Another of my most controversial, non-political opinions.... If you wear brown shoes with a blue or black suit..... it a disgusting abomination and just wrong...not to mention a major fashion faux pas

Not even Beaker? Pigs in space?
No! I think the issue was a lot of it was American humour宇he unfunny kind奸ike SNL.宇he sketches went on too long and stopped being funny. Many of the guests were unknown in the U.K. It just didnt travel very well. I should say, I am probably in a minority even here in the U.K., but I never even cracked a smile at the Muppet Show.

Frasier? Genius. Curb Your Enthusiasm? Genius. Big Bang Theory? Very good. Friends? Very good.

Only 10% of Monty Pythons Flying Circus was funny. Is this the right room for an argument?

Here's my favorite unpopular opinion, hopefully it's non political.

There should be no innocence for insanity. I don't care if it's temporary or life long.

We really don't need any more crazy people. Yes, I know, I'm crass and unsympathetic.

Im ok with curb I never watched Big Bang. But Wtf? Friends? That is hot garbage. Its up there with little house on the prairie. Btw In 5th grade I once convinced a girl that I disliked that the final episode in walnut grove was when the natives came to town and burned it to the ground and feathered each and every character leaving them on their faces for the birds and beasts of the field. I admit, it still tickles me a little bit to this very day.

Agreed. But The Holy Grail is Gospel in the neighborhood I grew up in. To this day.
When Richard Dawkins was signing my copy of God Delusion recently, I told him that ironically, his book is my Bible! He smiled and said told me that some hotels have replaced the usual Gideon Bible with God Delusion! Not in the USA! I suggested!

An international meeting requires convening to standardise the pronunciation of the -stein name suffix. If Einstein = Ein-styn then why was Rhodas surname Morgan-steen (if you remember that programme, you are old!). When referring to the disgraceful Harvey Weinstein should it be pronounced Weinsteen or Weinstyn? How does one pronounce the surname of Prince Andrews best ex-friend Jeffrey Epstein划pstein or Epstyn?
