Bet it's not as poor as Assault on Station-33, which I saw on Saturday...

You are probably right, but doesn't matter how well you use the material if no one is watching...

"Jodie's magnificent, iconic Doctor has exceeded all our high expectations. She's been the gold standard leading actor, shouldering the responsibility of being the first female Doctor with style, strength, warmth, generosity and humour."

Not sure I agree with Chibnall here.

I think she could have been if Chibnall had given her better material to work with.

RE: rip Dusty Hill: ZZ Top bassist has died aged 72

ZZ Top apparently went synthy after appearing on the Old Grey Whistle Test with a fledgling OMD and being quite impressed with them...

This is a track from that session:

Only noticed it as was being promoted by a number of mainstream journalists and public figures...

Couldn't they have just watched his video and hired decent scriptwriters instead?

Think we need more information on this before we jump to conclusions though as there doesn't appear to be any information on why they were admitted in the first place (i.e they believed they have COVID symptoms).

RE: Black Widow

I thought it was great, personally.

It was really funny, and reminded me of the tone in Thor: Ragnarok...

Sounds like he's been listening to the last few albums by Gary Numan and raiding Michael Cretu's Enigma back catalogue...

Get all of that and this is why the figures of the likes of China and Russia should always have been treat with a pinch of salt.

I completely agree about a large number of the public not having common sense or actually the responsibility to follow guidelines.  I also hold no truck with conspiracy theorists.

I'm the same as you in terms in social distancing, still happy to wear a mask in enclosed spaces, still working from home, etc.

My problem is the blatant double standards we've seen over the month or so...

So we did better?

*EDIT*
I know I'm being facetious, but so many people spent so much time banging on about how we had the highest death toll (not %) in the world...

"Indian Population is 1.4 billion. Excess mortality rate... 0.28%

I'd guess is that they did much the same that we did here. Completely screw it up."

Not sure that response ties up with your previous to let the number sink in, to be honest...

"Excess deaths in India last year...

I'll let that sink in... may take a while."

Puts it all into perspective, that is a phenomenal number.

What caused that? 

Is it the societal make-up, we know they have a caste system (although I don't know much about it).

Is it overcrowding, allowing the virus to spread like wildfire?

Is their public health system and communications poor?

Are the Indian population not paying attention or ignoring safety guidelines?

Is it a combination of some of all of this and/or something else?

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

OK, so last night apparently nightclubs opened again with no restrictions (certainly based on a few pictures I've seen).

But from September you'll to show evidence of a double jab as pre-entry requirements?

Why?

I'm assuming this may be a nudge attempt due to the hospitality's reluctance to open up with any restrictions.

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

"All true but still a bad decision and an unnecessary load.
Rashford was used to taking pens, Sancho I confess I don't know."

I see that Grealish has said he wanted to take that last penalty but was overruled.

Sancho, even though he's just moved to Man Utd for big money, I class him in the same bracket as Saka as I just don't know enough about him.

Rashford should have known better and not bothered with the Pogba-like penalty...but it's still just a penalty, it ain't career suicide or the end of the world. 

I don't agree with him being criticised over his politics in the same way I didn't agree with Cameron being criticised for his love of 'chillaxing' with boxsets or Corbyn for making jam or collecting manhole cover rubbings.  Everyone is entitled to make whatever use of their free time they feel like, no job is ever truly 24/7, 365...
