Hey there, been a while since I was here. Good to see the same old faces :)

Well, over the last few months my friend and I have been spending our weekend evenings sipping the occasional cider and watching a youtube series of a 90s TV series called "Bad Influence". Basically a computer games review show, aired on ITV from September 1992 to January 1995. Interesting what games they actually review. Frontier Elite II gets a mention but nothing else, no mention of X-Com at all, but despite being a "kids show" Doom, Mortal Kombat etc are prevailent, as is Command and Conquer.

Anyhoops, the penultimate episode, Christmas 1995, they show a brief and exceptionally blurry clip of Transport Tycoon Deluxe. The original never got a mention it seems, but TTD did. Only a fleeting mention I know but I know there are many forum goers around my age who will remember this show and I thought you might like to big up a bit of 90s nostalgia as I have :)

Yeah they dragged her in in the final series. The death knell really. Never really liked her, preferred Violet immensely. Not sure why they made Violet a "field reporter" and kept kicking her out to Japan and the colonies. Maybe she volunteered to go but, always seemed like a demotion to me.
