Thanks gents - I enjoyed your discussion on room correction and treatments. Aspects which are frequently overlooked when setting up a system. Looking forward to the LG special coming up.

Thanks guys for the tribute to Yaphet Kotto. After I heard the news I tracked down another old podcast episode I remembered listening in 2015 that covered his movies and now I need to dedicate some time and watch those.

One of the interesting things they said actually explained one of Steve’s bugbears with one of the new Alien Prequels... namely the scene where the Scientists completely ignore all their training and common sense as a result of being offered extra money, that seems to be a sloppy callback to when Yaphet Kotto and Harry Dean Stanton being blue collar and wanting to be paid for what they do, with most of their conversations early on in the movie is about their bonuses ... so in the recent movie the screenwriters just went with cash as the motivation again.
(Same podcast even did an episode on his “Eye of the Tiger” a few weeks ago).

Now that the Oscar nominations are out I am reminded I still need to see “Da 5 Bloods” as I heard Delroy Lindo was amazing in it and it was one of Chadwick Baseman’s last movies too.

Thanks guys, great podcast. I've got CX and it already had ITVplayer since February. Does the BX miss this? Why would LG put it on the C and not the B?
