Didn't he also say that he was bored with his life and wanted an adventure?

Why did no one die this week? Not really that bothered as I love this show.

Yes that's what I thought. It's only a throwaway line but they don't waste a word in these scripts.

Only seen the two so far; Bill and Riddle. Both excellent. Can't believe I've missed out on this so far (probably because I'm the only person in the solar system who doesn't find League of Gentlemen funny so didn't think I'd like it)

CARNAGE   On the BBC iPlayer. 

It's a "mockumentary" by Simon Amstell set in the year 2067 with people looking back on how the world became vegan. 

I'm probably bang in the target audience for this as I like Amstell and, well, you know the rest  but there are some good laughs to be had (not least of which is Joanna Lumley's plummy tones being the "voice" of animal thoughts) and Glenn from Thick Of It being a Clarkson-esque shock-jock.

Plus I genuinely couldn't tell if some of the archive footage was faked or real.

Warning: There are some graphic bits in it.

Yeah - if  it grows the readership base then that's a good thing.

I suppose the discussion to have is about the medium. We want good 2000ad stories featuring our favourite characters written by our favourite writers but, the way the world is heading, will comics drawn by your favourite artist be a thing in twenty years?

Are we heading to a world of vidslugs? Where comics - even digital - is a thing of the past? Is 2000ad Blockbuster video in a world of Netflix?

RESIDENT EVIL 4 on the WII (via the WII U).  I'd forgotten how much fun it is. Love the overshoulder gun mechanic - works a treat with the Wiimotes.

Tiny Tips also decided to play it. He thinks it's great too (but was expecting it to be a bit "meh!" because it is "such an old game").

It's in the loft calling to me... "Play with me... play with me... nobody will notice... play with me".

Depending on how you play it, RT is essentially *that* scene from Saving Private Ryan followed by a chase film of sorts.

Ah yes, *that* scene, the GIs stand around discussing Edith Piaf and reminiscing about their adolescent fumbles before the Benny Hill music kicks in and they run around the Quartz Zone tripping up and accidentally pulling each others trousers down as they fall...

Cosh was right; movies and TV are "nice to have"s but it's all about reading 2000ad.

I actually liked that Carol and Morgan centric episode.  Damn, I'd only just learnt that characters name and now he goes and gets killed.  And that one too.

 For some reason as I was watching KONG I wondered if they had ever considered a handsome, square-jawed hunk like Toby Kebbel as the Doc?

Heh! But then 'tonight's' episode, the very next one aired, is Brad Dourif's debut as Crewman/Ensign Suder in 'Meld', which is about as good as Star Trek gets. So there is always hope.

So I watched MELD as a result of this post.

You''re not wrong. It's great. Why on earth did they decide what Voyager needed was a babe in a skin tight  lycra suit as opposed to more quality writing and acting?

I thought you were being harsh on the cgi when I first saw the deer. Then it turned up again.

That was a better balance of talky and action (and obligatory characters being plain daft) that I like in Walking Dead.

But it wasn't brilliant. We need this to be an average episode and better stuff to knock our socks off.

So is this a series of one-off tales of the unexpected then? (except good).

As with most of PETA's campaigns, this is just pure here-have-you-seen-this-nonsense click-bait aimed at pushing brand awareness rather than addressing issues, and almost certainly the brainchild of a results-linked ad/media contractor. Works though, 'cos here we are.

Indeed. They can be twunts.  But that's no reason people shouldn't stop killing and enslaving animals just for personal choice and convenience.  (I appreciate some of you  have health conditions that make this very hard)
