  1. Lady is good, we live together now and she helps keep me leveled and the bills paid. But yeah, it’s mostly the strike. 130 days, savings about gone, and the sun and heat are not my pals.
  2. I’m a bestseller now so I take it all back. (kidding… sorta… Odine is 100% correct.)
  3. Tank


    I’ve been playing Mass Effect Legendary with Mods (which has been amazing, ME3 is completely different experience) as a build up for Star Field. I too am hoping there’s a solid community patch mod soon to fix the usual “Bathesda jank” as one review put it.
  4. Not like, suicide done, but like… done trying? I’m tired. I’m almost 50. I have no savings or assets, some years I make six figures, some years I make nothing. My kid had moved out. My health is meh. I just want to eat snacks and watch movies and not work.
  5. I’d love to see a dark side apprentice be turned good.
  6. And Shin Hati? More like Shin Hottie.
  7. If they are explanation force ghosts with the time travel place... I just don't know. It tracks...but also, fuck off.
  8. My point was, why not take an X-Wing out?
  9. I did a Porky's marathon recently. The don't hold up great, shockingly.
  10. Sam Witwer was spotted in the credits under a random sound heading. The guy is an accomplished VO artist and has done Maul, Palpatine, and lots of other random voices. Given the sound design cues at play, he could have just been a recycled bit somewhere— —or maybe “Merrick” is he, and maybe he is Starkiller.
  11. That’s a GOOD post. Get out of here.
  12. You want a bad post? Here’s a bad post. Ready? STAR WARS
  13. James Horner gotta Horner. Dropping the Reliant’s shields and Ripley spacing the alien queen are nearly identical.
  14. Hahaha she wasn’t born a man! This is rumor gossip as old as Richard Gere and hamsters, and it was never that she was male. At best she was born a chromosomal or literal hermaphrodite who had corrective surgery, but even those theories have never been confirmed by anyone.
  15. Which of course leads to the inherent problem with inbetweenquels, prequels, sequels 30 years after the fact, and what not. But again, they could have used that BOBF Luke/Ahsoka scene here and solved everything.
  16. I don’t know if it is Ezra, Giloni wouldn’t Anakin one of his own characters… but it def has the vibes of being a reveal in the making.
  17. It's also the Anti-Andor in that it's working overtime to be OMG WE A STAR WAR. I really don't want to be a jaded Star Wars guy... but I think I am. If Rebels (which I mostly loved) had come out post ROTJ, and I got this series I would have loved it so much. But now I'm feeling like this is just another over-produced fan film. There's things I love (like the design, and the basic story), but things I hate (how clean and sterile it is). Mostly, I really REALLY hate that the Luke/Ahsoka scene was a wasted random drop in Book of Boba Fett when it would have made sense here. At this point in the timeline, it REALLY have a rough time buying there being any Jedi action happening no mention or appearance of Luke, and no New Republic politic stuff without Mon Mothma or Leia. (I'm sure we'll get Mothma at some point). Anyway-- I'm being fussy. The magic is just gone for me, but I'm still in.
  18. Cobweb fell apart after a strong open. Feel like there was a lot of studio interference. I could tell some scenes were order of order, and they really needed more money to sell the monster. Great Halloweeny vibes though.
  19. I remember this one-- doesn't hold up as well as other 80s horror films. If you want a better, but still low-key, obscure, and lesser known anthology from the same time, try Stephen King/s Cat's Eye, which was totally overshadowed by Creepshow.
  20. ...if I had a nickel...
  21. Stop. You had me bush. I'm sold.
  22. Depending on which seasons and specific stories, SNW is about 7-8 years before TOS. Overall it fits timeline continuity-- Discovery was said to be 100 years after ENT and 100 years before TNG, and a decade before TOS, that means 2255, as TOS s1 was 2265. Pike was introduced in season 2 of Discovery, taking emergency command to help them look for Spock, both of whom were technically already on the Enterprise. This is 2256. SNW S1 was concurrent with DIS S3, so that would be 2257. So SNW S2, is likely 2257-2258ish. TOS S1 was 2265, so again, about 7-8 years. More nerd math-- In the DIS S2 episode "If Memory Serves" things sort of cross over with the OG Trek pilot The Cage, which is a little apocryphal in its complete form, but footage was used for the TOS episode The Menagerie, which is where the scarred no-talking Pike in a box thing was established. The episode uses footage of Leonard Nimoy and Jeffrey Hunter (the original Pike) from The Cage as a fun homage, but they don't say exactly when it was that the Enterprise had that mission. (And obviously they used the Cage to cast half the characters of SNW). But, The Menagerie takes place in 2267 and Spock says the mission was in 2254. That's a difference of 13 years, that would put that mission a year before S1 of Disco, which tracks storywise. They are fudging the ages of some of the characters, which, they can kinda do because difference sources have listed different birth dates for the TOS characters. Example, most sources say Uhura was born in 2240, making her 25 in TOS S1, which means in SNW she would be 18 at best, and while young, she's older than that.
  23. I keep hearing that it’s the horniest game ever.
  24. I think you’re being a little over the top, but I get it. The continuity bothers me as a fan even if as a TV writer I get. The Spock issue they inherited from Discovery. Pike and Spock were extended guest stars but everybody screamed for it to be a show. I don’t think it’s a disservice to Nimoy, but he doesn’t feel very Spock me. Uhura isn’t offensive at all as a performance, she’s very true to the character, I just think her age isn’t quite right. Chapel I don’t care how out of continuity it is because the actress is as hot as the sun and can do whatever she wants. I feel like I already got over the recasting 15 years ago with the Abrams movie, and this show is a thousand times better than it was. This is most true to Trek show since the 90s.
  25. Ep 3 has an interesting line randomly dropped in it about alternate timelines and futures. It actually has a pretty big ramification for continuity…
