I'm pretty sure Brian Unger, Liz Winstead and Beth Littleford all stormed off the show as they all expected the hosting gig.
I usually suggest Guards!Guards! or Wyrd Sisters first. I think the dedication to Guards! Guards! is perfect and sets up how Pratchett sees the world in a beautiful kind of way ... also it has Sybil ... who totally rules.
That’s because they originally had a love interest for Angel in Sandford and decided to cut the character and give all her lines to Danny-without changing them at all. They thought it was a riot that these action movies tend to be so homo-erotic that, nobody noticed what amounts to an actual romantic sub-plot (all the… »
I think it should be a requirement to link to the late Harriet McBryde Johnson's article "He Insists He Doesn't want to Kill Me" whenever Peter Singer the great humanitarian is mentioned: »
Is Born Again up there? I don’t see it, but maybe it’s linked to an episode number that I missed. Certainly I don’t believe there could be any kind of a list of DD recommendations that leaves out Born Again right? I put it up there with Watchman, Sandman and TDKR personally.
I suck so much at playing the Barbarian. With every other class I’m like an unbeatable warrior god but I die so much playing the Barbarian that I wonder if there is a reason. I mean the big guy does more damage no?
I really like Gary Trudeau (Alpha House is kind of wonderful) but I always felt like I needed to read Doonesbury from the start for it to make sense ... so I need to start in 1968 I guess. »
Good read. I would like to hear some more details on the individual panels if you happened to have taken notes on them or have a really good memory. Nice job sir. »
This is only tangentially related but when Bryan Singer was dropping the gross national product of a small country on that terrible "Jack the Giant Killer" flick (and I happen to be a huge fan of the original technicolor version,) how is it possible that no-one brought him an episode of Attack on Titan and said… »
Loving this series of posts Yannick. I'd like to see you co-ordinate something with Patricia— is she still doing the same thing with Dota 2 that you're doing with LoL? Would love to see some side by side comparisons between the two games from a couple of novices. Don't play either myself (yet) but I lean toward Dota 2… »
That was awesome. I now choose to blame the Oscars for the terrible show since this number makes it seem obvious that if you can't make it work with NPH ... you can't make it work. »
I adore Fear Effect 1 and 2. Loved the one arm mercenary, twin sawed off shotguns, bad guys as protagonists, burning paper machine guns and ammo for use in the spirit world, the lot. Loved. These. Games. »
Anybody else feel like the only really solid sequel was the animated Aeon Flux style one that takes place between Pitch Black and Riddick? »
No Risk? It was the only one on my list. Ultimately if you get a really expensive fancy carved chess set, its always going to be cooler than a video game version (though cut-scenes for taking pieces is cool.) Risk is actually more fun when you aren't dicking around counting pieces and cards every turn. »
