signubd - agree about Manhunter, I thought Brian Cox nailed that role and was far more sinister than Hopkins. Brian Cox is one of those actors that when I see his name on the credits I think 'great' and am never disappointed even when the film itself is a right old load of gubbins. Chain Reaction the Keanu Reeves epic I'm thinking of you.
Mrs Brown's Boys and Miranda

Miranda is utter tripe.
Carter, I don't know if it is available on BBC iPlayer, but Brian Cox recently did a documentary series on addictions which was extremely interesting.
It was also filmed almost entirely in and around Dundee, but please don't let that put you off.
Hoi Ferry girls hands off The Dee
Says the 'snootie' boy...
Have you watched it Hoops, of all the really beautiful, nice places he could have filmed, he chose all the really run-down, former industrial areas.
And it seems to have rained the entire time...
I like Miranda. It isn't trendy, biting or cleverly political, but it is funny. Like comedies in the old days. It's nice to see someone focusing on the 'funny'.
I saw a bit of Mrs Brown's Boys but I didn't really understand it.
Strangely enough, all the best comedy seems to be on Sky these days. Moone Boy was extremely good, for example. The BBC seems to have become awful just lately: I never thought I'd see the day when Sky was making better original TV than the Beeb.
