You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

If you are looking to recoup some of the costs, I mean

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:34 PM)

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:49 PM)

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:46 PM)

I'm not sure if anyone here knew James Conan Gouig, but he passed away. Suicide, sadly.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

The original pilot focused on people working at an insurance company dealing with the fallout of superhero/supervillain clashes.  After an internal shakeup, the show has changed to be focused on a division of Wayne Enterprises that develops essentially "As Seen On TV"-style gadgets designed to protect civilians DURING these clashes.

 

Meanwhile, Alan Tudyk's (Firefly, Suburbia, Rogue One) has been revamped since the original pilot to be Bruce Wayne's cousin.

 

The show also stars Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical, High School Musical 2, High School Musical 3, and the probably inevitable High School Reunion Musical), Ron Funches, and Danny Pudi (Community).

 

The zany action starts Thursday, February 2, at 8:30 on NBC.

 

Unlike Constantine, I'm betting that there is no way to fold this into the Arrow-verse (or even Gotham), but maybe there's room for multiverse crossover cameos at some point.

I love so many of the people involved in this that I am going to be a little sad when it flops. I remember the thread here describing this show's premise a while back and I admit I'm surprised it's made it this far. But it's really no more ridiculous than the other network television superhero shows that they just keep making. Someone must be watching. Not me, but someone!

I mean, if you gave me the choice between this and Maury Povich, I would definitely choose this.

The original concept of an insurance agency in the DC universe could have been interesting if handled well. Of course, that's assuming some effort was put into it and it could be argued that there likely wouldn't have been any. The new concept doesn't seem like it'll work in an established universe.

What's sad is that this show is taking the time slot of "The Good Place", a forking amazing show that's already had its season finale.

It's not desperation when it's a Krispy Kreme. Have you ever had one fresh off the line?

I've never done drugs, but I imagine that it has to be the closest one can legally get to crack.

Saw the first episode.  Such a great cast wasted on bland, generic humor.  Hopefully, it gets better from here, but I have my reservations.
