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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 March 2019 - 11:14 AM)

Try their TF/GIJoe comic. I dare you. (I'm sorry in advance.)

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:36 AM)

The second one,has a lot more interesting idea (A unified post war Cybertron, people viewing Optimus differently now the wars over), but in practice it's a disjointed mess.

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:34 AM)

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.

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:32 AM)

You know I've been reading Dreamwave's comics and its not very good.

I don't think even he knows his own views, frankly. What with blaming Spyro and having the Navy Seal copypasta in his so-called manifesto

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:27 PM)

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.

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:25 PM)

It wouldn't surprise (but still disgust) me if there was a part of the prison population who condone or even celebrate his actions.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:55 PM)

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.

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.)

Its a super hero anime from last year that kicked all kinds of butt in story, action and characters.

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.
