Is it bad that I have never watched this show?

Black Adder Remastered - The Ultimate Edition  

 

 

I love Hayley Mills!  My favorite is The Parent Trap.  And I have that Thin Man collection; it's great, and I enjoyed the bios of William Powell and Myrna Loy that are included.

 

I've been working my way through Blackadder Remastered.  I'm on Blackadder the Third now.  After each series, I go back and watch the few episodes with commentary.  It also includes the Comic Relief sketch Blackadder: The Cavalier Years, the two specials (A Blackadder Chistmas Carol and Back and Forth), and something called Blackadder Rides Again, which I don't think I've ever seen before, so I don't know what to expect.

Re: What Are You Watching

For anyone who believes Rowan Atkinson can only manage mindless slapstick like Mr. Bean (I'm not a fan of that one), Black Adder proves that he can be capable of comic genius.

I like Mr. Bean, too!  I also have that complete collection, which has some stuff I haven't seen yet.  But you are right; they are very different series.

Re: What Are You Watching

I'm not watching it righ tnow, but I did just buy The River Season 1 (the only season) on DVD.  I found it on sale for $8.99 after a coupon put out by ABC.  I really enjoyed this show and was sorry to see it end after only season.  I guess I'll never get to know what happens now.

[ Edited ]

Am totally addicted to HBO adaption of George Martin's Game of Thrones series.

 

I waited faithfully for the entire series.

 

And when HBO adapted the series, I worried that so much would be lost in the translation.

 

Fabulously adapted... stunning costumes and settings...and amazing acting....

 

Ordinarily the transition from book to television can be disappointing.

 

But Cable TV is doing fabulous work.

 

I hope the series continues on and on and on....

Re: What are you watching?

IBIS, I love the Game of Thrones series, too.  I had not read the books before seeing the first two series, but I loved it so much I did buy a box set of the first four books.  So far I have only read the first one, but it was excellent and I thought that the series seemed quite faithful to it, with a few differences.  I have the first series on DVD and loved it as much when I rewatched it.  I'm looking forward to the third series!  Especially with Diana Rigg and Ciaran Hinds joining the cast!

I have scored several series from the local library: Homeland; Game of Thrones; and Breaking Bad. Loved the first two. The jury is still out on the second.

I love Homeland, too!  I had missed the first season, and then saw that it was winning a lot of awards and looked good.  Luckily, the entire first series was available On Demand, and I watched all of them and the first several episodes of the second season over just a few days, because I couldn't tear myself away.

Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season  

 

I'm having the best time. Carice van Houten shushing Liam Cunningham, Michelle Fairley waxing lyrical about men in kilts, Sophie, Masie, and Isaac beatboxing/rapping the credits. This is why I love commentary tracks.
