BBC Three's Murdered For Being Different: review

26 June 2017 1:23 AM, PDT

Caroline Preece Jun 26, 2017

The latest in BBC Three's 'Murdered By' series is a powerful look at the devastation caused by intolerance...

We exist in a time when pointless, devastating violence is an all-too common occurrence, whether it’s knife crime amongst teenagers, terrorism or people simply letting their opposing views turn into physical conflicts. We’re as divided as ever, and the lines we draw between ourselves and the people we encounter everyday are ever-more arbitrary despite the heavy cost.

Murdered for Being Different, then, is exactly the kind of thing BBC Three should be making. Following previous instalments Murdered By My Boyfriend and Murdered By My Father, it takes a real-world event and with it attempts to make a wider statement. »

Rumour: Snes Classic Mini in the works

26 June 2017 12:51 AM, PDT

If the reports from anonymous Gamestop store managers are accurate, a Super Nintendo Classic Mini could be out by Christmas...

The Nes Classic Mini was an ingenious marketing idea - a dinky, plug and play version of Nintendo's beloved 80s console - but it'll probably be remembered by history for one thing: its horrendous scarcity.

One of Christmas 2016's must-have gifts, the Nes Mini sold out within days, prices for the devices on eBay soared to eye-watering levels, and for most of us, the prospect of ever owning one soon faded. (Fun fact: ours got lost in the post.)

Nintendo has since discontinued the Nes Mini, possibly because the firm wanted to make way for its Wii U successor, the Switch, which came out in the spring. All the same, one question has persisted: will Nintendo make a Snes Classic Mini - a similarly tiny version of its 16-bit console, »

2.1 On The Road

God is missing, and Jesse Custer knows it. Now it's up to a lapsed preacher, a criminal, and a drug-addled vampire to track Him down and hold Him accountable for His disappearance. If there's some need for assistance, then maybe Jesse and company will be able to provide it. If God has simply abandoned His creation, then Jesse has sworn to hold Him accountable for the disappearing act. It's a bold claim, and it's going to shape up to be a long, strange journey across the American south.

I have to give a lot of credit to Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. »

We must’ve done something to displease David Lynch, for now we are being punished. Has one of you been watching the series on your iPhone or something? Episode 7 was bordering on coherency and, frankly, that was Lynch being a bit too generous. “Now, survive this!” screams Part 7 at us long-suffering Twin Peaks fans.

We got to see a little bit of what’s going on with Evil Cooper, who gets double-crossed, shot, and then has his insides torn open by a bunch of painted vagrants so that he can »

3.5 Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame

Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame is a very busy episode, intercutting between four storylines. Each story is replete with its own odd character pairings, of which first and foremost is Daniel and Strand. These are two people who shouldn’t be in a car together, much less road-tripping their way through Mexico’s apocalyptic wasteland. Theirs is the least effective pairing, if only because Strand is just so unlikable. Remember when Strand was the very definition of cool in season one, a mellifluous patter wrapped in an expensive suit? His fall from »
