I wasn't sold on Reacher. Thought it could have been a little better but I don't know how. I did enjoy the movies. It was ok and will watch the second season when it comes out.

As I mentioned above I loved but I think I know what you mean. I can’t put my finger on it but it didn’t have a Hollywood feel about it or a major US TV series feel like NCIS or Criminal Minds type polish on it. I imagine budget and production has a lot to do with it though.

It was made in Canada. I had a look at the town they used on on Google maps looking for the locations they used. Was surprised when I used Streetview that you can see them filming. Looked like episode 5 to me.

Port Perry, Ontario if you are interested.

My dog's been watching a lot of Harry's Practice lately, recorded on the Fetch TV box, and he also likes one of the new free streamed channels on Fetch "The Pet Collective"
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Can't let one of  my dogs watch any show with dogs in it. I get this reaction at the TV.

The only dog I've had that watched TV as much as my current dog, Jack, was a Shepherd/Husky cross called Max. Both dogs used to attack the TV at times, but they got used to watching from the lounge. As soon as they got off the lounge, the channel was changed, or now just hit pause, til they got back on the lounge.

Watched 5 minutes of an episode  of Xena, Princess Warrior. 5 minutes is all I could take. How could we think that it was an ok show back then. Xena doesn't even look as good. Must have had something to do with late teens/early 20's hormones.

Harry Palmer: The Ipcress File

It's a six parter. Not sure if it has aired in Oz yet. Chanel 7 has bought it.

Just finished watching Fringe. It's a big series - six seasons with about 20 episodes of about 40 minutes each.
Strange indeed but somewhat compelling

Episode of the show im watching now has ceilings falling down with light fittings lying on the floor with water flowing over it, sparks and fire in the light fitting as if someone's in there with a welder. And the sparks keep on flying, and flying, and flying. Now its a medical show from another country. Daughter is an ICU nurse but done stints in emergency. She always has issues with tv shows and the inaccuracy of what actually happens in some cases, be it another hospital in another country. Now  I have to say something. A florescent light fitting falling from the ceiling and sitting on the floor might or might not have enough loose cable or break cable fixings to reach the floor, but will give it a possible. A glowing orange colour from inside that light fitting is more likely a WTF. Now sparks that you can relate to a welder, on a lighting circuit, I have to call BS. Then maybe their regulations allow such things, not likely at all. Protection device should have tripped on the first arc, not allow it to go on and on till the dude turned off the supply generator the the building after making his way there. OK, OK, it's a tv series, it's called dramatising the scene. I never knew I was such a critic until now. Daughter must be rubbing off on me.

Hi,
   Yep, Mrs gets mad at me for criticism of "special effects" efforts at increasing dramatic scenes. Especially when they transgress the laws of physics.

Abandoned Engineering on SBS.

Been some wild stuff done over the years.

All part of history..... not some weirdo "reality show" that's heavily scripted.

I like it.

One of the presenters is a tranny.....Not that there's anything wrong with that.  ;D

Looks like a bloke, sounds like a bloke and has a really penetrating voice.

it is SBS.....

It would be better if they didn't waffle so much, but you get 4 different items per show.
