Hey i wasn't joking, it aired on TV, it's a mini-series right? cuz here on TV.COM it's written that the show is On Hiatus/TBD, just don't tell me it's gonna be back in a furious comeback cuz it sucked!!!
First of all, we're talking about a british series so there's people (like me) who hate the british cinema and TV-shows, all the damn accents in the movies, the annoying unoriginal stuff and of course the british (with the accents!!) idies for show such as THE OFFICE who was though as genius (i really prefer the US Office), so if you like me, change the channel right away, but i gave BLACKPOOL a chance, i was wrong, so we're going next, it's a drama set in BLACKPOOL, the Las Vegas of the UK, where Ripley Holden (David Morissey, i think it's his name) is a casino owner, one day a body is found at the casino, something that makes the business bad for him and a lot of cops and detectives snooping around his place when Ripley is the first suspect in their minds, well at least there's really funny parts, let's call it guilty pleasure cuz it's the kind of black comedy, the kind of dark humor, so we're going next and fast enough our Vegas crime-drama becomes a musical comedy, yes all the people began to sing, it's like watching a hong-kong martial arts movie when suddenly Jackie Chan will start singing, that's crazy! so i hate musicals too, they're just annoying, bunch of people singing (and most of the time they're trying to put up a good show with a cool screenplay in, but the singing just ruins it all!), so that's it, one episode one enough! if you will see that change the channel QUICK!!! and if this show is gonna be back, i'm gonna stab myself, seriosuly!
AVOID THAT SHOW!!!
