This fortnight, Nick and Alastair meet a pair of action heroes who are both having their hearts melted by cute kids in Star Wars: The Mandalorian and Extraction. If only they’d planned this thematic cohesion.
But first, the introductory lockdown culture update section takes in Alastair’s latest Mission Impossible update and review of the new Altered Carbon season, plus Nick finally watching Westworld season 3.
And then, way after America thanks to Disney Plus’s annoying British release schedule, they finally head out on the plain with The Mandalorian (10:40), and for once they’ve even held back on the spoilers.
Lastly, they go way old school with new Netflix one-man-army action orgy Extraction (24:15), in which Chris Hemsworth murders hundreds, but still gets emotional about a child.
