    I like Southend's away end.


    QPR is the only away end that I prefer more.


    Exeter City is the worst as I've only been in their home end as an away fan.


    Have you been since the shed has been put in place?


    So much better than it was and much easier to get an atmosphere going now if there's a decent away following.

    The Tourist 


    Very slick, watchable production with an unoriginal but interesting story of a man with no memory who has a lot of bad things happen to him. 

    The first 4 episodes are very good. Well paced reveals and intrigue, characters that are larger than life and scrips that finds humour in the right spots. 


    Then it tries to explain itself and it kind of falls apart. These stories are always difficult but the methods here for revealing the truths were needlessly awkward and none of it particularly interesting. The final episode had some nice moments in it so it doesn't end on too sour a note, but doesn't manage to stick the landing setup from the initial episodes either. 




    I've just finished watching this. Completely agree. Enjoyed the 1st couple of episodes but then felt like it just fell apart and I'd pretty much lost interest by the end.


    The bizarre stuff with the brother didn't land for me at all.





  3. I wish Bluey had been around when our 8 year old was younger. I spent hours watching Peppa Pig with her, which has its moments but isn't a patch on Bluey.


    Felt a bit sad yesterday as she came back from school and someone had told her that "Bluey was for babies!"


    Pah! It's way better than the likes of Miraculous and Glitterforce!

  4. I'd missed that CGI swim. Terrifying.


    I quite enjoyed bits of Afterlife but also find it hard to disagree with anything Limmy says in that video. The video diaries were utterly tedious after the first few episodes and there was very little subtlety with the emotional side kf the show.


    It also felt like they'd run out of ideas with characters like the postman and David Earl's chap.

    Is Ozark worth sticking with? We watched the first episode last night, and I just don't like the main characters. It feels like the show's asking me to empathise with

    a man who's spent the last however many years getting rich off laundering drug money, and his wife who went along with it while having an affair and then tried to take off with all their money as soon as things went wrong.


    It was especially galling because at the very beginning you're led to believe that

    it's his business partner doing all the dodgy stuff behind his back and he's been innocently drawn into it, and the same for his wife

    nope, he's in on it, and then yep, so is she.


    I can understand they didn't want it to be a direct lift of the Breaking Bad "decent everyman gets drawn into criminal underworld" template, but I'm not sure I'm going to be rooting for a couple who I've already dismissed as amoral avaricious scumbags.


    We watched 1 and a half seasons, I think, but just found it a bit too miserable and bleak. Never really warmed to any of the characters.

  6. Oh, wow! I only checked a few weeks back if this was on any streaming services and it was only available for purchase.


    We loved season 1 but then couldn't easily get hold of it.


    Already looking forward to wayching this tonight 😃

  7. I've watched this 3 times now. I think it's gets better and better. Just gorgeous to look at - I love all the plants.


    The girls must have seen it 10 times. I think they're more taken with this than even Frozen.

  8. Our 5 and 8 year olds are completely obsessed with Encanto. If they aren't watching it, they're listening to the songs.


    The songs are very good! I love the look of it.


    Might treat them to the LEGO set at some point.




  9. Am I the only one who really didn't like Berlin? I feel like he was all over the place as a character.


    Like you, I thought the last couple of episodes were okay with a couple of interesting twists.


    Some of the stuff with voices floating through the air and what have you was quite naff.

  10. I promised myself I wouldn't get involved in Pep Roulette but I did.


    The last few weeks I've gone Foden > Gunders > Bernardo


    Pretty much missing out on points every time.


    Was convinced Gunders wouldn't play this week because of the back injury. Then he comes on for Bernardo and gets 2 assists!


    Very frustrating but completely self-inflicted.
