'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

ill still keep paying for youtube....mostly so i dont ever see any ads. which is well worth 9.99

I just started watching season 1, but it's quite entertaining show. Like it

Sweep the leg Johnny!

 

 

Seriously, the show is great, especially if you grew up watching the movies. I still need to see the last two, as I haven't seen them since they were out on VHS.

Well, now that it's on Netflix I just might watch it, assuming they also have the previous seasons.

After a year hiatus, we finally watched the rest of Cobra Kai Season 1 today and yesterday.  I really like the show.

I watched 2 episodes when they were free.  It might have been TWO years ago.  I live in a time warp with a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old.  I bought the DVD when I saw it was released and it went on the shelf waiting for a turn.  The announcement about Netflix brought it back to mind and my wife liked it better than she thought she would.  Now we have a couple weeks until we can watch Season 2.  But I think I will watch Karate Kid soon.  I did watch it once as a grownup, but it has been over a decade.

I watched the first two in the last year, and enjoyed them. I still haven't gone back to watch the third film though.

I watched 2 when I watched 1.  Probably about the time the Jackie Chan movie came out.  I haven't seen 3 since I saw it in the theater.

 

Edit - I just read the wiki synopsis of 3.  It just sounds boring to me.  I don't remember it being that interesting when I was 11 either.  But apparently the apartments from 1 are getting torn down in 3.  They put them back up some time for Cobra Kai...

I guess the deal didn't work out that well for the owner. 

 

I have seen parts of the third film, but I don't think that I have ever seen all of it.

My Dad took my brother and I to Karate Kid, Part 2 in the theater and I loved it.  I didn't see the first one until some years later, but kids at school talked about it a lot.  When 3 came out I was 11 and my brother was 14 and they actually let us watch it by ourselves.  But we didn't like it.  My parents went to UHF while we watched it and they talked about it a lot afterward.  I always wished I had gone with them.

The first season is just really craftily done and I'm impressed.  It does trip over a few tropes I would have avoided, but all in good fun.  I was just thinking about Sid just now.  On the first episode, we know Johnny is just a washed out loser and though Sid is a little gruff, I felt for him in the situation.  He's just so tired of taking care of a grownup loser, but he helps him one last time.  10 episodes later and we know he's just a terrible bully with so much money he doesn't mind using it to lord over people.  Johnny is Johnny.  The show doesn't pretend like he's a misunderstood angel.  He makes mistakes.  Plenty of them.  But it turns out he has a heart, feels regrets, owns mistakes, and has always hoped to do the right thing.  For a moment I felt like he was a hypocrite in the last match, but I then I recalled that he didn't really want to sweep the leg.  He felt terrible about it at the time, but his sensei ordered it and he did it.  I just think it is really great that they make him the protagonist without white washing or pretending.  He is still a recovering bully and he still doesn't have stuff figured out.

 

I'm impressed with Ralph Macchio too.  I think Johnny is the better actor, but Ralph Macchio, as executive producer, agreed to play a Daniel that isn't a white knight.  Daniel was never perfect in the Karate Kid, but he had the writers clearly on his side.  Grownup Daniel is self-absorbed, spoiled, and cannot let bygones go.  But it honestly isn't an assassination of the character, I think.  It's a completely believable extension of the Karate Kid.  But Ralph Macchio was brave to go along with it.  It would have been no surprise to me if an actor, known for little else than this 80s role, balked at this treatment.  But I think he was actually a part of making it up.

I watched Karate Kid today and it deepened my appreciation for Cobra Kai.  Daniel had a better teacher and that made all the difference.  He is hothead, ready to get in fights, ready to cause some trouble, rushes in without thinking.  You can see humanity several times in Johnny.  Johnny and Daniel in Cobra Kai are very organic extensions of their characters from Karate Kid.
