It’s a lovely morning in the village, and you are a horrible goose.
Yep, you read that right, in Untitled Goose Game you play as a goose who goes around and antagonises a village full of people. The controls are literally, walk, run, duck, grab, honk, and flap your wings. It is literally the funnest game I have played all year.

About: Put simply Monty Python’s Flying Circus is a sketch comedy show from the 60s. However when you look a little bit closer you see that the show was a revolution for absurdist humour, launched a number of careers, and had a lasting affect on humour which reaches into shows and movies of today.
Why: While I devoured the show during my childhood, my partner has only ever seen The Life of Brain and The Holy Grail. I feel like this is a huge oversight on his part and since Netflix has made the show available (in such a better quality than the VHS I watched the show on) we have been making our way through the 45 episodes.
About: Escape to the Country is a BBC produced reality TV show like no other! Well okay, it is very similar to lots of other reality realty shows that are currently available to watch but unlike those other shows, Escape to the Country features the British countryside!
The basic premise of the show is that two people (usually a newly retired married couple who have sold their city homes for a stack of cash) are shown three houses in an area of the British countryside where they are interested in moving. Two of the houses fit the couples ideals, with a third ‘mystery’ house pushing the comfort zone of the pair.

A sweet, kick-started, gender fluid, cat themed, dating sim that will melt your heart.

About:It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphiais an American television show that follows the lives and misadventures of terrible five people as they run a bar and, put simply, are horrible to each other. The draw card of this show is the truly awkward and cringe worthy moments that litter the show. With episode titles such as ‘Frank Sets Sweet Dee on Fire,’ ‘Who pooped the bed?’ and ‘The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby,’ the show seems to tackle every taboo, off colour, uncomfortable topic and just run with it.
