...i barely watched tv for the past hmm 5 years lol...i now have some spare time and i have been watching it frequently...im actually watching dr house, family guy, the simpsons, the tudors & project runaway...it's so funny!!
The guy who played Oberyn was only given 3 weeks of training for the scene so you can't expect much from him aside from his fancy and totally unnecessary dance routine against The Mountain. Has anyone else seen the video of Halthorr Shmerglflrger deadlifting almost 1000 pounds?
Definitely a wise choice as a replacement actor, the guy's a beast.
Now that I have finally came to the point, where everbody else is (a.k.a. I watched all 9 episodes of fourth season, with a bit of napping between some boring scenes), I decided I liked Oberyn. He seemed so obnoxious to me at the beginning, but as it turned out, he was very witty and thus likeable to me. But I knew as the fight scene started, that his tongue will cost him his life.
And I believe the depth of relationship between Tyrion and Jaime has been presented quite eloquently during the episodes, so the whole beetle discussion didn't have any deeper impact on that, from my point of view.
'Allo 'Allo was brilliant. It's funny that it was funny as each character pretty much had one catchphrase of shtick about them that they kept repeating but somehow it stayed funny. Officer Crabtree used to have me in stitches when I was a kid, and still does.
Not seen 24 mentioned much here. It's a cheesy and predictable series but a lot of fun. Just finished the new series and I enjoyed it. Actually felt different from their previous ones, no doubt due to the fact it was set in London and was set over 12 hours rather than 24 so it lacked the stretched-out nature other series have had. Was quite enjoyable.
