Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on May 18, 2022, 06:55:04 PMThe fact that the concert scene only showed a silhouette makes me think he wasn't involved, but I suppose he could have filmed the news bit without having to be on location.It would need to be some The Irishman style de-aging though. He's pushing 60.
Quote from: Vroomo on May 18, 2022, 10:43:03 PMI had to go Google the post-credits bit, to see it was a thing in season 2. Seemed a little bit unnecessary that.Also, I was convinced Sunrise by the Divine Comedy was going to be the last song.
Quote from: Jockice on May 18, 2022, 09:37:11 AMAt last a local newspaper headline that didn't contain either the word 'local' or the name of the town. Unfortunately it was crap. It's unlikely that a front page lead story would have contained a reference to Fatboy Slim as a significant proportion of the local population would have been unlikely to have heard of him. It would have been 'top music star' or suchlike, or at a push (as suggested on the headlines thread on the main board) 'Praise You hitmaker.' Also there's no way there would have been so much space left on the third line of the headline. Wlll TV producers never learn?Having said that...I thought the episode was pretty bobbins. Apart from the secret recording and the reaction of Sarah's 'fiance' to her dressed as a nun, which were both pretty funny. I think the show has reached the end of the line. And yes, I know there's an episode tonight. But whether I watch it at the time depends on what's happening in the football. If Rangers are winning or losing 5-0 I'll probably turn over. Actually probably not in the latter case as I'll already be laughing too much.

Quote from: A Hat Like That on May 19, 2022, 09:06:25 AMIt felt like it had been written very early on in the series and returned to with a few changes. From the extended opening scene, which I thought was great, through to the polling booth montage, I really solidly enjoyed that. Thought the return cameo in the booth was excellently done - how to do an awful lot with very little. As for not knowing my own history, until this series, I hadn't clocked that there was a referendum on the Good Friday agreement.

Quote from: Utter Shit on May 18, 2022, 02:46:23 PMSpoiler alertGlad I wasn't the only one who felt that the emotional ending was a bit...unearned?I can't remember if Claire's dad had featured before, but I certainly don't remember him being particularly significant to the plot of the show. Obviously it isn't really necessary to know the character to understand that Claire loved her dad, but it did feel a bit..."here's this character, you should be sympathetic towards him - oh he's dead, you should feel sad now".Still think the episode was great, and the whole series has been really good. I really liked Hollyoaks Man as the nutter Fatboy Slim fan. Hopefully the hour-long episode (tonight, in case anyone missed it) will give them enough time for a proper send-off. Side note: I know that in real life Nicola Coughlan is in her mid-30s so it's fine, but did anyone else feel like the lesbian stuff was a bit weird because Claire is supposed to be about 15-16 (and looks even younger) and the record shop woman seemed to be in her early 20s at a guess?

Quote from: dissolute ocelot on May 20, 2022, 10:24:33 AMWas Halloween really a big thing in Northern Ireland at that time? I'd not heard about that, although I guess it was traditionally bigger in Scotland than England, so it would make sense. Nowadays it's all American Halloween with trick and treating blah blah...
Quote from: Alternative Carpark on May 19, 2022, 07:26:24 PMThey held one on it in Ireland, ie the republic or the 26 counties, on the same day too, because adopting it into law would make it necessary to amend their constitution. Over 94% of the turnout voted in favour.
Quotethings like the confirmation party felt horribly believable

Quote from: curiousoranges on May 20, 2022, 08:12:48 PMFinal episode was a big step up from the others. I wish they had gone for more serious moments in the series, as this tone worked a lot better than the usual zaniness.
Quote from: Utter Shit on May 19, 2022, 09:53:24 AMBit of a tangent but in the aftermath of last night's episode, and still this morning, I've got such an intense, unpleasantly emotional feeling of nostalgia (or more specifically saudade - that makes me sound like a pretentious wanker, but I've had these feelings before and did a bit of research on it that led me to that phrase, which seems to really nail how it feels) and I don't really know why. Obviously the ending laid the emotion on thick, but it feels like something deeper than that. I dunno if I'm tying the end of the show to my own sadness at that happy, innocent, exciting period in my life being over (I was 13 in 1998, so a little younger than them but with the same reference points) but Jesus Christ I'm in bits. I didn't think shows could still do this to me. Not really the right place for this sort of post, but it was a direct result of the episode so it's as good a place as any, I suppose.
