    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Hamilton has really impressed me this season with his maturity. I think he was completely right in his comments. Whether or not Ocon was right or wrong, Verstappen had the most to lose so should have made sure space was available. I'm not really sure who was in the right/wrong. I mean, if the rules say that you are allowed to unlap yourself then the only way to do it is by overtaking the car that has lapped you. Verstappen acted like he was battling for the lead, rather than battling someone a lap down. Pragmatically he should have just let him through or to make sure he was very careful when it got to wheel to wheel racing. Perhaps there needs to be a system in place to alert the leading cars to when a backmarker might be trying to unlap themselves. Of course, if we didn't have such disparity between cars then the whole issue of backmark ers would be moot... Edit: The more I look at it the more sympathy I have with Ocon, Verstappen literally left him no room. Perhaps he should not have been fighting the race leader but until you change the rules to prevent that then he is able to do so. Verstappen, in his position, should have been much more careful. I did enjoy Brundle's comment that Verstappen might have had a better chance of winning the race if he hadn't taken the time to flip Ocon the bird before getting back to it!

    House of Cards (US) (Netflix)

    Yeah. With a name like House of Cards you do expect it all to come tumbling down at the end. Not just to 'end' without really resolving the story.

    House of Cards (US) (Netflix)

    I read all the hate and just skipped to the final part of the final episode. I honestly don't feel like I missed much at all. It feels like the ending to episode 1 of the new season not the ending to the whole show. I'm so glad I didn't waste time on this season. I read up on it and honestly, they should have just condensed the 8 current episodes into the first episode and then go from there. I hope we find out one day what the original ending was meant to be. Because the ending they gave us was useless.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I also think the game structure has lost focus a bit from Horizon 2. There, if I remember correctly, I selected a series and then those races were available. Makes sense. Here, I complete a race which seems to then open up a load more races to complete, but I take it my performance in the first race doesn't really matter, it is not like a championship structure?

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I'm having the same issues and also loved Horizon 2 and 3. There are already so many items on the map and I'm honestly not really sure what really distinguishes the types of races. I also think it takes far too long to do each race. Not the race itself but the driving to the start, plodding though all the menu options before you start and then at the end waiting for all the points to calculate before you head somewhere else for a different race. I love the exploring part of Horizon but to a certain extent I just want the ability to streamline the races a bit more. It does look lovely and I want to get into it but it does feel very samey to 3.

    The Good Place

    Season 3 has been a downturn although still not bad. I wonder if the resetting of the characters hasn't been done once too often. This is the third/forth time we've watched these characters being introduced to each other and perhaps it is just repeating old ground too much. Also, this version of the characters has seemingly being together for an entire year but it doesn't feel that it is truly being written that way. I've not seen the latest episode yet but it has been a bit slow going this season so far. You look back at the wonder of the first season, the unexpectedness of the second season and suddenly their earth exploits just seem a bit tame. Both Season 2 and 3 had a strong through plot whilst Season 3 gives the impression of not really knowing what to do with the current setting.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    Very true. Great final season and much better finale episode than Buffy. We all bemoan it ended at 5 but perhaps that saved us from a Season 6/7 decline like Buffy.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    Angel always strikes me as a slightly unusual series in that it is more than the sum of it's parts. I love the series, but I can't easily name as many amazing single episodes as I can with Buffy (which, ironically is probably a series which is ultimately less than the sum of it's parts). That season 4 is one very long quite disjointed episode doesn't help. I often find with arc based series these days that you lose the one off amazing episodes that older series may have acidentally arrived at since whilst the series overall is very good, ultimately it often ends up being a bit of a samey blob in that the individual episodes always have to shoe horn in the overriding arc.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    I slightly expected this with Angel recently appearing but complete series of Buffy is now available on Amazon Prime: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/video/detail/B00ET0Q1WI/ref=atv_dp_season_select_atf

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Still seems strange to release it almost on the identical day as Smash.

    Nintendo 64 Mini

    Aside from the obvious games, what would people like to see in an ideal situation? I'd love to see Snowboard Kids on there, San Fransisco Rush 2049, Body Harvest and Star Wars Racer (which was actually really good from memory).

    Nintendo 64 Mini

    Yeah, that's half the problem with the N64 is that several of the top games have already had better remakes - Zelda OOT, Zelda MM, Conker, Perfect Dark, the Banjo games, Starfox 3DS. Even Diddy had the slightly spruced up DS port as did Mario 64 albeit with dodgy controls. Would you want to play the N64 originals knowing there are better versions out there. Of course, if they could include the 3DS Zelda ports on the mini, that would be an attractive option (assuming those ports would hold up on a big screen). I've said it before, but I remain shocked we've never had a proper HD remaster of Mario 64, it is crying out for a release on the Switch.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    I think it was someone here who explained it best. When you see an advert for a Mercedes in a Cinema or a watch on a celebrity, they are not expecting you to go out and buy what you've just seen. They are expecting that if you are ever in a position to buy something like that, that you will think of the brand and go and buy one. Which is broadly true, if I win the lottery I'd probably fancy a Ferrari. Why? Advertising of course. Of course, it's more complicated than that but the fact that my initial opinion of a luxury car I'd buy if I could if a Ferrari already puts them ahead of other luxury car companies. Button may not be top top tier but I think he is bloody good. He kept Hamilton and Alonso very honest when racing against them which is more than you can say of their other teammates.
