Disney+ could easily join that club in the time between Marvel TV series.

Although they're being quite canny about the large overlap between Marvel fans and Star Wars fans — there's rarely been more than a very few weeks between either a Marvel or SW series running (see: Moon Knight wrapping up today and Obi-Wan starting three weeks later, for example).

So true for me. I only really get Disney + for the Marvel and Star War series (I like both) and I tend to unsubscribe if there's a long break between. I haven't unsubscribed in a while.

Alien Nation (1986?)

Stands up surprisingly well. It's like District 9 before District 9. Well worth a rewatch if you haven't seen recently or a watch full stop if you've never seen. Dare I say forgotten sci fi classic. Well maybe not on this forum.

I remember enjoying it at the time and the subsequent spin off TV series (but that’s probably of it’s time now)
Maybe try and catch the film sometime soon.

Do you have to watch it on YouTube, or is it available on tv in the UK?

Legally speaking it will be available in the UK on Paramount plus on 22nd June 2022.

Or using a VPN to appear to be in the US territory and watching the US Paramount version, might work. But you'll likely be forking out for the VPN too. (I had a free one on my iPad* but it required watching ads to store up time. Not a big issue for me as they're not long, but it might bug some people. I haven't tried it on Paramount Plus yet as I'm concerned about paying for a subscription only for it not to work. And June isn't far off really. A nuisance it's not on Netflix or Amazon Prime though.

*Which I've now sold. I should see if I can get it or similar for my new Samsung device.

Aside from initial ticket hiccup, which was totally my fault, my journey had been pretty smooth too, so far.

Anyone wishing to place me at event I'll probably be wearing black clothes* and a black trilby, unless it's rather hot, in which case I'll be wearing a dodgy balding hair-do-, which is part of the reason for the hat. (But I try not to get too precious about it.) Between beer slurps, I'll likely be wearing a face mask to complete the gangster look. Or keep people, and myself, safe from COVID. One of the two. Or both. (Hardly anyone wears them anymore judging by my train journey. And now someone is sitting next to me. Go away! )

I actually had a costume last time which didn't quite work because the shoulder armour wouldn't curve around my shoulders properly and looked like it was floating. I ended up leaving it off and just looked like a regular bloke in a black outfit. I hoped to fix it this year and even had a couple of extra things to augment the look but I realised last minute I'd lost  the armour!**

*Which doesn't really set me apart from a lot of comic nerds.

**Now I come across like a kinky snecker!
