  1. Makes you wonder who was laughing at that one. It’s so ugly. I suspect, on the basis of no evidence, that it could be a Weinstein reference. And not meant to be funny. Some journalist could ask. 🤪
  2. Yes. Unsavoury laughs. The misfortunes of young women falling into bad situations are poor joke fodder. One step away from a Criminal Minds cold open. So many steps too far for light family comedy. What were they thinking? They could carry off a good fart joke though. Cruciferous Vegetables was very funny.
  3. Hey there. Wow. I ducked back in for a look and saw the “Luther” issue got a bump. From 2013. I’d just like to add still I wonder how much it was the writers entertaining themselves, or some editorially embedded misogyny, or some unconsciously embedded misogyny, or if they thought they were pandering to some market demand. Or that it was comedy serving a higher purpose, holding up a mirror to reflect some of the truths about how people behave badly (grab ‘em... etc). The show didn’t do much signalling, so it was perhaps just something unsavoury that leaked out.
  4. Two out of three. For harmlessness try “Death in Paradise”. It’s very benign, except for the deaths, of course. I like to watch it for the sunburned Brit guest actors who forgot their sunhats and sunblock. It’s a happy formula show with little cerebral requirement. Friends is great. If only they weren’t all so pretty, it might have had a broader audience. The one with the mincemeat trifle still stands out for me. Genius. But I won’t deliberately sit down for it. We started watching TBBT s12 again but stalled at about s12.4. Howard and Bernie do get better and better, but no one here is clamouring to get to the end. I just watched the doco Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary. That was charmingly engaging. Should be up the TBBT fanciers alley. The Tiger King thing looked too much like a car crash for me to engage with. Makes some regulation look sensible. Otherwise, most of my media consumption is about hoping for the sciences to catch up with our problems and wondering if the USA’s president is taking his own medical advice and when we will see the effects.
  5. Another belated birthday wish. Stay well and indoors. and... I’ve still not watched the last episodes. They are on the DVR. Maybe soon. Also, good luck everyone.
  6. I still haven’t seen the last maybe five episodes. Reasons: Keeping the fires banked... waiting for Netflix... being in denial... waiting for the impeachment show to be over... otherwise general procrastination. It no longer seems urgent, just something on the list. L/P never held that pillow down or climbed over the wall to escape, they just waited him out. Not a dramatic crescendo, really. It reads like they just stopped. I had foolishly, and without reason, hoped for some demonstrations of gumption. But if when I watch it and it lights some fire , I might come back to rail. (Otherwise my spouse has to hear it all, and golly, she’s over it.)
  7. I can remember being under age 7 and hiding behind the lounge (US: couch) when the titles were rolling and THAT music played. It may have been Troughton then.
  8. Much of what people need to know about The Doctor. I can’t find a Sarah Jane “singing and dancing” expositive. Someone should get on to that.
  9. Yes. It’s a very broad threat at the moment. Awful. Stay safe.
  10. I was reading the news and watching some craziness out of some confab in France. It made me think about snowflakes. Then it made me think of a particular snowflake [#]. I had flashed back to the return from the North Pole. *sigh* Edit: #that word has sort of been ruined (*deeper sigh*)
  11. I want my suit. The Marauder one. Just in case. The thing is people have been the same for a long time. Some people have the insight to observe and predict and some others have the insight to observe and then grab the levers. I’ve known a psychopath - she knew how grab the levers. But she didn’t get 13 years of fake “reality” show and a $400m inheritance to build a public image and gain enough public confidence to execute her scams. Heinlein. Sigh. I’m probably not critical enough myself about his works. “Farnham’s Freehold” is pretty disturbing. Let’s hope his predictive powers were off there. Its all going a bit pear shaped, really.
  12. Thanks for the clarification. I’m sure if there is an opportunity to game it, it will be gamed. Daily I read the news to find what’s happened next. Cliffhangers and plot twists every night! I’m 12,000km away. I have no idea what being there is like.
  13. That’s the whole point. It’s in the “what the hell? ” column. Why, just why? And regarding Russia. Extremely unlikely, given NATO. But wait... who wants to kill that again. Starts with T. Crazy. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/08/trump-defects-autocrats/596518/
  14. I read that just getting the trucks with food and necessities across the Channel will be challenging, just because they will have stop and park for customs checks. 20km queues. The modern economy is built on “just in time” supply chains. This breaks the chains. And who knows what troubles will again arise in Northern Ireland. It’s not like there’s history or anything. It’s very vexed. November 1 is coming quickly for the UK. And then there’s next November. Plus, the inverted yield curve occurrence. And the Greenland thing. It goes on. It’s all too weird. Edit: And as others were speaking of American constitutional amendments, I understand the 25th has been evaded, because there isn’t a quorum of senate confirmed cabinet members, even if the intent could coalesce. “I like acting”. Rat cunning, right there.
  15. I understand it’s a bit tricky, being, I think, that it’s a consequence of having slavery as a national institution. Hard to untangle, I believe. That’s not so common elsewhere. Again, whole other country.
