More phone viewing

I really do watch too much tv…

Here are a couple from the classic ‘Twin Peaks’ :

A recent show set back in the 1960s – ‘11.22.63‘. Here we see the phone box seconds before it gets demolished in a car crash…

And yet another from ‘Person of Interest’ . This show has been great in presenting new ways to use the phone. This one gets bricked up behind a wall and still manages to work years later…

Mojave Phone Booth


I listen to a podcast called ‘99% Invisible’. It’s an American series I have been onto for a couple of years – although I only listen in spasmodically.  Podcast no. 202 is title ‘Mojave Phone Booth’ . Cool.

It has led me to a movie I didn’t know about ‘Mojave Phone Booth’ (2006) and the Wikipedia page on the artefact itself – you guessed it, a phone box in the Mojave desert.

This goes a long way to proving that I am not alone in my fascination for phone boxes.


Fargo 2

The second Fargo TV series (wonderful) showed us a few phone shots and one box in particular got a lot of use:

I don’t actually know this programme but couldn’t ignore the ad, for obvious reasons;

Better call saul

This shot is from the penultimate episode of ‘Humans‘:

From the recent adaptation of  Jekyl and Hyde:

The iconic red box even turns up on a US highway in ‘Austin Powers: the spy who shagged me’.

Man in the High Castle again

Finally the second episode of this fabulous programme has appeared on my Amazon watchlist. In an earlier blog I posted a shot of a bubble covered phone but in this scene it’s something more traditional:

Holiday viewing

We finished off the 2nd series of Extant on holiday in Cyprus. There was a scene with a decrepit phone box that was part of a high tech security system:

Post-apocalyptic phone box

Even after the zombie hoards have taken over the phone box continues to be relevant – as seen in this episode of Z Nation

Here  I like the use of the phone to reflect the woman making the call
