I didn't really care for Christopher Walken's giant baboon character, but thankfully he was only in one section of the movie. Most of the other scenes were entertaining enough and the whole plot moved pretty quickly. Yeah I was surprised that it was and OK film.
Rating - B
So yeah action and special effects were right about where they needed to be but the story was so forgettable. Not really sure why it got such high ratings.

I think most folks wouldn't like the movie since barely anything happened in it, but the main actor, Jason Segel, did do a good job portraying this kinda troubled author. I'm sure I might've missed the true purpose of the film, but as it stands, it was fair, just boring.

The story is about this British guy in the late 18th century who returns from the American Revolutionary War to his lands in England, as he was from a minor aristocratic family. He sets up shop and tries to get his life together and for some reason an interesting story formed around this premise.
The character struck me as sorta an ass, but sometimes he made some positive decisions so I suppose he was a good enough character to root for. I like the way these British folk form their sentences though...the dialog can get interesting and makes you feel like you're in a fancy library.
Again, I never thought I would enjoy a whole BBC series, but I guess that's what happens when you get older. Before you know it I might be donating to PBS...or not I'm too cheap for that.

So what I do it watch the 1st episode of a lot of shows and see what sticks. It's funny how some shows totally draw you in from the get-go and so many others totally crash and die in a ditch someplace; luckily this show wasn't one of those.
From the first pilot episode I was hooked...the characters, feel, and continuous plotline were all quite good. I blasted through the whole 2 seasons without a second thought. Yeah its new to me that a TV series can truly have a continuous plot. Other past shows like ER or Firefly were kinda mini stories per episode but this show, along with others I've recently watched seriously had one long plot...sorta like watching a super long film.
Either way I would highly recommend this series to anyone who has time to burn.
