    I did pause with the Sopranos stuff and think ‘shit’ as I have it on my to-watch list, but I knew I would forget soon enough. Then I read this thread and someone posts up the names of the relevant characters so it’s etched into my brain now.



    Sorry Darwock. Too late now but I've edited them out. Go back and read it again so the alternate names embed themselves.

    That's what I mean, he's actually looked at action movie history. A lot of the recent Bond directors are just not action directors so I imagine that stuff is falling to second units. Not good enough.


    I was being a bit subtle as I wasn't sure if you knew and were playing along (and you still could be), but the clip with the helicopter chase in that tweet is taken from Capricorn One.

    does anyone remember one of the forum members who produced a song that got to number #1 in the charts? If i remember correctly the music video was more a dance/edm track but in a hotel? and the guy was wearing a wolf head?


    This one? 


    Was myoozikk, IIRC.

    I've dead dumpster's post three times now and can't see any spoilers about BCS. 


    'So while they have done a lot of publicity saying Walt and Jesse are showing up in these final episodes'

    I've not seen this being announced.

  5. I've gone the other way over the past few years.  I had an Xbox 360 and a PS3 (and at least one console per generation prior to that, going back to the SNES) but skipped Xbox One until the end of 2019 (I think).  I found myself watching nothing in particular on TV in the evening after the kids went to bed and thought it would be better to make a positive choice about what I did with that time.


    Gamepass sealed it so I got an Xbox One S - I never really bought loads of games, so the idea of paying a small amount and getting access to a large library appealed.  I bought a Series X close to launch and have Gamepass paid up until early 2025.  There's also a Switch, but it's not had any use from me in some time.


    I tend to play a bit each night.  At the moment, that's Halo Infinite multiplayer but I'm on the lookout for a single player game to get stuck into.

    One amazing thing about this wonderful film I haven’t seen mentioned in here yet:


      Hide contents

    Best use of the single ‘fuck’ allowed under a PG-13 rating ever - when Rooster yells WHAT THE FUCK in response to the fifth gen fighter doing the most unearthly gravity-defying flip-spin to get behind them in the final fight. It was exactly what every single person watching thought in their head at the same time. 


    One of my favourite things was how 


    Maverick and Iceman always ended their one-line text messages with a full stop.

    I was watching a lot of the episodes thinking whoever is directing this is directing the absolute hell out of it. Turns out those were the Bill Hader directed episodes. Bloody hell, he's a talented guy,


    He's directing all of the episodes in the next series.

    Two-guess victory #8! 8-)


    Wordle 362 2/6





      Reveal hidden contents


    (the word)


    The first word I tried for guess #2 was invalid because it's a proper noun:


      Reveal hidden contents





    Wordle 362 2/6*



    Snap! Same starting word, and I also tried that proper noun.

    I can't believe you missed the only possible correct response to this. You all know the one I'm talking about.



    "You know when I said Commando was an actual, stone cold classic movie?  I LIED."



  10. The final episode was amazing, but I don't feel that the rest of the series was as strong as the others, because the storylines for the main characters were quite separate. That's understandable given how the last series ended, but for me it lacked a bit of cohesion. Still very good though.


    The separate storylines are raised here: https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/bill-hader-barry-arrested-season-3-finale-1235290822/


    Seeing Alec Berg's name in the credits always makes say his name in the way Jerry Seinfeld does in this clip. (He was a writer and producer on Seinfeld.)

    There were half a dozen shows vying for 20th but the fact that I couldn't decide means it stays empty. I found it easier to order those at the very top but after that the placing is less meaningful.
