To be honest they did ignore big chunks of the stuff from the movie. Also never had the balls to portray Jesus as a rogue Goa'uld (yeah yeah I know shut up).

@  Echowarrior : (20 March 2019 - 08:57 PM)

The original Stargate movie was okay for what it was. SG1 was a decent show that probably lasted too long. Atlantis was a decent show that could've lasted a little longer. Universe...gah. There were exactly two characters on that show that I liked, and neither was enough to help it in my mind.

@  Xellos : (20 March 2019 - 04:05 PM)

I got into SG1 right as season 8 ended. The Stargates were the last shows that I would make sure to watch every week. Since Universe ended, I really have not been addicted to any live action series.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 03:12 PM)

The concept of the film had enormous potential, and the rest was literally writers one upping each other when they didn't know if they were going to get renewed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 March 2019 - 02:40 PM)

Haven't got as far as Universe yet, but I finished SG-1 on Prime last week and I'm part of the way through Atlantis, now. Amazing how long it went on, just based off a single film

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 March 2019 - 02:36 PM)

Teal'c PI never happened but Teengate did.

@  Cybersnark : (20 March 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Indeed.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Yeah, SG1 is fairly and uniformely good throught out it's entire run. Atlantis isn't quite as good, but has quite a few good episodes, and universe wasn't a bad take on the more dramatic and outlandish aspects of the universe.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 March 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Man, I should've watched the Stargate TV shows years ago; they're a lot better than I ever expected

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Well, if the merchant benefited from it there's no harm, I guess. Some people just aren't comfortable dealing with foreign currencies; although admittedly those usually aren't the types who'll go to a place like Estonia.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:51 PM)

I gather this was an ad hoc sale with no machine around. Or the U.S.-Americans in this story were so entitled they didn't bother getting any euros for their trip. One hears about the latter phenomenon often enough.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Easier to just use a credit card with no foreign currency conversion fee. There are plenty to choose from in the US

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Joke's on them because the USD-EUR exchange rate gave him a lot more.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:39 PM)

Just read an anecdote on Facebook from an Estonian guy who once accepted U.S. dollars on par from some 'Mericans who didn't change their currency when traveling to another country.

I'd say the first volume is the most Meh Transformers comic I've ever read. Reading it I felt like I was skipping a bunch of pages.

Even in the general population there are those who share his views. Probably a significant crossover with the ones who blame Muslims for what happened.

While I have no ties to Ireland, South or North, I have been reassured by many Irish people of the proper rendition.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:54 PM)

Paddy is the diminutive of Pádraig. Patty belongs on a burger.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:53 PM)

PSA to all: the abbreviated name is Paddy's Day or Saint Paddy's Day.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:42 PM)

Another round of U.S.-Americans throwing around Disneyfied Irish symbolism for the sake of getting smashed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:41 PM)

Hooray, it is Lá Fhéile Pádraig / Saint Patrick's Day once again.

Why not split the difference and get the other Olsen, or is she too busy being an Avenger?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Nope, looks like Deej and Steve broke up after she graduated but will bring him back for some effect. Wondering if it'll be one sided or not. While I do appreciate the callbacks to the catchphrases, I really hope it's not a constant thing.

But damn Stephanie got hot.

Also, after seeing the sequels to Boy Meets World, Full House, 90210, and Melrose Place...

I am jonesing so hard for a sequel to Family Matters!

I wanna see Laura's and Urkel's kids! A nerdy genius girl and a normal, smart-aleck boy. Eddie can be a single cop in the Aunt Rachel role. Maybe his wife was also a cop who died in the line of duty.

Waldo and Maxine's kid could be the annoying next-door neighbor!

Waldo can be head chef at an updated version of Rachel's Place where the kids hang out.

Don't even change the name. Just make it a new season of the same show after a VERY long hiatus.

Shame Fuller House got panned by critics. If I have to guess, they are probably not Full House fans, since this series is mainly aimed at them.

 

But seeing how this is the same plot with reversed genders, and DJ's husband dying in a different way (will not spoil for those who have yet to watch), it makes me wonder if the Tanner family is actually cursed to this fate.

We watched about half of it tonight. Kimmy actually had a nice dramatic moment with very believable emotion. It was pretty nice how they set up a reverse dynamic with the main character and her sister and best friend (just like Danny and brother-in-law and best friend) with original characters and then boy kids instead of girls. And the kids are pretty good, if a 90s sitcom were something I was interesting in watching nowadays.

But I don't think I'll be clamoring for a season two by the time we get to the end of this. Fuller House (obviously?) relies VERY heavily on the things that the writer loved about Full House. It feels less like Full House and more like a caricature of Full House. They are like Gremlins and Gremlins 2.

It is amazing how well most of the grownups have aged. Danny is the only one that looks significantly different. And even he doesn't really look aged. He's just wearing glasses and a totally different hairdo and...is he trying to be Leonard from Big Bang Theory instead of Danny from Full House?

While I watched the original series from time to time, I didn't watch it religiously nor do I believe I've seen every episode.  So I'd describe myself as a casual fan, at most.  It began airing when I was just four, so I think I've only seen the later seasons, probably those taking place in the 90s.

 

I've watched the first 4 episodes of this, and I have to admit it's a cute show.  I haven't read any reviews of it, but if it's being panned I can only imagine that the majority of the critics just aren't anywhere near the target demographic.  Most who were hardcore fans of the original will probably love this, and many late 80s/early 90s kids who were only casual viewers would likely enjoy it on some level, as well.  By no means would I like to see all sitcoms return to this 25 year-old style, but there's a part of me that really enjoys seeing something from my early youth revived like this.  Particularly considering how faithful the style is to the original.

 

 

But damn Stephanie got hot.

 

And how. I must have had good taste as a kid, too, as I vaguely recall having a crush on her when I watched back in the day.

I've not watched it yet, but to me the idea that its a 'modern' 90's sitcom seems like that'd be the main draw in its novelty. Of course not all shows should be like they were decades ago, but every now and then a show trying to capture the magic of a previous version or era is something that helps its stand out from every other show of its type. For example, if there were to be a Superhero show that tried to capture the campy nature of the 60's batman, that would standout against all the drama heavy superhero shows currently on.

Binged through the whole thing. It's amazing how much they drink and the frequency of the sex jokes.

Critics hated the original Full House, s hating this show as well shouldn't be a surprise. And the critics aren't wrong...and yet that doesn't make it a totally enjoyable show, nonetheless.

I would say the main flaw in this show is that D.J., who is the center of the show, is the only non-interesting charactee in the whole show. She is just a walking out-of-touch wholesome single mom steretype, whose only quirk is to constantly say "Oh my...lanta!"


If there was a second season on right now, I could easily binge through an all-nighter. I hope the show does well enough for more episodes.
