    Our problem is Sterling and Rashford just can’t finish. Very clinical and incisive for both goals - now expecting us to sit back and invite them on for the next hour.

    Amazon Prime Video

    The whole US office went up recently on UK amazon prime video - I had already seen on Netflix before they lost it and started again last night from season 2 (1 sticks a bit too close to the UK originals and hits it stride once it deviates I found). It may be sacrilege to say it of such a sacred cow, and both shows are excellent (like Neil and Brent’s dances), but I think the US one is better.

    The Expanse - officially saved by Amazon

    i really enjoyed season 3, think it was the strongest overall for me - I always loved the political/war stuff but checked out a bit with the hokey inside the protomolecule mcguffin stuff (especially in season 2) watched the dvd extras and you see what a massive undertaking something like this is - can't imagine even on SyFy it was cheap to make - wonder if Amazon have upped the budget at all or taken over as is in terms of cost.

    Whenever somebody asks about a Nespresso machine people come in saying get an aeropress (always found them rubbish, I far prefer this American press, makes an amazing brew https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Its-American-Press-Coffee-Maker/dp/B01M4QG7AL/ref=smi_www_rco2_go_smi_g9905632998?_encoding=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0&ie=UTF8) Then you usually get somebody saying buy a low cost grinder, bean roaster and an espresso machine totally ignoring the convenience. I've had all the gear and its all been sold, nothing beats a good old Nespresso for a rapid and quality shot with zero faff, especially if you think coffee tastes like coffee and aren't looking for blackberry and leather notes in it.

    Food Prepping

    Two cooks today to maintain stocks, an old favourite and something experimental. I'm not a big fish fan but do like a bit of cod in parsley sauce, but rarely can be bothered to stink the house out to cook it. I've also had worries about how delicate fish is and wonder what will be left of it after cooking it, freezing it, then reheating. Looks like a nice home cooked version of a school dinner though in the pot and I'm hoping the sauce protects the fish a bit, found this recipe in a couple of places, the amount of nutmeg is way too high (I did less than half of that), if the fish reheats ok (I have doubts) I have other sauce recipes bookmarked which are based on wine/stock with a splash of cream I may try next time. https://www.channel4.com/programmes/sunday-brunch/articles/all/cod-with-parsley-sauce/5577 Next was these really good teriyaki chicken balls - takes a bit of time to mince the chicken and form the balls, but is a worth it. Served on a bed of white sticky rice with some teriyaki poured over, and I made a bit extra and reserved in little pots to pour over on eating, as all soaks into the rice in the pot (tastes good, just fancy some to pour on the balls) https://www.recipetineats.com/teriyaki-chicken-meatballs/

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    The Quincy Jones documentary is very good - maybe a bit long but he's got a hell of a lot to fit in I did know of his big band and jazz background but didn't really realise how big and how influential he'd been for so long Like most of these things it does airbrush him - if you know nothing of him he comes across as a bit too nice and easy going - I'd always read he was a piece of work and used to terrify Michael Jackson.

    Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    They've both acted like total fuckwits - Conor incited it all claiming to be defending the honour of his mate Artem and as part of promoting ticket/PPV sales. Then rather than take the win, bank his pay cheque, then say how distasteful it was in any post fight press obligations (and taking the higher moral ground) Khabib and his team acted like simpletons. Regarding Jones v Gus I see it as a fairly routine win for Jones - with the performance of his life Gus couldn't beat somebody who didn't take him seriously and was partying before the fight. I don't see Gus as having made massive strides forward since then, and suspect the rematch won't be anywhere near as close.

    Better Call Saul!

    to some degree (though not every show relies on life and death peril) - I just found BB pretty tedious and lacking in any tension at all. Accept I'm in the minority, just feels massively overrated to my tastes.

    Better Call Saul!

    I've genuinely never understood the love expressed towards Breaking Bad, like this it was nicely shot and mostly well acted but it was all so linear and lacking in any tension as you knew the main protagonists were totally safe and would be around next week (like the old Star Trek jokes about Kirk & Spock beaming down to a new planet with some noob in a different coloured shirt). I honestly don't know how people can even mention Breaking Bad in the same breathe as The Wire or Sopranos, which are both genuine masterpieces. I think this is a better show (if slightly too dragged out) - but it still doesn't register in my head if I think of a 'best shows ever' list.

    haha - its sometimes a good move when you've been a dick to double down on it and fire right back at your accusers, upping the ante. the UFC didn't withhold his money though, Nevada Athletic Commission did.

    they are just the London equivalent of Belters, down where the tubes don't run.

    The Great British Bake Off

    well I wouldn't suggest a whole week dedicated to it, especially as I'm not that keen on it, but its staple baking classic and you say to contestants knock yourself out, make the best one you can (with or without egg whites, your call). you could go down the ludicrous internet arguing route and say its unfair to oranges and other citrus I guess, but my point is don't set a lemon meringue challenge then ban the use of lemons, you'll get a shit lemon meringue.

    The Great British Bake Off

    I actually used to run a really big cupcake competition in the city with my sister for a couple of years - we used to get lots of entrants every month, and a few that entered as gluten free or vegan within the given theme (some were even in business doing exactly this and used the competitions as promos) - they were of course of a wide range in quality but I don't recall anybody other than the people with a dietary need, or who'd made the choice to be vegan, being taken more with the 'restricted' entries over the full ingredient offerings. It was more often than not the damning with faint praise of 'these are really good for .....' If they have a lemon meringue week and people choose to use the egg white substitutes then I'll start to concede there may be a worthwhile alternative. Fine to set a task with a recipe which just so happens to be dairy free, just seems a bit odd to me to try and make meringue without egg whites.
