Around the World in 80 Days (again, David Tennant this time)

Let the race against the clock begin! Phileas Fogg (David Tennant), Abigail Fix (Leonie Benesch), and Jean Passepartout (Ibrahim Koma) are setting out on the adventure of a lifetime, starting on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at 8/7c.

However, I now have the music from the cartoon Willy Fog in my head :(

RE: [VIDEO] Christmas adverts 2021

Co-Op not spending millions this year on advert:
Co-op ‘bins’ this year’s Christmas TV ad to put spotlight on food waste

  • Ethical retailer will instead host UK’s first ever live TV advert to highlight community solutions to food waste
  • Co-op funding to double network of Community Fridges to 500, saving 34m meals from going to waste annually

RE: [VIDEO] Do you think a good quality gaming show could still work on TV?

well, that was ok, kind of similar to the good old days, I remember them doing a late night special once Friday night.

I think Rob from Consolevania etc was a sensible choice as host.

The funny thing is, there was a couple of jokes about middle aged men, who like me would be watching for nostalgia, but the guests were aimed more at today's "kids".

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

wow, friend went to London on Sunday, said they were going to go in some of the famous shops, but  they saw how busy they were so didn't bother! Said a Christmas market  was busy, but not too bad.

back at home, missus has booked booster jab for Christmas Eve, first thing, fingers crossed no reaction to it!

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

booked my booster, have to wait until beginning Jan, then missus tried to book, nothing available local at all! (IoW is only local if you're a crow ;) )

fingers crossed when she checks later they'll have added more slots

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Robee J Shepherd says...
"I like that! More!"

10:00 Friday tickets go on sale for them playing The Joiners next year, so I guess they're doing a solo tour when they finish support Biffy and Offspring.

[VIDEO] RE:What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

Whores just shared this track by Bob Vylan who I hadn't heard of before, been going through their stuff on youtube , very much NSFW

RE: Death Penalty

Isn't one of the main reasons "life" isn't "life", because there would be nothing to stop you misbehaving once inside , so you could kill other inmates, guards etc, if you knew there was nothing worse they could to you, as you had no chance of getting out anyway.

[VIDEO] RE:Markus Eder skiing

in case you were wondering what the tricks are, and wanted some analysis:

it's quite interesting see/hear someone who knows their stuff getting so excited, and explain what makes certain parts so impressive, even though some of us may not have realised which bits were "better" than other bits.

I suppose it's a bit like watching Princess Bride, or Ronnie O'Sullivan ;)

RE: Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

I was tempted when I got the email about it coming here, but will have to pass,  sounds interesting.

If it was an actual live performance, rather than Q&A I think that would have twisted our arm,

RE: Death Penalty

At trial Hayer confessed, but refused to identify the other assailants except to assert that they were not Butler and Johnson.

I'm sure there's a better/more reliable source for information :)

RE: Amazon to stop accepting Visa credit cards

you can get an Amazon Mastercard, i guess they'll get a lot of applications today, especially with £40 gift card!

RE: Death Penalty

also, who chooses/how do you choose which crimes deserve it?

then slippery slope to "3 strikes and you're out" ?

RE: Death Penalty

I wonder how often it happens in USA, too many: wrong person found guilty?

Other than that, I see your point, but two wrongs don't make a right, mental health issues, etc, but I know what you mean, my reaction to certain crimes is 'hang em'

Timothy Spall's Pierrepoint - the last hangman is worth watching

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

next door there is a family of 4, the 2 oaps, got it, as did 1 of the adults, the other avoided it!

the 2 oaps had been tripple jabbed, 1 isn't of best of health generally, but was laid up in bed for a few days, so prob a good job they did get booster!

my kids got pcr results back, negative, which is good

RE: Liverpool explosion

An explosion outside Liverpool Women's Hospital on Remembrance Sunday has been declared a terror incident by police.

A taxi exploded and was engulfed in flames just before 11:00 GMT at a drop-off zone near the entrance, killing the passenger and injuring the driver.

The cabbie, named locally as David Perry, was declared a hero by Liverpool Mayor Joanne Anderson for locking the suspect inside the vehicle.

Four men have been arrested in the city in connection with Sunday's incident.

RE: [VIDEO] Top Gear really is back!

yeh, the Eddie Kidd tribute was great, it was nice to hear from Robbie Knievel about things as well, surprisingly humble.

RE: Red Notice

that's pretty much what the film reviewer said on the radio, you can't expect it to win any oscars, but if you want some fun viewing on a Friday night then it's ideal :)

RE: Stent

fingers crossed it goes well for him, and you.

Brooky says...
"I don’t know why men in general get to
nervous when anything goes near the groin

as I'm sure you'll appreciate, it a sensitive area, but you pretty much answered it yourself. We're not used to be prodded and poked down there by medical staff, we don't have smear tests etc, so not that you get used to it, or look forward to it, we kind of hope problems down there go away on there own, so we don't have to be examined, have things put in places which are usually exit only.

I guess it's also embarrassing as your stuff is on display. it's a bit weird when you're lying there, and you're reminded you ticked the box to say "yes as it's a teaching hospital I don't mind students watching", to see  a doctor explaining what he's going to do to your bits with a dozen or so "kids" watching :)

Yes, I know it's a routine procedure for you, but not for me ;)

but we're weird like that aren't we, in general. If I had a bad back, problem with my arm etc, I'd say to work mates "i have a dr appt about my arm, i'll see you tomorrow". but if it's groin area, we don't.

RE: [VIDEO] The Outlaws

lol, I just watched 3rd episode and was about to say I'm really enjoying it now, I like the switching  between between silly sit-com and gritty drama :)

RE: [VIDEO] Lego Hogwarts 71043 - second biggest set ever

£750 for an AT-AT
