It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

I liked Deaths reappearance however he doesn't seem to be all that powerful given that he can be bound by humans.
This God in Supernatural sounds more like a being that screwed with the natural order within the universe rather then the creator of the universe.
And here's a thought, what if the Apocalypse is still ongoing? Castiel may have shot himself in the foot killing so many Angels.

'Hello Cruel World'
HIGHLIGHT to view:

Through the water mains Leviathans are loosed on Bobby's hometown of Sioux Falls taking over various people like demons and angels only they can shape shift them as one who took a little girl later takes a doctors form. While vulnerable they appear to be able to regenerate their forms. They aren't invulnerable but they appear indestructible as one host is crushed but the pool of blood or Leviathan goop is shown receding, maybe returning to it's host.
Unless this is a two or three parter, it looks like the show has taken a new format and with the removal of Bobby and Castiel I suspect this Sheriff Jodie Mills will become a supporting character.

One thing bugs me about Castiel, his human host Jimmy Novak's family was featured in the season 4 episode 'The Rapture' and this host has taken a pummeling these past few seasons, so is he dead or what? He's been blown up by Angels, usually the hosts die when the angels do so is Jimmy dead too? They never returned to this.

Episode 3HIGHLIGHT to view:

Jewel Stait from Firefly and Stargate Atlantis is the monster of the week, she's similar to the one from season fours Metamorphosis only she kills again to save her child from a sickness. She had a brief encounter with fifteen year old Sam who killed her mother and let her go (due to his teen hormones) and while Sam spares her this time, Dean goes to see her behind Sams back and kills her, I think it is foolish he spared the kid given his history with other similar creatures.
Last week ended on a cliffhanger with Bobby's yard burned down and the boys badly injured and headed to the very hospital they fought Leviathans in, this episode begins with Bobby just popping up alive, pulling them out, taking them to one of Rufus place and neither seems to question how or why which is very disappointing given the enemies they face capable of possessing them.
While I am all for standalone episodes I'm not sure this is working they shouldn't throw the Leviathans in every episode for the sake of it, aside from a amusing cheesy ending they do nothing in this one.
And where's the Angels and Demons? surely they'd want to assess the threat of the Leviathans at this early stage.

Episode Four:
Another Pagan only one who can summon ghosts turns up, it is the ancient Egyptian god Osiris who is there to pass judgement on Dean who is still fretting Sam will find out about him killing his girlfriend monster. He summons Jo to tell Dean he carries a lot of crap which ties in nicely to the season four episode where the boys dealt with ghosts of Megs host, Agent Henrickson and the guy who took hostages at the bank in season 2. With god gone, the angels and demons depleted perhaps the Pagans will play a bigger role in the series.
Episode Five
James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter turns up as a bickering couple set for divorce due to cheating, the twist is that they are witches. I didn't really realise it was them until I read wikipedia. The episode was terrible especially the ending, the brothers try to stop them but take a pounding while getting the two to reconcile then they are allowed to leave only to run into a Leviathan though James Marsters character paralyses it, that's the main 'big bad' of the season brought down by a witch.

Episode Six
I am not seeing anything about this anywhere, I guess it was a bit too dark for some.
It begins with the Winchesters going into a bank Dean hitting on a teller like he would then the brothers seal the place, force everyone into a vault and then open fire on them.
The episode was about the Leviathans posing as Dean and Sam (thanks to hair samples they got from a motel) and they to bring the two down so they go on a killing spree working their way from where the brothers began in season one, the real Winchesters go off the grid to hunt the two down but the show ends revealing the Leviathans have seized high places in the FBI and possibly other organisations, the Leviathan leader there is visited by Crowly who has a peace offering but he's told to shove off.

Did anyone else watch Deaths Door?
It was all about Bobby, who took a bullet to the head from the chief Leviathan in the last episode, now he's at Deaths door and flatlines at the end of the episode.
The thing is, the episode could have served as the characters swansong, I honestly can't think of a better send off and the cliffhanger sort of brings it down.

The producers have said that this season's arc is about taking away everything the boys have. They've lost Cas, they've lost the Impala, they've lost their usual aliases, they've lost Bobby's library, and now they've lost Bobby himself.

They haven't quite lost each other yet. I'm guesing that's next. . .

I don't really care for this Leviathan story arc of Supernatural, I think they should just kill off the leader at the end of this season and have the Leviathans become small time monsters like Vampires and demons, then have season 8 just be standalones featuring the odd changeling, Djinn and ghost to come full circle.

This season is notable for the absence of the Angels who would surely be wanting to do something about the Leviathans, the demons too are gone, they had Crowly turn up a quarter of the way in then tell the boys he'd give them a wide berth to fight the Leviathans. What's stupid is the Leviathans seem powerless with no access to heaven and hell and have a weakness they could easily exploit.

The next episode apparently has two Archangels fighting over a new prophet, it's not a stretch to figure out who since there were only four and two left!

I got into this show thanks to a friend loaning me the first season on DVD about a year and a half ago. Since then I've slowly been buying the seasons on DVD, and just last week managed to catch up fully with the last episode of season 7. I have to say I -LOVE- this show.

Season 6 I'll admit took me a while to get into, it wasn't until HIGHLIGHT to view:
Sam got his soul back that it 'felt' like Supernatural again.

For Season 7, I've REALLY been enjoying it. I like the Leviathans, as you can't really 'kill' them. Just slow them down.

Though it does bring up a question that's been bugging me all season...

Where is the Colt, and do we KNOW it won't kill a Leviathan!?

That's a very good question, in season 5 Lucifer was shot and revived, he said the colt can't kill five things, presumably three were archangels, god and death though the last two may be the same species and Lucifer may not be familiar with Leviathans.

I liked the episode and the end where the Leviathan took out the angels casually was exactly what they need to be serious villains.

Are you referring to the leviathan killing the angels? Im pretty sure that was a something the leviathan did not the angels anatomy. Angels bleed red blood as witnessed when Cazz used his own blood to banish himself and other angels a while back.
