Film & TV / Re: Current TV Boxset Addiction

THE CITY AND THE CITY
Based on some China Meiville book or other, starring David Morrissey and available on iPlayer. It has something to say about how we are conditioned to ignore parts of the world in which we live but other than that the first episode didn't really grab me, everybody speaks in exposition and a couple of the supporting performances really grate  so I doubt I will be watching further.

More like THE SHITTY AND THE SHITTY.

Howdo! I love Jaegir as well, one of the best strips in the prog at the moment IMO. Really brings a fresh view to the tired Nu-Earth universe, I just wish it appeared more often.

Does anyone know if the final 3 volumes will be sent together or as 2 books, then 1?
Thanks

Only more Abnett love from me, too!
I would say that he took a little while to get going in his 2000AD career. Very early SinDex is charming but his other early work has all been far bettered since:

BlackLight, Sacho Panzer, Atavar, Black Atlantic are all OK thrills.

I don't remember anything about Black Atlantic - shall have to have a look at the Heroes... blog to see if it rings any bells.

Comedy series from the Meg (253-255 & 276-278) about a bunch of misfits running a salvage/scavenger ship out in the aforementioned Black Atlantic. Art by Steve Roberts

Just completed my first rewatch and overall I didn’t mind the stuff that grated in the cinema such as:

Luke throwing away the light sabre, his overall attitude - basically that’s where he’s at

Leia’s force gliding thing - I am just ignoring the whole part of the film where she gets sucked out into space

The Casino planet sequence - it didn’t seem so long this time and as has been said on the original thread, just because the heroes try something doesn’t mean it has to work out

So yes overall quite enjoyed it. Still think the tone is too jokey.

Oh and another plot hole occurred to me. When the First Order are unable to catch up with the resistance ships, why didn’t they just send a few Star Destroyers ahead via a small light speed jump to cut them off?

I’m not sure hyperspace jumps are as precise as that. I know Han Solo did some fairly precise jumping in the Millenium Falcon in the previous film but that was in a much smaller vessel, and the jumps were still fairly long.

For me Ron Smith is past his best at this point and again the colours just scream at you... not in a good way.

No artist could make that story readable (well, maybe Cam Kennedy), so I won't blame Ron.   But the colours are indeed vile.

OTOH, I quite like Cassanova's insanely busy art on RoboHunter: it's not entirely successful,  but I can see why Tharg thought he was a natural fit.

Hine's work is definitely pick of that litter.

Hello everyone! I started reading the prog about a year ago and basically wanted to talk about the thrills to other people. This was spurred on by reading Jaegir: Beasts Within and thinking "Man that was good, if only I had someone to discuss it with!"

Well you've come to the right place. We talk about 2000ad a lot... well sometimes... we can get distracted...

...what was I saying...

Welcome aboard, have fun.
