    Ricky Gervais

    I'm well aware that it's subjective, but the British version of The Office is better for so many reasons. I liked the American version, but i admit i lasted about four episodes after Carell left before i gave up. 1) Believable characters. I'm sorry but Dwight and Michael became absolute caricatures and ridiculously unbelievable as the series progressed. 2) Believable storylines. The episode of the US Office where Jim puts an Asian version of himself at his desk (with a perfect knowledge of Jim's life and client history) would never have happened in the UK version, because the banal nature of the place they worked and the job itself was what made the characters situations funnier and as mentioned above, believable. 2) It didn't outstay it's welcome. Two series and the Christmas specials was the perfect length and everyone got the ending they deserved. Perfect. 3) Every individual character in the UK version was more likeable than their US counterparts* Jim and Pam were sound but got cloying in the end. Dawn and Tim never got to that stage, because it ended at the perfect time. Gareth was a million times better than Dwight, because he was basically pathetic and it didn't have to rely on tiresome Redneck/serial killer gags for you to realise it. And despite his patheticness, you still rooted for him. 4)*yeah, even Finchy. 5) So many quotable lines. I can't off the top of my head think of a single quote from the American version, whereas not a single day passes without me wanting to quote the UK version.

    The Irishman

    Once Upon a Time in America is nearly four hours long and never felt like it, so i'm fine with it's run time.

    Nike deal

    My lad will be happy, he's just been had off to the tune of £150 for a pair of godawful Nike trabs in the last week, so he'll be equally happy to throw a similar amount at a kit. Oh wait, it will be me paying for it.

    In the Shadow of the Moon, Netflix. Decent sci-fi time travel murder thang starring the blonde fella out of the first series of Narcos. Starts off brilliant but ends a bit mad. 7/10

    Milner: No progress on new deal

    He's ace. Absolutely no need to elaborate beyond that.

    Worth a better mark for Debora Nascimento alone

    I cant get my head around Izzard being described as old school, but i guess he is, given how long he has been doing it for.

    Stand up comedy it's any of Eddie Izzard, Billy Connolly, 70's Steve Martin or Dylan Moran, for me. Comic actors i'd go for Michael Palin, Eric Morecambe, Reeves and Mortimer or Rik Mayall

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I hate this narrative of "Everton would almost certainly have won The European Cup in 1986". Yes, they were a very good team, but there are so many variables involved, its untrue. For a start, if Heysel (not Hysel) hadn't have happened then Liverpool may well have won number 5 on that night. So, Everton would have been in the same competiton as us in 1986, a season that we beat them to both the league and FA Cup. If not, they would have played Juventus, who weren't exactly garbage. Add in to that the likes of Barcelona, Porto, Bayern and even Anderlecht (who would have played Everton in the first round and ended up getting to the semis) then it's not a given Everton would have even got anywhere near the final. And finally, it's Everton, the greatest variable of all.
