  1. Coronation Street

    I wonder if Daniel Brocklebank did much research on painkiller addiction before tackling this topical storyline or if he just decided on his own that they just shiver a lot but still maintain the ability to keep a tidy beard. The scenes with Billy's horrendous overacting and Summer's horrendous underacting are a joy to behold.

    Early Man -- Aardman nonsense with a prehistoric setting for the invention of football. Maybe because I was watching it with an American audience and a lot of the jokes passed by unnoticed, but this was surprisingly flat for me. Quite a dull story and lacking a memorable character apart from a pig that was basically Gromit with trotters. Wasn't terrible, just pretty forgettable. Great animation, as you'd expect. 5/10

    Also 18. Made a few schoolboy errors. Once again, though, really enjoyed that quiz.

    A dismal 4. And I guessed the Aussie sport question right so it could quite easily have been worse.
  5. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Got the first four right and then stumbled on to a 6/10 for Thursday.
  6. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    6/10 for Tuesday. 7/10 for Wednesday. Buckets of luck both days.
  7. The Alan Partridge Thread

    Doesn't look like it, but Neil and Rob Gibbons are a safe pair of pair of hands.

    Absolutely this. The request from the show to suspend our disbelief at the utter insanity of this baby swap plan is outrageous. Why can't Toyah tell Peter other than to extend the basic premise of the show that people's go-to behaviour when in a relationship with someone is to lie at every opportunity? And did I hear it right that Adam was entertaining the possibility of taking the bar exam during their three or four month extended vacation, in between driving Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway? Really? A grown man, with a modicum of intelligence given his line of work, thinks he can just sign up at the University of America at a moment's notice and get a license to practice law in the US because it "might be worth his while".

    A Ghost Story -- I fully get why some people hated this. It's slow, laborious, chronically melancholic, and it's Casey Affleck under a bed sheet ... but I utterly loved it. I watched it last night and I can't stop thinking about it. I'm not sure I've seen many movies that deal with love and loss and moving on and the temporary nature of everything as beautifully as this does. The emotion in that five-minute scene where Rooney Mara sat on the floor and ate a pie while the ghost silently watches on was incredible. A mark off for the lengthy existential monologue at the party near the end. 9/10
  10. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    7/10 -- distinct absence of a pattern, other than the pattern of getting every fucking Australian sport question wrong.

    Winchester -- What Helen Mirren is doing starring in this heap of dog's eggs is anyone's guess. Written and made by people who haven't the first clue on how to build atmosphere or suspense or foreboding and so instead they rely on cheap jump-scares every five minutes. The Winchester Mansion is an interesting enough building with interesting enough history. It really deserves something better than this. 2/10
  12. Aw, absolute bliss. I like going out with the missus. I like going out with my mates. But sometimes, there's nothing better than being on my Jack Jones with a paper and a pint in a pub where everyone knows the rules and no c**t is going to try and start a conversation with me.

    I was wondering the same. Asking for a friend.

    The Scoundrel Phelan stuff must surely be coming to an end. There can't be much more left to squeeze out of the storyline sponge. My only concern is that Gary and Nicola aren't exactly the top-billing characters to bring him to justice.
