Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

Not necessarily. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

Here's something you probably didn't expect heading into the long weekend: Friday evening, People published a report that Patrick Warburton will return to "The Tick," in a revival set to air on Amazon's streaming video service.

According to People's unnamed source, Warburton "recently inked a deal with Amazon and Sony" to reprise the role, with "Tick" creator Ben Edlund on board to produce and write. Multiple outlets have picked up on this story online, all sourcing back to the People report and many expressing skepticism given the unlikely nature of the claim. Warburton's 12-years-later return to "The Tick" has yet to be confirmed or denied by Amazon or Sony -- or by Warburton or Edlund themselves.

Warburton played "The Tick" on the Fox live-action series based on the character, which ran for nine episodes in the 2001-2002 season. The live-action "Tick" followed the beloved Fox Kids cartoon that ran from 1994 to 1996, and the "Tick" comic book series the kicked off the franchise in 1988.

"The Tick" was not a hit on Fox, but received positive reviews for its humorous take on superhero life. Along with Warburton as The Tick, the show also starred David Burke as Arthur, Liz Vassey as Captain Liberty and Nestor Carbonell -- who later appeared in both "Lost" and "The Dark Knight" -- as Batmanuel. "Men in Black" director Barry Sonnenfeld and "Seinfeld" writer Larry Charles served as executive producers, with Sonnenfeld directing the pilot.

In 2009, Warburton discussed the possibility of returning to the role in an interview with CBR News.

"I'm sure the character will definitely be coming back," Warburton said. "I don’t know if I'll be the lucky guy, but I'd love to be the guy. I wish Barry'd make the movie right now, you know? And let me do it. But if they ever make 'The Tick' movie, who knows who will get to play The Tick? But it probably ain’t going to get to be me, that’s the reality."

At press time, neither Warburton or Edlund have publicly acknowledged the report, but writer Benito Cereno -- who has authored much of New England Comics' recent "Tick" comic book material -- shared the article on his Tumblr, along with a simple "Hmmmmmmm."

Keeping reading CBR for the latest.

 

This is great news as he was always the perfect casting for The Tick. Now give him some villains to deal with and this show will be truly astounding.

Yeah, I think part of what killed the orginal LA series was the lack of any villains or super-heroics. Even a little could probably help this.

Could be fun in an "off the clock" thing, sorta like the Looney Tunes with Sam the Sheep Dog and Wily Coyote getting along after they clock out.

I'd rather have a return of the animated Tick, but I think the live-action series was underrated and too-quickly dismissed by fans of the cartoon.  While the cartoon was largely about heroes fighting villains, the live-action show focussed on the day-to-day lives of the heroes.  They're different, but both are very good and funny.

If it happens I hope they get the rest of the cast to come back, too, not just Warburton.

Oh, my gosh.  It's been 12 years?

 

I liked the show for what it is.  I crave more of the cartoon more than I crave more of the live action show.  But they were really intentional about not having the villains because it was supposed to be like Seinfeld.  They are superheroes living the superhero lifestyle.  Fighting evil is just what they do some of the time.  I enjoyed that.  I think it would look goofy really quickly if they started having a lot of fight scenes.  That stuff plays a lot better on a cartoon or more serious live-action.

 

I'll be watching, of course.

Egads that's keen. Its been a bit since I've seen the series but I recall there being at least one villain, even if he is not battled directly.

I agree with everyone about the need of supervillains.  Compared to the cartoon, the live action series was more like a situation comedy.

Amazing show which was WAY before its time. I'd think it'd be a hit now.

In my head-canon, the live action TICK and Dr Horrible are in the same universe.
