BBC Howards End

Attempting to retell the story in the shadow of the Merchant-Ivory masterpiece is a challenge to say the least.

Great cast,production, set location and costume. The longer running time allows the story to be slightly better fleshed out.

Look forward to the next three episodes.

Just finished The Sopranos, now on to this--inspired partly by the David Chase connection, and by my memory of how much my parents enjoyed this show when I was a kid:

Have been tempted to grab it, and it's dirt cheap right now....

some of these old shows, when you think back on them, seemed so corny....yet, when I watch old shows like Cannon, Mannix, Kojak, etc....they wear better than I would have thought....especially the first few seasons....same goes for Hawaii 5-0, but....it had quality control issues. It can also be amazingly bad , both actingwise, and storywise.

The documentary The Festival, covering the Newport Folk Festival from 1963-1966, from the Criterion Collection. The performances included are short/edited/fragmentary, but there is some great stuff to see (Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Fred McDowell, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, John Lee Hooker (bonus material), the Butterfield Blues Band, with and without Dylan, Odetta). There is also plenty of folk as one might expect (Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Peter Paul and Mary, etc.), acoustic and electric Dylan, gospel and country (Johnny Cash). A pretty fun viewing experience, overall, and an interesting cultural snapshot of popularity of folk music in the early 1960s.

Mr. Robot - I think I'm finally figuring it out. OTOH, my wife gave up.

Good for you.

I was having lunch with fellow boardster JohnJ who also seemed to have it figured out.

I'm with your wife. I gave up the ghost about 2/3rds through season two. It's maybe laziness on my part but I just couldn't be bothered investing the concentration needed to keep up, which really means I found it boring.
