    I really did not like the acting task. I think it was one of the worst they've done. I'm struggling a bit with this season - I'm not sure whether it's because of coronavirus, the fact I don't really enjoy a couple of the contestants or that a lot of the tasks are falling a bit flat, but I'm not excited to watch these in the way I have been excited to watch other seasons. Which is a shame because it started really strongly. 😕

    I haven't watched the most recent episode, but quite enjoyed the first two. I'm not really digging Richard Herring yet, and hopefully the prize tasks start to improve because it felt a bit like there were 3-4 people in each episode thinking along the same lines so it fell a bit flat. Other than that, it's a strong cast and really good fun. I also finished watching Season 6 for the first time. It's not the best season by any means, but I think Tim Vine and Liza Tarbuck added some genuinely fun laugh out loud moments like this: Asim and Alice would have probably been fine on separ
  3. Haha, good luck singing along with Jamie Foxx in the crowd. What the fuck was that?
  4. He'd be unleckie to not get a decent move after this tournament imo. It is a bit of a weird case, because he has just moved to a new club in the same division.
  5. Kinda hard to believe that Leckie plays second flight German football.
  6. Yay, The Tallest Man. Unfortunately he's coming to Copenhagen tomorrow (I think), but I didn't manage to nab tickets to him because of supreme laziness. He makes pretty regular trips to Australia, so I guess I'll have to catch him there. I'm obviously a big fan, and pretty happy to see him snag a spot on the list.
  7. Saw What Richard Did last night. It was an odd movie - like the tension is oppressive up until Richard "does" what he does, but after that it sort of peters out despite a great scene between the father and son. Even so, Jack Reynor is really wonderful in it, and Lars Mikkelsen was also very good, even if his character was oddly written. It is great to see him start to break into more English cinema. He's been good in everything I've seen him in - particularly The Killing/Forbrydelsen.
  8. Yzma (Eartha Kitt) was pretty fantastic as the villain from what I remember. It has been years since I've seen the film, but I have it on DVD in German (imaginatively titled "A Kingdom for a Llama").
  9. Haha, I could have even slipped Disclosure in! We had a moment, man!
  10. First time I've voted in this, so my order might change a bit! The Tallest Man on Earth Jens Lekman Iron & Wine Efterklang James Vincent McMorrow Joni Mitchell The National Patty Griffin Roy Orbison Sigur Rós Jake Bugg Final Fantasy/Owen Pallett Kings of Convenience Jonathan Richman Disclosure Glen Hansard Frank Turner James Blake Tame Impala Movits!
  11. My problem with the last season or two was that this whole show was geared towards the eventual climax of everybody Dexter knew finding out what he really was. That's what I'm pretty sure everyone wanted to see - we got a glimpse of it with Deb (despite it being dealt with in a fucking stupid manner), and, at least for a bit, it was intriguing television. You know, for eight seasons they did their best to make us invest in characters like Masuka, Angel, Quinn and, to a lesser extent, Astor and Cody, and you'd at least hope there's some sort of pay off. How do these people, who have come to kno
