What are we watching, reading, playing: Julia thoroughly enjoyed the renowned La La Land fiasco at the Oscars, describing the end as “the best minute of my life”, she’s also sunk her teeth into what she refers to as a “girly series”, Big Little Lies, while giving The Girl on the Train a quick read through.

On the gaming side of things, the lucky guy got his press copy of Horizon Zero Dawn so stay on the lookout for his review.
Graham found himself in an anime binge, getting through popular old-school anime Macross. He’s also currently playing the critically acclaimed Bully and Skyrim.
Our host Hadlee, received his review copy of Halo Wars 2 and rewatching the ever awesome series, Rick and Morty as well as the eclectic Eric Andre Show.
