    And their filming around lake Como was way more coherent then QoB could manage.

    That car looked kind of nice too.

    And that American that was responsible for a 2nd day filming for Clarkson was a laugh, especially as Clarkson is always complimenatry about the average American.

    I'd still love to own the caravan/airship from a few years back.

    Shame I can't find the clip where the airship is revealed to the tune of "Capsule In Space" from YOLT.

    Is you career not heading in the direction you'd hope for Mr Lautner?

    This is revenge for the UK trying to force Piers Morgan onto the US. The US didn't want Morgan so they gave him back. Expect Lautner to return home soon.

    I absolutely cannot wait for this:

    http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2890836505/

    An absolute cracking cast - Thornton, Freeman, Odenkirk.

    It's going to be on Channel 4 here in the UK. :-bd

    Yeah, I've been following this. If I like the Coen Bros. film when I see it, I may give it a shot. Martin and Odenkirk already make me want to catch it.

    Well the big news lately is that BBC 3 has been axed. Shame as there was some good stuff on there over the years and even though most of their comedies were crap, at least they supported new comedies. And what channel will Family Guy and American Dad be on now?

    http://www.deadline.com/2014/02/bbc-america-robin-hood-drama-series-nottingham-dracula-creator/

    So they're turning Robin Hood into a medieval superhero who's the sheriff in the day time. I think this sounds like a bad idea. He's an outlaw who lives in the forest with his mates and robs from the rich to give to the poor. How hard is that to get right?

    I didn't like the Russel Crowe/Ridley Scott film either, it was a boring gritty origin story. I used to watch the ITV show when I was a kid, with Jason Connery in. There was a BBC series a few years ago with Lily Allen's dad in, I never watched it. Anybody know if that was any good?

    I don't know about the decision to make Robin Hood and Nottingham the same character. It's different, but who knows how well it'll translate with audiences.

    I think my friend told me about the Robin Hood BBC series from a few years ago and that he liked it, though shockingly in the show (spoilers ahead)
    Marion is apparently killed out of nowhere.

    If I am not mistaken, Family Guy and American Dad are on FX (Sky 124, Virgin 157).

    Hey? BBC axed? What did I miss?

    I think that's just repeats though. BBC Three get the new ones and they turn up on FX a year or two later. I guess what'll probably happen is that the shows will become exclusive to FX.

    I know, right? Read the synopsis and see for yourself. Nottingham by night, Hood by day it seems.

    Cheers for the link, find it very odd that? So I wonder if BBC4 will go the same way?

    @RogueAgent Yeah I wondered about that, apparently it is at risk of being scrapped, although I'm not sure that's a good move. With BBC Three alot of it is aimed at teenagers so moving all the programmes onto iplayer makes sense as teenagers are constantly on the internet anyway. With BBC Four the target audience is older so the people who watch it might be opposed to them making it entirely internet based.

    Anyway, there's a Friday The 13th TV show being made

    http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/04/24/friday-the-13th-tv-series-in-the-works

    I can't see this working to be honest. The FT13 films are slasher flicks. The TV format doesn't suit it.

    I thought the same thing when The Walking Dead premiered. I was proven so very wrong that TWD is my favorite TV series to date.

    There has already been a Friday The 13th series, but unlike that one, this new one will feature Jason. It sounds like each episode will be like a 2 hour Friday film. Not that I have anything again that, i'll take all the Jason they will give us.

    I had to update this thread because I'm very excited about this news:

    'Game of Thrones' star Pedro Pascal is joining 'Narcos,' the Jose Padilha directed, Wagner Moura led series about Pablo Escobar. So the director who kicked ass with the first two 'Tropa de Elite' films (which also starred Moura as the main character, who will now be playing Escobar himself) has added Prince Oberyn from GoT. I am beyond excited for this:
