  1. Flowers for Algernon. A mentally disabled man becomes as least as smart as a mouse. Flippancy aside, one of the most touching , moving books I've read.
  2. The end of the fucking world season 1 was pretty short and punchy, burned through it last week, thought it was decent.
  3. The thoughts of throwing money at another streaming service irks me greatly but that looks pretty awesome.
  4. Just watched that, some serious fan service going on again- spotted in there and it looks like at least 70% of the plot should be easily guessable.Not a bad trailer though , some nice visuals in there.That lightsaber of Kylo's will give him serious gyp one day.
  5. Yeah, thats the really daft plot armour I was referring to, happens twice within the space of a few chapters and takes what was already a pretty fantastical situation and extends it further.
  6. They've been the better side the last 10 -15 minutes of the 1st half, Ireland look short of ideas. Possibility of an upset here unless Ireland pull their finger out.
  7. The Last of the Mohicans by JF Cooper Most people probably have an idea of the plot - British colonials in America get captured by unpleasant Indians allied with the French and Hawkeye/ La Longue Carabine(oh matron!) and his two Indian NPCs help get them back a couple of times as they keep getting kidnapped.Basically a chase story set in and of the time. Which is part of the problem with this - it's inherently racist . Hawkeye's heritage keeps being distinguished from his two Indian companions to ensure that we're aware a white fella is front and centre. Uncas & Chingachgook barely get a look in character wise and other than Magua as the big bad there's barely any characterisation of any on the natives. Even the darker of the two sisters is basically sidelined and the "fairer" of the two is described quite often , possibly to give the male audience of the time itches in their britches.Anyway, it's a 250 page book dragged out to 400+ pages with unnecessary descriptions of nature/people's complexions for the nth time etc .There's also some really daft plot armour in the latter stages of the book in relation to disguises . In saying all that , there's obviously a bit to it as it's considered a classic and sections in the 1st and middle 3rds aren't bad. The Michael Mann movie took some liberal allowances with the plot and is probably the better for it IMO.
  8. So new capital supremacy map -Felucia dropped yesterday along with the clone commando reinforcement (enforcer character) instant action (offline multiplayer maps with bots) and co-op. played instant action on Felucia last night - loaded the map really quickly and it looks lovely but there's so much environmental clutter that I will have difficulty distinguishing other players and will probably get murdered on it too often in CS.Clone commando reinforcement seems decent , good fun in the 2 rounds I played. Seems they fixed the clones "window " to the objectives on the capitial ship as well so that it's a bit harder for the separatists to win, the choke points are now chokier...
  9. Ireland weren't that fantastic at all and still won more comfortably than expected.All the pundits were going for a 5- 7 point game but Scotland barely got going .Under/over training explain why Scotland were out on their feet early doors? On those performances I don't think either team will be causing anyone big any sleepless nights.
  10. Came onto Oz Netflix last week as well- it's pretty decent. Don't understand the series though, posts on here(Netflix thread) suggest there are 3 seasons but just the one on Netflix? Regardless, going to continue watching this weekend.
  11. If reading one book in a series is enough to add my recommendation to the Ketty Jay series then please stick my name against it too please , the others all review well on Goodreads as well and I'm fully intending to work my way through them.
