I've never watched Broadchurch, but I watched Gracepoint when it aired on Fox. I guess it had a different killer than Broadchurch S1. By most accounts that watched both versions, it was worse than the British show.
I don't understand remaking shows that are already in English. It's one thing if they take the premise and then do their own thing, but as I understand it if follows the original pretty closely.
Anyway, was able to see Force Awakens a day early so that's a burden lifted that I don't have to avoid spoilers anymore. It was good, though it didn't knock my socks off like it seems to have done to so many others. I suppose the electricity caused by an opening night crowd enhances the experience.
They played the Independence Day 2 trailer before it, and even though I watched it several times already that speech gets me every time.
