Re: X-Files

Literally the result of every major plot thread in X-Files is, "why did they even bother?"

Re: X-Files

We've finished the original run of X-Files, with the second movie behind us. Like others have said, it's good that the movie focuses on the characters, but also the movie is way too long for the very dumb story they have, and there's like only one moment of an actual X-Files thing happening. Also I ...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

Yeah, it's at its best when it's as close to its original concept of "The Right Stuff" in Trek. Would've loved to see them earn every inch of space they crawl to. As it is, the fact that they are literally the only Starfleet vessel out there, completely on their own, goes a long way to mak...

Re: (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Animes

Did a re-watch of Macross with some people that've never seen it. Fuck I love that show. It's at once cool, goofy-as-the-dickens, funny, and interesting. I think one of my favorite recurring bits this time around was the bridge bunnies, particularly Shammy, being literally the second- and third-in-c...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

My company just gave me Paramount+ for free, so I've been doing the sane thing and starting a re-watch of Star Trek: Enterprise. God, I love this show. I know it's perhaps the clumsiest Trek ever attempted, but I love the concept and they actually stick to their guns on the idea of the show pretty w...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

Yeah, it's pretty baffling that Dal was made the captain when Gwyn is clearly the most qualified/capable. Definitely just them doing it because he's the main character, I guess, which sucks. I could really stand for Gwyn to get more stuff to do. If she's gonna be the dramatic and tortured one, give ...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

I appreciate how Dal never stops being, like, a teen, and never stops fucking things up all the time. He muddles through, he means well, and I just appreciate how they write him like a teen.

Re: TV Series On The Television

Good to know... I keep trying and stopping to get through S3. Gonna power on. I watched all of From and it SUCKED of course but I really enjoyed it. It's a terrible, fun watch. Watched all of Midnight Mass, it was fucking fantastic. The ending is a bit much, but, it doesn't ruin the great stuff that...

I enjoyed that Prodigy finale, they did a good job keeping true to these characters all the way through.

Should just give up and pirate the goddamn thing. Except I don't even feel like playing it at the moment, lol.

God, I forgot Valkyria Chronicles 4 was shackled with Denuvo. Sucks.

Great game, otherwise.

Any of the newer ones you'd recommend? Kinda bounced off a lot of the Gauntlet.

Re: X-Files

Yeah, conspiracy theories really lose their appeal when they become shock jocks denying mass murders happen instead of mostly-harmless weirdos claiming their fillings are CIA antennas. Mulder's 9/11 conspiracy in season 10 is such an abrupt realization of that, where you can't help but feel, "o...

Re: X-Files

Ah of course - I looked at the writer of Sunshine Days, and sure enough, Vince Gilligan.

I think it was Friday that pointed out how Season 10 and 11 being helmed by only Chris Carter really brought out the worst, more tired elements of X-Files. So much of the mythos storylines nobody likes are his.

Re: TV Series On The Television

Really enjoyed Midnight Mass a lot. I didn’t care for the last ep, which is a lot and just kind of a boring mess, but everything leading up to that is really fantastic and enthralling. I would say the more you learn about the nature of the supernatural element, the less effective the show gets, and ...

Re: X-Files

Our slog through the bleak hellscape of season 9 continues. The only thing holding this goddamn show together is the charisma of Big Dogg. I count two decent eps this entire season, one particularly fun one involving my boi Michael Emerson manifesting the entirety of the Brady Bunch via loneliness-p...

Re: Team Fortress 2 Memorial TF2 Game: Huntsman Reborn

Had a delightful game, we should do some kinda private server next time, that way we don't have to futz with the TF2 party system. Would love getting more people on voice too.

I love how this game is still as purely fun and satisfying as it ever was.
