2000AD Prog 287: Imprisoned one hundred miles above the Earth… with no hope of escape!

One of those stories that had just finished when I began reading 2000AD.

2000AD Prog 293: “Starbase one under attack!” Win the video game that talks to you!

Computer games everywhere!  Even in Rogue Trooper!

Couple more songs from 'Play it again, Sam!' for your playlist...

The telegram delivery robot starts this number...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en8siIQH2Ds

And the singing telegram itself seems to be this (even though prog 293 came out nearly three years before that movie...)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6obUJYlIxk

The wages of sin are death, but the hours are good and the perks are fantastic.

2000AD Prog 295: “Die, Dredd!” Look out – there’s a “jimp” about! Zarjaz news for video gamers – inside!

A game-changer for the nascent video games industry (primarily US) gets a few lines - little did they know!

p.s. still need to fiddle about with the playlists to add Lobo's suggestions - now how difficult are youtube and spotify going to make that for me?

Prediction - before viewing that video I'm going to assume it's Jane Wiedlin (famous for her hit single Rush Hour and being Joan of Arc in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure) playing the singing telegram in Clue, before being shot dead.

Yup!  Surprisingly managed to find the Morecambe and Wise song on spotify but not the Jane Wiedlin song.

2000AD Prog 296: “Merry christmas!”

After thinking the Lim-ees were not affected by the mentality that had afflicted Frank Sector only to be rudely awakened, Rogue is put in contact with an elite core of Lim-ees who he initially thinks were not - you can guess the rest.
