    Hi all,
    We have received a number of requests relating to the introduction of an off-topic thread on FSA. We have a good community here and so myself and Mr. Moon have decided to give it a go.

    A few rules...
    1) Please refrain from using foul language, acting the maggot or doling out insults. As Bill and Ted said, be excellent to each other.
    2) No discussion relating to FSA.
    3) No discussion relating to soccer - that's that the soccer forum is for.
    4) No spoilers for any tv show/film - take it to the correct forum

    If we think things are going well, we will make it a permanent fixture on the forum. However, if we feel that it is more trouble than it's worth, it will be closed.

    Cheers :) Without any spoilers, did the last episode live up to expectations?

    Best show on television by a mile! Hoping Todd and Lydia in particular come to a nasty end!

    Kinda hoping Jesse survives, not exactly expecting a happy ending for him, but think he deserves some sort of redemption.

    I've a feeling there'll be new rules every 10 minutes and I assume number 5 will be no talking about a certain somebody close to Mr.Prodston's um.....heart :pac:

    Great idea, it's almost like some of us could even become friends :eek:

    I was more than happy with it and it enforced itself as the best TV show I've seen, just can't believe it's over :(

    I was satisfied, yes! Did the show justice with the ending I felt.

    No enterprise that started with a Bill and Ted reference ever turned out bad. I have high hopes for this thread.

    (and don't watch Breaking Bad)

    I'd love nothing more than to cut Mickey off but we've been through too much together with all the comings and goings. Plus I'm trying to limit it's usage to the weekends when he comes out to play, maybe get weaned off in time :p

    I watched the first episode when Sky were advertising it heavily. Thought it was quite good but haven't seen anymore yet. It's on my list though and with BB over and finishing Dexter too I've got room for something new.

    People are saying it's very good?


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,274 ✭✭✭✭ Mr.Prodston


    :eek:

    And this is where Mr.Prodston has over stepped the mark and backs away slowly :pac:

    If you share a tip, it never wins. That has always been my experience. What odds?

    Probably one of the babies of the forum but 22, soon to be 23 and started a Masters last week.

    Watched the first 2 series as they came out and then spent the summer 12 months ago reading the books. I'm as much a nerd about Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire as I am about FPL, absolutely love them.

    Anybody care to recommend a brilliant sports book for me, I'm currently trying to fill a couple of shelves to complete my library, after that I can weed out the rubbish, when I die I would like for there to be a custody battle for my sports library. I'm currently reading a fascinating book about cycling in Rwanda, doesn't sound like the most obvious subject for a book but it's by the former editor and feature writer for the Observer Sports Monthly, anyone who remembers that publication will know of it's quality.
