The TV Thread


Recommended Posts


Watched S3 ep1 of Star Trek Discovery. It’s turned into a remake of Andromeda with a bit less cheese. I guess the Roddenberry stuff has to be wrung out a bit further.

I didn’t mind Andromeda, it was just too squeaky in its morals. I sincerely hope this doesn’t go that way.

What really annoyed me about S2 was the over-dramatic scenes. e.g. the last episode full of standing around in mutual admiration while explosions In space probably meaning lots of people dying in the background. And...

if they killed the evil AI, why did they still need to go into the future? And why were they still going there anyway even when they knew the AI was onboard?

I watched the entire thing in about a month at the start of lockdown though I haven't got anything else going on at the moment aside from just sitting on my backside, getting fat and watching TV. That is the summary of my 2020. 

Just had Pate aux Fois Gras. Thank you.

Currently working my way through a re-watch of Lexx. Seasons 1-3 are on Amazon.

I started season 4 (which is not on Amazon, but watchable on a free, ad-supported service) last night, and there is a cameo appearance by Craig Charles and Hattie Hayridge, who were making 'Red Dwarf' at the time.

Started series two of The Alienist last night . After series one was around a serial killer killing and mutilating boy prostitutes , this one is heading into murdering babies territory . Strong stuff but compelling viewing with our heroic trio of investigators on the case

Two contestants on Tipping Point have just answered this question. Which is the northernmost county in England. Contestant number 1 answered Norfolk, contestant number 2 answered Birmingham.

I despair 🤷‍♂️

I find it upsetting how shockingly bad people's geography knowledge on quiz shows is, especially that about their own country. I remember once seeing one and the question was to name a city in Spain and the contestant said France...

The first contestant was a middle age Scottish chap who knew that Berwick on Tweed was near the border with Scotland and thought it was in Norfolk. The second answer came from a 20ish year old female who admitted she hadn’t a clue about her own country’s geography. Hopefully neither work for Royal Mail.

20k if you get the jackpot counter to drop with a double counter at the same time but I think that has only happened once, so yes, it is normally 10k.

are you a tipping point superfan?

Don’t know where I got the idea she’d won £30,000, it was £10,000. Still not a bad outcome.

As you say the most you can win is £20,000.
