1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Books Read 2017: Better Late Than Never Edition on: April 28, 2017, 05:30:26 PM
We moved to a bedroom community a couple years ago. They have no library system, and I'd have to pay a yearly cost to use the nearby cities.

Luckily, I used to live near the HQ of Half Price Books. I have over two full bookshelves full of stuff I haven't read, so I'll be reading my own stuff for the foreseeable future.

There's a Psycho Pass game...?

Is that a thing from some other media?

It's an anime where everyone in Japan is routinely scanned for their mental health. As in, walk down a public street, the government knows if something's bothering you. If your score or color gets out of bounds, you are marked as a latent criminal and pre-emptively arrested.

Some of these latent criminals are given the opportunity to work for the cops as hunters/profilers in order to track those down that have slipped trough the cracks.

I watched the first season on Netflix when it was available. Apparently it's had a couple more and a film.

TV Insider

Quote
Viewers watching ABC Family at 11/10c encounter one of TV’s most jarring program transitions. That’s when the network flips from edgy, young fare, like Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters and upcoming new series Shadowhunters, to the televangelism of The 700 Club’s Pat Robertson.

It’s TV whiplash, and even as ABC Family changes its name to Freeform on Jan. 12, there’s little the network and parent Disney/ABC can do about it.

“They don’t promote it, they don’t lead up to it,” one insider says of how Disney/ABC deals with 700 Club. “It’s just this little island. They treat it like an infomercial.”

ABC Family/Freeform began in 1977 as CBN, part of Robertson’s religious mission. By the late 1980s, the channel had gone mainstream and adopted the name The Family Channel. The network became too profitable to remain a part of Robertson’s nonprofit CBN, and was spun off in 1990 as International Family Entertainment.

At the same time, CBN and IFE struck a deal to keep The 700 Club on the network in desirable time slots. Robertson sold the Family Channel to Fox Kids in 1997, keeping the stipulation that CBN can program The 700 Club on the channel, no matter its name, in perpetuity.

When Disney/ABC bought Fox Family Channel for $5.3 billion in 2001, it too was saddled with that agreement. The deal says The 700 Club can’t be buried in the middle of the night, but must air during certain dayparts.

The 700 Club airs in the morning at 10/9c and nightly at 11/10c. That late night slot, in particular, has become a desirable time period for cable networks–but with The 700 Club there, it prevents ABC Family/Freeform from developing a late night franchise.
...
According to insiders, Disney has approached Robertson in the past about buying him out and removing 700 Club from ABC Family. But the price he’s requesting is astronomical. CBN’s most recent tax audit claims that its airtime on ABC Family/Freeform is worth $42.4 million annually. CBN pays Disney/ABC around $1.2 million a year to cover the direct costs incurred by ABC Family for giving up the program time.

A nonprofit religious organization, CBN’s total assets are worth more than $320 million. “It’s shocking how much money they make off that show,” says one insider. “They are tough, shrewd businessmen.”
