Anyone watch this on Channel 4 last week?
s'posed to be quite good.
I'm watching it right now!
it could not have been more obvious that it was written entirely by a white middle-class middle-aged man. it seemed he based the entirety of it on what he'd read in the papers. obvious, banal commentary; just talking points regurgitated with no real insight or imagination involved. im sure it will provoke lots of ignorant debates about "multiculturalism" amongst people who dont really know what they're talking about though, whoopee
not to mention the narrative and pacing was all over the shop
I only saw the trailer and it looked silly. Yer fella talking about how being born here was "A DEBT OF HONOUR" made me laugh cus
A/ of course it isn't, and
B/ he sounds like a Klingon or something. In fact, that's what I always hear when white writers have Asian characters - really archaic and oddly phrased things that just sound like Worf thanking Piccard for saving his life.
