    I had the pleasure of going to the Ginstitute in Portobelllo Road for an afternoon. My Girlfriend had bought two experience vouchers for my birthday and we finally got to use them It was extremely interesting and funny, where you learned the history of this delicious drink while also consuming a few, then go and learn about all the botanicals that go into gin and eventually make your own unique flavour of gin. You leave the place with a bottle of their own gin and the one you made which they can recreate for you at any time. A fantastic way to spend 3.5 hours, but i would recommend a good breakfast before going.

    The Apprentice 2018

    I think no matter what happens, Claude is going to end up adopting Kayode. I've never seen so much love coming from the man who we all used to see as the biggest bad in the whole process.

    Top Gear - Series 24

    I really like Rory, his youthful enthusiasm and silliness were genuine and enjoyable and backed up by a superb knowledge of the subject matter.
  4. Apologies for the image full of text upload, but I saw this and it explained so much about Star Trek, explaining that to Vulcans, all human scientists are like Doc Brown

    The Apprentice 2018

    I would like one change after they get fired, instead of going on "you're fired" straight away, they have to earn it via a proper old fashioned Claude takedown interview. An hour of him absolutely tearing strips of the people and annihilating any hope of them launching a reality TV career. I'll still watch the show, but it's a bit of a joke these days

    Disenchantment - Matt Groening on Netflix

    I had hopes of this being another Futurama, but so far it just seems a bit generic, it's missing something. it took Futurama a little while to expand on things like the professors penchant for doomsday weapons, the tragic life of John Zoidberg or Fry's feelings, but there were hints early on. Maybe i'm expecting too much straight away, I guess it's difficult with binge series' as you have to make a whole season and people consume the lot in a couple of days as opposed to weekly feedback and room to expand or change direction mid way though a season.

    Final Space (Netflix)

    This kind of lacked any spark for me. Not awful, but not great. It was a decent background to a lot of late night amazon shopping.

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    I liked Tim Langdell's cover art the best.

    The Official Iain M Banks Thread

    I started and finished Feersum Endjinn on holiday, I've only got two books of his left now I kind of wish i could forget them all and read them for the first time again.

    The Stargate Thread

    by the looks of that picture it seems that they forgot to commission Stargate and actually signed on for a season of Wormhole X-Treme
  11. I think the German chap tried to explain that with the phrase "from what we know about quantum entanglement...." Chris O'Dowd's character did feel like Roy in space, I'm glad this was a netflix movie, i would have felt a bit miffed if i paid the money to see this in a cinema, but as part of my monthly netflix fee i don't feel to aggrieved about it. I just wanted more of the monster from the original movie, i love a good (or terrible) kaiju movie

    The Apprentice 2017

    As soon as they fired Michaela I was done with this season. You have a woman who has built several businesses that turnover millions against someone with zero vision who believed a bow on top of her generic cup of sweets made it unique, and a guy who was fired for violating the terms of his employment and going behind their backs to line his own pockets and also lied about his companies accreditations. I can see why he fired her, as it would have made the final a choice between an obvious squash victory, or a farcical underdog win, so for TV's sake they chose two lesser candidates who were equal to each other. It just makes the whole process seem ridiculous.
  13. Luc Besson scifi is a bit weird, one scene will look like tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of man hours have gone into its creation, and the next scene will look like it has the budget and effort of an infant school nativity. It felt very much like an alternative fifth element script that got its own movie in the end. I really like some of the stuff he does, the market scene and concept were great, and I like the way people interact seeming weird but that's because its set in the future and the common frames of social and behavioural references will have shifted. but it always seems to me for every bit of great scifi he produces, there is always something that doesn't sit right (like the military uniforms looking absurd) that drags it back. I had the movie on as background noise, there were a few scenes that made me rewind, but its not something i feel compelled to watch again

    Hey Arnold

    Every time I see this thread title the words "Move it football head!" pop into my brain.

    The Apprentice 2017

    This show is less of the ultimate job interview, it's now more like a team building exercise in Pembroke gone horribly wrong.
