    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    She was the lead writer and show-runner - even the episodes she didn't actually write she undoubtedly outlined the story and probably did a pass on.

    (I've been waiting patiently for it to be shown on BBC. Not surprised though, what with PWB no longer writing it).

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Another endorsement for Knock Down The House. Laughed and cried. AOC is just sooooo lovely. Best thing to happen to American politics since my whole life.

    Line of Duty (BBC)

    Stopped watching midway through the third episode. Couldn't take it any more. I don't get it. It's shit. Both utterly implausible on a character level and totally humourless. The whole thing seems to just exist to perform the most basic bait and switch on the audience with who is a goodie or a baddie, and because this has to happen about three times an episode there is no time for anything except tedious exchanges of exposition between utterly joyless archetypes who are so boring that they make Michael Owen seem like Salvador Dali. Why the fuck does everyone love this so much?

    Far Cry 2

    I was in my local charity shop last week and saw Far Cry 2 on the 360. Having never played it, but over the years heard how special a game it is, I thought it would be silly not to at the asking price of £2 and paid forthwith. I started playing it today and while I really love the setting, I am getting my ass handed to me in the most spectacular fashion with every gun fight. Partly this is because I have now not played an FPS for about 7 years and my skills have withered to that of a small child. But I'm also sure I'm missing something. I'm sneaking in the grass to such an extent that I barely know what is going on, yet still the shotgun shells rip me apart the moment I so much as sniff an enemy base. Is this just like Dark Souls where repeated death is part of the formula? Will my FPS skills ever return? Can you remember tips for a game that is over a decade old (time, where does thou go to)? If you can please help.
  8. Don't think Phoebe Waller-Bridge is co-writing - just doing a polish - as in adding little quirky bits of dialogue and the like to make the humourless regurgitated Wade Pervis script seem somehow exciting.

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    Think this is going to be a real mixed bag review wise, depending on the focus/predilections of the reviewer. Mechanics wise it's probably a 5/10 game, world building and story wise it's probably a 9/10. Going to be watching with interest.
  10. TLJ had good bits and TLJ had abject fucking horrible bits. Whether you liked it or loathed it, in tone and world building it was not a sequel to the Force Awakens, in the same way that Majora's mask was not a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time. RJ should have been given licence to make his strange blue titty milking scenes in a stand alone spin off film, not the main trilogy, not the story started by some one with different intentions entirely. It was a creative mistake. I hope JJ steadies the ship, and RJ can make his stuff too somewhere else where I don't have to necessarily watch it.
  11. Now that Leia has shown that floating about in space at will is a force power, the Emperor can't have died after being thrown down a big hole. Them's the rules now. Blame RJ. P.S. I hate the fact that Leia floated about in space at will. It was utterly shit.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I loved it. An amazing ending that left me .And then belly laugh when she I like this series more than the first, which brilliant as it was, did feel at time like stand up and sketch material quilted together into a sitcom. This had such a focused storyline, and had such amazing cast of character actors, that it felt like a brilliant piece of ensemble theatre. I really really loved it.
