I think the biggest brainwashing show ever was definitely 24, in virtually every episode Bauer tortures a suspect and completely ignores the law, but its all for the good of the people as he is stopping terrorists and everyone loves him as he gets the job done - presidents call him up when in trouble as society needs guys like him etc etc, it's so blatant that it's hard to watch ( even though I did, every episode, its like looking at a car crash you cant help staring).

Havn't seen Good Cop yet, but I doubt it's as blatant as 24, but sometimes a more subtle brainwashing is more effective

Yeah that was my top example of brainwashing in the post 911 world, after series 2 it just became one stream of 'arabs with bombs' after another, not even trying to be subtle and yes like you said a condoning attitude towards torture.

The character Jack Bauer was quite brilliant though, and those first two series are pretty bloody brilliant.

I couldn't get past the first episode of the 4th season. It just went a bit too far for me.

Dexter is an interesting character who you end up oddly rooting for (like Norman Bates when he sinks that car), but he's never portrayed as the good guy. He knows he's a complete psychopath and he kills... well, people like him. Mostly.
You are supposed to think Norman is trying to help his mother then though aren't you?

Are you? I didn't think that.

For some messed up reason I just wanted him to be able to hide the car in time.

Oh yeah. Haha. I think I just assumed it was Norman Bates all along, or perhaps someone told me.

In all kinds of ways we are down a human cul de sac.

I remember Dixon of Dock Green. Wish we were back in those days.

... and who would ever have thought then what we have come to: we just assumed that the world would go on as it was: decent. I am so lucky to have been a kid in those days, allowed to remain in childhood for as long as nature wished.

I can't remember if I've posted this on this forum already,but the most recent one I have seen was about 2 months ago (not gonna mention the olympics) when I was watching a "Columbo" film. I can't remember the title or even the plot, but this one scene when he goes into an old TV Service shop to collect his fixed TV, once he's inside the shop all I could see on the left hand side of the screen was the Word
VICE from SERVICE and below it were the numbers
666 which were part of the Telephone number
I actually laughed at how much must go on without conscious notice, and the Columbo film was made quite a time ago, I also noticed how many of these films he/Peter Faulk actually directs, quite a lot, I haven't done a search. That's that.

Oh right...let's pick on Columbo...and Peter Faulk doesn't direct at all, as he's dead, so you're safe...the evil mastermind is deceased.

Bloody good character actor...good program too...your example would be interesting if it wasn't so tenuous.

I thought he was dead, I could probably find what the name of the movie was if I looked over TV listings from about 3 months ago, it was on a Saturday on ITV in the afternoon, I was just looking for my mobile phone as I sometimes take pics of stuff on my 50" plasma and others think they are real, but that's another story. I think if you check you will find that he did direct some of his later movies. I like Columbo.

In the stunningly brilliant film, Pulp Fiction, Mia Wallace did a pilot TV show called 'Fox Force Five' the three F's, correlate to that number and it is also Marcellus Wallace's gold filled briefcase combination

Tarantino is evil! Eviiiiiiil!



I love his films

Yeah I know he did, but by then he was probably the longest standing member of the production staff and was the logical choice.

What days? The good old friendly copper days. I've vague sad memories of dixon and his simplistic ramblings of a land that is forever Britain.
