What are some good natural history documentaries about the land and the environment, as opposed to animals?

I watched the Life of a Mountain films recently and thought they were just sublime.

Almost there, lads. 18th of December. Original cast reprising there roles, lots of practical effects where possible and a story which looks to be Naussica: The Live Action Movie from the new trailer.

Share your thoughts, fears, hopes and expectations.

Charming and engaging characters and an investing plot. I'm aware these aren't unique to Star Wars and weren't included in the four billion dollar purchase of the franchise, but the plot's redundant (spoiler: the Rebellion wins) and the characters are basically a shitty, not terribly dirty, half dozen.

At least Jyn Erso had a clearly defined backstory and clear motivation and development throughout. Unlike Rey who could magically do anything the plot required...total Mary Sue.

Sorry but TFA was a veiled reboot and a very lazy one at that, far from adding to the 'Skywalker Saga' it actually detracted from it. ROTJ left us with a happy ending of sorts. TFA undid that in a really shoddy manner. Han and Leia split up, Han gets killed....what a fucking downer. Rogue One on the other hand was fucking awesome; sure we knew how it would end, but it was a nice change from the Skywalker Saga and it filled in a bit of the history. PLUS speaking for myself, even though I KNEW how it would turn out, there was a large part of my brain that honestly believed that things were going to go wrong for the Rebels and that everything we knkw for a fact happens in ANH onwards was about to be undone...that's how powerful that third act was, especially in the last twenty minutes. Rogue One is vastly superior to TFA in pretty much every way, anyone who claims differently is a fanboy who refuses to accept that the 'little side story' was better thank the main saga entry. Then again though after the prequels, fanboys obviously had lowered expectations and forgot what a proper Star Wars movie is supposed to be like.

Also, Daisy Ridley is a fucking atrocious actress

I didn't like the "killing the guest" thing at first, but its actually quite amusing now and saves a lot of sycophancy ("So, you've a new book/show/film out...") that is required of such things. The later episodes are definitely better.

It's interesting how risqué they can be now - nailing the dildo to the steering wheel in the latest episode, for instance, just not the kind of thing they would ever get away with on the BBC.

So "Crackle" whoever the fuck they are are making a Snatch TV show. Judging by the trailer it's set in some sort of bizarro alternate contemporary London where nothing has changed in the past 30 years except the level of technology and variety of ethnics.

Not sure if it's just me, but the festive TV this year has been under par.

Inside No 9 was a bit of a let down. I haven't watched Charlie's 2016 Wipe yet, although I enjoyed Cunk on Christmas. I don't think there's anything of note I've missed; I don't watch Who but I heard the Christmas special was shite.

>Though it is never revealed what "special stuff" consists of, many have assumed that it is human meat. However, the writers have denied that this is the case, stating that they can think of "nothing more mundane than cannibalism", and indicating that it is something much worse. However, the Season 1 DVD includes a fragment of brainstorming materials in its bonus section, on which the idea of the butcher selling human appendices obtained from the local hospital is listed. Others suspect it is a highly addictive substance like cocaine, given various clues throughout Seasons 1 and 2. As revealed in season 2, Hilary's wife is a cow. Some may believe that the special stuff might be the meat of some kind of cow human hibrid that comes from his intercourse with the cow. Even the writers were apparently not sure what the special stuff was at the beginning of the series. When Briss takes Maurice along with him to receive a "special delivery" from deep in a dark forest, we see whom he gets the special stuff from: a tall ominous figure accompanied by a hunchbacked figure. It is shown that even Briss seems absolutely terrified of them. The only clue from the original live shows as to what the substance is that it rhymes with "drawstring", which has led some fans to believe that the "special stuff" is circumcised foreskins. Another clue is that the Hebrew for circumcision is Brit milah, [1] which, when used in everyday English, is known as a "Brit"--or, more regularly--a "Bris."

Yeah, because politics has always been a paragon of honesty. It's only since ~2012 that this whole post-truth business came about. Before that everyone was unfailingly honest.

>Looking at data from rust belt states which flipped from Obama to Trump is not an arbitrary criterion to use
Nobody said that. I said that aggregating them was arbitrary. I'm sure all three of us would agree that there's nothing wrong with looking at people's genitals, but I'm sure we'd also agree that taking the population as a whole and conclusion that on average we've got one ball each isn't reasonable.

In Iowa, Clinton received over 20% fewer votes than Obama did. In Ohio, she dropped over 400k. These two states represent more votes lost than the other three put together, and they were states that were expected to flip. Obama carrying Ohio a second time was itself unexpected - when the networks called it, the Romney camp called in to complain because their numbers were telling them otherwise, and Karl Rove memorably went into meltdown on live television. Nobody genuinely expected the other three to flip, not even in Trump's own campaign. Those two groups don't belong together as an aggregate.
