Afternoon folks, how are we all doing? Good, I hope.

Whether you are self-isolating, taking a break from things, or you simply stumbled on this post by accident, welcome one and all. It’s a strange time at present, but it won’t last forever.

For those who joined me yesterday, I am sad to report that I have not progressed with Mario Kart, but I hope to rectify that today. I have a red shell with Princess Peach’s name on it, so watch this space.

Right, let’s crack on with the fifth edition of ‘Something to read when you’re bored’.

If you’re a fan of the Arrowverse then I have some good news – Batwoman is finally coming to UK TV screens! E4 will broadcast the first season from Sunday March 29th at 9pm.

News

Some more good news, if you are a Sky customer. Sky is bringing a number of new releases to the Sky Store, including Emma., The Invisible Man, and The Hunt. These films have only just appeared in cinemas, so this is great news if you didn’t get chance to catch them.

In addition, on 6th April, Trolls World Tour will also be available on the Sky Store. In light of the current situation, this film is skipping cinemas entirely, so it could be one to watch with the family – a little home-cinema treat.

A review for you

The first of these films is Sonic the Hedgehog. This film arrived on Valentine’s Day with A LOT of baggage, but was it any good?

What if?

Let’s play a game of ‘what if?’

What if the Batman Anthology (1989 – 1997) had continued with a fifth film – what would have happened? Well, it did almost happen, and you can read all about it on I’ll Get Drive-Thru.

Just click on the link: What if Batman: Unchained? to find out what could have happened after Batman & Robin.

Something to note: If you find yourself with a bit of free-time right now, maybe today is the day to do some spring cleaning. Not only does spring cleaning lead to a good bit of exercise (which is great for health and well-being) but it also makes your living environment more fun – and who doesn’t want that?

Take a break from the news, stick the vacuum around, dust the TV, sort out the cupboard that REALLY NEEDS SORTING OUT – whatever needs doing, do it today. You have the time.
