And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

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.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  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)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  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.

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?

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.
