Red Dwarf Xii Episode 2 Review – ‘Siliconia’

19 October 2017 1:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Red Dwarf Xii – Siliconia…

In this week’s episode of Red Dwarf Xii – titled Siliconia – we discover what a world will be like if you continue to ask Siri to rap one too many times, or demand Alexa read out Pi to 152 places (for the sixteenth time) as you walk through the living room or even ask Google to repeatedly Flip a Coin just for the lols.  This week the Boys from the Dwarf discover what it feels like to be mechanoids with heads shaped like novelty condoms.

With Lister, Cat and Rimmer making good use of their mechanoid Kryten, their day is somewhat ruined when the MILFs (Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front) arrive.  These now free mechs wander the universe freeing droids from the oppressive masters and today is Kryten’s day.

The punishment for the non-mechanoids, this being Rimmer, Lister and the Cat, is to be forced »

Paul Kaye interview: Dennis Pennis, Game Of Thrones, Zapped

We chatted to actor Paul Kaye about playing wizards, the musical Matilda, and his move from celebrity satire to serious drama…

Main image credit: Jordan Katz-Kaye

“Bitterness, really” is Paul Kaye’s explanation of what drove his satirical red-carpet interviewer Dennis Pennis in the nineties. “I’d hit thirty, I’d sort of failed as a musician, I’d failed as an artist I felt at the time.” Ambushing Hollywood’s elite in the persona of a brash, punk nuisance wasn’t Kaye’s first choice for stardom, he admits. “It wasn’t how I expected to forge a career. Of all the things I thought I’d end up doing, it wasn’t that.”

Red Dwarf Xii episode 2 review: Siliconia

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

Siliconia is a staggeringly ambitious episode that shows exactly what Red Dwarf can do in the Dave era...

This review contains spoilers.

12.2 Siliconia

“Our heads are sensibly shaped.”

Kryten is inarguably Red Dwarf's most iconic character. The rubbery, angular mask of the mechanoid head is a marvellous design that should probably stifle any actor wearing it, but Robert Llewellyn's performance has only become more impressive over time. In terms of design and personality, he's the character who could scarcely belong to any other show.

Aside from Llewellyn, only a few other actors have donned the mechanoid get-up in previous episodes, but a lot of what we see in Siliconia feels like it's been on Doug Naylor »

TV Imports: The Best Foreign Netflix Shows to Binge, Part 3

18 August 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Even though Netflix has started to cancel its underperforming series in earnest, that doesn’t mean it lacks for programming. In fact, its slate of offerings is fuller than ever, which makes it difficult for viewers to choose when faced with an embarrassment of bingeable riches.

Netflix’s foreign series, however, rarely get promotion amidst all of the other American shows that have been produced. Although IndieWire has previously provided handy lists of foreign-language series a couple of times, including other imports, that is only a hint of all offerings available.

TV: White Gold Review

24 May 2017 10:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Gloria Daniels-Moss

Everyone liked The Inbetweeners, right? Yes, the show had many cringe-worthy, repetitive and outright stupid moments but offered a fair, if heightened take on the burden of adolescence.

Damon Beesley, who co-wrote the series alongside Iain Morris, now branches away from the playground and brings us a slightly darker and sassier story with travelling double-glazing salesman Vincent (Ed Westwick) heading the show. The BBC2 comedy White Gold starts as it means to go on. It’s slick, smart and silly – there is fun to be had here that’s for sure.

It’s Essex, 1983 and here we meet cocksure Vincent, our charismatic and terribly arrogant narrator that gets his claws in from the get go. This obnoxious man is the epitome of a classic salesman; giving us handy tips and breaking the forth wall just to tell us exactly how amazing he is at his job and »

White Gold: the Inbetweeners double-glaze Britain in the Loadsamoney 80s

24 May 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Stars of The Inbetweeners and Gossip Girl have come together to flog windows in a new TV comedy that perfectly captures the cash-flashing, un-pc 1980s

It’s 1983. Britain has a female Tory Pm. Labour is in the doldrums. Individualism is the ideology of the day. In a double-glazing showroom in Essex, Jay from The Inbetweeners is taking the mick out of Simon from The Inbetweeners, while Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl looks on with amusement.

This is the strange-but-familiar setup for White Gold, the new comedy from Inbetweeners co-creator Damon Beesley, which follows the triumphs and balls-ups of a trio of window salesmen as they try to shimmy up the greasy pole to success. Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick is Vincent Swan, a smarmy family man (who continually cheats on his wife) with the nous to play the lucrative double-glazing game for massive profit. Inbetweeners stars James Buckley and Joe Thomas »

It tells the story of a double-glazing showroom in Essex in 1983, led by charismatic salesman Vincent (Westwick). Smart, handsome and confident, he will happily break the rules if it guarantees a sale.

Trailer for the new BBC comedy series White Gold from The Inbetweeners co-creator

5 May 2017 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its series premiere later this month, the BBC has released a trailer for White Gold, the upcoming comedy series from the award-winning co-creator of The Inbetweeners Damon Beesley, which stars Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl), Joe Thomas (Fresh Meat), James Buckley (The Inbetweeners), and Lauren O’Rourke (This is England 90); check it out below…

Set in Essex in 1983, the series perfectly captures the atmosphere of the era through the inner-workings of a double-glazing showroom, led by Vincent Swan (Westwick), a smart, handsome, charismatic salesman who will happily break the rules if it guarantees a sale. His team include Fitzpatrick (Buckley), a smarmy reprobate who can charm the life savings out of anyone, and Lavender (Thomas), a failed musician whose crippling politeness and moral backbone has a habit of getting in the way of a sale.

It’s a story of dodgy shenanigans, scams and petty rivalries – alongside free-flowing drugs, »
