Jammies are not death clothes (QR 083)

May 21, 2024

Sometimes you drive out into the dark, beyond the city lights, and wonder whether your loved one’s intentions are nefarious. Other times you see the northern lights!

This week, a very relieved Kris shares stories of lights in the sky, the benefits of not being murdered, and what it’s like to swim with penguins. And Tara’s here too, more laid back after emerging from a gaming fugue state, with another banger recommendation.

Official Recommendations

From Kris: Mary & George (Sky/Starz)

This week, Kris recommends the British historical drama Mary & George, which tells the story of a man, his mother, and the King of England they’re intent on seducing. Kris particularly liked this one because of the lengths the characters go to get what they want.

From Tara: I Was A Teenage Exocolonist (PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Steam)

This week, Tara recommends I Was A Teenage Exocolonist by Northway Games. In this deckbuilding life sim game, you play a settler going through a wormhole to a brand-new world. The story is looped, with the player returning to their arrival point over and over, trying to set right what went wrong in previous loops. It’s queer AF and was the subject of much delight in Tara’s home.
