  1. Big Bang Theory isn't funny right? But is it any less funny or repetitive than How I Met Your Mother or the million other bland popular identikit Americans sitcoms in syndication at the moment... yet BBT provokes an amount or ire not comparable the anything else. People who hate it hate it. It's *the* thing to dislike. It's the go-to show for rubbish comedy. But there is loads of rubbish comedy! I've noticed this phenomenon is particlarly strong with Americans and I have a THEORY as to why. I think in the US, geekery is more of a defined subculture - more of an identity. I saw that shit for the first time at the dawn of Gamergate. A huge bunch of American men who define themselves first and formost as gamers - their very being defined by it. As soon as it was supposedly encroached upon in any way they all lost their shit. Retreating into nerdy subculture's seems like more of thing over there. I think being a (loosley termed) nerd is far more of a sort of separatist thing in the US for various reasons. So when they see a show taking the piss out of them, not very well, as well as being fairly simple and crudely written (the characters are intelligent, the show is not), then it must be even more annoying than just a sitcom that just isn't funny. In fact, I remember some offended geek on this very forum unironically comparing it to black face. Am I off the mark...?
  2. It wasn't so much 'where they came from', it was more that they were only on screen properly when they were being murdered. They existed solely to give a false sense of peril. It's just so lazy and shit.
  3. Isn't it frustrating when you trawl through a film or tv programme rife with plotholes, inconsistencies and outright stupidity - and you prepare a carefully contructed tirade against this crime against celluloid and someone says 'it was fun. I just switched my brain off!' Maybe people just absorb films differently to you. Why can't you just like things you joyless sod. Maybe it's an ability in of itself. Maybe they can teach us how to pull the off cord. Maybe they're all just stupid fucking idiots and don't deserve to watch anything. What are your worst encounters with this phenomenon? What films and telly do you wish you could have done it with, but that pesky brain just stayed running despite your best efforts
  4. Piss that. I was spoiled last week on Facebook now that the mobile app shows the top comment on something whether you like it or not
  5. I was under the impression that the Mountain was brought back from.the very brink of death to become this strange super half-zombie. There was never any indication that he actually died was there?
  6. I already had to fight against the grain of the universe to overcome my deep prejudices just to press play after seeing his fucking thumbnail. I'd fear for my life if I were to watch a whole video. Not for me lads
  7. http://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/reboot/256279/reboot-the-guardian-code-release-date-cast-info-and-more This looks... shite
  8. Just watched one of these for the first time and he's got that affectedly overconfident home counties Computer Exchange worker voice that I imagine everyone on this forum talks with
  9. A terrified Mario tumbling through the vortex of a frog's psyche is definitely my E3 highlight.
  10. I absolutely loved this, and I think the original is maybe my favourate film. Begbie really was badly off though. He should be a fucking terrifying but utterly believable pisshead, not played for laughs as he was for most of it, then played as freddie kruger near the end.
  11. I have been laughing basically non stop at Charlie's astonished 'I mean it's just the craziest thing...' and especially Dennis' 'it's outrageous' when seeing the bike in operation. So so so funny, so deadpan and perfectly delivered. Just such a classic Sunny. All the gang shut in a small room with a random civilian witnessing them. I really like how much they are at pains to not slip into outright homophobia, like seeming to imply that it's a gay pattern of behaviour to enjoy being roughly fisted. 'This is just the work of an extreme sexual deviant, gay or not'. Instant Sunny classic for me, after a below par series.
  12. I absolutely cannot get trico to dive through the hole. He every time turns around after scrabbling around in it for a bit. The gate is definately open. I've restarted the game and checkpoint a few times now Is it glitched? EDIT: Worked eventually.Just needed to start the commands on dry land.
