  1. There are three certainties in life: 1) Death 2) Taxes 3) Ian will find a way to bring up me being bald in any opportunity. Be it a podcast segment or his sister's wedding speech - it'll be there!
  2. The triumphant Kevin Bishop episode, of course!
  3. Ma bad! Cool! Thanks for this!
  4. Never seen it! Hopefully to be rectified before the official call up to Flipchart Forums. Fucking WHAT?
  5. I only knew her from Arrested Development but good GOD is she awesome in that show. RIP.
  6. Many happy returns, boss!
  7. Yup. Winter Soldier is a worth runner up as a great movie but it starts the Cap x Buck angle that spoiled Cap 3/a lot of Phases 2&3 for me.
  8. Have chosen Cap. Perfect origins story told really well - you know everything Rogers holds dear within minutes and the character stays consistent throughout the rest of his films. Period setting is executed super well too. Thor 3 is fun but there's the continuity bug bares that stop me from loving it and GOTG is fab but suffers towards the end.
  9. Guardians did what Iron Man did in terms of bringing a previously low-profile story (to the layman) into consciousness. I do like a good film soundtrack (I like Edgar Wright films) and it's tons of fun. It's also one I'd be more likely to rewatch! I think Infinity War did a brilliant job tying a lot of stories together well and the action is incredible. Does it work as a stand-alone? God no - that's not its purpose. But as a singular film, and that is what the poll is, it is inferior to Guardians.
  10. For this choice I've had to think about what I prefer to see in an MCU film and I've gone with Iron Man. Main reason is that everything that came after IM in the Feige-verse stuck largely to this template/style/vision and upon rewatching a few months ago I recognised a lot of call backs that elevated it. I also appreciate that Iron Man works more as a standalone movie, whereas a lot of elements of Thor 3 rely on you knowing about the other films - something I'm not overly keen on. I like Thor: Ragnarok - it's come a long way from the originator of the MCU, is extremely pretty and a lot funnier than IM.
  11. Up until my last rewatch I was with you but going into Ragnarok knowing what to expect made its aping of GOTG much more tolerable and I really enjoyed it. IM2 gets a lot of shit - it's pretty poor but there are some decent moments in amongst the bullshit.
  12. Close call for me - GOTG v.2 felt pretty lazy/forced but just won out over Ant Man. Both mid-tier
  13. "...just 'cause it's a classic doesn't mean that it's good."
  14. I echo the sentiments of Chris in ep 1100 regarding the lack of Cap/Bucky relationship building that makes Cap seem like a tool in his own movie.
  15. Apart from Iron Man 3 I find myself agreeing with a lot of Chris' choices and opinions. Great ep!
  16. Thanks all for your submissions! We've had a look at your home towns and spotted some interesting sights. They were struck by the amount of similarities and diffences! Here is a breakdown of opinions about your foods: Mike - Chicago-style pizza - yum Chicago-style hot dogs - yum Dipped Italian beefs (the sandwich is 100% dunked in the beef juice) - a mix of yum, mega yum and yuck Harold's Chicken Shack - mega yum The hero that is Tamale Guy - unsure Garrett Popcorn - who doesn't love popcorn? Prof - Wendy's founded in Columb us. - they thought it sounded relatable Skyline Chili - extreme Poles of mega yum and mega yuck Sweet Corn Festival as well as the Pumpkin Show - much interested/bemusement Will - Skyline Chili - see above Buckeyes - universal mega yuck. Also one girl has a severe peanut allergy so very much rejected Christian - Cheesesteak hoagies - mega yum. By now they were getting hungry so this got a pretty big pop Snr Emailbot - Fruits and vegetables - always fun Beaver Tails. - I don't think they could get past the name... Maple Syrup - yum Poutine - equal measure yum or yuck Ketchup Chips and All Dressed flavoured Chips - interested to sample flavours but majority couldn't get past the name. On the whole a great way to give some local colour, so thanks again!
  17. North Americans! I need you! As part of my school's current iteration we're doing weekly topics based on continents. This week we're doing 'the Americas'! Seeing as how this is largely a North American group I was wondering if you could help me provide my charges with some insight into life in different regions as they largely think that all of North America is New York or LA (fools). If you're happy to help I would appreciate answers to the following questions: Which State/Province do you live in/come from? What makes your state special/different to others? What local foods is your state known for? What special buildings do you have? Your answers can be posted here, DM'd or emailed to If you are happy/have time to record a short audio clip (3-5 mins) that is a great way get things across! Thank you in advance! A very tired teacher.
