QuoteChannel 5's Submarine: Life Under the Waves. I always like these sort of documentaries and this one is very good so far. How on earth anyone could live and work in a metal tube like this is beyond me - hats off to those guys. I've met a few submariners in my time and they all seem a little bit odd; maybe that's not the right word but there is something about them (not in a bad way, just different). I did spend some time on HMS Nottingham and that felt claustrophobic and I was always ducking everywhere (I'm 6'3"), but the ExO was taller than me - must have been awful for sailors that tall. But subs must be a different world. Nope, not for me.
QuoteCinema ParadisoI was expecting to watch the 174-minute Director's Cut sent to me by, erm, Cinema Paradiso, even more so when I pulled the Blu-ray out of its sleeve that displayed the running time as 174 minutes.However, it turned out I'd actually been sent the two-hour original theatrical version, but I just saw it as less to sit through should I not enjoy it that much.I needn't have had any concerns; this is a wonderful homage to cinema, love, loss and escapism, and I was completely swept along by it all. It's sentimental, yes, but I'm a bit of a sucker for that unless it strays into mawkishness - which this never does.Now I just need to get hold of the Director's Cut...
QuoteMissions on iPlayer https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6445112/. A French Sci-fi TV Series of 10 short episodes. The first manned mission to Mars by the French (yeah right!) is met by a surprise that someone else has got there before them. I'll give it 6/10 for effort as the story itself is quite good, just that this show doesn't execute it very well. The effects are quite poor too, but the acting is OK apart, oddly, the English speaking actors. Strange too that these Americans and English are all fluent in French.
Quote from: GlezgaRed on Yesterday at 04:30:11 AMJust finished Season 2 of Missions (quiet 2 nights in work for a change), decent enough again with some themes from other Sci-Fi shows introduced to the mix......might get a 3rd Season with the ending.
