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.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

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.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

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!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

I finally got around to watching some Persona 4 and I love it to death. I have a dilemma now, though. I've never gotten further than recruiting Rise. I really like the game, but I keep basically drowning in all the choices (who to date, what stats to focus on, time limited events, etc).
Now I have to decide if I want to spoil myself and watch the anime past where I left off, or if I want to hold back and try to finally finish the game.

Anyway, about that anime. One thing that kept me from watching it for a long while was the protagonist's name. I'd gotten used to naming mine after the manga's Seta Souji, so a new one being introduced kind of irked me. I got over it quick once I started the first episode, though. Even with dialogue he feels really close to the game's version (which is to say: Awesome)
I love that they got the main cast back and kept the music straight from the game, though I don't like the new opening song(s). The original is damn catchy, and the others are just sort of there. Bleh.
The changes to the story and battling are pretty well done. I was expecting to go in picking it apart, but I like what they've done for the sake of pacing and action.

I have a few more episodes before I catch up with the game, then I'll have to decide to either keep going or break out the game and try to go at it without annoying myself to death with a faq again.
And if I decide to play, THEN I'll have to decide if I want to continue where I left off or restart so I can use the anime protag's name. icon-ball.gif

Aw come on! I can't be the ONLY Zero no Tsukaima F fan here!

I loved the first season, loved the second season. I will admit the third season was a bit 'too' silly and fanservicy at times.

However season 4 doesn't have that problem. Two episodes in, and the plot has already gone wild! I can't WAIT to see where this goes.

(Also the fanservice seems similar to how it was in the first season. There really hasn't been that much)

It's a secret to everybody

Despite myself, I'm rehooked on Zero. If they can just continue to keep Louise's flaming hellb thing attitude scarce, then it could be quite enjoyable.

I'm really liking Ano Natsu de Matteru. Yeah, it's horribly similiar in ways to Onegai Teacher, but I loved that series, and this one seems fun as well.

Aquarion EVOL looks to be a great show (at least for what it is) judging from the first three episodes. I loved the first series (I just finished it on DVD yesterday), and this may well be better.

Yeah, I figured the girl would already be having some space pirate adventures by now. Compared to Rinne no Lagrannge or Symphogears, very slow. And there's a ton of characters, but most of them are complete blanks so far, so it's not like they're spending all their time with introducing the herd.

Oh well, hopefully it will build up to something awesome.

It's 26 episodes long and following the novel pretty closely.

I'm glad they're taking their time building up the space stuff though.

Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
Heroic Age
Rideback
Shangri-La
Heroman
Tiger & Bunny
Vandread
Star Driver (heir apparent to Gurren Lagann)
Full Metal Panic (though be advised: S2 ["Fumoffu"] is a pretty big tonal shift from serialized dramatic action-comedy to straight-up episodic slapstick --though it is possible to jump right from S1 to S3, since nothing changes in S2.)

It's definitely on Hulu, I just watched the first 3 episodes a few days ago.

From what I saw of it I enjoyed it a lot, it's a super hero show where they're sponsored by companies to basically pay for what ever damages they cause, and the main to keep from being forced to retire has to team up with the newest hero.
