Chris Lilly hit lightning in a bottle with Summer Heights High and everything else he has made is total crap
Why he didnt make like extra characters for his other series and other storylines ill never know. Eg. Ja'mie, do a teacher or a cleaner idk.. seeing the same character in the one show made them monotonous and annoying af.Chris Lilly hit lightning in a bottle with Summer Heights High and everything else he has made is total crap
nah thats not boring at all.2 month later quote.
A mate and I always use this line when we catch up eithers house.
Tea or coffee mate?
Still funny all these years later.
Cool but boring story, I met Chris Lilly through my old job at his production studio office in Balaclava a few days after everyone thought he was going to win a Logie or something for SHH but I think ended up with nothing, Super down to earth bloke no bells or whistles made me like him even more.
liked the background of depressed seventies but that and the myscogeny angle seemed to give the hierarchy an out. They were simply incompetent and awfulThe Ripper on Netflix, about the investigation and capture of the Yorkshire Ripper, only a short series but very interesting
Quoting you twice in as many days lol.The X-Files
Never saw it first run (was only 12) and decided to give it a real go and watch the first series all the way through
The better half and I just watched it and although there are more detailed doco's on the subject this was quite good.The Ripper on Netflix, about the investigation and capture of the Yorkshire Ripper, only a short series but very interesting
Loved that show. Wasn't expecting much tbh not a huge tim Minchin fan. But turned out to be a very good show. She was awesome in it.Upright on Binge. Suprised how enjoyable this is, Millie Alcock who plays Meg is going to be a superstar.
thats as far as i got, lost interest half way through season 8After ignoring it for best part of 10 years I finally got watching The Walking Dead! Onto 7th season and by JİNGO it's tight and brilliant as anything I've seen! And here I was telling mates how boring it would be watching zombies getting sloshed for 100+ episodes. How wrong I was. Up there with Breaking Bad, Ozark, Narcos maybe even better .
I just watched it too. You'd think with today's digitisation making it possible to cross reference all of times the police spoke to him that he wouldn't have gotten away with it for so long. And the Wearside Jack hoaxer that totally derailed the investigation was just bizarre. The police didn't solve that one until mid 2000s when he was arrested for something else and they had a DNA match on one of the letters.The better half and I just watched it and although there are more detailed doco's on the subject this was quite good.
Perhaps a bit over the top portraying the police as complete bumbling idiots given the lack of forensic tech they had back then, although it did highlight how far law enforcement have come when dealing with/using the media in similar investigations.
Also the strong feminist focus in the story I found a bit confusing/unnecessary; sure, most women were terrified of walking the streets at night and rightly frustrated, but in real life there were actually as many men on those protest marches in the streets at the time demanding the ripper be caught - accordingly I despise this recent trend of movie/TV show producers embellishing history just to support a narrative that appeases modern sensibilities.
As one the lead detectives on the case told a reporter in April 1978; "The ripper is NOT going to enquire if you're a feminist who has the right to walk the streets alone at night before he smashes your head in with a hammer..!!!"
