    Isn't the office almost universally acclaimed and watched in the uk? Who is in this test audicence that don't get it? It's not far from saying people don't follow only fools and horses.

    You'd be amazed. Lots of people under the age of 25 will know of The Office, but don't know it. Or they prefer American Office...

     

    Anyway. There will undoubtedly be issues with this film, but at least Gervais isn't doing another drama. I'm hopeful without having any expectations.

    Poor old Cuba Gooding. Must have thought he had the starring role, but it turns out to be quite a shallow representation of O.J.

     

    Other than the first couple of episodes we're only seeing 'angry OJ'. It is one of the weaker characters in a cast full of great actors. Bit of a shame really. I'm sure OJ must have had conflicting emotions, regret, sadness, but without anyone to confess to I guess we don't see him expressing any of that

     

    Personally, I think he does a great job and the level of screen time for him is spot on. Despite it being about OJ, this show isn't really about OJ at all. I like that.

     

    The whole Martin vs Seinfeld thing, then cutting to Simpson saying how much he loves Kraymer... That's all it needs.

  3. I take it folks are up to speed with Mike Smith (aka Bubbles) being charged with domestic battery in LA?! Sounds really... odd. The woman he apparently strangled has said he didn't do that, but he fled the scene. Anyway, hopefully he didn't do it. If he did... bad man.

     

    Lucy has quit the show. I guess the whole Ghomeshi trial in Canada will have had something to do with it, not just Mike going on a mad one.

     

    Anyway! Season 10, all in all... pretty decent. Preferred it to 8 and 9.

    weird. Like a Djent Mastodon

    Their album from last year (which features the track from that live studio recording) is one of the albums of 2015 IMO.

    If you get a decent scart cable it still looks decent. I guess the issue is that the N64 never looked that sharp and it's really noticeable these days, but there are still plenty of games that look great.

     

    oh and if you've got the cash,get an everdrive. The more desirable N64 games are getting more and more expensive. One Conker is the price of an everdrive!!

    I love reading posts like this. I pay no attention to prices on retro games but love reading about them, had a quick eBay check and finally my policy of never trading anything in is "Coming up Milhouse".

     

    At least it would be if I ever wanted to sell anything... 

  6. Are Architects any good any more? I used to love that band. Nightmares and Ruin were regular listens for me, then they got a bit lame.

     

    Makes me reminisce of other Brighton metal bands. Like Johnny Truant...

     

     

  7. It probably should be like the old original Top Gear. To try and emulate what Clarkson and the others did just won't work. You will see that stuff on their show. Just make an entertaining car show without all the silliness. Great locations, great cars and be informative.

    I'd watch that. I'll also watch the Amazon one.

    I don't know if the numbers of people who watched Clarkson Top Gear will be interested in a sensible car programme though!

  8. I liked LeBlanc in Episodes, but this is hardly the same thing.

    I expect this is an attempt to keep Top Gear popular in overseas territories. Having a face who people in America will recognise to talk about cars and interview other celebs rather than Evans who, whilst a competent presenter, is unlikely to have the same kind of recognition abroad.

    The thing with this is... they sold well in overseas territories with three 'Little Englanders' with virtually zero celeb appeal. The Top Gear brand, one would imagine, holds a fair bit of cache with or without Clarkson (though admittedly, less without).

    I'm hugely skeptical about this. Clarkson was obviously a demanding and stroppy little shit when he wanted to be, but Joey is from Hollywood...

    Anyway, lets see who the others are I guess.

  9. The whole Anselmo stuff... How is anyone even slightly surprised? He's being doing this for years!

    I remember him going on about white power before Pantera split up, he blamed it on being high as shit or something?! This was pre-YouTube but I swear it was all over magazines etc.

    Anyway, yeah, he is a penis. But he has been a racist for as long as I can remember!

  10. Yep, the Minosharp that came with the knives does a perfectly good job. They could all do with a sharpen actually, but even now they hold an edge for a couple of months.

    I think I need a smaller Minosharp (my three pack of knives didn't come with one), the one I have is massive and a friends one with smaller wheels seems a lot more effective.
