  1. O.K. it was a great start. I think by not having a theme they have avoided a key conundrum, do you use the epic GoT theme which in my house elicited the response of stopping conversations and putting phones down, much like those videos of dogs howling to the EastEnders theme of years ago, in which case you are rehashing or lazy, or do you go for a fanbase dividing new theme? clever sausages got around that one didnt they!

     

    But i have a key question, this is set almost 180 years before GoT, this will be then at least 140 years before Tywin Lannister took control of House Lannister, before he killed off House Reyne. This means the song the rains of castamere has not yet been written, that leaves only one piece of music left in Westeros, the bear and the maiden fair. Will we hear any other music/songs sung by the commonfolk? 

  2. just watched the new movie. The animation was so off-puttingly bad anything that wasn't the two main characters looked like it was crudely knocked up in mspaint, or a bad youtube fan cartoon.

     

    it totally lacked the soul of the first movie, even the cornholio scene failed to raise a laugh, and i absolutely loved these two.

  3. Well I did the challenge and the results were fantastic. I'm claiming beginners luck as at first the temps wouldn't stop hitting 160, then we had a lull down at 119, but at around 5:30am (started at 4) they stabilized at 140ish for the rest of the cook. Took it off the grill at 11:30 and into the cooler wrapped in foil and towels. Served it 3 hours late.

     

    Next time, I'll take photos

    Russ Abbot was several leagues below Cannon & Ball. When Cannon & Ball were on I'm A Celebrity they seemed like proper nice blokes. 

    One act I could never understand was the Krankies - they seemed to get on kids TV all the time. No idea why. 

     

    Ian Krankee, now there was celeb who had his head screwed on. While the rest of 80's tv celebs were conkers deep in cubscouts and thinking nothing would ever happen he thought "hang about, I have urges towards kids, but how about, instead of ruining their lives, I just find myself a wee lady willing to dress up as a schoolboy?"

     

    Their act probably got so much tv time because they were notorious swingers and probably had a lot of dirt on a lot of people

    My best brisket to date. The point is being saved, the pictures are of the flat. It's very moist in the middle, the edges are a bit dry but that's to be expected with a 17 hour cook.

     

    I'm going to try the point a bit later.

     

    That looks Amazing! I'm going for my first brisket cook in a couple of weeks, i'm following this chap's method for a 7 hour cook https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbcD273D2CM

     

    what did you serve alongside it?

    Bad Traveling was pretty great, although I really wanted to know more about that world more than I was interested in the story actually being told.

     

     

     

    Neal Asher wrote that episode, I was almost left wondering if that was set in the Polity universe as that crab was pretty much how I imagine the Prador to look.

    Anyone up for another spin off? Star Trek:Rios.  He chooses to stay behind and have a family dynamic with Theresa and her kid. 

     

    only if its like some kind of "who's the boss" sitcom with comedy shenanigans of hiding bits of 24th century technology from nosey neighbours

     

     

  8. I really enjoyed it, it felt like there was next to no gap between the seasons, and nobody had inexplicable chunked out between them (think miguel from cobra kai)

     

    Really good gritty action, i know there are rumors of a fifth season but i wonder where they will go. i may have to rewatch it all again.

  9. I hate watched the latest episode during lunch

     

    Spoiler

    seriously, you tempt me in with some form of super advanced race, you use the word boronite which to me means they are using Omega.

     

    you tempt me in with a mission to excavate a dead planet for info about the origins of a mysterious advanced race. i love this shit.

     

    and you give me a councilor Troi episode about emotions.

     

    it's like the script is being written as a contest on an episode of the apprentice.

     

    she's going to fucking cry them into submission in the session finale isn't she?

     

    edit: I reckon they are going to do the next bit to spite me. for years, one encounter in Star Trek left me clamouring for more info, I was fascinated, enthralled, my imagination had run wild on it for years. The whale probe. species 10-c are going to be the whale aliens and she's going to smug face cry them into submission isn't she?

     

  10. Didn't ST stand for Sam Tramiel?

     

    I remember adding a 512Kb upgrade to my STFM, turns out I had the difficult to upgrade one, which required asking for a different cable from the supplier. The tech support was great...

     

    "Hi, I ordered this upgrade kit from you, but it turns out I have this model so will need the cable specific for that motherboard"

    "Can you solder?"

    "Pardon?"

    "Can you solder, you only need to connect 7 wires to the following pins on the chip on the mainboard"

    "I'm 15, my dad is not going to let me take a soldering iron to the family computer"

    "it's really easy if you can solder"

    "I'm 15, can I just have the cable that your manual says to ask for if you have the model that I have?"

    "Sure, you don't want to try soldering?"

    I think Nick should've gone too, he's totally devoid of personality.

     

    i think when he pm'd the drink task and his on point branding sold a shit product it resonated with siralun and that saved him. I think he's trying to play the role of this lot are all morons and beneath me, but needs to join in a bit more, as only Karen gets to play that role.

  12. I would love to see the background challenges faced by third parties who have to work with the apprentice candidates

     

    "great news team! We're going to be on TV!"

    "awesome!"

    "on The Apprentice"

    "uhhhhh"

    "right, so we need a poker competition to find out which two employees have the best poker face, remember, you will be face to face with morons who think they're geniuses, if you cringe when they tell you they actually believe the earth is flat and mars bars come from mars you will fuck the show up. Pete, you are out, you're a massive grammar nazi and will give the game away. Also we have I.t. coming in to disable all spelling and grammar checks on the studio systems this week so double check any content made in there."

    'Why are these two games that have been shat out overnight a bit simple and boring?'

     

     

    my thoughts exactly!

     

    Mr I know technology, he bought the most popular computer in the UK at the time and butchered it, launched arguably the world's shittest console, claimed in 2005 using all his industry acumen to say the ipod would be forgotten in months after its release, and lets not forget the great bit of tech straight out of a 1950's vision of living in 2000 the emailer phone.

     

    I have to admit the lady who was adamant for an eco themed videogame really just didn't get it and it was delightful to watch. insisting her eco message would win through against actual entertaining games because of THE MESSAGE!!!!

  14. very disappointed last night that a turd based product failed to materialise

     

    the highlight for me was that lord sugarlumps failed to recognise how important the branding and look of the drink were, and tried to chastise whats his face for doing the design with "why wasnt you at the tasting" when monster energy is proof that you can shift pint sized cans of hulk piss with a brand that attracts the audience it's targeted at.

     

    Shame we didn't get to see this seasons obvious wierdo have a proper meltdown/spectacular failure as opposed to being let go for being bland.

    I'm surprised that Poundland McGregor got fingered, he actually seemed like he had his head screwed on. If someone had briefed me to create a magical androgynous wizard that helps a six year old brush their teeth I would have grabbed my wheelie case and headed for the cab then and there.

     

    I think in the first few weeks unless someone makes an absolutely shocking balls up the firing is more to do with their business plan.

     

    Akeem is my current most hated, just those little shots of his bug eyed face agreeing in a toadish manner with everything lord sugar says, closely followed by miss bouji from last week, she seems a bit too proud of her ignorance and if she is unaware of anything then it cant be important.

  16. everything looks good, but the uncle phil role is bloody difficult, James Avery could switch between comic relief, befuddled old man and super serious arse kicking mega dad in an instant and play each of those roles brilliantly. new dude has some big shoes to fill
