It's getting chilly so you must be spending more time inside doing awesome stuff on Screened right....right?!
Post links and nominate others!
I noticed the Community Showcase was light on TV stuff so I decided to start writing up some reviews/recaps of individual episodes. I'll have a few more over the course of the week as new stuff airs, but for now here's a look at the second, technically third, episode of Terra Nova.
Things are getting underway, and since I'm nothing if not ambitious, I'm planning on setting up blogs for not one, not two, but three TV shows this season. First up is "Zooey Deschanel Does TV! New Girl Season 1." Here's a link to my thoughts on this week's third episode, and bonus links to my looks at the first and second episodes.
I'll also be looking in on Revenge from week to week with "Rich People Smackdown, Revenge Season 1". It's not a show I particularly like, but sometimes it's fun to pick things apart that you think aren't working. Here's my look at this week's third episode and here's my review of the pilot and a look at the second episode too.
Last is "Shoving Everything Up Its Own Butt, Community Season 3." Here's a look at the first episode of this season and here's a look at the second. Here's a look at this week's third episode as well.
It's a lot of writing, and sorry for the expansive first post they'll get smaller I swear, but I love me some TV and I love me some writing about TV. Hopefully some folks will care enough about my blathering to read them and then some of those folks may even be kind enough to engage in some conversation afterwards. What I love about TV reviews are that they aren't final, they're an ongoing dialogue with the show and part of that is a discussion among viewers of the show.
My latest Month In Movies UK is up and I'm highlighting this week's UK Box Office Report cause it's my 100th blog post! Whether that's a good thing or not is for your to decide.
EDIT: Wait! Literally just posted my review for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy! A technical masterpiece, but a boring movie. The biggest disappointment I've had all year.
I posted reviews for Moneyball and 50/50. I totally wrote them when they came out but didn't post them here.
I wrote my first blog: http://www.screened.com/forums/hidden-gems/10/uk-comedy-gems-you-might-have-missed/16876/#1
16 people have read it so far! That's more than I expected! Yay!
Can recommend jackanderson's review of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy above, was pretty much my thoughts on the movie but better expressed. Definitely a movie I'll probably enjoy a lot more sat on my own sofa, too much time in the cinema to get annoyed at people sniffling and eating noisy food: http://www.screened.com/tinker-tailor-soldier-spy/16-198550/user-reviews/?review_id=5060
Also enjoyed Mooltipass's thoughts on Community!
A smart and engaging new show, offering fascinating glimpses into a rich mythology.
