  1. That last episode was not the best episode ever, but it has the best scene of any R&M episode.
  2. Frank Costana RIP. Serenity now. Strangely, despite being a Seinfeld fan I never knew that the actor who played Frank was Ben Stiller's father.
  3. On the Beach by Nevil Shute is on offer at 99p. A classic end-of-the-world novel from the 1950s when the threat of nuclear war was new, terrifying, and seemed likely. Very well written, if you can handle the dark subject matter and misogyny of that would suit the Connery-era James Bond. Certainly a very different take to the wastelands and roving marauders from other works of fiction and worth a read if this genre floats your boat. Blurb from the back cover:
  4. Alice Fraser's stand up show, Savage, is worth watching. Funny, yes, but also rather powerful and intimate.
  5. I saw it several years ago and remember it being fascinating, but can remember nothing else about it. Probably worth a rewatch.
  6. Argos seem to be getting regular stock. I ordered one earlier this week for collection tomorrow.
  7. All the are solid games. It depends which of the following best draughts you, IMO: If you want TLoU with more action, then GoW will fill that need. If you like comics then Spiderman is the best comic book game ever. The DLC is worthy, but not as amazing as the main game. H:ZD is like a post-apocalyptic Mass Effect, with worse characters but better combat. Enjoy Spiderman, but definitely try GoW as well. I assume you have played the Yakuza games? Yakuza 0 is a masterclass in combining a tight open world game with a strong narrative.
  8. I started Y 3 days ago. The first black person I met in Okinawa... Slow clap, Japan!
  9. Trevor Noah's Born a Crime is 99p today. I enjoyed it (as much as one can enjoy a book that describes Apartheid in South Africa from the perspective of a mixed race child). Really well written and engaging.
  10. One episode would either involve Larry claiming to be socially distancing to avoid meeting someone he does not like, or getting irate because Ted Danson used social distancing as an excuse to avoid Larry before going for dinner at Jeff's. "You know what you are, Ted? You're a deceitful distancer."
  11. I can forgive this series for a lot. I mean, the show was resurrecting a TV series that finished over 20 years ago and is still held up as an example of excellent television. Much like the recent Star Wars sequels, one group wants to relive the old days and the other wants something new, and this show tried to do both. But the internal consistency was flawed, which is something that was rarely an issue with TNG and DS9-era Trek, and is painfully obvious in this show. I thought that the end was going somewhere really interesting before it took a detour:
  12. I watched this with the missus last night. I was aware of the hype for a while, and at £2.99 on Amazon it was a no-brainzzz-er. Unfortunately an Amazon review gave away a bit more than I wanted - I should know better by now to avoid reading reviews. I convinced my wife, who hates anything gory, that we should watch together. By the end she was loving it. Everything just ties together so well. If you want to see another excellent film that hits the same beats, then watch Fish Story. Do not read any reviews - just watch it. POM!
  13. Wargroove has online multiplayer, IIRC. Not sure that it would be the busiest server at this point though.
