Watching this one’s been dragging out over months…  What started as a crisp & enthralling drama based on the tale of the purported kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the grandson of tycoon John Paul Getty (Donald Sutherland) turned into a fairly laborious plod through various ransom machinations based in Italy.  It’s based on a true story, and possibly down to a lack of research on my part in knowing that it would be heavily set in Italy…  the thing is, we’ve got loads of stuff we watch that has subtitles: so we consciously sometime go looking for non-subtitled content, because after a hard day at work you don’t want to have to READ.  Anyway… Liz bailed on the last 5 episodes of this, and I only finished it on the strength of the first 3 being great – hoping against hope for a resurgence.  All in all, I don’t know I’d bother – although by all accounts Ridley Scott’s “All The Money In The World” is a better telling of the same story.
