TV Round-Up

I never saw this coming, but DeepAtSea was on top of it: full frontal nudity from Marisa Vitali in the season premiere of Bored to Death.

In this case, I'm glad to have a pretext to watch the series - Galifianakis, Schwartzman, Danson and frontal nudity as well - too good to be true.

Here are the ID's for the women on Sunday's Homeland: the topless blonde being interviewed is Melissa Benoist. The very brief Brianna Brown scene was apparently performed by a body double. Here are some new clips from Deep at Sea.




  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.


Catch the deluxe version of Other Crap in real time, with all the bells and whistles, here.




Scoop's note: I screwed up and failed to load Aesthete's latest. He will return tomorrow with more 1920x1080 clips!






Hoodwink is a crime drama about a slippery armed robber Martin Stang (John Hargreaves) who is on the run from the cops, but is tracked down to his long suffering girlfriend Lucy's (Wendy Hughes) house. Arrested, he convinces the cops to take him to see his father, whereupon he gets a gun and escapes. He meets Marion (Kim Deacon) and holes up with her until he is arrested again. In jail, he hatches a plan to get himself out: he fakes being blind. Although there is some skepticism from the guards, he manages to get certain privileges including being allowed out of prison for a few hours once a week under the guardianship of a local preacher (Dennis Miller) and his wife (Judy Davis). During this time, he falls for the preacher's wife.

Baffling mess of a film that starts as a sort of caper film and bizarrely turns into a somber romantic drama. Hoodwink screams of having major problems during production, apparently it went through 4 top notch directors before settling on British TV director Claude Whatham, who seems to have pissed off everyone. And it shows. The sudden change of mood is quite disarming and doesn't make a lot of sense and while the film showed some promise as a caper, as a drama, it is severely undercooked and utterly pointless. John Hargreaves is excellent in the lead and has to carry the whole film, but even he can't save the film from itself. Bah!

The nudity in this film is fairly gratuitous which is quite surprising, especially Kim Deacon's scene. But then, maybe it isn't surprising in this mess of a film. Funnily enough, both Wendy and Kim are naked in A Dangerous Summer, which was released the next year. Must get around to that soon...
