    The Apprentice 2018

    Fuck me is Kurran thick. It's like a Labrador somehow became a man and is still getting used to his humanoid form. His pitch dribble followed by forgetting the name of his team leader had me in stitches. Just the way he was sitting in the waiting area before Sir Alan called them in, with his back super straight and his palms on his knees, was funny. Currently the only thing keeping me watching.

    Better Call Saul!

    I know people are idiots, human nature yadda yadda, but the fucking balls on Werner that he could break out of that guarded complex and have a holiday for four days and fuck his wife, then come back and say sorry, to a drug lord building a multi-million pound lab underground that is so secret he builds a special enclosed village for the workforce, and it would somehow not result in his absolute fucking death. That for me is miles away from convincing behaviour. Getting drunk and spouting about the construction to the first schmo you lay eyes on is bad, but impromptu breakout holidays when you want some nookie is batshit grade A idiocy.

    Better Call Saul!

    But that's what I mean by saying "he knew what he was getting involved with" - a giant lab underground for industrial drug production. He knew his life was on the line from the start. Talking at the bar about the construction like he had a death-wish, shaking during the controlled demolition - and then to just bolt and run into the desert. Something isn't being fully explained. I expect he's made a cataclysmic structural error, or tried to do something over the top like his father with the Opera House, which means the whole thing's unstable and he ran before he was brought to task on it. Wasn't there a thing recently where Mike was laying a concrete path for a charity or something? Mike's going to clock something and all those Germans are going to be in that concrete mould before you can say danke.

    Better Call Saul!

    But why did the boss run away? And what was up with the shakes and general anxiety during the controlled explosion? Having a wife doesn't cut it. He knew what he was getting involved in better than any of them.

    How would you make a good Superman game?

    Just take Alien: Isolation, and swap the xenomorph with Superman. Also the Nostromo is now New York. And you play Lois Lane. Easy.

    "I thought I could go all the way and win it. But there were a lot of inflated egos in there." Wonderful segue from Sarah there. She then laughed like a self-immolating seagull.

    Sarah needs to be shot into the sun. It's actually an emergency.

    But what if you miss the postman?

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I wish the cocksuckers would just make the whole fucking thing a Deadwood knock off. None of this R* side mission shit - just cutting cheese, selling pussy, and feeding the latest hooplehead to Wu's pigs. A man can fucking dream.

    Future Star Wars spinoffs on hold :(

    After a great opening film it's all been horribly botched for me. Having no overall artistic vision or narrative arc for the trilogy and just letting different directors write their own instalments like some pass the parcel Victorian magazine was insane. They need a TV style showrunner for the entire slate - spin offs and all - a new Lucas basically to oversee all the scripts and creative choices. Otherwise this franchise is going nowhere.

    Favourite acting performance of all time

    Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden. It was just a perfect collision of role and actor, required a quite unbelievable range (crazy metaphysical philosopher king who is both saviour, mentor, idol and nemesis) and a style that was basically designer tramp. And he fucking pulled it off in every fucking frame. He absolutely owned that role - he ate it up and spat it out. Splicing porn and blowing up condos and building an army - never doubted him for a second. For me it's up there with Street Car Named Desire. No one else could have done it. Fight Club hinged on that role, and that's why as a film it's a fucking classic.
  13. Killing Eve doesn't just look top tier, it is actually quite risky in that it is a tonally unique mash up of the thriller genre and the sitcom, and it works. So high budget and original and utterly brilliant. From the BBC. Who the fuck could have thought that. A torpedo in the hull of any theory saying the BBC can't compete with the big boys and has to stick to fucking perma-tan dross like Merlin.

    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    Comer for all the awards. The ones she not eligible for she can steal and maybe bludgeon a security guard with.
