Is there any reason why Devlin Waugh hasn't been included in this yet? He's been in 107 issues apparently so should be enough for a book of his own?

I have to verify my age to watch that ... a quick google search tells me it's something to do with Thomas the Tank Engine?

I cannot recommend Station Eleven highly enough.

Aha! I get it now it's the complete lack of thought and effort. I also gave socks as a gift to a male friend this Xmas but they had dinosaurs on them and they went with a copy of Battle: Invasion 1984.

Sounds like you have some nice friends though. Hope you had a nice Xmas too  :)


It's not so much that I spent more, its just that in my opinion socks are the stereotypical lazy gift.  She might not have had much money but as I say I would rather have had nothing with a nice card, it's hard to explain.

This was maybe my best present :



Also the collected Fleabag scripts, a nice candle and a Viking style necklace.

@ Jade, I also spent more on gifts than I received. When I start to feel bitter I remind myself I bought those nice gifts because that's who I am.

I didn't think it was the greatest adaptation book lovers could have asked for but I think it's a good intro to the world and I'm looking forward to seeing where this can go.

Caught Lamb over the Xmas break and if you are into your dark Scandi (well Icelandic) cinema this one is going to be right up your street. 10/10 from me - absolutely loved it.

Also watched Titane, a new French movie which is equally bizarre but not as gripping. I'm still trying to figure out what it's about - humans relationship with technology or the role of women in society; as either sexual objects or desexualised mother .

Can anyone confirm when the first run officially ends?

Is it at 110?

I quite liked it as an exploration of non-toxic masculinity.
