    Wasn't his car based on a Lamborghini Countach LP400? :D Street Hawk was probably my fav though... Who wouldn't want a motorbike that had machine guns, missiles and could do 90 degree turns at 300mph while in Hyperthrust? :D

    I can't believe he died - if you remember Manimal, then we are old :(

    I was totally engaged by it all the way through. I really enjoyed every moment of it.
    I am often bored by fight scenes in things, but not by The Mandalorian.
    I saw the original Star Wars when it was new, and part of my fundamental psyche is formed by it. I experience Star Wars material in a different way to anything else (I like ALL the films).

    Oh, and I can ride a bike very well, but I've never been on a horse.

    Some of the combat was pretty decent I thought. :)

    Enjoyed it. The last few episodes were banging. Its not out right amazing but it has the potential to become it,it is though the best thing to happen to the IP for what feels like forever.

    CGI is a bit inconsistent. And I hope next season they give him some kind of permanent team to work with as hes kind of a bit boring on his own.

    That tie fighter landing scene was next level !

    I enjoyed it. They seemed to keep it basic without tarting it up. Unlike most of the films of the last 30 years.

    Heard that announced too. Falcon and the Winter Soldier in a August and Wandavision October too.

    Also heard a wee secret about Disney+ earlier this week as well but can’t say anything!

    It's hardly a secret :D

    Really looking forward to Winter Soldier and S2 of the Mandalroian!

    Is the secret meant to be that it’s launching in the UK a week early? 24th March?

    D+ is all about the back catalogue at the moment (hence the price) but all these new shows are very interesting.

    The rumoured Sky Q integration, like Netflix is now I assume, I didn't think it was much of a secret!

    Wonder if it will be cheaper than going direct to disney.

    My main gripe about sky integration, is that the mini boxes are only 1080p so no 4k HDR stuff
