Synopsis:

default

The crew welcomes a visit from our favourite English farmer (Gem) as they discuss the recently announced iPad, and all the jokes that come with it.  Also, Marcel brings our attention to Electronic Arts’s new Dante’s Inferno, based on Dante’s classic of the same name.  Is having a half-naked monk killing monsters in the depths of hell a brilliant idea?  Also, Terry Pratchett and euthanasia, and find out what the Odyssey has in common with scantily-clad berries.
