RE: Whats happened since you joined? 18 years today...

9th January 2002.

Two kids, moved house and Spurs are still (unfortunately) rubbish.

RE: The Premier league 2019/2020

You lot won't be laughing when we lift the CL trophy in Istanbul in May...

RE: HBO 2020

I've watched the first two of His Dark Materials and am very impressed by the whole thing. Great production values and some excellent performances from the two main female leads.


This looks awesome.

Very silly question...

How do I subscribe to Apple TV+ (the new Apple subscription service)? Or, more pertinently, how would I watch it on my telly?

RE: [VIDEO] Paracetamol shortage

In Boots? I bought two packs of ibuprofen in there over the weekend using self-serve and it went through fine. Or is it different for paracetamol?

RE: [VIDEO] Paracetamol shortage

Should have gone to self-service!

RE: Paracetamol shortage

Yep, I've noticed this as well. For the last six or so weeks, my local Tesco as well as the one I shop at in the city have been clean out of both of the own brand para /ibu tablets.

RE: The Premier league 2019/2020

I might have a little dabble in the gooners thread again this year depending, of course, on the relative performances of the two teams. 

RE: New Australian wildlife danger

Tenby seagulls are supposed to be the worst. Do a google search and you'll find loads of stories about them stealing food.

Big Little Lies

Surprised that a thread hasn't been started on this before.

This is one of the finest shows of recent years. The cast is stellar (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, etc) and the writing is sublime. The soundtrack is very good as well. The plot keeps you guessing right till the end of the series.

Series 2 starts this evening, with the addition of Meryl Streep to the cast. If you haven't seen S1, it's on demand on Sky at the moment.

RE: [VIDEO] Chernobyl (HBO / Sky Atlantic)

Wonderful TV. Those end captions... wow.

Jared Harris - just give the bloke an Emmy now.

RE: A Rough Time

Brooky, Si W was saying that this IS the forum to express your emotions. His post was an empathetic one and I'm sorry to say that you've read it incorrectly. Now get back on here and share to your heart's content.

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.

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

bandicoot says...
"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.
