Screentime - Double Feature of Suicide Squad & Stranger Things

This week we did a Screentime two-parter. First Adam and Ian review and discuss Suicide Squad, the latest DC cinematic universe film from David Ayer and Warner Brothers. We go through what we thought of the film, what we didn't like and try desperately to think of something we did like about it. We do go fairly spoiler heavy, so if you care about having the film spoiled then skip from 18:20-44:15.

In the second part we were joined by our pal Kirsty Flower, who plays Dariah on our D&D podcast Total Reroll, and the three of us chatted about Stranger Things. We mainly did this because we knew we were going to be very negative about Suicide Squad, and wanted to talk about something much more positive! We went into what we liked about the show and try desperately to think of something we didn't like. We don't go nearly as far into spoiler territory for this part, but there are minor spoilers so if you haven't watched it yet (and you should) then skip from 44:15-61:43.

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, and welcome to our first episode with our new co-host Ian Green. Ian is the DM on our D&D podcast, and after 67 episodes of dealing with Skype problems he is stepping in to join Adam in an all-London podcast, so expect sirens. We'll be keeping some stuff the same, changing or rebranding others, and maybe introducing some new features over the next couple of episodes. We hope you enjoy it!

Screentime - Our tentative title for film and TV reviews and discussion

For the first instalment of Screentime (please, if you can think of a better title let us know!) we are reviewing and discussing Star Trek: Beyond, the 3rd instalment of the rebooted Star Trek movie universe. We go fairly spoiler heavy, so if you haven't seen it yet and don't want parts of the plot spoiled for you then skip from 43:34-67:10. We go into what we thought of the film, and what worked and didn't work (or who didn't work) for us.
Now Playing - Our catchup for what media we have been consuming, the title of which we came up with after recording. We'll be chatting about what we are reading, watching and playing right now!

Adam - Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse, Stranger Things on Netflix and Uncharted 4 on PS4
Ian - Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf by R.A. Salvatore, Mass Effect 3 on Xbox 360 and he isn't watching anything right now.
