    Fat beats for my rhymes. Mad clips for my nine.

  1. People Just Do Nothing is the best thing BBC comedy have done since The Office. It’s got the same producer which probably explains it. Think you need a passing appreciation of UK Garage to get the most out of it though.
  2. Yeah agreed. The two long form ones that stand out are definitely Making a Murderer and The Staircase, which are both incredible entertainment and good character portraits too. As a shorter series, The Innocence Files is a genuinely brilliant, thought provoking series of stories but the rest of them are average to rubbish. The stupid cat one is especially mind bendingly trashy and proper C&I channel level dreck. This is just OK. The case is a doozy and doesn’t need quite so much razzle dazzle to make it interesting. Tone down the colour grading and screeching ominous tones and it would be
  3. I was just going off on one. I think it was just everyone taking turns to do those niggly fouls you get away with if you only do a couple after about 70 minutes when they’d settled for a draw. It’s not dirty at all, just not conducive to watching entertaining football. It happens I guess. Luiz did go right through the back of Zaha which is probably why he had the hump.
  4. Night Stalker is pretty good if a little over-egged. Some nice visual bits and pieces, but lots of needlessly lingering shots of rats and bloody hammers falling in slow motion to constantly remind you they're talking about unpleasant subject matter. Also, seems to have quite a flattering portrayal of the jolly fat detective and his hard boiled partner considering what a notoriously bungled investigation it was. Still, passes the time doesn't it.
  5. Going to buck this thread's trend of being magnanimous and say that Palace's rotational fouling and Zaha's face can do one. What a bloody awful game of football.
  6. That Marta Acuna track is a vocal version of Universal Robot Band’s ‘Thyme’ which is worth checking out too. Think Marta definitely improves it though. That’s a killer Kool & The Gang track. Had this album on the other day which is great from back to front. This is a stand out.

    It would be a shame, but he could just as easily turn into a Lupoli situation. There's no guarantee he'll develop into a world beater, although he does look good in the snippets I've seen him. Even someone like Nketiah who is prodigiously talented and scored millions of goals at all ages has struggled to convert that into performances at the top level. I'd like to find out of he's the real deal at Arsenal though rather that watch him dry bum us in a future European tie.
  8. I watched the one where the nice couple converted the old cinema in their little town the other night. I'm a sucker for exposed concrete, but that was objectively a properly stunning project. It was just a pity about the spa pool, but they seemed happy. I nearly arced the television out of the window when they announced the budget though. It was a few years ago, but still, what an amazing thing to achieve for the money.
  9. They should quietly release it on ITV2 on a random Sunday tea time and just be done with it.
  10. I really loved the original series. I think it became a bit of a by-word amongst top lads for terrible chick TV ya bossy missus forced you to watch, but it is genuinely good. New York is the greatest film location in history and there's plenty of it here. It's maybe not Mean Streets, but a different, glossier version that's enjoyable to wallow in. Massive fan of the first series where they do the vox pop segments of people talking about bum sex or whatever that come across like they were just broadcasting dreadful audition tapes received straight from central casting without even looking at th
  11. I think the real controversy is a lukewarm Dirty Dancing review. There’s more to it than meets the eye! I watched Role Models for the first time in years and thought it was hilarious. It’s much quirkier than it needed to be to be successful, which is definitely to its credit and it’s got a good heart. 4.5/5 for pure enjoyment and the chance to swim in Paul Rudd’s bottomless eyes.

    Xhaka was great when he came on. He’s the most frustrating player and an absolute prannock, but he’s had more comebacks than Sinatra. Just when you think he’s finished he finds a way back. Fair fucks to him.

    Pepe has got a touch like a trampoline but at least he vaguely tries. Willian’s performance level and attitude is an insult the game of association football. I wish a benevolent billionaire would pay to buy this prick’s contract out and we can cast him off to the Chinese leagues or something.
  14. Danny Murphy has to be the most dour drip in football. He’s like opening a door mid flight on a jumbo jet but for excitement.
  15. I love that track! Patrick Adams is a genius as far as I’m concerned.
