Mind Your Language - Based on an English Language evening class for newly-immigrated people of all cultures - EVERY single racist stereotype is reinforced in this show, from the Japanese business man complete with camera, the Italian guy in tight pants and open shirt, the dotty Blonde Swede....I co...

I thought the new design for the Transformers in the movie were pretty poor. That comparison of Soundwave just confirms it - the original is SOOOO much better! Sod that, what about Megatron becoming a tank??!! Thundercats - haven't seen it since around 1988... but oh what a show. Thunder... thunder...

Don't remember the jellies but heck I remember He-Man... I went all nostalgic and bought a few series on DVD for cheap. Then I watched them. How tacky a show it was... and Adam (before changing into He-Man) with tights and a pink top... oh but the nostalgia factor makes one look beyond all that!

Oh, some are just mad... Knight Rider (NES) - can't even get past the first level. But that could also be because it's really really unplayable and crap. Batman (NES) - lovely game. But even with a Game Genie I can't finish it. Super Hunchback (Gameboy) - even with a Game Genie I can't finish it. I ...

Oh, Football management sims - I've virtually been banned from them by my wife :P Championship Manager 2 was great - besides the UK one I also had it in Dutch for the Dutch, Belgian and Italian leagues on the PC. Oddly enough you could edit the text bar that flashed throughout the game. So you could...

When does Retro Gamer come out every month?

Hardly a long forum to be had here. But I'd like to know on what date the Retro Gamer comes out. I've been going to the shop every couple of days for the past 2 weeks checking if the new one (57) is out as I don't know when to expect it...

It reminds me in a way of when Diana died and I woke up in a country that had suddenly collectively jumped on a bandwagon and left me looking around going "WTF!?" - when you just can't believe the sheer number of unthinking people there are around. Yeah, what was that? Feel sad if you wish but it w...

Is this true though? I just saw Channel 4 advertise a show, I think it was on

He got into hot water just a few months back by making a prank call to the emergency services in the name of comedy which was both tasteless and disruptive. Isn't it a criminal offence to waste the emergency services' time? Or was that just a proposal? Calling 999 for a laugh is just sick, what if ...

My point is that it was the lead story of the 10 o clock news which compared to the credit crunch, people dying in Iraq and other big stories, to have it first is a complete joke. That's life mate. Don't read too much into news broadcasts. They are heavily biased in any case and only serve to refle...
