If yer can't dance yer can't govern. This was Teresa's downfall. Plus she didn't have any dragons.
Dragons only get you so far. What you really need is a gobby dwarf in your corner.

Re: TV shows that are ace

What's wrong with 'if you like gripping drama like GOT you may like Chernobyl?' :shrug: So you don't think "Hooray for Chernobyl" is a rather crass choice of words? I don't think for one second that Jim was celebrating the disaster for inspiring something worth watching on TV. But it can't possibly...

Re: TV shows that are ace

I don't want to break it to you - but there is this whole 'War' genre of film that you might want to avoid. ;) Uh huh. Hey if you like Star Wars, you should check out Schindler's List, makes the Holocaust totally worth it... said nobody ever. Chernobyl is well made, it's telling an important story ...

Re: TV shows that are ace

There's something tragically wrong with a world where the very real Chernobyl disaster can be viewed as similar entertainment to fantasy such as Game of Thrones.

Re: TV shows that are ace

I do have some sympathy for the writers, in so far that expectations were astronomical and the guy who invented the story hasn't come up with his own ending yet. But it felt like they were just ticking off boxes and forgetting the complexity of how the story had been built up. And what was the reaso...

Re: Retained list.

I'm surprised at that, I honestly thought Leutwiler would be let go and a proven GK would come in to put pressure on Raya for the No1 shirt. Having said that, we haven't seen an awful lot of Leutwiler and when we have he's not done much wrong. I'd still like improvement in the GK position, but mayb...

Perhaps you're right. . After all I'm largely ignorant of baker... There have been a fair few royal babies recently so perhaps I missed the first few installments of the hilarious 'babies as monkeys' series... Or maybe there was something different this time that triggered it... Ultimately only he ...
