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)

@  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.

@  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.

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

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

Siobhan Tilly, Sylvia's mother.

She's never seen onscreeen, but she's a key character in one of the Discovery prequel novels, and she is the most horrible mother in Star Trek. Not just funny-horrible, like Lwaxana, but every word out of her mouth is to berate or criticize her daughter and belittle her life choices. She's the reason why Tilly is so neurotic by the time we meet her.

Navi - Zelda OoT, needs no explanation

Reginald Hargreeves - Good grief! Talk about emotional abuse!

Balak - damn Batarian scumbag. And the thing that just really gets me is that in a paragon play through, he never gets his comeuppance

Gavin Archer - when even the paragon option has you pistol whipping someone and threatening to shoot them, you know the character's about as scummy as you can get.

Kai Leng - even my paragon Shepherds never fails in hitting that one renegade trigger

Hudson - whinny little bitch. Newt was braver than this guy.

Carter Burke - at least Hudson manned up enough to save Newt from a facehugger. Burke was the a-hole that tried to kill her...a child!

But most of all, and probably most inexplicably...the Silver Millennium Crystal from Sailor Moon.  *snip*

 

Yeah, it was a pretty bad McGuffin. I got into the original anime first, then when I read parts of the manga and they're killing the small-time baddies so easily and there's barely any character or redemption like in the anime. Oh well.

 

As for the topic... I think one char that comes close to pure hatred for me is this person:

It is tough, as there is "love to hate" and just plain "hate."

 

"Love to hate" would be characters like Kefka from FF6, various incarnations of the Joker (some are better than others), Thanos, or even various Megatrons.  You like the character, but hate them and what they do at the same time.  They tend to be my favorite types of bad guys.

 

For "hate," I can't think of a ton, but probably Treize Khushrenada from Gundam Wing.  Even David Kaye doing his voice could not save his character.  I am just unsympathetic to him or any of his followers, and it made watching much of Gundam Wing annoying and is one I don't have much inkling to go back to.  Granted, much of Gundam has that trait with unsympathetic bad guys (Zeon, Titans, Neo-Zeon, ZAFT, etc).

Most of the Celestial Dragons in One Piece. Usually with villains I either love them, love to hate them, or roll my eyes at how over the top "evil" they are made to try and sell them as a Big Bad. The Celestial Dragons are irredeemable scum in a way that doesn't feel emotionally manipulative or forced in an over the top manner even when they do outrageous things. Instead the story uses them to tap into a very unpleasant vein of humanity and mine it for all its worth. Slavers, bigots, wantonly cruel. They sit atop a hereditary aristocracy seeing themselves as gods who can do what they please to everyone else... and most of the time they can because if anyone resists the power of the state will crush them.

 

Hate is a strong word for fictional characters, but they are all too human monsters and whenever they get some form of comeuppance I'm pretty happy.
