Clever Betty

Is it me or is Tennant's American voice really high pitched when his RP voice is not particularly so?

So, another BBC adaptation dies a quiet death on American TV.

It's because nobody likes Anna Gunn.

Hulk will smoke you!

Anna Gunn wasn't the problem. The biggest problem was it was billed as a mystery and was really terrible at being that. I would call it a complete failure. Which is a surprise because the British like their mysteries and are typically pretty good at them. In other aspects it was competent.

A minor problem was the dark subject, child murder, that turned my wife off immediately and probably many others.

I marathoned Broadchurch over the summer, but I couldn't watch more than 2 episodes of Gracepoint, though I did just catch up with the finale to see what changed.

I really liked Broadchurch, but it had all the "problems" you stated. This show would probably have been better off on Netflix.

Anna Gunn is always the problem.

Was it everything you thought it would be?

I'm just finishing up Broadchurch, I liked it much better. It's essentially the same story but it just works better than Gracepoint

It's funny...

You were so scary at night.


Broadchurch is good. Anna Gunn is good. Gracepoint sucked.
