@Dandontdare Story and characters are the reason to watch,not the whatever anomaly of the week they are investigating. At least for me.

But when you already know the stories and characters backwards,  a weird disease or transporter accident is much more fun than endless episodes showing Worf bonding with his son, Bajoran religious politics or the Misery of the O'Briens.

Just watched S:3 of What We Do in the Shadows - still fun in parts, but a definite dip in quality. The best jokes are recycled from previous series. The last two episodes were good though as we see the "end" for one of the characters....

a copy of DC's Steel #1 from 1994 without it's cover that I found on the street outside my flat. Not a good comic, but I'm dying to know where it came from - which of my neighbours is likely to have vintage DC comics? I want to meet them!

Also, Dastardley & Muttley by Garth Ennis & Mauricet. Very odd little book - a rogue drone full of Unstabilium (sic) blows up a reactor in Unliklistan (sic again) and starts gradually turning people into cartoons

Tharg should sue him for IP theft. A billion should do it.

And they say it's from the 1995 Judge Dredd film, when it's clearly from Dredd 2012

Interesting side-note about the Mark Millar birthday Dredd not appearing in the Casefiles between volumes 18 & 19. I wasn't aware of that - anyone know if it was due to formatting to get the right length for each book, simple mistake or something more deliberate?

I strongly suspect that what we have here is a clever time-twisty Maxine Alderton story about angels in a village, with proper human characters and dialogue, that Chibnall has hammered into his Division plot. The former sections in the village were great, the rest ... not so much.

Not tried them yet - planning to drink one and keep one (until the next time it's midnight on Friday and I want just one more beer..).

The can definitely would not be recycled - was thinking of filling it with sand or plaster and keeping it on my shelf, but I didn't know the labels were peelable.

Hi Eamonn. Sorry I never managed to find you again after we passed crossing the road (though to be honest, spent most of the rest of that day in the 'spoons!)

After a decent second episode, Chibnall has gone back to throwing a dozen different plots at the screen at a breakneck pace to mask how poor it is. A disjointed and confusing episode

I've been dipping in and out of DS9 and TNG lately. Find I'm skipping most of the major character episodes (too slow and schmaltzy) and focussing on the weirder one-offs - 'something bizarre goes wrong and nearly kills everybody' type of stories.
You are literally doing it completely wrong. 🤣

How so?

New season of Bigmouth on the Flix, laugh my arse off but if this show doesn’t make you uncomfortable there’s something wrong with you.

CU Radbacker

I liked the bit right at the end of S:1 where the hormone monsters are discussing making it into a TV show and someone says nobody would make a show about children and sex, so Maury says "I mean, maybe if it's animated, we could get away with it"

My best purchase of the weekend:



TB was definitely back on full, if perhaps a little bit muted, lot of familiar faces missing and as mentioned, zero Rebellion presence (apart from the beer of course). Still great to catch up with Jim, Hawkmumbler, Crazyfoxmachine & the Boyles. Had a brief chat with Guy and said hello to Eamonn as we passed crossing the street in opposite directions, but I never found him again. Won some lovely Fiends of the Eastern Front pages in the Doodles for Dave raffle (there were sooooo many sketches)

Chibnall doesn’t appear remotely interested in giving his female characters any actual character at all.

It's not just his women, nobody sounds real. Davies and Moffat wrote many memorable supporting characters with distinct personalities and voices for their 45 minutes' existence. Chibnall's characters just don't behave or sound like real people. That scouse family really got on my tits, and Dan seems to be carved from the same block of wood as Ryan. Bradley Walsh may have been another chirpy regional-sterotype comic sidekick, but at least he could act.

Seems weird that people seem to be slagging off just about everyone who's run the show they've been following for 16 years.
