I hope this isn't the deciding vote, I couldn't take the pressure! Sorry for the no-show; I need to get back in the writing habit...

1st: Eamonn
2nd: Shark
3rd: NapalmKev

Eamonn's last line has gone missing: "You came back, how simply delicioussss."

I have half an idea... When's the deadline?

"The Judge Child will return in Prog 1077, eighteen years after Judge Feyy's prediction, just as foretold!"
"Oh, what the fuck."
"Ah, y'know, whatever, that's a problem for when we're covering 1998, buddy. I'm not worried about that too much."
"That's so far away."
"You'd think so, but I got plans."


WHAT. What does this mean? You're not - gasp! - skipping ahead, are you?

Congrats on the anniversary - Space Spinner continues to be one of the podcasting highlights of my week, and ReAction is off to a great start too.

So, so sad to see him go. But man, what a legacy to leave behind.

Awesome work, guys! That was loads of fun and the shout-out really made my day. (It's pronounced ekidna, but don't sweat it - me and Ee-mon are pretty forgiving guys ;) )

Re-Action sounds great; I've read some  Battle but nothing from Action so it will be completely new to me.

For Conrad and anyone else baffled by Fox's reference at 25:20...

Can't say I'm as affected by Helltrekkers as you guys - the cast are dispatched so rapidly I haven't had a chance to grow attached to any of them. That said, if Crustacia gets boiled alive I'll be super sad about it. And I'm looking forward to Quint inevitably going out like Robert Shaw.

Case for Treatment and the stories before it (Question of Judgement and Error of Judgement) are really important Dredd stories, even though they're mostly just talking instead of action. The idea that Dredd would ever question his judgement, and his place in the world, is really interesting. We'll talk about it a lot on the show, but those thrills really shook me!

Reading about [various stories from progs 650-700, you know the ones I'm talking about] is what got me interested in Dredd and 2000 AD back in 2013 (holy crap I just realised I've been here five years) and those stories from progs 387-389 are the start of a lot of those plot threads, so I'm really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

Like WhizzBang I'm reading along with the podcasts, and (aside from Dredd, Nemesis and Halo Jones) it's all new to me, so I can't really offer any nominations. That said, I'll be astonished if anything tops McMahon's work on Sky Chariots.

I'd also like to nominate Rogue Trooper (progs 359-361) for a Special Award for Most Memorable Sound Effects:

WHEEEEN, WHUMPAA, HOPPA HOPPA HOPPA, HOPPA HOPPA, HOPPA HOPPA HOPPA HOP HOPPA
HOPPAHOPPAHOPPA, HOPPAHOPPAHOPPA, BOMPAA, WHOMMMPA, PTIING
BLAM, HOPPA HOPPA HOPPAPPA, BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA, BOOMFA

I've been praying for Mean Arena to end, but now that it's over I find myself wishing they'd given it a few more episodes to wrap up properly (then again, a whole match set inside that video game stadium would probably be unbearable). At least it wasn't as rushed as Inferno's last episode or Return of the Mean Team, which I described in another thread as "a dumb story with a fuck-you ending".

« on: 02 January, 2018, 10:20:01 pm »
1st: 383, Riot Act by Adam Brown. Action-packed and three-dimensional.
2nd: 386, Last Breath by Nick Percival. Creepy stuff.
3rd: 389, Darklands by Nick Percival. Genuinely unpleasant (in a good way!)

1st: 2023, Punch It by Cliff Robinson. Like Prog 1965’s Zero Tolerance, an inventive and striking use of the logo.

2nd: 2027, Lawman of Steel by Matt Ferguson. Eye-catching, dynamic design and atmospheric colours.

3rd: 2019, Forty Years by Greg Staples. Yet another iconic Dredd!

I should mention that we've already done '81, and the bombs are about flying as we begin '82!

I was so distressed by your announcement I was temporarily unable to tell years apart. Now in a state of maximum stokedness!

Note: We had planned to start new episodes, but have run into some technical difficulties, explained at the start of the show.

Oh no! I hope you can recover the files, I don't think I can take any more exciting news for all listeners. I've been listening since this thread started (thanks Steve) and I'm super excited for your 1981 coverage because that's where my back-prog collection starts, so I'll be reading along with you!
