Since the Last Show

Two months since last show, but the last time I did the show I was in temporary accommodatio. I've been busy moving, working, and settling into a flat in Redhill, Surrey, with a perilously nearby chip shop.

Nothing of any real personal significance has happened, just the old same ol' same ol'. If you are really that bored you can follow me on via the blog. If I win a million pounds, you'll be the first to hear about it... via a satellite phone from my luxury yacht in the Mediterranean.

And on with the show.

The Wolverine

The are almost a zillion clips of this already, so you'll probably not need to see the movie once it comes out.

The Wolverine, out this year, is based on a Chris Claremont/Frank Miller okay graphic novel (that used to be in my collection), but are they really going to show Wolverine as a incompetent alcoholic?

Roll trailer.

Big Bang Theory

Sharper, nastier, and very funny towards the end of season 6.

Defiance (2013)

Sci-Fi TV show based on game.

Doctor Who: The Bells of St. John, Doctor Who: The Rings of Akhaten

Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2, Episodes 1 and 2, The Bells of St. John and The Rings of Akhaten.


Big Data, Winton Capital, LA Cops.

The Walking Dead

Season 3 was okay; action rather than the soap of the last season, but when are we going back to real survival horror and science fiction?

SyFy's Blake's 7 Reboot?

No Straight Answer despite my annoying them a couple of times.

Iain Banks is Terminally Ill

Sad news. We wish him well.

Beano, Commando

Still around and on the shelves in WHSmiths.

Really surprised about Commando, but at least it's one way to remind everyone that there where two very large wars at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Dan Dare

Many incarnations; Eagle, 2000 AD, Virgin.

Amazon Lockers

But not easy to get anything delivered there.

How British is that?

Cheap Monitor from PCWorld and Powered USB Hub from eBuyer

I bought a cheap monitor in PCWorld and a powered USB hub from eBuyer.

Irritating lack of anything in high street shops. Everything is online now, which seems to mean you have to wait much longer to get your stuff.

PCWorld's Returns Policy

Oh, and on the subject of PCWorld, look at how draconian their return policy is the next time you buy something from them!

Fighting Fantasy

Time permitting, I'd like to get into Steve Jackson's and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy books again.

I had Deathtrap Dungeon as a kid, and they all seem available secondhand from Amazon.
