    TOAST FANS: I decided to watch through toast again and am on episode 4. The episode should open with the 'FIRE. THE NUCLEAR. WEAPONS' right?

    Weirdly, they have edited it out and replaced it with 'YES' again.

    Completely unimportant but my Mrs works with Clem Fandango's brother.

    I loved toast, it took me probably half a season to get into but it's bloody funny.

    Finished watching "Five Came Back" the other day. It's a 3 part doc series about 5 Hollywood directors who volunteer to serve in WW2 and covers the work they did before, during and after the war. They work as filmakers during the war, documenting it and making propaganda films. Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, Paul Greengrass, Lawrence Kasdan and Guillermo Del Toro do talking head stuff and John Huston, Frank Capra, William Wyler, John Ford and George Stevens are the WW2 directors.

    Icarus is a good watch. Starts out with the filmaker conducting an experiment about the impact doping can have on his own performance. Then the Russian doping scandal blows up and its focus shifts to cover that.

    The wife has never watched Breaking Bad apart from glancing at the odd one I watched in the past so I've restarted that with the wife. She loved the pilot :) Im kind of excited for her knowing how the quality is consistently high all the way through and reminiscening about certain episodes.

    The new Marc Maron standup is good. Would recommend.

    That not only sets up the whole episode but also is one of my favourite studio recordings!

    Yeah, that was the next episode. I think I had extreme déjà vu or there was a glitch in the matrix.

    Good horror recommendations please

    Atmospheric rather than jump-scares preferably

    That's on the list. Ever since making a murderer I'm always on the hunt for stuff like this.

    I'm several episodes into the Confession Tapes. I'm not quite as gripped as I was with Making a Murderer but it's good so far. The first crime is a two part episode and the following have all been single episodes, so maybe that's why I don't have that urge to binge watch to get a conclusion.

    A related crime documentary is Casting JonBenet. I wasn't very familiar with the murder so it ended up a bit strange to watch. It's got great reviews though. It'a about an unsolved 90s murder of a six-year-old beauty pageant girl where there's a ransom note but the parents were the prime suspects.

    There's also an animated documentary called Tower with voices of people involved about the 1966 University of Texas clock tower shooting. That was very well done. Interesting but sad.

    EDIT: On about Toast.


    Same here, been going through it again. just finished last night. Laughed my arse off at the one where Toast tries directing the calendar girls play.

    I could just watch a full show of him in the recording booth.

    "Hi it's Clem Fandango, can you hear me?"
