Director of “New Girl” and “Children’s Hospital”
along with executive co-producer of “How I Met Your Mother” and other talented guys made a new product. It is an absurd comedy, a clear unrestrained grotesque with many gags, slapstick jokes, plays of words, incredibly numerous references to cops-themed products and clichés. One won’t find here subtle of intellectual humor – only the simplest of the simple plot twists, dialogues and situations. Even though jokes can be understood in advance, they cause laugh anyway. It seems that the maximum pause between them is about a minute. Mocking at the most stable police-related ideas and concepts (interrogation/boss-employee relations/collecting forensics/undercover missions etc.) in the blackish way is the TV series’ essence. The same degree of madness, rush and absence of common sense can be traced in our tv download guide. If you like “Monty Python”, “The Naked Gun”, “Police Squad!” or would like to watch an American version of “Keen Eddie” – that’s definitely what is needed.
Film “T2 Trainspotting”
Sequel of the 90ies “Trainspotting”, well-known hit which has become inevitable part of American and British culture long ago, looks like a heaven’s present for International Women’s Day. Danny Boyle has forgotten his conflict with Ewan McGregor (the quarrel started after the director didn’t invite the actor to be filmed in his “Beach”), brought together quite an unusual team and made a film with a name looking like “Terminator 2”. Action takes place 20 years after events of the original film. Bagbie is on his prison term again, Renton after micro infarct comes back to Edinburgh, Spud is tackling his drug-prone troubles as before. Generally speaking, these guys’ show goes on (at least, majority of them).
The similar type of Napoleonic plans, constant problems and crazy experiencing of life can be watched in
TV series Sneaky Pete
Marius played by Giovanni Ribisi is a fraud on the verge of his being released from the prison. In his previous place of living he was constantly listening to his cellmate Pete’s stories about his happy childhood with his grandparents and their business. Marius arrives in Pete’s family and pretends being their forgotten distant relative while hoping to gain some money. However, his venture turns into a snowball of constant troubles, awkward situations, other’s family scandals and always arising problems. It is a mixture of classic conman-themed stories (for example, The Sting of 1973 here is directly mentioned) and “Breaking Bad” with its abrupt plot twists and down-to-earth crime plot.
