  1. I fucking love Korean film. There’s just something about it, and this doesn’t disappoint. Brilliant fun. Only one episode in so far.
  2. I need Jeff Goldblum saying “Release the foam” as a text tone like, yesterday.
  3. Enjoyed the first episode. It’s actually really, really fucking hard for me to just start watching something brand new that I know nothing about. My partner just wacked it on. And I get like an instant repulsion to watch new stuff (I think because I struggle with attention span). Really kept my interest though. Enjoyed it. I’m a big Jared Harris fan though.
  4. My partner was a bit surprised to see Michael driving in the episode we watched last night. But I said I didn’t think he had a any sort of learning disability or delay at all. I said he is how I should be. If I acted like Michael and did not waste the energy on masking, I would not burn out. I would not struggle so much. He is what I think a lot of people refer to as a “functioning” autistic. He is just himself without the pressure to be anything else. It looks like a good place to be a lot of the time.
  5. Watching this is an absolute rollercoaster of emotion. Especially as a pretty newly diagnosed autistic person. I could write a fucking dissertation on this show I swear. It’s enrapturing to watch the human brain in some of its simplest forms almost. And the fluctuation between logic and social pressure is intense. I proper, proper felt for the cosplay girl when she asked for a break from the camera man. You could see how hard she masks and how socially relatable she is in comparison to say, Michael. So I knew she’d burnt out. And then she comes back to say she’s had a panic attack. I physically hurt for her. One thing I find really interesting is how strong Mark is at masking. Women, I think, outweigh men when it comes to that. But that’s very clearly how he is autistic. He’s very bent by the desire to be socially acceptable. In the first series you could see him literally run through his “lines”, and then freeze when he was required to be spontaneous. I think I remember he was chaperoned by his father in the first series?
  6. They are literally always a bunch of stereotypes. How much are they forced to have the perfect selection? I was literally looking around for “the weird girl” and low and behold, a brightly coloured knitted sweater vest comes on the screen. It’s like they tick a list every series. Black, Asian, fat, old, nerd, attractive, camp. I bet there are enough that qualify best for the entire group to just be old or Middle Eastern or something. But they’re forced to do this predictable diversity that just somehow doesn’t come across as inclusive, (obviously very important.) But it’s more gimmicky than anything else to me.
  7. Apparently the young vegan lady has already had to delete her social media because she owns a horse etc. Tbf, I was like “is she wearing wool?” But I’d never call someone out who was trying their best to do good ffs. 75% vegan is better than fuck all vegan, isn’t it. (after seeing pigs slaughtered with CO2 instead of electrocution, I’m tempted tbh..) Also, cake.
  8. Are you talking about the new one? I like where they went with it.
  9. I want a night out with this guy so bad. I’ve never thought Max would end up retiring. Hope it doesn’t come true, but
  10. I was genuinely gutted for Massa. He really deserved a championship at some point. But I guess surviving that injury he has coming was enough.
  11. Holy shit the last few laps of Brazil 2008!!! I love that I spent the entire season thinking Massa had won because his face was on the icon. Lol. I LOVE THIS SPORT.
  12. Well, it looks like Russell and Williams really enjoyed that at least. Clever tweaking of the car by them. When’s the last time there were two brits on the podium? I’m off to watch some actual racing now. Up to China 2008. AND NO, I DON’T KNOW ANY OF THE RESULTS.
  13. My mum shared a couple of pics with me today. Name that corner, 1978.
