yeah, I'm only 4 episodes in and we've had two flashback episodes so far. Stretching it out to fuck.nahhhh, it was watchable in that I watched it but the whole thing could have been done in a film so slight was the plot. I wasn't mad on the Haunting of Hill house but it was at least trying with some fancy technical episodes and stuff.
the first thing i watched on Channel 4 was The Animals and i've been vegetarian since.There was a thing broadcasted on the early days of Channel 4 which terrified the fuck out of me at the time, and I've never been able to find reference to it, or see again since.
It was made to look like it was partly filmed in CC TV, so a lot of what's going on it just captured by these grainy static shots, no framing, action in weird parts of the screen and so on. The plot was something along the lines of some class of organ harvesting scheme, white vans, plastic boxes of... fucking, bits of human?
Like there was chase scenes, where you'd just see a CC TV cam. Nothing. No sounds, just rough workroom sounds maybe, and then some cunt would come SPRINTING through the frame, and back out. Then it would cut to the next cam, but the cams themselves were these shitty res 80s jobbies, so you were constantly craning to figure out what was going on. The next cam would have the guy off in the corner, door booted open, grabbed, dragged out of frame.
Then it cut to organ processing.
It interleaved "normal" decently filmed stuff with the CC TV feeds. A lot of the CC TV stuff was idle, nothing happening in the shot, just clicking between cams, until something DID happen, which was unspeakably brutal and fast, and then back into switching idle cam mode. You couldn't hear sounds even, just the cams clicking through, background conversations, like in a dull office.
I can't remember all that much of it, because it was so frightening I couldn't watch much of it. I remember it was close to the time that Channel 4 came into existence, it was one of the first things I watched on Channel 4, and I was a bit anxious if everything on this channel was going to be similarly fucked.
still going with this. Most of the way through season 3 and its still fantastic. I'm starting to get upset now at the thoughts of how bad I know its gonna get.Re-watching season 1 of The Walking Dead. God be with the days when it was good. I plan to re-watch seasons 1 and 2 (and might stretch to 3). It went to shite after that.
