    Critical Role - The new campaign

    I’ve not finished the episode, but the whole Spurt section was some of the funniest stuff I’ve seen in a long time.

    Gaming Myths

    There were hidden screens in Jet Set Willy. Things like getting the boat to sail away etc.

    What are you reading at the moment?

    It's definitely the best version, but it does make for a monster introduction into Stephen King books.

    What are you reading at the moment?

    Are you doing the complete and uncut version?

    First film seen at the cinema

    I’m sure I saw Superman and Star Trek TMP in 79. I *think* I saw Star Wars in 78 but can’t be certain and my Grandad who would have taken me isn’t around to ask. Black Hole is another likely candidate but that was 79 again. Definitely watched Condorman in 80

    Critical Role - The new campaign

    That’s some next level role play and scheming. I’m only 25 minutes in though, so I expect there’s more to come. It does make me wonder how much planning that they do with Matt off screen, either individually or as a group. Clearly he knew how to play the last 20 minutes of the previous episode.

    This is us - NBC show now on Channel 4

    Ah, glad you’ve posted here. I was trying to find this thread but searching for “this is us” appears to break the forum. I think this season has been good so far with the Vietnam storyline a real highlight.
  9. Another incredibly TNGish episode this week with hints of Discovery chucked in.
  10. Yep, it does. Not sure whether pricing it that way is marketing or to get round any regulations by selling aftermarket upgrades that would be illegal if factory fitted. https://www.motor1.com/news/146301/dodge-demon-priced-85k/
  11. That was all good entertaining stuff. No tedious guests. No “hilarious” staged disasters and some good banter between presenters. It’s interesting to see how cheap you can get those muscle cars if you are happy to forego a few cylinders. The Camaro with a 2.0T starts at $25k!

    Looking at the probabilities here, it looks like it’s a spread of about 8 but that is offset for high or low end rolls. https://statmodeling.stat.columbia.edu/2014/07/12/dnd-5e-advantage-disadvantage-probability/
  13. I wouldn't say it's playing it straight as it's clearly not, but this is very much a show of two parts. The scifi plots at the core of each episode are absolutely 100% in the style of Star Trek The Next Generation, to the extent that you could lift out the characters of Bortus, Isaac and co and replace them with Worf, Data and Picard and it wouldn't feel out of place. The court room episode where they were deciding the future of Bortus and Klyden's daughter was classic Will Ryker stuff, and the one where Isaac was stranded on the planet with the doctor's kids was pure Data. That's then overlaid with a bunch of Family Guy jokes that sometimes come to the fore and other times disappear into the background entirely.

    Counterpart (TV Show)

    Five episodes into this season and it’s not getting any more straightforward.
