  1. 80s I think. This rhinoceros escapes from a zoo and it heads straight for London. And after two or three days they find like all these dead bodies lying about and no-one knows who’s done it. So, they get hold of this private detective, you know, like a sort of Charlton Heston type geezer to try and solve the crime. Now the zoo keeper happens to be a very attractive woman. Before you know where you are, old Charlton is giving the sort what for.
  2. This may be the nerdiest thread I've ever made and that's saying something. Polygon have put a big article up about the Star Trek: Voyager episode Tuvix and I’m interested to which side of the debate the United Federation of Rllmuk comes down on. https://www.polygon.com/22586158/tuvix-star-trek-memes-voyager-janeway-debate If you haven't seen the episode itself then you probably shouldn’t vote, but if you want a synopsis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuvix Anyhoo, I'm firmly in the Janeway was in the wrong camp. I remember watching this episode when it came out and having a what the funk reaction. One of the contributors to the article argues that the reason this episode is so controversial is because of sexism. Can,'t say I really agree with the interpretation. Trek had done loads of member of the crew faces a hard moral dilemma, but the problem with this episode (and Voyager as a whole) is the quality of the writing. Janeway was so inconsistently written from the off it made her character come across as a bit unhinged when you compared her from episode to episode. Compare this episode to something like Deep Space Nine's In the Pale Moonlight and the quality of the screenplay. Picard was a generally consistently written character for the majority of the run of the series. the article brings up a dodgy episode from season 2 of TNG, but I think everyone sort of writes off those seasons as they were chock full of weirdness due to being controlled by an increasingly senile Gene Roddenberry and his shady lawyer. The other thing is for a moral dilemma episode to really work the the choice in question has to be a hard one for the audience as well. Loads of viewers hated Neelix and would have been happy to see the irritating creepy space nonce blasted out of the nearest airlock and Tuvix was a complete nothing of a character.
  3. It’s an even more nonsensical argument than usual with Activision-Blizzard as when people do buy their games they still fire the people who made them (and replace them with cheaper new hires) and the profits go on exorbitant bonuses and dividends.

  5. I'm not sure changing it to a Black Widow style boobs and butt pose can really be classed an an improvement. https://www.zimbio.com/Beyond+the+Box+Office/articles/0nuq_xGDiCO/Marvel+Still+Hasn+t+Learned+Lesson+Marketing
  6. Oh god yes, I saw a bit of a new Simpsons episode where Homer was bemoaning what type of person was steal things while drinking from a mug with Ned written on it. Okay, that's a serviceable enough quick sight gag. Then he took out another item with Ned on it… …then he looked at them and said 'Oh this? This is borrowing'… …then repeated borrowing but slower and louder… …then Bart pulled out an item with someone else's name on. Any hint of comedy that was there at the start was taken out behind the chemical sheds and shot.
  7. Nice that Bezos can afford to mount an entire fake production to troll Reddit while his workers are pissing in bottles and having nervous breakdowns.
  8. No it's got a great one and people who skip the cutscenes should be flykicked out the window of the nearest top floor urinal ASAP.
  9. Errol Flynn supposedly. EDIT: Sorry didn't read full thread title.
  10. It would have been nice if Ubisoft was a freak anomaly among big publishers. We already knew that Activision-Blizzard was a crunch nightmare of a company where your reward for hard work in getting a hugely profitable product out on time would be getting laid off while they pay bigger and bigger bonuses to their executives. But they're also giving Ubisoft a run for their money in the institutionalised sexual harassment stakes, to the extent that the state of California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/activision-blizzard-sued-by-california-over-frat-boy-culture
  11. She's called Michael because Bryan Fuller likes giving his female leads names that are traditionally male and that was one of the few things that managed to stick around from whatever Discovery was originally meant to be following his departure. Dead Like Me - George Wonderfalls - Jaye Pushing Daisies - Chuck
  12. At this point I'm not sure if TenCent own shares in my house.
