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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

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

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

I've heard 8:30 pm Eastern/Pacific.

And if you don't mind spoilers, there's a wonderful summary of the first episode already up at: http://www.animation...?articleID=1482

Some of the designs for the character armor/costuming is wonderful, think I even saw Appa in something... ;> I shan't say more!

I wanna see Zukko either come to his senses or get the crap smacked outta him ike he so richly deserves. I'm still holding out that his siding with his sister at the end of Season 2 was part of some scheme on his part since I just don't want to accept that he's that stupid. But if he is...someone please kick his ass.

I still feel bummed that it looks like Iroh won't be teaching Aang firebending. I am very curious to see what they do with him, whether they keep him locked away, or some other easy out to avoid issues since Mako passed away, or if they let him get it back together and escape at some point.

Yea, that trailer is amazing. I got the official release of the high res version w/o all the screaming fans, it's amazing.

I agree. He needs to clean up his act and realize what side he's been on all along.

Also, I wanna see what Fire Lord Ozai looks like!

Or, more importantly, what side Azula's been on all along.

How the hell can he even contemplate trusting her?!?

I think there's a good reason why we haven't seen Zuko's dad's face... I suspect he's burned too, and its not a Father-son relationship Iro's been trying to recapture ..but an elder brother-younger brother one


but then again I like to over complicate things

Zuko doesn't Trust Azula... but he doesn't trust himself more... he doesn't know who he is...so he fell back on what he knows.

I'd missed quite a few episodes from Book 2, so picked up the box set last Tuesday to catch up. I'm now pretty psyched for Book 3 to begin, and thankfully for once YTV seems to be airing it concurrently with Nick; hopefully they keep it up for all 20 episodes. I'm still hoping that Iroh is the one to teach Aang firebending; at least initially.

I've got to say, though, after watching all of Book 2 over the last week that my favourite character is now probably Toph. With my intermittent watching (mostly thanks to YTV's weird schedule) of Book 2 when it aired, I never really gathered an appreciation for her character. However, upon a repeat viewing, the writers really did a great job developing her personality... especially considering the fact she's only appeared in 15 episodes whereas the others have been on since the beginning. It's impressive how many strong female characters this show has; both good and evil. I'm hoping this season Toph will get a chance to show more of what she can do in terms of bending ability against some of the already established Masters/prodigies like Azula.

I'm also really looking forward to seeing Azula being taken down... badly. Rarely have I actively disliked an antagonist to the extent I do her... usually cartoon villains have at least a couple redeeming qualities, and a somewhat sympathetic backstory. But Azula is terrible, and totally insane.

Toph is already badass. She intuited metalbending.

And Iroh had it right: "[Azula]'s crazy, and she needs to go down."

Nice, can't wait. It seems like forever since the last season ended.

Really hope Iroh is around and still plays a part in everything. He's been one of my favorite characters on there, and it's an archtype we really don't get that much, at least for more than 5 minutes prior to mentor dying to provide his student with rage/determination.

No, the general that Aang tried learning firebending from-- out of order-- which resulted in Aang severely injuring Katara.

Yeah, one of the few firebeander that could actually teach Aang how to. It would be intrestign to see them meet up again, after how much he's matured since their last meeting

I don't think Zuko will come to his senses per se. I think he'll go back with Azula and either be frightened by his newfound complacency or riddled with nagging doubts and guilt. I think he's going to end up being the one to kill Azula, and he'll die in the process. There is no easy, clean way to wrap this up. No kiddie-approved bloodless coup. The only way out is to kill Ozai and Azula and seat either Iroh or the Earth King as Fire Lord. It still won't be pretty, but it will end the war. At least for now.
