An Excellent Depiction
As soon as I saw the ad for "Changi" on the History Channel, I knew I'd love it. It captured the ANZAC spirit fantastically - you would die if you didn't have mates around you. The characters of "Changi" were strong and each brought something different into the story, and the Japanese soldiers weren't criticised, but were depicted as normal soldiers doing what they thought was right, just as the Australians were doing. Direction, screenplay, acting and setting were all done wonderfully, with a clear easy-to-follow plot. Humour was the soldiers' key to survival, and it was great to see a mini-series about war actually have some sort of humour in it, which is usually difficult to do without offending people. From what I've read about soldiers in Changi PoW camp, this story is a very realistic approach to the three and a half years those Australian, British, New Zealand, American and Dutch men spent there. I would recommend this series to anyone, whether you are interested in war or not. 10/10.
Hogan's Heroes (1965)
Hogan's Heroes is the best show in the world
If there is one show that should be made compulsory for every person on this Earth to watch, it should be "Hogan's Heroes". It's the funniest, most original show around - it's a breath of fresh air from the cruddy reality shows we're fed nowadays. I've only watched a few seasons and I'm hooked totally. Great acting, great directing, great screenplay - everything about it is fantastic. My personal favorite is Carter, because he's not so bright (like me) but he tries his best. Also his impersonation of Hitler is HILARIOUS. Maria the White Russian is also gorgeous and the funniest of funny.
All of the characters are great, though, each with their own quirky traits and skills. The great thing is, though, is that it keeps you guessing, and you never know what plan Hogan has for his men next, or how he's going to solve a problem.
It's original, it's hilarious, it's pure gold.
I rate it 10/10.
