Not forgetting Jamie's buried "deep-fat fryer"

I mean, it can't be a coincidence all this fat & depth

I cried, honestly

What kind of f-d up mentality is that? "spoons" until the age of 10 & what's with those plastic prison trays

I mean , even my cat eats better

( of course, he does have a table with a candelabra & a cath kidston oil cloth )

I agree that is makes it hard to really look forward to it, but it was always good because they killed people that you didn't think would die and you never knew whether someone was going to get out of a given situation. The pay-off is lack of continuity.

I potentially like the new character (Beth) but just don't care about Harry and Ruth.

I watched the end bit last night & I laughed ( you know, a one hard "HA" type laugh ) when she said

"We've seen too much me & you, after all what would we talk about when the neighbors came round"

Oh & where he said something like..

"But 9 people died because of me"

"But think how many you saved" she replied

"Is that how it is , just mathematics to you ?"

"I suppose so"

I don't normally watch TV so I'm not that familiar with Spooks but I did see this week's episode. There was a bit of dialogue that said - and I'm paraphrasing hugely - "get on to the electricity board and find out where you can get an uninterrupted supply".

For the love of God, have any of these writers actually tried calling a frigging utility company this century? Which option does MI5 select after listening to the recorded message? What account number entered (followed by the hash key)? When they finally speak to an actual human voice (who may or not be in the same hemisphere), exactly what degree of knowledge are they expecting that person to have? Or maybe they just ask to speak to a supervisor straight away.

?Hello I?m MI5 calling to save human-kind as we know it?

?Well I?m very sorry but you can?t do that on your present plan but is there anything else I can help you with today??

Is it me? Is it just me? Tell me.

Are you suggesting there are plot holes in Spooks stories giggirl? Perish, I say perish that thought right there young lady, it's flawless I tell you.

Like those sleek narco subs used to smuggle the bomb up the thames....or an actual narco sub, fine for getting some cocaine to a godforsaken Louisianan swamp, but powering up the Thames undetected like a deadly shark?

    • This! And just a polite reminder to certain posters on here, the title of the thread is "cyclists taking over paths"!  
    • Is there more news on this? Plus Council/Gala response on the tree lopping?
    • If 85% of car drivers are regularly breaking the law and think they are above it - then it suggests they aren’t being caught and fined doesn’t it? 
    • But we are talking about the cyclists are we not? Did you also notice the very same pedestrian walks across the pedestrian crossing and what happens...the cyclist cycling up the wrong way of the cycle lane doesn't stop at the pedestrian crossing....   Perhaps you would like to try and find fault with the pedestrians in the other video....or are you refusing to watch that one too...time to take the blinkers off perhaps... Well if they get caught speeding they get fined...you can kill someone when youre riding a bike and claim the speed limit doesn't count for you and you can't be charged with causing death by dangerous cycling. Is that perfectly acceptable in your world?   As I have said for a long time the daily repeated examples of.bad cycling everyone can see must be down to arrogance or ignorance...which one is it? Police are starting to have to more aggressively police cycling not because they want to but because they have to..why..because cyclist behaviour is getting worse.
