It’s easier to understand than Season 2, has a couple of new characters, lots of eye-candy and a cautionary sci-fi tale to tell. But is it any good?

There’s no ‘midpoint’ movie roundup this month because I haven’t seen that many so far. Instead I’ve been spending my time watching TV shows, doing jigsaws and listening to the audio version of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.

Humpty Dumpty in Oakland is another one of Philip K Dick’s non-science fiction books. It was written in 1960, but not published until 1986, posthumously.
The Crack in Space is not one of Dick’s best books, despite it being written in a very productive period of time (1963-64). However, it does contain numerous interesting ideas, not least of which is America’s first black president.
