Watched Gary Lineker in my Grandads war last night fascinating insight to the slog up Italy and how tough the fight was.

I watched that too. I was a bit surprised that they didn't say much about Monte Cassino, or visit the war graves there, but then I assume that his Granddad wasn't involved in that particular battle?

Surely this thread is for drawing attention to any programme that could be of the slightest bit of interest to other members? :whistle:

Just finished Catch22. It was better than I expected and the bonus of some nice flying interspersed with the CGI (not too bad CGI)

I'm in two minds over this one. I haven't read the books so can't say if it follows the text or not; however, it is beautifully shot, well acted and I am looking forward to the next episode (and especially the armoured bears). However, I'm not sure if come the end of the serial I'm going to be thinking "wow" or "hmm".

I have the same feeling about "The War of the Worlds."

I started to watch the first part but soon gave up, talking animals etc. bit too much for me.

Unusually for me I gave up on War of the Worlds within half an hour. Got off to a bad start with an out of period GWR steam loco supposedly between Woking and London. To make matters worse, if the scene hadn't been present it wouldn't have mattered. That was followed by cardboard acting and a terrible script.

Worse than that, if what I've read & heard elsewhere is accurate....not only has there been the obligatory revisionist rewrite to reflect what are supposed to be current social mores ( and to change the main protagonist's gender ) they've also omitted the HMS Thunder Child incident ( as usual for WotW adaptations )
And Gatling guns instead of Maxims! :facepalm:

I haven't seen the new WotW adaptation and in many ways I just don't want to. It's one of my favourite books, it it really seems that every time an adaptation is made they utterly fail to capture the wonderful 'feel' of the book.

I guess some things are just perfect first time round.

I'm sticking with it, at least for the time being, always been a fan of H. G. Wells, and there's something that I like about SF set in the Victorian era, such as this and The Time Machine for example.

One of the reviews I heard effectively described it as 'Like a Jodie Whittaker episode of Dr Who...only worse' :lol:

Ironically, the closest film/TV adaptation to the book was an otherwise naff film made by Pendragon back in 2005, called 'The War of the Worlds -The War To End All Wars'
It's pretty much a reading-out of the book, accompanied by the occasional 'live' scene & plenty of CGI/cartoon stills/clips.
( And being a sad git, I've got a DVD copy of it )

At least the modern-era set Anglo-French series made recently makes no pretence at following the book, it's only similarity being the title.

Guess people will have to wait a lot longer for a proper true-to-source adaptation.
