Pistol ( Danny Boyle Sex Pistols mini series)

2 episodes in, still not sure about it. The guy who plays Malcolm McLaren is v good, probably because there's an actual character to get his teeth into and act like an arse, "Chrissie Hynde" "Jordan", and are also interesting, again as they have some character, the rest are all a bit "meh" which is maybe the point, but as it's Steve Jones' story it makes part of it a bit dull :(

"Lydon" hasn't been in it much but he seems pretty good, like McLaren probably cos he can ham it up like he's in pantomime ;)

It's interesting to watch, as like Winning Time, a lot of time and effort has gone into making it look like it's the 70s, rather than just being set in the 70s if that makes sense?

episode 3 is better, probably because it has more of a story,  it has a "I may destroy you" sort of tone to it, and is about
SPOILER:

the song Bodies which I never knew was inspired by a real person ! :(
