The Tomorrow People (1970-79)

Been working my way through this slice of 70's children's daftness all year, in between other stuff. Unlike Who of the era, which is some of the best Tv sci-fi ever committed to screen, TTP is best enjoyed with all sensibilities switched off and purely enjoyed through the eyes of your 7 year old self. Had I watched the entirety of the run at that age, rather than the fragmented VHS releases I was exposed to regularly, I may have been more fond of it. I adore the sincerity of it all, it's daft and naff and cheesy but very enjoyable, but not essential by any stretch. Doomwatch it is not. But fun.

For once I wasn't too fussed about getting cliffhangered in a series finale because Dark Matter kind of lost me somewhere, despite a promising start.
Don't get me wrong, I loved that DS9 flipped from an episodic sci-fi show recycling old Star Trek episodes to a show about how gnarly war is and how that single arc could come to dominate everything else, but that was - HOLY SHIT - 20 years ago now and it's really about time space operas bought themselves a new idea.

Not quite a box set, but I did binge the first few episodes of Mayans MC, a spin-off from Sons Of Anarchy about the Sons' sister club whose operations straddle the US/Mexico border, and it continues SOA's unironic toxic masculinity schtick really well, including one of the most hilariously bad theme tunes I've ever heard.  There's probably some guilty liberal articles to be written about the only Latino-centric show on a major US network being about drug-dealing rapist criminal scum, but before that ruins it for everyone, the show is worth a gander for those who like good bad television.

The cover was pretty good, I thought. A nice striking image.

I really enjoyed the ending of Dredd but think there's more yet to come.
Lots of you have mentioned Dredd's odd judgement and the odd behaviour of the reporter. Could the exploding stupid gun be the cause? Some sort of low level decision hindering effect?
I thought the images of perps falling from the sky were a bit too graphic. In the old days this would have been handled with a satisfying 'SPLATT!'

Survival Geeks was fun again this week. This slasher plot was far more enjoyable than the Dr Who thing but I really don't like any of the main characters. Maybe the should develop into slightly more sympathetic leads?

Mechastopheles continues to play all the right notes just not necessarily in the right order.

The Future Shock was very good. I thought the script was a little clunky. The dialogue didn't quite flow for me. A minor niggle though, it was a strong story.

I enjoyed The Order as always, mainly because it's full of bonkers energy. Christ knows what's going on but it's still enertaining me for now.

Hi Dodsy, Last year the gig was in the same place and it was like this:

Trinity kitchen is a slightly seperate food court to the shopping centre. There were bouncers on the escalators checking wristbands and stuff.

In the party itself there were noisy bits and quiet bits so it was overall a really good venue with some variety in the experience available. The food and drink vendors are all open from what I remember as well.
This was the big talking point me, Bolt and nano-Bolt and the Psychedelic Journal Duo found last year. After hours of deliberating where to eat and walking further from the town centre, only to stumble on this place by tacking the elevator to the wrong floor....freaking brilliant. Lovely venue.

Regarding that cover, and more specifically that strapline: "flowed", surely?

Indeed.

Maybe it's 'flown' in the sense of 'sprayed through the air from daystick beatings and gunshot wounds'...?

Nah, me neither.

Am I blind or is there no creator credits box on Storm Warning because I really preferred the art to Tom Fowler's first story and would like to know who did it.

Does anyone know how the mid-con party works? I've never made it to the party before (or Trinity Kitchen for that matter).
Is it a club night or more of a pub/ get together?

Perhaps the tone comes across poorly, but to me the interview read rather arrogantly.
