CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

Well, we know that the process that creates demons is basically just operant conditioning --brainwashing. It does make a kind of sense that there could be a "deprogramming" process.

We're not really sure what happens during possession; the only survivors we've spoken too are either amnesiac or describe the feeling of seeing themselves do these horrible things, but being unable to stop themselves. For someone who didn't know about/believe in demons and possession, imagine how terrifying that would be --you would have to assume that it was actually you doing these things, and you'd have no idea why you're not able to stop.

We also don't actually know what happened to the demon after the priest "cured" it --did it disappear (leaving the host's soul behind --essentially a bloodless exorcism)? Did it merge with the host? Did it continue to possess the poor bastard (in which case, it was the demon itself wondering why he did what he did)? Was it killed by a demon hit-squad the moment the camera stopped rolling?

QUOTE(Ricky Spanish @ May 10 2013, 05:28 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
The latest episode, clip show, really bothered me.
I always thought the demons were just evil humans yet along comes this episode referring to a magical 'taint'. Some demon is 'cleansed' of it and is clueless as to why it ate it's hosts two children and laughed.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.


I'm assuming that a return to "pure innocence" brings enlightenment. It's like looking back on really stupid decisions in your past after becoming wiser with age. Your initial response is"what the hell was I thinking?"

I wonder too on if the demon stays in the host body or just goes to heaven.

Castiel in the store made me laugh. Would have been more heart wrenching if the waitress really acted innocent before she died. Is Metatron lying about the trials?

Poor Sarah and the other folks icon-screamer.gif

Why bring back Abbadon? Hope their grandfather gets resurrected somehow.

So this is why Meg had to die. If she was still around, she'd willingly be purified.

I only just saw the ending, season finale.

That was lackluster. No big throwdown and whatnot.

Castiel better have SOME grace left. He'll be totally wasted as a human. I'd like to think that his Grace was removed by different means and can be recovered while the other fallen angels will have a harder time retrieving theirs. What powers did Lucifer have anyway, after he Fell?

Sam should have completed the ritual. Needs of the many vs needs of few. Dean was just being selfish, wanting his brother around. He'll have Castiel around anyway. Should have locked all the demons away

Season 9 is three eps already. Kinda meandering a bit but Tamoh Peniket (or however his name is spelled) was in the first ep so that's kinda cool. His angel might not use him as a body again tho. Cool that Sam has angel powers now as opposed to being demonically tainted. It'll help with Castiel being powerless :(

Who the hell are these unknown and new hunters? I want the hugging replacement Bobby back. Or the hunter kids. Or maybe that witch cop too.

Just about to see the third ep. Hope it's good.

Last nights Supernatural was the worst one yet this season and worse still is that it is a backdoor pilot to a spin off called Supernatural Bloodlines.

It dropped ten characters on us, none of them interesting, just a bunch of dullards spouting crap about their lives and it was only in the last third of the episode we go to Sam and Deans case there.

Half the problem is that they established these monsters already, Supernatural has even shown the alpha and omega of this universe, it's shown us the ultimate destiny of humans and monsters and explored their origins and traits so often that Bloodlines couldn't possibly bring much new to the table.

What could Bloodlines possibly do? 

have a whole season devoted to a cold war? then end with a influx of Leviathans or Jefferson Starships? being back Eve? the Pagan gods? honestly maybe this seasons Metatron arc should culminate with him rewriting the universe allowing Bloodlines to be something fresh and unknown.

Yeah,,,bloodlines was really awful, not feeling like  Supernatural at all, and judging by their facebook page, it was pretty much universally hated by the diehard fans of the show.

 

Still, I can see the meeting at the CW now. "So pretty much all the fans despise this idea and direction for the spinoff, but we're going to go ahead with it anyway, right?"

"Absolutely, what do the fans know?"

Wow, I can't wait to watch this ep and get turned off by it, hehe.

Ten new hunters? Some wouldn't happen to be those three kids whose parents were killed to make them better hunters, no?

Maybe good monsters like that dog shifter looking for a family?

Not hunters, a few humans, werewolves, shapeshifters, vampires and D'jinn.

Two cops, one I suspect is going to be the main character, the other maybe recurring

A family of three shapeshifters (minus the gooey shapeshifting), and some hired goons.

A family of werewolves one which is a love interest for a shapeshifter.

 

A few problems with the setting too.

- Season 6: Eve, the mother of all monsters is raised from purgatory and sends the Monsters into a bloodlust THAT should have had a effect on them.

- Season 7: Sucrocorp HQ is in Chicago, that was the Leviathans base of operations, they were culling monsters by poisoning their food products and if Eve didn't expose the families surely the Leviathans would have culled them.

Just saw the ep. Um, yeah. One hunter. One 'charming, rogue-ish' shifter. Sean Faris as a werewolf. Yeah. I think Bloodlines is trying to get into the family politics intrigue from Tru Blood or Game of Thrones or Twilight?

I get that they're trying to be different from Supernatural (two bros roughing it against evil) and going for something more grounded but I'm not really into that kind of drama.

I'm curious about the other two factions though. Glad it wasn't vampires vs werewolves... yet. Djinn and shifters, cool. And you know demons would get involved. And yeah, why Chicago?

Bloodlines doesn't look terrible, just boring. It's The Originals minus Klaus and Elijah, the only two interesting characters.

 

And I guess Benny really changed Sam and Dean, cause they didn't even go through the usual game of "should every monster be killed simply because they're monsters" roulette.

 

 

I need to get back into this fandom. I kinda abandoned the show after season 5 ended.

I'd kinda like one more season, just 13 episodes to give the brothers and Castiel a happy ending. It's ep 21 and there's really not much to this season. They just did a major thing, eliminating a big player and it like it was nothing. Same with Castiel killing, er, that minister of rebel angels before. Run of the mill. Where's the build up and grand explosions?

Heh, Dean had a 'sword of omens, come to my hand' moment.

Okay, here's my spin off to Supernatural:

Fairies invade the realm, they battle both Angels and Demons forcing both to retreat into the multiverse and the series picks up months after this event. The two main characters marry and work for a company seeking to save this universe from the fairies.

 

Jessica, Sams former girlfriend has been reincarnated by the fairies, she was in hell where she was tortured and turned into a demon, she is purified with the cleansing ceremony but still haunted by memories of what happened to her and what she did as a demon, she also finds she has super powers and is the target of many monsters, fairies, angels and demons.

 

Gaines, He hosted the archangel Gabriel and maintains some of his memories, he often feels like he is being played by everyone too and spends time helping people and cracking a memory puzzle he has that may be key to restoring the universe.

I haven't seen the final episodes yet but just noted that in Godzilla 2014, Ty Olsson aka Benny the vampire from season 8, was in the credits. Who was he there? All I noticed was Optimus Primal Gary Chalk near the start.
