Have they tried turning them off and on again?


I imagine the on/off button is pretty hard to reach right now...

Halo. I nearly didn't bother with this because I don't do computer games (well, maybe Mahjongg and Patience from time to time) but I'm glad I gave it a go. The story and characters were all okay, not brilliant but engaging enough to while away the rainsoaked hours of a weekend off, and the effects were top notch. Not bad at all.

Episode 2, Children of the Comet, and this is the Star Trek I've been waiting for. Discovery and Picard certainly have their moments but this feels like (at long last) the real deal.

Yep, after the first episode of SNW I'm optimistic that a good scratching will ensue.

Heard so much dissing of this I avoided it, worth a watch?

Well, I'm enjoying it somewhat but it's not something I'd recommend strongly.

Just watched Episode One and it wasn't bad at all. A couple of clanky moments aside, and a clanger (what happened to the rest of the USS Archer's crew? Maybe they said but I missed it), I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Best of all, this iteration seems to be going back to the episode-of-the-week format - which I was wingeing about on the Picard thread. Optimism levels set to mildly cautious, interest buffers nominal, enjoyment factor six - punch it!

Halfway through season 2 of Raised by Wolves and I'm beginning to wonder if it's all part of the Alien universe...

I think we've already had Block Wars in the way you imagine, for example the struggle against Hitler Block.

To my mind, the closest thing to "Blocks" would be the ancient Greek city states fighting amongst themselves as in the Peloponnesian War between Athens (Block) and Sparta (Block).

I thought it was okay, but no more than that. The Borg's giant space vagina ship made me chuckle, which I'm fairly sure wasn't the intent. I really am missing the Episode of the Week format and look forward to the return of The Orville to scratch that particular itch.

Thanks for all your hard work, broodblik. Voting's not something I'm usually interested in but these sideshow votes have been pretty cool. Kudos.

Wow, that's a marathon!

I've just binged Love, Death and Robots and really enjoyed it overall. The worst part was that my mind kept wandering to imagine a 2000AD series with a similar format. Say thirteen ~20 minute episodes, five of them Dredd (broken up to maybe episodes 1, 2, 7, 12 and 13, telling either one big story or five self-contained ones), then maybe three episodes of Rogue Trooper or Strontium Dog, the last five episodes could be a two part M.A.C.H. 1 or Visible Man and a couple of Future Shocks. Maybe all with a short post-credits Word from Tharg sequence. And of course the seasons would be called Progs and the episodes would be called Thrills. Anyhoo, Love, Death and Robots is cool and I liked it a lot.

Moon Knight. I enjoyed the Hell of of this.

House of Cards (US). Can't really be compared to the UK original, except in superficial ways, but this is nevertheless a good series in it's own right. I know it stars the A$$h0le Formerly Known as Kevin Spacey (who, a$$h0le or not, puts in a good turn) but it also stars Robin Wright, who is awesome, and many other top-notch people. An enjoyable political thriller, political correctness notwithstanding.

Last night I learned that if one glues three people together and sticks them to a dog, one can use the resulting agglomeration as a radio for talking to God. However, God doesn't like having to get out of the bath to answer the 'phone.

She should perhaps contact the Metropolitan Police and ask for the Art and Antiques Unit.
