Gonna see if there's a download of it.

It was not very good apart from the title music. From Clanned.

Well you were aware of the show, but my point, which by the way was just a humorous quip really, is that a Clannád track is pretty much immediately recognisable to anyone who has ever heard any other Clannád track.

:shock:

Maybe, but the TV tune has become darker and more haunting in my head over years 'til I was left with just the "Robin. The Hooded Man." followed by dum-dum. I couldn't believe how twee and prancy it was when I re-heard it. Was expecting something closer to Opeth.

How can you say that?! The theme from Harry's Game is completely different to the theme from Robin of Sherwood.



No similarity at all.

It’s really not. The instrumentation, and then both the trademark ‘chorus-heavy’ arrangement and male-with-a-dash-of-female harmonies are there. Newgrange, the same thing - a chorus made up of 5-1 male- female harmonies repeated over and over. Plus her voice is one of THE most recognisable voices in ‘pop’.

Mmm, I kind of want to watch Harry's Game now. Now, what's a non-dodgy service I can use to watch this online? I see Amazon have a DVD version. I doubt Apple would sell it. I'm guessing it's not on Netflix. I'm prepared to pay.

Historically bad at working out whether you are being sarcastic or serious. As a top level sarcastic person myself, this dangerously harms my sense of self.

What a completely distasteful thing for you to say. Pretty much all of us on this forum live in the first world, and having 4k is not the indicator. I mean, crap, I'm a little bit lost for words at that stupid remark. You really have no clue just how privileged you are, do you.

.... :nono: your pettiness gets tiresome.


Actually, it's your habit of posting every fart that falls out of your brain which is tiresome. How many people do you think actually want to know that you are laboriously making your way through all the Bond films one by one, followed by all the Marvel films one by one? How many people do you think actually care that you watch animal programmes in 4K? Keep that crap to the thread that you purposely created to brag about having it.

Do you actually have something to contribute ....??? of course not .....just puerile sniping per usual :coffee:


Once again, you have got yourself confused about the difference between posting every so often about a show I'm watching, sometimes pointing out that you drone on ad infinitum about the same old shit, and not contributing. Get with reality, would you?
