Lov­ing West­world – i’m amazed a se­ries based on a fun, but un­de­ni­ably shallow, sci-fi movie has found so much depth. Rants

i’m not sure how long i’ll be stick­ing with The Walk­ing Dead. the sea­son seven premiere felt like it was tee­ter­ing into tor­ture porn ter­ri­tory.

de­lighted that you can now down­load a few episodes of The Ad­ven­ture Game – i want a dVd box set!

Love the ti­tle se­quence of Class. Very To­mor­row Peo­ple! Rants

How could ram at­tack the shadow Kin leader? He’d have had to hop down a cor­ri­dor with one leg chopped off, bleed­ing to death!

al­most us, The Greasy Stran­gler was ex­tra­or­di­nary. never seen any­thing like it be­fore; prob­a­bly my film of the year.

it’s science rather than science fic­tion but i’d heartily rec­om­mend werner Her­zog’s doc­u­men­tary Lo And Be­hold.

well, Class isn’t as bad as early Torch­wood is all i can say.

the new Logan trailer looks ace. Rants

The Walk­ing Dead is dead to me. i’m not in­ter­ested in char­ac­ters be­ing used as can­non fod­der. it seems that ev­ery time one shows any signs of hope or hap­pi­ness they’re im­me­di­ately beaten or torn to death. i can de­spair no more.

feel­ing re­ally pos­i­tive about Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story: Roanoke with its hy­per meta lay­ers of mock­doc hor­ror. Just hop­ing it doesn’t jump the shark again half­way through the sea­son.

if you want some true scares, hunt down Un­til Dawn: Rush Of Blood for playsta­tion Vr. i’m still hav­ing night­mares.

Loved Raiders! The Story Of The Great­est Fan Film Ever Made, the doc­u­men­tary about the kids who re­made in­di­ana Jones on VHs in the ’80s. in­spir­ing, hi­lar­i­ous and mov­ing. RiP

sad to hear of the loss of steve dil­lon. one of the Bri­tish comic book in­dus­try’s au­then­tic greats.

fi­nally watched Dune. Joy­fully aw­ful non­sense with some hella quotable one-lin­ers (“i’m the house­keeper”).

Korean hor­ror The Wail­ing is a sub­tle, eerie mas­ter­piece.

also loved stu­dio Ghi­bli’s The Red Tur­tle, out next year. as beau­ti­fully un­der­stated as any­thing the stu­dio’s ever made.

Red Dwarf XI has been an ab­so­lute joy; “Kr­y­sis” be­ing my stand­out episode.

Johnny cash’s “Hurt” cer­tainly adds some poignancy to the Logan trailer. Hope the movie lives up to it.

could the duf­fer Brothers turn Raiders! The Story Of The Great­est Fan Film Ever Made into a movie? or spiel­berg? that’d be meta!

fin­ished my re­watch of Lost. it’s (broadly) fan­tas­tic and works beau­ti­fully when watched to­gether.

Hor­rorville #2 and Comic He­roes #29 are both out now. RiP

dread­ful news about steve dil­lon. rest in peace a true comics leg­end.

i’m a big fan of West­world and Hu­mans, tV shows that make you ask the big ques­tions about ai – like, “would i bang a ro­bot?” Rants

new Doc­tor Who spin-off Class wasn’t made for me and that’s fine. But there’s still some­thing weird about the doc­tor in a show with blood and wank­ing.
