Brink is my star this week, despite superficially being just a chat with an architect. There's such tension and uncertainty in this, it's completely gripping. I love how different 'brinks' are worked in, Bridget literally standing on the edge and thinking about jumping. Fantastic, hats off to Dan and Ian, and to Tharg for taking a punt on a slow burn that has no 'getting the gang tigeether' sequence, no uberbutch antihero with a catchphrase, no crazy vistas or pop cultural anachronisms.

Nice bit in Dredd this week where Jerry repeats almost verbatim Dredd's argument for helping the Crickles, which led to his punching Winslow.  Perhaps the Mark 9s should have tight boots as standard?

Arse! Lost my longer post, so I'll summarise:

Everything in the prog is great right now. Brink is the best and I think the RV Mechanismo units will be here to stay...
To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.
