  1. Well that was just superb. Character development, a proper disaster of the week, and major plot points in the background. Easily the best Trek in the modern era.
  2. The Orville. They tone down the knob jokes after the first couple of episodes and it delivers proper TNG style stories. You can imagine some of the lines being delivered by Riker or Data very easily.
  3. Den Of Geek gave it a really good review. https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/ghostbusters-afterlife-review/
  4. And next we can do a poll to prove that In The Pale Moonlight is the best single episode. Or maybe The Siege of AR558….
  5. It was a chip shop/cafe with a DD cab that was my intro to this, though I think I preferred dropping coins in Robocop that I was better at.
  6. Paul Winfield (one of the cops in Terminator)
  7. Sounds good. I’m happy with three a month as it’s easier to keep up.
  8. I’m probably around 200 hours, maybe a bit more, but not evenly spread through the year. I don’t budget my time, but I definitely bear it mind when choosing what to play. A single player game that needs 40+ hours is really off putting as I could be on that for months.
  9. Now we’re 5 eps in, for anyone that has read the comics, is this following them?
  10. This ^^^^ There’s a remaster available so it looks better, and is always worth watching.
  11. I wasn’t aware this was coming, and as a pretty big Star Wars fan who doesn’t know that much about anime, it’s still really appealing. Just watched (and loved) the first episode so I’ll try and rinse the rest this weekend.
  12. I’ve got a PS5 so definitely don’t *need* one, but am tempted even if just for flight sim.
  13. If by some chance people get two, I'd potentially be interested in one
  14. Saw this last night (IMAX, probably 30-40 people in there so loads of room) and it was really good fun. Some of my favourite marvel films are the ones where I know nothing about the characters and story and this didn't disappoint. Really good fight scenes and more character driven than many of them. A solid 8/10 film. At a tangent, there's a lot of different films and TV series in Phase 4, and it's not so obvious how it might come together.
  15. Seaton seems to have turned a corner with some overdue redevelopment going on. There’s a nice big Tesco and housing estate behind the front, and the tramline is a big draw. Along the front there are some mixed use developments going up and other signs of life returning.
  16. Five years ago we went to Ryde on the Isle Of Wight and found a bunch of old cabs in one of the arcades. There was a very high chance that I’d used the same machines thirty years before.
  17. Yep, there is definitely a market for stand alone episodes like this, as well as the 10 episode story arc.
  18. I only read it once a few years back, and it just didn’t click for me. It was Ok, but that’s about it.
  19. Yep, same here. Not really what I want from Ted Lasso but Beard in the club(s) was good.
  20. Apple TV is the perfect subscription service to drop in and out of. There are some awesome shows but it’s not high volume so just pay five quid and rinse it for a month then stop. Come back in a few more and repeat. Ted Lasso alone is worth a fiver
  21. And for a “both great but very different”, how about The Running Man? I’d love to see the book done faithfully by HBO, but there’s a lot of fun in seeing Arnie hamming it up.
  22. Possibly the opposite to what was intended, but The Warriors and Starship Troopers are far more enjoyable than the novels they are based on.
  23. First three episodes of this are available. All the men on the planet die, apart from one chap and his pet monkey. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8042500/ I’ve not read any of the comics, so don’t know if it’s a faithful adaptation but it’s pretty good so far.
