The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy

None too sure after the first episode

Very similar to Lower Decks

What a Dick

Honestly not sure what to make of this

But if you've got Apple may be worth giving episode one a go

RE: [VIDEO] Masters Of The Air (AppleTV+)

Up to date now with episode six.

Excellent.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

Well that was all kinds of fun.
Even one of our old boys scored against us and another broke United's twisted, shrivelled little heart.

I'd chalk that up as one of the better days of 2024 so far.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

If there's a prem team that's liable to watch us v Porto and think 
Yep. We're going down that route
It's Newcastle.
They already did it in the first tie where we got done by officialdom.

We owe them one and I sincerely hope we can give it to them tomorrow.
I could do with my weekend not being ruined.

RE: [VIDEO] The Grand Tour Season 3

Despite Clarkson's ability to shove his green hunter in his gob up to the strap I still like all three of them.
Liked May's Re-assembler and wish he'd do some more.
Hammonds car restoration exploits and even Clarkson's Farming.

Somehow though I can't work up the enthusiasm to be bothered with three men and some wheels.

Having calmed down a bit after 24 hours TBF we should have been one down in the first half and despite us having all the possession they had the better chances.
If we can't take the final result back at ours then we're probably not good enough to win it against better opposition, though better opposition would probably give us a more open game.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

The entire match managed despite Porto falling over anytime they were within two yards of an Arsenal player and getting a free kick every ****ing time.
Then we are that bloody naïve in the last minute.

Absolutely spitting. 😬😬😬

Now why on earth would you do that. 🙂

The only thing I can remember about Sapphire and Steel is the title. I'll have to go back and watch an episode or two, I think it's on ITVX.

Currently binge watching NCIS.
Halfway through series 11.

Nice way to bookend his career for me as I loved Illya Kuryakin when I was a young'un.

"the whole supernatural thing - why?  Danvers didn't believe any of it but sometimes seemed to see/sense things but it was all brushed aside and not explained."

I think they left as much as needed.
A very close society with it's own take on religion and old stories woven in to it. This can rub off on outsiders when they are in it 24/7 and I think the permanent night contributed to that big time.
Enough of a resolution with enough left unsaid that we can argue it ever after.

As for hanging True Detective on it just to boost figures.
I have only seen this and series one but they seem well connected with a deep relationship between two main characters, both police.

I thought they got the balance quite well with that in the end.
Still left enough of it hanging for people to dismiss it or accept it.

As you say though bloody good series but then with Jodie Foster I'd expect no less.
Certainly got to where I was champing at the bit for the last episode to drop.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

Get past Villa and we face City or Chelsea for our only chance of a cup.
Let's hope that's motivation enough.

Oh no it won't.
If they spent more than thirty bob on it I'll be surprised if it breaks even.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

West Ham 0 Arsenal 6.
Not just a win but a battering.
Which we owed them.
Done wonders for our GD which is now level with City though if it was head to head they'd win on goals scored.
These things could well be important in May.
Obviously I'd love to win it by a clear X points but
I'd be so delighted if we won by GD, 89 style on the last day.

Less cheerful about AWFC being out of the cup by a one goal loss to City.
Only saw a few mins of the second half before they scored but we looked to have loads of chances.
A season with no pots then as I can't see us catching Chelsea after losing to West Ham last week.

EDIT: “Who put the ball in the West Ham net, half our f***ing team did”

EDIT 2: I forgot we're still in the Conti Cup

Definitely not Prostate cancer but no admission of which cancer it is or at what stage.

Stupid Boy

Sad to see Ian Lavender 'Pikey' go at 77
Especially as I didn't think he was older than me

Used to love Dads Army and repeated episodes will still raise a chuckle.

I'm sure someone at the mythical pearly gates will holler 'Don't tell them Pike'
when Pete's checking names.

Didn't know about this clip

Still a no.
You're still going to get more people walking under buses (they already do just looking at phones)
Car crashes. You can bet your last fiver someone will be watching their soap or facetiming while driving to work.
That's just two scenarios that spring to mind.
In specific cases I can see it being useful but not for general wear.

I have no doubt that Mr Musk has a similar long term plan for his neuralink and I've thought for sometime there will be an iPlant in the future.

Where are all the conspiracy twats that were screaming about Bill Gates chips in the vaccine?

RE: Apple Vision Pro

Fine when your being followed round by a camera and obviously 'doing a piece'.

You or I put one on and walk round the town centre and we'll be in casualty talking to a PC while we're being stitched up, or worse.
From either being mugged or walking under a bus.

A novelty but even take a nought off the price and it's still not for me.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 23/24 season

That was hugely enjoyable.
Afterwards.
I really find matches with that much riding on them so stressful.

3.1 doesn't win us the league but a loss would certainly have ruled us out of it.

Took the dog out straight after so I've walked back into all the celebration police bo**ocks.

Best summed up by Wrighty

Pity Arsenal Women couldn't manage a win but I think we lost any hope of the league with the first two matches of the season.
