Ergh, I know it's all fiction, but it does drive me bonkers when people don't do simple research, especially someone so persnickety as Fry seems to be. No corporals in the Army either except for small areas, they have "specialists" and hearing about uniforms being totally wrong is strange too. I was at Lakenheath a few years back and though it wasn't exactly Beverly Hills it did have modern buildings!
I know it's just a TV show but it comes out in Region 1 and anyone here will laugh like mad if they see an "Air Force corporal" and basic things are totally wrong. Maybe I as a Yank am a bit sensitive but we really get thrashed too much from overseas so you'll have to pardon us! Plus I work on an Army post and am one of those continuity freaks; it'd be like us making a program set in modern day Britain and mentioning the "King" of England!
(That and my da** prescriptions ran out early. Grouch Alert!).
Now back to your regularly scheduled program, er, programme...and Fry does look pretty cute with the thumb action.
Someone sent me that Radio Times issue from a few weeks back.

These are the eyes I´d be looking for You are the best "eye finder" ever, Fryphile! Remember when you found "these eyes" for me?

Hello all.

Now I am a massive SF fan obviously. But can anyone help me because I think I am going mad. I just watched Episode 3 of Series 2 of Kingdom. And either I put two spoonfuls of LSD in my tea instead of sugar earlier or it was one of the worst written, worst researched, worst edited, worst directed pieces of television I have ever seen.

I honestly didn't know what was going on to the extent that I had to stop the program and have a lie down. I thought I might be ill. I have loved Kingdom and was settling in for another lovely episode when out of the blue came this confused mess. I thought I was just tired. But when I checked back again (I watched it on ITV Play) it was still the same.

All the plots and storylines were ripped apart, new storylines were randomly spliced in here and there, the story lines didn't make sense (why for example would Lyle, having found loads of money that clearly belonged to the Kingdoms firstly decide to hide it from them (i.e. steal it from them - his character would never had done that) then decide to blow the whole lot on Peter's brother's bail - £100,000!!! - when it is clear to everyone that the best thing to do is let him go into remand), no one scene lasted more than about 20 seconds so that it became quite painful to watch. It was like a Stephen Fry nightmare. The thing was that most scenes were well acted (as always) which made the whole experience frankly more bizarre.

It was like the script editors and writers had gone on holiday and left the half written frist draft to the electricians junior assistant to finish off (no offence intended to electricians, I doubt that many script editors could wire a television studio).

So please, please, can you tell me, am I going nuts?

Is it just me???

I think Lyle's actions were motivated by his interest to both protect the partnership's reputation and help secure his place in the practice. It was in Simon's bag, so he hid it from Simon - I think if he had the chance to have a long talk with Peter, he would have let Peter in on the secret. At that point, he didn't know where the money came from - just that it came from Simon who was known to be a bit on the shady side of things. (I basically just viewed it as a prime opportunity for Lyle to "prove himself" to Peter and his family.)

I'm not sure there was any definite "Simon needs to remain in prison" notion, Peter was very conflicted about it as I recall and his first response/concern was how he would be able to legitimately obtain the required money, not that Simon deserved to stay in prison. (I would think that if Peter felt Simon should stay in prison, that would have been the first thing out of his mouth rather than discussing the financial aspect of it.)
