@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

Who else watched this? I thought it was good, curious to see where it goes. The only thing I really know about the character is what Ive seen in Smallville, Justice Leauge and Young Justice, never read any of the comics. Has DC/CW come out and said anything about what has already been established in Smallville with the Green Arrow character? Also, why is it not Justin Hartley playing the role? It seems like CW was really wanting him with trying him out as Aquaman and then giving him the Green Arrow roll on Smallville.

I watched it. Kinda felt hokey in bits. Like when it turned out that the initial arrow attack against the rich guy's guards only put them into the hospital. Really? Because they looked kinda dead to me.

Also, I don't get why Ollie had to make up the Green hood in that first battle, since it was legitimate self defense (up until that last guy, but if he went the legitimate route, he wouldn't have had to kill him). And well, because his fingerprints would be over everything, if this was reality.

As for Smallville, I think I read on Ain't it Cool news that there is no connection & this is it's own thing.

But hey, yeah Dresden... Erm, I mean Blackstone. (Paul Blackstone played Harry Dresden in the SciFi series The Dresden Files, based on the books.)

Eh, not sure since I don't have this on DVR & might have missed that bit. I think I started watching a few minutes late. Still, did they show any other people on that island? Because, I've a hard time believing that Ollie would develop all his skills, just him on his lonesome on that island.

Is that who's mask it was supposed to be? I just thought of it as head on a stick, guess I should of paid more attention. I did read on www.superherohype.com that the King was cast for the Royal Flush Gang. here

Again, not the most knowledgeable on DC comics, but from what I saw of them in the Justice Leauge: Doom cartoon I like them.

It was good enough that I'll watch episode 2....the dialog was stilted, and the main actor was pretty much charisma-less, and has the emotional range of the girl from Twilight.

Eh not much different than Smallville at times. They really need to find another mansion to use though. For not tying into Smallville using the same mansion that Lex lived in for the Queens estate is kinda funny. But then again we could have a bunch of mutants running around too icon-fire.gif

But lets see we already have some forms of Speedy, Merlyn, and Canary. Slade mask on a stick too. Like that they aren't shy enough to bring in some more comic references already.

I don't know a lot about Green Arrrow's back story in the comics. Were both parents killed off? If this is changed, I was wondering if they were just trying to make him a bit more different than Batman. I do know there have been some similarities between the two, except GA isn't as apparently dark.

I kind of liked it. I am glad that this isn't connected to Smallville, because they had pretty much written Ollie into a corner on that show. There is a lot of stuff going on. It's hard to tell who Ollie can trust and who the less obvious bad guys are. Should we trust the step father? Heck should we trust the mother? Is this family more like the Luthors, except with the mom being the bad one? Or is something else going on with the mom? Too early to tell. I'm going to keep watching.

I think that it's a bit interesting that we don't automatically know whose side everyone is on. Though this could read like a soap opera, but comics in general can be like that too.

Yo, hug Smallville. That jive was terrible. Perhaps worse than the Adventures of Lois and Clark. Perhaps worse than Superman 3 and 4. Although we were all younger people when it came out so we didn't notice, but if they took the same production values and put them on a new show without something we're as eager to see, we'd all laugh at it. To prove my point: Aquaman!

Will watch Arrow later.

From panel:

Royal Flush gang, most members wear hockey masks.

Guy with big eye monocle sight type thing, Deadshot? Can't think of the guy from Arkam Asylum exactly.

They said that Roy Harper might show up, when somebody asked.

Pointed out that Speedy crushed the pill with an award for archery.

Called him Deathstroke, not Slade.
