Yeah, your spoilered bit is my big issue:
What a weirdly low rent trailer, unless that was the point.
Spent some money booking away grounds
Did anyone watch the first episode of season 3 yet? I haven’t personally, but will probably do so sometime this week.
Weird seeing this scene out of context, kind of a reminder that the writing on the show is all over the place. Feels like the scene was always written to be cut out like this, but aside from the general vibes of cheese, feels a bit incongruous to the series on the whole.
I think, as with basically all these big US comedy shows, there is a lot of character arc pay-off stuff. This was an important culmination to a lot of character stuff so even though it was corny as fuck and invoked such a worn cliché it worked as a viewer when you’d watched up to that.
No real difference to me than with something like Friends using “we were on a break”, which is shit but when you were into the show that kind of cheap callback worked in a way that makes no sense.
S1 was a 3 nil win in a cup tie at home in the sun
S2 was a 0-0 in the rain in Carlisle.
The new ep was ok. Some good bits but it feels like it’s done, that season 1 was lighting in a bottle and season 3 is just them limping to the finish line. Pity, but it might get better. I really hope it does.
Watched about 15 mins of the first ep of S3 and turned it off. Weird how something I enjoyed so much is S1 now turns my stomach. Like overindulging in cheese cake or something.
Colleague just told me one of the 20ish year old characters says ‘what’s a cd’ in the new series and that’s me out.
Got angry enough at an episode of My Family when i was 10 cos the son didnt know what a record was
There’s a lot of it about.
I spoke to a 21 year old colleague about it and she said its bullshit. Of course theyd know what a cd is. Theyre in tesco, theyre in cars, they’re like dvds, their parents probably used them. Its nonsense
My 8yo doesn’t know what a CD is, which is fair enough, but a 21yo was 10 in 2012 for fucks sake
Spotify had been out a few years by then
can’t believe a sitcom might exaggerate for comedic effect.
Yeah, it’s not like showing them a 8-track.
Three years. And as if they never think, ‘huh what did people use before this’ and CDs are still a common cultural motif thing.
