The originals had no laughter track [in the UK]. Are they showing that one? I prefer it.


Sorry, but I have to say I can't remember/didn't notice. I was just enjoying the nostalgia.

Agree with Tommy about the film. Probably both funnier and darker than the tv series.

Odd bits of it stick in my mind from my youth - like the one where Trapper John spends a fortune getting suit cloth sent over so that a cheap local tailor can make him a pukka pinstripe suit and when he does, the stripes run horizontally. Gold.

One Day In Gaza on iPlayer is a tough, depressing watch.

Chernobyl is fucking superb. Haunting in places but keeps you gripped from start to finish. Award winning stuff imho, get it watched.

Chernobyl has been very good so far.

Can't help but think it could be improved by having Gorbachev look at the camera every now and again and say "We're going to have sex."
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Meanwhile, back in Westeros...

Spoiler!
... ACDC provide the perfect soundtrack to that scene...

I like it. What is it?

Those enjoying Chernobyl might be interested to hear it gets the vote of accuracy from a colleague who was a kid growing up relatively close by at the time.

Now I've got to watch it too...
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I visited Chernobyl last year, so I must download this from somewhere, judging by all the positive feedback.

Just binge-watched over a couple of days. Bit more from Gran and Grandad this time, which I liked. Good scenes with sad/dimwit son and horrible Pauline in last couple of episodes. Overall, v good indeed.


Spoiler!
Just got to the ‘Not tested on animals’. ‘Not even a little bit on a monkey?’ scene and I’m creasing.

Binge-watched the first three Chernobyl last night. Good innit. Events might have solved concerns over EU internal migration at a stroke - ie no fucker left alive east of Germany.

Just watched the first episode of Chernobyl. Just excellent.

As someone who works in the industry it’s startling. The bit at the start of episode 2 where the scientists opened the windows, is, as I’ve heard, pretty close to how we discovered something happened in this country... every station in the country started getting hits on the monitoring equipment they use to monitor people as they access and leave site, they assumed there was something wrong with their equipment until they started talking to each other.

Just watched the last episode of Chernobyl. Wow, just fucking wow! Displaces The Wire as the best TV of all time, in my book anyway.
The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it.

Not seen it yet and likely won't for a while, but it gets pretty much the ultimate vote as my colleague suggested to me earlier.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.
