  1. Sorry to be pedantic, but it's Alan Carter and The Mark Of Archanon. Yeah, Space 1999 fan, in this episode an alien father and son are found cryogenically preserved under the moon's surface .
  2. Curb is great. Susie Green , I feel strangely attracted to her!!
  3. Interesting alternative at 9pm Sky Comedy (113). Larry David- Curb Your Enthusiasm. I love this show but never realised this 1999 " prequel " existed. Larry tries to convince HBO to give him his own show. I'll record it, watch it after final unless England are being thrashed then I might be tempted to turn over sooner.
  4. Is this understandable or a step too far ? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57774782
  5. It is hoped that 30m will tune in for England vs Italy final, plus maybe add another 5m for fan parks, pubs etc. That leaves perhaps 25m not bothering. Who on here won't be watching? What alternatives have you lined up? Here's some ideas; BBC2 -Land Of The Tiger, BBC personalities look back at their adventures in India, Bhutan and Bangladesh. Ch4- Scotland's Coastal Railways with Julie Walters. Ch5- Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - film with Judi Dench and Bill Nighy. On the sports front, SkySp 401- Golf- The John Deere Classic. SkySp 404 - rerun of England vs India women's T20 SkySp 406 - Goodwood Festival of Speed SkySp 408 - Highlights SOO Game2 followed by Highlights of Castleford vs St Helens 410 - Tour de France highlights 422- or even alternative football- Rerun of El Salvador vs Curaçao ( who?) in the Gold Cup from Texas. Nth and Central America's version of Euros. 423 - LIVE Baseball Yankees vs Astros. Add also streaming services and maybe settle down for a binge watch of DVDs. So who'll be watching what? BTW I'm watching our boys gallantly but inevitably lose to Italy.
  6. In the Chilean top league there is Everton and O' Higgins. Also two Liverpool FC's in South America, in Chile and Montevideo Uruguay.
  7. This is what we have wanted for years, Evil of the Daleks animation. Confirmation of September 27 release date. Brilliant. Victoria's debut story and a much missed masterpiece ❤
  8. With big finals shown on BBC and ITV I usually watch BBC, but not this time. ITV have IMO the best three studio pundits in Keane, Neville and Wright, their main commentator is a bit naff, but Lee Dixon is quite good and insightful. The Beeb' s Jermaine Jenas is rather dull and Shearer is overrated and although Rio Ferdinand is okay it's not enough to watch the BBC this time.
  9. No offence intended. It is difficult to get why the often tedious game of football is World no.1 . Imagine a game totally played according to the rules by genial chaps, that would be dull.
  10. Maybe it is your RL background, but people fail to understand the popularity of football. Controversy sells! The diving the time wasting, Fergie time, creating caricature villains. FIFA are not dolts they could easily stamp it all out and create a Corinthian gentleman's game, and the game will then probably be less popular. Football more than any other sport is shaped and tailored to humanity's base instincts, long may that continue. It does make me chuckle when RL fans comment on football, " introduce clock stop rule, stop the gamesmanship, send players off for diving " Yeah that'll cut it's popularity, then RL will have a chance.
  11. England matches I expect on BBC1 whatever time it's on, others on BB2, 4 or red button. Eg. Tonga vs PNG ko 19.30 Tuesday October 26th I wouldn't think will be on 1 . It looks an interesting game but as it doesn't have Eng, Aus or NZ I expect BBC blockheads to shunt this to RB.
  12. Here goes, my predictions for rest of tournament, probably mostly wrong. Spain bt Switzerland Italy bt Belgium Denmark bt Czech England bt Ukraine Semi Finals Spain bt Italy England bt Denmark FINAL SPAIN bt England
  13. Benitez interview after getting Everton job.
  14. And our lower profile. Sorry but I really think that's true. RL is a fantastic FANTASTIC spectacle if played between evenly matched teams, not so otherwise IMO. Talk about more international RL, expanded SL, quicker game, NO , get more jeopady into RL it has a chance. Back on topic, either Czech, Ukraine, Denmark or England will be in the final, that's AMAZING, unexpected, that's soccer.
  15. OT - that's why the FIFA WC IMO will never be in OZ. Also, I may be wrong, but I read somewhere that the AFL would never cooperate to accommodate FIFA, ie moving games, stadium usage etc. Don't know what the NRL's position would be.
  16. All happening today, Benitez to Everton- YES good move. Sancho to Manchester United- YES good move. Espirito Santo to Tottenham- hmmm don't know, I wanted Benitez at Spurs. And apparently Viera to Palace, with half the team out of contract and Zaha possibly going, I don't think this will end well.
  17. Yes The Triffids, I have the Black Swan lp. Best known down under band here has to be Crowded House, who morphed from Split Enz.
  18. Glad a few folks on here have heard of The Church, my favourite band. Steve Kilbey actually is the record holder of number of songs registered with the Australasian Performing Rights Association , over 1000 original songs. I judge success of a band by number of studio albums and they've had over 20 not including limited special releases. Record companies tend not to keep throwing money at groups that don't sell. Starfish was their best seller over here with Reptile as a track from it.
  19. party pooper /ˈpɑːtɪ puːpə/ noun INFORMAL a person who throws gloom over social enjoyment.
  20. Or even Southgate North London. Southgate is a suburban area of north London, England in the London Borough of Enfield. It is located around 8 miles (13 km) north of Charing Cross. The name is derived from being the south gate to Enfield Chase.
