  1. My theory on Jaime which I'm going to spoiler because it's been foreshadowed so much

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy (now "on hiatus")

    As someone not emotionally connected to this franchise as you might expect given my general geekiness, I've found all the controversy over TLJ baffling and fascinating. Enjoyed reading these last few pages now the dust has settled a bit. What I still don't get is all the hate for the breast milk scene.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes

    wait this is the first really good one of the re-boots with James Franco? Yes
  4. good question... Really disliked the fast pace of the end of last season and giving time for the characters was for me, an excellent move.

    Line of Duty (BBC)

    That was gripping, really enjoyed it. Have you seen this is England? She's incredible in that. I think it's more to do with writing.
  6. If it's the dark bidding joke they can use that again all they like because it's probably the best joke in cinema.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I agree with both of you! You can read it either way. And I'm just reminded of her sister coldly explaining why chasing someone to an airport would be difficult to impossible, and then creepy.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    It's really slowly grown so by the time series two came out loads were up to speed with how brilliant it is. The show is also very much of its time, I'm the same age as flea bag and it's the most relatable thing I've seen on TV. The shallowness of online Dating, feminism, mental health and death are also topics which we are only just starting to talk about properly as a culture. Fleabag has something new and funny to say on all those topics. And the absurdity of modern life. Yes it's very middle class and London, but that's because she is. Why is no one commentating on the symbolism of the bus stop? Obviously many ways to read that.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    I never really was into marvel as a kid, even though I found the opening of the silver surfer (on TV) completely mesmerising I never followed it up. I always liked the most out there and wacky bits of Spiderman and X-Men. Now though I get a joy reading about made up beings who are more powerful than the last. I wish some of the adults who saw I was obsessed with the Greek and Norse myths had given me a comic. The bloody Norse myths are in marvel too! Anyway where does women with good kicking skills and archery club fit in those lists?

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    First episode goes off iPlayer at ten tomorrow night so good time to watch again I reckon.

    Star Trek Discovery

    I missed a few episodes and I can't be arsed to catch up. I just don't care about the characters and it's boring, even though the music and camera keep telling me what I'm seeing is very exciting.

    Top Gear - Series 24

    Is no one watching this? I had to bloody search. Given how low my expectations were it's actually quite enjoyable. Probably because my expectations were so low and the Sri Lanka section was shot so well.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    Yeah exactly I don't get the smug criticism because we as viewers know how shallow it all is. That criticism just shows you've missed the point of it all. I wasn't as blown away as everyone else, might watch it again. Very happy to have it back though.
