To be honest they did ignore big chunks of the stuff from the movie. Also never had the balls to portray Jesus as a rogue Goa'uld (yeah yeah I know shut up).

@  Echowarrior : (20 March 2019 - 08:57 PM)

The original Stargate movie was okay for what it was. SG1 was a decent show that probably lasted too long. Atlantis was a decent show that could've lasted a little longer. Universe...gah. There were exactly two characters on that show that I liked, and neither was enough to help it in my mind.

@  Xellos : (20 March 2019 - 04:05 PM)

I got into SG1 right as season 8 ended. The Stargates were the last shows that I would make sure to watch every week. Since Universe ended, I really have not been addicted to any live action series.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 03:12 PM)

The concept of the film had enormous potential, and the rest was literally writers one upping each other when they didn't know if they were going to get renewed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 March 2019 - 02:40 PM)

Haven't got as far as Universe yet, but I finished SG-1 on Prime last week and I'm part of the way through Atlantis, now. Amazing how long it went on, just based off a single film

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 March 2019 - 02:36 PM)

Teal'c PI never happened but Teengate did.

@  Cybersnark : (20 March 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Indeed.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Yeah, SG1 is fairly and uniformely good throught out it's entire run. Atlantis isn't quite as good, but has quite a few good episodes, and universe wasn't a bad take on the more dramatic and outlandish aspects of the universe.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 March 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Man, I should've watched the Stargate TV shows years ago; they're a lot better than I ever expected

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Well, if the merchant benefited from it there's no harm, I guess. Some people just aren't comfortable dealing with foreign currencies; although admittedly those usually aren't the types who'll go to a place like Estonia.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:51 PM)

I gather this was an ad hoc sale with no machine around. Or the U.S.-Americans in this story were so entitled they didn't bother getting any euros for their trip. One hears about the latter phenomenon often enough.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Easier to just use a credit card with no foreign currency conversion fee. There are plenty to choose from in the US

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Joke's on them because the USD-EUR exchange rate gave him a lot more.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:39 PM)

Just read an anecdote on Facebook from an Estonian guy who once accepted U.S. dollars on par from some 'Mericans who didn't change their currency when traveling to another country.

I'd say the first volume is the most Meh Transformers comic I've ever read. Reading it I felt like I was skipping a bunch of pages.

Even in the general population there are those who share his views. Probably a significant crossover with the ones who blame Muslims for what happened.

While I have no ties to Ireland, South or North, I have been reassured by many Irish people of the proper rendition.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:54 PM)

Paddy is the diminutive of Pádraig. Patty belongs on a burger.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:53 PM)

PSA to all: the abbreviated name is Paddy's Day or Saint Paddy's Day.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:42 PM)

Another round of U.S.-Americans throwing around Disneyfied Irish symbolism for the sake of getting smashed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:41 PM)

Hooray, it is Lá Fhéile Pádraig / Saint Patrick's Day once again.

Watching Fate/Apocrypha, I still like the female Saber and the female Rider, thou the female Berserker is somewhat attractive, Ruler is nice but those three are just better, Saber for her tom boy personalty, Rider because of her happy go lucky personalty, Berserker, not sure what attacts me aside from the fact she dressed in white with red hair and the grunts she makes!

Huh, I somehow never noticed the anime thread before.

 

Sadly it's come to the point in my life I have to pick and choose what I spend time on/with, so I'm not the biggest anime watcher anymore.

 

All I'm looking at for the moment is Rising of a Shield hero, and Dororo.

 

Dororo because I played the hell out of "Blood Will Tell" for the PS2. Kinda sucks it means I know the basics of the story, but neat seeing the characters in a more fleshed out medium.

 

Recently finished "How Not to Summon a Demon Lord" Which I thought was pretty fun.

 

Then for those of you that know of my anime stream Thursday nights, we're watching "Log Horizon" and "My Love Story" Both which are great.

Still not sure what we'll move on to after one of those ends, though at some point we do plan to show Green Green to demonstrate how NOT to write friends for the main character...

I considered this but genuinely think he means Rider of... Red? Or is that one of the many Servants on the Red faction who just kind of shows up in an arc for a Black faction Servant?

The Autoscorers were not Carol's friends, they were just animated dolls based on various personality traits we are told she has but she never exhibits.

Green Green as a whole sounds terrible so if the friends are specifically bad they must be the literal worst.

 

I think this is the second time this year that I've read about an R18 visual novel getting an R18 OVA series in addition to an 'all ages' anime, though Green Green got a lot of varied OVAs so it must have been popular.

 

The other instance is YU-NO, but the R18 OVA is almost twenty years older than the upcoming 'all-ages' anime.

There is an interesting story in Green Green.

 

I just wish it wasn't told IN Green Green.

 

The friends pretty much ruin the entire show. I'd give anything to get an anime that focuses more on the real plot of the show, and just cut the friends out almost entirely. I mean there is a part in the show where the main guy finally calls them out on their bullshit, and the anime treats it as if the MC is in the WRONG.

 

I ended up buying it to show, and will likely hold on to my copy, but I can't really recommend it. If anyone wants to see the train wreck though I can post in my anime thread in Mayhem when we'll start it for the stream.

Sounds fun.

 

Seems a lot of visual novels have plots like that. You can't recommend the VN versions either since they're almost always full of romance routes that run 30h each and each has about a fifth of the plot.

Star☆Twinkle PreCure had an episode where the lesson was "It's okay to keep things from your parents if you know they won't react well." It's a good lesson, and the character faced with this arc is mature enough to handle this situation, but it feels like a weird lesson for a kid's show (or any show, really).

 

And I mean PreCure keep their identities from their parents the majority of the time but this specifically calls for Actual Real Subterfuge.

 

Which is weird because this is one of the "The villains know who the PreCure are but don't ever target their homes or families or anything." though that seems like this will change next week.

I love Fairy Tail, the openning fight of the latest ep was a riot and had me laughing out loud, sure Fairy Tail might not be the biggest of the shogan format series but I come to love the show for its story of bonds and its action sequences, plus how the comical moments come across on screen, Power scaling might be somewhat wacked at times but the series delivers on good battles and stories, thou I think one of the cleverist parts of Fairy Tail's writing is the seven year time skip and the consqueneces of what happened at the end of the previous arc.

I find it funny that somebody up in the value chain decided that exclusively streaming the second season of One Punch Man on Hulu was a good idea because like, no, it is not.
