#Tesco Click and collect #Fail

So… We’re in local lockdown again due to the mismanagement of the country by the government. Everyone is using click and collect, or delivery – it should be a well oiled machine now – well #Tesco managed to fuck this all up royally. This is my recent experience, and my opinion:

Turn up for a two hour slot, I was a few minutes early.… Continue Reading

Spabbit’s Sci-Fi Shows, ranked.

Continuing the series of articles for ranked TV, comes the Sci-Fi Shows, ranked. This covers what are, strictly in my opinion, the best Sci-Fi shows I've personally seen. I'm no professional critic, I just like what I like - Just take a show for what it is, with its limits, and just bloody well enjoy it :). The list has been reduced down to the top 24 for a mention, out of the 160 which started!

24: Rick & Morty - Pickle-Rick! This is last on my list, but definitely not least, the reason it's in last place is because it's animated. But don't let that distract you from this oasis of awesome in the desert of shit. Go have some rum, and put your feet up for a few great hours of entertainment. 3 Seasons in and another 70 episodes have been ordered... Fuck YES! [imdb [imdb style="gray"]tt2861424[/imdb]
Hopefully, if you're looking for something different to watch in the Sci-Fi genre, this article will give you some ideas! … Continue Reading

Spabbit’s Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies!

This post covers my picks for the top Sci-Fi movies, starting with my Top 10!

In the list I talk about the ideas at the heart of the movies. Good Science Fiction always has a simple idea at the core, but one which is left to almost naturally develop into a narrative which will make you sit up and think “WTF did I just watch”.… Continue Reading

Top 10 Movies

Right… Getting to grips with a long list of posts I’ve been meaning to make for a while now! I begin with the top 10 General Movies – my personal favourites of all time, so far. The list isn’t static, but this is what I’ve boiled down at the moment! The full list does cover the top 49 I’m sure there will be more, but the old grey cells aren’t that good these days!)Continue Reading

Review: Beaum Vape

imageOne word: AWESOME.

It’s not often that I’m inspired to go out and write a positive review for a retail store, however in this case, I’m not only inspired but actually compelled to do so. I’m new to vaping, this is only my fourth week in to my vaping journey, and a week ago, thanks to Beaum Vape, it changed massively for the better.… Continue Reading

TalkTalk: The Fibre Saga

TTFOfferWell… We recently decided to believe the advertising (Silly, I know), and upgrade our TalkTalk Broadband package to include the new ‘Fibre’ package, which claims to be 5x faster than the standard ADSL2 which we had.

Well… Fibre isn’t fibre, in this case it’s VDSL2, and whist there may be a fibre somewhere along the route, probably to a green box at the end of the street, there is no fibre to our house.… Continue Reading

IKEA, a piss poor experience – no fucks given…

IKEAIKEA… It’s like Marmite, either love it or hate it, there is no middle of the road here – but either way IKEA is a necessary evil of the world, like Argos, and sometimes there’s no other way.

We’ve used IKEA (The Cardiff Store) many times over the years, and had varying degrees of service from the staff, but this latest visit has been the worst yet, and I sincerely hope that IKEA will not be a part of my future for as long as I can foresee.… Continue Reading

Movie Review: The Goonies

The Goonies - PosterThis review covers off The Goonies, from good old 1985, the year when everything was just shiny for my very much younger self. I know this movie has been reviewed thousands and thousands of times, but it is in my favourite movie collection, and still a movie I find enjoyable right into my 40s!… Continue Reading

Movie Review: The Ambushers (1967)

ambushersThis time around, I’m reviewing The Ambushers from 1967… Now (Not giving away too much), I wasn’t even a twinkle in my father’s eye when this was made, however in around 1984, when I was just an ahem-early-tean, this became one of my favourite movies. Many years after that, I’d lost the video copy I’d hoarded over the years, and had to import the movie on DVD from the USA.… Continue Reading

Movie Review – A Dog’s Breakfast

A Dogs Breakfast1This is the first in a series of movies reviews here @Spabbit. I’ll be going through my favourite movie collection over the next few weeks. At the top of the list, alphabetically, is A Dog’s Breakfast.

It was been written, directed by and stars David Hewlett. I first encountered David Hewlett in Stargate SG1, and later on Stargate Atlantis – he played the very annoying Rodney McKay, who’s principle occupation was being a genius level dork amongst the stars.… Continue Reading
