Outcasts

Postby Tonyblack » Tue Feb 08, 2011 11:11 am

Did anyone else watch Outcasts on the BBC last night?

I thought it was promising and worth checking out next week.

I just came from the IMDB message boards (I must stop visiting these) where several people thought that as the planet was called 'Carpathia', there might be vampires in the show. :roll: As if we don't have enough vampire movies/TV shows/books etc.

I wasn't impressed. Having 30-odd years experience of working in the offshore oil industry, I'd have to say that the writers do not have the slightest idea of how a small disciplined group selected for a mission to a remote location actually functions. Nor does anyone involved have any idea of how people accustomed to guns actually carry and use them

not that either comment is particularly uncommon

Just watched the first eppy.

It's a bit "clunky", but I'll keep watching............ mainly coz Eric Mabius (Daniel Meade in Ugly Betty) has just arrived, and he's looking like he's gonna be baaaaad!

eerrmmmmm... yes..... they are the crew of a spaceship the size of an office block who are in sufficient contact with earth that they are still receiving resupply and colonists. They have multi-millions of dollars' worth of hardware provided from public funds. They look more like the Gogafrincham B Ark crew....

you want mismatched odds and sods on a long, isolated, dangerous mission, try The Cruel Sea or better yet, Moby Dick or White Jacket

On the BBC POV (Points of View) boards, the most messages say that they think it's Sh*te.

Others on POV think that the haters are wanting it to be as awful as Bonekickers and The Deep.

:D

Patrick Stewart's Ahab was truly awful. The Gregory Peck one was better by far. But the book is best.

Cruel Sea is one of the great sea stories.

Star Trek Voyager is always popular in the offshore sector, partly for its sheer camp hamminess but mainly for Kate Mulgrew rraaawwwrrrrr


oh, and Ice Road Truckers...
