TV Addictions 2017

The motel, when Richard eventually found it, was in a poorish state of repair, but no worse than most of the rest. The doorway had been painted, not well, but at least recently. The most striking feature of the door, however, was the bold and shiny brass plaque fixed in the dead centre of it, on which was engraved the legend:

NORMAN BATES' HOLISTIC MURDER MOTEL
We do the whole crime
We kill the whole person
(Missing women and nosy detectives a speciality)
Bates Motel, White Pine Bay

This week the ATTeam discuss their most recent binge-watches - Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Netflix) and Bates Motel (A&E, Netflix).

S3 E2: A Nintendo Switch in Time

Time to discuss the Nintendo Switch. The story so far...

In the 1970s, Magnavox released the Odyssey - very first video game console. Since then, every element of videogaming has improved a thousandfold. Graphics now verge on the photorealistic. Uncompressed, lossless 5.1 audio plays from our speakers. Controllers sense our movement accurately in real-time, if we need a controller at all - but we've never fully achieved the original dream of those visionary Magnavox engineers - a controller which can successfully convince us that we're holding a glass with an ice cube in it or two ice cubes or two ice cubes and some water.

Until now.

In this week's episode, Chella and Drew share their thoughts on Nintendo's newest video game console and cocktail simulator, the Nintendo Switch.

Season III - Episode I A NEW SEASON

 

 

It is a period of Christmas cheer.

Rebel podcasters, Skyping between

hidden bases, have recorded their

first episode beyond the eventful

year 2016.

 

During the holiday, the rebel cinephiles managed to catch a showing of the new Star Wars film, ROGUE ONE, the awaited spin-off with enough hype to split an entire fandom down the middle.

 

Pursued by their sinister Thursday deadline, Chella and Drew race home toward their listenership, custodians of the hottest takes that can inform the people... about whether the film is any good, I guess?

 

Oh, also, spoiler warning.
