Re: Magnum Rewatch 22 - Memories Are Forever

Great to see the podcast back! I must admit that I completely missed that his wife was supposed to be French. I spotted that she didn't look very Vietnamese, but that could have just been bad casting. It didn't make any difference to my enjoyment of the episode though. Just posting as an American wh...

Re: Fight the Future 09 - The Maze Runner

I found the book frustrating. The author inexplicably has the characters withhold information and rules from the new guy, and then they punish him because he didn't know the rules. Sounds like a normal day at high school to me - I never had any idea what game everyone else was playing, I just knew ...

Re: Fight the Future 08 - A Boy And His Dog

It's so silly when people think something is bad just because it didn't meet their very narrow expectations. That's not to say everyone needs to like what I like (and only that)... just learn to distinguish 'I disliked' from 'I thought it was objectively bad.' I agree, and do actually like Hunger G...

Re: Fight the Future 08 - A Boy And His Dog

I've not seen the film or read this story (and not sure I want to after hearing the description, despite it being written by Harlan Ellison), but how is this YA? I'm not just talking about the absence of modern tropes like overwrought / unnecessary love triangles or 2 pages of story getting stretche...

Re: Magnum Rewatch Ep 21 - From Moscow to Maui

It's amazing how cheap old dvd box sets are now - I recently bought complete sets of Knight Rider, A Team, Xena and Quantum Leap for approx £30 ($60 CDN) each! No idea when I'll have time to watch them all, but it's great to know I can dip into the sets when I want to. Unfortunately they never did a...

Re: Magnum Rewatch Ep 20 - The Woman on the Beach

It's one thing for a place to be haunted, but haunted by an irritating German groundskeeper? The terrible, moderately racist '80s sitcom writes itself. His accent was so poor, I was expecting some kind of twist where he was revealed to be Sarah's old lover, still living on the estate until he finds...

Apparently the UK chose 999 deliberately because it was awkward to dial - back in the days when the numbers were sent using electric pulses down the copper wire, it was considered incredibly unlikely that you would get 27 pulses accidentally, whether it was due to someone dialling really quickly, or...

So, given Ian's penchant for odd rhythm games, do you think there's any chance we could get a Gitaroo Man stream? I suppose it would depend on if they have a way to stream PS Vita/PSP games (and if Ian even wants to play it). I second this request. Gitaroo Man is my second favourite rhythm game aft...

You can see the reflection of the green screen in Kathleen's glasses, so I guess they built a real set in front of the garage door.

Like the Magnum podcast, I found this surprisingly interesting. I do wonder how long it will take for each episode to devolve into "it's only like this because the story wouldn't work otherwise, and because the writing has the subtlety of a sledgehammer", but I'm more than happy to keep li...

Aguire was the only game out of the 8 where I had less clue about what the game was about after the brief explanation, than I did before starting to watch the video. I'm sure everything would make sense if I had the rules and pieces in front of me, but it didn't feel instantly accessible like the ot...
