  1. Stranger Things (Netflix) [Spoiler Thread]

    you can always rely on me to get names mixed up!
  2. Stranger Things (Netflix) [Spoiler Thread]

    Now you mention it I see your point. I guess there could be a few/combination of reasons. a) the script is more focused on the kids so is maybe stronger b ) because the kids are the focus they took more time ensuring they got the best actors or c) the teenage actors (who are probably early 20s) maybe studied some of the 80s films the show was imitating and were too influenced by the era, while the young actors just had fun with the role. That said the actress who played Ellie threw down a gauntlet with her performance. The kind of showing that has you thinking she has a great career ahead of her. I'm also curious to see how the kid who played Finn does in the "It" movie - arguably similar material but the book covers some dark topics for the actor to handle.
  3. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX)

    It does feel like it is building up to something so it'll be great if we get some pay-off. I guess Westerns often built up to a key scene too. Maybe they wind up in America? That would make good use of the FX connection too. I was talking about the supernatural stuff with someone at work today when a thought occurred to me but it may be instantly dismissed if I have forgotten a scene.
  4. Ah Damn - I didn't mean Foggy I meant Happy Hogan played by Jon Favreau. Sorry! I guess Luke Cage wasn't promoted that much but he did appear in JJ. Daredevil Season 2 got a lot of promotion with the Punisher, Elektra etc. I've warmed to the idea of the franchises staying within their platform yet willing to admit they are in the same world. The movies sound packed enough as they are without throwing the netflix and ABC characters into the mix. That said, if SHIELD feature in the future films it would be nice to at least have Coulson turn up
  5. Happy Hogan/Jon Favreau is going to be in the next avengers film(s) too. Maybe the film will have a segment that feels like a mini iron man movie? I was maybe under a rock but it feels like Defenders is getting a lot of promotion while I still feel like I know nothing about Iron Fist. I get that the team-up aspect is more exciting but maybe they should have waited until Iron Fist dropped first? I guess Iron Fist gets promoted at the same time but the majority of articles I've read don't mention a release date for Iron Fist. EDITED: I don't have the foggiest what I'm taking about when it comes to side character names!

    I wouldn't rule it out. It's a happy coincidence,if not. Against it is the other Greyjoys not having wind deity names althought aeron sounds a bit air/wind like and i guess sailors like/fear the wind.
  7. Into the Badlands, Thoughts?

    WTF? Nick Frost! Doing action scenes (although that's not such a stretch when I think of his films with Edgar wright. Have to admit I can't really remember anyone in the show besides Sunny, MK and Quinn (who I think is dead and isn't in trailer). I might need to at least watch the last episode before starting season 2. I hope it's as fun as the first season
  8. Sherlock

    or the affair. Maybe she just wanted a best friend. I also like how people in the world of Sherlock all devote a lot of time to leaving lots of recordings for people to watch in the event of their death. I'm surprised there isn't a case of CDs with "when you're feeling x" on them.
  9. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX)

    True - those two must cover 90% of British TV. I rewatched episode 2 as I was being distracted by my phone on several occasions. Was definitely worth it. I'm really enjoying the style and how everyone is scruffy and/or poxed. I also love how lyrical Hardy's delivery is when he's not in mumble mode eg "The man with the Silver Tooth" (with a bizarre emphasis on tooth) and the brilliant "Atticus!!!" call out. I think Godfrey might be a mole - he takes notes at the EIC and I recognise the actor leading me to think he'll have a bigger role than it currently appears. Possibly in league with Delaney as they could be a similar age.
  10. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX)

    I did not recognise him! Are there any british shows that don't feature him? He seems to be everywhere.
  11. Sherlock

    It's one thing that has improved as other elements become more ropey. I guess Gatiss likes the character and writes himself good scenes accordingly.
  12. F1 2016

    Seems a sensible outcome overall and one that Williams has done very well out of. I'd say Bottas was taking a risk until it's clear he's never going to have a better chance. I think any driver with the exception of red bull would risk not having a drive in 2018 to be in a mercedes for a year. Like Wert says, Bottas will need to do really well to keep that seat as in mopping up all points when Hamilton has issues. I also think that Hamilton and Alonso on the same team would be entertaining in of itself. always nice to have another constructor in the mix but seeing a rematch of those two in the same car is as close to a heavyweight match up as you can get in F1
  13. I found it hard to keep paying attention once it was clear the entire episode was going to be around them capturing a spy droid. The last minute was useful but a skippable episode. Zeb should not be left as head of security again!
  14. Sherlock

    Yeah - I thought "he must be chained" but he happily climbed out once there was a rope hence my confusion. Sloppy from the show either way. A house with two child prodigies and neither could work something out - let alone their parents. It's always a hazard when having a show about a super detective that seems incapable of handling simple puzzles. But it was a fun episode that was easy enough to follow.
  15. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX)

    He's supposed tp be 20? And has a 12 year old son? Something doesn't add up - either me thinking the character has been away for 12 years or you thinking his character is 20 years younger than the actor? I like older people playing younger roles as it creates the illusion i look younger Yeah turns out they don't give a fuck about using fuck. The saturation of it in this episode made it seem less obtrusive though. And why was this person playing the prince/king? Or was it this guy?
