… it’s because I’m busy playing video games. If, for some Godforsaken reason, you still don’t play video games, let me tell you something: Winter is gaming season. The summer blockbusters have been and gone. The warm, hazy friend-filled nights spent outdoors have dissipated with the first chills of September. Slowly but surely we retreat to our warm, cosy caves, fall to our sofas, plump our pillows and… turn on the TV! Autumn is when most big games and TV…

Just two hours ago my friend Dave and I found ourselves wondering if Ron Moore could actually do it. After the jaw-droppingly good mini series, and the stupendously awesome first season, the last few years had seen Ron Moore… slip a little. We were propelled through seasons 2 and 3, lifted up upon the fluttering wings of promise; the promise that we’d see more epic story arcs like those in the mini series and season 1. It wasn’t to be…

A lot of new stuff has been included, with the only notable exception is the lack of Homer’s girly yelp at the end. The intro does a much better job of introducing the side-characters. The show has been in HDTV for a while, but the intro being two decades old was understandably not HDTV — this new intro is! (so…

I’m writing this while offline, because it being England, and not some Western, developed country, we’ve had yet another power cut. At 2:20am.

So, where was I… Ah yes, I was waking up, the morning after the night before; the night of banana-oriented depravity. Bananas had been consumed in vast quantities (well, why not?) and we’d…

(Don’t cancel your subscriptions Republicans, please! It was but a joke! With the inauguration of our new Marxist Overlord, I’ll try to work some more political jokes into my daily diatribe. With a democrat finally back on the throne, the republicans will probably start being all funny and bitter about how awful a leader Obama is…) To start off with a bang (the men are going to like this one), I give you the stereotypical Democrat after 8 years of…

Boop. Boop… Those heavy, imposing bass beats that 24 fans the world over have been waiting for… for almost 2 years! Somehow Kiefer’s managed to pull out yet another season of 24 — we’re at season 7 now (and he’s aged remarkably well!), and CTU has finally been shut down (something about torturing people and operating a bit outside the law. The season started with Jack facing down a tribunal of Senators, explaining that while it’s not pleasant, torturing Muhammed…
