Technically, you start with the movie, then go through the seasons.  I imagine you can skip the movie, though they do mention characters and events later in the series.  It got a bum rap, but it works fine if you think of it as a multiarc series of episodes and not a movie.

I've seen the movie...but I'm going to watch the series anyway.  I've heard the series was much better than the movie.

I keep debating upgrading my dvd box set of Farscape to the blu ray set.  That I'm even thinking about that kind of a double dip should show you how much I loved Farscape.  Firefly is the only show I've ever done that for.  I think DS9 would be the only other one.

While it wasn't particularly well-reviewed in 2012, I was quite gripped by the French-made Special Forces (saw on Netflix yesterday). You could maybe call it a remake of Saving Private Ryan (small French special forces group sent to rescue a kidnapped reporter in this case) set in Afghanistan. Critics found it too jingoistic, but I think it works at the least as an exciting military thriller with amazing photography and location shooting. Think more Black Hawk Down, rather than Zero Dark Thirty.

‘Special Forces’ Reveals French Side of War
http://xfinity.comcast.net/blogs/movies/2012/10/12/special-forces-reveals-french-side-of-war/
While it's not a documentary, the director's background is in that so it feels very much "you are there" and has lots of spectacular vistas.

While there is a fair amount of subtitles in the movie, much of it is in English (you'll recognize Diane Kruger from FX's The Bridge show, and Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds")  due to the kidnapped reporter speaking English.
================

Also caught Ironclad, after realizing James Purefoy (whom I enjoyed in Solomon Kane so much) starred in it. Bloody exciting, but I don't know if I recommend trying to watch it on a full stomach. It goes pretty faaaaaaaaaaar in the violence quotient, in keeping with its 13th century topic.  If watching character's hands and limbs and feet get lopped off, or watching a corpse get catapulted against a wall don't scare you off, then sign up for it. icon_smile

Purefoy's "slam the longsword through the hostage-taker's mouth" move made me giggle.  ninja

They want $50 per season?!  Fuck that noise.

The box set of the dvd's are on sale quite often on amazon.  Can you get that and use handbrake to rip the episodes to your laptop?

Edit: blu ray box set is 70 bucks.  There's also a new DVD set that's selling for 17 bucks a season too.

I watched Best Man Down and surprisingly enjoyed it.  I had low expectations, and with Tyler Labine and Justin Long I expected a dumb buddy comedy but it was more of a touching, heartfelt friendship thing.  With some Tyler Labine silliness at times.

Make sure you track down down the movie when you start nearing the end of the series.  If you don't you will regret it...

started watching season 4 of Clone Wars with my son yesterday.  started off ok with a long underwater battle but it then took a turn to the Lucas and brought in Jar Jar and the mandatory tie-in by having Akbar be a major character in the story.  the episodes after that were another Jar Jar and one where the droids do all sorts of non-droid like things in the service of making them interesting. 

thankfully, they seem to dig themselves out by having an anti clone general (clonist?) treating clones like disposable fodder.

Saturday night, my wife and I decided to check out the first episode of the French drama The Returned on Netflix. 4 hour later it was 1AM and we were both in a daze and dragged our asses to bed. Yesterday we watched all be the last episode. What a fantastic show about the dead returning to a small village in France. I'm pretty sure the new show, Resurrection, (ABC?) is based on The Returned. If you don't mind sub-titles, check this show out. It's a moody drama with each episode looking more like a movie than a TV series.

Am I the only one who caught the opening episode of the new Netflix series Dusk till Dawn. I never cared much for the original movie and the opening episode left me feeling about the same. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and watch a few more episodes, but it really needs to improve to keep my attention.

I didn't realize that was a Netflix original series.  I had watched a trailer for it a while back and was not in any way, shape or form impressed.  I may give the pilot a shot just to make sure I'm not being misinformed by a crappy trailer though.

Actually, Resurrection is not based on The Returned (supposedly legally).  There's another American show called The Returned coming to A&E that is.

This seems to be a common misconception (I thought the same thing at one point), since if you search for The Returned on IMDB, it lists Resurrection and says "(aka The Returned)" though the main page no longer says that.

Almost done with Season 1 of Farscape.  Man, what an awesome show...can't believe I missed both this and Firefly the first time around.

Random sidenote:  Part of the music used in Farscape is sampled in one of my favorite songs, Synthetic Forms by Frontline Assembly (the back and forth strings that start about the 2:40 mark).  It's distracting every time the song is played in the background during the show because it makes want to go listen to FLA.  smile

Farscape is one of the few series that make me wish selective memory wiping was a thing.  I'd love to watch this again from the start without knowing how it ends.

and RE that music, it reminds me more of Alien than Farscape, with some Vangelis Blade Runner-esque mixed in afterwards. ~4:30.  good stuff though.

You know what, I think you may be right.  This page lists all the samples FLA uses in their music, and there is some Alien score in there ("Synthetic Forms" from the Implode album).  I guess Farscape copied it as well, as it sounds exactly the same.  Tried to find the exact song on YouTube, but ran across what I think may be a rather huge spoiler, so I'm going to stop looking.  frown

Spoiler for Hiden:
One of the tracks was called "Aeryn's Funeral", but I don't have any more context than that

Here's the samples from that song.

Quote
?.?? grinding, footsteps, ocean sound
Contact

?.?? orchestral and female choir samples
The Prophecy

0.36-1.02, 1.07, 1.12-1.28, rapid beeping sounds, orchestral strike
Event Horizon

2.41 looped orcehstra
Mimic

2.59 Light orchestra hits
Jerry Goldsmith, “Alien” score

3.54, 7.10 “This place is a tomb”
Event Horizon

4.06 Sound effect, “Scanning for life readings…”
Event Horizon

4.48 wierd effected drum loop
Depeche Mode, “Dangerous”

I was trying to think of the movie sampled in that song after hearing Fishburne's voice.

I watched a couple episodes of American Horror Story on a whim and ended up finishing both seasons in a little over a week.  That doesn’t happen for me very often.  I don’t actually care for most “horror” in general but this was much more like a character driven drama with horrific elements than a straight up horror story.  Nothing was particularly scary or gruesome (Aside from the opening credits oddly enough).  It’s an anthology series so each season is a self-contained story; I would say the first season was more compelling but I enjoyed both.

AHS is great because I truly have no clue as to what they'll do next.  It's surprising to find a show that eschews pretty much every television standard.

Saw 20 Feet From Stardom appeared on Netflix over the weekend so caught that the other day. This film won best documentary this year at the Academy Awards. It's follows a few backup singers, their careers, and how they have an almost impossible time becoming know solo artist. Its definitely good. There is a lot of history here with the backup singers being on various songs that I had no clue about. But ultimately it was a bit of a depressing film. These ladies (and one guy) have some major talent. But it was clear that talent doesn't directly translate into being a star in the music industry - which is portrayed so viciously, and ultimately random with who gets to become a star. If anything I think this film would be a major turn off to anyone going in to that industry despite have a lot of up beat moments.

Today I had the day off and while my plan was to do stuff around the house at lunch I popped on this new Anime show Sword Art Online which appeared over the weekend too. 30 minute shows are perfect for lunch so thought I'd check it out. And then the rest of the day was gone as I binge watched a bunch of episodes. It's a totally geeky show but I was loving it - and if you've played MMOs with any regularity you would probably get a kick out of it too.

The setup is this. A new popular MMO was just released in limited supply: 10,000 copies. The game uses this new VR helmet technology where your thoughts control your movements in the game - in the real word your basically paralyzed while playing the game. After logging in the game it soon becomes evident the log out button has been removed from the menu. Since you're paralyzed you can't remove the helmet your self to exit the game. But you don't want to do that anyways since the creator of the game makes it clear that it will kill you. And if you die in the game you also die in the real world too. The only way to get out of the game is to clear the 100 different levels in the game world.

Now its a totally silly setup but the episodes are actually fun as they cover a lot of the MMO tropes such as, newbies, boss battles, player killers, guilds and guild politics, ninja looting, and even in-game marriage. Its actually done pretty well given the absurdity of the topics. There is an early 2-part episode that deals with a murder mystery where someone is killed in town, which shouldn't be possible since its a non-PvP area. Who killed them, and how did they do it (an exploit), and why? Although the ending of the mystery wasn't that good getting to that point was kinda a blast.

The show is targeted at the teen audience so there's a lot of stupid stuff in there but for the most part the show takes itself somewhat seriously. And people actually die in this thing - one rather viciously. But if played MMOs its worth checking out that first episode to see if your in or not.

*fixed the name of the show.

One thing I like about Log Horizon is it deals a lot with guild politics, and party group tactics.  It very much is from someone who has played MMOs.

I'm really enjoying this series. I especially liked the 2 part story that spanned episodes 5 and 6 -  very cool story with lots of mystery and intrigue. About the only thing that's bothered me about it, is  a bit too much fan service in terms of sexy shots/angles of some of the female characters features. That's to be expected for the target audience though and it isn't frequent enough to be too annoying. Another good anime series and I'm definitely going to watch it through to completion.   slywink thumbsup

The sexy shots actually get more frequent as the series goes along - so that does get more annoying. The first 14 episodes of this series is excellent though - what I'm calling the 1st half. I'm at episode 20 now and the second half of the season is a little less compelling for me to watch. They want to focus on the romances rather than just survival in the game world. Plus a new bad guy they introduce is waaay over the top with behaving villainous that it kinda ruins things when he's in a scene. Still I gotta find out what happens.

The reason why I love Sword Art Online (also Log Horizons) is because they convey how online relationships can be deep and meaningful (whether it's from a Guild, favorite party members etc)

The one benefit of being laid up sick in a hotel room yesterday was that I got to do a Farscape marathon.  Watched 13 episodes and wrapped up season 2.  I love this show, but when it goes off the rails, it REALLY goes off the rails.  One particular episode where John is, shall we say, "back home" was delightfully insane.  I about fell off the couch laughing when Crais showed up in heels.   icon_lol

So damn glad I gave this show another shot.   thumbsup

thanks for the SAO recommendation.  Almost done with the series and it definitely pays off.  I could do with less of the young women objectification, but it is certainly a very deep series once you get past that

Spoiler for Hiden:
Crais: FREEZE! You're under arrest! You have the right to the remains of a silent attorney! If you cannot afford one... tough noogies! You can make ONE phone call! I recommend Trixie: 976-Triple 5-LOVE. Do you understand these rights as I have explained them to you?! Well do ya, PUNK?
Crichton: No...
Crais: Well... then I can't arrest you!

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque or credit card?

They've added the first season of Young Justice.  I haven't watched it yet, but I've heard lots of good things about it.
