Title: Detectorists nominated for BAFTA
Post by: proconsul on April 08, 2015, 11:01:48 AM
The BBC comedy 'Detectorists' has been nominated for a BAFTA in the scripted comedy category. It is up against 'The Wrong Mans', 'Harry & Paul's Story of the Twos' and Sky One's 'Moone Boy'.

Depends  what kind of humour they like I s'pose but in my book Detectorists should  win.

In my opinion "The Detectorists" did not do any thing for me,I thought it was very predictable from start to finish,also it depicted us as lot of eccentric middle aged metal detecting nerdies ,so in that respect not to far off the mark.I was recently told whilst out detecting a field ,that detectorists were a lot of frustrated olds who never made it as archeologist's,and you know, they are probably right,because that's exactly what I wanted to be,but it never happened.

The more I watched the progressive series the more I like it.

Subsequently I purchased the DVD. ;)  Jerry.

But the trick is in how one voices ones opinion, without causing offence.... That's democracy!

For anyone that may have missed the Baftas. The clip of The Detectorists is at the very beginning, so you can then skip to Mackenzie Crook's acceptance speech. His speech is followed by an excerpt from a subsequent interview.
