    Thoughts On The 2022 List

    On the years that have been included on my graph. The latest date for a fifth hit was 6th August in 2014. However the latest date for a sixth hit goes out to 7th December in 2011 when there were only 7 hits

    Deaths of the Silver Screen III

    Indeed Frank Williams is a hit for @Handrejka for another wonderfully British film One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing Who will be first to 2?

    Deaths of the Silver Screen III

    RULES  Pick a film with at least three (or four) remaining cast members and submit the name of the film and the three selected cast members on this forum  The first player to have all three of their cast members die wins the round. No two players can pick the same film but are allowed to duplicate cast members  If two players end up with their single remaining pick being the same performer then they are obliged to add a tie breaker to their team this can be any member of their film's cast or crew.   At the end of the round entries are wiped and everyone picks again. All films in the previous round are out of bounds (though could be reintroduced in the subsequent round). Winning films will go into the Hall of Fame and are out of bounds in perpetuity.  The Game will start as soon as your entry is submitted. All entries should be submitted before Thursday 14th April 2022 after which the late entries rules will be applied. Late entries will be accepted but they may not duplicate actors. Those that have already sent me teams via PM will be included on the Masterlist other wise post below but check the other entries and the banned list of films.

    The Dead of 2022

    One of those names that could so easily have ended up on the DL particularly because of the affection for Clive Dunn but he kept popping up at events associated with Dad's Army so I think most people thought he had a couple more years

    Thoughts On The 2022 List

    Tomorrow will be 82 days since the last hit which was the length of time between the second and third hits. So if this is a pattern we are due a pair of hits any day Last summer we had a gap of 151 days between hits 7 & 8 April to September

    Watching Richard Osman's House of Games this week I can help worry about the long term viability of Les Dennis. I know this is a repeat from 2021 but he looks very florid In the spirit of the show "Looking at Les Dennis which organ would he articulate might fail?"

    This smacks to me of the 1992-97 administration but there is a huge difference John Major didn't expect to win in 1992 and was sat on a slim majority Johnson gamed the 2019 election which gave him a parliamentary majority but without a huge popular vote. However they have both faced challenges on the world stage but most of Johnson's biggest problems are self inflicted and could only be avoided by Johnson not being himself. He is determined to carry on regardless so it falls to the cabinet to remove him as the 1922 committee has failed but that could look like an unholy civil war

    It is party chairman Oliver Dowden who has resigned. 'Sleep walking to defeat/something has to change" Just the first?

    Assuming that the Tories lose both by-elections today it does not automatically mean curtains for the Fat Lardy. He (under the current rules) be challenged again for 12 months but if one (or more) of his cabinet colleagues resigned it would but severe pressure on him and those who see their majorities evaporating at the next GE might push for some form of change. However the current cabinet is chock full of talentless, charismaless, self-serving, intellectually challenged bastards I cannot think of one who would either give up a job they know they could never dream of under any other leader (Dorres, Patel, Raab) or be afraid of the Heseltine rule (Truss, Sunak, Zahawi) which leaves very few options - Javid has resigned once before and nobody cared, Ben Wallace is probably in the best role he can be at the moment and hasn't made too many blunders, his resignation would be massive but not probably the best thing at the moment. Once you get outside the big rolls there are very few who people would actually think mattered so following this analysis I think the best person from the cabinet to resign to bring about the removal of Johnson would be.......... .......Kwasi Kwarteng Thoughts?

    20/20 + 2

    Time marches on as so we move into the Thirties with this competition It is quite fast and fun but you need to be on the ball but if you miss a round or two you can join in at any time Basically the aim of the game is to pick 20 candidates from the years 1922-1931.You need 2 from each year and you must have one male and one female from each year. Candidates only qualify if they have a national news article about their death in English and or an obituary. The game does not start until 1 January 2022 (UK Time Zone) and no teams can be posted before this time and will continue until the end of the year. As soon as one candidate from anyone`s list dies the pool will be immediately restarted and it is first come first serve. You can even be a bitch and steal someone`s entire list if you wish. It is a competitive game. The overall winner will be the person with most hits in the year. The pool restarts as soon as a link from the the qualifying Obituary is posted verifying age of the deceased (by their own standard).No two players can have duplicate picks and the age given in the article will be accepted as soon as the article is published and pasted to this site. It has to be decisive at the time the news breaks. If the age they give is different to the year of birth you don`t get a hit unless it is amended before another death that meets the criteria of a hit. There is no limit to the number of players and you can enter the round at any point. You may even miss some rounds if they are quick. You do not need an admin to confirm your pick if you have a QO to post your next round team but you may be challenged if it in any way suspect.

    British Character Actors

    It is interesting to note that her character, Mrs Rawston, has been recast in Series 2 but it was filmed under Covid restriction conditions so this may have influenced her decision to participate.

    Thoughts On The 2022 List

    Monica Vitti made the crowdsourced list but Lester Piggott was not on either Crowdsourced or eligible for the inverse deadpool as one of the most picked in the DDP so I do not think he really counts as a Miss in that sense.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I have been contemplating giving up my Netflix subscription but we decided to wait because there was a new version of Jane Austen's Persuasion due for broadcast in July Yesterday I watched the trailer for the said adaptation. Andrew Davies once said that adapting Jane Austen is actually really easy because she feeds you really great dialogue In the whole trailer I was struggling to detect any of Jane Austen's dialogue. It looked like it had been made for people who find Bridgerton and Downton Abbey too demanding

    Knockout Derby

    So if my sub had died before being promoted to the main team then they would be replaced but once they have gone onto the main team they count towards my total hits for the game. First one to six wins?
