    What TV Series Are You Watching?

    Started watching You, and three episodes in and the only thing I feel is that this could have been so much darker and better. It seems like a Gossip Girl version of a creepy dude story. And what terrible plot holes. He is standing there, on the road in front of her giant window and she doesn't spot him? Or he is travelling everywhere with her boyfriend's mobile phone, including bringing it to his home and he won't be caught because that? Cause Indian true series regularly show how cell phones get registered in nearby towers and therefore you can tell their positions even on a latter date. Hopefully, this gets better in the coming episodes. She is poor man's Evan Rachel Wood. Still cute though. Spot on. Peaches on the other hand .
  2. Can't blame them for suspending the search. Read that the weather is not ideal. Seems more likely that this will end in sad news. Still can't imagine how tough it must be for the family having to wait these hours, and being hopeful. Really cruel.

    Naah man, it's still technically a shitty thing to say, especially to an African. The internet is going to make sure that Sarfaraz will be fucked.

    The Good, The Bad, and The Official Western Thread

    I haven’t watched a lot of Westerns, like some here, but I do enjoy them cause there is this sense of adventure attached to them even if it is a serious movie. The original Django was my first western. I think it is very underrated, in that not many people have watched it. The Dollar trilogy is obviously great, and the Good, Bad and the Ugly is perfection, including Morricone's work. Trinity movies are always good fun. I loved The Searchers, but interestingly I only watched it after reading an article about Breaking Bad and how the series' end was inspired by the movie. The Magnificent Seven is another of my favourites. It's like a western version of all those World War movies. A group of misfits finishing a mission, kinda like Dirty dozen, Guns of Navarone, etc. I also liked The Assassination of Jesse James and the recent 3:10 to Yuma (though I hope to see the original someday). Lastly, I have to mention Firefly. It is a space western and one of the best series out there, including the movie Serenity which resolves the story.

    Sunderland Till I Die - Netflix

    Just finished watching this. Was a decent watch. The editing was dramatic, the portrayal of locals was shoddy, and it could have been a bit more detailed. Not a lot coming from the captain either. Jack Rodwell comes out of it looking like a proper jerk. The owner too. The CEO seems clueless, even though to be fair to him it seemed that his hands were tied. Simon Grayson looked even more clueless. The staff at the club, especially the chef were lovely. Also, I could listen to that player liaison officer, Leanne Bennett, talk forever. Such an interesting accent on that woman. (Can anyone tell me what accent it was?) And of course Chris Coleman comes across as a decent bloke. I had never really liked him, especially during his time at Fulham. But here you could see that there was a massive difference between him and Grayson. He seemed like a class above Grayson and a proper leader. My favourite moment was the kids throwing snowballs at the first team.

    @Azeem Thoughts on this. That's racist. Nice to see loads of Pakistanis online are calling it wrong, instead of looking at it as harmless. Even the lad who tweeted this as a joke first has apologised. Surely in today's world Sarfaraz is going to be in huge trouble. Translation of Sarfaraz's words there, 'Hey Blacky is your mum sitting here or what have you eaten today that you're so lucky today?

    @Test team Would have put Butler in there instead of Pant. Pant has done well (two away centuries already), but Butler was a different class against us and made some stellar contributions which shifted the results completely from a possible Indian win to England win in couple of matches. Happy to see Holder. Lone warrior against us with the bat and bowl. He is very underrated. @Kohli diva debate I don't mind his modelling or commercial gigs. They have a short shelf life and need to make most of it. What I do mind is his and his wife's obsession to milk every achievement and make it about themselves. There were even rumours about her being present in team meetings. And who can forget this infamous photo taken at the Indian High Commission in UK during England tour, where she had absolutely no business being part of it, while the vice captain was thrown in the last row. Same thing happened during Australian tour when the team went to meet the Aussie PM. It was an official visit and again it was Anushka in the front. She has no business being around the team.

    Movies you love to be in and why?

    If you go blind, you won't be able to watch porn. Mate, I don't think you can handle that.
  9. Three legit penalty calls (all handballs - one of them would have been harsh) not given. Can't believe some idiots online are calling it a lucky win. I thought the team was just a bit casual and the changes at the back didn't help. The break has come at good time. Get all the lads fit and go back to playing control football. That was not good for my heart.

    Guess the Movie

    That's budget Tom Hardy from Prometheus. Don't know this movie, though.

    Needlessly gets the runrate high. It's going to be come back to bite him and us, most probably in the WC (it has on few occasions in recent past). On a side note, the power struggle at BCCI between Edulji and Vinod Rai (the current court appointed heads of BCCI) is costing Hardik Pandya dearly. In a World Cup year. https://m.timesofindia.com/sports/cricket/news/difference-of-opinion-in-coa-vinod-rai-and-diana-edulji-engage-different-lawyers-in-supreme-court/amp_articleshow/67577062.cms

    Dhoni's obsession of taking every match to the last over, even when things are easier before is absolutely irritating as hell.

    Generation 'Snowflake'

    Saw that PETA ad yesterday. By far the worst thing I've seen for a long, long while. But it still didn't trump their daft 'words hurt' tweet.

    Cuisines

    Vada Pav>>Samosas for me. Not that I hate Samosas, but I can easily eat 10 vada pavs in one sitting, but too many samosas can make me a bit queasy because they tend to retain more oil, a point that @Mel81x has made. People here who like Samosas should give Bhakarwadis a try. Different food but they will most probably like it. Hard crust and spicy insides. They are great with tea. I dunk bhakarwadis in tea like biscuits. @Stan Smaller ones are good for binge eating, and you can lose track of how many you have eaten.
