Quote from: jonnyunitus on January 16, 2024, 01:45:57 PMYeah you see I really liked that device. Appearing as himself across various scenes, out of focus. Then at the end, he's fully in focus as it's the (possible) culmination of his story and he's reached some kind of acceptance. To be fair I am a sucker for a bit of self reflexively in films/tv I find it weirdly thrilling
Quote from: The Mollusk on January 20, 2024, 10:02:01 AMWas it various scenes? I'm usually pretty eagle eyed with that sort of stuff but I only recall seeing it when Danny's on the bench and then in the last episode. It was a nice way to show him getting some sense of closure from telling his story and being able to move on, but yeah unless I missed a lot of appearances I also feel like it could have been deployed a bit more.Anyway this was broadly as good as the first series I think. Such a great cast, particularly Jon Pointing who is fantastic and does mental health awareness so well. The scene where he lost it at his dad was heavy.It's quite a risk making a show rooted in tropes that are a decade old but still fresh in the memory, and also that it's a story told with earnest and doesn't rely on being overly crude or zany, and yet they pull it off marvellously. The lads mag stuff in the last episode was a bit too on the nose but otherwise I can't really fault it, it's charming and relatable, full of heart and very funny.
