The trailer review is hysterical.

Re: the only "big" name?

Well, fair point, but I guess in tabloid terms Ramsay is the big... bird. Would you have clicked on this story if it had Dougray Scott in the headline?

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: Turkey Gordon Bleugh

It's not 'his', it's just that he's the only big name involved, see.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: It shouldn't help him either

Did I forget to welcome all our eminent autism experts to this thread? What an appalling oversight on my part!

Re: Re: Why make a big deal of a disability?

And it's been brought up, so it's relevant, but no one's having a pop, OK?

While I'm here - hey, everyone! Let's see who can win a prize for not being a total dick in this thread.

Re: Why make a big deal of a disability?

In this instance I think it counts as mitigation, actually.

Women's gaydar (for men) improves when ovulating

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: Bleedin' Psychologists...

I don't see how it victimises or belittles gay men personally, but perhaps I'd feel differently if I were a gay man.

Re: Peer Review?

Good grief.

I see what you did there.

US air passenger cuffed over low-flying pants

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: No need for burkhas

Not really. It sacrifices leg length to show curvy bits. It's a trade-off. Or a pants-off.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: OK let me clear this fasion up once and for all.

I don't believe that is correct.

Re: Expresso?

Christ, I don't care as much about misspellings as you, YR, and it's my job to care.

Re: I remember this site!

It's good, it's a self-selecting group of shallow berks who are welcome to each other.

Sorry, I mean YEAH IT'S LIKE RACISM.

Re: Sounds like a business opportunity to me

There's an ugmo site that got some attention recently when one unpretty person met another one through it and then dumped her and somehow it was a story.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: It's clearly a publicity stunt

Hi Graham! See Lester's update.

As it currently stands, counting the edit and this comment, you've got two mentions to the site's one. I think you win.

Re: Title?

I'm saying nothing.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: not at all, old lad.

What *is* it with you lot and 'females'? You realise it makes you sound like you're talking about horses or something. We are *women*, if you don't mind.

Re: Re: A throng of ladies

I bet it's not.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: A throng of ladies

You would need very sophisticated instruments to be able to identify precisely how little I care about this now. I am changing it to 'string' but there will be no need for you to go running around your place of work with your shirt over your head.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: Title? We don't need no stinkin' title!

Heh. You got served.

Re: You realise

You can't ignore the clanging impact of the word. It has too much attached to it.

Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

Re: Indeed.

I think it's the only sane move for the makers to change the name - leaving it as it was would be a huge distraction, overshadowing the rest of it, causing needless controversy and messing with people's suspension of disbelief. It's a sensible decision on artistic grounds.
