  1. There is a season one recap on Netflix, I don’t think it auto-plays when you start season two.

    MCUniverse: Phase Four and Beyond(er) **maybe spoilers**

    DaveSumm swoops in on seemingly unsupported webbing to bring the thread back to its proper place: time travel stuff! Nah, Widow’s death is permanent. Otherwise it’d be a rubbish trade: you could gather the other stones first, snap half the universe right there, then immediately trade it back for whoever you sacrificed. Widow is perma-dead, Gamora-who-remembers-the-Guardians-films is perma-dead. And I’d be shocked if Evans is ever in the MCU again.

    This is kinda why I want Endgame to beat Avatar, it’s more anti-Avatar sentiment than pro-Endgame. The film was so average, minus the visuals. Even now, very few people have a decent 3D television so that was all it really was - see these awesome visuals now, or never.

    Maybe it’ll beat Avatar after all... https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/06/19/avengers-endgame-theatrical-re-release-extra-footage-kevin-feige/

    Board games!

    I was looking to sell some games, and discovered the FB group ‘Board Game Trading and Chat UK’ ... holy shit, within an hour, I’d made £200. Highly recommended if you wanna off load the stuff you don’t play anymore, I’m sure there’s equivalents in other countries. If only it was on some other medium than Facebook, which I detest more and more with each passing day. My dream is to curate a collection where you genuinely might play any of your games, instead of having 70% of them existing for a group of people that you thought might magically come to your house when you bought them. Next purchase will either be Gloomhaven or Spirit Island I think. Gloomhaven is a risk, never played a dungeon crawler and neither has my SO. But we do love Legacy stuff.

    Chernobyl (miniseries)

    That would’ve been my preference, Russian actors with subtitles. Sadly though, adding subtitles cuts your viewing figures massively and the show wouldn’t have reached nearly the audience it has.

    Evangeline Lilly was The Wasp, and she was in it plenty.

    I’m entirely happy with: by some miracle, they managed to stop Thanos. It was 14million to one. Anything at all that jeopardises that, like any minor detail being different, isn’t worth the risk. All this stuff is small potatoes compared to the whole universe.

    Yea that’s what I’m advocating. That Old Cap was always there in the background, I just thought it was a possible mechanism as to how he did that. Also worth noting that the Russo’s said he lived in an alternate timeline, but the scriptwriters said the opposite. It would’ve been them who wrote that he appeared on the bench not the platform, them who wrote Winter Soldier and thus the Peggy’s bedside scene with the photo of her kids, and her saying “you came back to me”. I prefer their version.

    From what we’ve seen of the time stone, it seems to isolate what you point it at and reverse just one bubble of stuff, like Strange did with the apple. Nobody else on the battlefield went back in time, just Wanda and Vision. Endgame spoilers:

    Chernobyl (miniseries)

    I wondered where they got the figure of 90 seconds from ... I mean, I doubt they’ll be completely fine. So how many years off of their life was deemed acceptable?

    Chernobyl (miniseries)

    Yes, he was and he did. They don’t know for sure that he killed himself at that exact time, but it was so close to it and on the anniversary that they assumed it was intentional. That’s why the first time stamp says “two years and one minute earlier”.

    Black Mirror - Spoilers after the first post

    The first two seasons were three episodes, and were a fair bit stronger I’d say. I’m glad it’s this length.

    Star Trek: Picard

    Also, they all made plenty of money. It’s not like they’re all sitting around asking “why, why, did we give the franchise to JJ?” Then they gave him Star Wars, and that made loads of money. Nobody’s regretting hiring JJ.

    Star Trek: Picard

    I’d be surprised if anyone said “oh, you mean when Spock and that mining ship mysteriously disappeared?”, you’re probably free to imagine Romulus was destroyed in the prime, the end.

    Zemo and Peggy’s niece possibly starring in the Falcon and Winter Soldier mini-series.

    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    So we’re all OK with the milkshaking? I’m not gonna lose any sleep over it, it’s kinda funny to see Farage get hit. But really, this isn’t a defendable position ... if Tommy Robinson threw a milkshake at a Muslim, we’d be up in arms. The only difference is we all think Farage and Robinson are pricks. But surely we have to accept anything we’re willing to give, if milkshake throwing is good for us it’s good for everyone? We get a cheap laugh out of it, but we’re not winning any arguments here. I suspect we’re probably damaging our stance if anything.
  18. I know I’m probably asking for it in this thread, but can we spoiler tag GoT stuff please?
  19. I think there’s something to be said for something a bit divisive. At the time I liked Breaking Bad’s, but looking back at kinda ... boring. It’s just, “oh, he did it. Well done Walt”. Did he deserve that win? Sopranos on the other hand got me thinking, still thinking about it weeks afterward. And for what it’s worth, I don’t see it as ambiguous at all, there’s not an ounce of fat on that last scene - everything is geared toward telling you what’s going on. Lost gets a bad wrap when the last episode wasn’t to blame. Anyone who loved the sixth season would’ve loved the finale, it’s the solutions (or lack of) that bothered people. Six Feet Under, fuck yes. Loved that one.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    It’s only removing a stone from its continuity that creates an alternate timeline, Loki would’ve just gone somewhere else in space in the same timeline.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Not sure if you watched the whole interview (it is long, but quite good, the interviewer is clearly a fan and asks some good questions) but when I said they shut down those timelines, I meant the writers shut down the whole theory. Stealing a stone is the only thing that can create an alternate timeline, so if you leave that timeline without one as Cap would have done, it ceases to exist. There’s no rogue Loki, no world without Thanos, the MCU just happened as it had always happened. Having Old Cap be in our timeline is the more emotionally resonant option, but it just doesn’t quite work based on those rules. It’s like asking what would happen if Tony has just stayed in 2012 after travelling back, at what point does that universe stop existing if he never steals a stone and leaves? I guess it doesn’t, it exists as long as someone is there to exist in it. The only window we have is that Cap would’ve had a conversation with The Ancient One before he went back. Maybe he ran his plan past her, and she had a fix that placed him in the MCU past and not an alt past, a fix too complicated for our tiny mortal minds to comprehend.

    Sorry, I was just at work at the time ... didn’t mean to imply I wouldn’t watch it. I’ll check it out.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Interestingly, the writers disagree with what the Russo’s have said and wanted Cap to end up with this timeline’s Peggy. They qualify it with them not being the ‘official’ version of anything, but it makes sense why Cap didn’t come back on the platform. Also cool that they point out there could be two semi-super kids of Cap running around. I suspect the Russo’s wanted it this way but realised it didn’t make sense based on the rules they established earlier in the film. Oh, and they shut down those alternate timelines to which I’m glad about.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    I haven’t watched the video, but it did occur to me that nothing hinges on it being 5 years after. Could just as easily be 1 years or 10 years, so that reels in the probabilities a little.
