  1. Nick Gage has also worked with Bryan Alvarez, and does anyone honestly think Alvarez is getting in the ring with someone unsafe, untrustworthy, likely to go against the script, likely to go into business for themself? Not a chance.
  2. Got unexpectedly emotional myself when they won, and by such a small margin too after the Chinese pairing almost hit a perfect final dive.. I know he's a polarizing voice, but I really enjoy Leon Taylor's enthusiasm and joy when commentating. Could've done without Dan Walker and Sam Quek trying to foster this "Magic Monday" malarkey though.
  3. She is one of the new team captains for the rebooted 'A Question of Sport' so I can only assume this is a way of giving her some experience and exposure before that. I've not seen any of her today but thought she was very poor yesterday. She would have been ideal for the Hockey coverage in some aspect (commentary, analysis, interviewer) but the BBC seem to have a thing for the Richardson-Walsh's who I am guessing will be all over it instead. I'm just hoping Michael Johnson will be on the Athletics coverage as usual. I've not seen him say anything on his Twitter feed about who he is working for but he's the saving grace of the Beeb's output (along with Gabby Logan) and I dread to think how bad it will with Colin Jackson and Denise Lewis carrying the load with the likely occasional appearances of Paula Radcliffe and Jess Ennis too.
  4. Didn't know the best place to post this, but whilst watching Uprising I spotted a familiar face during the Black People's Day of Action march. Some of the marchers started looting a jewellers and it was those doing the security for the march who got things back under control. Clive Myers, not a bad person to have on your security team.
  5. Former BDO World champion, 'The Viking' Andy Fordham at the age of 59. Amazing that he lived as long as he did.
  6. Enjoy. We took a weekend break to a cottage in Llanarmon, North Wales just over three weeks ago and it was just what was needed. Spent plenty of time in the hot tub but gotten bitten to pieces by midges. Also, stopped off in Chester on the way back, where I went to Uni, which was the first time I'd been back in over a decade so that was a cool way to finish things.
  7. I'm sure I've wrote about this match on here before, Jerry Lawler vs The Snowman.
  8. Some of the stuff just felt a bit OTT and unrealistic to me; like Bob trying to throw a chair through the glass panel in the building to escape from Hogan, the scene at AA, at the shopping centre, the "miscarriage", but maybe it wasn't then after all? Ed Helms is someone I don't actively seek out after ending up loathing Andy in the Office but he was good here. Added points for Rashida Jones too.
  9. Most of these are via nefarious means. Kill List (2011) (All 4) A pair of contract killers take on a job that sees things spiral out of control. A straightforward Hitman flick all of a sudden turns into some creepy cult horror. I’m not sure what to make of this. Incredibly graphic violent and the ending is truly shocking. I was left with more questions than answers though. Sightseers (2012) A seemingly ordinary couple’s first holiday together, caravanning around the Lake District, takes a dark and sinister turn. Steve Oram and Alice Lowe are both great here and I preferred this over Kill List (Ben Wheatley is the director of both). Not my own words but Natural Born Killers for the Radio 4 generation sums this up perfectly. Jealous Alan (2019) (BBC iPlayer) Two best friends fancy the same girl, or do they? Thought provoking decent short Scottish film. Our Ladies (2019) A group of Catholic school girls head to Edinburgh for a choir competition but are more interested in hitting the town, partying and getting laid. A gem of a coming of age comedy. Very well acted and a great soundtrack. There’s also a poignant ending as we find out what happened next to the girls. Booksmart (2019) Best friends Amy and Molly have spent their high school years studying in order to get into the best College, when they realize what they’ve missed out on they’ve one night to make up for it. A funny, surreal in places, comedy that also deals with issues of friendship and unrequited love. The two leads, Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever, are both excellent. Tag (2018) The true story of a group of friends who have been playing the game of Tag, every May, for the last 30 years. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, however I’m guessing there is a fair bit of creative license going on to bring the story to the big screen. Isla Fisher’s intense and uber-competitive character is a hoot.
  10. New year, new thread. Actor Mark Eden, best known to a generation as Alan Bradley off Coronation Street and who in real life was married to co-star Sue Nicholls (Audrey), has passed away at the age of 92.
