    Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood predators

    Obviously not, no. I can understand objections to his dating and impregnating a fifteen year old, but as has been said he didn’t break the law. As to the film Leon, I never got the sense that it was some kind of pedo manifesto. Mathilda’s mother was a prostitute, so she’s grown up around that, and probably thinks that’s how best to show gratitude/keep Leon from abandoning her as he’s all she’s got now. Leon never encourages her advances, but he’s too socially awkward to talk to her about it. There’s no doubt they both feel affection for each other, and maybe even love at the end, but for Leon it was more of a father/daughter thing, despite Mathilda’s efforts. If all anyone gets from watching that film is man+girl+sexualised overtones=pedo then there’s a pretty good chance they’re being disingenuous.

    H1Z1 - console version - Open Beta starts 22nd May

    Alas, it no longer resembles the H1Z1 I was interested in. Maybe they should take the ‘Z’ out.

    State of Decay 2

    Problem is the bugs were never entirely fixed for State of Decay, it was still in a pretty wobbly state when they released the Year One edition for Xbox One almost two years after the original. Starting to think Undead Labs may be one of those development houses that good ideas crawl halfway out of, but as you say there’s no excuse for it when you have MS signing off on such an obviously unfinished product.
  4. Me neither. In fact I’m amazed any male viewer managed to pick that up over being distracted by her magnificent arse.
  5. That was pretty funny, and what preceded it was an oddly clunky bit of dialogue for this series.

    iZombie (Netflix) - Season 3

    I gave up on it after the Larping episode. The writers have swerved back and forth, across seasons, between how much a brain will effect her, from noticeable changes to ‘I AM PERSON X!’ and the latter becomes intolerable pretty quickly (not even a real Larper spends their entire day role-playing ffs.) I think the bigger issue, though, is that I’m not rooting for anyone.

    State of Decay 2

    Damn, those reviews are disappointing. Surprisingly to hear about the number of bugs given how long Undead Labs have had to smooth it all out. I loved SOD so much on 360 that I forgave its shonkiness as a byproduct of the 360 being an old and limited system by that time, but seems a more powerful console didn’t help UL either! MS must’ve been aware of how buggy this was but just wanted it out the door, so reduced the price as way of an olive branch to gamers.
  8. Sadly, this looks as tone deaf as Ridley Scott’s return to the Aliens universe. The thought of Shane Black watching something like AVP2 and going ‘hmm!’ rather than ‘dear lord!’ is genuinely saddening after what he achieved with Predator.
  9. It does feel like they’re treading water until the inevitable ‘invasion’ plot line kicks in in a season or two. Offred isn’t going to get out of Gilead any time soon because the writers know her shuffling around Little America would make for shit tv, but on the other hand going back to the Major and his harpie wife is ground already well covered. Every single time writers claim to have five seasons of a show, or a trilogy of films, planned out after an initial success, what inevitably follows always has me saying ‘but did you? Did you really?’ Plus I’m certain one of the reasons Offred was acting like an idiot in the first three episodes was a technique the writers used to lazily try and generate tension:

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Surprised by this announcement, but I did enjoy Rage and felt the concept wasn't done justice - hopefully something they can remedy this time around. Apparently the original's ending was so abrupt as ID were told to get it out the door despite not being finished. The weird lack of an end of game boss would seem to support this!
  11. Can’t say I’m too surprised as SyFy are notorious for canning shows before they’ve had their full run.

    Marvel's Luke Cage - Netflix

    Hopefully they learnt their lesson with the first season, and not only have a compelling antagonist but refrain from replacing them halfway through for ‘someone or other.’ I do like the idea that Cage may have to learn to fight properly, as opposed to just throwing haymakers and relying on his super strength - that he didn’t see that coming in a world of ‘enhanced individuals’ marks him as a bit of a dim bulb.

    Fear the Walking Dead Thread

    Not a bad episode, but the Vultures bother me more and more with every appearance. It’s another issue of the writers doing something because ‘it looks cool,’ rather than thinking it through. Case in point:
  14. I know some people bemoaned the sheer number of twists and turns in S1, but compared to that this season feels like a straight line. So far surprised that they commissioned a third on the strength of it, but will see if the next couple of episodes can turn things around.
  15. You wouldn't want to have any dream crew without Data; the number of times he single handedly stopped the Enterprise from going boom is significant.
