Grantchester

Did it always suck?

by Anonymousreply 2907/12/2020

Yes.

There the shadowed waters fresh lean up to embrace the naked flesh.

It's always been kind of dull, storytellingwise.

It’s gone from bad to really terrible.

So it seems like they are setting up the same scenario with the new guy. Can't marry but has steamy anguished sex with girl friend. If that's going to be the case, I wish the writers had made her an anti-marriage (not anti-sex) Trotskyist or something, "marriage enslaves women", that kind of thing, up front. So she can opt out of the draaaama.

This season was better than in the past because they've expanded the world by adding more characters to the mix. It became tiresome after a bit, especially Geordie's home life, but I liked that it was more than just Geordie and Will.

I was really disappointed in it from the beginning.

I enjoyed the first two seasons. James Norton was easy on the eyes and I enjoyed his friendship with Robson Green’s Geordie. Hated the married love interest (and that actress has stunk up everything I‘ve seen her in since.). It officially umped the shark in Season 3 in an episode in which Sidney leaves the parsonage to infiltrate a band of gypsies.

I liked the first two seasons well enough, but I started to lose interest in the following seasons. Once James Norton was gone, there was no reason for me to keep watching.

It has become like a Ryan Murphy show in that it exists in its own reality. This most recent season has the gay vicar being very open about his homosexuality, and in that time period, he probably would have been arrested and jailed.

He goes on vacation with his boyfriend (where'd that money come from?), he brings his boyfriend to the birthday party. I'm waiting for the sour-faced housekeeper to report his ass to the authorities.

The thing is that I really liked the tortured, supressed gay vicar. It had a certain poignancy in the show that is now lost.

Was this show basically a rip off of Father Brown?

In season 3 it’s revealed that Mrs McGuire, the sanctimonious housekeeper, has a husband who is still alive and is a professional grifter. On Father Brown there was also an episode where we learn that the husband of Mrs. McCarthy, the sanctimonious church secretary, is alive and a professional grifter.

What is this Granchester, yet more from Julian Fellowes?

It's not from Julian Fellowes. None of the plots are stolen.

He's the star of the horribly titled McMafia on BBC One and AMC. He had a small role in last year's "Little Women".

He's doing a third season of "Happy Valley."

I found the bare-assed young man very attractive, and I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of tush shown.

by Anonymousreply 1807/07/2020

I didn't even bother trying to watch this. I'd heard about something really homophobic from Robson Greene. I don't even remember what it was.

by Anonymousreply 1907/07/2020

Oh the hot ginger man is gone? Feh.

by Anonymousreply 2007/07/2020

Something homophobic from Robson Greene? That would be surprising, since he's enjoyed "gay cult character" status before, notably on his show "Wire in the Blood."

by Anonymousreply 2107/07/2020

The new guy is really hot

by Anonymousreply 2207/07/2020

No one expected it to have the brilliance of Noel Coward. James Norton is a decent actor and fucking gorgeous. His replacement is a beautiful man. The show is comfort food.

He's an exhibitionist. He's shown ass in at least three other shows he's been in. I think "Wire In The Blood" "Grantchester" and "Reckless".

Swimming nude in Northumberland will cause extreme shrinkage.

The show was very good, especially the first two seasons. It seemed to be somewhat aimless during the third season. I'm not sure how it's fairing during season four after James Norton left.

by Anonymousreply 2707/07/2020

James Norton like to show his ass too.

Goodness, that was an unpleasant and unnecessary episode.
