Revolutions

An Anthology of Speculative Fiction set in Manchester Paperback – 21 Oct 2015. This is a really interesting and fun way to spend a couple of hours. The book (available via Amazon – IISBN-13: 978-1518701351) is so unlike the normal collection of short stories. I particularly loved the way it had a Manchester ‘feeling’ which set it apart ..

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V

Flying planes, riding bikes off cliffs and opening parachutes etc., it gets bit too epic and for me it started to get a bit silly. 

XBox One

XBox One

Xbox is just another gaming console – It’s really good, but there are lots to chose from (and even the new Google Stadia to consider). This review is more about getting you to consider gaming as a good option for your Sci Fi fix

RIPd (2013)

RIPd (2013)

I actually thought that this was a lot of fun, I didn’t get all worked up when some of the plot didn’t flow properly – on the whole it was an easy watching supernatural yarn with a couple of very popular actors at the top of their professions.

The first episode of the first Science Fiction SadCAST produced in 2006 by a few sci fi fans from around the world

Futurama: S03E10: Where The Buggalo Roam

Futurama: S03E10: Where The Buggalo Roam

At any rate, this episode is one of those great filler (read:non Leela/Fry storyline advancing) eps that’s just plain entertaining. I always love it when Bender sings and Kif happens to be one of my favorite visitors

Good Vs Evil

Good Vs Evil

A few of you might remember G vs. E, later named Good vs. Evil. This was one of my favorite shows, and I thought it noteworthy

Futurama: S03E06: Bendless Love

Futurama: S03E06: Bendless Love

This episode delves more into Bender’s sensitive side, a side we didn’t think existed except in relation to food and folk music. It also revisits some old characters like the Robot Mafia and Flexo and some old scenery, the Hip Joint

Futurama: S03E09: The Cyber House Rules

Futurama: S03E09: The Cyber House Rules

This episode has never really made a big impression with me, much like That’s Lobstertainment! It’s a decent episode however, and I really enjoy watching Bender “parent” his little wards, long before the remake of Cheaper by the Dozen
