I enjoyed it - was a big move away from the first episode, but it was cool that they went for a unique telling. You could tell it was a Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat show though.

It's not unique though, it's the exact same plot as Moffat's 2006 "Jekyll" lol

I'm currently reading the graphic novel, up to Volume 4 (out of 8 ) so it might take a while. I'm guessing the TV series is massively toned down though, some of the content of the graphic novel is just insane (but that's Garth Ennis for you!)

It got a bit gritty but not massively graphic. I can imagine what the book is like 😳

Started watching The Boys on Amazon. Very different take on the superhero thing and quite enjoyable too. 

anyone else seen it? 

I thought it was a really good series, can't get my head around Karl Urban's British accent but weirdly it works!

I thought the second part was decent too. Only just started the opening scenes of the third. Not sure I'm a big fan of entering present time, but I have been entertained so far.

Finished the Dracula series yesterday. I thought it was decent despite being very different from the traditional dracual movies. I'm sure @Denzel Zanzibarjust hates it because Dracula is played by a Danish actor 😉

Lol nah, I hated it because Moffat used the exact same plot device for the third episode in his 2006 show "Jekyll."

It was terrible back then, too.

Two things about the actor too. First off, Claes Bang is an incredible name.

Secondly; the man didn't have his breakout role till he was like...50, that's mad.

Phillip Schofield has come out as gay. I wonder how many other 80s/90s kid's TV presenters will come out, I imagine back then they were told coming out would ruin their careers.

It's weird, isn't it? Can't tell whether to feel good for someone finally being able to be themselves or dreadful that the fella has seemingly dealt with this for so long, finding it so difficult to be himself. My cousin went through something similar quite a few years ago now, also married with 2 kids before he came out as he didn't even think he'd be accepted by his immediate family, never mind the extended family.

Philip Schofield coming out as gay is the biggest shock to since Will Young did. 🙄

But I’d be interested to know if it was family or work that put pressure on him to feel that he couldn’t do it before now

I think it had to be work pressure to begin with. An openly gay kids' TV presenter back in the 80s? Would never have flown.

I'm just wondering though how he ended up married with kids in the first place...that really boggles my mind!

I had no idea gay people could subvert their feelings to that extent...or maybe he was confused and unsure about which way he wanted to go?

Still...27 years...thats a hell of a long time to keep up any kind of pretence. OTOH waiting until his kids were grown up probably made it easier for everyone to deal with.

    • Best opposition 11 (possibly prem era) although that could be too big a selection
    • 100% go with the worst squad, should be hilarious 
    • I think worst squad would bring plenty of discussion (and humour). 
    • Alright my fellow doyles! I'm up for running another 'Greatest' poll after the 'Greatest Squad' one seemed to be enjoyed. Next question is - what do you want it on? A few options that've been bandied about or I've though of: Greatest Squad - Pre-1995 Edition @BillyWoofs_shinpad I think it was put this one forward. There's a handful of squad numbers from the 70s/80s, so it could work, though could also be position based.   Worst Squad - Boro Edition Think it was @Liquid who suggested this one. Again, could be squad number or position based.   Greatest Concept Kit - Boro Edition Saw a site this morning which gave me this idea - also picked up from the kit vote the club ran on Twitter earlier in lockdown. Could run it like a Knock-Out Tournament with Home and Away on either side to come up with the Greatest Concept Kit pairing as voted by OneBoro fans.   If you have any further ideas, feel free to drop them here. We can have a vote on the final selection. ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
