    Fallout

    Are you all enjoying Fallout?

    When this series was first announced I wasn't sure what to expect. Films and TV series based on video games have not generally been that great. The exception being The Last of Us.

    But Fallout thankfully bucks this trend and really captures the feel of the games perfectly. The tech, the vaults, the wasteland. All great. And the actors and scripts are just a good. The best really has to be the Ghoul.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    At episode 6 at the moment, I think it's fine, well done indeed, besides the CGI bear, I thought that was atrocious. Some unnecessary stuff too, like trying to be gruesome when there's no need to show at all, or just cut it shorter.

    Walton Goggins is of course fantastic, first series I saw him was in Justified, plays the baddies really well

    Ohhh, I did wonder why my FB feed was showing a number of memes about bears.

    This is an excellent point, skilled film-making or story telling leave the imagination to fill in those bits. I don't mind a bit of gore, but when it becomes just gratuitous it feels silly and even perhaps lame.

    I didn't notice too much gore. I probably thought there wasn't enough!

    Maybe they could have a Gore On/Off option for softies?

    Yes indeed. Cracking smile when he lets one go!


    So I'm now 6 episodes in & could take it or leave it tbh....

    I dare say I'll keep watching it.... if only just for the gore & cheese factor which it spews quite monumentally.
