  1. Where I am we're still ok fortunately, I think if we manage the next 48 hrs we'll be ok. Sorry for not posting anything I've been a bit manic moving everything upstairs and done a bit of volunteering at the sports hall. The community has pulled together really, we just need to hope the water doesn't spill across Pontefract Road at the low point after the school, though I believe they started sandbagging that last night.
  2. Yes it was! Also marked undeservingly as was one of the most unsuccessful movies of all time. I enjoyed it though.
  3. Just read the the author Clive Custler has passed away. I loved the Dirk Pitt novels when I was younger. His books were always fun.
  4. Well I was raising money for Fishlake before Christmas and now it’s my town on the news! i hope everyone here is safe! For me at the moment this is all precautionary as things will have to be really bad to hit me. Since they’ve given me some, sandbags hooooo
  5. I must have missed it? I only watched Killjoys after Dark Matter ended. Like Killjoys it wasn’t groundbreaking but was a lot of fun. Does the sci-fi channel make any sci-fi anymore?
  6. And several actors who have zero chemistry but have to interact
  7. I’m not totally enamoured. The sci-fi channel seem to have said “let’s do Harry Potter but make them a bit older so there’s sex!”
  8. Watched the finale of Killjoys last night. Overall not ground breaking sci-fi but really fun and ended on exactly the right note. Seems like my wife now wants us to catch up on the Magicians... we’ll see. We also watched the first Bear Grill’s dropping people on a remote island with drops of money to see what happens (forgot the exact title). It seems the rich Lord has teamed up with the military while the ‘little’ people do the work to get water while not realising they’re being shafted. A great analogy for modern Britain if ever there was one.
  9. I've started watching Carnival Row on Prime and its fairly good. I think the makers must have really liked Black Sails (if they aren't the same people) as, though the theme and the tone are a bit darker (touching dare I say on Lovecraftian influences) it probably has the same ratio of action to gratuitous sex scenes and the intro is very similar.
  10. Just finished you vs wild on Netflix with Bear Grills. It’s kind of a choose you fate thing with you selecting what Bear does next. The kids have loved it and learned quite a bit about survival although I suspect from the amount of times we’ve nearly killed him I might not be allowed to be a scout leader. That said if anyone had told me one of the options would end up with Bear sleeping with a sheep I’d never have believed you.
  11. Tragic news and my thoughts are with his family and friends.
  12. Just finished the Boys. It’s the best super hero show on tv. Ok that’s not the highest bar in the world, but it’s probably the best by some way.
  13. I certainly wasn’t. I may disagree with leave voters and think it’s a bad decision personally but I know plenty of intelligent leave voters. The sad bit is there are plenty of leave voters that would think he’d probably have voted remain. Why hijack another thread that is in and of itself an interesting aspect of modern society with yet another brexit argument?
  14. Back when I used Facebook a friend of mine was debating with a flat earther and frankly losing. He linked me in to the post to get my take on it. I just posted a link to a live webcam of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It’s really difficult to argue against that one (although they still try)
  15. Still 99.5 ? although thats an improvement in that its the first time I haven't gain since I quit vaping... so I'm looking at the silver lining here, and I guess quiting vaping definitely belongs on a thread about health and fitness. Anyway -gulp- from here I'm on 2 weeks holiday so I won't be checking in next week and probably the week after because I'll be away from the sad step. Lets hope I don't put too much on!
