There are basically two ways this can go depending on how the original pitch was done.

1) Netflix phones up Matt and says "hey we've got a few million bucks hanging around doing nothing, want to cook us up a pilot series for a new show?" The result will be an obvious load of total bollocks (actually what we've seen so far in season one)

2) Matt has a fantastic idea with a layered and self-referencing plot, a la Futurama, and has convinced Netflix to back this new vision. Hopefully, the result of this will be a fantastic show.

Tl;dr - the future of this show was decided when it was pitched, by who pitched it to whom.

I admittedly didn't watch much of Futurama past the first season but I got the impression that was a load of bollocks too. Cardboard cutout characters in a setting where literally anything can and does happen.

I don't want to drop spoilers here but there are plot points way down in season five and six and if you zoom back to s1e1 and check for.... things.... it was all pre-planned from the start, which was pretty impressive for an animated show that most people just wrote off as "Simpsons In Space" when it first came out.

I'm just doing a TNG rewatch at the minute actually. I know every episode back to front but I've not actually seen the blu-ray edits before and I'm totally blown away by how bright and clear everything is.

I'd definitely be up for some kind of discussion (here or elsewhere) about any episode of Trek (except Discovery) whenever really. I have a lot of free time and I ate, slept and breathed my old VHS tapes of TNG in particular from as far back as I can remember.

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.

The endless disparagement of "elf n safety" is a major contributory factor IMO. It's hard to believe that something as ordinary as sugar could cause a devastating explosion. When people are primed by the tabloids to see health and safety as being bureaucratic, overprotective and out of touch with reality, it's doubly difficult to persuade them to take these sorts of risks seriously. Many industries have these sorts of subtle, insidious hazards.

The regulations for this industry like many others are built on the backs of tragedy. Similar to how Grenfell will usher in a new set of rules for cladding, the explosive dust and gas regulations have built up over time gradually since Victorian mining disasters. Anyone involved should be well aware of the risks, and most are, to varying degrees.

Layers of dust are only really an issue if they cause something that needs ventilation for cooling to heat up. Ignition occurs when it reaches the auto-ignition temperature of the dust mixture. Clouds can be much more dangerous and any spark with enough energy can potentially set it off.

Sugar, flour, etc. are seemingly innocuous materials but the calories they contain are energy in joules in the same way that a battery or a stick of dynamite stores energy densely (I think?).

Or if a sudden draft or something dislodges it and turns it into a could, especially if it's high up. Or where an initial explosion dislodges more dust setting off a chain reaction.

I worked somewhere with a serious dust problem, it wasn't a combustible dust, but it was still a deeply unpleasant environment for the people who had to work in it and it still stems from the same management attitude.

Sorry to bore you lads, my dad would come home after every shift telling me that everyone in his shift would spend at least an hour pipe-vacuuming all the aluminium powder ready for the next shift, and those working the shift after his couldn’t be arsed doing a good enough job cleaning/vacuuming therefore everyone was in the shit from H&S. So this lead to a very bad atmosphere, and passive-aggressive finger-pointing from those who didn’t give a shit about the safety of others. My dad, in particular who genuinely cared about the safety of those he worked with and doing a good job of things, was one of those at the brunt of all this.

Aluminium powder is fucking explosive.

Sadly there is probably a lot of that mentality in all walks of life. Only after shit goes down do people wake up to the risks. I wonder, is it better to be blissfully unaware, or to bury your head in the sand?

One positive note is that because the sales and marketing people at the companies where kit for places like this are made are mostly incompetent, a lot of kit is approved to a way higher spec than it actually needs. This additional safety factor might inadvertently help to accomodate for some of the general apathy.

He has kind of gone to shit over the past few months but this is still a good channel for basic electrical engineering fun.
