  1. The interviews with the killers in prison remain the standout scenes in every episode they feature in for me (I watched the first 3.5 yesterday, would have watched even more if I didn't need sleep). Can see me finishing the whole thing this weekend, then having to wait another 2 years before getting any more. I wish I had more self restraint. This is outstanding stuff. Edit - . Not sure if it plays automatically at the start of S2E1 but there's a 3 minute recap of S1 if you look in the episodes and more menu.
  2. I eventually got round to watching Shimmer Lake last night after having it sitting on my 'to watch' list for ever. Enjoyed it a lot, and it's definitely one that will need a second watch to see how it all links together, as the story plays out backwards across a few days in the same week (a little bit like Memento). It's quite funny in a gentle way, too.
  3. So true, I posted the quote below in the movie watchers thread after I'd started to watch The Virtues. It's still pops into my mind 2 months after seeing it for the first time and I'm trying to pursuade my wife to watch it so I can see it again.
  4. I'm sure you'll need to pay for them on top of getting the game but the Porsche and NASCAR expansions for Forza 6 are both excellent.
  5. I saw a clip for the 2nd series when Bob was on Top Gear a few weeks ago. In the clip Paul & Bob were playing golf, and watching it, I thought they had gone for a different pastime for the new series (it was hilarious, they were both hopeless and were falling over laughing at each others attempts at teeing off). Must have just been a diversion from the fishing in one episode though, but damn, I would be well up for watching a full series of them playing golf, instead of fishing. Still more than happy for them to continue with the fishing and cooking and arseing about though. First series was slow TV at its finest.
  6. I don't know if the offer is still on as I signed up last week and have been away for the last few days but you could sign up to one of the Amazon additional subscription channels for half price for 3 months, £2.50 a month instead of £5. The pick of them seems to be Starzplay which includes stuff like the excellent Counterpart, Steven Kings Mr. Mercedes and Castlerock plus quite a few other series and movies which are quite appealing. Just need to cancel auto renew before the 3 months is up. Apologies all round if the offer is no longer up, meant to post this last week but stupidly forgot before I went away.
  7. Holy shit, episode 9 This is the best TV since I don't know what.
  8. Not a ruin, but it certainly looked abandoned, I'd love to spend a week camping on the island of The Witness. It's gorgeous.
  9. Yes, add me to The Guilty fan club, thoroughly enjoyed that. Great little thriller.
  10. I've read all of David Sedaris' various collections and they are without doubt some of the funniest things I've ever read. He really is a fantastic man.
  11. Finished episode 2 last night and this has been stunning so far (but what place to end an episode) - This has atmosphere in spades and is just hanging on the right side of mind-bendingly out there (for me anyway). The pace is also satisfyingly glacial and some of the cinematography is beautiful, like the very slow scenes panning back and forth around various indoor locations like the police station and nightclub in Mexico. Can't wait to get on with seeing where it goes next.
  12. Starts again this Wednesday with a double bill on Sky (and maybe the full season on NowTv?) It's quite possibly the very best thing I've seen on Nowtv. Very much looking forward to its return. .
  13. Due to the rewards I've accumulated, I've managed to get this for a little over £3. Bought two x £5.00 Microsoft store vouchers on the rewards section (they're currently 20% off) plus the gamepass discount brings it down to 13 pounds something. Quite happy with that. And it's looking to be a great expansion, not far into it yet but what I have played has been very impressive. The introductory race is quite spectacular and I'm looking forward to getting stuck right into it this evening. I'd kind of drifted away from FH4 over the last 6-12 months and went back to mostly playing Forza 7 for my car based entertainment (I've always preferred the more disciplined version of the Forzas) but this looks like it's going to be glorious fun. Is the previous island based expansion any good?
  14. That's a great doc @Nespresso, thanks for posting. I downloaded this via gamepass the other night, along with Metro Exodus and Hollow Night. Tried them all, but Astroneer is the one that's holding my attention. I've gotten into it in a way that I thought No Man's Sky would grab me, but didn't. This one has though and I don't know why, but I am absolutely loving it. Haven't played it tonight unfortunately but that's because I've been watching reviews on YouTube all night. Desperately wanted to play but it was always a case of 'I will after this one', but look at the time now, far too late to start tonight. I finish work at 1.30 on a Friday though, so I'll put that right in around 12 hours. Great game.
  15. Outer Wilds is really, really great.
