  1. It’s still quite silly, but I am enjoying the silliness. Weird watching this and reading about the UK getting involved with more nuclear sins at the same time. I’m not sure I need all the backstory flashbacks, would have been fine if they kept it claustrophobic and stayed on the sub. The ending was nightmare fuel.
  2. Just realised that all three of Liverpool’s scorers yesterday would be away at AFCON when they play Palace again.
  3. So how much of that was in Beard’s head then? I enjoyed Henry as his inner voice, “Roid Kent” and the boatload of movie references. This seems like a marmite episode, which is fair enough given how far it deviates from the mood we expect from the show, but I think it still fits in terms of themes. The show is so good at showing everyone with these quiet personal battles. We don’t even know if this was a particularly downward spiral for Beard or he have these nights from time to time. Out of everyone, perhaps he is the one that is most stuck and it won’t be resolved this season.
  4. Happy for McLaren, must be the Raducanu effect!

    The prize money is going to be dwarfed very quickly, she already had a Vogue photoshoot before all this. Hope she gets to enjoy F1 tomorrow and McLaren might even get a podium .

    Even in an Olympic year, Emma will probably get the SPOTY. That was a fantastic match and thank goodness Emma won when she did, got to get up early to drive tomorrow, can’t do another late night.

    The women side of US Open feels like one of those sport anime this year.
  8. I was still holding out hope that John Wick 4 and this movie are one and the same.

    Really feels like a new era coming through.
  10. I don’t know if it’s just about the moment of fame getting to him; like a lot of us Nate’s got a capacity for being cruel at times and it’s always been there. Like shouting at Ted and Beard right back when he first met them, then completely changing his tone when he realised who they were; his pivotal speech in season one; him having a go at the new kit man before he realised he was promoted… those thoughts are there, it was just a matter of whether he was expressing them or not. I think I have said that I never really loved Nate but I am liking what they are doing with him now. Ted hasn’t been in the right frame of mind to pay any attention to Nate this season and I can see him doing a lot worse, wanting to have that wonder kid moment again or to keep his position, and eventually overstepping the mark with Ted as well.

    The hype on the back pages tomorrow for Raducanu will be crazy.
  12. He contributed a lot to bring the "Hong Kong Style" to Hollywood and even in this Shang Chi clip, the Jackie Chan influence is pretty clear. Jackie Chan wrote a tribute on his website http://jackiechan.com/blog/ and another of this former stunt team,Yang Sheng, also died recently.
  13. Visually that looks great IMO. And about time Gemma Chan got a leading role.
  14. Nah. Korea and Taiwan likes baseball too, but that’s beside the point. Baseball is only in this one because it’s Japan and host countries can add it, so it might be back for LA.
  15. yeah. With the push for gender equality, why aren’t there men’s conceptions for either of these at the games? Male rhythmic gymnastics in particular is a Japanese thing and can be just as impressive.
