WATCH BUNKERS BRUTALISM AND BLOODYMINDEDNESS

Spall makes a brilliant and utterly convincing crumbling aristocrat. Meades is not demonstrative with his crossness; it’s hidden behind his deadpan inscrutability and his permanent sunnies. Show 25 25 50 All. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. Meades is cross with the people who say buildings should be pretty, reassuring, unthreatening. He is, as Clarence says, an appalling man, bellowing about like a mastodon with a hernia. We don’t expect paintings or novels or films to be pretty well, some people do actually, Jonathan, but they’re not worth worrying about ; why should buildings be?

In this first part of two , he is looking at brutalism’s foundations — the martial structures of the war, modern gothic before, further back still to the prison etchings of Piranesi and the charmlessness of John Vanbrugh. And not just a creeping pustule but a poor creeping pustule, “an imbecile who looks at my ward and says to himself: Here he is, in this second series opener, soliloquising away to his beloved pig. Meades is not demonstrative with his crossness; it’s hidden behind his deadpan inscrutability and his permanent sunnies. Or Roderick, or Clarence. Of course it is:

Spall makes a brilliant and utterly convincing crumbling aristocrat. That’s me, not giggling like a ruddy female, but laughing like a man, to indicate something is amusing, obviously. And then the real Sir Roderick Glossop arrives. It’s all about the words. Loading comments… Trouble loading?

And he’s cross with focus groups, the consensus, and oafish elected representatives who are responsible for the “new” housing developments that look with feeble nostalgia to the past and that have popped out like skin disease around the outskirts of virtually every town in the country. He gets enraged, especially by whistling and anything to do with Scotland it’s not really working out between him and Angus McAllister, the whistling Scots gardenerand he smashes things.

The two of them — Clarence and the Empress — get harder and harder to tell apart, don’t you think? Or Roderick, or Clarence. Meades is not demonstrative with his crossness; it’s hidden behind his deadpan inscrutability and his permanent sunnies.

Blandings; Bunkers, Brutalism and Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry – TV review

Meades is cross with the people who say buildings should be pretty, reassuring, unthreatening. And not just a creeping pustule but a poor creeping pustule, “an imbecile who looks at my ward and says to himself: In this first part of twohe is looking at brutalism’s foundations — the martial structures of the war, modern gothic before, further back still to the prison etchings of Piranesi and the charmlessness of John Vanbrugh. Show 25 25 50 All. And it’s not brutalis, negative, withering and cross; it’s also a beautiful paean to concrete and scale and ambition, to architecture as art.

Bunkers, Brutalism and Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry with Jonathan Meades

But it’s all there, the withering disdain, in the words. Of course it is: Topics Drama TV review. It also makes you listen.

The Duke of Dunstable — Harry Enfield, magnificent wtch full sail — is staying at Blandings Castle, and that’s a problem. We don’t expect paintings or novels or films to be pretty well, some people do actually, Jonathan, but they’re not worth worrying about ; why should buildings be? We’re pondering boys’ names a bit in my own castle, as it happens, and I’m thinking both Bukners and Pongo would work very nicely.

At a time when presenters are throwing themselves around more and more ridiculously, waving their arms in the air, marching towards you, waltzing with the bloody camera, it’s such a refreshing bloodymindedneas.

Order by newest oldest recommendations. All worries allayed, he has successfully stumbled up the social hierarchy. Linda’s wwatch to hide from her uncle behind an alpaca is unsuccessful, the duke gets crosser and crosser, especially when he hears The Bonnie Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond being whistled outside his window, and it all ends with a mass egging. Befuddled and bumbling, sure, but is Spall toff enough, I wondered?

Toot toot, here nunkers Freddie Threepwood Jack Farthing, who, despite being surrounded by funny people being funny, stole the entire first series with his hilariousness, and shows no sign of letting up here.

Nightmares are more captivating than sweet dreams, more memorable. It’s also crisp and sharp, with lovely performances all over the shop.

He is, as Clarence says, an appalling man, bellowing about like a mastodon with a hernia.

Episode 1 ‹ Bunkers, Brutalism and Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry with Jonathan Meades

Here he is, in this second series opener, soliloquising away to his beloved pig. A delightful piece of comic frippery that keeps well within the parameters of PGW’s spirit. Actually, I would like to see Meades swinging on a giant wrecking ball, naked obviously, bashing down Barratt developments, but I don’t think that’s his style. Freddie hatches a plan, which involves Pongo the pustule impersonating Sir Roderick Glossop, the loony doctor everyone is attempting to have everyone else committed to the funny farm.

Lots more of that to come in the second part, I imagine. The duke is also furious that his niece Linda has fallen in love with a creeping pustule called Pongo Twistleton.

Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. I also find myself agreeing with just about all of them — the words — even though some OK, quite a lot I have to look up in the dictionary.

The plan, though well intentioned love is behind itdoesn’t go smoothly, perhaps not so surprisingly.
