  1. What have you been watching on (proper scripted) telly?

    Arkangel feels like one of those where there might be a disconnect if you're not a parent. I enjoyed it but I can understand why some people wouldn't. The only clunker for me was Black Museum which just felt a bit too cute for me. I'm beginning to feel like they need to knock it on the head now though. They're in danger of repeating themselves or being predictable. A few of the plot twists have been visible from miles away this season. Still a few really good hours of storytelling.
  2. That Star Trek thread somebody was talking about

    I really like Discovery as well. It's always felt like Star Trek to me, but I've always been more of a DS9 guy than TOS or TNG. When I was a kid it never really registered how bat shit Avery Brooks was as Sisko. That said Brooks in real life is the definition of eccentricity. If you've seen the 'Captains' documentary that Shatner did a few years ago the Brooks bits are my favourites. He makes Shatner look like an accountant.
  3. [NSFW] Less commercial or conventional hotties

    I'm not trawling through 200 pages but is Linda Cardellini appropriate here? Too conventional or mainstream? Been slightly in love with her since Scooby Doo.
  4. NXT - Post NXT Takeover discussion in progress

    They've probably put the belts on them so they've got a proven pair of workers to carry longer matches for the next couple of TakeOvers. Also I agree with Malvo that they've got the chicken shit heel stuff down pat. That said Kyle O'Reilly's face needs to calm the fuck down though!
  5. [NSFW] Less commercial or conventional hotties

    She's exactly the kind of bland generic Barbie that Fox/Sky News weaponise to make Billy-Bob hard for hating everyone who isn't Billy-Bob.
  6. [NSFW] Less commercial or conventional hotties

    With all the discussion of middlingly attractive right wing monsters has anyone else mentioned Tomi Lahren, America's favourite Evil Cheerleader?
  7. Got most of the hard work done yesterday, we're going to a friends house for dinner, armed with chorizo soup and a salted caramel tart. My little girl is presently doing her best to play with each of her toys in turn, for 10 minutes a piece. Should take roughly 4 days. I don't get to watch anything cool over Christmas as the wife takes on the role of Guardian of All That is Festive.
  8. Tom 'Z-Man' Zenk RIP

    I fucking loved Zenk as a kid. I remember reading his blog years ago and he just came across as a bit bitter and bitchy but he really was one of those guys you felt should've done more. He was athletic, at his peak had a great physique and was the epitome of 80's handsome. Not the best news to end my birthday on.
  9. Star Wars Thread - Spoilers, yo.

    That Leia scene is the only quibble I have with the whole film. I've seen people complaining that Luke 'goes out like a bitch' and I can only assume that they're absolute fucking idiots to be honest. That Force projection is the single most powerful use of the Force seen in 8 movies and dickheads are complaining that Luke doesn't do anything in the film.
  10. The Metal/Punk/Rock Thread

    Anyone given the new Quicksand album a go yet?
  11. Star Wars Thread - Spoilers, yo.

    The hilarious thing is that most of the whinging seems indicative of an inability to understand or even just watch the movie. The Finn and Rose subplot serves as a thematic counterpoint to Poe's story in that it's about giving him reasons to stand and fight as opposed to Poe who needs to learn when and how to fight. It all also plays heavily into the films second theme which is the idea of the spark of rebellion. The bitching that people are doing regarding Snoke completely ignores the fact that we knew absolutely nothing about the Emperor after Jedi for nearly 15 years. The fact that it's THE MIDDLE OF THE STORY seems to have passed people by as well. It's a miracle it's as concise as it is to be fair. Also, can you imagine what would've happened if David Lynch had actually accepted the offer of Return of the Jedi?
  12. Star Wars Thread - Spoilers, yo.

    I loved it. I think a lot of the bitching is tied into the nature of fanboyism. People who feel ownership of the stories just objecting to the fact that they haven't been given the exact story they've been writing in their head the last two years. That said Leia Poppins was fucking pony, wasn't it?
