It seems that you and I agree, as do many, many people who have asked me what I thought- not knowing that I don’t watch anymore. On of my friends called it a ‘parody’ and a very bad one at that.
Still, everyone is entitled to their opinion and all on this forum seem to like it.
I’ve had a quick glance through the posts for this year to see if I had mentioned the detective series RIVER?
The leads are played by Nicola Walker and Stellen Skarsgard.
Ingenious story backed up by superb acting.
I’m also enjoying the THOR series. Surprising really, as the only science fiction I enjoyed, was Doctor Who and Babylon Five. Our…[Read more]
Very true. the only other actor who reduced me to tears of mirth, was Billy Connolly. Unfortunately he used the F word much too much in the end.
By the by, the scene about the magnet, should have read watch his head IMplode!
I do try to get things right. *grins*
Thank you so much for your kind words. Life is so unfair is’t it?
My OH kayaked, didn’t smoke, didn’t drink.
I smoke and am sedentary, it should have been me.
He has reached the point where he cannot walk.
I shall pop in now and then to join in Un-Who chats *smiles*
As you know, I am not a fan of continual swearing, can’t see the point especially the f and c word.
However, The thick of It rates amongst the funniest series I have seen. Peter Capaldi has this way of swearing that brings tears to my eyes.
One scene in particular about face rings etc, where Malcolm grabs a boy whose face is c…[Read more]
You have my sympathy, as does your brother.
My OH also has terminal cancer and looking at him yesterday in hospital I would give him weeks.
To add to it, he has sciatica and cannot walk.
So my dear, I am on auto pilot and do what I can, as I am sure do you.
All my best wishes to you.
Tell you what. All of you go along with the lack of a title and I’ll keep my Mrs/Miss/Mr.
To be called by my first name (which no one pronounces correctly ) by people I don’t know, to me
shows lack of respect.
When I receive phone calls from, Insurance, sales whatever and they ask is this ……..? I tell them no, it’s Mrs…..!
Up to you .
If you think of the Doctor’s speech with Missy & the Master on kindness, that really sums up Barthes’s idea beautifully. Well no, I don’t understand that, but it sums it up. I’m very certain of this And that particular speech, showing the range of Capaldi’s ability & tonal control, breaks my heart every time I hear it.
Something on which we agree.
Whenever I am sad (such as now with my OH, )or feeling off, I always watch Doctor Who
David Tennant to start with, followed by Peter Capaldi.
DT makes me laugh, but PC makes me think, laugh and get teary – thanks to Steven Moffat’s script and Peters delivery.
It’s bowel streak, a vile misogynistic little shitweasel and noted Angry Virgin. and we are more than familiar with his vile spewings – and you would be too if you ever paid any attention to what people actually said, rather than just getting stampy-footed when people pointed out how gratuitously offensive you are being.
Don’t post that…[Read more]
May I politely say, that my opinions are not just my own. Also, they are not offensive – that’s your opinion.
What I find offensive, is being referred to as a ‘guy’ whenever my OH and I go into a shop or restaurant.
Usually beginning with “Hi guys!” be assured that I have mentioned it – very politely.
This whole gender thing is, I s…[Read more]
Before I am accused of being a stirrer or offensive, this was sent to me by an avid Doctor who fan.
Whether there is any truth in it who knows. I make no comments either way, the media cannot always be believed.
See what all of you think.
Well, it must be my age, because many of our age group feel as I do. It doesn’t offend me, it makes me laugh.
It’s the people who prefer Actor for a female, and being referred to Miss or Mrs. who are offended.
I am married, therefore my title (on every form) is that of Mrs. Why people are offended by this is beyond me.
If I hear Mayor I th…[Read more]
Everyone in general:
I must be the only person on this forum, who doesn’t agree with Halloween. It’s become very commercialised, with children going around dressed up to cadge sweets. The Celts have a lot to answer for. *grins*
You are right, I’ve watched the clip many times.
Because they are actresses. Why not call actors actresses?
Mind you, I could never understand some females getting uptight about being called Miss if single. Ms is just plain daft, and mean the same thing as Miss.
Peter is still favourite Doctor. “grins”
Thank you so much, I truly do appreciate it.
We are trying to move home to a smaller house, so you can imagine the chaos. Our children are wonderful,
as I said to my OH, “we must have brung ’em up right!”
However as a famous writer once said :
“When sorrows come they come not single spies, but in battalions”
He is hospita…[Read more]
For me, Political correctness means:
Not calling people Wops, Wogs, Yids, Yanks, Frogs, Krouts, Niggers etc. Which I never have.
Then the lunatic fringe got working on it, and we get Spokesperson, Batters instead of Batsmen or woman and Chairperson – one must never say man or woman. *rolls eyes*
I could say more, but I’ll leave it…[Read more]
Thank you – ALL of you for your kindness. I shall certainly look for all the support for the both of us that I can.
We are fortunate in having three lovely children, all ready to help.
It’s the moving that’s terrifying. I won’t be able to pay the rent on a three bedroom house, once…[Read more]
