Thank you so much for doing this! I just remembered this thread yesterday, so happy to find it here.

I want to know if Dan has started watching Man in the High Castle. It seems his sort of thing. Might try and ask him next time he does a liveshow since he usually always seems to answer my premiums for some weird reason lol.

tv shows:
Arthur (animated pictures series for children on CBBC) Dan loved it when he was a kid. "I blame Arthur for making me a furry"
Raven (children's adventure game - think Takeshi's castle for children). Dan loved it, wanted to participate badly, had a crush on the host.
Phil was obsessed with Big Brother UK (reality show) at one point. He seems to like his trashy tv, but has a level of trash he doesn't go beyond (from his liveshow).
Dan: Bake off crème de la crème. (basically great british bake off but for pro bakers), he had an orgasm describing the pastries, wants to try them all

Batman vs Superman. Both said it was so-so, beginning good, ending disappointing. they wanted to whack in too many stuff. Dan still gave it 3/5. "If you're a nerd go watch it, you'll have fun".

Hello! I’m new and kinda late to this thread, I just moved here from the GG forum.

They seem to be reading a lot of books as well. I was wondering if you guys also have a list of Dan and Phil’s book recommendations (or just books they’ve read that you guys know of)? The only thing I know is that the Millennium Trilogy is Dan’s favourite and Phil is a fan of Stephen King’s works.
