Bit uneventful this week…stuff happened of course, but nothing that wasn’t completely obvious and expected.
All a bit ‘blah’ really. I’d stop watching it each week, but I have a tendency to want to watch things until the end, so I know what happens, regardless of how bad it is. It’s a curse :(

Is it me…

… or does Movie 43 look like it’s going to be absolute rubbish?

I’m not entirely sure if I can remember what happened in Sunday’s episode of Mr Selfridge. Which isn’t good!
I remember thinking that the actor who plays the french window dresser is quite good, he’s the only character I believe. Mr Selfridge is still irritatingly flamboyant (less hand gestures, but it seems to be more in his voice now. Talk normally, man!), the affair between him and Ellen Love is still ridiculous (and I now find her singing voice extremely irritating too), Agnes Towler is still wooden, and her dad still isn’t believable because he looks too young. 
Perhaps next week it’ll get better…

Golden Globes..?

When are/were the Golden Globes being broadcast in the UK???

WHY won’t the Internet tell me??!

Hmm, still not convinced…
There were less absurd hand gestures from Jeremy Piven (yay!), but Mr Selfridge still isn’t quite hitting the mark for me. The impending affair between Mr Selfridge and Ellen Love was completely obvious, and the actor portraying Agnes Towler’s father looked too young!! When he first appeared I thought he was going to be an old boyfriend, which is why I snorted with laughter (just once in this episode) as soon as it was revealed he was actually her father. 
And what was with the ‘passing thought’ of what sounded like suicide contemplation at the end?? Weird!
Until next week!

straycas-deactivated20141016 asked: Regarding your 'Mr Selfridge' text post; I agree! I was trying not to comment too much on it, though, as my parents seemed to love it. Then my dad asked which one came first, and I found that it was actually The Paradise by 8 months or so, so that was a relief to know that if anything, it was Mr Selfridge copying The Paradise. I hope it does get better, and i will endeavour to not compare the two, but hopefully the character plots will differ. >.< Sorry, hope you don't mind me sending this ^^

Hi :) of course I don’t mind. I was really surprised at how similar it was to The Paradise, and how annoying Jeremy Piven’s acting is! I’m sure the real Mr Selfridge wasn’t like that! I also find the actress who plays Agnes Dowler quite wooden, not quite sure about the casting there. I hope it gets better too, I’m sure it will as that was only the first episode. 

Oh Mr Selfridge&#8230;
I couldn&#8217;t stop snorting with laughter for the first 20 minutes of Mr Selfridge last night, mainly because of how similar it was to BBC&#8217;s The Paradise. The difference being The Paradise was good from episode 1 - Mr Selfridge may take a while longer to hook the audience, so it may get better. I hope so, it has potential. If only Jeremy Piven would stop gesturing in such ridiculous ways whenever he says something!

Happy New Year

I have a feeling things are going to start looking up in 2013. About time, too - I’ve technically been unemployed since February ‘12, and have been on a permanent low ever since then. But I can tell that’s all about to change :)

New Year’s Resolutions? I don’t usually bother with those, as I never keep to them. But I will try and complete things in 2013 that I just haven’t had time to get done, spend more time with friends and family where I can, and generally just be happy. Being unemployed for so long when you’re applying for every possible job you think you can do without going insane, and receiving no replies from anything, has been extremely draining and depressive, so I hope 2013 brings more good things instead of bad.
