The Hindenburg explodes is a new comedy series by Rob Corddry. Featuring camp Nazis, an escaped Egyptian mummy, a time traveller, the Wright brothers (Wilbur had died 25 years before this is set) and a bonkers captain, who's related to the Red Baron.
On paper it sounds like it might be funny... Well if you manage to forget that 36 people died when LZ129 the Hindenburg crashed in flames on May the 6th 1937.
In fact it's about as funny as trying to bite a savage pit bulls nose. The graphics are so bad a 9 year old could do better on instagram, the script is grim, and the acting looks like an amateur dramatic production in a local village hall. ( a small village full of idiots)
Waynes rating 0/10 Give it a miss and boil your head for more fun....

There was a report recently that some eminent scientists claim there's a 50% chance we're living in a Matrix like fake world.
I'm not an eminent scientist but I do wonder what world I am living in....
Take my local town for example. It's like the night of the living dead there, people shuffling around looking baffled, half the shops shut by two in the afternoon. Motorists unable to drive the right way around a roundabout, it can't be real... can it?
Then yesterday, I got up had a scrub and a cuppa, and a few hours later I'm in a place that makes Rattlesnake antivenom, I mean WTF! Why would a place like that even be here, Rattlesnakes aren't really much of problem where I live on account of there not being any, indeed I haven't even seen an Adder in years never mind a bloody Rattlesnake.
Well I suppose that proves we live in a Matrix world, or maybe it's just I have a strange life....

Well the grand Tour started today with a huge and expensive intro (2.5 million I'm told) then the show got into gear properly. Was it good? Well I found it good fun, and like the Top Gear of old, a car show but entertainment as well.
Theres lots of screaming Tyre's, people getting killed, silly bets, and a sort of "stig" called the American (probably for legal reasons)
If you liked the old Clarkson Hammond and May version of Top Gear you'll probably like this version of the Grand Tour.
THE BOYS ARE BACK!
Well the long awaited Grand Tour starts tonight, the Top Gear guys (the real ones not the shit ones) are back! Yahhhhhh!!!
Come on firestick, come on firestick, come on you bastard where are you.... the bloody programs on in a few hours...
Apparently anti social media is awash with the shock suspicions that the Apprentice is fixed... This claim is backed by the "evidence" that the contestants are seen wearing coats and scarves when they get the taxi home after being sacked....
Fact, the show isn't fixed in that sense. Yes Lord Sugar probably has a bloody good idea which one of two or three of the candidates will make a possible business partner, lets face it half of them are non-starters even by my standards, and Lord Sugars seen their business plans which gives him an even better idea.
The "evidence" doesn't stand up though. You see the segment with the candidates getting a taxi home is filmed all in one day at the very beginning of the series, the coats and scarves are to hide what the candidate is wearing, thats to avoid any continuity problems later on, such as the candidate wearing a red shirt and blue tie the day they get sacked, but having a green shirt and pink tie the day the taxi sequence is filmed.
Not only is this well known, even Lord Sugar himself mentions it in his book of the series. He's also said the show is never scripted, they did try it at the beginning of the very first series, but he told them, he's a business man, not an actor.
Well I've seen my possible new motor, looks good. nice seats, parking sensor, traction control (WTF do I need that for, I make captain slow look like Lewis Hamilton compared to me) Tons of room, turbo diesel engine so it'll hopefully be cheaper to run, and it's my favorite car colour.... silver (well unless its a Ferrari, then it's red) Next thing is to see what happens when I check the insurance price...

The car I have works fine but it's getting on now and starting to look a bit tatty around the edges, so today I'm going to see a newer car, different make and diesel so it should be a bit cheaper to run.
I really wanted something a bit smaller but this ones even bigger than the car I have now, at this rate in ten years my car will reach from one end of the street to the other. Trouble is I have to be able to get a wheelchair and a load of shopping in plus 3 or 4 people, thats a bit tricky now, doo-able but a fiddle.
Still lets see if this ones any good first.
