Didn't he hit his own glasses case?

(Btw way to go keeping those glasses safe in 15 years!)

DH and I are watching it for the laughs now. I do really enjoy it though, shite, but beautifully cooked!!

TwllBach Sat 11-May-13 20:15:15

Ha, maybe he did, maybe he did. Obviously I am not paying attention nearly enough grin

Lordy it's shite!

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 20:21:36

I'm watching this and quite enjoying it (not seen last noght's) but I agree it's no Walking Dead (glad to see so many of you on here smile) and the annoying sister is so annoying. Any chance she'll die soon?

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 11-May-13 22:16:08

Haven't seen last nights but sounds like it was a laugh - pmsl

And no chance Charlie was die

Tho she does have bambi eyes

You'll never guess the cunning plot sir!

Btw, I checked out youtube and have come to the conclusion that Billy Burke is a better singer than actor which is not difficult, I know

silly tash aside it's not bad

I am a sucker for lanky, dark haired, dark eyed men that rarely smile.

TwllBach Sun 12-May-13 00:00:50

Actually... <eyes DP>

The telly shorthand for a dangerous person is when they cut bits of apple off with a knife and eat from the blade. Extra points if it’s a hunting knife and they use it to gut someone with straight afterwards.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sun 12-May-13 18:58:02

...and they cut towards themselves, risking slicing their own thumb off, rather than placing it safely on a plate first! All whilst staring at the hero and not watching the cutting.

You are right, well spotted! grin

Dear god tonight's episode was dire.

Those tunnels were huge.... How the hell did they run out of air after 20 minutes? And if air was seeping in at that door they can't have run out of air. And if they were hallucinating from lack of air how were they tramping around for hours?

Those script writers need shooting!

I need to stop reading this thread - I love this programme!! I read this thread like "well yes, but.." And then "I hadn't quite thought of it like that" and now I'm like "OK I GET IT, IT'S FUCKING SHIT!" but I still can't wait for next Friday.

Oh, and Miles? I so would.

TwllBach Sat 18-May-13 00:00:49

I would also do Miles, but it's still shit, sorry Irrelevant grin

Sebastian Monroe for me... He's an evil bastard but oh my god I so would blush

I've not read all of this, as am currently a bit spaced out with mega period pains and codeine, but to poster talking about their clothes - it is a little far fetched that Charlie's jacket is Belstaff!! I do enjoy the programme tho, even though it's faults are plentiful. And I love the jacket!!

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sat 18-May-13 12:28:24

I so would do Miles too! grin.. I love the way he handles his sword wink

But I do love this show!! It's dire..(the oxygen thing was so lame!!) but it keeps calling me back each week.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 18-May-13 12:52:04

Not seen last night';s yet but we're starting to give up on this I think. It's just not GOING anywhere. And they seem to have got their characters from the acting school of stereotypes - we both spent ages trying to work out why Charlie and Danny's mum was sleeping with the General (and apparently had a child with him) and eventually realised it was a completely DIFFERENT thin blonde in a red dress hmm

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 18-May-13 20:27:32

we've decided to watch last night's and if we enjoy it as uch as the previous, then it's curtains for revolution

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sat 18-May-13 22:07:58

What did you think? Sold by the whole oxygen thing??

Does anyone else get creeped out by the way miles and Charlie look at each other?

They're playing and uncle and niece but keep staring lovingly into each others eyes confused

Only good characters are Rachel and Monroe imo, great chemistry between them and at least they're believable

TwllBach Sun 19-May-13 06:50:58

I think that Miles is looking at Charlie, fantasising about killing her so he can go back to his nice quiet life grin lord knows that's what I would be doing.

TwllBach Sun 19-May-13 06:53:02

The only decent one among them is Munroe IMO. I love the actor, he was amazing in ER and I saw an Australian horror film with him in and he was brilliant there too, even if the film itself was shite.

I wonder what it must be like to e a decent actor and come to the slow realisation that what you're doing is crap grin but then I suppose I wouldn't be turning down the money..

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sun 19-May-13 07:17:42

We still didn't watch it!
Charlie does puppy dog eyes at everyone, and Miles does "oh piss off" eyes at everyone grin
Yes I think Munro is fantastic, and I also think the General is good - love the fact he's a sadistic killing machine but they flash back to show him as a normal middle aged insurance salesman

TwllBach Sun 19-May-13 07:21:14

Oh heck yes, there are a number of 'normal' men that I know who are just waiting for an apocalypse situation to release their inner psycho like the General grin
