I believe Monty Python's Flying Circus was shown on Sunday nights. I say that because I can remember everyone talking about it at school on Monday mornings.

It wasn't widely noticed at the time (2013), but one of the earliest failures of the Fernandes regime was the failure to get in a bid for the QPR women's team to join the Women's Super League:

@BazzaInTheLoft: 'We (QPR) have got some skin in the game'

Apparently Chloe Kelly was a season ticket holder at QPR:

It looks like there is an assumption that you are either a match goer or an overseas fan. I can see the Live Video tickets gradually approaching the season ticket price.

Zeffirelli's version Romeo and Juliet is a good place to start to introduce youngsters to Shakespeare, although like most Shakespeare adaptations it still has its dull moments.

In my opinion the positives of Zeffirelli's version are:
1) It captures the spirit of the original
2) It keeps the original language
3) It has a great cast
4) It has stood the test of time

@CiderwithRsie: 'Whereas I nominate "Prospero's Books" because I bloody love Shakespeare and I know the play yet I didn't have a fecking clue what was going on or even where we were in the plot. You could see it had money thrown at it but I've never been more bored looking at naked bodies. It had Laurence fecking Olivier in it and I still couldn't care less about any of the characters. In my book, that makes it terrible.'

If only Greenaway had realised that Shakespeare's language does the heavy lifting he would have realised that there was no need for his (Greenaway's) visual bells and whistles.

One of the best things about Rambo is the Trumpian sherriff (played by Brian Dennehy), who bites off more than he can chew.

@R_from_afar 'I always find this speech poignant and really thought-provoking. For me, it covers some pretty serious, real-life issues, like PTSD, the ignominy many of the US soldiers faced back home because the war went so badly, and the difficulty many had adjusting to humdrum civilian jobs after having major responsibilities out in the combat zone.'

In that speech Rambo says: 'And I come back to the world and I see all those maggots at the airport, protesting me, spitting. Calling me baby killer and all kinds of vile crap! Who are they to protest me, huh? Who are they?'

One documentary that completely undermines the 'Rambo thesis' is 'Sir! No Sir!' which shows the level of opposition to the war within the US army:



Similarly, another myth-busting book, James Loewen's Lies My Teacher Told Me (1995), points out that 'Educated people disproportionately supported the Vietnam War':

'These results (of a January 1971 poll) surprise even some professional social scientists. Twice as high a proportion of college-educated adults, 40 percent, were hawks, compared to only 20 percent of adults with grade school educations. And this poll was no isolated phenomenon. Similar results were registered again and again, in surveys by Harris, NORC, and others. Back in 1965, when only 24 percent of the nation agreed that the United States “made a mistake” in sending troops to Vietnam, 28 percent of the grade school-educated felt so. Later, when less than half of the college-educated adults favored pullout, among the grade school-educated 61 percent did. Throughout our long involvement in Southeast Asia, on issues related to Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, or Laos, the grade school-educated were always the most dovish, the college-educated the most hawkish.'

Another Peter Greenaway effort. My thoughts on Greenaway:

'At first glance cinema does seem to be a visual art, like painting, and I am sure we all appreciate beautiful films. But film, whether slow-moving or action-packed is still primarily a narrative form. That is why film-makers who treat film like painting, or who have emerged from the painting tradition, like Derek Jarman and Peter Greenaway make such god-awful films.'

There is a QPR connection as QPR fan Michael Nyman composed the music for The Draughtsman's Contract, one of Greenaway's better films.

Not the worst films ever, but there seem to be quite a lot of films on Netflix that aren't quite substantial enough to be films. Maybe it's because their main business is making series?

In The Princess Bride Vizzini describes the classic blunders as:

1. Never start a land war in Asia
2. Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line

To which I would only add:

3. Never play Onuoha at right back

Frogprincess made this genius observation about the director of Prospero's Books in the comments section of this article:

It's perhaps not so much that audiences have moved away from Peter Greenaway as that Peter Greenaway has moved away from audiences.

Why has Peter Greenaway gone so out of fashion?
