Britannia

Post your views about what's on the telly-box (not about transvestites, unless it is a programme about transvestism, and even that is borderline unless there are also ladyboys).

Did any of you watch Britannia?
It certainly opened my eyes.
Who was doing more drugs you think, the characters or the writers?
I usually don't mind a bit of weirdness but WTF? :shock:

No fans? Not one for the button counters I suppose.
For me it lost a lot of it's appeal when I felt the military subplot was eclipsed by the whole Chosen One subplot.

It was sort of like like watching a stoner porno version of the old Roar series, surreal.

I was interested in learning what people thought of this less than respectful portrayal of Britain's legendary past though.
Especially the sex and drug mad druids lead by Skeletor and the crazy old queen who kept ranting about her bollocks. :lol:

I think I remember this crossing the horizon about a year ago? Missed it completely - mainly because of failure to exert my masculine role as pater familias and wrench the tv controller from my wife/daughter/son watching boring reality/game shows/football and various PS4 games.

Looks interesting-ish but I probably need a bottle of robust red inside me before I would stop whining about misrepresentations of British culture/Roman dress and the use of anachronistic fucking Germanic runes in the blurb.

Not sure I'm going to pay 1.99 per episode to You Tube for an excuse to drink unoaked Cotes du Rhone to excess (I've gone right off heavily oaked wines- sorry Oz).
But I'm open to persuasion. :D

You'd be dead of alcohol poisoning by the end of the opening credits.

In fact here's the main title sequence, I think it speaks for itself:

P.S. if you ever come across a hurdy-gurdy man please give him a kick in the knackers from me.

Acceptable? I suppose I could block my ears, "gurd" my loins and lie back and think of Britannia.

(Ha! See what I did there? And you thought I'd make some vulgar and obvious joke about her grinding my organ didn't you? But I got class me. :P)

'Course you do.

Me too -- which is why I didn't make play with changing "kick in the knackers" to "kiss in the knickers".

Frothers: classy all the way. :D
