After the one with the Prime minister and pig, its got to be done..

Update: I watched The Waldo Moment again with the 13 year old (he asked me to jump ahead past the sex scene grin) and he showed a mature understanding of what was going on. He then watched Be Right Back on his own and showed the same level of understanding. I have told him he can watch White Bear this morning, while the younger ones are out at music school.

Waldo was too repulsive. Not sure he really had to be for it to work.

The character Waldo itself wasn't at all amusing and considering he was supposed to be comic genius the whole thing just didn't work for me.

I thought Waldo was the weakest episode but actually closest to the truth of things at the moment.

Interesting to see party made up of stand up comedians has done very well in the Italian elections today!

Adds a new rl spooky slant on clever Mr Brookers Waldo story..

First one was very interesting, white bear was horrific to watch, I really don't think we are far off that sort of thing actually happening. Waldo was the worst- I lost interest halfway through, even tried watching it on +1 but still didnt manage to get to the end.

White Bear was bloody brilliant.

Waldo was shite.

thanks for replying. it was very powerful stuff.

I see what he's getting at this week but the jump from local by-election to taking over the world was a bit quick. I think they should have gone into the "do you speak Spanish?" stuff more.

basking, I think it's just to set up the idea in the woman's head. It is plausible they (the killers) got the photo and kept it as a momento but bascially it's to fuck with her head so she thinks she's lost her daughter, to make a better set up.

There is a scene of a different couple doing an appeal for the lost girl so I think it's clear those are her parents. The bits about her looking happy struck me too but I wondered if that was just a bit of mis-judged writing, the niavety of someone who doesn't have children of that age, not realising that children would most likely not be happy to be in a strange place with strange people for days.

I suppose it's possible they've made it all up but all the voyuers wouldn't have a reason to go along with it if they hadn't seen the story of the girl going missing, capture of the couple, the trial etc.

basking.. That was last weeks.. but i thought the putting the photo back in the frame was purely to help reinact the groundhog day element. I don't think the victim was her daughter from what i remember..

Well just 'hmm' to this weeks, didn't hit me with any great thought provoking revelations.. shame.

PirateHat Mon 25-Feb-13 22:57:55

He's read 1984 then?

baskingseals Mon 25-Feb-13 22:53:58

i am a bit late to the party, but could anybody talk to me about the significance of the compere/torturer putting a photo of the little girl in the larger photo of the girl and her boyfriend.

i thought it suggested an ambiguity about whether she was actually her daughter. also some of the memory foogate of the little girl showed her looking happy and relaxed in the car.

PirateHat Mon 25-Feb-13 22:53:09

oooh that's got him.

"What's this? Irony?"

SignoraStronza Mon 25-Feb-13 22:38:50

Continuing to watch, if only because labour candidate looks absolutely identical to someone I used to know!

PirateHat Mon 25-Feb-13 22:34:37

Waldo is a bit crap isn't he? I am presuming he's meant to be? (hopefully)

Feel very sorry for him being jilted.

Jellykat Mon 25-Feb-13 22:34:18

Am going to stick with it, it's getting darker..

dontwanttobefatandforty Mon 25-Feb-13 22:28:08

tempted to just go to bed!

Jellykat Mon 25-Feb-13 22:22:26

Reckon he'd get done for some 'obscenity in a public place' type thing there..

MarshaBrady Mon 25-Feb-13 22:20:50

Awful so far.

dontwanttobefatandforty Mon 25-Feb-13 22:14:21

think Im bored with this already, had high hopes with it being the last one....

AmberSocks Mon 25-Feb-13 22:13:35

hope it gets better....

Jellykat Mon 25-Feb-13 22:12:52

Hmm...

Jellykat Mon 25-Feb-13 21:50:01

I'm definitely in!

thenightsky Mon 25-Feb-13 21:28:35

Yes... definitely watching this at 10pm.
