It's also possible that MitD isn't so much deliberately trying to derail Team Evil so much as he's stupid, childish, and impulsive. He could have just decided that painting 'X's on doors was fun, so he did it a couple more times when Xykon et al were not looking.

I disagree. A lot of his actions are way too deliberate for that.

Hmmm, I wonder if the MitD subconsciously used a power to pick the wrong door.

I get the impression that he is intentionally picking the wrong door.

Finally getting around to watching Bodacious Space Pirates. Its awesome, but I keep having to convince my female friends they would love it. There is practically 0 fan service relative to what the name would imply.

Besides, is "witch" even considered a slur? It's an offense, of course, but I don't think it's "heavy" enough to be considered a slur... It's not like the OP called them "the C word".
"Witch" is often used as a more acceptable placeholder for a word that is very similar but begins with a B. Not always of course, but it is certainly done.

Guessing that is a regional thing, cause I can't say I have ever heard it used that way.

Ugh, sorry for coming back into this thread, I know I probably should not be here, but, ugh, I am so mad. Livid.

These damn republican states suing the federal government to oppose the president's order that schools should let students use the bathroom that they identify with is just asinine.

Nothing says douchebag more than some old person saying
"hey, you know what? I hate the president and love my party so much that I am going to make sure that we come down hard on kids who are already going through the hardest time in their lives."

What the...mfff, urrr, mmmmm Who are the idiots who think they are actually protecting anyone, and not actually causing more harm. GOD this makes me angry.

Yeah Comic Book movies can't sustain this. They'll wind down just like Swords and Sandals, Disaster Movies, Westerns etc. did. I hope the MCU continues though.

I wouldn't mind if they had half the run that Westerns did.

And on the flipside, having taken an intense liking for something often leads to overlooking its flaws, and feeling the need to defend it even where it's not warranted.

Fact of the matter is, some characters were not well written. In Howard Stark's case, it was an amusing sort of 2D character. In others...not so much.

Likewise with the occasional clunker of a line.

That doesn't mean the final product wasn't good, or the writers were incompetent. It means it wasn't perfect, and the flaws bothered some more than others.

Why does being a 2D character make you not well written? Especially for a tertiary character.

It doesn't, in itself necessarily. That's why I'm fine with Stark.

Captain whatsisface though I take issue with. He has one character trait and it's "I'm a dick". And yet the show spends waaay too much time following him.

I think you watched a completely different show than I did.

If Agent Carter was too "girl power" then I'd hate to see what they thought about Supergirl. :P

I actually like the Supergirl show a LOT. I agree with the issue being the writing, but I give higher props to Supergirl.

In Supergirl, Cat Grant is an overbearing obnoxious girl power fanatic... but that's kind of her thing. She's a secondary character who offers advice once in a while... but she's not the actual focus.

Supergirl gets looked down on... but it's not JUST because she's a girl... She's also disrespected because she's young... she's inexperienced, she makes legitimate mistakes, and she's being compared to SUPERMAN... It's a tough shadow to step out of. And of course while they disrespect her as a hero... people are still terrified of her because she's an all powerful alien. In fact that's always been General Lane and Max Lord's point of view... Alien = Bad... not Woman = weak.

With Carter she's one who REPEATEDLY would defend her awesomeness and the awesomeness of women everywhere through terrible dialogue and surrounded by stupid menfolk who can't accomplish anything without her...

It got tedious. I still think that if they brought in the Howling Commandos... started up SHIELD and been a team of awesome guys AND awesome Gals all doing Awesome stuff, it would have been great.

They could even have her take advantage of the Male dominated society... but c'mon... The SSR knew EXACTLY who she was and what she was capable of. The whole Captain America thing was all SSR, and she was their eyes on the ground the whole time. If they REALLY believed her to be some weak useless woman... they would have kept back with the civilians in the first place and never sent her to front lines. THAT wasn't realistic for 1940's.

I really will miss having another Marvel show to watch during the Agents of SHIELD off season...

I wonder what they're going to come up with for those months...

Spoken like someone who has never talked to women who had jobs before the men came back from the war. Seriously, it was a huge deal that women entered into fields for the first time because of the war, then when the soldiers came back competent women who had proven themselves were pushed out of jobs they had held for years. Ignoring that fact would make it a terrible period piece.

From what I understand, the a large portion of death metal singers are classically trained in opera, with some of them being quite well known for it. A lot of death metal bands started as offshoots of symphonies.

I know people IRL that can swim in platemail, so the idea that relatively high level Paladins can do it (or at least the one whose career is based around the water) can doesn't surprise me.

It's a black Sabbath song but that's beside the point.

It's a generational identification, I think. As a stereotypical 90s kid, marvels most identifiable characters were unequivocally Spider-Man and the X-Men. This is almost purely due to the weekly awesome cartoons of both. Every boy I knew watched them. We collected xmen and Spider-Man trading cards. I even bought a few spider man comics even though i had 0 comic interest.

There were half a dozen 16bit era spider man games and as many xmen games. Yeah we may have seen hulk Thor or iron man as a cameo, but that's all they were was secondary.

The late 90s came and gave us the before mcu movies. Then Ang Lee's hulk put him into the forefront again. And we had the raimi spidey films. And the singer x trilogy.

For me and my ilk, it's only spider man and the X-Men. Cap and iron man and hulk popularities are all products of the recent films.

During that same time though, dc kept pumping Batman thru the movies and superman in video games.

As another 90s kid who didn't really read comics, I will totally agree. X-Men were huge, Spider Man was less for me but I knew people into him. Batman was amazing. Cartoon exposure was everything, and those were the big 3.

Why are you sad? If you don't like the character, just don't watch the show.

Because Punisher works amazingly as a reoccurring antagonist and really s$#~tily as a protagonist. By giving him his own show, they eliminate their ability to use him as the former.

Considering a lot of the recently locked threads are similar to topics that have been discussed here in the past, I think a lot of it has to do with the current tone outside of the site and not wanting the flamewar to expand here.

I love the idea. Not sure about implementation, will need to look it over more.

One of the most frustrating things I have found in game is trying to play an enchanter. Charm Person is a completely worthless spell in almost all circumstances. Trying to play a manipulator is impossible if everyone around you realizes that someone just got magically whammied by you.

So I started watching Erased ("Boku Dake ga Inai Machi") last night. I only planned on watching one or two episodes, but the series hooked me so hard that I ended up watching the entire thing in one sitting. It was just that good.

Honestly, I'm not sure it is the best series to blitz. Waiting time between episodes allowed the suspense to build pretty well.

But yes, definitely is that good.

This is a terrible president for freedom of the press.

I know it's popular to blame Obama for everything up to including hurricanes, but I fail to see the applicability here. Gawker made the unethical decision to post publicly a video that should have been left private. They then made the arrogant move of ignoring a judicial order to have them taken down. It wasn't until AFTER that process that Hogan launched his lawsuit.

Freedom of the Press is an important ideal, but you're seriously picking both the wrong battlefield, and the wrong side here.

Judging from the context of Caineach's quote, I'd imagine he meant "precedent" and got sneak-attacked by auto-correct.

That is correct

I disagree that the video should have been left private, and the initial judicial order was wrong. Choosing to post a newsworthy video should never put a news organization in the position of defending itself from a lawsuit.

Freehold you will be disappointed too... not for the same reasons I was. I know how much you love fanservice and there isn't any to be found here. No it's just a couple episodes where they portray polygamy as this amazing situation. Well no. Even the apostles of Lord Jesus said during an age when it was not only legal but globally accepted; they said polygamy is a horribly unfair and unequal situation to place women in. So they started the ban on polygamy for good reason.

I feel I should elaborate more on the child soldier disappointment. It isn't new to Gundam to use children as warriors. But this show seems to take it to a whole new level. The whole platoon is child warriors... sticking it to their elders. But every time some adult reacts with horror to the child soldier situation they are downright dismissive of the sorrow. I guess that is the part that rubs me wrong... don't be so dismissive. Let the horror of what these kids have had to endure sink in. People should be horrified by it.

Knowing a couple dozen people in loving, stable polyamorous relationships, I have to say I find this comment very disturbing.

Having watched the whole show in one sitting, overall I really liked it. I thought the disjunction between the 2 threads worked really well to tell a story about how he is failing to juggle the different aspects of his life together.

I gotta agree with the OP. A lot of the messageboards may as well be a wasteland. It takes a lot of scrolling (to the point it's easy to overlook things) to get to different topic areas. It's especially noticeable as ugly and flawed when you have to trudge through all the old playtest headers.

A good forum would be something like the one at Giant in the Playground where stuff is neatly organized, easy to find, and has sensible subforums.

And for the love, a decent formatting and editing system would be a godsend. :|

personally, I find GitP to be much less usable than the Paizo forums. Paizo has probably my favorite forum navigation.

2 friends recommended Erased separately, 1 of which gives anime recommendation panels at cons. After the first 3 episodes, I have to say it is pretty awesome.

If the real one claims to have created us then we should accept that. If evolution was God's tool to craft us as it seems to be the case, then it does nothing to lessen God's majesty.

Love how they shut down the fan theory.

Personally, I am not a fan of skill unlocks being class specific. The whole point of skills are that they are something anyone can do. I think they should be vastly enhanced in terms of strength (half the rogue talents should just be acrobatics skill checks with increased DCs, and a rogue talent could be +10 to a skill). Fighters should get more skills, and I could see limiting bonus skills from int to a reduced set, like knowledge skills only.

Warner Brothers close to greenlighting the D&D movie.

They confirm that the movie will be set in the FORGOTTEN REALMS and that the Yawning Portal Inn and the city of Waterdeep will feature. They also confirm that if the film does well they will look at doing other films in other worlds later on.

They also say they want to go for a different tone to things like THE HOBBIT and WARCRAFT, with a style of humour similar to GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Hmm. Could work.

So they want to go the route of the original d&d movie and make something terrible. Got it.

Hilarious. Wear your brown pants, because you just might s%#! yourself laughing.

My wife and I are debating about whether to let our very mature 15-year-old daughter see it. Our 8 and 10 year old boys will be very disappointed that we will not let them see it. I don't think my 9 year old daughters will care, but they're certainly not seeing it either.

Yeah, sure. Bring the daughter.

Some of the jokes might soar over her head but...
She is 15. She has heard and seen worse in all regards.

For the sake of her sweet young soul I pray to God she has not. I don't think it's possible. Deadpool was freaggin' amazing, but I cannot - will not! - believe that a 15 year old out there could be jaded enough to fully appreciate the pits of depravity Wade Wilson swims into in this flick.

Small hand. Nuff said.

Why? This movie has no worse language than was regular at the Boys Club I went to in elementary school. The gore is about average, way lower than any horror or zombie movie, with practically no blood and only a handful of scenes actually dwelled on. And the sex in the movie is tamer than most R movies from the 80s and 90s, and something like 30% of 15 year olds are sexually active so there is a decent chance of seeing worse IRL by this point.

Honestly, the movie was good. It was solidly R. But overall, I think Highlander is worse for being inappropriate.

Agreed. The one thing I would like to add though is that Blake didn't necessarily run away. She ran from her friends, but based off of where we see her she is determined to do something about what happened. I think it is a newer determination that we will see in her next season, despite the fact that she can't face her friends.
