  1. 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
  2. I don't know why they bother with episode 1 anymore, just fire a bloke in the first five minutes
  3. and once again, tomorrow lord sugarlumps will be trotting out 16 sociopaths (because the Lottie's of this world get more ratings than the Ruth Badgers) to play the same games again. time for a good old fashioned hate watch!
  4. i had to vote for the second best one liner as "I am reliable, I'm a very good listener and i'm extremely funny" from Dark fate wasn't there
  5. So far episode 4 is two programs in one, alongside the now standard discovery mental health awareness discovery message. Tilly and co - doing some proper trek. Burnham and Saru - seemingly trying to do an episode of Scooby Doo Book and Doc doing this weeks mental health awareness course
  6. i really want to see the abomination version of Tails and Knuckles now
  7. Remember when the enterprise D found Scotty in a transporter buffer in a crashed ship? The original miracle worker, one of the finest brains in starfleet who proved he was hopelessly out of date just 100 years later. Most of the crew should be sitting in their quarters rocking back and forth with underwear on their heads, pencils in their ears uttering only the word "wubble" as the shock gets to them that all their family are dead, their field of expertise and level of knowledge is now something that is surpassed by 7 year olds and there's so much terrifying new shit to get their heads round - did you hear about that bunch of seemingly unstoppable cybernetic beings bent on assimilating everything in the galaxy that are in the delta quadrant? no? oh well, don't even think about reading about the extradimensional xenophobic aliens who beat the shit out of them and could pop up anywhere and blow a planet up in seconds! Fuck that- i'm off to the gamma quadrant! *Cough* - xenophobic shapeshifter led superpower who can vat breed an army of millions of super soldiers in a couple of weeks *cough* Oh Jesus, well screw all of that i'm going to live on a rock and become a priest! I wouldn't, we've met God, his name is Q, humanity is on trial for the crimes of its existence with him, and he has seemingly no qualms about erasing things from the universe for shits and giggles
  8. i leave the torrent running for an extra couple of hours as my own little fuck you to them
  9. ten minutes into my lunchtime hate watch of season 4 episode 1. "let's fly" can get to fuck already. Burnham is being Burnham and continually smug smiling
  10. I too watched a 4k rip of it on Saturday. But I was home by myself, and got to watch it in sheer solitary bliss and take in every second. I will go and see it in the cinema, but i equally love and loathe going to the cinema, big screen, amazing sound, total immersion are all fantastic. But the sheer amount of people who just sit there and talk all the fucking way through the film, whether its the couple on a date and she isn't interested and waffles on throughout, or it's the lads trying to out knowledge each other o the films lore, or the other lads who want to talk about how Baz was bang out of order to Tel last week for something or other. And if its not that shower of cunts flapping their pie holes constantly, it's someone else who is actually exercising their pie hole and they are trying to consume the same amount of calories in two hours as Dwayne Johnson does on one of his cheat days. Definitely going to go see this and pay my way, i loved the movie from 25 years ago and i want to see the whole story played out in this version. But I cant watch any blockbuster in the cinema during the first couple of weeks after release because of the morons that ruin the atmosphere. Oh how i wish there was a cinema run by someone like the soup nazi from seinfeld. My perfect cinema would have a membership scheme, you book a seat with your membership card, the chairs would have microphones in them that can detect how much noise you make, if you are a good silent viewer, future films get cheaper and you get preferential bookings. Sir talks-a-lot over there will find his prices just doubled and he's not allowed tickets for release week. All snacks to be served in padded bowls so we don't have to listen to jabba the hutt slowly trying to slip his trotter into the worlds crinkliest bag of minstrels every 30 seconds.
  11. I have a couple of new guilty pleasures. Ever since i moved predominantly to working from home i need rubbish on in the background for noise. I loved Hoarders on prime, although the mrs refuses to watch it because it gives people ammo proving that her mum is a hoarder latest guilty pleasure is Mountain Men, there are some properly interesting characters in that show.
  12. This is good news. I detest All 4, it's like during the design process they had an overseer who didn't understand what they were overseeing who was present in all meetings screaming "IT MUST PLAY ADVERTS!!!!". the amount of times that app resets playback of a show after forcing adverts down your throat, and then you cant fast forward back to where you were before is ridiculous.
  13. dug days is a recent winner. has my 3.5 year old in stitches and my 15 month old mesmerised by "dogdogs" as he points to the screen in awe. Also it still has the heart that dug did in the movie
  14. I consumed the spice melange last night and i definitely felt part of my anatomy expanding this morning
  15. i read the second book, and it was way better than the film. my favourite bit was
  16. Surprise Hit's soulless sequel a movie comes out that flies in the face of current trends, captures imaginations and makes bank and builds a fan base. Now a couple of years have passed it's time to make the sequel to milk that fan base, but it needs some tweaks.... 1. shoehorn a big name actor of the day to take a leading a role, everybody loves them! who cares if they ham it up? 2. Kids, we needs to pack the movie with kids, the first one didn't have any and that stifled toy sales, what were you thinking, were you trying to make a film or something?!? (you may be able to tell from the above that i hated pacific rim 2 after loving the first one) the soulless reboot, now with way better special effects to cover the piss poor rewritten kid friendly plot. fuck you 12a rated robocop
  17. Dune captured my imagination as a kid, primarily because it premiered on terrestrial tv on a Sunday night in the 80's and i got to watch the first ten minutes before my dad sent me off to bed. the theme music stuck in my head. I'm not sure my tiny mind will cope with a Dune movie without that theme music that seemed to match the film so brilliantly
  18. to be fair, he already stopped himself, but 3 hour long kevin costner post apocalyptic extravaganzas. Movie versions of stage musicals, especially ones with all star casts
  19. Battlebots is now on there for a slice of robot fighting action. I love robots fighting, but oh my god i hate american TV- Hi I'm Chud Chudson and this is my co-host Chad Chadson and we are going to talk for absolutely ages making a 45 minute show with only 9 minutes of the thing you actually tuned in for, leaving 36 minutes of our voices!!
  20. just watched the original trailer, the ecto 1 noise still gives me goosebumps! (i get them when cool shit happens, and used to get them whenever a cartoon character did their special move as a kid)
  21. This kept cropping up, so i thought i would give it a download. It sort of has promise, but 5 episodes in and its a bit, well, meh. the problem is as brits we had lampooning of the royals forever, and this lampooning is just too by the book, it feels like they have tried to make Prince George like Stuey Griffin, just without any of the essence that makes Stuey so great. There is one character that makes me laugh, and that's Prince Louis, but if you take all of his scenes from the first 5 episodes that totals a maximum of 45 seconds
  22. The holodeck didn't work for junior horny vulcan dude who got a bit rapey with Torres. Also lower decks touched on this really well, Cleaning out the holodeck waste tank must be the worst job. I always wondered what happened when you took real stuff into the holodeck like say a book, and you ended the program with a holo character holding it, the book would just drop to the floor. Well, what about the *ahem* human items that must have been *left* in all the characters in space ireland? I feel sorry for the poor engineers who made the holodecks, sat back, proud of their creation, their pure vision for a totally immersive entertainment system only limited by a users imagination, seeing the stats come back form the ships counsellors that crews are more relaxed and then to be called into that meeting. "Guys, there was a massive oversight with the holodecks!" "what, is it the safety protocols? we had Starfleet's finest working on those, they are impossible to circumvent without the user specifically requesting that!" "no not the safety protocols" "It cant be artificial life issue - we think we worked all the kinks out of that one, although gary does think that the right circumstances could cause a problem, but gary worries too much" "Nope, Semen" "Semen?" "The crew are shagging the holograms" "What? no, no no, no no no, the holodeck was designed so you could play a part in a symphony orchestra in the amphitheatre on Tantalon 5, Scuba dive the giant living reefs on the water moons of Borcheron 3, fly with the hawks on Appolonia!" "well, it seems the most popular attraction is the alley behind the O'Neills pub in Brentwood with Mandy the barmaid, closely followed by spring break on Risa, and when they end the program, they are leaving erm.... genetic residue.. Everywhere. we need to retrofit the entire fleet's holodecks with spunkgutters" "FML!"
  23. space Mengele was great, but I forget whether that episode was before or after the one where they tried and failed to write a new doctor program and it turns out all you they needed to do was say "computer, create a Beverley crusher hologram please" the doctors family needed altering as he created the perfect family and was being a dick about how easy family life was and made his family brilliant at everything, so he got a harsh dose of reality. but, back to tuvix, @JamesC said it perfectly, and tuvix would have been a liability, all those Vulcan traits like strength and telepathy but most importantly the raging emotions that require so much discipline to control, having Neelix take around in there would have wreaked havoc, especially during the horny times
