That it's available only in Canada but not here in the states is just further proof that Canada is a second class citizen in the eyes of corporate America. 

But seriously, I feel the need to apologize to Canada for the film.  Not only was it friggin' awful, it also features Mark Wahlberg.  That's like putting a razor blade in a candy apple, then putting that inside a bomb and hiding it in a teddy bear.

MANIMAL!!!!!!

Audiences the world over had so many unanswered questions after it ended.  I know I would love to get some closure.

You want closure.  Try being a fan of The Phoenix.  And what happened to the Misfits of Science?

When I was a kid, my friends and I watched the Phoenix each week. I remember the highlight was an episode in which he levitated a box of kittens out of a fire or something.  But while doing so, you could clearly see the cables they used to make it fly.  Ah, childhood.

You should check out Rick and Morty, and The Venture Bros.

Does Rick get less irritating after the first episode?

Honestly, I recorded all of the episodes because of Dan Harmon, but I haven't been able to watch more than the first one because that dude is just...blech.

One man's "blech" is another man's treasure.  Rick is an out-frigging-standing character.  I think he's perfect the way he is.  He's the sleazy, selfish version of Doc Brown that we all secretly wished for while watching Back to the Future all those years ago...well, those of us with borderline sociopathic tendencies, anyway.

But to answer your question:  no, he (thankfully) never changes.  I would say go ahead and free up your DVR space.   icon_wink

p.s. I still find it hilarious that Jim Rash (the Dean) has an Academy Award sitting at home, and he still loves doing stuff like Community and Mike Tyson's Mysteries.

Although, I'm guessing just having an Oscar doesn't automatically mean you're in demand in Hollywood.

Done...of course, with your quote still having them out there for all the world to see, it's probably not going to help much.   Tongue

Sorry, yeah...Purge has a point.  Enjoy being surprised by this stuff later after you watch the episodes.

Some folks complained that the first few episodes weren't that funny, but I thought they were quite good.  However, once the cast has had time to gel and come together, it's non-stop funny. 

...except for the season which will not be named.  You can skip that season.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Season 4...ugh, I hate even saying it.
10  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [NBC] Community on: March 23, 2015, 06:19:44 PM
If you even remotely find any of the shows you listed funny, you will experience comedy bliss while watching Community.  If you're also a bit of a nerd, you will probably pass out from laughing at some point.

Spoiler for Hiden:
p.s. be prepared to rewind a lot.  There's a LOT of stuff that whizzes by fast, or won't be immediately apparent.  And even more stuff that pays off later...sometimes even years later.

It's Gary Shandling's Show was arguably one of the most innovative, influential sitcoms in the history of comedy.  I remember being in awe of the show when I first saw it.  Of course, I later found out it was something that had already been done (in a more subdued manner) by The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, as well as The Jack Benny show.  But at that time in television, it was utterly unlike anything else.
12  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [NBC] Community on: March 23, 2015, 05:09:02 PM
Pillows and Blankets is my favorite episode of all time.  When Pierce submits his plans for the Pillow Man, make sure you pause and read them.  They're freakin' hysterical.

And this the theme to Gary's show.

Moffat is now the producer of the show, such was his rise over there.  There are positives and negatives to that, though.

Mostly negatives for me.  I freakin' loved his Who stories in the earlier seasons.  When it was announced he was taking over, I was sure this signaled a golden age for the show.  But the last few years he's just been churning out crap, or approving crap, as the case may be at times.  What the hell happened to the man??

I think comics in general are in a precarious position in the publishing world.  They're still flashy enough to attract kids and teens, but they're often aimed at older audiences.  So they walk a very fine line sometimes.

I had never heard of Playstation Vue.  Sounds like a great idea...if it weren't 50 bucks for the lowest plan.  I'll give the free trial a try, but there's no way I'm going back to paying almost cable level costs for tv again.

Check isthereanydeal.com and setup an alert.  That's what I did and I got ESO for 17 bucks about two weeks ago when gamesrocket.com had it on sale for 24 hours.

They're partially right.  Slavery was only part of the reason for the Civil War.  I do have to add I'm not sure how you can draw a comparison between what I wrote and what they believe.  I'm not saying that gay rights were coming anyway and we shouldn't have done anything to help it along.  

If you look back at Civil Rights, Women's Suffrage, etc., they all gradually came into being (and I might add, through the work of great individuals).  At no point was there an overnight proclamation from the general populace supporting these things.  Change that happens quickly has a tendency not to last, I believe. Change needs to gradually work its way into the public consciousness.   I wish that wasn't the case and we could accept such things quickly, but the first impulse by most is to kick back against societal changes that they don't initially agree with.  

Real change takes time.  Period.

This sucks.  I can't find a SXSW thread so I can complain about SXSW, and the fact that a freaking stage lighting company showed up at my neighbors *house* the other day.

Are you still mad the spotlight isn't going to be on you??  I've told you before:  a one man show called "Geezer Eats Stuff and Looks at a Birdhouse" is NOT a good idea for an off broadway production!
24  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Gay Marriage and the Churches on: March 18, 2015, 05:18:10 PM
I've come to the conclusion that "ripping the bandage off" is not the way to go about change in our society.  It happens gradually.  Hopefully they'll (and others)  will continue to grow in the direction that I think any just and compassionate God would approve.

Yup, Yahoo Screen is not what I would call user friendly.  I still can't figure out if they offer subtitles.  I like to use that option with shows like Community because the jokes can fly by very quickly.

I really want a remake of Blade Runner with Leonard as Roy Batty.

Just watched both new episodes and loved them.  They're heavy on the meta...much more so than previously...but still a lot of fun.  Porteguese Gremlins was great.  And Chang stole every scene he was in.

The juxtaposition of Eugene and Nicholas was heavy handed in this episode, but still great.  Eugene thinks he's a coward and isn't afraid to vocalize it, while Nicholas pretended to be braver than he really was.  When it came time to prove their claims, both men failed spectacularly.  In the case of Eugene, it showed everyone that he's a much better man than he lets on, while Nicholas...well...you know.

p.s. "I gotta send a fax to Cleveland" will forever be a part of my vocabulary.

The overlords have been notified.  FishPants is on vacation, however, so I do not yet have an expected resolution time.  Unless someone wants to go retrieve him.

Poor fishpants.  As a fellow IT minion, I can attest that the moment you go on vacation, something will break.  It's like clockwork.

Yeah I'm also not sure what's going on with the priest story arc.  I totally don't remember what happened with him in the comic, but I never had the impression he went bonkers like this.

I think you need to reread the comics then.   icon_wink

Noah's death hit me harder than I expected.  The actor who played him has been a favorite of mine since his days on Everybody Hates Chris.  He made Noah his own and it was heartbreaking to see him go out like that after such a poignant scene at the beginning of the episode.   icon_cry

The difference between the public reaction to the iPad versus the iWatch is that there was at least SOME recognition of what the iPad was good for.  

p.s. don't expect the iWatch to replace your phone unless you want to recharge it every 3 hours.
