There She Goes. And it was brilliant.
Drama? Watford 2019/20.
Got murdered at the Etihad, so doesn’t count.
Just finished rewatching The Newsroom. Written by Aaron Sorkin about the media. Main focus is a news company who try to fight against the way the mainstream media do the news. Only lasted three seasons but had some great storylines, and was a shame when it didn’t get renewed. Also stars celeb crush Olivia Munn so gets bonus points.
This is good especially as I work with the Dr it is based on.
Free to watch on youtube.
Does manslaughter count? If not then Succession.
A good show that I really liked, but so frustratingly failed to fully transition to "Great". It was right on the cusp!
Blimey - it was almost a year ago: "The Loudest Voice".
i would agree I really liked the premise, but the first season was the best when they dealt with some really interesting true stories. some of the later storylines lost me, they should have continued to review real life events.
the acting is quality and sorkins writing as per usual was exceptional.
A bit off topic is that I watched a documentary on Netflix about a year ago, called "Audrie and Daisy", about the alleged rapes of a couple of unconnected 14 yr old girls in the U.S. back in 2012. Sad cases, Audrie committed suicide soon after, and the majority of the film was about Daisy's ordeal where the charges were dropped, the social media backlash, and her battle to get back to some form of normality. She seemed to have turned the corner and looked to be living a "normal" life. The documentary raised many issues, the pressures on young girls, the difficulty in prosecuting such crimes, particularly where there was a political link to one of the alleged perps. A difficult watch.
The documentary is still on Netflix and there was an article in the Mail a few years ago about it. www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4176786/Teen-rape-victim-Daily-Coleman-speaks-out.html
I just found out yesterday that Daisy shot herself last Wednesday. I must admit, the news made me cry a bit. But then I've always been a softy.
