    Arsenal

    Laca absolute trash for 80 minutes, then scores his first away goal in what feels like his entire Arsenal career.

    Linesman flagging an offside from a throw-in. How are we still in this joke-shop tournament?
  3. How strange, I'm re-reading The Stand as well. I'm just up to the first Mother Aibgail chapter so things are starting to get interesting. I've not read it in 15 years but there are so many sections that I can remember so clearly; The Lincoln Tunnel bit, one of Lloyd and Polks murders, Frannie digging a grave - they were just hanging out in my brain until I started reading then they came back in total clarity. Love this book so much.
  4. Yeah, that was a great episode. And would have worked as a Christmas special - I wonder why they pulled it. Did I miss something with the bit with the mother, the daughter and the dress? I thought there was something being hinted at there.

    Absolute quality from Saka there. Two goals for the Arsenal - I’ll take it.

    Classic Xhaka booking there. No threat, just pulls a fella back 30 yards inside the Arsenal half.
  7. Okja - Bong Joon-ho’s Netflix film. Some good acting (Ahn Seo-hyun) some terrible acting (Jake Gyllenhaal) and it's a film trying to say something about factory farming and animal cruelty. But it didn't land for me. The cartoon-ish nature of a lot of the scenes meant the serious message got lost. 2.5/5
  8. After that chance Norwich just missed where Rupp and Pukki somehow screwed up a 2 on 1 with Alison, it looks like Liverpools luck is still in.
  9. Was it definitely a film? I'm pretty sure there was a popular YouTube clip with this scenario a few years back - there's a guy at his computer and his time traveling close keeps turning up and shooting him.
  10. Look at this poster. I already love this film
  11. Yeah, skip this and watch Psychoville. I thought that was amazing. Can't believe we got another episode of it after all these years. Not sure if it worked as an episode of Inside No. 9 though.
  12. I'm just about to finish Spaceman of Bohemia by Jaroslav Kalfar. A debut novel by a Czech writer, living in America and writing in English. It's the story of the Czech Republics first astronaut, who gets sent into space to investigate a mysterious dust cloud that has appeared near Venus. As he travels further from Earth he starts to lose his mind. And he, possibly, starts to hallucinate an alien companion. This is a weird book but I'm absolutely loving it. It can probably be described as Science Fiction but it's mostly about the loneliness and the isolation of the main character. There's lots of flashbacks to his childhood in pre-Velvet Revolution Czechoslovakia and there's a lot of Czech history but it all feels right and coherent in the book. It reminds me a lot of The Book of Strange New Things, which is my favourite sci-fi book of recent years. A good space story which is really a human drama at its heart. I got it cheap on kindle - 2 quid I think. Total bargain.
  13. The Rope episode is from Psychoville isn't it? Which is also amazing and everyone should watch.
  14. I don't think I'll finish it. I sometimes hit a point in fantasy books where I feel like it's shown me everything it has to show and there's still a few hundred pages to go. And I hit that point a few chapters back. My short review; great city and world building but lacking plot and characters.
