Its not just bulldada, in fact when the budgets sucked it had some of the best written sci-fi stories,
Sure every episode was the same quarry with a different colour filter over the camera lense each week, but that quarry gave us stories like Genesis of the Daleks which is A-Grade storytelling.

Also Douglas Adams was the show writer for about two years in the 70s and those episodes are still slick stylish and funny, his best is probably City of Death and is a fun counterfeit art story set in 70s Paris and renaissance Paris.

The show has never had consistency, Its as strong as the individual writers of which there are scores. You get the good with the bad. The bulldada episodes like Face of Evil when they had no money had to get creative and have hilarous thungs like tom bakers screaming head following the cast around a forest.

The main problem with the new show apart from condescension is the melodrama, the show is strongest when its exporing a sci-fi concept and not moaning over the doctor wondering if he doing the right thing.

He's condescending, and trying to demonstrate he is smart, at the expense of the characters. He can do excellent once off episode's like blink, or the girl in the fireplace, but any of his long running stories become a mess fast

The Doctor Who people have just announced that the new Doctor is going to be a woman. "The Fandom" immediately shat itself, and has been rolling around in it all day. Having been a fan since I was like 14, I have never given a single fuck about "The Fandom" until now. This shit show is glorious.

I like how people were complaining about liberals and political correctness when the show had a lesbian dinosaur woman.

The fandom are the worst and I know how this will go; If the stories are good no one will complain, if the stories are bad thry will blame the fact that it's a woman in the role.

My point wasn't that he was a monster, it's that the debate could never happen, he was offered amnesty as part of operation paperclip, his work was literally important to the exclusion of all else.

Inexperience good men get sacrificed when projects go wrong, questionable men never get questioned when they are vital to a project. I've seen both happen in the last place I worked

And at the other end of the spectrum, is Wernher Von Braun. Too good at his job to be fired, and far too busy to stand trial for war crimes.

Today is the bonfire and marching day up the north, it's a day that tends to have violence, and high tensions around it.
They are a small subset of scumbags, but it's important to note they are the DUPs voting base.

A charming bunch to be sure, with fine cultural traditions like buring the Irish flag, and with lovely banners like "We're not racist, just don't like Niggas"


Hopefully today will go by without anyone getting killed and not too many peoples pets murdered on the bonfires.

Well that's irrefutable proof of Russian tampering in the election, surprised Jr admitted it. Even if it's not a smoking gun proving his dad knew about it, it verifies everything Comey said, and makes trumps attempt to shut down the investigation look far worse. Having been used to Berlusconi and years and years of scandal without anything happening, is there any hope this can start the impeachment process?

I'm not good at, or rather never know what to say but take care of yourself man, it doesn't sound like an easy situation, but I'm glad you have support and having the dojo nearby sounds like it takes some of the edge off.

That depends on the EULA, if they are trusting you to pay for it if you are using a trial, it's dumb on their part but its dishonest if you use it continuously.

A lot of companies operate on trust, Like teamviewer, its free version is used and abused by companies around the world, and all they have is a message on exiting the machine saying, if you are using this for business, please consider getting a business licence.

Maybe the maelstrom that is the administration might actually do something good for a change?

McGuivered up a hose pipe + motor + A wah-wah pedal, or the real deal?

I'm on steriods and antibiotics and my sense of smell has come back after a good 15 years of absense and its horrible, I can't wait for it to go away.

It might not have such far reaching consequences but it seems so frustratingly unnecessary, especially with everything else going on. It's like Gove wanted to do something big and showy because he was on the out in the party, so in relation to Brexit he does something that would appear decisive, to endear himself with big boys table.

In reality it's is like going to a party where everyone has brought a massive amount of booze of all different varieties, then feeling precious about the bottle of wine he brought so instead decides to go home and drink it for himself.

Gove is planning on pulling the UK out of the common fisheries act to "take back UK waters for UK fishermen". This same insane promise was pushed by UKIP so I really didn't think anyone would take it seriously, the bottom line is that act allowed the UK access to an area streching up towards Iceland, down to Spain and up past Norway and vice versa, European countries in UK water.

While technically it means that the UK will have exclusive fishing rights to it's own area, where previously a lot was given away to other countries, it's greatly reduced area means all UK fishing vessles will be competing in a very small area.

But it also doesn't take into account that certain kinds of fish are seasonal and regional, if there is a really good salmon batch down by spain or west of Ireland it just wont have access, and never mind if you wanted to pick up something exotic like swordfish or octopus.

The bottom line is, keeping the existing rules protected UK fishermens livelyhoods, and kept fish costs low... Lets hope the Brexit negotiations succeed on import/export duties because if it defaults to WTO taxation of 21% in/out a lot of people are going to lose their jobs.
