  1. Yeah it's good and a great companion to last Kingdom. I didn't bother with season six mind.
  2. I was amazed it was commissioned given the expense, but the end product was better than anyone could of hoped for surely? Clearly Netflix are more interested in the medium and short term, but this could of been the next game of thrones. Why not?
  3. Well music magpie have returned it apparently after fixing, so I might keep it after all.
  4. That's great news, I'll have to wait for the paperback but I can't wait.
  5. I thought it was just me who made up lyrics, I'm glad harry is a fan. My favourite is singing "it's the news" to the Channel 4 news theme tune. Try it.
  6. So my refurbed Xbox one from music magpie has died, well the power unit has. My old Xboxes still work, so I'm pretty disappointed. Just going to get a refund, these new consoles aren't for me really, too much time needed and all this online nonsense and updates piss me off, and now I can afford another holiday.
  7. Gatwick is the UK's best airport though
  8. The history one is amazing, the juxtaposition of the great Ken Clarke with Danny Dyer's own documentary efforts is the gift that keeps giving. Laugh out loud funny, though I wished it settled down sometimes and was a bit more straight up "history of TV" as some of the things he touches on are interesting. What happened to the food poising iron age settlement?
  9. Ha yes the fucking is there, way too much sex stuff. It's like everyone is as horny as a teenager. But the acting is great, and the show lays out it characters so well.

    Again I always feel T20 fizzles out more often than not, but great from England. So many options in this squad, good times.

    Buttler there with the worst ever review I've ever seen. Incredible.
  12. Do we need spoilers? Anyway I'd stop when I remember that being the last story arc that wasn't a bit wank maybe?

    Well the cricket is on BBC1 and you couldn't have hoped for a better start, can't stop smiling at this amazing bowling.
  14. Kaufman I think, or the other person in the interview about Anomolisa, famously told the UK's most popular film podcast that films are "a succession of still images" it was a running joke for a while and I got the impression they just didn't get on.
  15. So my sister and her partner are obsessed with this and after being baffled for so long I think I finally understand what's going (almost). Is there a more complex and baffling sport? The adverts on ITV4 are driving me mad though, they seem to go on for ever or I manage to leave the room and return as a new set starts? who knows.
  16. It does seem Nolan was banking on people seeing these twice, or at least happy with the idea of that. In fairness, I did put the Prestige on straight after watching it. This was exhausting though in comparison, it had no room to breath.
  17. Excellent thanks for that @MardiganX, I think I get it now and will pretend to my friends I did that myself. Really looking forward to watching it again to see if it holds up.
  18. I saw the trailer before tenet, it's one of the worst trailers I've seen. It was always going to be generic but this really looked tired, you could see the plot beats a mile off. The joke at the end fell totally flat in the cinema as well, awful. The women from bridesmaid's is a cat? Odd choice of casting.
  19. So no one here has attempted to explain what happened? I enjoyed it, but worry it'll fall apart on examination. I think I understood about 80% of the dialogue, these days I watch everything with subtitles so it's really hard not having them anyway!
  20. Yeah I got the game pass, I know red dead comes off soon so trying to crack on with it, but it became a bit of a chore. I've read some of the thread and it does get better apparently and everyone seems to quit where I am now, so I'll keep at it for now. But yeah I'm reminded why I quit gaming, I felt I was wasting time which I never feel when I'm reading a book. So really I want games that are games, quick and disposable.
  21. Thanks got the advice everyone. RDR2 is very boring, I'm surprised as I adored the original but this one is a hell of a lot of talking and sometimes it's trivial so I started skipping then I missed something key and now I don't care. The missions are too easy, I only ever die when I'm caught out in the open, crouching up and down trying to put my bow away. While getting a bounty is too easy and everyone starts trying to kill you, even chasing you down for just walking in their way. Forza horizon 4 is nuts on the other hand and couldn't be more different, love it.
  22. I've never read a marvel comic but remember and strongly liked the venom story from the 90s Saturday morning BBC cartoon. Its a pet theory of mine that those series of cartoons laid the foundation for the massive franchise as it is.
  23. Thanks all, I've been playing red dead which is as impressive technically as I'd hope. I'm not sure it's fun yet but I won't know that until I've killed a bear with a shotgun. It goes from the game pass on the seventh and there's no chance I'll get it done!
  24. Can someone explain why Darkseid was then wasn't in this?
