    Me grandad was, he said by the end of the industry he agreed with stopping it, when he started he said the seas were easy to find whales*, by the end they were killing pregnant females and young ones, a different era. (* can't even imagine that nowadays)

    Sean Bean. He doesn't do other voices ... ever.

    I'm watching Snowpiercer at the moment and they got around this by saying his character is from Sheffield.

    The only thing I've seen that Sean Bean doesn't die in is the Yorkshire Tea adverts.

    He doesn't die in Sharpe, unless that French bit shags him to death.

    Anybody watching The Falcon and the Winter Soldier?

    First episode was a little slow but it’s really picked up. Can’t believe how political it’s become for a Disney show.

    I was trawling through Channel 4 offerings and came across Fargo, which from memory I had heard of before, really is quite a good watch. Martin Freemen is excellent in it.

    Red top said
    Started to watch a limited series on Netflix called
    “ Unbelievable “ it’s about a serial rapist, based on a true story. I’ve just finished episode 5 of 10. In my honest opinion it’s ****ing brilliant. Has one of my favourite actresses in it Toni Collette, highly recommend if you like this sort of program..
    From 9pm tonight I’m going to watch the other
    5 episodes, Mrs mop is not going to be pleased
    Might be sleeping downstairs tonight

    thanks for the recommendation. we watched it and it was indeed superb.
    but does anyone know where i can get a copy of that forensics manual from?

    Third thing ive seen Kaitlyn Dever in.
    Justified - which we loved and Them that Follow - which was fair. both also starring Walton Goggins.

    Stephen Graham came up with the idea of swatting Jimmy Hoffa's ice cream off the table before going into their fight scene. Graham warned Scorsese and the crew what he was going to do so no one would be hit by the dish, but wanted to surprise Pacino. Pacino's startled reaction was genuine. He afterwards complimented Graham for successfully surprising him.

    (copy/paste off imdb.)
    (So stephen graham obviously isnt anywhere near as thick and stupid as he looks and sounds.)

    i seem to remember him in from the late 90's as a thoroughly unlikable character in The Lakes. just looked it up and was surprised to see it was john simm in the starring role. never realised.

    its a credit to him that i hate his characters so much and hence
    mistakenly hate him.

    a bit like the guy who played davros

    I recently watched the first few episodes of The Irregulars.

    The irregulars were the street kids that Sherlock Holmes called upon to get information to solve his cases. It's a bit weird, firstly because they're not just crimes, they're all supernatural crimes. Secondly, because you don't ever see Holmes (at least not in the first three episodes), you just see Watson, who's a black bloke who's permanently pissed off. And thirdly, because it's set in Victorian London, but 'the irregulars' all speak in very modern English. There's lots of 'piss of you ****er' type language.

    I can't decide if I quite like it, or if it's just complete nonsense.
