Doctor Who: Season 11 – Season Review Episode 1-5

In a breezy garage at TheSuffolkRam house, He and Middlemiester meet up in order to discuss how the season has been so far and where they feel the season is heading

We kick off with ‘The Woman who fell to earth’ looking at what we think of the new Doctor and the advantage and disadvantage of having lots of companions, the pronunciation of tongue and the filming format.

Next Up is ‘The Ghost Monument’, a different kind of episode featuring vicious cloth and the first look at the new TARDIS.

Then we look at the first historical episode of the season with ‘Rosa’. We talk about how the episode showed the harsh reality of segregation in the US but how it also crossed the line into preaching occasionally, we also talk about how good British people are at American accident

We then talk about our fear of spiders as we move onto ‘Arachnids in the UK’. We discuss how we feel about companions families are dealt with in the series, also are we going to see some Moffet monsters. We also talk about Christ North and how annoying Yasmin’s mum is.

Finally we move on the most recent broadcast episode: ‘The Tsuranga Conundrum’ we talk about the happy monster and the lack of ‘threat’ in the episode. We also talk about one of Ram’s favorite style of episode and if we are going to get a series ark.

Rand(Nerds); Episode 100

We did it! we made it to episode 100! Welcome to our North Korea special!
After having our bit of cake, we begin with Skazz talking about another modern FPS with Wolfenstein the new colossus (SPOILERS AHEAD). We talk about some of the silly controversies around the game and how ridiculous they have become. The fun of the game play including the awesome throwing knives.
TheSuffolkRam has been playing the latest game from one of his favourite developers Big Robot. This time with the awkward title ‘The Light Keeps us Safe’.  Open-ish world survival horror stealth games that uses a light mechanic to interact and deal with killer robots around the world. He talks about the mechanics, the freaky robots and what has been produced so far.
Middlemeister has been playing Resident Evil 4 and putting children in bins as well as fighting mad Spanish people. He talks about the changes to the way the game plays compared to the first 3 and some of the interesting AI in the game.
Ram has been watching a cult classic MST3K, a series where they take the piss out of crap old films, and has not really seeing the funny side.
We also bore Middlemeister with coding talk and pathfinding. We also lose track discussing Resident Evil games and how to make horror films scary in  a world with mobile phones. We also discusses our ‘feelings’ on Star Wars.
