I thought that the first series of this medieval sweaty and sweary fest was medium schoiyte. Not brainy and talky enough for the brainy talky fans. Not fighty slashy dragony enough for the fighty slashy dragon fans.
I confess that I slowly became hooked on the second series, which ended quietly last night, after the big set piece in the penultimate episode (best medieval battle on telly ever? one of the best on film?). That expensive episode explains why the two or three before were very talky and a tad dull. Last night was mostly (good) talky, but there were two good nasty fights, one involving the abithotterthansheisinthebooks (apparently) ladyknight, who, as expected, turns out to be well nails, and one involving that bloke off Channel 4 News, or someone.
Heads roll, arms roll, chop-socky femme-fu, two breasts, many beasts, one dwarf. Joe Bob says: check it out.
What do you appreciators of unwashed grunting and merry minded dwarvery think?
I think he's referring to some stodgy sword-and-sorcery soap opera. Kind of like Babylon 5 but with fewer spacecraft and no Claudia Christian. But I am guessing from (a) not having Sky and (b) from trying and failing to read the books.
Fade away, and aviate...
It's one of the Rupester's Skynonsenses. Sword and (not much) Sorcery aimed at grown ups. Lots of boobies, bad haircare, a wisecracking shorterse a la Morley, and a certain amount of ultraviolence, plus decent production values, a mostly talented mostly Brit cast, and lots of swearing. The books (lots of them, all ninety thousand pages long, written by some bloke with a comedy beard) look well rubbish, but the TV version is OK ish. It's not as bad as the uber pretentious and up its own bum Battlestar Galactica, but, then, nothing is.
