    The Worst Characters Committed to Screen

    Aargh. In my defence, it was only showing as a link. In that case, there are plenty of ones to choose from in Lost. I choose Bernard: Too down-to-earth and boring, like he'd wondered in from another show and got stuck.

    Nobody mentioned this guy? Too obvious?
  3. As long as the script isn't all "Guys. Uh...guys!" with one censorially acceptable "oh, Shiiii-" moment.

    Yesterday - Danny Boyle

    A masterclass in how to look permanently bewildered. I hope the finale is him realising he's run out of emotional Beatles songs and has to perform Octopus's Garden at Wembley.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Lego Indiana Jones (PC) - First game completed of 2019! I'd given this short shrift around the original release. Coming back to it now, though, in a desire to play through all the Lego games, I really enjoyed it. It gets the Indiana Jones-ness right and it's constant rewards and bite-size levels make for an enjoyable experience. It was a different enough experience to Lego Batman, which I played before, despite having the same underlying structure. I've also been playing this through with my son, who took to it really quickly as his second Lego game. I'd have finished sooner, only for his insistence on playing the same levels over and over again which I had to oblige - ended up having to finish it off after he went to bed. The lack of split screen in the earlier games also became an issue when one of us wanted to wander off. Thankfully, they improved on that a couple of games later as we're now on to the sequel.

    Silly mistakes by companies that should know better

    They seem happy to sell us the games again, though.

    I still think it's a mistake that PS4 Xbox One and Switch didn't come bundled with backwards compatibility. They had a good thing going for a few generations and it was nice to just need the one console per company under the TV, but then it all went away. Obviously they've cited technical reasons with the new hardware, but not impossible as Xbox's later fixes proved. Even if you had to cynically pay a little something for an extra hardware dongle or a download, I'd have liked the option there.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Is it like Dark where all the nudity was front-loaded into the first episode to get people watching. Er, not that that's why I watched it.

    Wayne - YouTube Original

    I didn't know much about YouTube's own TV output, but it looks like they've been making a few things for their own subscription service. I caught the trailer for this, which piqued my interest and watched the first free episode. On the basis of the that, it was pretty good. It's about a teenager who goes on a quest to get back his dad's car. No idea if the Wayne in the title is a nod to Batman given the vigilante justice he likes to mete out, but it's pretty crude in a good way, fast-paced and it's got that guy from Oz in it. Could be worth signing up for a free trial to watch more. Not sure about paying for a subscription at £12 a month, though. Anything else to do with YouTube Premium to make it worthwhile? I heard Cobra Kai was supposed to be decent.

    Russian Doll - Netflix Groundhog Party

    I never checked how many episodes this had, so this ended a little abruptly for me. I was expecting it to go a little deeper and I'm not a hundred percent sure exactly what they did to get to where they were in the last episode. Or was that just me? Think I need to rewatch it. Great series, though, and thankfully wasn't just Groundhog Day with swearing. Natasha Lyonne's hair was a character in itself.

    Music that was too good for the game it was in.

    It's go to be this: Cock-a-cock-a-doodle-doo Joe will make your dreams come true.
