Despite the universe conspiring to prevent us releasing this week, we've finally got this episode done. Things will be a bit hectic for a few weeks while we sort out moving, but we'll be back to our usual schedule soon.

The Powerpuff Girls, created from sugar, spice and everything nice, were nearly rebooted into a weird dark alternative universe where the Powerpuff girls gain some additional bitterness and relationship issues. It's pretty bad, and the leaked script has gotten the entire concept dumped for a rewrite.

The Xbox Series (Dumb name) has joined the PS4 as another example of restrictive DRM that will inevitably lead to more ewaste and cultural loss. Yep. Professor's mad again. Console developers lock games to their specific hardware then make sure that you can only play it as long as they'll let you.

Invasive crazy ants are killing all the famous Christmas Island crabs. Scientists are fighting back with micro wasps. Kinda the opposite of what we all thought science would do in 50s B movies.

This week DJ watched the new DOTA anime (apparently it's really good) and Professor watched Edge of Tomorrow (also really good).
