    Fantastic viewing. A few loose ends didnt get explained but didnt take away from the compulsive viewing-we got home at 2am-3am with clock change-sat and watched the 2 we'd missed.
    Did you catch the teaser for series 2 after the credits?
    Think iplayer can only have 13 episodes of a series at a time. The Spiral is on next wk, not seen it before but s1+2 were on a yr or so ago I think-new series 3 from sat.

    • Just revisited Beverly Hills Cop 1+2 and Point Break this week. Point Break might just be my favorite bad movie. Interestingly directed by last year's Oscar darling Kathryn Bigelow (!)

        • MACGRUBER!!

          my thirst for dodgy SNL-affiliated comedy movies is unquenchable.

          It's no 'Anchorman' or 'Hot Rod' - - but pretty good fun with some MEGA LOLZ in it.

              Yep - looking forward to Autumn when it will be on - 10 episodes this time, which will cut some of false end storylines. Cheers for the Spiral tip!

              • Das Experiment

                Good, exciting German film from 2002 by the director of Downfall based on the Stanford prison experiment. Moritz Bleibtrau has a very rubbery face, although you see just as much of his arse

                "Ja, Herr Strafvollzugsbeamter"

                  I've seen that - very good indeed as I recall though a bit grim.

                    • Haven't seen it yet, but while researching a film my son mentioned about a rabbit that shits chocolate I came across the plot summary of Hop.

                      I haven't been so excited about getting stoned and taking my kid to the movies since Speed Racer.

                      SPOILER ALERT (if you can salvage any sense from this)

                      On Easter Island, E.B. (Russell Brand), a teenage rabbit, is intended to succeed his father (Hugh Laurie) as the Easter Bunny. However, E.B., intimidated by the calling's demands, runs away to Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer. While the young rabbit struggles to find a home, unsuccessfully asking Hugh Hefner to take him in at his Playboy mansion, his father sends his royal guard, The Pink Berets, to find his son. Meanwhile baby-chicken Carlos and his music-obsessed assistant Phil plot to take over the Easter organization.

                      Wandering through Los Angeles, E.B. is hit by Fred O'Hare (James Marsden), an out of work slacker who was driving to the house he is then the caretaker of. Feigning injury, E.B. persuades Fred to take him in as he recovers. Unfortunately, E.B. causes trouble in the home and Fred attempts to abandon him in the wilderness. However, E.B. persuades the human to help him by claiming to be the Easter Bunny, whom Fred saw in operation in his youth. When the rabbit sees the Berets closing in on him while waiting in the parking lot while Fred is having his interview, he is forced to flee into the business. Although he enjoys a successful recording session with the Blind Boys of Alabama as their substitute drummer, he ruins Fred's job interview in the process while getting a tip about an audition opportunity with David Hasselhoff.

                      Meanwhile, Easter Chick Carlos (Hank Azaria), disappointed that he is not allowed to take E.B.'s place, plots a coup d'état against the Easter Bunny.

                      Promising to leave Fred alone if the human helps him get to the audition, E.B. eventually performs for the star. Hasselhoff, both impressed with the rabbit's performance and accustomed to talking things, invites him to perform on his show in a few days time. Afterward, Fred (with E.B. hiding in a satchel) is obliged to attended his precocious adopted younger sister's Easter school pageant, but E.B. alarmed that the Pink Berets have apparently found him, dashes out and disrupts the show even as Fred tries to stop him. Trapped on stage and wanting to hide E.B.'s intelligence, Fred feigns a ventriloquist's act with the bunny's cooperation as his dummy and they lead the show in singing "I Want Candy."

                      Although both his younger sister and father are angry about the upstaging, Fred is inspired to be the Easter Bunny himself. Although E.B. is skeptical, he agrees to train the human and eventually finds that Fred has some genuine talent for it. On the day of E.B.'s performance, the Pink Berets have found the house. Although he tries to fake his death with a frozen turkey dressed in his clothes in a cook pot, E.B. cannot bring himself to abandon his dream and leaves for Hasselhoff's show.

                      The Berets see the turkey, and horrified that the human in the house has apparently killed E.B., capture Fred and take him to Easter Island. Once there, Fred is held captive and confronted by the Easter Bunny and Carlos about killing E.B.. At this opportunity, Carlos ignores Fred's protests about the truth of the decoy and seizes control of the Easter factory.

                      As this is happening, E.B. is wrecked with guilt at selfishly abandoning his friend to the point where his own reflection is berating him about it. After discussing the situation with Hasselhoff, the star advises him to go back and help his friend with no hard feelings for this sudden departure. When he finds evidence of the Berets' capture of Fred, E.B. races back to the factory.

                      At the Island, E.B. is tossed into the chocolate bunny carving line. Fred and E.B.'s father are tied with black licorice and are to be boiled alive. Fred eats his way out enable his and E.B.'s father's escape while E.B. survives by dodging the blades. Carlos, now a chick-bunny combination due to the Easter magic, tries to lead the Easter sleigh out with Phil directing via lighted wands. E.B. improvises a drum session. Uncontrollably driven to dance to the beat, Phil provides the wrong signals, causing a crash and Carlos is subdued.

                      At the conclusion of this crisis, E.B. decides to accept his responsibilities. Remorseful for denigrating his son's interests, E.B.'s father compromises by appointing both E.B. and Fred co-Easter bunnies to address the workload concern. Fred's family is now proud that he has a job and responsibilities, although they are a little creeped out on the over said job's nature.

                      • Revisited Sea Of Love this week. Pacino and Goodman were great together in this one. Used to love these straight ahead late 80s/early 90s thrillers. They don't make too many like those anymore, except maybe for Fracture with Anthony Hopkins and a few others...

                        • Watched 'Burlesque' last night.Surely one of the best horror movies of recent times .Last week I watched 'Doppelganger' with Drew Barrymore. They just don't make them like this anymore. Late-80s, early-90s erotic thrillers is where it's at.

                          • Had another get-together with some mates to watch some exploito/ genre flicks and drink booze.

                            This was the line up:

                            THE DEAD NEXT DOOR


                            Ace 80's low-budget regional Zombie/ cult mayhem. Loads of wonky SFX and makeup. Sam Raimi had a hand in it somewhere.

                            WARRIORS OF THE WASTELAND


                            (AKA 'The New Barbarians') Bonkers Italian post-apocalyptic sci fi nonsense from the director of 'The Bronx Warriors'. Absolutely great fun - It was like the sci fi story within 'Gentlemen Broncos' with added male rape.

                            DEMONS


                            Fun and highly 80's gore rubbish about a demonic outbreak in a cinema. Directed by Mario Bava's son.

                            THE BEYOND


                            Finally got round to picking up the full uncut version of Lucio Fulci's nightmarishly disjointed Zombie masterpiece. Everyone was pretty sleepy and boozy by this point, but i still really enjoyed it.
