    Fucking hell. Someone pull the plug and put this shit out of its misery.

    Has anyone watched the Maddie documentary yet? Tempted to give that a go at some point.

    ......Yeah, I didn't think of that. Good point!

    I'm guessing that would have risked destroying Section 31 HQ. Does anyone know if they're doing a mid-season break again this time? How many episodes do we have left to come?

    FIIIIIIINALLY! What did that take, 5 or 10 minutes to introduce some back story to a character? And now I have a reason to give a shit about robot lady/Airiam. Why the hell could they have not done this a season and a half ago? Edit: I still don't give a shit about the Burnham/Spock story, mind

    You haven't missed much. Despite the music and camera trying to make you think there's lots going on all the time. Constantly. Non stop excitement.

    I think episodic would've been even more dull, personally. I'm currently rewatching Voyager having been through all the other Treks over the past 18 months and it does feel a tired format by then. We've already had twenty broken holodeck, kidnapped crew, medical mystery episodes so Voyager was getting some really bad episodes attempting to retread the same format in a slightly different way. Same goes for S1 and 2 of Enterprise. That show only got good when it ditched episodic and had the epic Xindi storyline across S3. Discovery's problem isn't that it has an overarching plot across a whole season, it's that the overarching plot is shit. And all the characters except Pike are horsepiss. Other than that and several hundred other problems, it's fine.

    Is it just me, or is the dual shock still **** ?

    This is my main gripe. I'm always accidentally fast-forwarding films with this technique.

    Since when did action mean fight scenes? It's all snazzy CGI and folk powerwalking about the place in a hurry. There's no pause for thought or reflection, aside from when Burnham's talking, when I tend to drift off and think about what I should have for dinner.

    F1 - Drive to Survive

    Qualifying decides which order they will start the race in. If you qualify in a good position you have a better chance of winning the race. That's what I took from episode one.

    This is such piss. It annoys me that it's now pissing its piss all over TOS canon too. Piss off. Pike is fantastic, everyone else is either really boring (Burnham) or really annoying (Tilly). The fight in the mess hall...I could not care less who won. They're both awful boring piss flavoured nothing characters. We're a season and a half into this now and we still don't know why bionic eye lady has a bionic eye, whether robot lady is a robot or part human or whatever, but that's ok because we've had NON STOP ACTION. LOTS OF ACTION ALL THE TIME. DOESN'T MATTER IF IT MAKES SENSE SO LONG AS IT'S ACTION AND OH LOOK HERE'S TILLY ISN'T SHE KOOKY. Yes, I know, I don't have to keep watching it. But I will. And I will keep fucking moaning about it too. If they just sacked off the constant focus on Burnham, Tilly and Clem and fleshed out the rest of the bridge crew. If they just chilled the fuck out and stopped spraying piss everywhere, there's the makings of good trek here. In its current form it's just horseshit though. Pissy horseshit.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I watched the first two episodes of that when it came out but didn't get on with it. It wasn't bad but didn't really tickle me. Appreciate the recommendation though!

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    This is fantastic. Great return. Makes me wonder if I've missed anything else from bbc3? Apart from this and people just do nothing I tend to ignore any bbc3 comedy as it just looks like a rehashed two pints of lager aimed at sixteen year olds

    That's because there were loads of really boring Klingon scenes where they all talk at three words per minute.
