It’s Week 20, again, not a lot of things too watch.
An usual reminder: the article is created as a fun way to share with all of you our favorite moments of the week and to read about yours, maybe even to recommend someone a new show worth watching. And the poll is simply to see how many people out there also liked the same scene as you did. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. THERE ARE NO WINNERS. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
My choices this week are (in the alphabetical order):
Date: April 15, 2013
Actors: David Tennant, Carolyn Pickles, Jonathan Bailey
The Scene: The truth about Sandbrook case
There’s a big chance you’ve never heard about this show, so a little introduction is in order. It’s a crime drama from UK. The series got only 8 episodes in total and is ending tomorrow. It’s basically a story of an investigation into the death of a little boy, set in a small town, with David Tennant playing the lead detective in the case. I have caught up with the show (very) recently and found it very interesting, engaging and generally well done.
The scene I’ve picked is a very important for the show’s main character, DI Hardy, who reveals the truth about his old case when the killer was released free after a DNA evidence was found to have been tampered with. It turns out that Alec Hardy took the blame for this, because the person actually responsible was his wife. And he didn’t want his daughter to know that her mom not only failed to do her job, but also had an affair which was the reason she lost the evidence in the first place. In this moment we get to really see what an honorable man our show’s hero is. And what I absolutely loved the most about the scene is, without a doubt, the performance by David Tennant. He’s easily one of my favorites, such a fantastic actor. And he played this part exactly right, especially the little moment when he’s SO close to breaking down, promising he hasn’t given up on his old case, and then he just pulls himself together quickly. Also, brilliant reactions from his co-stars, playing two reporters listening to his story.
I can’t tell you how great it is to see David Tennant back on my screen!
2. Show: GAME OF THRONES
Episode: “Walk Of Punishment”
Date: April 14, 2013
Actors: Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Aidan Gillen, Charles Dance, Conleth Hill, Julian Glover
The Scene: The Game of Chairs
First of all, it’s just such a hilarious scene! Tyrion is the best. Just the comedy of the situation is enough to call this a great scene, but what I also like about it is how much it reflects everyone’s position and their attitudes towards each other. Lord Tywin Lannister, the most powerful, getting people’s attention and their allegiance. Cersei, like a queen, finding her place next to her mighty father. Then Littlefinger, Varys and Maester Pycelle, fighting to get as close to the power as they can. And then there’s Tyrion. He’s just done, doesn’t want or need his father’s approval and tries to distance himself from this man, but still decides to face him directly.
I know, most of the fans would probably choose Jaime’s scene at the end, but I just freaked out about it a bit (or a lot) and so much prefer this funny one.
3. Show: NIKITA
Episode: “Broken Home”
Date: April 19, 2013
Actors: Dillon Casey, Lyndsy Fonseca
The Scene: Sean’s death
Again, Nikita proves to be not only a great, full of action, twists and new ideas, but offers absolutely shocking turn of events. I just can’t believe Sean’s dead. Honestly, I was thinking it’s gonna be Sonia and was preparing myself for it and this scene left me completely surprised and heartbroken. Just thinking about all the potential this character had and Sean and Alex leaves you speechless. Great job by both the actors. Very emotional performances with the powerful lines. Dillion Casey and his character Sean, will surely be missed!
NOTE: The scene was also picked by Jamie Coudeville and Bradley Adams as Scene Of The Week!
"It wasn't until this moment that I realised how attached I had gotten to Sean. This scene just broke my heart."
“The first time that Nikita has made me cry. So emotional.”
