Also general Star Trek thread, what do you think of the new movies? What setting would you want a new series to be in?

We've got a what are you listening to and what are you playing thread, so what are you lads watching?

I've just watched Starship Troopers, not realising it was directed by the same fella that directed RoboCop, and thought that the 'in-universe TV' scenes were uncannily familiar.

Quite enjoyed it though, though I think they could have done with a bit more subversion and a bit less cheese.

There's only one sequel except they numbered it Starship Troopers 3 for some reason.
It's not as good as the first but it's still enjoyable. The focus is slightly different as it's more about religion and entertainment as a medium of control rather than the original purer fascism. You can see this as it missing the point or see it as just trying to do something fresh and more up to date than the original.

There are two threads of two sequels each. There are two film sequels, and two animated sequels that disregard the films (understandable given that by almost unanimous agreement ST2 was shit).

How has a thread about this not been made yet?

My brains just about managed to survive the first 3 episodes but it's so incredibly fucked up. Episode 2 in particular legitimately 'triggered' me to the point I came close to having a full blown panic attack.

I don't remember any of the stuff in the first two seasons coming close to these new episodes in terms of quality or brutality. Though I suppose the Christmas special was a sign of things to come. I'm guessing now that Netflix have taken it up it's got more resources and Brooker's perhaps taken less of a role in production. Either way his screenwriting abilities seem to just be getting better and better.

Both they and Family Guy have been doing that sort of thing for years. On the other hand, South Park doesn't bother trying to sneak things in, preferring to just come out and say things openly, to the point where they had to write out a major supporting character.

>to the point where they had to write out a major supporting character.

The most mind boggling part of the Chef story, which I only learned recently, is that it came out that Issac Hayes himself never made the statement about wanting to leave - it was done by his entourage, also Scientologists. Hayes had suffered a stroke at this point so he wasn't able to really do anything about it.

I wonder at what point these celebrities look around and realise that they're trapped. Years too late, I imagine.

Speaking from experience, if you got abuse on Twitter you probably took the minus offer, which is a cunt's trick and if so you deserved to lose, or you were so unbelievably thick that you infuriated viewers.

22419 Down With This Sort Of Thing

A cathedral is pressing ahead with plans to show two “not for the faint-hearted” horror films and Monty Python’s Life of Brian on an inflatable big screen – despite opposition from some church wardens.

The Dean of Derby, The Very Reverend Dr Stephen Hance, said the decision to host the city’s QUAD cinema’s Fright Club and other films in the nave would not compromise the cathedral’s holiness.

Critics of the plans have claimed 1970s classics The Wicker Man and Don’t Look Now are inappropriate for a place-of-worship because of a graphic nude sex scene and themes of paganism.

Going too far lads? Some of the comments are gold as to be expected.

Found this obscure gem the other day and just watched all of it. Which is sadly only six episodes.

Made by the same team as The New Statesman and has Rik Mayall in it.


No embed because it's a playlist with all the episodes and the outtakes after. Also a really good interview with Rik. For some reason the playlist has a trapeze video stuck on the end but that's nothing to do with me.

I used to be in a band, and we didn't rehearse very much. When people came up to us saying it sounded a bit ropey we would tell them that was part of the act. Are Stew is very much just doing the same thing.

The interesting part is that he's very deliberately self aware about it, and plays on it in the act. I think part of him is rather cynically exploiting the "metropolitan liberal elite" who keep coming to see him, and he directly attacks his snobbish audience during this show.

He all but admits he's sinmply putting on an act Guardian reading ponces will enjoy in order to pay his mortgage, and thanks to the way he's cultivated the image, even being so blasé about it does him no harm.
