Crop And Save
This is Julian Baptiste from "Missing" series, how can it be bad?
I loved both series "Missing". Excellently written plot with somone dissapearing at its core. But there is so much more to it always, not to mention new beautiful european filming locations. I hope these series will hold up to the promissing new start.
Tin Star (2017)
brilliantly written and acted
Well produced drama with lots of violence and where good mixes with bad, where revenge mixes with family and undercover operations. intricate plot, storytelling and acting. not for everyone but it sure heck is entertaining and captivating enough to keep on watching.
all ingredients to cook up a great thriller series but the details...
The destails are not quite worked out. obviously addictive intense psychological series with creative script and developed characters. Alba fits perfectly in there. I bet james patterson wrote his alex series with someone like that in mind or is it the other way around? i watched it a while ago and stopped in few episodes and now there was a chance for me to find out why did i do that. A new season premiere just started so it must be popular and good although sometimes popular does not guarantee quality. So I started my own tiny investigation of my own. Why? I gave it another chance from the beginning to find out what bothered me. First of all, we tend to want to watch characters that we like. I had an issue with that within first twenty minutes since driven detective becomes an executioner just like the killer himself instead of following the rules. But thats just the thing about him this ambivalence. So i looked passed it and continued. Then the part came up that supposed to hook the viewer. By this time we are supposed to believe the detective is very smart yet he does not bring a recording device and puts in his coat after provocation plan to elicit a reaction so alice can make a mistake. then again there would have to be a totally different plot and script would have to be adjusted. So its up to the smart audience to realize if there is enough of a hook factor or if there isn't something else better to watch.
Lover in the Attic (2018)
well done lifetime movie
Great story based on true events was the attraction and not only that but talented intense Molly Burnett from Queen of the south. very well done lifetime movie. gotta watch it to believe it.
La trêve (2016)
not bad not the greatest
It is interesting enough to suck you in, main character will have you join him on an investigation while his personal life is difficult to say the least especially his daughter, together with all the people in the village with their agenda and guilt that transposes into a different bad dream at the beginning if each episode.
Queen of the South (2016)
keeps you entertained
This is one of the shows that i actually watch (minus the gruesome torture scenes), it is that interesting. i mean i dont do other activities like using the time wisely at home, like clean cook and crap....so in a sense it is a time killer and killing is a theme of the show and even of every episode. i usually dont watch rogue main characters based tv but here you cant help but keep watching and root for Theresa. at least she's trying to do crime in a better way..reminds me of perestroika, reforming the rotten system or is it just a plain girls fight for power, well i sure will keep watching. you never know with this show it might surprise you.
Sé quién eres (2017)
the plot is better then the lead actor
It is an interesting intricate soap operaish plot to suck you in, but the lead character is so boring and unattractive that to believe any young hot thing would be all over the guy is a pure fantasy and makes this drama a sci fi. Actually none of the characters are not much better to care for, although their performance is fine. the show has typical scenes as in every series these days where couples rip their clothes off each other, only on tv this happens just like the amnesia crazy plot. when you got nothing better to watch it is almost tolerable. i guess the message is the dilema one can face to have to do bad things to save your family that is being mistaken for a false and ultimate sense of security, trust and values.
the series must be aimed at a lazy not too demanding viewer
It feels as a documentary made into re-enactment show such as I.D. channel does, i remember the ID covered at least one of the ones by James Patterson's series, so what kind of a role did he play in it other then marketing? Its based on true story that was already covered in the media. Badly acted average watch, and thats a very generous review. ID channel at least covers more details, interviews the envolved law enforcement and is more accurate.
The Mercy (2018)
so boring and miserable its a great sleeping pill
A story of a desperate weak man, nothing to make a movie about, i can just look around and see many of those everywhere. It didnt bring about much drama to see how challenging it must have been. Probably committed a suicide, he failed himself, investors and his family. Why coming back? An amateur in every sense a dreamer, a failure. His faithful supporting wife had no clue shes with a crazy man.
At least he got one thing right, shes better off without him.
A good casting and scenery, Collin has this expression of a weak man already.
cant find a single flaw with this one, its worth a billion.
There are not many shows that keep surprising you like this one. the genius script allows for fluid characters that keep changing strategies in such way the enemies become friends and the honorable ones become the deceitful ones. likable characters become unlikable and visa versa. cant wait for season five.
Mildred Pierce (2011)
irritating brat of a daughter but watchable thanks to Kate W
Nice adaptation, but the script is based on an aweful one-sided writing, it starts off as promising drama when the lead character sends off her husband to his lover and is left to fend for herself and works hard to earn a living, then the writting takes a wrong turn after personal loss and business success instead of being happy she turns into an opposite of a kept woman and keeps a man instead and argues with her spoiled daughter and brat and tolerates this crap, mind you this is a third episode, hopefully she comes to her senses. it is watchable and enjoyable thanks to kate winslet performance but irritating at the same time. Ultimately if its supposed to be study of mother daughter relationship that tolerates a lot because of guilt and loss then ok, i get and would have saved five hrs having known...
Príbeh kmotra (2013)
the second most visited Czech film of 2013
A-top-notch drama with top performances is inspired by the story of Frantisek Mrazek. It is also a story of two counterparts, a mafia-style organized crime fraudster businessman with plenty of blackmail materials of corrupt politicians and an honest brave policeman standing up for the justice in an unjust world. It is based on true characters and events in czechoslovakia at the time. A must watch also for anyone that has voted for the prime minister and current party in demise. Unfortunately there is still a lot of work to be done in curruption in Czech especially with investigation of EU subsidies fraud and prime minister's controversial past the state security police and similarly his blackmail materials and many other similarities with mafia style gangster.
Cirkus Bukowsky (2013)
exciting storry line with top notch main character's performance
Great choice for the actor of main character plus with his own story telling connects with the viewer on a more personal level and together with the exciting script of other characters and wierd circus setting makes it a fun-to-watch crime show. only in the first episodes many things happen to hook the viewer: the psychology teacher looses a job, a wife, a lover and a nose but inherits a third of a circus that gives him a place to stay and time to figure all things out if he survives long enough...luckily he will also gain a partner to solve the crime that has similarly other convenient reasons and motivation such as clearing his name as apolice officer but with a guy that has nothing to loose he can guide and protect the not so naive teacher....
boring nordic noir imitation stuck in th 70s
If it wasnt for the cell phones in the series, the interiors and exteriors are stuck in the 70s communist ugly depressing regime. no changes since then. with the dead animal in the first episode and missing girl and miserable people all around with cold weather and with violent sex scenes it immediately proved to be a nordic noir imitation. the missing girl's mother did an ok job but the father was a bad choice. dusek is not a drama actor more of a comedy actor if actor at all. the raw unnecessary scenes with the prostutute were totally irrelevant to the story just to fit the genre. he himself admits to it in the interviews that he aint no actor. the whole background was a completely irrelevant to the story, just skip to the last eighth episode too many and youll see it was a story about kids being bad in a desperate environment with no proper guidance and hope for the future. czechs have so many better shows to offer, this one would be a failure. a similar show circus bukowsky is already ten times better story script then this one with many talented actor only one comedic actor bohumil klepl is again bad choice but still did much better job. there is so much that happens in the first episode you will be drawn into it especially when main character recounts his feelings to the viewer in first person making it autobiographical as well. also, as stories of many other characters in the circus setting makes it more interesting then a village called Pustina.
boring, annoying petit blonde as pretentious tough boss
Not even alan cumming can save this boring recital of tiring scripts.
it fails on all levels, not interesting, not remotely emotional and comedy is more painful then funny, not much creativity and originality either... just to mention the few bugs...however it doesn't fail on the level of annoyance when explaining the viewers every single detail they are thinking as on CSI type shows.
well done Piers, you nailed it as always
Piers is a real no nonsense person that gets the job done right. He gets the topic, the point, the purpose of each of the women story and reveals it in concise, bottom of the line manner. He is polite but firm and highlights the atrocity and sometimes the injustice. Very recommended if you care about a motive behind a real crime of those chosen women in the interviews and their story.
watchable but a slight dissapointment lingers at the end
Dissapointing also because the poor father got no sorry from the doctor...ok i guess that was the point of the story? otherwise agreed with the criticism of other reviews. very unrealistic script yet delivered very professionally so the actors saved the show. i thought it was watchable enough for those who like to examine people emotions. the father skillfully extracted the truth thanks to his misplaced anger and got his little revenge and the doctor got his punishment as his daughter is getting further away from him physically and emotionally. the three-part-drama examined also the issue of doctors humility and honesty is as important as their skills as surgeons too, no mercy lie or ego has a room in this one of the most difficult and admired professions.
The Good Fight (2017)
If you can't change the world, pls change this garbage show
Diving deeply low, and lowering the standards of The Good Wife show of which the soundtrack is far superior, this liberal left wing propaganda is the biggest embarrassment on tv to this day. The clueless naive writers and actors with
artificial and superficial lines like "if I can't change the world I want to change my little piece in it..." are delivering hardly even good entertainment. Seriously? Such a deep wisdom you can learn there, they should get that patented...this newly found discovery from the bubble called hollywood in a company of crazies: self indulgent overrated overvalued know-it-alls.
And the prize for the biggest embarrassment goes to you, a little shameful oscar in your corner of the office for "showing FLOTUS nude photo". Your parents must be so proud.
Le mystère du lac (2015)
This series is pretty addictive since there are plenty of suspects with a secret till the very last minute it will still surprise you. every piece of a puzzle fits nicely together. it is not one of the greatest because the main actress "cop" was a bit dull and misfit but not too much to discourage from watching. it will make you watch till the end and that is a well done show for me.
characters & story that you'll binge
Fantastic series with very skilled acting and written stories with characters that are intertwined together in each episode which makes for great writting since it hooks more viewers. stories quickly enfold even in 2-part episode plots.
Fatal Vision (1984)
a true story movie, a true delight to watch
a movie so good that 3-hrs will pass unnoticeably thanks to the shocking and mind blowing content and great acting delivery. upon reading about the facts when not familiar about any details, the only defense angle played more recently was the hippie revenge for a lack of drug supply from a doctor. the illogical part is why would they not kill him too ...the motive is not confirmed but more plausible based on display of character hence he's in prison till today. the movie portrays the evidence and father-in-law persistence and determination despite his pain in having have to discover the true horrific details needed for prosecution. a very satisfactory 3-hr spent. We'll see what the ID TV brings new to the case on dec 10, i hope they add more common sense and character analysis.
Murdoch Mysteries (2008)
great TV entertainment, excellent cast
this is one of those moments when the well-chosen cast with excellent writing ideas and authentic production serve us a great entertainment, refreshing without any annoying cell phone calls ringing or texts during the show. intriguing plots mixed in with the the main characters stories give a good balance to it and the success of the show proves it. another almost as good of a show is doctor blake mysteries.
The Hundred Code (2015)
very unrealistic, flat one dimensional characters and poor acting performances
as previous reviews with low rating already stated, 100% agree with them. the plot is over the top plain weird, bridge was a bit like that but they pulled it of thanks to the interesting main characters and great acting. but this was not accomplished in this show. four stars for the place where it was produced and the nice try.
mediocre show but fine acting and interesting enough to watch
it is a well done intriguing plot that will keep you entertained however i must admit it is predictable right at the beginning of first five episodes you know what will happen to the somewhat unattractive but determined and naive journalist. we all know what kind of level of dirty money we are dealing with here. just like in damages show where it was a way over the top on murder count but it kept you going for its chaotic time line story telling. here in bedrag it is more realistic and diversified with different characters and their personal drama so it will keep your attention. is it on the level of thrillers like killing, bridge, frikjent, trapped, spring tide? No. but is it on the level of modus, mammon, borgen? yes but way better.
a must see, a total binge show
one of the shows that is made to make you not stop watching, knows exactly at what moment to stop the episode to make you need to watch what happens next. there are very well produced investigation details and process done by the main characters, realistic and a little bit careless as to their own safety especially since they know they are or could be in danger hence the bad guys are one step ahead. the main evidence is the hands of a knife thrower and is traveling from south America to Sweden for at least two episodes. But then again it adds to the suspense. the plot is disturbing enough, no surprise from the vikings but also touching up on social issues in present Sweden. great mystery psychological suspense thriller where motive is a well kept secret only for the patient audience.
