What’s the matter?  Too challenging for ya?

I'm pleased to see someone's finally been brave enough to have a go at the bloody snowflakes.

Comedy Chat / Re: Ted Lasso Season 2

Bollocks, there are too, I only thought there were 10, it was those 2 extra ones that threw me. Not sure I can keep going that long. Season 3 is already in the works too.

Not really into this show, but I started it so I’ll finish at least this season. But, this week’s episode was manure. Not only was it out of place and unwelcome, but it had “dream episode” vibes and I never like dream episodes. This episode felt like a room of hack writers just finished watching Dave and thought they’d have a crack and being interesting. They failed.

All I know about Carrot Top is that he provided one of the DVD commentaries for the film The Rules Of Attraction.[1]

I hate The Snowmen. It's Clara, and by extension Moffat, at their most smarmy and obnoxious. Probably the only Moffat episode I really dislike.

What is point nuclear submarine without nuclear missiles?
Quite.  I'm not sure either.  They are handy for launching off cruise missiles from just off the enemy toast like they did in the Gulf War, but it seems a really fucking expensive way to do it unless you add on 'oh and we can turn North Korea into glass' as well.

Also it's not a great idea for Australia to stick their necks out in terms of nuclear war.  On one side not that many people live there (IIRC there's more people living in London and Birmingham than the entirety of Australia) but the ones that are here are all bunched together and perfect for a couple of MIRVs raining down.

I've seen 'On The Beach', I know how it's going to go down.  If you'll excuse me I've got a race in my vintage Ferrari to go to.

Idlewild - In Remote Part / Scottish Fiction

https://youtu.be/9HzPPrg0OE4



I think we've been introduced to Idlewild already in our list so suffice to say this is taken from their fourth album, "The Remote Part". it features the lovely tones of Scottish poet Edwin Morgan.

I get that, but it's the only time he ever behaves like that. He recognises the Macra immediately, for example.

Different Doctor, different memories knocking around. There's s line somewhere from, I think either Smith or Capaldi, about how memories can get jumbled up from incarnation to incarnation.

Also, a big fuck-off crab is instantly memorable, whereas in The Snowmen he's dealing with a creature that is presenting itself in a different form to the one he was familiar with before.

(Also, god I'm an idiot - I only just made the snowmen/abominable snowman/yeti connection.)
