Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. 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

@  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!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  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.

I think in this ep, whatever plan the legion of doom comes up with, will go wrong and fail because:

 

(Drum roll)

 

Friendship is MAGIC!!!

 

Then again, it could simply be a slice of life with the villians trying to form a plan of action and we see various plans from different protectives and they all end in failure

Just watched the ep, I found it kind of intersting to watch, Trek was clearly the smarter one, let the girls do the attempting and then sit back and relax, of course, some of this was kind of predictable but I think the seed of their reforming has been sown, despite what they believe. The song in the early part of the ep is kind of weird for a villian song, but it does sort of work for the scene.

 

At this point, I predict that the villians either reform with Grogar being the final villian of the show and becoming extremely angry at the betrayal that going to happen and he is the one imprisoned in Tartarus or the four of them ending up in Tartarus together for the rest of their lives and argue in their cells about whose fault it is until the end.

Its up to the people writing the scripts but I do get the feeling that one or more of them will sort of reform but become a anti-hero thou I doult that will happen as its the last season of FIM but it might be something they do in whatever follows FIM.

 

Of the three, Trek is my fav, he not out to rule the land but instead obtain power for the sake of power thou I would like the show to explore his back story a bit more and give us the reason he wants so much power, then again, Cosy Glow desire is control over others, thou in this ep, I kind of liked how she shown to have a temper when she doesn't get her way, it kind of makes me wonder if she has a bit of a spilt personalty, then again she could just be rather short tempered by the way her personallty switches so quickly.

They're gonna fight the friendship every step of the way, but working together is the only way to defeat, and subsequently be free from, grogar. It's also going to... reform would be too powerful a word... rehabilitate them. Still jerks, but jerks with a basic sense of how to work together and how they actually hurt other people.

I like this episode. Villian-centric episodes are fun. The music number was wtf in a fun way. Cozy is quickly going from annoying to amusing.

I don't think any of them will reform. They love being bad too much. But being lovable villains isn't out of the question.

I see why they had to kill off Sombra, because he's too OP to follow the plot this episode demanded. Climbing a mountain would not be an issue.

 

I think the main reason they bought Sombra back was simply to give him some personalty as Fans been wanting him to make a return appearance, his previous appearances, he had no personalty whatsoever, his first appearance, he was pretty much a black shadow cloud thing, while his second was in the alterative timelines that Twilight and Spike visited. Plus, having Sombra reappear and bow out in the manner he did was just a little reminder to the remaining trio that on their own, they are more likely to fail.

 

With Cozy, I think they finally settled upon a personalty for her, where she uses the cute/sweetness to her advantage but then loosing control of her emotions, so we can actually enjoy her more, I didn't really like Cozy in the last season but then I feel she wasn't really setup to be a villian and it was a last moment choice, however, putting her with the known at the time out standing big bads of the series has actually helped her character to develop more, at least to me.

I neither liked or disliked her. I was genuinely CONFUSED by her until the tree did that hunger games thing in the basement. Then in reflection: she was obviously up to SOMETHING, but couldn't peg what.
