I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

Awesome news.  This is probably my favourite comic-based show on television right now.

It's trippy as shit.

Her acting was great (and it has been for the whole show so far), but I have the distinct feeling that it pushed the premise and the sequences farther than it should've, which directly impacted how much we got to explore everybody's issues.

 

Also I can't help but think that in some scenes certain characters weren't actually there (Wallace regurgitating Lenny's lines, and David himself when he showed up in Sydney's room).

Well, David got the baldness and suit-and-tie right, just not so much the walking around.

Actually, he was able to walk at that time - it was the battle with Farouk that made his legs no-worky.

 

I had wondered if that's who the monster was, but then I thought to myself, "There's no way that they'd use Farouk in this show.  Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if they ignore David's true parentage."

 

Colour me pleasantly surprised.

 

I am a little surprised that Farouk is such a house-hold name amongst the other members of the team, especially if he's been dormant for 20+ years.  Doesn't seem like the type of story that would make its way around ancillary circles of mutants.

 

Maybe they all read about it in those X-Men comics from the Logan continuity...

Is that something they've said for this show? I know it was an alien called Lucifer in the original comics who first paralyzed Chuck. I mean, it works fine that way, but it'd be a strong divide from the X-Men movie "continuity" that I've been assuming this is supposed to be tangentially connected to.

I'm pretty sure that it was the Shadow King that made Chuck paraplegic in the comics.

I had a trading card back in the 90s that attested to the fact.

 

I haven't followed comics closely enough since mid-nineties to know whether they retconned that or not.

 

EDIT:  I did some INTERNET research, and Chuck originally was crippled by Lucifer, but then after the Brood impregnated his body, they moved Chuck into a cloned body, which had working legs.  Then be battled Shadow King was lost the use of his legs again.

I know of at least one time he regained and lost the use of his legs after that too. And wouldn't be surprised by more.

ZacWilliam, it became a little bit of a stock move for them with him...

The issue with Legion and Shadow King were the first X-Men comics I ever have. So that story and this show hold a special place for me.

Loved the finale. Genuinely felt bad for the Division 3 guy.

Aubrey Plaza was more frightening than the yellow eyes devil.

Well, Yellow-eyed devil guy didn't evolve as much in terms of looks as she did. Her look in that last sequence with her in David's mind was terrifying.

 

I'm surprised everybody managed to make it out of the finale alive, actually.

At this point, it'd almost be a kindness to kill off Melanie.  Poor girl finally got Oliver back only to lose him again.

 

Also, the "stinger" mid-credits was really, really weird.  Is that what Equinox was supposed to be?
