Just watched the trailer for this mini-series and looks interesting. A little comedy-action type series. Mark you calendars for 11-24-21, Thanksgiving eve.
In this episode Mary Ogden is played by Freema Agyeman even though she’s only on screen for a few seconds at a time, she stands out. If you’re a fan of New Amsterdam you will recognize her as Dr. Helen Sharpe. She has come a long way from playing bit parts at the age of 26 to a lead actress in a very good medical drama now at the age of 42.
In this last episode of the series, who pops up? None other than Bill Nighy and a very young Bill too. It ended on a good note and hated for it to end. Back in 2019 there was talk of a re-boot of Bergerac with a new lead actor portraying Bergerac. I guess that didn’t happen or covid played a part in it not going forward in 2020.
In this episode you’ll see Eamonn Walker as Conrad. Even though the part is small, I still recognized him. Thirty years later he has a major part in Chicago Fire, Eamonn Walker plays Chief Wallace Boden and in his 9th season too. I think he has found success across the pond.
If you’re a fan of Yellowstone and Cole Hauser (he plays Rip Wheeler), then check him out in this movie. Who knew right?
If you’re a fan of “Call the Midwife” you might recognize Pepe in this episode of Bergerac. A very young Stephen McGann.
Well, Sir Michael John Gambon is in this episode from 1987 and an interesting episode about the early days of computers. Don’t ask me how I saw this episode since there aren’t any links for this episode……..
I’m enjoying this, too. It’s fun to see John Nettles and Annette Badland in earlier roles. Not to mention the Guest Stars, who are actors of some renown now.
Annette left the show I think in season 4 and of course no reason was given. Annette did pop up as a guest star on the new British drama Whitstable Pearl. If you’ve not watched, give it a go.
Not bad, maybe it will get better.
As I’ve said before, you never know who will pop up on this drama! Joanne Whalley is 22 in this episode and WOW! When I saw her eyes I knew it had to be her and sure enough I was right!
I like watching these old British dramas because you never know who is going to appear in any given episode! A very, very young Phil Davis is in the episode! Very thin and rather handsome at age 30 I might add!
I’m really enjoying this series and just wish the episodes were longer than 50 minutes. I watched Martin Shaw in Inspector George Gently before watching him in The Professionals. Now I’m doing the same thing here, watched Midsomer Murders before watching Bergerac. I think both men look far better in their 70’s than in their 30’s! Their acting is spot on no matter what age they were/are!
I’m 31 minutes into the 1st episode of season 3 and I’ve had enough! Not sure if I want to continue on or not! Murphy was getting on my nerves in season 2. I’ll head back over to Midsomer Murders and settle in with a nice hot cuppa tea and relish the calmness of Tom & Ben……
“In September 2020, Soderbergh confirmed that a new season of The Knick is in development led by Barry Jenkins and André Holland, who would return as his character Dr. Algernon C. Edwards, and that original creators Jack Amiel and Michael Begler have written a pilot episode” - via The Knick’s Wikipedia page
I hope it comes to fruition because it is a good drama and not many medical dramas have been made during this time period. It is interesting to see how medical procedures were done and how some procedures were developed. I had no idea that cocaine was once used in liquid form.
Once again I thought I recognized someone and sure enough I do. MyAnna Buring is in this episode and has a bit part. You may know her from the drama Ripper Street, The Witcher and Downton Abbey.
I really don’t like to watch anything with subtitles but I just might have to give this drama a try. It sounds interesting.
WOW! Another movie with one of my favorite actors, Tom Hardy! I seemed to not know about this movie and it too is going on my watch list!
I have always been fascinated with James Norton. Not sure how I missed this movie and it’s going on my watch list ASAP.
It has been renewed for 2022 which I’m very glad about and can’t wait!
Holy Cow, a young(er) Sam Heughan plays Ian King in this episode. Nice surprise.
I was just about to post the same kind comment! A very young Sam indeed and my how he has grown up over the past 14 years!
I’m not sure if I want to watch this movie but it is about an interesting time in Hollywood and movies were on the cusp of becoming “talkies” which had some stars on edge. This movie has a stellar cast and even though it’s in black/white, I’ll put it at the bottom of my list to watch.
The 1st ep was surprisingly enjoyable enough, guess I’ll watch some more considering it’s only 3 eps long. James and Beecham are still gorgeous but getting to look a little too old to be playing teens.
I shall always remember James in Downton Abby and I wasn’t that impressed with her but she has improved her acting skills. And yes, she is getting to old to be playing the teen/young 20 something.
I love a good shoot em up film with great cast!!
I had just typed the title in the search box when I saw your posting. I had watched the trailer and was checking to see if it had been uploaded here on pw. I shall be watching this later in the day. I, too, see a sequel on the horizon! No more damsels in distress movies cause we women can take care of ourselves…..😉😁
If you’re a fan of Foyles War, you know that Honeysuckle Weeks is a main character. Well in this episode I thought that the character Hannah Moore looked like Honeysuckle but the actress was a bit younger. Low and behold it’s Honeysuckles younger sister Perdita Weeks. As I’ve said before, you never know who is going to pop up on this drama.
You never know who is going to pop up in Midsomer Murders! In this episode it’s Honor Blackman better known to some as Pussy Galore in the Bond movie Goldfinger.
Daniel Bolt is played by Neil Dudgeon in this episode. Eleven years later he is John Barnaby, the new DCI and a relative of John Barnaby (who has retired).
For those of you who are Titus Welliver fans, he is in another drama titled “Nova Vita about a wealthy entrepreneur and he must face his corrupt business partner and a sinister organization in order to get his life back.” But no one has uploaded it to primewire and I don’t know if it’s been released yet. Something to look forward to while waiting for the “Bosch” spinoff.
I agree and I stopped watching after 20 minutes!
I predict A Quiet Place Part III since it ended the way it did. I agree with you Kid Kryptonite, we need to know where they came from! Are the alien life forms? Unlike The Silence, we know where those creatures came from. Maybe a part III will answer those questions and wrap it up and be the end of it. No need to drag it out for 2 more sequels!
I was hesitant to watch Lupin because I’m not fond of movies/tv shows with subtitles. I took the plunge and I really like this little drama. I shall continue on and do some binge watching this weekend. I know I won’t make it into season 2 though.
IMDb says there are 3 episodes in 2021, Darkness Rising and The Devil’s Kiss,and Melancholy Countess. This is what I found, “Production on Season Two of Vienna Blood will begin in August 2020, shooting on location in Vienna in English, and once again starring Matthew Beard as Max Liebermann, and Juergen Maurer as Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt. A premiere date for season two of the Vienna Blood series was not revealed.” A deep……I can’t wait……sigh goes here!
I must have a good eye for spotting actors when they’re young! I kept thinking that “Bill” looked very familiar and the actor is 25 years old. It is none other than John Simm! I’ve only seen him in dramas when he was in his early 40’s to his present age. I live in the US and haven’t had the opportunity to watch British shows until I discovered primewire a few years ago. Therefore, I’m watching a lot of crime drama’s from the mid 1990’s and I’ve enjoyed many of them!
i forgot how these shows draw the viewer in. intriguing
And you never realize that some future movies stars would start out their career in acting by being on Unsolved Mysteries. Who is the person? None other than Matthew McConaughey. I don’t remember which season or episode though.
Me too! I was so addicted to my SOA! But sadly this show has already been cancelled I found out last night. I was glad to find something of quality to watch but then they go and cancel it. Shaking my head~
As the last episode ended I was thinking how well everyone worked together and there was chemistry among the actors. Sometimes Katey’s character got on my nerves but overall, it was a great show. I was looking forward to another season! I hate it that it was given only one season and sometimes one season isn’t enough to see how it will do in the ratings. I’m very disappointed in ABC for canceling Rebel!I just read an article and fans of the show started calling out ABC for canceling Rebel and sometimes the fan base has managed to change a networks mind and lets hope this will happen again.
I will watch just about anything with Bean and Graham in it! Wonder if they’ve worked together prior to this drama? About to watch it and know it will be good! Bean’s character in Snowpiercer is such a bad person and he pulls it off. But I prefer him playing the good guy but playing a bad guy is more fun I guess.
Okay, I had to chuckle when the car went rolling down the hill and it was very obvious that there were 2 dummies in the car!
Really well done historical film about the history and tragedy of Malta in the early 20th Century. Strange role for Harvey Keitel, did not fit him at all.
As you know, I’ve always been fascinated about wars in the early part of the 20th century. I’m glad that we have a site as primewire because I wouldn’t be able to watch war movies from other countries. These movies you don’t see on television. It’s always interesting to see another countries perspective on wars that took place in Europe.
Sadly this was cancelled way too soon :(
I, too, agree!
Man, Doyle (Martin Shaw) sure does give his Ford Escort a work out! Had no idea the Escort had such maneuvers! He and Bodie are crazy drivers to say the least!
This series starts tonight and since it’s a United Kingdom series. That means we might be able to watch in the late afternoon or early evening today.
I knew WWI was fought in the trenches but didn’t realize that some of WWII was also fought in trenches. I guess there was proof from WWI that they do work to a certain point. I’ve just started the movie and I’m not keen on subtitles but might give this one a go.
It amazes me how nimble Martin Shaw is in this series and it looks like he does his own stunts too! And that hair! What an attractive mop of curly hair he has!
Fashion and Disney vilains lovers, prepare to be WOWED!!Cool references to the ‘’101 dalmatians’’ movie. The music, filming and story telling reminded me of the ‘’Suckerpunch’’ movie. I got surprisingly impressed by the pop modern side of the production and the roles of Cruella’s friends. Also, cool reference end.5/5 for me!!
Yes, it’s Mark Strong and he’s a fine British actor. Rather surprised to see him in this movie with not a lot of screen time. If you’ve not familiar with Mark Strong, you should check him out! He usually plays cops or secret agents and a doctor. I don’t think I could ever confuse him with Stanley Tucci, Mark Strong is 6’2” and Tucci is 5’8”, I guess it’s the bald head that made you think of Tucci.
I hope you didn’t close the link when the credits started! There is still another little scene beyond the credits.
Any news on season 6?
On 18 January the BBC not only announced that the sixth season of the show had returned to production, but also that it would be the very last. Creator Steven Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang. And, there is this…..Peaky Blinders season six is likely to premiere by late 2021 or early next year as the production for the latest season has been wrapped up. According to Director Anthony Byrne, the editing part of season six will take a couple of months more.
Emma Stone hit it out of the ball park!! I also enjoyed the soundtrack! I was in grade school in the 1960’s I listened to a lot of the music that was played in this movie.
I didn’t notice on May 14th that there were back to back episodes! I watched it tonight and I told myself there better not be a nerve racking cliffhanger or I was going to have a major hissy fit! So, so many dramas this spring have had some gut wrenching cliffhangers and I’m not up for anymore of them! Thankfully, this episode ended………….
Audio doesn’t sound right so far.
I used streamplay #15 and the sound was okay but not on streamtape or doodwatch.
I agree, it needs to be someone who ‘looks’ like they can both charm you and kick ya butt. This guy is in deed charming, but he also looks like the ‘go whimper in the corner’ type LOL
I so, so agree about “go whimper in the corner” type! Roger Moore always seemed to think he was hot s____t and he wasn’t! He just looked soft and so does Norton!
That was pretty awful for a Guy Ritchie film.Juvenile script, wooden acting (My God can Andy Garcia take any more terrible roles?) Statham delivered as usual but as it has been pointed out, the poor guy has been type cast and now is relegated to the awful fate of being a multi-millionaire action star, there are worst things in life I guess. What is really bad is I bet the 2004 French film this is based on is a better watch.
He isn’t bad in the tv drama “Rebel” along side Katey Sagal. At times both get on my nerves in this drama and the only really sane actor on the drama is John Corbett from Northern Exposure. But still worth watching and Mary McDonnell is on there and at first you don’t recognize her, she appeared to be without any make-up on.

One of, if not the best boomer scenes in this episode. I can't to see what happens now.
I agree, a show that made you think and challenge reality today. Just wondering what the U...
This show made my head ache but it was ready damaged before by the twisted Predestination ...
Still doing the covid crap when we know you were lovey dovey back stage... Stop the BS.
She has aged but still lovely. You can see her here now.

They should have at least done a season 2 instead of leaving it as a cliffhanger just like...
Holy smokes !!! Damnation Alley !! I used to watch that in Montreal in theatres everyday ...
Cool, I didn't know that
I have, snazzy, and it was a fantastic film.
