RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

I saw that. Currently 752,000 signatures. Hahaha.

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

Absolute load of old tosh. So much character development and story arcs just thrown out of the window. There should have been another series, this one to show the battles with the dead and then another to show the battle of the living. Everything has been shoe-horned into these six episodes and it sucks.

In terms of the disappointment I feel, it's like Lost Mark II.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Morning all!

How the hell have you lot let us (almost certainly) limp into fourth spot? With the luck we're getting at the moment, I'm expecting us to beat Ajax and then Barca in the final!

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

E2 was sensational. Like chess pieces being moved around a board, waiting for the end-game.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

When are we legally allowed to talk about the first episode then? 

RE: [VIDEO] The OA (Netflix)

Cheers for the heads-up. Loved the first series of this: weird and well-acted in equal measure.

RE: Alan Partridge is back

Episode 4 - funniest one yet. I was laughing out loud at the TV.

"Just watched the last 1.5 hour episode of season 7 today to remind myself where we are in the story. I am ready now for season 8, bring it on"

I'm going through the entire lot again. Currently up to S3.2 and determined to get through them all before S8 begins.

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

Don't be ridiculous. 

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

Thanks. Yes, it's on Sky Atlantic so is full of ad breaks, unless you watch on demand, of course, when it doesn't have any.

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

Possibly a silly question but do you know if those figures are sans advert timings or otherwise?

RE: The Walking Dead: Season 8

Just caught up with the second half of series 9 (or what's been shown on Fox so far, at any rate). It is absolutely appalling.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

I come on here wishing my gooner friends a good morning and all I get is abuse. It's just not on.

 

RE: Alan Partridge is back

It was excruciatingly glorious. Loved it. And as for Susannah Fielding, she gets it spot on with the Susanna Reid/Alex Jones mash-up.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Homeless? We've got THREE homes to choose from!

RE: The Walking Dead: Season 8

And...

SPOILER:
Judith knew how dangerous Negan was and yet she just lets him go free. She simply wouldn't have done that.

RE: The Walking Dead: Season 8

Same old same old in the season second-half opener.

SPOILER:
Even in a show about a post-apocalyptic world populated by zombies, it stretches the imagination somewhat that a group of survivors would integrate themselves with a herd in order to kill other survivor groups. Load of old nonsense.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

What a performance from Spurs last night.

Enjoy your game tonight. 

RE: [VIDEO] True Detective

Series 3 starts tonight, 9pm, Sky Atlantic.

RE: The Walking Dead: Season 8

SPOILER:
Unfortunately, nothing as exciting as that. Just people with zombie masks on, AKA The Whisperers.

Just so I'm clear, these Whisperers spend their lives walking around in herds and directing them towards people, where they then kill them? Righto.

RE: The Walking Dead: Season 8

Still watching but out of a stupid sense of loyalty to the show rather than anything else. It really has gone down the tubes.

RE: Haunting of Hill House (Netflix)

One of the best horror shows ever, I'd say.

Read this tweet thread from Mike Flanagan, the director, for details of how they did episode 6. Fascinating.

https://twitter.com/flanaganfilm/status/1059105688541118464

Essentially, 51 minutes of the 53:38 running time of the episode was made up of 5 takes. If you've seen Hitchcock's Rope, you'll know how difficult that is, plus THOHH was a whole lot more technical.

RE: [VIDEO] They Shall Not Grow Old (Peter Jackson's WW1 colourised footage)

Re cinema ticket prices, if you buy the cheapest possible insurance policy from Compare the Market - we paid £2.16 for travel insurance for a made up trip to Scotland - you get two for one Odeon cinema tickets. Bargain.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Wait till you lot come up against a decent team. Most of the ten you've beaten are bang average.

Anyway, moving on from petty North London rivalry (  ), here's an article that should resonate with Arsenal, Spurs, in fact supporters of every team, about Kroenke's compulsory purchase of the remaining shares:

Haunting of Hill House (Netflix)

Bloody hell. Don't watch this one on your own, in the pitch-dark, and after midnight like I did...

Terrific ten-parter. Can't recommend highly enough.
