  1. Okay that is entirely the reason I bought AC: Valhalla, but when I was quarantining for two weeks, it was still super buggy and lost like five hours of play after I’d gotten a boat cat and I’ve been too sad to go back.

  2. I freaking loved ‘Gentleman Jack’ but still surprised it’s getting another series and a full eight episodes at that, very excited. Crazy to think it’s gonna be three years since the first season.

  3. So glad they finally (almost three years later!) announced that “Gentleman Jack” season two will air this spring, but kinda disappointed they didn’t set an exact date.

    I need a countdown right now to have something to look forward in this hellhole that is this depressive fog of winter.

  4. Has anyone seen the new HBO film The Fallout? I’m extremely Not A Teen anymore and Gen Z confuses me a lot, so I had low expectations, but it’s actually good and lets its protagonist be casually and unapologetically bisexual! Also: Jenna Ortega is a star.
