Another show that looks interesting is Animal Kingdom. I haven't seen it but I am recording the series on my dvr. The show is based on an Aussie movie (called Animal Kingdom). I saw the movie a while back and liked it so I'm hoping the show is close to as good as the movie.
I'm really liking the TNT show Animal Kingdom. I've seen 3 episodes and I think most of you would like it. It's based on an Aussie movie from 5 or 6 years ago. Episode 1 was basically a remake of the first part of the movie, then the show pivots away from the movie because the movie ending wouldn't work for a continuing TV show.
It's about a high school age boy whose mother dies and he has nowhere to go so he calls his grandmother to see if he can live with her. He hasn't seen his grandmother since he was a little kid because his mom had kept him away. Grandma is the head of a small crime family consisting of her and the boy's uncles. So the story is about this crime family and their new addition.
I don't usually quote myself but I felt it was necessary in this instance.
At first I thought you meant the John Jakes books. Is it still free on Amazon?Just finished North and South--not the U.S. Civil War thingie (book was fine reading, TV show was...okay), but a BBC adaptation of the book by Elizabeth Gaskell. Really admired it, so much so that I downloaded the book (free on Amazon) and have dived into that, as well.
I like the Jakes book, but this one isn't that one. I believe it's still free on Amazon--I'd be surprised if it isn't in the public domain, since it's from the late 1800s--author is Elizabeth Gaskell. In the vein of Austen, but meatier. I'm really enjoying it so far.At first I thought you meant the John Jakes books. Is it still free on Amazon?
So nice to "see" you!!!I like the Jakes book, but this one isn't that one. I believe it's still free on Amazon--I'd be surprised if it isn't in the public domain, since it's from the late 1800s--author is Elizabeth Gaskell. In the vein of Austen, but meatier. I'm really enjoying it so far.
Maybe you hit the button that turned off subtitles on your TV?I just finished binge watching Lillyhammer, very strange, violent, quirky and funny. Two annoying things about it though:
1. It got cancelled, so they had to wrap everything up hastily, and
2. Throughout the whole thing whenever someone spoke in Dutch (or Swedish or whatever) they had subtitles, which was fine, but the last few episodes they stopped them. What, since I had watched all the previous seasons, I should be fluent in their language? It was annoying not knowing what the characters were saying.
