I find him... a bit much. Close friendship is great but it gets nauseating with him. Also it doesn't feel like he's had a lot of development, unlike Jake who is still kooky but no longer unbearably so.

Has anyone else watched High Score on Netflix? I finished it last night. It features a few things I knew about (such as the story of ET, and Miyamoto telling the StarFox devs "this space shooter would be more fun with woodland creatures in it") but a lot that I didn't, and features a good bit of representation from women, people of colour, and LGBT+ communities. I actually first heard about it from my sister excitedly texting about how Roberta Williams came on screen and she recognised her before they'd introduced her - we played a LOT of King's Quest in our house as kids.

Yeah I watched them - the Doom one was particularly good seeing how Doom had links to Mario 3. The StreetFighter and Sonic episodes were cool, but also mildly depressing. Might just be me, but they felt more about the people than about the games, which I guess is interesting but I'd rather they dived more into what made the game great, rather than who.

I've binged all five series of Line of Duty, an excellent bent cop drama on IPlayer and Netflix. Highly recommended.

Yeah, I'd agree with that - I wonder if it's because talking about the games more would make it more of a niche thing, rather than relatable to a wider audience?

In the Sega one I just kept thinking "it's so funny they went from being the underdog to a huge competitor in the 90s, and then it all just changed so rapidly at the turn of the century".

Yeah, what's funny is that SEGA was really only ahead for a couple of years, if that. 1992-1994 - didn't the SNES end up outselling the Mega Drive? Saturn flopped and Dreamcast did well for the 18 months it was around, but was too little too late. From "toppling" Nintendo, to effectively bankrupt in the space of 6 years. Now that's a series that needs to be made - an in depth look at the fall from grace that saw SEGA leave the hardware industry.

The SNES outsold the Mega Drive by about 20m in the end, but the MD did have better success in Europe & RotW but guess back then those were small markets unlike now.

SEGA has a interesting history and as a big fan I do find it funny lot blame Sony for the downfall with the PS2 yet so much went wrong before that.

Thinking of 'spooky' Hallowe'en appropriate watches, Dr. Terrible's House of Horrible is on AmPrime and it's great. A six-episode anthology show ripping the pish out of classic horror tropes, with Steve Coogan playing the heroes. Laugh? I nearly died.

What We Do In The Shadows (BBC iPlayer) is in a similar horror-comedy vein (pun not intended), but you really should have watched that already by now.

Watched all of The Queen's Gambit yesterday on Netflix and it's rather good that I wouldn't be surprised to win some awards.

The Boys. First show I've watched in a while. There were some moments that I found a bit too edgy but overall I really enjoyed it. I heard the second series is even better so I'm looking forward to it.

Apparently the edge is blunted compared to the absolutely ridiculous comicbook. It's one I'm interested in but to be honest I need less cynicism in my life right now, not more.

We don't really know what to watch on Netflix at the moment, so we've been going through Spongebob Squarepants Laughing

Aside from that we watched one of those nutty shows from a Z-list channel that somehow wound up on the flix, can't remember the name but essentially: DID ALIENS DO IT!?

Found it funny the amount of times the talking heads went, "but why is this pattern only properly visible from the sky!? Native Americans didn't have planes so it must be aliens! As if, you know, the simpler answer isn't just that civilisations across the globe have made tributes to the sun, moon and stars for thousands of years!

This is my reason for not watching The Boys.

Anyone watched the new Pegg/Frost caper Truth Seekers? Three episodes in and it seems like harmless fun so far.

I've watched both seasons of The Boys in the last few months and while there are bouts of cynicism in there I don't think I could have watched it at a better time than now. Sure, it holds up a big fuck off mirror to the world that you might not want to look at but I really enjoyed seeing those characters band together and push through all of that.

It was just so refreshing to have a show that isn't scared to show the flaws of the main characters or sugar coat anything. Loved it.

This is the first thing I've heard which makes me interested in checking The Boys out.

I basically don't watch anything apart from Star Trek, Digimon and stuff for podcasts.

Same it's Discovery and Mando at the moment, with the odd thing that lands on Netflix or Plus

I've got a little bit of catching up to do with Warrior season 2, hopefully that picks up the pace a wee bit because the first episode just felt like a main character recap.

The Boys is a pretty interesting one from the first season, aside from most of the characters they've diverged pretty heavily from the original, so I wouldn't let any preconceptions about 1 colour the other at all.
I need to get around to Season 2, but I'm really not into TV at the moment - it's only Taskmaster & Richard Osman's House of Games that get any TV time in at the moment.

Very late in the day, but we finally finished Season 3 of Castlevania this week.
