Re: TPB special on Showcase March 5, "Hearts of Dartmouth"

Ha, just occurred to me.  A play on words, Joseph Conrad’s book “Heart of Darkness” – “Hearts of Dartmouth”.  That book was the inspiration for the movie “Apocalypse Now”.

“The horror.  The horror.”


Is also a "Take-off" of the Documentry Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse   about the making of Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now".

Oh man , that was a really great documentary!!! What a crazy scene that was when they filmed Apocalypse Now!

My wife got the association the first time she heard it. Another indication of the excellent minds behind this show.

Yeah thanks for the link GD.  Anne Marie, Clattenburg's wife, talks about the documentary in the article posted in this thread, she mentions the tie-in to Hearts of Darkness...

What a great article . I love the implications of this excerpt :

"I wanted to offer up something that true fans don’t know, haven’t experienced, haven’t seen because I’m sure they must be thirsting for some other knowledge about the show. And the boys don’t appear out of character. That’s a conceit that they’ve developed and it’s a myth that we just thought we’d continue on with," Cassidy said.

I can't wait!!!!

Ya, Saucy you have a point. We have been looking for more, haven't we? I think this could be quite interesting. I'm removing my past post on this topic! ;)

So far very interesting special.  Lots of tidbits on how the show came to be.  More to come...

Pretty good, not what I expected, it could have had some interviews with the characters, maybe the next one.

It was really a great show, really enjoyed seeing never-before-seen footage from behind the scenes. I actually enjoyed it. Would've been a bit better had they spoken to some of the cast for their points of view, but all in all, pretty cool.

Also keep an eye on:

http://www2.digitaldistractions.org:8080/

They have posted all of the seasons including the movie and X-mas episode, so I don't see any reason why it won't show up on there.

P.S. By the way Canuckguy, it runs over the 1 hour mark about 2 minutes .

I love behind the scenes shows, & this one was great! It didn't even matter to me that the characters weren't interviewed, I'm glad the focus was on the people behind the existence for the show. I'm glad Showcase took a risk on this show!

yah Ill just record it in 2 hour mode its pretty good quality

Hearts Of Dartmouth was fan-fackin-tastic! AnneMarie Clattenberg can be justly proud of a job well done! So they pitched it to The Comedy Network first, bet those idiots have spent a lot of time kicking themselves! The tone of the ending lends credence to the recent suggestion that TPB's days are numbered - six solid seasons and a feature length movie are already great accomplishments.

Arg I fell asleep and didnt record it.  Hopefully it shows up on the web or they repeat it.

bigbenjamin

I'm sure it will be repeating to pad out the Showcase schedule, nomesaaaaaayin? I taped it on two machines, just in case one fucked up . .also somebody will put a copy on Limewire or SoulSearch or some such soon. btw - why didn't you watch it? Watchin the Oscars or reorganizing your porn files?

I gotta get in shape. Too much sitting has ruined my body. Too much abuse has gone on for too long. From now on there will be 50 pushups each morning, 50 pullups. There will be no more pills, no more bad food, no more destroyers of my body. From now on will be total organization. Every muscle must be tight cheers!
