    Mayans MC - Sons of Anarchy spin-off

    Totally forgot about this. Can't say I'm overly enthusiastic about watching it after SoA. So now the series is finished, is everything in place? Beef? Internal beef? Reaching out to CIA/ATF handlers? Do they "dig into" stuff to find out more information? When I think back to SoA, it's remarkable how plotless it felt at times. Most episodes seemed to be a series of meetings with people just talking at each other in abandoned areas, the biker club, the police station, or an ice cream shop. Kind of the same format as The Only Way is Essex, but people get stabbed or shot in the head at the end of the conversation.

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    I always looked forward to a new Harry Potter movie but just can’t whip up any enthusiasm for this series.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    I watched Rambo 1 & 2 on 4k this weekend. Both look great. Forgot how tight the running times are as well, both of them a shade over 90 minutes. In particular, the opening for Rambo 2 is very economical in its set up. Both films went under my radar when I was younger. I’m not sure why as they’re damn fine action films.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I was in the swamps the other day, when my horse accidentally trampled a dog, but didn't kill it outright. So the dog's whimpering as it lays on its side struggling to get back upright, gasping its last breaths, was pretty sad. I stood over it, thinking maybe I could give it a health potion to get it back on its paws, but nope. All I could do was watch. After about a minute, I think that this dog's death is really slow, so I was about to unholster my gun and put it out of its misery when its legs gave one last little shake and it died. Then suddenly I'm wanted for animal cruelty! Even though it was an accident. The woman from the nearby bait shop starts screaming and running for help, so I have to chase her through the swamp, rugby tackle her and threaten her with my gun to keep quiet. Whilst the whole situation was sad and funny at the same time, it does show up how far we still have to go with video game AI. The dog's death was clearly an accident as he was running around my horse as I tried to hitch it. But the AI can't seem to register that.

    That's great, I'm going to try that carriage thing. I've only been jumping on trains from a horse so far, although that's a pretty cool thing to do. I did discover the other day that driving the train away after robbing it is a good way to escape the law!

    Amazon Prime Video

    I was looking at the app last night and couldn’t see the genre categories for Prime movies. Have they removed them?

    So we got rid of the annoying Coral and we now have the annoying Judith: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WiseBeyondTheirYears

    That was it. Thank you. I hadn’t actually turned it off so not sure how it happened.

    I’m actually pretty disappointed by the weather so far. It has an unnatural feel to it, the way it comes and goes.

    Got a bug where the game won’t let me place waypoints on the map anymore. Tried reloading, rebooting the Xbox, but it doesn’t fix it. I’m done for the night, hope it magically fixes itself for tomorrow. Is it a known bug?

    I sometimes start a session of this with the simplest of intentions. For example, I went to a get a haircut in Valentine, then stopped off at the general store to get some oat cakes for the horse. Then had a random encounter as follows...

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    Haha, I think they need more than "some work" on the animations. Bethesda NPCs have been walking around like rigid meat puppets for too many years.

    Beards and hair are great in this. My current look... Might nip to the barbers to take some of the length off the back.
