Never realised the first series of Magnum had a different theme tune. It was shit.


Jazz funk guitar and 1970's tinkly piano and horns.

It was rather awful.

Also, The Flash TV series is 20 years old.

For the first 11 episodes, yeah, then the theme we know and love debuted with episode 12.

I've been watching it on Netflix

Hey Shifty, there's an update in the voices list that I think you and Gimli would like.

I'm thinking that all the trees look so beautifully green today - I think the rain washed them.

I believe i have seen a future contender for the Darwin Award. A cyclist came flying down a pedestrianised street straight out in front of a car. The driver applied the brakes and sounded the horn only for the cyclist to raise a middle finger at him and speed away without even pausing.

Yeah, it's a good show, quite well written. It is actually seen by many as a show that never 'jumped the shark' and it kept the four main cast members throughout its entire 8 season run. Never lost any, never added any which is unusual for a US show that lasts that long. And Tom Selleck is cool as Magnum, witty, charming but also a bit of a chump sometimes.He is not the perfect hero but he gets the job done. A lot of the humour from other characters, especially Higgins, comes at Magnum's expense. It is certainly a show that requires re-visiting.

I'm quite looking forward to the Did You See The Sunrise? episode. Can't remember it much from when I was a bairn but after reading up about the show online it seems to have been quite controversial at the time.

Why do some people get het up about their partners keeping mementos of their life before they hooked up with each other?

We're moving house soon so I've been up in the attic going through my old junk. Among the stuff I found were pictures of me with old girlfriends. Most of the pictures have us within the group of friends I had at the time so it's nice to have something to remember those times by but my wife has gone into a right huff about it. I mean, I'm not ever going to be sorry that I had an enjoyable life before I met my wife and me getting rid of the photos just point blank isn't happening. I just can't understand that type of mind-set to be honest.

I can't either. Luckily neither I nor the Mrs care about that sort of thing. Her dad even has a photo of her wedding to her ex-husband on the wall, simply because its a nice photo of her and her family all together (mother has since passed away), and I know this, which is why it doesn't bother me.

I had a similar problem with an ex-girlfriend.

I mean, I was wanking over the photos, but come-on it wasn't as if I was actually having sex with them. Silly cow.

Is it wrong that while watching Flight all I kept thinking about Denzil Washington's character was 'this bloke's cool as fuck'?

I work with a bunch of people who I consider friends as opposed to just workmates. One of my friends even joined my current work because I told him about the vacancy. We're also very socially active as a group together. Any social outings are usually attended by a lot of folk. And there's a core few of us who are usually always at any social events.

Anyway, went in to work this morning and asked my pal what he'd been up to last night after work, and he said he'd gone out and got smashed. I asked who he'd been with, thinking it was probably friends outside of work, but he'd been with somebody from work, who I admittedly don't know aswell. Fair enough, I thought. But then he mentioned everyone else who'd joined them .... all of them being friends within the particular core I was talking about. And so immediately I felt a little upset that nobody had thought to send me a text or call me, so I just made my feelings known by saying, in a half jokey tone, 'Oh well that's nice, thanks for the invite!', and he replied, 'I knew you'd react like that!'

So, he knew the fact I was left out of a social gathering of my friends would make me feel hurt and then gets angry when I confirm this.

I spoke to my flatmate earlier who thought I was overreacting by being upset, which made me feel annoyed. Am I being over dramatic about it?

The fact my friend said, 'I knew you'd react like that', makes it sound like I'm constantly being moany about being left out of things, which doesn't make sense since I've never been left out before! I would understand it if I was always whinging about not being invited to things, but that's never happened.

That combined with another workmate saying she doesn't understand why I'm not better yet as somebody she knows has had X amount of operations and was running again in 6 weeks, or somebody else had a hysterectomy and were back at their work doing heavy lifting very quickly, made me feel like utter crap today.

To give the workmate who got smashed the benefit of the doubt, there may be some reason why you weren't asked, even if it was just a simple of case of him forgetting.
As for the one who doesn't understand why you're not better yet - she sounds like an utter arsehole.

This is true, and I think it wouldn't bother me so much if it had just been him and one other person. I'm not upset because of him not contacting me, I'm upset because nobody did and the whole 'gang' (so to speak) were there. Including two people I happened to text separately about other matters.

Despite that, nobody thought to be like, oh yeah, by the way, we're in the pub!

Hmm, yes, well I won't lie - if that was me I'd be a bit peeved. The sensible thing to do would be either ask them about it or just let it go and forget about it. .However, I'm owt but sensible so if it were me I'd deliberately not talk to any of them, ignore all their texts, communicate only in grunts and generally stomp around in a massive fuck off huff for the rest of the week.

To be honest if it was just a one off then it really wouldn't bother me in the slightest but if it was an regular occurrence then it might just.
I think the best thing to do would be just to get on with it.Still act cool around your work mates and so fourth.Making any queries or disturbance might actually do you more harm than good in the long run.

This.

Despite understanding how you feel, i've learned that there's really no point dwelling on it.
