This fortnight, Nick and Alastair return to the Netflix well with Project Power and Transformers: War for Cybertron.
But first, in the face of a confusing world, Nick returns to the comforting world of scifi sarcasm on TV with Killjoys, while Alastair continues his delve into the Netflix foreign language library with Trotsky.
At last, they must sit down and watch Project Power (13:26), a new Netflix superhero/cop hybrid engineered by Netflix, with the help of Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and beards.
Finally, even further from reality, it’s Transformers: War For Cybertron: Chapter One: Siege (29:50), a new anime series about the robots in disguise, staring almost as many different transforming machines as there are letters in that incredibly long title.
And, as mentioned a couple of times in this episode, Nick’s new comic And It Snowed is up on Kickstarter, an urban fantasy crime comic featuring lovely wintery cityscapes by Robert Ahmad and letters by DC Hopkins. If you fancy it (and also wanted to pick up any of his old comics, they’re all there too), he’d hugely appreciate it if you headed over here and checked it out.
