Best episode so far this season. The show is slowly coming back into it's own, with a lot of help from Sideshow Bob.
The annual Treehouse of Horror has always been at the top of my list of favourite episodes, every season. But I don't know what they were going for this year. Poorly written and directed and even the musical score was patchy. Bring back The Simpsons!
Was not expecting it to be this good! Guy Richie has taken a worn out, historically inaccurate figure and made him exciting again. Everything about the direction of the movie was spot on, the camera work brilliant and the music helped create any excitment which the viewer might have felt lacking. With a little bit of comedy thrown in for good measure, this was to be the best rendition of King Arthur I have ever seen, including Richard Harris's portral.
A deep look into the dark side of a human mind. Teenagers taking on the problems of the youth, as well as hard hitting issues no one should have to face. Also touches well on parents dealing with raising and grieving a child. It is hard not to be touched by the journeys taken by all the characters in this story.
If you are looking for a good psychological horror-thriller which will not leave any scars, this is the one. The second in the Unbreakable trilagy. McAvoy plays the role(s) with flair and certainly makes each personality his own. The performances of Haley Lu Richardson and Jessica Sula as two of the victims are substandard, but I enjoyed Anya Taylor-Joy, as the third victim. The story of the girls trying to escape is interesting, with one of them trying to work with a certain personality when it emerges, to her benefit. The end is where the thriller moves to horror and was, for me, a bit of a disappointment. I felt it could have easily continued on the psyschological aspects. Another disappointment was the portral of psychological disorders; that sufferers were dangerous and no one gives a damn.
All in all, some great acting and a storyline which isn't going to make you leave the lights on.
Brilliant. Obviously cannot relate to the issues such as the lifestyle which comes with privilged wealth, but the aspects of friendship and motherhood are brilliantly represented. Writting this comment on episode 5, so still unsure who is dead or by whose hand. I know this is based on a book, but would like to finish watching it all before I give it a read. I enjoy all the actors, especially the kiddies, very well cast. And I have downloaded most of the soundtrack. Awesome tunes, used at the most brilliant times. Huge thumbs up!
I love mockumentories, and this does not fail. As a "more mature" adult, I love the tounge in cheek comments these two make, as well as their reasoning. If you are not from the UK, it some of the references might get lost on you. Hope to see another season!
Typical classic comedy, and I love it!
A time filler bordering on funny.
As a Housewife/Mum, I can completely relate to this show. Of course the situations are all over exaggerated, but that it what American comedies do (not judging - much). Katie/Katy is brilliant in this show.
Binged watched in a day. I surprised myself that I enjoyed it this much. And some of the scenes did leave me a little grossed out- the first to do so in a very long time to this horror fan!
The Walking Dead meets Real Housewives.
I had to watch a few episodes to get there, but I love the show now. JJ is brilliant and I love the fact that he can laugh at life the way he does. Some silly bits, some touching - but it does hit the spot once you get to know the characters.
Gave it a shot, mostly because of Stephen Fry. Was very clever of them to use him in a few episodes, (and even then very little of him). I expected more of Joel McHale, but even he fails to hold this show together. 7 Episodes and I am still not sure what is going on, or for that matter, to laugh.
I really enjoy the 90s referrences. Constance Wo (Jessica) absolutley makes the show.
Typical american family comedy. A few laughs, a chuckle and lesson learnt.
This show is my guilty pleasure! Love the cheesy, melodramatic, totally unbelievable storylines. The acting is brilliant and the narrater hilarious.
I don't know why I am still watching this. The first few seasons were OK, then they ran out of storylines.
I struggled a bit scoring this one an 7. It is a so-so movie, well directed, typical horror story plot. I enjoyed the first half and and then the horror started. And it turned out to be the same as every horror movie ever made. The reason I scored it so high in the end is because up to the half-way mark, it did have a lot of promise.
It seems more and more like horror writers have finally run out of finding a good way to portray a story and this is what we can expect in the future.
For years I have faithfully watched this programme. I have loved most of the storys, and enjoyed how they were able to keep it fresh and current.
That being said, I have no idea what they are trying to achieve with Season 28. To say it has lost its magic is just not words enough. The characters have undergone subtle changes which leave you wondering where the guys we have been watching for the past 27 years have gone. The plot lines are too complex and the stories don’t flow. An attempt to bring in as many characters in one episode as possible means that it is hard to connect with 1 or 2 characters, as was always the case. The music/score has been cut down, taking away from the feel of the storyline, and only short clips are on offer. This in line with the long pauses between lines makes you wonder if there has been a major budget cut in this area. Overall, the storylines have become rather depressing, offering very few laughs, chuckles or “Awww” moments.
I would love to see the old format returned. Us loyal fans and the generations still to discover this little slice of animation history, deserve it.
One of the best animations out there! Very underrated.
Can't wait for this to come back! Just love Lee Mack
Very disappointing. some very good actors plagued by bad story lines and bad directorship.
I can't wait for this episode, the return of Lana Winters!
It is a bit like watching a train crash and you cant look away. All over the place, trying to make a story out of scraps.
Very good. But it did leave me with a lot of questions, which I suppose is a good thing in itself.
This show just gets better and better. I love their small victories, gained as a family.
If you are older than 12, forget it.
A lovely feel good movie. Worth a watch if you need a bit of a lift.
I have never been swept up by a movie before. While learning how they lived and Jack's perception of the world, I was enthralled. I was scared during get both the build up to, and the actual escape. The tears started flowing when Jack first saw the world and there was very little time after that where I wasn't crying.
I fell in love with both the characters and the portrayal of their story. Score: 9.5/10. Loses half a star for not showing more of the amazing female police officer who helped him when found.
One of the horror genres most underestimated movies. If you are looking for blood and gore, this is not going to offer that. But a physiological horror which is hard to beat.
