Finished watching Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency on Netflix in the wee hours this morning - absolutely brilliant. Gonna pick up the books soon but I can highly recommend the TV series - best thing I've seen in ages.

I haven't read the whole thread, so apologies if this has come up already.

The latest series of Comedy Feeds is on BBC 3 and I found the fist 6 a bit disappointing overall. Then they threw in one more called Ackee and Saltfish, which I found delightful. It's only 11 minutes long, so won't ruin your day if you don't like it.

I've just remembered holistic assassin lady in BBC America's Max Landis re-imagining of Dirk Gently is actually quite funny. And there was me missing mushroom season.

Terrible job this half dead reading of worst reviews to bolster your own pit of an ego having never read any Douglas Adams, but out of the "throw algorithm at wall, see what bounces" nepotist version of Stephen Mangan's googley eyes lead character.

AND - it has Boomer the Cylon's engineering boyfriend playing Mr Plinkett from the redlettermedia Star Wars reviews of THE PAST!

It's really a neat little gift that wants you to not be a cynical twunt about, because Chronicle.

"Oooh, look at me being all teeny American!"

Anyway, what's the point of a review when it's the only decent thing on Netflix worth watching if you like comics.

Or nothing.

Nothing's better than comics. Even actual death.

Releasing ten million tonnes of squid ink onto the land and letting it trickle back into the sea.

And Daniel Ratcliffe plays the lead character.

I also really enjoyed The Missing, largely because of Tcheky Aayro who played Baptiste,the detective. Splendid actor.


I really like Samantha Morton, too. Did you ever see Band of Gold (TV series from the 90s) and also her appearance in Cracker (episode The Big Crunch). Bloody hell, that was more than acting.


I've just rewatched The Big Crunch; I'll try Band of Gold next. Thankyou. She really struck me, relatively recently alongside the brilliant Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Synecdoche..a film that I'm not sure I can make head nor tail of:)

Her performance as Tracey in Band of Gold was superb and shockingly convincing. Then when you learn years and years later of Samantha's troubled childhood, it becomes even more remarkable. She was only 17 or 18 when acting those parts. I take my hat off to her.

PS Thanks for the tip - I haven't heard of that one.

Robert Rauschenberg: Pop Art Pioneer - Alastair Sooke-presented programme about Rauschenberg's life and work. Very warm and sympathetic. Retrospective at Tate Modern is on now.

Does that end with the passenger jet in the forest? If so saw it a couple of years back.
