  1. If you enjoy discussing a show a weekly roll out makes it easier. Star Trek Discovery is pretty shit but there was a good weekly discussion of each episode. If you just dump the whole lot, I think you tend to wait until you've seen it all before jumping into the thread to avoid spoilers. When shows drop all at once, there is often little discussion of specific episodes but more on the series as a whole.
  2. Is there a middle ground? Weekly does seem a bit old hat but all at once can be a bit overwhelming and the episodes tend to lose their individual identity. A two weekly, Friday and Tuesday release schedule would suit me fine. A spaced out approach does make you feel you can catch up on something if it is generating a lot of chat or buzz. You hear about a great new series, you can watch the first few episodes and then catch up with anyone else. All at once, by the time you've heard about it all all the episodes are out, people have moved on and spoilers become a proble

    Defo seems that once the season was done (which for Hamilton meant after he won the title) the drivers took the opportunity to let their hair down and hire some prostitutes.... 6 months of being really well behaved must have taken its toll!
  4. Maybe I need to give it another go. One point though is that 3 runs like a dream on the Series X. Just a shame it never had a 4K update.
  5. I wondered if that was the slight issue I have with it. It sounds weird but baking 12 cupcakes can, seemingly, lead to a good deal more variety than cooking a rack of ribs - or at least it is easier to show that variety through the medium of TV. You're told that there are all these different ways of cooking and smoking the ribs but I guess they tend to come out looking broadly the same anyway.
  6. Jammer Review which is a really good site written by one person but with comments section for each episode thankfully reaffirms the view that loads of other people hate Discovery too. It's not just us! https://www.jammersreviews.com/
  7. We're currently watching the American Barbecue Showdown on Netflix at the moment which is very similar to Bake Off format. The show is easy watching and entertaining enough, although very very American! My only issue with it is that it almost glosses over the finished product whereas we all know programmes like this are basically food porn. Bake off does a good job of keeping things moving whilst also still giving the actual food due time and attention. I defo enjoy these types of shows to a certain extent - they are easy viewing and during these times a

    Danny Ric 2011! That makes me feel old.
  9. Imagine that in a crisis situation. Warp 5, any heading. Let's fly.
  10. Slightly more complicated. She was Airram in season 1, then different actress took over Airram for season 2. Once that Airram killed off original actress came back as a human. All very strange.

    Yes, I love the morning races. You're right, 6am can be difficult, particularly if it is a dull race but 7am onwards is always doable. Morning and evening races are my favourite. The 1pm/2pm European races in the middle of summer just seem like they get in the way of a nice Sunday. I honestly also wouldn't mind a couple of races taking place in the mid week evenings, particularly if we're packing ever more races in which effectively becomes blocking out every Sunday during the season if you want to watch live.

    I'm in favour, I think, of bringing the races forward an hour although frankly, 1pm or 2pm on a Sunday is still bang in the middle of a day. On balance, 1pm is probably better than 2pm. Not sure I get the rationale on the ten minutes. Personally when I wasn't watching the build up, it was always quite nice to turn the TV on at the hour mark and get a bit of a introduction to the race. A change I think that worked quite well.

    I tend to agree although I thought he handled Grojean's crash decently at the time.
