It may very well go bad again.  however, sometimes a good story indicates a change in writers and/or the direction of a show.  i'm willing to see if that's the case.  while i think it's generally sucked up to this point, the last episode showed enough promise to make me curious about where they're going.

ouch

but still, they're just playing around.  it's not like they're being shoved down our throats like the Jonas Bros. or a Miley Cyrus.  plus, they may turn out to be good, who knows.  i'm sure a young tom waits would've caused your noggin' to explode at that age, but years later he's a truly unique talent that I admire.

caveat:  you should only rail against child performers if they're packaged as sex symbols by the Disney corporation, and/or they cover Beatles songs. 

These are just kids having some fun.  cut 'em some slack.

two things:

can we all agree that calling me "HepC" is only going to end badly for me?   icon_lol

and secondly, I can't stand Mr. Bean either.  but black adder is so drastically different than that show that it staggers the imagination that it's the same actor.  black adder is a darkly funny show that doesn't rely on pratfalls and funny faces for the majority of it's humor.  

but yeah, it's a comedy so dramatic stories would not be anywhere in sight.   icon_wink

p.s. i second the Carnivale suggestion.  I just have to warn you that it ends rather abruptly with quite a few loose ends.  that may be a bit frustrating after investing two seasons worth of viewing.
7527  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need show, have money on: March 23, 2009, 08:30:57 PM
If you like good comedies, how about the bbc series from years ago starring the guy who went on to play mr. bean and the guy who went on to become house:  black adder?  i think you can get the whole series cheap off ebay and it's well worth it.

along the same lines, check out Red Dwarf for sci fi comedy.

Lost is definitely worth watching. Heroes is backing up on my DVR but I'm pretty sure it will get deleted. I'm also way behind on Sarah Connor - save or delete?

I was just about to give up on Sarah Connor.  I was never a big fan of the show and I felt it was getting sillier by the week.  However, this past Friday night's show was such an incredible departure from the usual angst ridden episodes of Sarah pouting over how badly she feels about John's childhood that I was convinced to give it a stay of execution.  It was almost as if they hired a whole new writing staff that knew how to craft a good story full of action and mystery.

I'll be taking my vacation right here in sunny Chicago.  I plan on watching a bum dry heave in an alley for 20 minutes after an unfortunate encounter with a bottle of Wild Turkey and a stale hot dog, then maybe I'll head over to the south side to watch the Chicago Gang Unit tussle with the Latin Kings.  I'll probably round out the evening by driving down Cicero and waving to all the she male prostitutes who'll wave back to me with only one finger...

Oh and Grim, you and I will permanently disagree on human life being sacred.  No argument will ever convince me it is.  If the humans manage to wipe out our entire planet, I believe that life will start again somewhere else in the universe (if it hasn't already).

In regards to your use of the word "sacred" in this reply, all I can do is quote a famous philosopher who once said, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."   icon_lol

My favorite miniatures game right now is AE-WW2, aka Alternate Event WW2.  A retro scifi WW2 game with pulp scifi elements where the US has tesla energy weapons, rocket troops (Rocketeer), and primitive power armor.  Germans have weird genetic experiments and abominations, and Russians have psionic powers.  It's a skirmish scale game so the cost outset is much smaller than a full game like 40k.

dang it, that sounds like fun...now I'm interested.  my wallet may come to hate you.   icon_razz

I'm way too lazy to skim through this looking for precedent, so I humbly offer up the genius of The Venture Bros. as my pick of a "must have" dvd tv set.  Season 3 is arriving in stores on March 24th, by the way.
7539  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Kings starts Sunday, March 15th on: March 16, 2009, 04:12:23 AM
For some strange reason, I kind of enjoyed it.  Maybe it's the promise of future political intrigue, perhaps it's the presence of Ian, but it interested me enough to want to stay tuned.  I think the history of the war and the characters was purposely left vague in order to provide future stories.  I wasn't big on the whole premise of why the war was extended, but hopefully that will thread will fade into the background.

I buy anything with the word "Sandalwood" in it.  I'm utterly addicted to that scent.  If this makes me less of a man, so be it.  Although I suspect that if I were any less of a man in the eyes of you losers, I'd be bearing children at this point. 

I tried Axe, but it tasted funny.

There are so many "Kim vs. The Cougar" episodes these last two seasons that anything Fuller does short of having the entire cast killed off and replaced with hand puppets can only be an improvement.

I have Fatal Frame 2 (which is on the list) for the xbox.  It's backwards compatible with the 360 and I've started it a few times.  I really do need to go back and finish it.

Excellent, thanks guys!

Last night I started up a grand campaign with Austria and this time I'm taking it nice and slow.  I'm still confused by politics in the game, but I'm enjoying it a bit more than I did when I tried playing the Ottoman Empire.  Is there any sites with game info/suggestions that anyone recommends?
7557  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Empire:Total War] - Strategy fans should love on: March 11, 2009, 01:17:29 AM
Well, I dove back in tonight after work and I'm trying to give it a fair chance.  It's entirely possible I haven't played long enough to see where the game shines over MW2 or Rome. 

couple of questions though:

1) I don't understand trade theatres.  I can pull them up on the radar map on the bottom left hand side of the screen, but I don't know how to get my trade galleon down there. 

2) when I click on some of my cities/towns, I see the green overlay for my region, but what significance is the red overlay that appears in some areas that overlap any neighboring nation's area?

I honestly think they dropped the ball on the manual, by the way.  Previous games have done a far better job of explaining the game in their documentation.
7558  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Empire:Total War] - Strategy fans should love on: March 10, 2009, 01:51:49 PM
