  1. Farage still seems to believe the German car industry and the French wine industry will intervene at the 11th hour to save the day.

    The Earthsea Series by Ursula K. Le Guin

    The Wheel of Time kind of does. While there is the Dark One, he's essentially tempting humanity to turn to evil. Despair was the main enemy; it turned Ishamael to the Dark One and almost caused Rand to do a certain something at the end of The Gathering Storm. Not to mention it was humans who created the trollocs and fades.

    Watership Down 2018

    I watched the first episode, didnt bother with the second and instead watched the original with my wife through Amazon prime. I remember watching it when I was 5 or 6 and getting nightmares about the Black Rabbit.

    A bad death stick trip.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    Got a bunch of stuff like Little Drummer Girl recorded but not finding time to watch it - with a colicy/refluxy baby, we tend to watch shorter stuff requiring little attention. Got last 6 eps of Nikita, last 2 eps of House of cards (downhill since season 2) to finish. Also just started season 2 of White Collar. Also watching the Arrowverse, Supernatural, Gotham, Lucifer, Agents of Shield and the Marvel netflix shows, on and off.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    My wife and i are about a third through season 4. Her first time, my second. I really enjoyed season 2 when i first saw it, as I was lukewarm with season 1. I preferred how they largely separated Chuck from the BuyMore storyline

    Denis Villenueve to direct Dune

    Its been remarked before that Stewart could probably still pull it off
  8. I spent a couple of years slowly playing through Assassins Creed, so far still to finish the Jack the Ripper DLC for Syndicate, and then play Origins and Odyssey. I played them in historical chronological order, so I went from Revelations to Black Flag to the Haytham missions in 3, to Rogue, and then the Connor missions in 3. Rogue does suffer in that like Revelations is mostly a reskin of Brotherhood, it's a mix of 3 and Black Flag. But it's still worth going through the story. I liked Unity, the PS4 bugs having been patched out. Paris is breathtaking, and I enjoyed the game, sticking mostly to the story. Syndicate is of my favourites; London is stunning, it's good switching between Evie and Jacob. I'm currently sort-of playing Elite Dangerous, though they've just changed the exploration system which I need to get to grips with. I recently made it to Colonia, and made a cool 34 million credits from selling my exploration data, and am on my way to the centre of the galaxy. Really limited time-wise due to baby, but also been playing: Batman Arkham City, Horizons Zero Dawn, Final Fantasy XIV. Just started GTA Online and Bloodborne. I've been playing a bit of Elite Valkyrie. As it started off VR-only, it flopped, but it's pretty immersive with the VR and fun for a while. I've got Skyrim VR which looks pretty cool, and I need to find time to play it, too.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    An advantage of minor characters is most people don't have expectations attached to them. Strange to remember Iron Man was a fairly unknown character for superhero film fans that don't bother with comics.

    UK Politics: Deal, or No Deal. To May and Beyond.

    The same ferry company who copy/pasted their terms and conditions from a takeaway food firm. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46748193

    UK Politics: Deal, or No Deal. To May and Beyond.

    Sort of, but special circumstances can allow for another GE election before the 5 year period has expired. May called an election before the prescribed 5 year term had expired, justifying it as an attempt to get a mandate from the electorate (ie increae her majority). So votes can be held again if the circunstances dictate. Like the Government making a fucking arse of Brexit, and economic armageddon looming ever closer.

    MCUniverse- Captain Marvel Rises!

    Oh yeah, and socially awkward Killian managing to convince someone to fund Extremis. Stark's captors failing to notice that his missile system was actually a suit until he literally blasted out with it. No one bothered to keep an eye on him? But the supersmart highly educated black girl with Wakandan resources is whereyou draw the line...

    MCUniverse- Captain Marvel Rises!

    Ffs. Shuri is a member of the ruling family of the most technologically advanced country (by a mile!) on earth, and as such may have enjoyed the most scientifically advanced education of any human. Ever. And likely has a staff of the best Wakandan scientists helping her. But you have no problem with Peter Parker in a crappy school in Queens inventing webshooters under the noses of his teachers, acquiring the needed materials without problem. This you're cool with...

    UK Politics: Deal, or No Deal. To May and Beyond.

    I think we definitely need remain included on any ballot. The prep for Brexit has been a disaster, the weakened pound helping kill an already beleaguered high street. God knows what Brexit itself will bring, especially with no deal.

    UK Politics: Deal, or No Deal. To May and Beyond.

    Name a period where Britain did not see an influx of 'foreigners' and/or have its culture (at that time) influenced by foreign ideas.
