Re: What are UKARians watching on TV?

Just raced through both series of The Boys on amazon, great fun. The new version of Utopia was pretty good but had none of the sense of dread and horror of the original. The role of Jessica Hyde was seriously miscast as well.

You have to buy your own test to get a travel certificate. And it’s not just for holiday makers. Me and many of my colleagues in the Middle East are watching the situation closely. The other main restriction is your results have to be obtained within 48 hours of arriving at some destinations, which ...

What would your solution be then? I can't begin to offer a solution as I have no expert knowledge of the system, but I know an unfair result when I see one. The algorithm is clearly punishing certain groups. A strong government shouldn't care about criticism, you'll never please everybody. NI now b...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

What a glib response. Look at the individual stories to see the work some young people have put into this only to have their futures severely compromised. Bugger all to do with 'poor me' or 'entitlement' culture. We've had months to prepare for this, and it's a complete disaster.

I understand it can be devastating to hear you lost your place at Uni through no fault of your own, but I think it's irresponsible of the media to quote someone at such a young age saying *it made her feel like life "was completely over"* I understand your point completely, but its very widespread ...

Re: President Trump

You do realise that, as a Republican, there will be many at Lakenheath, Mildenhall and Fairford who vote for him? People don't just vote for personality or vanity reasons. I know a lot of ex-USAF contractors. Trump supporters to a man, although they're more anti-Hillary/democrat than pro-anything. ...

Which is about the time that it diverted from the books because they aren’t finished yet, and boy, it shows. Wouldn't it be funny if GRR Martin finished the books exactly like the TV show? Worth it just for the fans' reactions. I don't think diverging from the books is an excuse, it could still hav...

Wow. As much as I enjoyed it it's not one I'll rewatch. Although I did recently watch a couple of episodes when I was channel surfing, like Watchers on the Wall and Hardhome.

Finally got round to seeing Game of thrones. So...any good? On my son's recommendation I'm bingeing The Expanse on Amazon Prime. Fantastic sci-fi that was rescued by Amazon after the SyFy channel cancelled it. Great writing, production and effects. Also just finished the first series of GLOW. Great...

Agreed, have watched it 3 times now! Sky Documentary quickly becoming a favourite channel. Brilliant programmes every day. Also, Loudermilk on Amazon Prime is hilarious. Just finished the Epstein series on Netflix too, staggering really.

It's fantastic, and visually gobsmacking. I watched it for the 3rd time a couple of days ago. Wish I'd seen it in the cinema.

Re: Edward Colston statue removal,your views.

The mob vandalism witnessed also removes the spotlight from what should have been the focus of the demonstration which is that "Black Lives Matter."
I'd say it's done the exact opposite. How many people knew about him or the British involvement in slavery before yesterday?
