The best of Netflix and Stan.

She reminded me a bit of Saga (in a couple of scenes).

And, I was imagining Kim Bodnia as the reporter.

Yeah i can see that. Both female leads are pretty tortured, captured exceptionally well by the actors.

Noomi Rapace says that when filming finished for the the trilogy, she convulsively vomited for ages, so dark a place did she go to to portray Lisbeth.

I've just seen that Borgen has been added to Netflix. If you've not seen this, seriously, watch it. It is excellent.

Political drama set in Denmark

Do. It;'s quality in and of itself but the insight into the Danish political system is fascinating.

'Des' on Stan is seriously worth watching. David Tennant makes the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Exceptional performance.

Oh, only three?

Okay.

Funny thing - I'm currently watching the series Battlestar Gallactica, on Stan.

I think I'm the only person who never watched it when it aired live.

Believe it or not, i just started watching Battlestar Galactica too. I've just finished the pilot movies. I missed it when it went round. Missed the first few episodes then could never really get into it after that. I'm enjoying it.

Wow, that's weird - both of us watching it 😯

I watched the pilots, and now I'm on episode 10 of the first series.

I'm also watching Longmire, which stars the actress who plays Starbuck in BG.

Battlestar is interesting. Very annoying that they say Frack instead of Fuck though.

I barely remember the original BG from my childhood but i remember loving it, especially the character of Apollo. Interestingly, i'm sure that was him on the prison ship episode ( the original Apollo actor) as the lead prisoner.

Can't be arsed chasing it up but nice if it's true.

The Cylons scared the hell out of me s a kid. And they're pretty formidable in this one too.

I can't find anything worth watching on Netflix.
I watched the 2 seasons of Karate Kid: it was better than I thought it was gonna be... I was pretty drunk but...

I watched Jim Carey playing Andy Kauffman and.that was pretty good.

I don't remember it as a kid.

There's an older series, obviously (?)
