  • Geek Out Weakly 21 – Mortal Kombat (2021)

    Aadil and Ben have a chat about the newly released Mortal Kombat. An amazing first sequence followed by a baffling choice to sideline everyone in favour of a brand-new MMA washup, Cole Young. They chat about the cool fights, fan services and the missing tournament. Our theme song is...
  • Understanding the UFO in Fargo Season 2

    “This is a true story”. Every episode of Fargo, and the film before it, begins with what is, quite simply, a blatant lie. There is very little truth in Fargo, at least in terms of historical precedent. Yet this opening lie sets a tone and hopefully puts the viewer...
  • Geek Out Weakly 20 – Falcon and the Winter Soldier (pt. 2)

    Aadil and Ben chat about the entire series of Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The things they liked, and what let them down, or didn’t quite live up to the hopes and detail evoked in the earlier episodes. Our theme song is by captiveportalmusic, used under the CC ShareAlike...
  • First Time Watching Ewoks: The Battle for Endor

    Having never watched The Battle for Endor before, I was truly shocked by its opening. Two decades before Anakin will slaughter younglings in Revenge of the Sith, this light and fluffy children’s movie begins by brutally butchering most of the cast of the first film. Caravan of Courage’s kid...

Legendary and Sunrise had announced that...
  • First Time Watching Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure

    Finally putting an end to those irritating YouTube videos titled things like “The Star Wars movies they don’t want you to see,” Disney have added the 1980’s Ewok movies to Disney+, introducing a new generation to the bizarre made-for-TV films spinning off the furry aliens from Return of the...
  • The Balls Are Gathered & Then Scattered Once Again

    We’re finally at the end of a long journey. I’ve watched 291 episodes of anime and written 12 articles about them – including this one. That’s a lot. Easily the biggest undertaking I’ve had as a writer thus far. I actually dread to think about the word count of...
  • Ted Lasso – Or Why You Are Watching the Wrong TV Shows

    In this lecture, I will be outlining precisely why Ted Lasso is one of the finest shows on TV, and if you haven’t seen it, will demonstrate why you are watching TV entirely incorrectly. I will be dodging spoilers as far as possible, but the odd one from the...
