Yeah where I work we hand-out caps for the kids to take home. We were instructed yesterday that we can no longer assume the pink ones are for girls & the blue ones are for boys...
We must let them choose themselves what colour they want...suffice to say, the girls still choose pink & the boys, blue.

Punjab episode.

As powerful & well done as this episode was...the need to base the story around another deplorable historical event baffles me.

It's a very fine line between sci-fi escapism & using the theme of mass genocide to tell a story...

It's a shame but the TARDIS juz seems be a mode of transport in this new series, nothing more.
Why the Doc didn't use it to analyse the canister much less a fortress for protection against the "assassins" was poor decision making.
This is certainly the most flawed Doctor in the series...but it's a very fine line with her coming off as dumb & blonde.

Did Umbreen remember Yaz at all?
Was the remark about the badly done hannah paint on her palm an indication that she knew?
Yeah she was old but it's kinda hard to forget a stranger with the same name as her granddaughter turning up unexpectedly for the wedding...along with demons.

Yet you claimed he should've learned it prior to making said mistake, i.e. Wong teaching it to him.

It was pretty obvious Strange was more confident & mastered more skills in IW then he did in his solo film.

So why is it so much of a stretch to assume he learned & practised more in the period between story lines?

And considering Wong has a recurring role, why is it another stretch to assume he mentored Strange?

And even if he learned it post, we've already pointed out Strange went through so many scenarios, slicing limbs would've been on the list and proven ineffectual since its so apparently obvious a move to try.

More ineffectual & apparently obvious than psychically trying to yank the gauntlet off?

Hell, I assume Thanos needs to crap sometime. They should've waited for him to take the gauntlet off to wipe his ass...

I was jus curious with the different mannerisms depicted on screen with the various actors that portrayed him.

I seem to recall Reeves would fly with both arms outstretched then would lower one depending on which direction he was turning.

Superspeed was either one or both arms outstretched & casual flying was usually both arms by either side.

I was juz curious whether it was for dramatic effect or actually served a purpose...

Also the cab was accidental as well and not an offensive attack technique.

Of course it was an accident!

There's a saying that implies people learn from their mistakes.

Has it ever been explained how Supes controls his ability to fly & manoeuvre?

I mean I assume it's a mental thing where he tells himself to speeden up, slow down, turn left, turn right, hover...

Has it ever been explained in more depth?

3. Wong didn't use the portal offensively on purpose. It was an accident so no reason to think it's a technique he'd teach Strange.

I'm not trying to flog a head horse but I happened to watch IW again, last night...

When Banner realises he can't transform, Tony tells Wong to protect him.
The battle starts & Strange opens a portal & pushes Banner through it out of harm's way...

As the portal opened, it expanded & sliced a yellow cab in half.
One half remained on the street whilst the other half fell through the portal with Banner into the park.

Juz saying Strange experienced himself the potential of the portal as a weapon (slicing a cab in half) without Wong.

Well there was also that vague suggestion that she may bare a child.

Maybe they're playing her personality as neutral as possible in case they go with that storyline...

The way I saw it the very first places would have been attacked were the big cities and military bases and they were pretty quick so I think it's believable that humans didn't really get a chance to put up a fight or figure out their weakness.

Yeah I know we're starting over analyse this film...rather than enjoy it for what it was...

But the creatures were more primal than intelligent.
As an alien invasion goes, they seemed to have no motive for coming to Earth.

They didn't seem to eat their prey, just kill on instinct.

Han Solo.

Enjoyed it as a solid, if not predictable sci-fi adventure.

Pretty cringe-worthy how convenient most of the cast were killed off.

Didn't know Paul Bethany was part of the cast so that was a pleasant surprise.
He's one actor that I always thought would take serious dramatic roles instead of the action/hero genre ( Legion, Priest).
