22512 What are you watching?
We've got a what are you listening to and what are you playing thread, so what are you lads watching?

I've just watched Starship Troopers, not realising it was directed by the same fella that directed RoboCop, and thought that the 'in-universe TV' scenes were uncannily familiar.

Quite enjoyed it though, though I think they could have done with a bit more subversion and a bit less cheese.

But the cheese is part of the subversion.

I don't think anyone has seen the sequels to Starship Troopers, including the people who made them.

Avoid, they completely miss the point.

This. You have to frame it in the context that the cheese is ripping on the teen dramas of the 90s like save by the bell and Beverly Hills, 90210, and to juxtapose that all of the adults are horrifically maimed and the society lacks any kind of empathy. It is a deliberate directorial decision.

I still think it's a shame that Denise Richards refused to do a topless scene.

There's only one sequel except they numbered it Starship Troopers 3 for some reason.
It's not as good as the first but it's still enjoyable. The focus is slightly different as it's more about religion and entertainment as a medium of control rather than the original purer fascism. You can see this as it missing the point or see it as just trying to do something fresh and more up to date than the original.

There are two threads of two sequels each. There are two film sequels, and two animated sequels that disregard the films (understandable given that by almost unanimous agreement ST2 was shit).

I'm working my way through There She Goes on iPlayer. It's created by Shaun Pye, one of the co-creators of Money Dust, and is based on his experiences of raising a daughter with severe learning difficulties. It's good, but not great.
