Wonder Woman, with Sscott, very enjoyable and I'm actually looking forward to Justice League now. We went to the new cinema in Sheffield town centre, which was far too comfortable for my liking.

stodgy, humourless and SUPER serious
like baking a cake with the right set of ingredients, but in the wrong amounts, needed a LOT more explanation as to what was going on

and off it goes from the memory stick

More of Better Call Saul season 3. I've got about 4 episodes(including the one to be be broadcast on Monday) to go. It's okay, but not hitting the highs that I've come to expect of other US boxset type series - especially considering its illustrious predecessor.

I've been making my way through Consolevania and VideoGaiden, I have to say I've been guilty of dismissing these in the past but there's some funny stuff here.

Went to cinema with friend to watch Wonder Woman we bought thought it was brilliant.. Awesome bad guys with the Death Adder lookalike and the slit mouth woman in the mask. Liked it so much I bought a Wonder Woman figure from EBay

Consolevania was ace, and at times very, very funny. Videogaiden was OK, but suffered from trying to fit the old content into the restrictions of broadcast TV, losing its edge somewhat.

More of Better Call Saul season 3. Just the last episode to go now. It's okay, but I suspect that the big change pay-off might happen in the next season. It will also be interesting to see "Gene" - effectively what happens to him after Breaking Bad.

Yeah. I thought it was one of those lame reboots, but Kiether Sutherland is reprising his role from the original film.

Star Wars Episode 3 - the prequels get a lot of flak, much of it deserved, but I maintain this is a legitimately great film

Well retro TV-wise I've rewatched 'The Prisoner'

Also watched 'The Corner' mini-series by The Wire's creator

New stuff. 'The Americans' latest season, 'The Leftovers', and 'Ray Donovan' someone's recommended 'The Expanse' (?)

Looking forward to final series of 'Halt & Catch Fire' and 'Black Mirror'
