Network recently (OK about 18 months ago, thats how long my too watch pile is) had a sale on, and I nabbed both boxsets covering all three seasons of Robin of Sherwood and so far, it's a bloody good romp. Props have to be given to try and expand the mythos into mystical territories and the relatively high production values must have made it quiet the treat at the time. Good stuff so far as I close out Season 1.

Man, that's one of those shows that immediately takes me back to doing my homework in front of the telly on a Saturday evening. It should have ended after season 2 when Michael Praed left - he is replaced by James Bond Jr in season 3 but it never quite reaches the heights of those first 2 seasons.

Those look great Leigh. I’ve only just started to perp my ones.

Wrong game - that's for Dredd miniatures!  :lol:

in "Vienna" (I think), Dredd stuns the perp with a glancing shot to the head - can't remember if it mentions whether it's a special round or just an implausibly effective use of a standard execution bullet.

 :lol: Fair enough!

Hank Pym may be a genius in quantum physics but he'd be a crap architect - I seem to recall some story about building your house on sand.....

Ant Man & The wasp - a fun but inconsequential addition to the canon. the shrinking and growing effects are marvellously done and many of the tropes from the first film are repeated - Michael Pena reapeats his long explanation acted out in flashbacks schtick, familiar pop-culture items are shown in massive scale - last time it was Thomas the Tank Engine, this time it's a Hello Kitty Pez dispenser. Did anyone else wonder how the lab, the delicate equipment and the people inside survived all that mucking about?

Good stuff. And, yes, stay for the mid and end credits scenes.

I'd say you should definitely stay for the mid credits one as it contains importation plot teasers for the ongoing story (intriguing - wonder what THAT was all about?), but I was annoyed to have sat through the rest of the interminable credits for a throwaway sight gag which we'd already seen

Tales From the Crypt  ... The best story is the one set in the home for the blind.

Oh yes - I somehow saw this film far too young and that one really disturbed me!

Hmm .. don't like the sound of an entire series being mined from the plot of the movie. I look at so many of these Netflix SF series and think that they sound like a great movie synopsis but can't be arsed watching that idea stretched over 13 hours.

looking for new stuff on Netflix I came across the TV series of From Dusk till Dawn - is this any good or will it just piss on one of my favourite movies?

So Pat Mills was "quite chatty" - gotta be the understatement of the century!  :lol:

New Rok website which has a cool competition - get your name on the back of one of the team's shirts - a great excuse to get the comics out and read again!

Well worth checking out


John Wagner' biog picture alone is worth a visit  :lol:

I don't really get where this alternative deadworld stuff is coming from - I've always considered it to be "our" deadworld and haven't seen anything to contradict that, besides a few minor nit-picks that would not have even registered if they hadn't been pointed out. Should add that I'm LOVING this story!

yeah but you don't like Deadworld so you're weird!

Final Space on Netflix was a lot of fun - 10 part scifi cartoon, which ended up with plenty of dangling threads suggesting a second series. Is it worth watching? Tribor says, yes it is!

so they played all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order?

 :P  :D

almost went with a more recent ref from Four Lions when the police spokesman says "Let me be clear - we did shoot the right man, but the wrong man exploded"
