Re: TV/Streaming shows

Dressing them up as facts is de rigueur, give that a bash. Here's the thing, as someone used to say. It seems I have been outed as a woman, despite a vain attempt on my part to present as a gender-neutral entity on here. I do have strong opinions on all sorts of things, but I try to express them in...

Opinionated woman gives opinion about opinionated women ;) <ducks>
Cheers. It's the being sneered at every time that gets to me, so I am going to stop sharing opinions.

Opinionated women were rather in vogue in 1972, it's true. How times change eh?

You are right. That particular arrogant male voice with its total lack of humility is everywhere.

Re: TV/Streaming shows

You do have a tendency to frame your opinions as fact, don't you. I thought Giri/Haji was fresh, involving, amusing, and interesting, but that is of course just my personal taste in entertainment.

Re: TV/Streaming shows

Lucy Mangan's at it again, disparaging Giri/Haji, which started last night. I enjoyed it very much. Elsewhere though, the Guardian heartily recommends the new (!) series of Still Open All Hours, so I think I might stop looking at their review section altogether for a bit.

Re: In the news...

It seems it's OK to grab and kiss on the mouth a complete stranger on a train as long as you mean well when you do it (and presumably you are also one of those alcoholic footballers that we all love so much we let them off anything and everything, god knows why). Not for the first time, I despair.

Re: TV/Streaming shows

Since Lucy Mangan trashed 'Chernobyl' after the first episode she has become a below-the-line figure of fun, so I'd take that as a sign it's going to be a good series (I quite enjoyed it too).

Yeah, I know. The stupid joke was some bloke saying he was the Finnish president when he wasn't.

Re: They are impeaching Trump!

It's on Trumps twitter feed, of course it's a wind up. Interesting though that only Trump supporters and the right wing over here use the phrase "fake news" hoping that it gets absorbed into normal comment. "Over here"? You are posting this stuff as real, absorbing it into "normal comment". You mig...

It's not the Finnish president, though, just some fake news joker.

Re: Confessions

I think the Metro had a wraparound on the Get Ready for Brexit thing recently? I'm sure I saw one discarded on the floor of a bus.
