With the huge amount of content out there in the world at the moment, it can sometimes be daunting to choose a movie or TV show to enjoy from your giant Netflix queues and DVR boxes full to the brim with stuff you don't know if you can trust not to be a heap of muck. Maybe you only have one chance at a 2 hour chunk of time to watch a film this week. Or you want to get into spending a good few hours with a new TV show or computer game, but you aren't sure if you are making the right choice and you dont want to waste your time! Why Press Play dig up the gems from the world of moving pictures and discuss them and their merits, or lack thereof! We will watch that 5th Season of that show you thought about watching that one time. We will watch that rare movie that your friend insisted you have to watch ironically. We will play that game and give you the heads up on what to expect should you decide to invest all that time in it! So join us and the people who brought you Those Conspiracy Guys, for a journey into obscure pop culture, retro TV shows, the good and bad of the big screen and the small, and all the button bashing you can take.
