  1. There were definitely aspects that worked better than others, but I agree that it was rushed through so the impact of it really was diminished.
  2. According to his Twitter bio, it'll be published once it's been marked. I can't wait.
  3. Tyrone has been on the wind up with Evelyn for a while, insinuating that his nan's getting her hole. It always makes me smile.
  4. Nope. Couldn't find it on YouTube or Daily Motion either.
  5. First time in a long time I've watched something and been gutted when it finished.
  6. If that link's right, I'm surprised it took the SPFL an hour to respond and, their shade of putting dossier in quotes entirely justified.
  7. Rosalind is a fucking nightmare. ETA: Kinda fell in love with Sally during that week. Was already in love with Aisling.
  8. I never thought I'd say this, but I hate that Tim's Fucking Dad got stabbed in the throat with a broken bottle because you can just see the producers reach for the playbook of Wrongly Accused Woman storylines. This storyline was been carefully planned, wonderfully written, and acted brilliantly. It deserved so much better.
  9. It has been criticised by some people who were involved including Chris Tarrant as being heavily biased in favour of making it seem they were innocent (or at least that there was some doubt) but yeah, it was a good wee series. It might have been good to make it a 4 parter to hear more of the court case. In the original play, the audience were given key pads and were the "jury" at the end to determine their guilt or innocence but if they only heard what was in the TV version they'd probably always get off. I guess when they dedicate the final episode almost entirely to the defense, it's going to appear skewed. I thought they were guilty beforehand, I reckon they still are, but I enjoyed the doubt. Wasn't expecting that.
  10. Managed to get the VPN up long enough to binge on Quiz. Fucking hell! Fantastic bit of TV. Plus, I didn't expect it to cloud my view on how obviously guilty they all were. Fabulous as ever is Michael Sheen, but I thought Sian Clifford and Matthew Macfadyen as the Ingrams stole the show. Also, Aisling Bea (wid) and Jasmyn Banks (also wid).
  11. Movie 38 (Kid #2) -- The Greatest Showman 5/10. We've started this thing in the last five or so movies where there has to be a link from this movie to the previous movie. Which means a stretch of musicals, which I hate. This was comfortably better than Mamma Mia, at least the songs were better, I just can't get all that excited about JT Barnum being the hero of anything. My pick tomorrow. I wonder ...
  12. Movie 37 (Kid #1) -- Mamma Mia! 2.5/10. I couldn't even enjoy the music thanks to c***s like Streep and Brosnin being unable to hold a tune, and the story seemed largely pointless. The missus and Kid #2 loved it. No idea why Kid #1 picked it. He hated it more than me.
  13. Movie 36 (Missus) -- Sully 8/10. Enjoyed this enormously. There wasn't a huge amount of tension but Tom Hanks sold the role perfectly. Loved the multiple presentation of the crash, even if Clint Eastwood had anything to do with it.
  14. Caught up on this today. Richard Coles, like David Mitchell and Dr Buckles, is one of those guests who could be on for two hours and no one would bat an eyelid.
  15. Movie 34 (Me) -- Airplane! 8/10. As we were about to sit down and watch this, I announced that I was 10 when I first saw it. I remember it quite clearly. I also remember quoting entire scenes with my pals at school in the following days. I don't think what I saw was a censored for TV version, I remember going to the video rental store with my dad and we hired it. So what I saw 36 years ago is pretty much what I saw tonight with my 11 year old step-daughter and 13 year-old step-son. I still find it funny. I still see jokes that I'd either missed or forgotten. According to our TV it's PG and with the boobs, the racism, the homophobia, the drugs, the sleeping with the horse, the autopilot blowjob, etc, it's difficult to see how it holds that rating. Boobs in the US will push it to a PG-13 (which probably didn't exist at the time) or maybe even an R. We all, for the most part, enjoyed it. I probably laughed more than everyone apart from the 11 year old who thought it was a hoot.
  16. It's a quote from Animal House, isn't it? Unless it's a whoosh. In which case, history fail.
  17. Movie 34 (Kid #2) -- Dumbo 4.5/10. The live action remake is, as expected, not as charming or funny as the original and takes a fairly straightforward story and needlessly complicates matters. Also, the original was over and done with in just over an hour. The remake manages to almost double that. The CGI elephant is pretty decent but that's all it has going for it.
  18. Movie 33 (Kid #1) -- Be Cool 3/10. Pointless sequel to a fairly pointless movie: Get Shorty.
  19. The episodes that go through Steve Bruce's novel are incredibly funny. Not normally a fan of Josh Widdicombe either, but he's great on this.
  20. Yeah. Doesn't look bolded. The missus informed me that he was the massive crab. That would appear to be bollocks. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
  21. I'm not sure which bit is confusing you.
  22. Movie 32 (Missus) -- Moana 8/10. Enjoyed this far more than I expected to. The animation was so beautiful and while I could've done without most of the songs, Eddie Izzard, and the Yoda grandmother, it held my attention and gave me goosebumps at the end. Lovely stuff, all the better when I discover that it's based on actual south Pacific mythology.
