    The TV we watch...

    Couldn't agree more, but you should be watching it with the original German audio and subtitles.

    The TV we watch...

    It's an absolutely superb show. Surely the best ever TV series to deal with time travel. It's Netflix's bona fide masterpiece.

    IP-themed rides that have outgrown their IP?

    Ah okay - fair enough. It's probably much more famous in the UK due to frequent TV screeings. It was last on the BBC as recently as 2006 - at 10 in the morning, fully uncut!

    IP-themed rides that have outgrown their IP?

    Eh? Of course it was released. In fact, according to Wiki it was actually re-released five times between 1956 and 1986, the last time as a promotion for Splash Mountain.

    If you could put any roller coaster in your home park, what would it be and where would it go?

    Sacrilege! Hands off Funnyland! I love that place. Isn't it the last remaining 1930s funhouse in the world? If so I'd have expected it to have some sort of heritage protection.

    Six Flags park announced in Saudi Arabia

    There could be a more prosaic reason - the collapse of the Dubai housing market since 2014 due to oversupply.

    Do you think GCSE and A Level exams should go ahead in 2021?

    Anyone with an exemption from the final exam got an A grade, the assumption being that if you managed an average of an A grade in the first two exams, you were likely to get an A in the final. (Should probably point out that I only ever managed one exemption - first year maths. After that, I...

    Your Top 10 Movies.

    Ha! No, I'm not that keen on Bergman either. I just mentioned him as lazy shorthand for that type of dour Scandinavian drama. Truth is, his films aren't much like either Bergman or Python. They're difficult to pigeonhole (see what I did there?) because they really are quite unique and...

    Do you think GCSE and A Level exams should go ahead in 2021?

    Is this really a traditional UK approach? I genuinely don't know. At Glasgow University I had exams just before the Christmas and Easter breaks. If you got a high enough average score in those two exams, you were exempted from the final exam and granted a pass for the year. (This could well be...

    Your Top 10 Movies.

    Nice list @ECG! Noticed you gave a shout out to two Charlie Kaufman films (aka The World's Greatest Living Scriptwriter) but didn't mention him by name. It isn't always all about the director y'know! His latest film I'm Thinking of Ending Things is, as usual, quite superb. Nine Queens is...

    I'll just drop this here...a neat drone shot of the deserted pier during lockdown, from a BBC article.

    Quality Street; what are your top 3 flavours?

    Haven't had a tub for years to be honest, but I've gone for Purple One, Green Triangle and Coconut Eclair. The Purple One used to be better when it had a brazil nut instead of a hazelnut. And I miss the old Coffee Creme.
