    Yeah, that series was still very popular when I lived overseas and there was still a lot of merchandise around that used it. I still have what is like a Choose Your Own Adventure (but in the British...

    Yeah, Robin Hood was a BBC series if I'm remembering right (I first watched it on Netflix which was how I used to watch all BBC shows at the time). If I'm remembering right, it also had a pretty...

    I'm watching Season 2 of it right now. It's tough to watch but in a good way. I do have to switch to a happier, lighter show after a couple of episodes (Adventure Time is perfect for this).

    I think Cain is playing through an injury. Either that or his age-related decline happened all at once.

    They should be in a different city each month, like a barnstorm tour! P. Rico can be the April city!

    Boaty McBoatface (the small submarine on the boat, they named the boat RRS Sir David Attenborough) made a pretty significant climate change discovery. Of course the discovery is that we're more...

    Another TV season polished off. I finished watching Castle Rock and I thought I'd love it since I've enjoyed Stephen King's work and world building. Unfortunately, it's only average. They took an...

    Well I guess the other teams wanted them to send more money? But yeah, I think swampdragon is spot-on with the reasoning for this deal.

    It sounds like they could have but opted for more salary relief - the rumor is that the Rays and Astros offered more talent.

    Oh I agree, it's purely a quirk of mine. It's just a switch in my brain that doesn't work the same as most people, apparently. Clearly people loved the way the series was done, I think I read it's...

    I watched all three seasons of Humans in the last couple of weeks and I have to say, it does what Westworld is trying to do a whole lot better. Obviously the budget is a tiny fraction of that show...

    Okay, that helps me understand the reactions here a lot, actually. Whenever I watch a show about a historical event that I actually have studied or know something about, even if it's just a bit, I...

    Gordon Lightfoot - "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" (Canadians, don't kill me)
    John Denver - "Take Me Home, Country Roads"

    Fallout 76 is free this week. They added a separate Battle Royale mode, which is fine I guess? I don't really enjoy shooting other players but it seems to have been very positively received. The game...

    Yes, I'm aware where it comes from. It also had almost no scientific basis which is why I said it is likely apocryphal (cue Morbo saying "Radiation does not work that way!"). I have no doubt the...

    Of course it did, again that's historical fact. I'm talking about the smaller things. There are many interactions with Soviet leadership through the miniseries.

    Definitely the weakest of the trilogy and after watching some of the director commentary on the disc, it's kind of clear why. The first cut was 3h20m and he kept mentioning that he had to...
