Series 2

Ok, time for a topic about series 2.
I have noticed that many people choose it over series 1. I thought that too at first, but I'm severely doubting it now. Both series are fantastic in any possible way :grin:
So let me know your thoughts, comments etc about series 2!

Re: Series 2

Good idea! I've come to appreciate series 2 more than I did after the first time I'd watched it, even though it is somehow less realistic, there's more humour involved. (for ex. the fantasy painting and the feminine sort of boot camp, haha) I think the result was a good sequel, even though I do still prefer the first series.

Re: Series 2

I'm re-watching series 2 now, I'm halfway at the moment. I forgot a lot of what happened in series 2, and it's great to see it again.
Every time I watch this series, I'm yet again amazed by Joanna's acting. It's just so amazing, so realistic. Her character is so sensitive and vulnerable, and she just portrays it brilliantly.
And I'm sorry to bring this up again, but how is Kim Cattrall ever going to get anywhere near this brilliance of acting? I'm fairly sure it's not going to happen. She just doesn't have it in her.

Re: Series 2

Series 2 is really good indeed, and although I must admit that Ireally like Kim Catrall (she's a great actress) she's no Joanna, partly because I'm convinced that Davina is actually based on her. Anyway - there's nothing on IMDB.com about this remake, so it might have been all rumours, but I'll keep checking.

Re: Series 2

About halfway through series two. Can't get over how mind-blowingly good this show is. If it were a person, I would want to have its children.

That's the most brilliant description I've ever read :lmao:

Let's just hope it's more fertile than Orlando eh? :lol:

Re: Series 2

Finished series 2 last night. Kept prolonging watching the last episode because I didn't want the series to end. Felt a mix of awe and frustration while watching it; awe in its brilliance and frustration that I hadn't written it.

Heard they're in talks for series 3. Can't wait.

Are they!? That would be so much better than an American remake, although I haven't read anything about plans for a third series yet... Do you remember where you've heard that?

Re: Series 2

Seriously???? Where have you heard that?? If you can show me an article or anything about it I'll love you forever!!!

I'd heard that it would end after series 2 though, and that there would never be a 3rd one..

It would be amazing though :grin:

Re: Series 2

All I've read is on Hugo Blick's IMDB page.
Sensitive Skin is In Development. Perhaps I misunderstood the in development of series 3 for the American version. Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Series 2

Hm, it seems that there is some kind of 'preliminary cast', that you can only view if you've got an 'IMDB pro' account. (which I haven't...) There's nothing on Joanna's page though, which I'm not too happy about, as that might mean that there indeed is going to be an American remake...

Of course we are! She's played by Joanna, remember? :wink:

But yes, I wish they'd release the second series over here too. The first series has been in stores for quite while (thank god I bought it) but I can't seem to find it anywhere any longer.

Re: Series 2

My dvd arrived yesterday! :hyper:
I'm so happy that I've got all episodes now. I watched episode one last night, and just fell in love with the show all over again. It's just amazing.
And I had to laugh so hard at the painting, everyone's reaction to it has me in stitches every time :lmao:

Haha oh yes, the painting.... It's really hideous, but the scene just gets me every time. I think we can definitely say the disgusted look on Joanna's face wasn't acted at all, haha.

Yes it's definitely a brilliant episode to start the new series with :lmao:
