Re: GET TO DA CHOPPAH! The 80s actiontastic retro thread

Sorry Snowy but... During a recent interview with Bristol Bad Film Club, Steven de Souza, who wrote the initial draft of Commando 2 (which ultimately never got made) was asked about the whole Die Hard legend. It turns out, that's all it ever was, because as he tells it, there is absolutely no way Co...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

I really liked Devs up until the last episode where it became clear that didn't really know what they were talking about. There were definitely a few ups and downs throughout but the final episode was just garbage and ruined what had been up to that point a pretty decent show.

Re: The Covid-19 thread

I saw Mark Hamil posted that this March was the first March in 18 years when the US didn't have a school shooting. All it took was closing all the schools.

Re: Celebs are still dropping off....

If only he knew what he was talking about and the consequences of his perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger effect. There are sensible reasons why WHO guidelines suggest avoiding naming a disease based on the location of origin. For example, doing so reduces the cooperation of the nation where it or...

And now I can't get back into General (on my desktop) - I could only get to this thread by clicking back enough times to get into General. :evil:

Re: Forum Bugs and Errors Reporting Thread

For a few days this week I was having the issue on my desktop and my phone, but my work laptop was fine. After clearing the cache it was okay for a day on my desktop and only a few hours on my phone. Then yesterday and today I've been able to get into some forums (such as PC games) but not others (G...

Re: The Covid-19 thread

They've been very clear that the tube is running a reduced service because of the number of people either off sick or self-isolating. They're not running a reduced service to keep the tube like a sardine can.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

It felt very much like shoehorning in everything/everyone they could.

Overall I thought the season had it's good and bad bits, but was pretty Meh.

Re: Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker - the last film in the saga

Now that this is "available", I've finally watched it. I didn't hate it, but I didn't enjoy it, that's for sure. I think maybe I'm just... apathetic? By the half way point I was mostly just checking Twitter and the news on my phone because I didn't really care what was going on. I don't really have ...

Re: The Covid-19 thread

The university has been shut until at least the 15th of April (probably longer) and there's a limit to what I can do from home so whilst I should probably work for a couple more weeks, I'm then on paid leave until I'm allowed back. \:D/

Re: The Covid-19 thread

I had a similar experience the other day - our nearest big Sainsbury's was completely out of pasta except for the wholewheat varieties which still had quite a few packs left. They're not even more expensive, just healthier!

Re: The Covid-19 thread

I've had a cough for about five days now and a very mild but irritating headache that comes and goes too so I'm working from home as much as I can, though I'll probably have to go into work on Thursday. No fever though, so probably just related to hayfever season kicking off, but better to be cautio...
