Excellent post. Lets try and refrain from it becoming one can we ?

Anyway
The Aston Martin DBS used in The Persuaders just doesn't look right
The colour is just not right for the car.
Also in some scenes the suspension looks odd raised at the front down at the back
Just my 2p worth

redcard That's it Dave, you've finally crossed the line and gone way, way past anything you'd like to 'do' to the Abbopotumus!

(You're right about the suspension though wink )

I agree with him. Three bellends arsing around doesn't make for the TV show of the century.

Indeed, the stock response to uncharitable rejection of gallantry.

Drama series featuring serial murders are st. They exist because for the writer/s they are ideal, a new killing every episode, and no need to show the motivation of the killer (because insane).
Not as st as film franchises featuring serial killers. Especially when the scriptwriters try to re-imagine, say, Hannibal Lecter as going from the most terrifying human who ever lived to some wronged, tortured soul bordering on a superhero who only ever ate bad people that really deserved it rolleyes
Yeah the prequel film was naff. Thomas Harris didn't want to even write a fourth book, but when the studio said we'll get someone else to do a novelisation of the film we're making anyway because 'rights already secured' etc he felt compelled to write one. Suppose that makes sense as an author - begrudgingly write a book to add to a series after your first two books were golden, rather than have another person write a new one using characters you've created which have been largely lauded.

The fact Hannibal only murdered and/or ate certain types of people was dealt with much more elegance in Red Dragon & SOTL.

Unpopular opinion.......

Gentlemen don't respond to churlish behaviour with churlish behaviour.

Agreed, but in the interest of full disclosure, I’m hardly going
to oppose someone with taxi in their name, am I?

Can someone explain how the name Top Gear (2 words) has become topgear with a strange pronunciation emphasis? See also Glaxo Smith Kline = glaxosmithkline with an emphasis on the smith. You may start your explanation with the word 'So'.
