    New Luther was a two episode Winter Special, both aired last night.

    It was good, but the perhaps not as good as the earlier Seasons, of which 2 remains my favourite for reasons I can't articulate.

    Here's the thing: they've got an experienced military man with them, growling orders about "squad leaders take initiative!" and "wait until they get into range!" but hasn't shown them jack shit about cover-and-move, keeping a safe distance during combat, and any form of stealth.

    And these fucking aliens, for all their technology, have the worst targeting systems in the fucking universe.

    Yet, here I am, early in Season 5, just wanting to see what the fuck happens next.

    Not to mention the gigantic waste of fucking ammo, though their ability to replace it is realistic, because America.

    And the fact that all that petrol they keep finding would have gone off in a few months, unless everything is diesel.

    I'll stop now.

    The rant is strong with this one.



    It's like they went to the Storm Trooper school of shooting, right? They have done this planet invasion thing 1,000 times over and managed to fuck it up. Against humans, with no real military force. And no real big weapons. Scattered to the far reaches of 'merica. The 2nd Mass, against the bigwigs of the ENTIRE Alien Army.

    I reckon mot people after the second season were..

    But as we sit here and rant about the gaping holes in the plot, and the sub-standard acting, and the mediocre special effects - we all still watched it. I myself watched it, right through to the end.

    Pfitzy, I think you know how the story ends. And yes, I chose this image especially for you.

    Hard to stop when its on NetFlix and just keeps rolling through.

    So now, I kind of have it running on the tablet next to me while I'm working, and just listen to the awful, awful dialogue.

    Right. Finally finished it. Let us never speak of this again

    P.S. Doctor Stupid Lady - if you're wounded, get medical attention sooner rather than later.

    It stops you dying, and therefore stops unnecessary plot devices involving random aliens that dress up like Professor Stupid Man's ex-wife

    Finished The Last Kingdom and really enjoyed it.

    Watched the first episode of Vinyl and enjoyed it. Thought Andrew Dice-Clay was fantastic.

    My wife and I are most of the way through the first season. We're really enjoying it after having read most of the books in the past.

    I think Titus Welliver is well cast as Bosch and Jamie Hector (Marlo Stanfield from the wire is great! He also looks like he hasn't aged a day from The Wire which is kind of crazy because it was a decade ago).

    OK, watched the Season 6 finale of the Walking Dead last night. So much to process.

    [spoiler]
    • First off, I fucking hand cliffhangers where I have to wait an entire 6 months to find out the answer.
    • The first and most obvious questions is, who got clubbed by Luculle / Negan. Tons of theories on this. Robert Kirkman said it was a 'beloved character', so clearly it wasn't Eugene, Sasha or Rosita. Probably not Abraham either. Since they've got so far off the comic book script it probably isn't Glenn either. My theory is was someone on the left of Rick, somewhere near Carl.
    • How were the Saviors so good at tracking Rick's group? A fan forum I read thinks there could have been a spy in Ricks group, say Enid. They also made a link between Maggie's illness and how it wasn't symptoms of a pregnancy illness. Theory is she was poisoned by Enid in order to get the group of of Alexandrina
    Up there with one of the best finales in the show's history. At least Game of Thrones starts up in less than a month. More mind fucking cliffhangers to screw with my mind.

    Didn't know they had turned it into a series. I will be after that right away. Amazing book, should be an absolute belter of a series.

    With only a couple of episodes to go I think it's safe to say that Vinyl has been a big disappointment considering the talent involved....

    Abrams is a producer on the show, but hasn't directed any episodes...

    Ok with season 6 of Game of Thrones imminent (isn't it?), I've been a somewhat late comer and basically watched it all last year after someone gave me a hard drive of eps.

    What's the legal ways of watching it this year? What channel or streaming service is it on?
