  1. Ghastly looking episode for sure. Seemed to me more like a colour depth issue, like Mega-CD FMV:
  2. Sabreman

    Disco Elysium

    Well that's my interest in the sequel completely torpedoed.
  3. Fab! I really enjoyed this, and got a little gloomy at the prospect of waiting several months for the next one.
  4. Well there are at least four more seasons coming, so I expect there'll be plenty of ups and downs to come over the next 45-odd hours.
  5. Can't get into it tonight for obvious, responsible reasons, but that's my day off sorted.
  6. When the show started and she appeared in the bar I said to myself "She'd better be a regular character". So when they were calling up the hologram I said "They'd better bring that hostess in to identify him" and all we got was an out of focus background appearance, I felt jobbed out. What I'm saying is, that character is hot AF.
  7. We were hiring recently, and were honestly dumbfounded at the number of applications that came in specifying available hours due to 'streaming commitments' or similar considerations.
  8. This is one of my favourite things about movies, and why I tend to seek out and enjoy dramas that are essentially made for domestic audiences. They give a more genuine representation of the lives of people around the world just in their day to day details, and I get to spent time in the locations. I'm especially big on Japanese and Indian cinema for this. The films of Satyajit Ray, Yasujiro Ozu and Hirokazu Kore-eda in particular tend to be fairly straightforward stories (about complex individuals), but the sense of time and place is powerful and I feel like I've expanded my cultural awareness at least a little. Like Bazjam I do have a longtime attraction to Hong Kong cinema, especially from the 80s and 90s. It seemed so wildly chaotic, colourful and somehow strange with its mishmash of language and culture. I would have loved to spend time there pre-handover.
  9. Nothing stupid in the first episode. Tentatively optimistic.
  10. I enjoyed this. It's very low-key, and Hamm reigns in the comedy but there are some funny moments. He doesn't feel as on the ball as Chase, which may be truer to the books? Feels off when it's trying to be more wacky. I did enjoy the cast though, and it felt like it moved quickly.
  11. ^ "Let's split up" I love that trope in video games especially. There will be some contrivance where you have half a dozen party members, but you have to break into groups of three so that you "Don't draw attention". Irony being even as three you continually attract attention and get into fights.
