OK, well, some of those clips were NSFW. Lovely, but NSFW.  ;)

Well, you know, Jeff--
If the BBC says it's ok,
it MUST be 'proper'--
isn't it? It's the BEEB
after all, right??!!

 ::) ::) :laugh: :laugh:


Though I guess BBC2
is just a teeny bit less
staid--it just isn't
your father's BBC
anymore....

It's amazing--the series premiered in the UK in November-December 2015, and now it is being released by BBCAmerica, week by week, in the States--tonight, Thursday, February 11, 2016, 10PM, it's Episode 4 out of a total of 5 episodes--and I'm watching it (devouring it?) via Amazon ($13.00 and change for all 5 episodes)--and I don't even have a television--I haven't had one for 20 years! For me it really is like living in the future--

 :) ;)

Somehow I don't think my employer would buy that argument.  :laugh:

Director Jakob Verbruggen and Charlotte Rampling (Frances)  

OMG, Charlotte Rampling looks like somebody's grannie. I think I'd rather remember her from the days when I couldn't decide who was the most beautiful woman in the world, her or Jacqueline Bisset.

Remember she was 'Mean Girl' Meredith to plain Lynn Redgrave's Georgie Girl? When she was in Zardoz?? ( I LOVED Zardoz!)






Well, she is a perfect Gorgon now in London Spy--very scary!
