Been there, done that.

BTW, I don't normally watch the show. Is it always that bad?

Pass! Never attempted to watch it. Same as that other show with Amstell and the fooking tremendously irritating Phil Jupitus. Not my cup of tea. Shooting Stars and HIGNFY are about as much as I can handle the panel show stakes.

Good cast and all set around the building of the first railway across America in the 1860s. A bit like Deadwood but with less swearing i think



Errrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmm no it doesn't.

However there is a siilar series starting on Sunday night on TCM, it just happens to be called Hell on Wheels

Sounds interesting. I love the episode of 'Mark Williams On The Rails' about that subject.

Just finished Community. Outstanding final episode that I thought and perfectly pitched to close it off. Not sure what's gone on behind the scenes to warrant Harman's ousting but I'd rather it just finish now after that. Can't be topped.

True. I worry about it continuing without Harman's guiding vision. I'd hate to see it become a generic US sitcom, or morph into something like Scrubs.

Should'nt really post this on here, as it's not a film. But as we appreciate fine acting and writing, has anybody been watching The Bridge on BBC 3. Excellent series all around, and comfortably sits neatly with previous Danish productions, The Killing and Borgen.

Scrubs is a great comparison/warning sign. I'm sure the network will want something less imaginative and plonk a laugh track on it, like Friends but for nerds. Still means he can go and do something else.

Yes, it was excellent. Intelligently written and beautifully filmed.

On a side note, I Enjoyed Hell on Wheels immensely.
