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...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

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.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

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

@  Gamma V : (18 May 2019 - 03:28 AM)

Haven't been here in a long time.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

@  Trpodeca : (17 May 2019 - 11:09 PM)

I voted. Boy there are a worrying amount of parties which sound like fascists.

@  Pennpenn : (17 May 2019 - 06:55 PM)

Wish they had adjusted her skin tone a bit, but everything else is there, so it's all good.  :)


Having a pink woman run around might lose a bit of believability in this too.

well this is possibly the same character from dofp ... so 

 

*wiggly hand motion*  ~

 

all we can hope for is the pink is a 'secondary mutation'  lol ... personally, I'm more interested in somebody just handing her a big gold arm guard and some belts.

 

blink-bigcostume5.jpg

 

a quiver full of spikes would be nice too but I think the belts might be pushing it already lol

 

<_<

>_> and maybe the Tallus could just get a passing joke line like.

 

Blink opens her nightstand and sees it phase into existence - only for her to shut the drawer and say something like "oh not that again." 

 

:rolleyes 

 

XD maybe she'll be the breakout character on the series and get a spin off where Fox uses her to fix the X-timeline   



"Does the Boss look different to you?" "She Looks Hot." "So that's a no then?"

Uses the actresses actual skin does save on makeup (expense & time) and adds to the variety of ethnicities represented by making her remain Korean.  So it's all good.

 

I do wonder though if she'll learn to use her power better via the crystals, or if that'll be something they don't both with due to possible budgetary reasons (or having to explain where they even come from)?

The first episode wasn't bad, but I felt my attention drifting a few times. The plot felt... I dunno. It didn't feel "new". New mutants discovering their powers, getting hunted, finding a sanctuary of sorts... It's basically the same plot we've seen time and again.

Especially when we have the main male child character tearing things apart with his mind when he loses control. That scene felt a little too much Legion for me. In fact... the plot was very Legion, but without the insanity hook that made Legion so compelling. 

 

Like I said, it wasn't bad. I'm not really criticizing it all that much here. I just hope that with all our characters introduced now we can tackle some more interesting plot strings.

I found the other cast to be more interesting than the kids and their parents. Helps that three of the four are existing likeable characters.

This was something I was unaware of also happened in the comics.  Just it was brown instead of black.

I gotta say, not being familiar with any of the characters in that last scene with the researchers, I was entirely lost. I had no idea what any of it meant and it failed to be any kind of stinger just a "wtf did I just watch" scene since no one was actually introduced and nothing was said about what they were doing.

 

Other than that scene though, it was a much better episode than the first one. They actually feel like real characters now rather than "Hey. Remember this person from the comic book? If you don't... I guess this doesn't mean anything to you."

I just realised that "John" is Thunderbird.  I wonder if they'll kill him off just like his comic counterpart.

Then do we get Warpath or does that have to wait for Deadpool 3 or the inevitable Cable solo-movie?

They probably used Thunderbird because they used Warpath in the films.

Unless this leads up to that movie at some point. Since Blink is there.

I love continuity shenanigans in a universe where time travel and alternate realities are a given established thing that happens XD 

 

So much fun!

 

but yeah, seeing the dye coming out was kinda the point I sat up and said.. "okay show you're impressing me."

See, I saw the dye coming out and thought, "oh damn, when's the last time Polaris washed her hair?!?"

 

Also, I feel better if I keep Legion and Gifted continuities the hell away from X-Film continuities.

Logan was great as a one-off, and I enjoyed the hell out of Deadpool, but the rest... well, I'd like to pretend that they don't even exist.

There's ways to keep dye in when washing, but it requires stuff that they wouldn't have let her have in prison.

I don't really spend a lot of time thinking about fictional character's personal hygiene regiments lol. however, considering she's basically a fugitive on the run and has been locked up for most of the series' runtime so far I'm thinking at best this was her first shower in a couple days, assuming they didn't let her have one at vampire dad's work.

Umm, most dye does not wash out without the use of "stuff" in the shower to keep it in.

She must be using the cheap, spray-in stuff or something.
