Have introduced Crow to Life on Mars/Ashes To Ashes
He is pleased that there is minimal Bowie despite first thoughts. It's nice to watch them again, I think I missed most of the second series of AtA.

Life on Mars would be so much better
without that whinging moraliser Sam in it.

I don't know, I liked Sam. I think a lot of the humour came from him being a stick in the mud.
I just find the whole "OMG IT'S MY MUM LET ME CALL YOU MY MUM EVEN THOUGH YOU DON'T KNOW ME" thing (in both shows) absolutely mortifying. And not even in a good way.

Agreed.
It was a weak point in the plot. As was the sexual chemistry between Gene and Alex. Please...

Nooooooo
It's great! They do drag it out a little though...

It was a poorly conceived plot device to hook the female viewers IMHO
And he never got to knob her.

I quite liked his character...
...more so than I did the American version. Seen it? The ending is very twee but a good twist.

No, I don't watch American remakes.

Well you're not missing that much
Their Annie is much hotter and can actually act, but Harvey Keitel as Gene Hunt just doesn't work.

Does that mean you haven't seen The Departed?

I didn't know that was a remake
but, actually, no I haven't.

Aye, remake of 'Internal Affairs'
It is an excellent series though

in the end matt damon shoots everyone in the head
but dicaprio has sent a tape of evidence to his wife so damon's fucked and gets killed

I'm never going to watch the American version.
I cannot imagine Gene Hunt not being from Manchester. It'd be wrong.

The whole
"Hey, why youse bein' a woise goiy" 70s American cop thing is a total turn off for me. I can't bear watching films like French Connection for this reason, let alone a remake of a series that I quite like in which they appear to have missed all of the subtleties that made it watchable.

Why do 70s American cops have Birmingham accents?

(, Fri 20 Apr 2012, 14:49, Reply)
That's the accent they had in the 70s
don't you know nothing?

Is taxi driver the Luc Besson film
Where Bruce Willis drives his space taxi around trying to catch the German bank robbers?

Imagine it's Gene's American cousin

Hello you
I wanted to talk to you about something but I can't remember what it was, now. Are you doing a Masters at KCL next year?
