I hate The Good Life, I hate it.
Felicity 'Treacle' Kendal and Richard 'sugar flavoured snob' Briars. THEY'RE NOTHING BUT A COUPLE OF REACTIONARY STEREOTYPES, CONFIRMING THE MYTH THAT EVERYONE IN BRITAIN IS A LOVABLE MIDDLE CLASS ECCENTRIC, AND I HATE THEM!!

Hehe - my thoughts exactly - https://youtu.be/bomygz1Ygkk?t=29

I liked the casting of Lando Calrissian. I'd much prefer this was a Calrissian prequel movie TBH, as there's a lot less of his background we know about, so it could make for a more interesting story.

I'm worried that Solo will just be an exercise in box-ticking - Rescues Chewie (tick), Wins the Millenium Falcon (tick), Does the Kessel Run (tick)...

Although I didn't get the reference to (quoting form memory) 'mental time travel'?

As I understand it, The Thousand Yard Stare is a technique whereby a  person's mind operates at a faster speed than everything else - hence in an actual year, a scientist gets about a thousand years of 'thinking' time - hence coming up with ideas that would normally not be seen for millenia.

It's a pretty cool idea IMO, and explains that rapid technology jump from Invasion to the ABC Warriors / Volgan war.

Didn't the prog run an adaptation of 'A Life Less Ordinary'? Yeowell art if I didn't dream it...

Yep, Progs 1063 to 1070.

Also did a one-off Shaun of the Dead tie-in story in prog 1384.

I'm sorry but I can't watch that kind of TV... so many annoying people in one room!

WTF is that stupid hat and beard combo about, what is he trying to distract from hmm?

:( I love Mythbusters...

Anyways - they managed to do it with a Shotgun and an M1 Garand, but handguns didn't work.

Just remembered another thought I had - In the middle of a desperate war and evacuation, why is one of the rebel commanders coming to work in an evening gown? Was she at a dinner dance when the baddies attacked and didn't have time to change?

Well, if it worked for Mon Mothma...

Although I'm gutted we'll have to wait a year to hear Fox's reaction to the Apocalypse War

It's only 6 weeks until the next year, so not that long to wait :)

The curvy front side pieces on the underside of Alpha's helmet are held on with white-tack (:-[) since I couldn't find a workaround and it looked better that way (to me, at least).  Discussions with Feliks led to us both bemoaning the fact that Lego don't do tiles with studs on both sides; the missus suggested white-tack so we went with that.

Could you stick a technic half-pin (https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=4274#T=C), inside the 1x2 slope brick, and attach that way?

Nowhere on broadcast / streaming.

It's up on Google Play, and I assume iTunes.

EDIT: Although I found it on GP in my browser, it's not showing up on my phone, so I guess it's not available even there...
