  1. It would definitely save time. Like you said it would be interesting to see if they'd work together to that extent. I guess sky in uk has embraced Netflix, iPlayer etc but they still shun Amazon prime

    Comics Phase Fourteen

    Still enjoying the X-books although i realise not much has actually happened yet it's more we are being bombarded by ideas and world building. I'm not sure i buy the idea that Xavier and magneto have known about Moira all along. It makes the countless times they've been at odds somewhat idiotic even if the implication was that Magneto said he'd keep Xavier on point if he felt he was wavering. I'm yet to be convinced why it's taken Xavier until now to enact the krakoa plan. I feel it would make more sense if moira had revealed her memories to xavier and magneto at x1 rather than x0. I'm intrigued at the notion of apocalypse as an ally. I guess Hickman likes the character as east of west has version(s) of him. Cyclops had a nice badass scene.

  4. I usually google "film/tv show streaming UK" and there's usually a top hit saying if and where it is available.
  5. If it's a small group and they are isolated they do. Much like how genetic diseases become more common in small isolated groups so too do physical traits defined by genetics. Genetic "bottlenecks" can also lose diversity through randomness too. The founding population would have to be very diverse and considerably large for it not to happen. Obviously it would not homogenise over 3 generations, more like a couple of centuries.

    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    Seems to be a lot of rumours circulating about a ewan McGregor obi wan disney+ series. Presumably an adaptation of the long rumoured film trilogy prior to the financial flop of solo.
  7. Maybe crashing from the success of "the boys". It seems it's already when of their watched shows. Let's see if I get the end of Turn. If I do customer services or their AI is watching us I think this is the main issue with Amazon and customers indifference. A lot of us have prime mainly for the delivery service and see the TV and film content as a bonus. As such I wouldn't be willing to ditch the delivery in order to make a point about the streaming service. I guess if the price goes up or they separate the two things (the latter wouldn't surprise me) then I'd maybe make a point of switching off. If Netflix pulled half the shit Amazon has I'd switch off but I'm not relying on netflix for free same day deliveries.

    Comics Phase Fourteen

    The technarchy is new mutants and the phalanx came out of a gen x and uncanny X-Men story. I think they were the villains in the second annihilation cosmic event.
  9. I've noticed a similar Amazon trick. I was finally getting around to catching up on hell on wheels and noticed most of it isn't free any more. Final season has first two episodes on prime while you have to pay for individual episodes for the end of the show. So if i hadn't checked this I'd wind up having to pay £2-2.50 for the remaining 5 episodes! How on earth can they have the rights for 2 episodes and not the last 5??? I need to check if this is a one off or whether it's happening with other non Amazon originals. AMC shows that are complete might be most likely candidates.

    You raise a good point in the sense they might be now although I'm learning more towards

    Preacher- AMC Comic Adaptation ll

    I've caught up on the show over the last week. I gave up after season 2 as I felt it became weak once they got off the road and stagnated in a town for the rest of the season. Season 3 is a big improvement though - largely because it adapts my favourite part of the comics which was angelville. There are other elements they have tinkered with that helps the show a lot though. There's a LOT less Hitler and Arseface, Herr Starr gets plenty of screentime and perhaps best of all they give Cassidy his own storyline. The latter helps a lot as i feel it prevented the show getting too bogged down in one location. It's not really the comic but it's a great remix of it - better than the Walking Dead show has done. And the humour is genuinely funny especially if you like a little gutter humour. Season 4 episode 2 explains why God made dinosaurs extinct and it got a laugh out of me. I'm interested to see how it all wraps up.
  13. Both definitely had to have it in them to be nudged/influenced. I guess having hideously painful experiences sent both of them off the deep end and eventually both of them appear to make it out the other side. Causing the collapse of nations/kingdoms in the process.

    The Boys (Amazon)

    Don't forget sporting celebrities, which the show often has the heroes emulating (most obviously with A-train). It's amazing how someone can be a drug user, wife beater or rapist yet if they score a winning goal in the next game the fans forget/excuse it.

    Formula One 2019

    That would be good. He's languishing at Renault currently and they seem to be falling back rather than moving forward.
