Writer and podcaster for GeekCrewReview...
I was visiting a friend the other day, we were drinking coffee and discussing things like the recent terrible weather and something his kid loves called Paw Patrol. It was all very grown up.
Conversation eventually turned to Geek Crew Review and the lack of gaming content I was producing, he’s right, there is a lack of gaming content and I need to change this, for no other reason than to prevent the fanny from being correct.
Introducing the monthly games ramble.
We are lucky nowadays to have instant access to some fantastic television, all fighting for our time. It can be difficult to decide what to watch with Netflix and Amazon Prime stocking hundreds of episodes of some brilliant TV shows.
I’ve taken the liberty of picking out five shows (not all of them sci-fi) that I think you should be tracking down and watching, so turn off sodding Ex on the Beach and get on it.
Episode 3 of our Podcast is now available over on Soundcloud.
You can listen to it here
We discuss the Super Bowl trailers, including Solo: A Star Wars Story, the best stuff we’ve watched since the last episode and how Star Trek has evolved over the years.

Back in 2002, Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and more recently director of Marvel’s Avengers ) created a TV show that tried to do something different. A western themed space adventure called Firefly, it followed the exploits of a crew of misfits led by a broken war veteran . It had a great story, an amazing cast who truly clicked and spectacular visual effects. Above all of this and most importantly it had ambition and was crafted with love. So of course, it had to be destroyed.
Altered Carbon is Netflix’s new sci-fi series premiering on February 2nd (This Friday!). Based on a Richard K Morgan book which it shares it’s name, it looks to be about a dystopian looking future in which peoples memories and personality’s, can be stored and transferred into new bodies.
Sounds ominous, what could possibly go wrong? Trailer below.
During the recording of our debut podcast episode I mentioned that my favourite game of all time was the original Deus Ex. Alex misheard me and thought I was talking about a game called Day of Sex. It might exist, it might not. One thing is for sure, I’m not going to Google it. I’ve received a fair number of questions regarding Deus Ex (and Day of Sex) and what it’s about, so read on and I’ll bloody tell you.
Around 22 years ago, in a small barber shop in Edinburgh, you could just make out Oasis’s new single Wonderwall playing through echoes of loud, hysterical laughter. The laughter was aimed at a 10-year-old me and was coming from my Dad and the hairdresser who I’d just asked to make me look like Fox Mulder.
