Also, strike has been extended. So no working for 50 minutes. Would have been fun, though.

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:21 PM)

I said numerous times already that I work at that big American corporation that begins with "A".

Can you say where you work at? Or is that private?

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Hahaha, awesome.

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

Nonsense. Everything changes, the cycle is an illusion.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

@  wonko the sane? : (07 December 2018 - 02:09 PM)

I finally got something off my steam wishlist! but managed to add another title immediately: so there was no change. Dang it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

Am I the only one here who's been watching this? Are you all too hopped up on ponies?

It's a really awesome cartoon, the right mix of action and humor (most of it surreal) with some great characters and interesting world building, not to mention some mathematical tunes icon-ironhide.gif .

So, those of you who like this show should come discuss it here and those of you who haven't seen it yet should watch a few episodes, imho it beats the pants off a certain other show that shall remain nameless.

10 seconds of a 30 second commercial was about all I could stand. Maybe you can tell me why this is better than every other crappy art cartoon being churned out by CN over the past 15 years.

Adventure Time is great!

Much better than CNs own slock. It was actually an award winning animated short adapted into being a series by it's creator.

I wouldn't have expected it either, but once I actually watched... I don't miss an episode now.

It's really well written, fun clever adventure stuff with good humor and enjoyable characters.. Take classic DnD, Thundar the barbarians post apocalyptic world, Johnny Quest, Kamandi the last boy, Bill Murry, and the Venture Bros (minus the "adult" stuff) and mix it with some fun surrealness and use it to create a well written, surprising cartoon that kids and geeky parents can both love and you have Adventure Time!


-ZacWilliam, seriously, one of the best cartoons on TV right now IMO.

Well for starters, despite it's appearances it is an action cartoon as well as a comedy. It's about Finn the human and Jake the dog in the land of Ooo, which is hinted as being a post apocalyptic wasteland after being devastated by 'The Mushroom War'. Which explains why there are no humans apart from Finn and why everyone is some kind of mutant. It's got an interesting sorta fantasy setting with some technological elements.

The episodes are mostly episodic but there is continuity and the end of last season had 'the big bad' The Lich (who was mentioned in past episodes as being defeated by Billy the Legendary Hero) being resurrected. Think of it like MLP:FiM if the rest of the show was more like the tone set in the pilot (but also much more awesome). The characters are very likeable, Finn and Jake's friendship being very sweet at times, not to mention Princess Bubblegum, Marceline the Vampire Queen or Lumpy Space Princess (OH MY GLOB).

I'll admit some of the adverts can be annoying especially as they tend to show the more surreal moments without context; for example for the newest episode that premiers this week the adverts keep focusing on one character with the most annoyingly screechy voice. If that had been my first experience with it I'm not sure I'd have wanted to watch it either, but give it a couple of episodes (they're only 10 mins long) and see if you like it. If you do, you do, if you don't, you don't.

I watched RS for the first time yesterday; it wasn't bad. I liked the main two characters but the show at times feels like it's trying too hard to be surreal or absurd with the other characters (like OMG THIS GUY IS A GUMBALL MAHCINE FOR NO REASON).

Regular Show is definitely one that needs a few episodes "get". Also, it was apparently inspired by cocaine. EDIT: Tonight's ep is a rerun, but a really good ep to get a feeling for the show when it's firing on all cylinders.

But Adventure, Time, I've loved it since day one, and has very rarely disappointed me. But much like MLP, it can't be explained by simply showing people the funny parts out of context, one needs to watch it, see the great animation (animation itself is different from art style), listen to the funny dialogue (and what they manage to get away with!) and immerse themselves in the pure FUN to be had.

I've adopted Math into my rotation of pseudo-swears. They really do get away with a ton of stuff. LSP is the best. As are Stanley and his family. I hope Fin still has that tiny computer in his throat, I've missed it.

The show has this strange Naive Darkness to it. Like Invader Zim without the bleakness. I mean, they made me laugh out loud at implicit cannibalism.
