Autumn Season TV – Selfie

November 7, 2014


I LOVE this show. I hate the name. But I LOVE this show. It might be down to Karen Gillan and John Cho. But it’s inherently watchable. My friend likens it to New Girl. I suppose in the fact that it’s cute and kooky in places, I’d agree. BUT New Girl has a more ensemble cast. Selfie rides on the loveliness of Karen and John. And the fact there is usually at least one moment in each episode which makes me want to scream ‘MAKE OUT!!’ or ‘NOW KISS!!’ at the TV. Soon…….


Autumn Season TV – Bad Judge

This pretty much sums the show up.

This pretty much sums the show up.

As much as I wanted to like this, because of Addison, I mean Kate Walsh, so far it’s just.. ok. It’s entertaining. But it’s not my favourite new comedy. Plenty of familiar faces, even Anne Heche who created it, who I fondly remember from Volcano and Ally McBeal. AND she apparently voiced Root Bear Guy’s wife, Cherry Cream Soda.


Autumn Season TV – Detectorists

Crook and Jones. Doing their... "thang".

Crook and Jones. Doing their… “thang”.

My dad mentioned this series, and I didn’t give it much thought, because describing it doesn’t do it justice. As it’s basically about 2 guys who go metal detecting in the countryside. It’s written, directed by and stars Mackenzie Crook. It also stars Toby Jones. Who I only just found out does the voice of Dobby in Harry Potter o___o;. But I knew Jones from Doctor Who, Captain America, Hunger Games, Finding Neverland(perfect as Smeeee) and The Mist, which I must rewatch sometimes. Mackenzie Crook I knew from POTC, Almost Human, lotsa stuff. He’s cool. He’s oddly charming in Detectorists.


What We Did On Our Holiday – Not the heart warmer reviews promised… – Review – (BEWARE SPOILERS)

The review quotes are LIES. FILTHY LIES!! Ok I may be overreacting. But I certainly did not fall in love with this movie...

The review quotes are LIES. FILTHY LIES!! Ok I may be overreacting. But I certainly did not fall in love with this movie…

Now I’ll admit, the main reason I went to see this movie was for David Tennant. I was never a fan of Outnumbered. Children in comedy usually makes me cringe. USUALLY.

Please watch the trailer, then watch the movie, and wait for your ideas to be ripped apart.

This movie was almost in 2 halves. For me, the first half was funny, charming, I didn’t even want to throttle the kids. Tennant was lovely, Pike was lovely, Miller was lovely, Connolly was lovely. The relationship between the kids, Lottie especially, and Gordy was lovely. I really liked how it was portrayed. The way she talked with her grandad. BUT shortly after that it lost me…(See below the cut for plot & spoilers & my thoughts…)


The 3-Mei sama/The 3 Young Men/Sanmeisama/The3名様 – (Ok… so I helped myself a bit…still want subs..)

March 1, 2010

All pics came from CDJapan

How the hell do I find out anything bout this thing if nothing useful comes up on google! Just the CDJapan/PlayAsia pages that have the DVD’s on… There seem to be enough of these DVD’s on CDJapan… but…. I find nothing about what its about… its not listed on Sato Ryuta’s Dramawiki or his Asian Media Wiki listing… so I’m dumbfounded… How is it nothing exists about this thing in English? Is it a sketch show? A mini series? What?!

I know there was an anime version made last year, with the proper cast, but… theres not much about that either….. And I *think* it might have been based on a manga… or a manga was made after… I’m really not sure…

Ok, theres an officially site for it, but still doesn’t really help much…. It seems to have been going since at least 2005, and new stuff is still being released….

EDIT: Ok, so it seems the DVD’s are listed under a few names, sanmeisama has gotten me new results, and even a video, which I’m looking at now. Linky here, tis a the 1st episode far as I can guess from the ep 1 translation on the official site lol. EDIT: Ok, so Veoh have like 4 episodes, but if I search The3名様 in google, I get up alot of different stuff(like the Japanese wiki article on it), got the ‘The3名様’ from the Veoh vids. Thats 3 different names now… Theres some on youtube, will add some here, shame no subs though…

EDIT: YAY! Found 1 with subs so far, I hope this YT user has more with subs, will check, and then check back lol.

EDIT: And finally, here, theres like a little synopsis & list of all the eps & where they’re available on the web far as I can tell… So it is like a mini sketch show thing, reminds me of Kevin Smith stuff, in that, random/stoner/slice of life kinda thing lol.

Only thing I don’t understand now is why its not listed in Sato Ryuta’s Filmography on any sites I’ve seen…

This be the title card for the show
This be the title card for the show

I downloaded this a few weeks ago because someone said it was a funny trap series. And I must say I agree. It was very enjoyable, cute and funny. I’ll definately be following it, its my first choice of the winter season aswell. I’m still watching Clannad After Story of course, watched episode 13 a few days ago…..:sniff:…Clannad makes me so emotional…..dammit… Anyhow, onto the episode. Screenshot heavy, be aware.
