  1. Oh I know Steely, this must be so hard for you! Oh no, I have to play my TOTS defender, I also have the amazing Isco, my wallets to small for my fifties and my diamond shoes are too tight! Fuck off mate!
  2. When does the World Cup version start? I'm sitting on about 200k coins and not enough players to make a decent squad as keeping it all for the WC mode. If it doesn't start soon I'm going to blow it all on packs, get a load of shite and then never play FIFA again!
  3. Is there a book chat thread? I just finished book 3 and will be sourcing 4 today and could really do with having at least one person to chew the ear off about how fucking incredible it all is
  4. I understand very little about the distribution rights, etc. but why is SyFy dropping it a problem for Netflix? Did Netflix just pay SyFy for a license to air after SyFy paid for production? The Expanse is miles ahead of Netflix original shows like Altered Carbon and Lost in Space so it really should take the plunge and make it Netflix flagship Sci-Fi show. Ive just finished the third book and while the story will continue for me through the books I would be gutted if the TV adaption came to an abrupt end

    Arrow

    Legends of Tomorrow works so well because it blends the episode of the week stuff brilliantly with the overarching plot / villain. It also benefits from almost breaking the 4th wall at times with its sharp humour, a consistent cast that compliment each other perfectly and of course the cosmic angel that is Caity Lotz. I would eat the lint from that womans belly button! There have been fleeting moments in Arrow, Flash and Supergirl this season where I have really enjoyed them but its not been enough to make me really care about what is happening. Now as we approach the final few episodes of each things are starting to perk up but that just confirms there has been so much unnecessary exposition rather than having it build carefully toward something special like Arrow Season 1 and 2, Flash Season 1 and most of Supergirl up to now. The last couple of episodes of Arrow (Sky pace) have had Oliver literally say he needs to bring things back to basics, as if they have realised things have gotten out of control but are now baking the course correction into a plot device I expect all these shows are going to finish their seasons strong with Arrow and the surprisingly menacing Diaz looking the most promising but a shorter episode run going forward can only improve things.

    Arrow

    I think all CW Superhero shows are starting to suffer from the very bloated 20+ episode seasons. It leads to the key plot threads being dragged out over a stupid amount of time and lots of little distractions thrown in between that add very little. Supergirl seems to be doing the same thing where it is starting to pick up again as it approaches the end of the season but overall it just takes too long for them all to get anywhere and that's even excluding the huge gaps mid-season. The best modern shows never go over about 12 episodes and there is clearly a reason for that. Unless you have a villain as detailed and well founded as Manu Bennetts Deathstroke or Tom Cavanaghs Reverse Flash (Season 1) then 20+ episodes in a season is far too much!

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Chewie is the main one for me, especially after him being drastically underused in TLJ, not to mention completely disregarded as far as his reaction to Han at the end of TFA. This will make up for that. It had better make up for tha!!

    Arrow

    Since Manu departed this season has just been boring event after boring event. That was until episode 19 and to some extent episode 18. Feel things have picked up here and set up a really interesting final few episodes but why the fuck they took this long to actually show us how genuinely menacing the main villain is I have no idea. Actuallt I do, it’s because everything in between has been pure filler which is really disappointing but hopefully these final few episodes at least make up for that a little bit.

    We Belong at the end of Talladega Nights is one of the best uses of music in a film. Ever!!

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    That was just to illustrate that Rey being abandoned on a shite hole wasn’t hard to explain. Her being left their didn’t have to be as a result of a current threat, instead something that Luke had foreseen and was preparing for on his wee island. As @JPL said above, it’s not the fact that Reys parents and back story turned out to be a big nothing. It’s the fact that how it is portrayed in TLJ is as much about dispelling the possibilities that TFA setup as it is about moving things forward and the 2nd part of a trilogy feels like the wrong place to do that!

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    To hide and protect her? Like Yoda and Obi Wan did with Luke? I don’t think it’s implausible for a version of TLJ to exist where Reys parents are already known to us, but the direction RJ took things now makes those theories seem misplaced. I totally get what RJ was going for on the whole anyone can be a Jedi thing and making sure not to repeat the original / prequels trilogies focus on everything and everyone somehow being linked. It’s just done in such a brash and bullish way that (for me anyway) it leaves these first parts of the trilogy feeling quite disjointed. Hence my point around wanting JJ to avoid that at all costs with episode 9. In someways I think what RJ did was a mistake, in other ways I think it was great. What matters now is that episode 9 doesn’t try to undo ANY of those things, regardless of which ones I believe were good.

    Its slightly different now though as TFA set these things up as possibilities whereas TLJ has laid them out as key parts of the story, ie Reys parents, Luke’s sabre meaning nothing.
