  1. Troll 2 is my favourite bad/good film as it’s genuinely entertaining from beginning to end, whereas something like Birdemic is on a technical level barely watchable. Terrible sound, no ADR so you can barely hear what people are saying (no subtitles on DVD either) along with terrible acting, directing and camera work.

     

    I love watching Neil Breen’s work too. Fascinating to watch while trying to understand what that man was thinking while he was writing, editing and directing those amazing piles of trash.

  2. I had to watch the finale a second time as…..…

    Spoiler

    ….I kept waiting for the final scam to be laid bare and then it just ended!

    Watching a second time, knowing that he wasn’t trying to scam out of it, more that he was looking for redemption, it’s a fantastic ending.

     

    One of the best TV shows ever made, that’s for sure.

    The rituals are completely bugged for me now, can’t do any of them without the game breaking after the ritual has ended.

    Just fixed this, I think.

     

    Went back to the Xbox dash and manually stopped the game from running and did a re-boot (just of the game).

    Seems to have fixed it so far.

  4. Is there a bug with farming?

    I have a bunch of crops on the go and have built all of the farming bits that cult members can use, in the place where they need to be, right by the farm.

    At no point will it let me give them farming jobs, it just says “no tasks available”, despite them clearly showing they need to be watered or fertilised.

  5. The thing is, go back and watch Breaking Bad. Some of the Walt flashback scenes are unintentionally hilarious as they try to make him look about 16 years younger (while Walt Jr is still waiting to be born) and it looks terrible! At least they didn’t digitally de-age them!

  6. The point of the guy in the restaurant…..…..…

     

    Spoiler

    …..is the reminder to Gus that he can never have a normal life. The person he cared about the most was killed, so he has to realise he can’t have a normal romantic relationship.

     

  7. I’ve defeated the first boss, not sure how to make it through the second area.

    Do you need a character with a double jump to make it to the top?

    I’m specifically on about the very beginning of the second section - there’s a building to ascend with lots of vines growing through.

  8. Me and the good lady have been wetting ourselves to the first few seasons of Documental and just now discovered the Western version, which has been named Last One Laughing. 
     

    There’s a Canadian version on Prime with names you will know and an Australian one which I recognised nobody apart from the host, Rebel Wilson.

     

    Zoomed through the Aussie one last night and we have new comedy heroes to find stuff by.

    On the talkover bits I much prefer a single person talking over the conferences rather than 4-6 people as everyone ends up talking over EVERYTHING.  Jeff provides comment and because it's just him it leaves some space for the actual presentation.   Good balance.

    I chose Jeff’s streams over NL and GB for that very reason.

    I think that there’s a lot of potential in the current GB crew if they play it right and Dan gets some good ideas out.

     

    The problem with Jeff, as much as I like him, is he’s incredibly stubborn. Perhaps working alone is best for him, I could easily see people come out at a later date and say he was a nightmare boss.

    Spoiler

    The last episode, the father makes a comment that makes it sound like the end game is to get the whole world severed. Then you effectively have the whole population reduced to babies that only learn what you tell them and so a whole population in the cult.

     

  11. I watched the “Better Call Saul” episode of BB this morning and Saul is still way more of a douche than the Saul we currently have (in the past, but y’know), they still have some more work to get him to be the complete waste of skin he becomes.

     

    Also so much of the BCS show hinges on some throwaway lines about him having bad knees, mentioning Nacho and Lalo. They did some great work fleshing his backstory out from that.

    I have watched dozens of hours of videos on YouTube the last few weeks on From games and I NEED MORE

    Have you seen these videos where a Scottish fella gets his non-gamer girlfriend to play the Souls games?

     

     

    They’ve just done Elden Ring as well. Apologies if this has been posted numerous times, the Elden Ring thread is too vast for me to wander in there now.

  13. I can’t see how we get anywhere near all the answers we want out of the last episode.

    Spoiler

    I want more back story on Petey, what happened to him to pull him out.

    More back story on Cobel.

    Will we see Burt again? 
    What’s with the testing floor?

    Did the wife actually die? And regardless of the answer, what did they do to get her?

    Is Cobel after some kind of similar thing for her mother? Was she working on the inside?

    What work do they actually do?

     

    There’s probably a ton more but I’d be surprised if they manage to fit even half of everyone’s questions into one episode.

    I just hope they stick the landing, set the next series up while still having a solid conclusion to the series.

  14. @Gotters

    Spoiler

    I dunno, there was a scene before Burt got retired where the boss was keen to see how some final plan was coming along, so I think the work does have a point to it.

     

    I’m really interested in how the different people behave in the outside. I’m fully expecting some of the lovable characters to end up being complete shit bags.

     

  15. I was watching the latest episode with the other half who has only seen bits. I let out a “holy shit!” as the reveal happened.

     

    Best thing currently showing I think.

     

    Spoilers:

    Spoiler

    So her death was faked potentially just to try and persuade him to join up?

    I’m guessing that only a small amount of people can do their work so they get headhunted pretty viciously.

    Dylan - I think he knows what’s going on but he’s a mercenary.

    Helly has to be in on it and is most likely a Keir family member.

    Irving - not sure, but the hallucinations and dirty fingernails have to be leading somewhere.

     

    Going back to an earlier episode with the “wellness session”, really shows just how fucked up this organisation really is!

  16. There’s a free e-book on the Apple Book store that fills in some context, including a copy of the Orientation Booklet.

     

    Most intriguing though is this passage that implies what happens when they refine the numbers. Spoilers if you’re sensitive about that kind of thing:

    I also predict….

    Spoiler

    Helly’s “outie” is completely in on it and knows exactly what they’re doing. Dylan might also.

    I would also not be surprised if it turns out that either Burt or Irving is a massive homophobe.

     

  17. I’ve watched all episodes twice through so far, it continues to be excellent.

     

    Theories on where it’s going:

     

    Spoiler

    I think the company is responsible for Mark’s wife’s death and I suspect that the whole thing is some kind of religious cult.

     

    It’s really very good but also terrifies the shit out of me. Once you start thinking about the reality of that situation…
