    Lost - The Full Series Thread

    Your might be thinking of a cliffhanger where they showed Lots of people misunderstood the ending so I’m not surprised by this latest news. I wish I’d misunderstood it so I thought it was good but like a lot of shows it’s all about the journey. JJ Abrams isn’t obsessed with the thing that’s actually inside the puzzle box - he’s excited by the mystery. I’m rewatching it at mo with my wife and I’m enjoying it fwiw. Lost for me was an amazing experience for the ideas it fired in my imagination and the speculative conversations I had with friends about it. It’s a show with funky what ifs - the ultimate answers aren’t all that. First time round I was pissed at the ending but I’m prepared this time round.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    When Starsgard and Harris are warily sizing each other up at the prospect of being paired with each other by the sarge (Gorbachev) I joked that it would make a funky buddy movie setup not realising Mazin was way ahead of me. Couple more recommendations for related material. Threads - a kind of fictionalised docudrama about a nuclear attack on Sheffield. Episode one of Chernobyl really reminded me of this and I’d love to know if it was an influence. Into Eternity - Amazing nuclear waste doco about the repercussions and challenges of trying to store something for 100,000 years that you absolutely do not want a future civilisation to discover. It’s very softly spoken, thoughtful and completely terrifying. Trailer.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    Yep, that's the livetweet I mentioned earlier, which I've been co-producing. She's called Claire Corkhill and she's awesome. Collected tweets from Episode two here - link. Have to say Sky have been really supportive of this. And the show's amazing. Combination of 70's conspiracy thriller and horror.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    I saw Jared Harris responded to this question on Twitter by basically doing that sign for ‘money’ you do by rubbing your thumb and fingers together. In other news I think this is an extremely good show. Also, I worked wi a nuclear waste academic at Sheffield uni on a live tweet which might be of interest in terms of providing extra background info and explainers - link. She’s doing one for episode two, too.

    @Jammy. That is a comfort.

    The Spurs Thread

    Was listening to a Man U fan on radio talk about how they’ve had to go from expectation to hope and I realised Spurs have gone the other way. And as a fan for 40 years I don’t necessarily know how to feel about it. I need my pain, dammit. /Kirk

    Retro repair and refurbishment

    Thanks @MikeBeaver and @Ninja Doctor - looks like I’ll be sorting out a little soldering training next week. Found this page while looking up fuse replacement and it mentions our good forum - link.

    Retro repair and refurbishment

    Anyone care to link to a troubleshooting guide to a PAL SNES? I’ve got one I bought from this very forum, as non working I think, but I’d like to put it through its paces just in case. No power light at mo...
  9. Thanks @redballoon. I guess the IP stuff does complicate things although it’s clear you’ve travelled a fair way from Ultimate’s space. All proceeds to charity? I have to say I think Monument Microgames do a great job of physical ZX Spectrum games. Their edition of Endless Forms Most Beautiful is a treasure.
  10. Oh that looks lovely. Are you thinking of doing a physical release @redballoon?

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    From the writer of The Hangover Part II! Incredibly. I thought this was quite stunning.

    Gemini Man

    The non-discrepancy between the two willies reminds me of ‘Oh no! It’s me when I looked slightly different!’ when Bob Mortimer’s Noël Edmonds is surprised by Vic Reeves’ Hairy Cornflake.

    Chaotic Productions

    “Oh boo hoo all my kit’s been washed away/I’ve had to pretend to be a mutant to get back on my set/Ranulph Fiennes bombed my dam (see *)...” One of Herzog’s crew on Fitzcarraldo CUT OFF HIS FOOT WITH A CHAINSAW to prevent the spread of venom after being bitten by a venomous snake. More here. *Actually that is pretty impressive.
  14. @b00dles - I apologise. Can you do one for Predator at a Car Boot Fair?
