  1. The Q?!

    I know for a fact of one Disney film that will never be remade or even released from their mythical vault. Song of the South, for people that thought the crows from Dumbo were too subtle with the racism.

    Great show! Seems to be almost a tick-list of things I am enjoying on Netflix at the moment (except Expanse Season 2 which I have just finished. Epic!). 

    For. Truly deep Armando Iannucci cut, here is Radio 4’s Charm Offensive: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programme…..odes/guide

    I’ve seen The Thick of It, In the Loop and a few episodes of Veep. Iannuci is a favorite of mine as well.

    If I talk more The Expanse, I might be banned off the show. Little anecdote, I played The Expanse board game and posted about it on twitter. Afterwards I was retweeted by Daniel Abraham and James SA Corey accounts, so for one day I was internet famous and for a good cause. Made my day.

    I tried to watch The Thick Of It. I couldn’t get passed all the camera shakes. Watching 5 minutes of it made me dizzy, which is a shame because it looked like a good show.

    I’ve started in on Lauren’s section of the Geek Speak playlist, having finished Jo’s. (The initial sections that is.)

    Great show as always, I am catching up with all the podcast over the last couple of weeks. Got a lot of things I need to watch lol. 

    Oh and Alex that is so cool that you where retweeted by Daniel Abraham and James Corey, that is just cool. I am defo 100% on board with the show, but could not get into the book, well wait for the series to catch up
