 Furuhata Ninsaburo Finale  劇 名﹕古佃任三郎系列完結2006

劇 情﹕由田村正和(62)主演的人氣電視劇《古畑任三郎》(富士電視台)的最终作品,已在今年一月份連續3晚播映完畢。從1994年開始,連續劇、特别劇都獲得了高收視率的這部推理名作終於將畫上句點。最候的特别演出嘉賓是由松嶋菜々子領軍的超豪華陣容。第一晚的特别嘉賓是石坂浩二(64)和藤原竜也(23)。第二晚的特别嘉賓則是這一次參與電視劇演出的全壘打王鈴木一朗。松嶋菜々子則是在第三晚出場,定位是“使用不可思議方法殺人的女性”。當聽到自己被選為女性高智商犯人的演員,一直很少演出壞人角色的松嶋菜々子很愉快地便答應了。

而初次挑戰電視劇演出的鈴木一朗,除了吸引了大批球迷的密切關注外。鈴木一朗也說自己一直是《古畑任三郎》的影迷,不僅是非常喜歡劇情,更對其中的著名橋段和場景都十分熟悉,「聽到自己被邀請演出時簡直像是做夢一樣!」。製片石原隆說:「早就聽說鈴木一朗先生是看過所有系列的忠實影迷,而鈴木一朗先生能這麼爽快地答應演出,我感到非常高興。」鈴木一朗演出的就是他本人“馬里拿兹一朗”。過去曾以真名演出的也只有SMAP,這次的設定為是一個以發出完美殺人犯罪預告作為向古畑挑釁的犯人。

《古畑任三郎》是由劇作家三谷幸喜創作的“日本版刑警柯倫坡”。與一般的推理劇不同,都是由犯人(特别嘉賓)首先登場。而田村飾演的古畑刑警則用超强的洞察力和巧妙的語言讓犯人破綻百出,自取滅亡。

提到本系列的完结,製作人,共同電視台的關口靜夫說道:「本來是將2年前松本幸四郎的那一集作為最後一集的,但是不段有粉絲要求繼續拍下去呢。三谷說既然大家都這麼想『那我就再試著寫寫看』,因此才有了這次的三集作品。」

不論是嘉賓,還是製作人員都表示:「這是三谷老師、田村老師,回應古畑粉絲的熱情期盼而製作的最終劇集。一定會不輸給過去作品和演員陣容,會獻出最好的詭計給大家。請觀眾好好的享受這三晚的精彩演出。」

 Hyouheki 劇 名﹕冰壁


劇 情﹕奧寺(玉木宏飾)被好友北(山本太郎飾)邀請,一起挑戰「K2」。而登山用具公司社長八代(石浩二飾)和兒子智之(武田真治飾),則全力支持北這次挑戰行動,目標是8000公尺高的山峰。當二人攀爬近頂峰一處有70公尺高的垂直冰壁時,突然發生了雪崩…
 「攀冰」是一項需要高度技術和體能的運動,超過60度的冰坡需要依賴完善的攀爬工具。而「冰壁」則是指垂直90度的冰面。攀爬冰壁更需要無比勇氣和複雜的技術,而且異常危險,稍一不慎,就垂直掉下萬丈深淵。
 《冰壁》是日本作家井上靖於1956年發表的作品,稱為現代「山岳小說」登峰傑作。取材於1955年發生在日本前穗高山的一樁遇難事件。雖然當時的登山用具供應商實驗証明,爬山繩足以承受一噸重的力量。但是在井上靖採訪了同行的生還者,發現如果爬山繩在90度的尖岩角,其實可以很容易被切斷。而且該處發生了三次同樣的爬山繩切斷事故,令井上靖覺得,事故並非如供應商所說的那樣,於是創作了這本小說,以小說的方式揭露了事件的真相。
 此次將發生事故時間改為2005年,地點則改為喜馬拉雅山,世界第2高峰,有「山中之山」之稱的「K2」。事故原因則由爬山繩,改為登山鐵環的構造問題。外景拍攝則遠赴阿爾卑斯山脈實地拍攝,企圖創造出喜馬拉雅山K2的氣勢,而玉木宏和山本太郎也將在冰天雪地下親身上陣,在要用直昇機才能到達的山崖上拍攝。

 Kemonomichi  劇 名﹕野獸之道


劇 情﹕本劇改編自著名推理大師松本清張的又一本小說《野獸之路》,該小說於1964年正式發行,截今為止熱賣117萬冊,是松本推理系列中極有影響力的代表佳作。該小說曾於1965年搬上大螢幕,由當時的名角池內淳子領銜主演。1982年NHK再次將小說螢屏化,並請出名取裕子擔綱頭牌。這次朝日電視臺再度翻拍名作,效果如何很受矚目。 近兩年來,松本清張的作品越來越受到電視製作人的親睞。之前《砂之器》和《黑皮記事本》以電視劇的形式與觀眾見面均大獲成功。不僅收視率大收旺盤,連日劇奧斯卡也額外垂青,這也是松本清張作品一而再再而三的被搬上小螢屏的主要原因。松本清張的小說多以財政界為背景,這也使得他的作品在推理小說之外衍生出社會批判現實主義色彩,被譽為一代社會派推理宗師。

    在本劇中米倉涼子飾演的女主角成澤民子是一名不安於現狀的有夫之婦。家境艱難的她在一家旅館擔任女招待,同時還要照顧行動不便的丈夫。儘管出身草根,民子對於榮華富貴卻有著強烈的欲望和野心。某日一個叫小瀧的男子闖入了民子的生活,在小瀧的教唆之下,民子放火燒死了自己的丈夫,並在小瀧的引見之下攀上財政界的要員,在這個利慾薰心的世界裏,民子開始了她的野獸之途。
