  1. Who's watching what on tv

    Swanson and Knope just get better with every episode. I love Knope's innocent, childlike enthusiasm, and total lack of cynicism. And Swanson's manliness, love of meat, love of freedom, and love of manliness. I feel I might rank quite well on his "Pyramid of Greatness" Knope - when she is drunk, is a joy to behold.

    Has anyone done "Secret Cinema"? I remember secret cinema getting some bad press over one of theirs not being ready or something last year, I just like the idea, and we spend a bit more time in the capital at the moment, so it might be worth a go?

    Just a heads up for anyone that might have been tempted by my telly bargain. Don't! I took mine back due to a buzz on thursday, i got a replacement set, which i took home, rigged up, and it started buzzing too. I swapped it for a fairly similar Samsung, at a cost of a further £170.  I cant recommend that Panasonic to anyone.   Also, I have been hammering Parks and Rec. Its absolutely brilliant. Very good writing, and Amy Poehler (who I had zero hopes of liking in it initially) absolutely steals the show. Swanson and all the others are great, but Leslie Knope is one of the funniest TV characters for a long time. I think I just started S3.

    I kinda did. I always used to like JH, but have found myself liking him less over the last year or so. main card was pretty shite imho, but the prelims were great. Scoggins V Borg was a great fight, and the KO in Rivas v Lahat was one of the most brutal I have seen since Uriah Hall levelled Adam Cella on TUF.

    Benson Henderson has signed with Bellator. Not surprised, he will be a much bigger fish in that smaller pool. The Reebok deal really is fucking the middle tier fighters over.

    Roth was hamming it up - well his character was, because during "the four passengers" chapter, he was as "cockney geezer" as they come. finished it yesterday - loved it.

    I lent my copy to my daughters bf just before xmas, and I havent even bothered asking him for it back. I've not looked into the player numbers but I reckon it must have dropped down the active player charts drastically by now!

    see thats what I like about Tarantino, the fact that stuff takes ages, the door in the haberdashery, the making of coffee, the telling of stories, the serving up of the stew. obviously i havent finished it yet, so cant give my full opinion right now, but theres nothing I dislike so far.

    So whats with the cryptic review of hateful 8 Slm? Did you like it or not? I watched the first 2 hours on the train on thursday, and thoroughly enjoyed it thus far. I obviously have about 45 minutes left.

    shes not the first to choose bellator over UFC, and zuffa are well aware of the talent's perception of their terms. it will get worse (for zuffa) over coming years, but ultimately they have the brand, and will pull through just fine. mcgregor wont do shit without zuffa behind him, MMA is a minority sport in the USA, in europe its probably just one rank above pro-am tiddlywinks. he might manage one croke park gig on his own (who else would be on the card? all the other irish names are signed with UFC, and they are mostly shite), after that, it will be tumbleweed all the way.

    i think thats totally unfair. its well acted, well shot, well lit, well edited. how can you say its badly made? writing is subjective, its not a million miles away from the original series. i didnt like it, but i can't say its shite.

    I thought Lucy was a great idea that just fell down in its delivery, and Mad Max was one of those films you want to like, but it was just so relentless that it feels like being attacked by a mob.   in other news, people are talking about Joseph Feinnes being cast to play Michael jackson, dunno if its a hoax or not to raise some heckles in black hollywood?

    well the new x-files didnt grab me. ive never been a big scifi fan, but always kinda liked the conspiracy theory angle. episode 1 was OK'ish, then episode two lost me about halfway through. we paused it for a loo break for mrs t8y, and I went to bed rather than finish it. some might like it, but its just not my kind of thing any more. interested to hear other peoples thoughts.

    no-one so far. stipe will be gutted, he finally gets the title shot and it looks like cain v werdum will be back as the made fight when they are both ready. hendricks looks like the main fight now, although not officially listed as headliner yet.

    werdum has withdrawn now. the HW class needs a large injection of talent. with so many ww's and mw's, either a TUF heavyweights, or a swoop on bellator etc is in order.
