I can't see a thread.

Anyone else watching?

Such a gorgeous production. Co produced by Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott. I think it's going to be very good indeed.

I was initially hooked,then got a bit bored and then the last ten mins were GRIPPING!! can't wait for next episode!

One episode a week seems positively archaic and very slow smile

I know!!

Dh was teasing ds and saying he was going to get a hat like TH's - DS wasn't quite sure if he was serious or not and look horrifiedgrin

DH and I watched last night. I liked it, DH thought Tom Hardy was able to do whatever he liked. Then we amused ourselves coming up with a list of thing that he wanted:

- a stupid accent (why change a habit of a lifetime)
- a big beard and a big hat
- a scar (very visible)
- I wanna fuck some people up
- I wanna be more clever then everyone else in a very menacing way
- oh yeah and i wanna fuck my sister

Can't believe the BBC went for it!

Having said that I did enjoy....

Ah thanks monkey, I thought it was strange.

I love that précis roller grin

And here I was having some vaguely poncey thoughts that they were playing with old western ideas of magical Africa. But he was at it with his sister before he even left, so yes, shopping list for Mr H smile
