  1. I thought it was great. Season 2 is pretty hard going, but it somehow gets better retrospectively as the seasons go on. The first episode really was something else though, one of the strongest pilots I've ever seen.
  2. Excuse the blatant self-promotion, but I was rather pleased with myself to have four pages of images featured in the latest Digital SLR Photography Magazine. I knew it was coming, they approached me in November, but it's still exciting! First time I've had anything featured in a magazine
  3. Jonny's son is definitely the worst thing about the show, he's been awful since the start. Sam isn't much better. Other than that I think the kids are alright, I rather enjoy Hawk's attempts at being badass and a complete numpty at the same time. Finished season 3 last night, in general it's a drop in quality but it was still hugely silly and entertaining. Bring on season 4.
  4. I finally started it this week after picking it up on the estore sale. So far so good, it's perfect gaming for my limited free time. I'm about 70 moons in so far and have enjoyed all the kingdoms I've visited, it's all very easy though other than a few 'hat' rooms that I found quite tricky. When I look at the list of all the moons it's scary how many I haven't got yet in the various kingdoms despite doing my best to collect them. I guess it's nice to read this thread and realise that they aren't all available straight away. I certainly won't be looking to collect every
  5. So my girlfriend and I tried Exit: The Abandoned Cabin and it suitably kicked our arses. We had a bit of a nightmare with the kids (we played new years eve), couldn't get them to bed and then they kept on waking up. So didn't start until gone 10pm, having been woken up at 5am, and had multiple interruptions on the way, including having to move the whole game upstairs so we could be near to them. Bless. Anyway that's my excuses, we took 2 hours 30. We actually solved the concept of most of the puzzles quite easily but ended up over thinking the implementation, which le
  6. Love it, nice treatment creates a great atmosphere.
  7. Ok so quick sales pitch on the greatest TV show ever. The Shield is the greatest TV show ever. The lead character is a bit annoying for the first couple of episodes but stick with it for a brilliant 7 season story arch with probably the most intense and brilliant performances I've ever seen in a TV show (Walton Goggins, also from Justified mentioned in this thread, is the standout). Some rate The Wire, Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones higher, but for me The Shield wins hands down. It's outstanding. Please watch.

    I keep bouncing off of BotW, I want to love it but I just can't get stuck in and every session feels fairly aimless. These days I bearly get any gaming time and dipping in and out of a game that size is not easy. In other news I bought Mario Odyssey in the sale today.
  9. Cobra Kai season 3 is up now. Not seen it yet!
  10. The Killing Fields 5/5 Watched on Amazon Prime. I've never seen this before and it blew me away. The chaos, drama and tragedy is so well captured. It's a very difficult watch and at times confusing, with parts of the story seemingly skipped and large portions of the film where no dialogue is understood unless you speak the language. It's worth noting the film had no subtitles. I'm not sure if this is intentionally part of the film or an error with Amazon on my viewing, but I felt like it worked perfectly for the first half as it brought us closer to
  11. I thought this was outstanding, definitely one of their best for me. The soundtrack, visuals and characters were all brilliant and it felt like a real showcase of Pixar's talent. (Though the last film we watched was Barnyard on Netflix, so my current standard of animated films was particularly low!) Look forward to a rewatch. Only negative from a family point of view was that the kids struggled at times. The concept and visuals are quite complex at times and this especially confused the hell out of our five year old. She loved the middle portion of the fil

    So Just Dance has entered the house thanks to Christmas, 2021 edition. Kids absolutely love so I looked into the Just Dance Unlimited subscription. Cost is fine but apparently if I do subscribe on the consoles main account it won't register on the kids profile! Is this right? No way I'll be subscribing twice so ubi lose out on money due to silly implementation? Also frustrating that the four of us can't play at the same time despite it working with mobile phones as the controller. Turns out it either works with the joy cons or mobile, not a mixture of the two! Again, s
  13. Was that the last one of the series? I thought that was a bad episode. The direction created no sense of drama or tension, the shootout was just awful and important character moments lacked any earned emotion. Whole episode was a bizarre drop in quality over the rest of the series.
  14. I've got pretty much everybody in my family Exit: The Abandoned Cabin for Christmas, with the aim of us all posting our scores\ times to Whatsapp when done. We all did a real one together on my brothers 40th a few years ago and vowed to do it for my 40th....which was last week, and there was no hope of that happening thanks to Covid. I've looked into Unlock as well as a series, which has the benefit of being reusable unlike Exit, but the reviews suggest it is a bit more hit and miss with quality. If we enjoy Exit I might pick up a set though. On this exploration of hom
  15. I'm also loving this series, so much more engaging than the previous one (which I also enjoyed to be fair). My girlfriend, who hasn't read the books, is also finding it a lot easier to follow. As a random aside, I know the person who made the metallic angel that sits outside of the tower. He's pretty pleased how prominent it has been in the series.
