  1. I can't speak for later cycles, but in the first few, there's not a whole lot tying the individual packs together. In typical FFG style, each cycle introduces new themes and mechanics, but each scenario is an individual challenge.


    The "campaign mode" was introduced with the "saga" expansions, which includes Boons and Burdens, but those cards were only designed to be used in campaign play. It's possible that they've expanded the scope of the campaign mode with the revised set, to allow players to make their own campaigns?


    That doesn't really answer your question, sorry. I can't really guess what their plans are for the adventure packs. I'd assume they're going to keep them the same, otherwise there's a lot of work ahead of them. I'd recommend a pack or two, certainly, as there's only three scenarios in the box.

    Mainly that you shouldn't spend your life trying to live up to other people's expectations of who you should be.


    I thought the peril was very straightforward:

    The family's discord was breaking the Encanto apart, weakening their powers and literally breaking the house.


    Mirabel was able to bring everyone back together.




    Perhaps we could have had a bit more of that supposed discord, then. It was hardly a family rife with problems. We got a song about Luisa being somewhat overworked, Alma wasn't the warmest matriarch, and obviously Mirabel and Isabela didn't get on, but everyone else seemed very happy and functional.


  3. The family watched this a few days ago. It looks amazing, full of bright and bold colours and incredibly realistic-looking hair and cloth. They must have had a team of people working on nothing but animating Mirabel's skirts. The songs were alright but my aging brain has already forgotten them all. The story was very poor, and I found myself confused about the peril that was supposed to be central to the plot. What was the lesson in the end?

  4. A splash of milk? Whose recipe are you using? You should be able to substitute any kind milk and get fairly good results, but it sounds like you don't have enough liquid in your mix.


    If you want tall, crispy puds, you want a thinner batter. I've been using the batter from Jamie Oliver's toad in the hole recipe and pouring it into a preheated muffin tray with about a tbsp of oil in each divot. Oven as hot as it will go, leave them alone for 15 minutes before checking on them and hey presto you've got puds.

    Has this been taken off imdb tv?


    I've been wondering that. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that it suddenly went from "free with ads" to purchase-only on the Amazon Prime website, but I've been able to continue watching it via the Prime Video app on my phone (despite not having a Prime membership).

  6. It's a common answer but The Inner Light is what I'd pick if I could introduce someone to Trek with only a single episode. It's a classic "weird anomaly" episode; doesn't rely on you knowing a great deal about the characters; and with a simple premise it tells the kind of thoughtful, bittersweet story that only really good sci fi can.
