Annoyingly, I was dying to see it and then missed the first episode, so I spent last night trying to work out who was who and what the hell was going on. Looks pretty good so far. Ralph 'Camberwell Carrott' Brown is an early stealer of scenery.

Take your moronic television-talk elsewhere please.[/quote:597f91aa3e]
Speed Demon, you're somewhat of a hypocrite,you've TAKEN PART in non-northern irish music threads in this very forum, including pro choice, and The Ulsterscot stance on a Britain without Scotland, and that's only in the last few pages of your post counts. Just because you might not like the show, doesn't make it "moronic television-talk".
I'm sorry, but is this not the section of the forum entitled "general", and not "general music discussion"?
Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, kids.
Use some brains next time.
Also, "moronic television talk"?
I'm pretty sure that everyone at some point has watched a tv programme and then wanted to discuss it. Don't act like your above people just because you don't like the programmes they watch.
But yeh. I think they've gotten into the whole plot too fast, what with mark starting to speak again in the first episode and danny getting arrested in the 2nd.
Also, Zoe pisses me off. She's a typical stuck up little brat.
General Forum: "Discussion, information, opinion and banter on the music scene and its related trappings"
That's a [i:d2defb5ee9]guideline[/i:d2defb5ee9] though, not a commandment.
Personally I reckon this thread is on the wrong side of the fuzzy line, unless there's some local connection I'm not aware of. I'm tolerant of such things so long as there is plenty of more relevant NI music discussion going on around it, but if there is not, then I'd prefer folks put their efforts into generating some instead of opting for celeb/tv gossip.
I think it's traditional to give everyone a little dig around their 200th post to keep them on track.
I just passed 500 today, what do I get?
I actually didn't know the general forum was supposed to be only music related.
It always annoyed me when people would say "This is not music related".
I figured most music related things were covered in the other forums.
Oh well I'll stop posting stupid topics(somebody please sticky my crime related thread for about a month though please)
This forum is a great place because you can talk about things with people from NI without it turning into something like this:
I hope the music related rule is never that strictly enforced
Oh and annie, I finally took a picture of my self with a sign for your project but my camera got stolen :lol:
i think the sheer number of specific music-related fora means there's almost not that much that fits in 'general' anymore - discussion about glasgowbury is in 'gigs'; that fella's stratocaster related tax fraud is in 'equipment'; graham smith, marcus music and local music journalists have all been banished to 'industry', etc etc.
so maybe here we might as well talk about healy going to fulham or celebrity big brother or russian anti-nazis and whatever else is happening in the real world.
Also, in an effort to give this a tenuous link to Northern Irish music, has anyone noticed that Mark, the mumbling loon from Cape Wrath is the button of Mark, the mumbling loon from local rockers 'Ash'?

So are you gonna post that in every thread on the General Forum that isn't about the Northern Irish music scene?
There was literally no need for your sarcastic post.
I'm raging I missed last night's episode, though I'm in the process of finding it on the interweb. I thought the first episode was good, and it seems to be quite a good idea for a show.[/quote:bf39502d12]
much like forum and fora, apparently, with people slightly more keen on the latin one:
"Plectrum" has both a Latin-based plural, plectra, and a native English plural, plectrums. Plectra is used in formal writing, particularly in discussing the harpsichord as an instrument of classical music. However, plectrums is more common in ordinary speech. In vernacular speech the abbreviation pleck or "plec" (plural: plecks) is sometimes used.
