Spoiler for Hiden:
Note to Daphne:  While hiding on a ridge above an enemy encampment filled with soldiers armed with rifles, it's in your best interest to avoid standing straight up in the middle of a clearing on that ridge while loudly announcing your plans to everyone else around you...who, by the way, had enough sense to stay in a crouched position.

..oh well, at least I don't have to keep grinding my teeth whenever you did that extremely annoying head tilt whenever someone addressed you.  It always reminded me of



But I will miss your fantastic rack.

But back on topic.  While I'm not convinced the show can be salvaged, I still believe they're off in the right direction this time.  They've simplified the story, brought characters back to their roots and they've given us a lot of shots of Claire and Nikki running towards the camera.

Seems they put out some new clearance items over the last week or so.

At lunch today I scored a copy of Mercs 2 for the 360 for 15 bucks, as well as a copy of Too Human for the 360 for 20 bucks. Not a bad haul for about 2/3rds the price of a new game.

I also saw a ton of copies of Fracture for the 360 for around 20 smackers, Batman Lego for the 360 for 25 dollars and a bunch of ps3 games that I didn't pay much attention to.

The reports of her income are confusing. There was mention of her being on disability for an injury at a womens prison clinic where she worked. She probably made pretty good money prior to that as California pays prison workers real well.
However none of this explains how she paid what could have been a hell of a lot of money for the procedure, twice.

Of course, she lives at home. You make $75,000 a year and live at home you could possibly save a hell of a lot of money.

As for supporting the kids now. She talks about going back to school to get her masters. How does she afford to do that while raising 14 kids?

There is still alot of stuff here that has not come out and does not make sense.

you had me at "women's prison"....

I'm going to give the movie a chance.  I know changing the ending has some folks up in arms, but Snyder did such a great job with Dawn of the Dead (something I thought would really, really suck) and made 300 so much fun that I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. 

I see him in the same way I see Del Toro and Jackson:  they all love the source material so much that when they put something out, you can really see the affection in every frame.  Of course, I realize that no amount of love for the genre can change a crappy director into a good one, but if a good director really enjoys what he's doing, I think it adds that much more quality to the project.

I dont really remember that first one but I do remember Dyna girl smile And Shazam..I loved watching it when it was paired with Isis.



Bigfoot and Wildboy was the heartwarming story of a young boy who was abandoned by his family and then raised in the wilds by what is apparently a middle aged Greek guy.



As for Isis...hubba hubba   icon_eek  can't believe i forgot that little hunk of loveliness.

Haven't done the facebook thing because I have this sneaking suspicion that the cut off age is around 39.  After that you go from "participant" to "predator".

To my continual bemusement, I find both Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler hilarious.  I think it's the times they go OFF script that makes them funny to me.  They both have a love of non sequiturs that I find appealing.  Watch the extras on the Talledega Nights dvd for the fake public announcements that Ferrell and Reilly ad libbed for an example...or not, if you really hate those guys.   icon_wink

That being said, I'll probably netflix this one.  The original series never featured Holly in a bikini for my early teenage crush fulfillment, so I equate the show with frustration at this point.   Tongue

We use Windows Mobile phones at work and I've been pretty happy with them so far.  From a support standpoint, I don't have to do much with them.  Just enable them at the Exchange server and off my folks go.  I personally use a Motorola Q (9c).  While I still have folks that complain they want a Blackberry, we haven't decided to support them yet.  I do have a user with an iphone that works great with my Exchange server, though.

I think it's also indicative of just how much everyone despised the first half of this season when you see how every character has basically returned to acting the way they did last season.

Spoiler for Hiden:
This is seriously the ONLY thing you need to know from the first half of the season:  Senator Patrelli wants to round up all the muties and keep them away from normal folks.  He believes he's doing the right thing.

Really, that's all you need to know.  The first half of the season was monumentally, earth shatteringly, horrendously bad.

7579  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Heroes Season 3 (spoilers for our less fortunate European friends) on: February 03, 2009, 08:19:22 PM
It seemed like an honest attempt to get back on track.  I'm giving it some time to ramp up due to the fact that it's going to take a herculean effort on the part of the writers to get out from under the humongous amount of crap that was heaped on the story in the first half of this season.  The good news is that they seem to be focused on moving forward and forgetting most of what happened, or simply letting it rest in the past without bringing it up again like an uncle who the rest of the family knows may have been the Zodiac Killer, yet they can't bring themselves to ever talk about it...except for that one time when your cousin Sandy mentioned something about it at Easter brunch and then "went away on a lifelong fishing trip" the next day without saying goodbye.

...but I digest.

I actually liked the first episode with Fishburne as a CSI. They explained stuff they never did in the first 6-7 years of the show. I still wince everytime they have a police action and the CSI team is on the front line. Reality is not he most important thing here.

Do they even issue CSI's a sidearm in RL?  I thought in the first few seasons that the team always had to wait for Brass to send in uni's to clear areas because they didn't have guns.  Now I always see the old lady on the team packin' heat like she's Dirty Harry's grandmother.

I made it to the scene in which she decides jousting a guy who, it is presumed, knows how to ride a horse, is a good idea.  They then flash to a close up of her face which immediately gives me the impression that the makers weren't even interested in trying to make it look like she was actually in the scene in question.  At that point I realized I could be doing something more productive with my life...like looking straight up for the next two hours while humming, "Jumping Jack Flash" over and over again.

There's absolutely no reason this woman couldn't go out and buy a copy of Windows Vista and get it installed on her computer system after the fact, so I have zero sympathy for her. She's looking to blame others for her problems - plain and simple. Just because you can't figure out how to use the microwave, it's not Best Buy's fault for selling you the microwave.

She might not have had the money.  Also, your analogy is a bit unfair.  There's a bit of difference between hitting a few numerals on a keypad and then pushing a big button that reads "COOK", and installing an OS on a computer.  The way you describe the sales rep makes me sympathize all the more with her, to be honest.

As long as these purchasable items do not hobble the base game with their absence, I don't understand why it's so upsetting?  You can choose to buy them, or you can choose not to.  When I buy a hot fudge sundae, I will sometimes opt out of the nuts and whip cream expansion pack.  I don't then leap over the counter and beat the crap out of the guy manning the scoop because he had the audacity to try and charge me more for this add on. 

edit:  of course, if i was offered an ELITE nuts package, I might be tempted.  That would just be too sweet to pass up.

stopped at one today and they only had two copies of GH: aerosmith for the ps3 @ $50.  nothing else for any system this gen. 

I know they have it at BB for 49.99 for the 360, so I'm assuming they have it for the ps3 at that price as well.  They also have GHIII for the 360 for 39.99 (the bundle with the Les Paul wireless) for 39.99.  I picked up the latter more out of curiosity.  I've always been curious about the attraction of the GH style games.  I figured for less than the price of a controller, I can now find out.

edit: i was wrong... it's actually 39.99

edit 2:  whoops, i may have misread your post and thought you were looking for this.

It suffered from the Twin Peaks syndrome.  Twin Peaks was initially written down on paper from start to finish as a one season show.  There was no expectation that it would go beyond that.  When "Twin Peaks Fever" hit, it took everyone by surprise.  Naturally, the network wanted to drain as much cash out of this as possible, so they had the writers go back and rework it into a multi-season show.  When season two began to show signs of half-ass work and the audiences began to drift away, they ended it.

Prison Break was great for one season...maybe two.  Beyond that it was like keeping a favorite grandfather on life support, even though he was suffering and longed for death.
