Did any of y'all watch the 2013 limited series out of the UK called Southcliffe? The show's only available for rental on Amazon here in the US from what I can make out; I posted about it when it was announced and promptly entirely forgot it existed until two days ago, when a friend recommended I catch up with it -- the weird thing about that is the entire thing was directed by Martha Marcy May Marlene director Sean Durkin, and I just recently spent time wondering where the hell he'd gotten himself to without ever noticing ohh, he did do something between MMMM and the movie called The Nest that he just premiered at Sundance a couple of months ago. I think sometimes my eyes glaze right past TV work -- I am such a snob.
at this link if you're so wisely inclined) Rory Kinnear, Shirley Henderson, Sean Harris, Eddie Marsan, Hayley Squires (we worship Hayley Squires in this household), and it's about a small town being terrorized by a man on a shooting rampage -- I am currently two episodes in and it is entirely, totally fucking me the fuck up. So I ask, as I started this post, have any of you seen it? If not, I recommend it. So far. Like I said I'm only half-way through.
More broadly than that though, I really want to know -- what are you guys watching? I have naturally been binge-watching a ton of things, everything in sight really, over the past few home-bound weeks, and I'm planning on doing a catch-up post about all of that proooobably next week. But I wanna hear from you guys! It's a goddamned pandemic -- leave me comments, tell me what you're watching, what you have watched, what you're currently enjoying. And after the jump I'll trade you a few more shots of our boy Joe Dempsie here...
