  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    This isn't quite exactly Star Wars TV, but...

    As wonderful as Ian McDiarmid is as Palpatine, since he's primarily a stage actor, it's a bit hard, if you don't live in the West End, to watch him in anything other than Star Wars. That's a real shame, because he's a very talented actor, and a great pleasure to watch.

    Which is why I was very happy to stumble across a TV series he starred in from a few years back called City Of Vice. It costars McDiarmid and Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont from Game of Thrones) in a bit of historical fiction set in the 18th century, wherein McDiarmid plays Henry Fielding, the pioneering early novelist and criminal court judge who founded the Bow Street runners, the first modern police department in London. It's a short series, but a very good one, though the sensitive should keep in mind that it is very explicit and definitely not for kids.

    I wonder if anyone else has seen it, and of so, what they thought. And if you haven't, it's on Netflix, so have a look - highly recommended!
