  1. Considering the show’s creator was quite involved with Fringe, it’s shocking to see how much of a mis-step this show is. Not only does it feel like the first episode is beginning part ways into a show, thereby squandering a far more effective way to handle the concept, but there’s absolutely no sense of momentum. I wasn’t expecting the mad-cap pace of Fringe, but every episode is so plodding and anaemic that they don’t even feel like first-drafts, just outlines. The seed of the show is promising enough, it’s just that everything which sprouted from it is so inept as to be baffling.
  2. Is it still following the escape>get captured>escape>get captured>escape>get captured pattern?
  3. I died a couple of times in the castle demo and it just sends you back to the start, as long as there’s still time left you can keep playing.
  4. A good finale. I agree that the gore is forever in danger of becoming eye-rolling/absurd (why the hell would anyone live in a city in this universe?) but I also don’t think it’s there simply for novelty or shock value. It reminds me of Superman’s ‘world of cardboard’ speech, where he talks about the fragility of everything and everyone around him, and the frustration of having to control his every action. The level of tolerance and patience needed for a super-human to live his life on tip-toes is immense, so it’s effective to show that a lot of these heroes are pretty shit and get people kille
  5. Pleased with Stranded Deep. Always wanted to give it a try but suspected it was a game I might bounce off hard.
  6. It was fine. But only fine. The first twenty or so minutes promise a film we don’t actually get, which was disappointing as it could’ve been a great one, and the structure is fragmented with too many characters but I’ve certainly seen far worse. If they really want to go the multiple film route (and apparently they do) then fleshing out two or three characters only would’ve been a better approach. Of course, that would’ve required better writing, so maybe the ‘throw everything at the wall’ approach here was just the path of least resistance.
  7. Time Trap may have been low budget, but it wasn’t junky! A fine film in its own right.
  8. I bet there’s some epic hand-waving to address time travellers not going back to a more pivotal time before the aliens arrive, as opposed to just getting fresh meat for the grinder.
  9. He has the best serum that Hydra were able to muddle up, so he’s likely not as strong as the new super soldiers but is able to kick their arses due to being very well trained. The vibranium arm certainly doesn’t hurt either.
  10. True, but a large portion of Black Widow’s life was spent training to be an elite assassin, to a level which has inflicted permanent damage on her psyche. You could argue Hawkeye as well, of course, but I’ll never be convinced that guy is entirely human. I think he’s just meta on a level which isn’t easily detectable. Nobody is that accurate with an arrow. I do agree that they’ll steer away from ever having Sam fight anyone too powerful.
  11. His suit levels the playing field a bit, but I certainly see your point. He was still unable to decisively beat Batroc, who hasn’t had the serum (though Batroc is exceptionally well trained, and even made Steve break a little sweat.) You get the feeling that if you dropped Sam into the Battle for New York he’d put on a good show but still end up as paste. The message of ‘you don’t need some super juice to be a hero!’ is a laudable one, of course, but there’s still a part of me saying ‘don’t you, though?’
  12. It’s been a randomly occurring bug on Amazon Prime for over a year now. They don’t seem to give a shit about definitively fixing it.
  13. Probably still needs some polish.
  14. Ah yes, ROTT was smashing. I have fond memories of the music.
