    Great fights, and a great coming out party for Adesanya. Gastelum is top tier, and he was made to look very ordinary at times. I had Max for the main decision, but can't be mad seeing Dustin get a moment that nobody thought he would. Plenty of good fights to look forward to!

    CTE is no joke.

    I always wonder how people come to conclusions like this against a guy who's never been KO'd. Or even looked at risk of being KO'd. Holloway all day. Just like when people forgot how good Max was against Ortega, he'll be more than ready to remind them. I don't know what Adesanya has for Gastelum, who has proven himself to be a truly elite MW. Kelvin is tough as boots, strong and aggressive, and Adesanya's not top 5 in my head. Still, if that highlight reel KO comes through somehow, fair play to him.

    They're all hard workers, but it's unlikely that any fighter at the highest level has clean hands. If that becomes your baseline, which it probably should have been throughout the UFC's chequered history, you can just choose whoever's nicest after all that! Or the most skilled. Want reasons to dislike the org? It's anti-union. They're headed up by a thin-skinned bigot. Title fights aren't a meritocracy and titles are undermined. They don't know how to build stars. They kick athletes when they're down and don't prioritise their health. They reward racism and trash talk over skill. They have no policy to punish people for hanging out with Ramzan fucking Kadyrov. The Reebok deal keeping fighters poor and subservient. The athletes are the only redeeming thing about the place.

    Little Nightmares

    That's upsetting. Would love a proper se/prequel.

    M Night Shyamalan's Glass (2019)

    This one was probably my least favourite of the three, but if you like the others, you'll find something to enjoy. Even if it's just spending more time with McAvoy's characters. A solid 6/10 to choose when you and someone else can't seem to agree on anything better. They seem very inconsistent with how they portray certain abilities, but I suppose that can be said for most superhero movies.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    This Time didn't give us enough off-camera Alan - I hope this has plenty of BTS stuff. Even a companion show about production - that would be amazing.

    The only way to get past it is to make your peace with it. I definitely wouldn't be surprised if noted cardio monsters Holloway, the Diazes and Bisping popped. But I also wouldn't blame them, as that's the landscape. It's surprisingly low down the list of things that leave a bad taste in my mouth about the sport at the moment.

    I honestly can't think of a single fighter that would generate this response from me! There isn't one fighter popping who would be a surprise.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I thought that the ending was good, but not quite the perfect 'poetry' mentioned earlier. It felt vulnerable, and honest, but also like a chapter turning point. A series end, rather than a complete end. So I hope there's more, but at least Killing Eve is back.

    Food Prepping

    I've done the beef cheek ragu a few times now, and adding a couple of tbsp of fennels seeds and a couple of additional glugs of red wine has become a permanent part of the recipe for me. Fully recommended.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    I didn't love this series. Obviously it's Partridge, so it's never less than decent, but it just felt like episodes full of Apatow-style riffing and character improv that doesn't actually care if it's funny. It didn't feel tight and flawless like a lot of older Partridge. Still, glad that people are genuinely loving this, and I'm looking forward to the new history doc series. I loved Scissored Isle.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    Bit of a spoiler, that. Could just be another twist though... hopefully...

    Yoel's out vs Jacare I was hoping that Jacare would get the nod he deserved last time. Either that, or we'd find out if he's going to edge closer to Whitaker again. I'm not sure there's anyone top flight available to elevate him more than a Yoel win would.
