Ask me about the shitty opinions I have about Paradox games!


I quite liked the wipe but at the same time it feels strange seeing them making these jokes when we're living it and have to deal with the loving hubris and evil of the Tories lying to us
Especially when he's using the joke characters to try and make jokes of it.

It was funny, but not eye opening like previous wipes I guess.

Fatherhood seems to have changed him. He was nowhere near as acerbic as he used to be.

Still funny though, I enjoyed it.

I've made a huge mistake.


Normal People producers order Pornhub to remove pirated sex scenes : The makers of the hit BBC and Hulu series described the repurposing of footage as ‘deeply disrepectful’

Seems somewhat naive to expect otherwise. Should be good streisand-effect marketing at least!

I believe it's bullshit. C4 ended their deal with Youtube and the like, forcing people to go to their own online streaming service. This is part of their commercial plans, which included restricting access to their streaming services from places outside the UK (Ireland had access, I think a few other places did as well.)

C4 still is blocking a few things on YT in Ireland.
I can't fathom why they would block Nathan Barley seeing its a low tier cult series.
They are still blocking most Darkplace episodes too.

It wasn't that it was unrealistic really, it was just playing on a stereotype that was really specifically the london media. And a lot of people said that at the time.
Now that stereotype is much bigger and widespread and obvious (partly down to twitter connecting us to that bubble of people) so it actually makes sense now if you're outside of that bubble.

I watched The First Team, Morris and Beesley's first sitcom since The Inbetweeners.

Our protagonist is straight-laced, nerdy and socially awkward Matty who arrives at a new team. He quickly makes friends with Benji and Jack who are low down on the social pecking order themselves, but lord it over Matty and call him a virgin. Matty replies to their insults with sarcasm. Benji claims to have a great track record with the ladies but that's not true. He is also embarrassed by his overprotective Mum. Jack is good-natured but stupid. They are bullied by Petey, an older player and their protests about his conduct to the coaches fall on deaf ears. The get involved with hijinx that involve jokes about foreskins, nudity, poo, bums, pooey bums, stepping in poos, skidmarks, penile self-mutilation, pegging, orgies and pranks.

All great, original stuff.

Benji (or possibly Benjy) was the name of Jay's dog in the Inbetweeners iirc

So Graham Linehan's twitter has been closed after he tweeted transphobic poo poo to the Women's Insitute's tweet wishing a happy pride. After that he took to Mumsnet to whine about "usual suspects" tracking down his old tweets and maliciously reporting his account. Jesus he's in deep with his hatred.

You missed the best part, after moaning on mumsnet he got told to gently caress off for being a man intruding on a place for women. The irony was delicious.

That wasn't real. It's made by someone who makes loads of dumb fake poo poo and makes it harder to believe the real stuff, really annoying.

It really is loving unreal how deep he's gone, it's strange to see someone get so utterly consumed by madness like this.
