@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Havarti, without a doubt.

@  Greebtron : (12 December 2019 - 01:28 AM)

Not Don, thanks. I'd like a writer who actually cares enough to do the job properly

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 09:34 PM)

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

Any folks here watching this? The pilot was made available in YouTube but now it's continuing, though is it just a mini? Feels like Over the Garden Wall, where it would end. But then it wouldn't be an Infinity Train.

I have a feeling that she's freezing to death and just hallucinating. If that's the case though, that seems like a cheat.

I don't know what the numbers mean but that other passenger being disintegrated means serious business.

Er, YouTube? Though saw it in other channels, er.

I'm midway and I'm still reminded of that Adventure Time episode where he's trapped in an endless train dungeon. Especially with the ep 5 thing.

Over the Garden Wall was moments before death but this is possibly Silent Hill? She has unresolved issues that's she's blocking out with puzzles.

One-One is her emotions, I'm fairly sure. The King is her support. The number... I'm still not sure.

Ugh, just tried searching YT, and it's a mess.  Lots of part 1's in random order, occasional part 2's, interspersed with videos of people watching episodes.  If there's a coherent playlist in a useful order, it's not showing up.  I'll wait for it to get on air or at least finish so I can find a compilation video of all the parts.

I saw it... in 2 minute increments. But episode 1 was hard to find.

I'm down to the last two eps, final day. The Chrome mirror ep was great but is it a filler puzzle? Then suddenly what the F on the 8th ep. That was just too much. They better the hell fix it up, gosh dang!

Saw the last eps.

Holy cow, I got a lot of things wrong. I think I got a certain theme right though.

It's a little more satisfying that Above the Garden Wall but I realize that I WANT more of the puzzle filler eps. The plot is fine but, during that part when she was running through all the weird, imaginative cars, that was great and I want more of that.

Near end, look at the wall. What do(n't) you see? Freaky as hell.

Was the name 'Infinity Train' mentioned even once in the show?

The ride isn't over. The ride ISN'T over.

I just finished it myself and I really enjoyed it.

 

My only complaint is that, in making a mostly complete and self-contained story, it (seemingly) didn't leave much to explore in further seasons about the train itself which, unlike the name, was far from 'infinite'. I really wished they'd stuck to Tulip's journey and left the train as a bigger mystery, especially since ever since I watched the pilot, I got a really big "Cube" vibe from it.

 

Still, a second season has already been announced and there's still a lot about the show's universe we know nothing about. Let's hope it doesn't take 3 years this time!

I thought of Cube too, when the car first did that thing.

We still don't know how people are chosen so I'm thinking it's still a Silent Hill thing going on.

But I get why Tulip is left at a loss at the end. It would carry over to Season 2, so they can use her without actually using her.

Finally saw it (the whole thing is on watchcartoonsonline for us outside The Country).

I loved that it resolved as a self-contained story, but there is still plenty to explore.

Did you guys realize that was Captain Janeway playing the Cat?!?

Am not Trek versed so I didn't know. You think the cat will be back? I know I'd like to see Atticus back.

Guess it's ok to spoil but Tulip is missing her reflection! She's a vampire now! Those soul sucking roaches got her somehow!

Kidding. But really, I hope she stays where she is. Mirror Tulip (Pilut?) could carry on in her stead, at least voice actress wise, just to keep continuity.

I wonder if the 'infinity' in the train means you get to stay there forever but you don't age? You have all the time in the world to deal with your Silent Hill issues. Which is a little horrifying if you can't face them...

I don't know that she aged. She just, er, might have been haggard? It's just the rate of decor she has.

It would have been AWFUL if her mom thought she was with her dad and her dad thought she was with her mom and nobody missed her!

The writers have confirmed that time keeps going as normal while on the train.

Do you mean the lack of  reflection or something else?

I marathoned this is one day but now wish I hadn't since so many mysteries were resolved in the final episode, and I too enjoyed seeing some of the wacky cars.

Pretty deep for a cartoon network show. Felt like Cube meets Neverending story

I thought the voices for one one seemed a bit amateurish somehow. I liked the cat, didn't realise it was Janeway.

More please

This was alright, but I feel it suffered for being a mini series.

 

It just felt like they were going on as if it was to be a show, then realized they only had a few episodes left and had to rush to the ending.


It's a secret to everybody
