  1. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Great result for Boro' today, about time we held on after leading, especially after the way Newport got back for a point on day one. Could've been top if we hadn't let in those late goals but happy to still be unbeaten and seeing us score goals.

    Didn't they say it won't have any repercussions because the Community Shield is "it's own separate entity" i.e. a friendly?
  3. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Well starting the season seeing six goals wasn't too bad I guess. Couldn't do much about the Newport second but disappointing to concede a pair of scrappy goals and Newport should've scored 4 with Frank Nouble making an early claim for miss of the season. Can't complain too much about the scrappy goals conceded when our first came from them working their way back from a freekick in a decent position right back to the 'keeper with our first touch being the one to take it past him and into the net and a silly penalty to concede. Still, first game of the season and a point with a few players already out injured not too bad. Hopefully iron out those niggles early as a few fixtures that look tricky early on...
  4. What Did You Watch Today?

    Yeah we went to see it yesterday on a whim and I loved it. Can see the horror comparison on that one, once they've done the set up of the three plots the tension barely lets up and you're always waiting for the next assault. Adding to the horror element Would definitely recommend it.

    LEGO Batman movie said it's all canon, ALL of it and as far as I'm concerned that's the definitive version.
  6. Doctor Who

    I suspect there'll be an element of it similar to how it worked with Bill where it felt like the first episode was "I'm a lesbian!" at seemingly every opportunity, after that it was never particularly played up to being too in your face. I'll concede I've only watched her debut once so maybe retrospectively it isn't so bad but it felt like on a first viewing all of her motivations were essentially "well there's this hot girl and...", I could half foresee a bit of that on the debut but we'll see with the new show runner and a chance to push a bit of a reset button what happens. Like anyone playing the doctor it's about the stories and the quirks they bring the character, write to her strengths and write decent stories and she'll be fine. Look forward to seeing what they do going forward once she's bedded into the role and the next couple of weeks over the top outrage from certain sections of the internet.
  7. The PS4 thread

    I'd wanted to give it ago for a while but ultimately it's coming at bad timing for me. I will pick it up at some point though.

    Given they'd essentially packaged the channels like this for a while I'm not surprised by the change. Sky Sports 3/4 at the moment is very much "the golf channel" most of the time so can see why they're going with rebranding it properly going forward.
  9. General Movie Thread

    IIRC the last one ended with him going off to give his creators a piece of his mind. From what I've gathered from the trailers is that didn't go too well and he's got to help destroy Earth to bring back Cybertron. I have no idea where the alternative history stuff comes in but I'm sure it'll be explained in a very sensible and "I guess that makes sense..." way.
  10. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Hoping Stevenage can build on last year and nudge into the play-offs but I'll be happy again with a safe campaign without too many relegation scares. Easy to forget how much we were punching above our weight with a run on the League One playoffs a few years back and just hope to keep the league status going.
  11. Adam West has died

    This is one of my favourite pages in any Batman story for just that reason. There's a place for the dark heavy Batman but for so many of us that campy fun Batman IS Batman. The cameo appearences of Tut and Egghead in LEGO Batman made that film for me, in fact that might be the closest to a mainstream revival as we'll get as great as it was to have West back for the animated film last year.
  12. What Did You Watch Today?

    A good selection there, not seen Life or Table 19 but enjoyed the rest. Sadly my quality this weekend is lacking with me catching Baywatch today... Wasn't quite as bad as I anticipated but those were pretty low expectations going in so damned with faint praise there!
  13. General Movie Thread

    Believe it would be a hexalogy, that's usually used for novels I think but guess it would qualify into film as well.
  14. Comic Book Films & TV

    It is the first world war, I wasn't as blown away by it as Jimmy but definitely worth seeing and the film that Wonder Woman needed to be not just for the character but the DCCU in general. I can't really elaborate on what I didn't like too much because it's hard to put my finger on exactly what about the niggles bothered me. If I hadn't spent a bit of the third act struggling to open my eyes due to hay fever hell and been irritated by the girl behind me kicking the back of my seat throughout - or her friend kicking the back of the other halfs head - maybe they wouldn't have bothered me. I'd happily watch it again though.
  15. Steam/PC Mega Thread

    I'm gutted the sequel never really saw the light of day. There was a rudimentary demo as full of bugs as you'd expect it to but that was as far as it got
