Is she playing Morticia in something, or is it fancy dress? Anjelica Huston had an incredibly expressive face, whereas she struggles to reflect the emotion she is supposed to be conveying at times.

You missed some pretty big plot points, but it's unlikely to follow the same path in the books. Everything past the end of Dance is moving peices into their alloted spot for the final battle. Martin has had very little input since Series 5 and you can tell.

It's alright, don't get me wrong, but you can tell it was written in a writer's room and not adapted from any substantial source material, other than what George scribbled on the napkin and gave to D&D about who wins and how.

Funnily enough she didn't have the fake tan in series 1. She's still a bit too rough for my liking though. The most bangable of the main group is easily Erin. However, the absolute hottest girl in the entire series is that Charlene who was in series 1 episode 2 (the French trip episode) right at the start, god knows why they didn't show her more often, she's fucking tasty

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.

Expanse Jeff Bezos.jpg
All current series of The Expanse are now on Amazon Prime Video.

It's a very well put together Sci Fi space action drama type thing and it's really very good. Based on an excellent book series of the same name. It's relatively 'hard sci fi' at least as TV shows go, and the universe is very convincing and detailed. If you're into space shit you'll almost certainly like it. I've been a fan of the books for years, and the show doesn't let them down at all.

It seems like Bezos himself likes the show, or at least saw the merit in personally saving it from cancellation over on SyFy. Don't know if that helps or hinders the recommendation, but there you go.

Probably worth mentioning that the fans also absolutely bombarded Amazon with requests to save the show - even had a plane towing a banner message over their HQ. Come to think of it, I saw a similar stunt before Brexit so maybe plane banners are a secret ingredient to getting whatever you want.

22558 Star Ratings on Netflix
I've used Netflix plenty in the past, but up until recently I'd simply piggy backed off other people's accounts.

For anyone who doesn't know, when you first open your Netflix account it asks you to choose three programmes you've enjoyed previously to currate your experience and what have you. So obviously, being who I am I didn't choose any and I proceded regardless. This evening I was flicking about, not having watched anything, yet, and I saw that Annilation had just a smidge under three stars, which I thought wasn't very fair given how much I'd liked it. I watched the film Arrival not long after,this. I thought it was very good, gave it five out of five stars and had another look around. While looking around I came across Annilation again, only this time it had also had a five star rating! Meaning, not only are the shows and films you're reccommended currated, so are the star ratings attached to them.

I don't know if this is common knowledge, but I found it troubling upon learing that this is the case. I know it doesn't sound like much, but just the idea that two people looking at the same listings on Netflix are seeing slightly different realities does not sit right with me. What if you brought this up in public, or on Twitter? What if Amazon or some other company that sells and/or delivers physical products were to do this? There are people who immediately watched Star Trek or something elses sci-fi related who think the rest of the populace think Annilation is dead good, when it actual fact they thought it was just alright, or do they?! We can't rely on Netflix to tell us, in either case.

This is old news. Even the thumbnails you get for the same titles will be different depending on what Netflix knows about you. For example, with horror movies, men get thumbnails of attractive women running away from the danger whilst women get thumbnails of groups of people emotionally bonding over their mutual fear of whatever the threat is. For the same film. To get you and your missus to both click on the same link, it is marketed entirely differently based upon what they guess about you.

It's all a bit of a shell game to disguise how thin their catalogue is. They don't want you to search for stuff, because you'd realise that they don't actually have very much; their clever algorithms allow them to make what little content they do have seem more impressive.


>What if Amazon or some other company that sells and/or delivers physical products were to do this?

A lot of online retailers offer the same product at different prices, depending on their analytics data. If you're using a Mac, they might assume that you're minted and charge more; if you usually take a while between looking at a product and adding it to the cart, they might assume that you normally compare prices and charge you less.

I only found out recently that people using Netflix had no fucking idea what the star ratings meant and are talking about it like it's a huge conspiracy. I knew from the moment I signed up because, y'know, I paid attention to the instructions I was given about how the service works.

It boggles my mind that it is a major news story that people don't know how to use the service they are paying for or didn't bother to find out, and it's utterly infuriating that they are phasing out the star ratings as a result, because I always found them reasonably useful.

I'm not a huge fan of Seth's solo work since I think he's a bit one-dimensional and is an amateurish director (A Million Ways to Die in the West was a mess) but the fact he's taken more of a back seat and made this out of affection gets me really interested.

I don't see why being native would change the calculation. The Prime Directive relates to pre-warp cultures which they had become a distinct example of and their knowledge was at that point a religious myth.

Obviously their culture had already been influenced to its core by contact with a (presumably) warp civilization but after hundreds of years does that change? And what could Discovery realistically do if it did decide to intervene somewhere so far removed from the Federation beside leave shed-loads of technology and let them have at it? I think it's a judgement call and Pike was right to play it safe.

Not really suitable for a quick listen whilst doing ironing, but one I enjoy is 'Those Conspiracy Guys'.

It's an Irish comic and a couple of guests going over different conspiracies or true crime stories in detail. The episodes are quite long, some of the later ones are about 5 hours.

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.

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.
