all those years of "write once, run anywhere" bullshit and here we are with seven different installations of java from 1.5 to 1.8 just to run a web application and a database.

it was getting a bit repetitive - go abroad somewhere with 3 knackered cars, try to cross a river/desert, end up doing roadside fixes, one presenter gets left behind, bang into each other a bit, blah blah.

very formulaic, like ramsey's hotel hell or even the a-team.

Don't get me started on movies made entirely to sell toys and themepark rides like Transformers and fucking Frozen.
