I saw the trailer for it a couple of weeks ago and it's amazing. Same directors as Xena and Hercules.

There's also a new show about vampires that will be on HBO; not into vampires but it's written by Alan Ball whom I love!



Do you mean True Blood? I am looking forward to that one. I read the series that it is based on so it will be interesting to see how it compares.

My bad...Pirates of the Caribbean.

Some of the shots looked like that. For instance there was this girl in a fluffy dress looking back while she was running. And I know they showed a compus a few times and something else. I dont mind if they play off the POTC themes.

Crusoe

Postby sgn1 » Thu August 28th, 2008, 5:39 pm

Hi there,

I'm dying to see Crusoe too, as some of it was filmed in and around in York. I missed Sean Bean down by the river :eek: Narrowly missed Sam Neill at Ryedale Folk Museum, where they were filming Crusoe's early life (will be looking out for the old buildings there!) and I was there with a re-enactment group. Unfortunately they didn't need our services (we're late Iron Age/Roman!)

Every time we trotted to visit the loo we had to be very careful and quiet as we were going right by the set. Have to say, we all paid more visits to the 'facilitiies' than we normally do :rolleyes: Anyway, the actors were in big hats, cuffs and ruffles, some were soldiers, and there was one middleaged lady in skirts. Think we sighted the young heroe, but none of us were sure ... Filming went on till the light faded. One of our number met Sam Neill in his night clothes - that is, our chap was in his shorts coming back from visiting the loo, and Sam Neill was wearing jeans :D . Our chap said 'Hello, are you Sam Neill?' Sam Neill merely grunted. Or at least our chap thought it was Sam Neill ... Perhaps it was his stand-in?

Anyway, viewing figures for Crusoe will be high in the York area, that's for sure. It's the biggest thing that's happened here since the Vikings invaded :cool:

Just finished watching Dexter (Season 1 & 2) on DVD - no spoilers from me if you haven't seen these already. BUT - edge of your seat - as always!


Oh, and looking forward to CSI: Gold Coast (aussie viewers will know what I mean) :)

I'm really curious about this series, I want to see if it's any better than the books, I really didn't like Charlaine Harris' writing, it got on my nerves. Maybe they'll manage to make something like Dexter, I love the series and hate the books!
