Watched the first two episodes of The Bridge II on BBC4 tonight.
I didn't see the first series, and it's quite obvious that seeing it would have been beneficial, if not vital in understanding just what is happening with the main male character.
I'm going to have to keep watching it now though, especially as I really like the black comedy served up by the main female character.
You really should watch the first series, it's excellent. Of course, now you know who the bad guy is....

I Was Monty's Double
I don't often like many black and white films but this one's really good. At the height of World War 2 an actor Clifton James was seconded to impersonate General Montgomery. The 'Monty double' Clifton James is sent to North Africa to divert the Germans attentions away from the real Monty. This led the Germans to hold back 60,000 troops and a Panzer tank division from the North coast of France just before D-Day in case the Allied invasion came from the South.
Interestingly, the actor Clifton James who played Monty's double in real life is also the actor who plays himself in the film. It's brilliant! One of the best films that I've ever seen.

Cracking film, I've got it on my PVR, must watch it again soon. I'm a bit of a fan of old black and white war films.
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
Been upgrading my Ghibli dvds to Bluray, watched Howl's Moving Castle, the ending still makes no bloody sense but makes me laugh As always a beautiful film.

Just watched a superb French film called Micmacs, I found out about it quite by chance, I'll have to see if I can find more like this.
I have to admit to not loving MIcmacs when I saw it, but I will try to watch it again.
I don't know if you've seen it, but I can really recommend Delicatessen by the same director, one of my all time favourites.
Great, thanks for the recommendation BBB, I haven't seen Delicatessen so I've put it straight on my Lovefilm list. Shame you didn't think too much of Micmacs though.
I liked it, but didn't love it like Delicatessen.
I'm glad you mentioned it though, I'm going to look out for a copy, and it's also reminded me to get Delicatessen on blu ray.
Still watching The Bridge II on BBC4, and really enjoying it. I'm presuming that the humour with Saga's Asperger's is intentional, as I've found myself laughing increasingly more often.
An hour late I know but was watching Speed with Guy Martin, the man is an absolute legend! And an absolute maniac both at the same time.
anyone who hasn't seen it get onto 4od and catch up on all 4 episodes. The man comes out with some excellent one liners (think he's had one too many knocks to the head)
Been watching Breaking Bad and am currently near the end of season two. Thought I would give it a watch after everyone raving about it and I have to say so far it is excellent. Highly recommended if you havn't seen it yet.
Oh and JohnE76 I have to agree with you on Speed, superb series and Guy is deffinitely an excentric. Completely nuts but in a good way.

You can't exchange a six inch band for all the poisoned streams in Cumberland.
I'm currently watching Julian Bream at the BBC on BBC4.
Now that's how to play guitar. Amazing.
