What are you watching tonight?

If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

Traumatised by the ending of Sanditon (which I had been loving) tonight. Tango, have you been watching it?
Ha, no, G.G.but my wife is complaining bitterly at no happy ending. Jane Austen never finished it so I didn't even read the part finished version. Much as I like all her other novels which I know inside out, I read one chapter and thought it rubbish. The T.V thing is script writer imagination only. .

I’m with Mrs Tango here! I know it was unfinished but I’m sure Jane Austen would have written a happy ending. There must be a second series I’m guessing, surely. I even took to Twitter over it and I barely ever go on there!

Arrival.

Oh boy did you all get *that* wrong with your awards and what not. What a load of toss.

I'm with you. Very underwhelmed.

Some timeskip weirdness to make it arty. I'm usually all in favour (same director did Enemy, which was batsh*t and great) but there wasn't enough in this one and Jeremy Renner is a lot of nothing.

Yep.


*SPOILER ALERT*





Felt like they'd got a hell of a long way through the "Alien Memento" thing before someone asked why on earth the aliens were there in the first place. Then quick, shove in one line that they'll need help in 3000 years and hope for the best.

I liked Sicario, will check out enemy.

I did try to 'get into' Dublin Murders. Unfortunately I found it to be a pile of unfathomable old bollocks and gave up on it.

Sadly, I have to agree. I gave up too. Thought it would be good.

The wall with Danny Dyer. Or the woah as he pronounces it.

I don't know if it's usually like that but it was the funniest half hour of telly I've seen in a while. One annoying contestant with a numb c*nt of a partner getting all the questions wrong accompanied by Danny being pwoppa nawty shouting "drop em" every few minutes. Reading the live twitter feed with it, only added to the hilarity.

Have you seen his UFO documentary, Harry? "I believe in UFOs: Danny Dyer".

He goes around the UK and America interviewing people who've spotted aliens or UFOs. I wholeheartedly urge you to seek it out and find out if you haven't. One of the finest hours of comedy in the last decade.

Amazing. I was set to go to bed at 11 when this came on, and for reasons I cannot explain I found myself being absolutely intrigued by it, and watched it through to its midnight conclusion.

A fecking annoying bint shouting at inanimate objects with her thick-as-feck fella answering the most basic of general knowledge incorrectly, capped off by him losing them £30K.

I knew Danny Dyer was born to do something away from football hooliganism and this is it.

HMHB had exactly these contestants in mind when they wrote this. :)

Currently watching our inimitable Historian Professor Lucy Worsley on "The six wives of Henry VIII". I love this woman's presence, knowledge, intelligence and sense of humour. Totally unafraid to take the pxss out of herself, she's always worth watching whether following Jane Austen, dancing with Len Goodman or exploring ancient Egypt. Go Lucy... :D

I've not seen that. Not on catch up or Netflix sadly. I'll have a look on you tube. After last night I'm starting to view him as a comedy genius :lol:

The new Ken Loach film - Sorry we missed you. Typical laugh along Loach stuff! Take tissues and leave with a sense of anger and injustice.
