Film & TV / Re: Current TV Boxset Addiction

Picksy you’re right what you say regarding the Jedi and sometimes wish order 66 was shouted out before they send another division of clones to their “glorious” death.
I do sometimes route for the separatists wanting to destroy the Republic - it would have saved the Rebels (who no doubt were mostly separatists anyway) a lot of lives.

Should be mentioned. The middle arc s07e5-8 isnt everyones' favorite. Dont let it put you off from watching episodes 9 - 12.

The middle arc was fine.  I enjoyed it as much as the first arc.  It was nice to see Ahsoka in that sort of situation.  She is really shinning as a character in this season :)

I don't know what I'm going to watch when I finish Clone Wars.  I was thinking of rewatching Buff the Vampire Slayer as I have found copies of the proper 3:4 original episodes.

Frasier is my favourite US sitcom.  Mainly for Niles' character arc and Roz and Daphne, who are excellent.  The sitcom does come across as anti-intellectual and conservative especially in the early seasons, but there are other readings to be had with it as well.  All in all I can always find great amounts of entertainment every time I rewatch it.  I think it concludes nicely as well.  I'm left disappointed it has finished but in a place where I can move onto the next thing.

I too am watching CW from the beginning as I stopped after my kids grew up and stopped watching & and now I can watch in piece 😂 (only up to season 4 and with there being 20+episodes each season I’ve still got a bit too go).
You’re right Pictsy it has its highs and lows. I know I shouldn’t but I’ve had to stop myself from shouting at Anikin & the rest of the Jedi council for not sensing the Dark side in the Chancellor every time they meet😣
It’s good to know the “rebel’s” is also decent as that’s what I’ll do next.

Games / Re: Last game played...
« on: 12 May, 2020, 05:12:35 PM »
I finished Red Dead Redemption 2 in February after sinking about 60-70 hours into the single player. Then I replayed the original Red Dead Redemption and now I've immediately gone back to play RDR2 again from the start.

Simply put, RDR2 is the best game I've ever played. It's hard to recommend on that basis because I honestly didn't feel that way until about 35 hours in but it's the investment and the character building that makes it hit so hard and profoundly at the end.

So yeah, wonderful game and experience that I wish it was possible to somehow share with people who don't play video games!
I’m a usually a once a week gamer and I really enjoyed playing snip elite 4 which I thought was really good then at Xmas my boy got me RDR2 and WOW I was blown away ( I know you regular gamers will have many “better” games)
As you said Magpie the character build is superb I’m only 50% through and I am getting carried away with all the side missions/challenges even just away on a hunt or fishing just for the heck of it.
Roaming around this huge world is superb.
For me the pace is ideal as you can decide how fast you want to go through the story good or bad!
I too will redo the story once I’ve completed and got a bit quicker on the draw.

I’ve started season 4 of Fear after giving up after season 2 and rather surprising I’m enjoying it. Maybe because I’m not comparing it all the time with the books as with TWD. This particular season reminds me of when TWD were kicked out of the prison and their journey to Alexandria.
I’m half way through and hope the 2nd half can keep it up 🤞🏻

clearing/cleaning the loft I found an end panel unused from when I had the kitchen fitted, a couple of bits of dressed pine, some dowels, mirror screws and half a can of black spray paint. Bash them together and I come up with this -



Then add the items from boxes stored up in the loft and you have this  :D

 

The Dredd was already there but I had nothing to display some of the guns & badges through the ages.

I would love to do a Rogue one as well but I don't have a spare wall  :D

Back to dusting and hovering now  :(

Books & Comics / Re: Favourite Asterix Book
« on: 25 April, 2020, 08:52:33 AM »
Not having re-read for many years but my all time favourite is “The Twelve Tasks” I know it’s a a book of the film but I read the book way before the film and still preferred the book after watching the film.
The format is totally different to the rest of the books but the few illustrations are still fantastic in fact more so as they are larger with more details.

Now to start the re-read to see if it holds up

Off Topic / Face coverings
« on: 24 April, 2020, 05:33:45 PM »
This isn’t a thread on the usefulness of the pros or cons of face coverings in this crazy time - but it is likely the advice is pointing to the authorities advising their use.

So if we are going to wear face coverings which tooth character (Other than Dredd) would you want?

I’m going for Hershey 🤔

Donald Trump has now suggested injecting disinfectant as a thing that should be looked into.

I mean...  ...that's just...  ...how can...   ...What?

Did this one get posted here yet?

Some people actually follow Trump's medical advice (and, of course, die as a result).

Do they still do the Darwin awards?

Thanks for the comments guys I just wish there was more figures like this (I know there’s a Blackblood out there) as I find the larger models kinder on my eyes. I still have some Dredd minis to see me through these times.
Shaolin your mash up is great maybe you should try a few more and post them on here.

I picked up this from eBay (unpainted) just at the start of lock down so it has kept me busy at nights (those checks were a pain). Overall I'm pleased with the result and now he stands next to his new pal Joe on the book case
