To The Ends Of The Earth (TV Mini-Series 2005)

Filed under i can't help but start laughing every time i think about this movie like seriously this movie i started off taking notes on it as i was watching it to keep myself from liveblogging it but every single bullet point just said OH MY GOD EDMUND WHAT ARE YOU DOING PLEASE STOP like i almost want to read the books to find out what the hell edmund was thinking? only not really because it would kind of take away the magic and probably there is even more puking in the book because i can't imagine putting that much puking in a movie without a very good reason and i mean if you haven't seen this thing let me assure you it is chock full of puking enough puking that it ceases to be gross and becomes hilarious every time this movie makes you think it's about to go serious business edmund pukes i wish i was kidding but alas that is the narrative structure of to the ends of the earth cool story bro or i guess cool tag review bro anyways edmund talbot benedict cumberbatch masterpiece theatre

Whoa. Getting loads of second hand embarrassment from watching To the Ends of the Earth. I’m usually fine with fish-out-of-water stories but something about this one is really making me squirm. I’m only 20 minutes in so I hope this tension alleviates itself soon. Something tells me it won’t. 
Don’t ask my why I’m just now getting to this pillar of the Cumberbatch catalogue. Probably length? (Much the same reason I’m so bad at watching movies.) I think I’m only missing Amazing Grace at this point, as far as substantial roles go. And I guess Dunkirk. Onward!




 #did he think that governess was a prostitute? #soooo awkward


1) Yeah. I think he did. I think he legit thought it was a reasonable to assume that all the women on the boat were prostitutes. I don’t know what to do with you, Edmund.
2) Just wait until part 2, when the secondhand embarrassment is maximized thanks to the thrilling combination of a concussion and the presence of a pretty young woman.
