The local ne'er-do-wells  keep waving at me in the street when I wear a certain combination of baseball cap and jacket. They keep thinking I look like one of their mates.

Agreed their plan made no sense though.

Lots of basil, character moments and plot progression in this one (and some unexpected laughs) but very exciting and well done tension at the end. Even though they didn't need to make the predicament quite so horrible.

So, I was wrong about the Red Angel.

An oddly frustrating episode — it felt very much like an entire additional episode had been cut from the running order as they jump straight from having no clue what was going on, to knowing who the Red Angel is (ostensibly) and finding out what the mysterious Project Daedalus is despite having literally only just learned of its existence.

Add on top of that the fact that the ‘trap’ makes no sense whatsoever because they don’t know that the Angel isn’t Burnham — if it was, then she would remember coming up with and discussing the plan and would know that she isn’t going to die, because she’s not dead.

So, yeah… not pleasantly surprised by this one.

Yeah, that one was a dud. Don't think I'm enjoying this season as much as the last, despite the steering back to more "recognizable" Trek. For all its flaws, at least Season 1 was trying to tread new ground. This one's just a hot mess.

I understand Burnham is the main character the show focuses on but her being the absolute center of quite literally EVERYthing potentially cataclysmic in the universe (twice now, if we're counting) is getting a little tiresome.

Also, while I'm all for dumping canon in favor of good story and character, and have given Discovery a lot of leeway, now it turns out Section 31 not only has time travel figured out but also technology to travel anywhere in the universe in a jiffy. It's a bit much, basically.

Ehh. Get off my lawn.

For a few seconds I thought of Witchworld....

Climbed the Exposition mountain that was Dredd - once again, it's a fine enough premise, but I just don't get on with this style at all. Also, could Pon not have told the Judges themselves that as a seeming human he would be killed?  So he didn't/couldn't make Dredd aware of that himself? I know the idea there was to make a point, but as a final "kicker" it fails, if only as it removes any agency from Pon once he is away from his human partner.

Bad Company is so good. First time I've read it. Hope the next volume comes quickly.

The GOSH prints were signed by BB at the Cursed Earth HC release and haven't sold out to this day even at a quite reasonable £25.

I don't think the prints on sale now are signed by the great man! There were 100 signed and numbered prints available on the day and I think they sold out...
