Ended up picking one up in the 2022 batch, as I'm very interested to see what folks build for the device.

As with most of the non-US folks, I had the frustrating experience of seeing the 502 nginx error as the preorders went live (meaning I was there as early as I could have possibly been), had a Playdate and case in my cart within 60 seconds of the shop going live (for the 2021 batch), then spent the next half hour watching as orders outside the US were told they couldn't be delivered, so couldn't be checked out. The 2021 batch sold out.

Playdate/Panic have explained that their partner for international shipping had issues with the traffic on their end, which I get, and are looking at their "options". Not expecting them to be able to do anything - it is what it is. I'm super disappointed that I'll be missing out on the initial "discourse" as everyone discovers their weekly games together, but this is still something I want to check out.

+1 for the Apple TV recommendation. It is expensive compared to other streaming boxes, but the ease of use and quality of the app makes it worth it to me.

Otherwise, can you not achieve what you were doing with your old TV by buying a Chromecast stick/box/dingus and plugging that into your new TV?

I enjoyed it - perhaps more as a novelty and experiment than a movie that I'd want to watch in a cinema. While it doesn't rate against the majority of recent Marvel movies, it is a much more cohesive product than the theatrical version.

There are things I could point to that I preferred in the theatrical cut, and vice versa. There are things that could have been dropped entirely. For an evening's entertainment, you could do much worse.

The crew has lost the GOAT voicemail operator. Production is going to be far too professional from here on out!

All the best for the future, Ben! 3AM Boys Never Die. 🥲

I understand the reasoning behind prioritising the podcast, and am happy that the Beasts aren't away from their homes and families for as long this year.

That said, the daily group videos were always the highlight of GB holiday content for me. Sad to see less of them this year, as I don't generally listen to the GOTY podcasts.

Still, appreciate the effort by everyone, and hoping the crew is having a great, well-deserved break!

Times seem correct for me on the homepage, but the ordering of upcoming live shows in the Live dropdown are reversed/out of order.

The homepage shows Die Another Friday 002 before Unprofessional Fridays tomorrow (correctly), but the dropdown shows Unprofessional Fridays above Die Another Friday 002 (although the times are correct).

The current Upcoming box on the landing screen reads:

Quick Look: Black Bird (Today, 2:00PM PST)

Breakfast 'N' Ben - 11/07/2018 (Today, 1:30AM PST)

Quick Look: The Shapeshifting Detective (Tomorrow, 2:00PM PST)

Unprofessional Fridays: 11/09/2018 (Tomorrow, 7:00AM PST)

The first two items don't appear to be in chronological order, but is this just a remnant of the timezones being tied to the today/tomorrow labelling?

Edit: Forgot to mention, I'm in the UK, so currently on GMT (8 hours ahead of PST).

I've been unable to load videos on Edge on Xbox One since Wednesday/Thursday, and the site won't keep me logged in either. I think the issues started when the membership sale went live (and the page headers changed).

Using the unofficial video player app on Xbox One is working fine, for the time being.
