2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  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.

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.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 November 2019 - 07:54 AM)

2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

I just finished watching the finally and the first thing that came to mind was "HOLY CRAP!" I had a feeling the island would blow up when the amount of explosives was revealed to been placed across the island but never did I expect to see it go off with the rest of Oilver's friends and sister on it, now I can't wait for season 6, it hopefully get off to a good start. Of the four season finallies for Arrowverse this year, I say Arrow was the best one, since it was closing the five year story of Oilver's past on the island so there will be very little in the way of Flashbacks in next season. I do hope most of the cast actually make it off the island, I doult I'll care for William's mother as she not had much screen time aside from a couple of eps in season 4 and again appearing this season but it would be intersting to see Oilver cope as a father and being mayor on top of being the Green Arrow. The season main villian wasn't to bad but he was best when he wasn't wearing a mask, Slade was a much better villian than Chase was pretty determined to hurt Oilver thou I kind of felt after the ep where he aducted Oilver and subjected he to a lot of pain, I kind of felt his role was pretty much up because he kind of achived his goal which was to break Oilver on a mental level. I somehow think for some reason the Legends will save the team from the island, thou when I saw a vision of the island destruction in my mind it was looking at it from above and seeing the whole island simply explode in two fireballs, that's kind of how I envisioned it happening but then I saw the explosion on screen and the fact the team were on the island, those words just popped into my head.

They'll find a way.

 

As long as Thea is okay I'm good, and I'm betting Malcolm actually managed to save everybody because he never dies.

 

I hadn't thought about it before, but now I do actually want to see Oliver as a father, and all the awkwardness that would create with the new thing with Felicity.

Not too Arrow related but I watched the American Ninja Warrior charity with Amell doing the course. Pretty awesome for him but since I don't follow Ninja Warrior, what happened to Amell in the end?

The course was only six so he finished it successfully but he did the salmon ladder cuz that's was he does in the show. When the announcers said the pegboard was new (the obstacle after the ladder), does that mean there was the rest was not finished? Or Arrow just got tired and just dropped to save face? Was the second part of the course even open during the charity?

Just curious.

So just watched the finale on the CW's website.  Aside from the betrayal's, Oliver's team on the island might have been his best team every as far as knowledge, power and ability goes. So unless we are getting all new sidekicks next year, pretty sure everybody somehow made it off the island in time or found a safe spot. Be kind of hard to keep William out of the loop next year.  Guessing if anybody on the island does die, its going to be Williams mom.  And now, since this show is Batman, William will be like Damian Wayne and become a new Arsenal under Oliver's teaching.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I really hope William's mom doesn't die, because 1. Assuming everyone else on the island survives, Team Arrow would have 3 active parents on it, and that would feel weird to have them all together, clearly more focused on being vigilantes than parents, and 2. There'd be outrage over more "fridging" that'll inevitably get peppered into any discussion during the season.

Now that I think about it, I could see them killing her off too, since her only real scene in the episode was trying to apologize for breaking up Olicity with her nonsense, so that kind of closes the loop on her story... Still hope it doesn't happen though.

I agree with you, I think William's mother will be the one to bite the dust and it fall to Oilver to be his guardian and father, I suspect Felicity will evenly take a motherly role to him while also working as Overwatch, Thea aside from being a aunt to William, I think she will also working in raising William. I think William might start take a interst in his father's nighttime activaties and start learning how to use a bow and training to help his father, at least at first, thou I suspect it be a while before he let into the field along side Oilver and his team

I've started rewatching Arrow; fourteen episodes into season 2:

  • Thea: the best
  • Laurel: the worst
  • Crazy Laurel: Possibly the best thing that has ever happened to Arrow
  • Oliver: "All non-'Saving the City' problems can be solved with a lavish party, I assure you"
  • Crazy Laurel: (to whoever is in her house at the time) "GET OUT!" /throws wine glass

Aside from all that, I'm really surprised at how Mr. Lance is basically my favorite character now. He's basically got the best one-liners so far, and his work with the Arrow is always fun (special mention goes to how well he took the Arrow shooting a lawyer in the shoulder).

 

I've also come to appreciate Sara's character a lot more. Unlike Oliver, she's not a good person at her core. It's not that she feels the world owes her anything, just that she wants to continue surviving however she can, with the people she loves (at least when she comes back).

Why why why why WHY would they format this episode around a story set five months after the island's destruction that gives away the fates of nearly everyone who was on the island when it blew... before the island flashbacks reveal said fates anyway?

Wait ok so throughout the episode they make mention of the time Lance accused Oliver of being the Hood in season one but everyone seems to have totally forgotten the rather large spectacle that was made back in season three when he was accused of being the Arrow which seems odd.

Check out howtohero.tumblr.com where I discuss the finer points of superhero life.
