Bodyguard (spoilers)
« on: September 30, 2018, 08:37:25 AM »
Didn't quite work for me. Parts were very good, and I like London when filmed in that BBC grey London look.

The main thing though, I don't think the motivations were strong enough to attempt to assassinate a cabinet minister. The police lady especially.
I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair. - AOC

I liked it.  It was the first show in a long time that made me put down the phone and watch it 100%.

I agree that the conclusions at the end were a bit loose.  The investigator, definitely a bit loose.  I actually had to go back and watch that bit again as I didn't "get it" the first time.  It seemed too quick to resolve.

We also never found out about Longcross.  That was left too open ended.

And how was Nadia making bombs while in police custody?!?

I too was a bit baffled by Longcross.

I'd have enjoyed it better if the acting hadn't been so bad!  ;D

We need something new to watch.  Take it that you recommend it?

Anyone watching Line of Duty?  I think that's what it's called...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Killing Eve!!!!  ;D
The only thing that would make it better for me, would be a touch less of Eve and a whole lot more of Villanelle, who I totally have a girl crush on!!!!  [smiley=smitten.gif]

I must admit I have watched that clip where she yells, "Take me to the hole!" probably 30 times. It cracks me up every single time!

My personal favourite.."You should never tell a psychopath they’re a psychopath... It upsets them."

But it's the pouty face that really does it for me!  ;D
