He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

And checking: those monitors are REALLY expensive.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 October 2019 - 09:30 AM)

Eh, I'm happy with multiple 1080's personally.

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:21 PM)

Everyone needs a 1440 monitor. Just set up my new battle station and I never knew how much I was missing!

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

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

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

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.
