    I know it was an innocent mixup, but when segueing into Murder by Decree Pandy referred to Spock as "Doctor Spock."

    DOCTOR Spock is the very much deceased and renown pediatrician.

    MISTER Spock is the formal, non-rank referencing prefix for the very much fictional half-human/half-Vulcan science officer of the USS Enterprise!


    Ma bad!

    Julie and Maria, I think this is from Julie’s early 1970s variety show 


    Cool! Thanks for this!

    You missed Liza’s turn in Muppets Take Manhattan!

    Her caricature is the one Kermit and the rats replace at that posh restaurant.

    Never seen it! Hopefully to be rectified before the official call up to Flipchart Forums.

    Also disappointed, just a little, that Kevin Nash’s turn as a Wizard of Oz “themed” gimmick (very short lived), literally called Oz, in the early 1990s WCW was not mentioned! ;)

    Fucking WHAT?

    Mulan will be released on Disney+ on Sept 4th. For $29.99.

    I understand putting the movie out on streaming, as I can't see theaters being open/packed (well, I can't see them open at any rate) en masse for a normal release.  And I even understand charging something extra, rather than just the normal monthly subscription rate.  But $30 seems a bit much.  My local theater is pretty much $5 all day, everyday.  I'm not paying $30 to watch it (or anything really) in my living room.

    Hard pass. I'll watch Hamilton again.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    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. 

  7. 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 - 

    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! 

  8. 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.
