Louisa Mellor Jun 1, 2017

Some exciting new UK drama and comedy commissions are making their way to TV over the next year or so…

We know, we know. You still have two episodes of Fargo season two before you can think about starting season three. You’ve already fallen behind on American Gods. Your planner memory is chock-a-block with Big Little Lies and that Oj Simpson thing and some Spanish prison series your workmate bullied you into recording. You’re struggling to make time for Twin Peaks. New Game Of Thrones is just around the corner. And guess what, Netflix UK have just added a whole new season of It’s Always Sunny, those sods. You need a list of new TV show recommendations like you need a hole in the head.

And yet, as long as they keep making them, we’ll keep recommending them. »

Movie Review – Mindhorn (2016)

5 May 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mindhorn, 2016.

Directed by Sean Foley.

Starring Julian Barrett, Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, Andrea Riseborough, Jessica Barden, Harriet Walter, Kenneth Branagh, and Steve Coogan.

Synopsis:

A has-been actor best known for playing the title character in the 1980s detective series “Mindhorn” must work with the police when a serial killer says that he will only speak with Detective Mindhorn, whom he believes to be a real person.

There’s a moment late on in Mindhorn – Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby’s farcical master class-in which Barratt’s Richard Thorncroft, a washed up actor drunk on nostalgia, finds himself duct taped into the costume that once made him famous, his skin painted a Tango-tinge of orange, his hair covered in sofa-interior fluff. Hoping to be rescued by his accomplice, he begins to squawk. It’s fantastically absurd and gelastic, and only places further emphasis on what makes Mindhorn so joyful in its rib-tickling silliness. »

Hilariously stupid trailer for Mindhorn takes us back to the 80’s

15 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

There is something quite special about the 80’s when it comes to detective shows, bad hair, bad fashion sense and the icing on the doughnut the hilarious cringe-worthy exaggerated acting that made these shows car crash TV. From the new trailer for Mindhorn, anyone old enough to remember these will be flooded with a whole host of nostalgia.

The trailer show’s a washed-up has-been actor, Richard Thorncroft (played by Julian Barratt) 25 years after he become a household name in the hit TV show, Mindhorn. Grey and balding and belly for of the high-life – time has not been kind. Thorncroft unexpectedly gets a return call to act out his detective-like skills but this time not for any show but to help catch an escaped real life criminal who will only deal with Mindhorn in his negotiations. Packed full of hilarious, yet eye-rolling gags and antics, Mindhorn looks »

It’s Truth Time! Check out the new trailer for British comedy Mindhorn

15 March 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ahead of its release on May 5th, StudioCanal have released the brand new trailer and UK poster for the upcoming British comedy Mindhorn. The film debuted at last year’s film festival and by all accounts, is an absolute hoot.

Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).

Directed by Sean Foley from a script based on a Simon Farnaby (Yonderland, Horrible Histories) original idea, and co-written by 2016 Bifa nominated Julian Barratt( The Mighty Boosh) and Farnaby, Mindhorn is British comedy at its best. »
