Level Up! Holiday Gadget Special (Article) - 12/16/2013 11:02:47 AM

had a similar phone case to the top one and it certainly is impact-resistant. accidentally fell 5' down then had a full-size computer fall on top. No Damage at all and a very scared me made sure not to put my phone on the computer trolley when doing equipment runs again.

 

Like the charger at the bottom, but you can get similar for cheaper elsewhere (though without the apple connector - which i like as I do not like apple products)

Darth Vader TV Specials? (Article) - 10/22/2013 10:21:20 AM

darth vaders christmas special, featuring those classing sing-along songs like "i'll blow up your home for christmas", "rockin around the reactor core", and "deck the halls with bothan spies"

or possibly a cross-over show: CSI: Death Star. The opening scene is vader standing over David Caruso's lifeless corpse ordering the storm troopers to find those responsible. (as they leave, he snickers and walks away)

Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode Review 1.1 (Article) - 9/27/2013 11:14:40 AM

yeah, it's fantastic - the convenience store thing right?

still, he bend double-over backwords on whim to dodge that door in this episode, there's something funky going on with him and i'd chalk it up to android or supe (could be they did something similar to Dr Erskin's formula on Coulson to bring him back and put him somewhere remote to see how he handled things, that's what he can't know is that he's now an unregistered supe)

DEXTER: Remember the Monsters? (Article) - 9/27/2013 7:22:33 AM

The lumberjack and deadpan expression are the absolute clue to his fate: he still needs to kill and be in a profession where he can be around sharp objects/knives/chainsaws/etc. His life as a lumberjack is his cover, he is still a killer and he will continue to do so until caught or he dies. The final look is him showing us that underneath his cover he's as cold as he was in the first episode - he's gone full circle by killing the "feeling" Dexter in the storm. The survivor was the dark passenger, the need to kill, and there is no trace of who he became in order to ensure the safety of Hannah and Harrison - the same as he felt for Deb in the beginning of the show.

Killing Deb was a necessity in my opinion. Deb was imploding and everything was out of control for her, she could never recover from killing LaGuerta, ever, and it would ruin so many more lives when things came out.

Of course Dex would be given a free pass by his friends - they wanted Saxon dead for what he did to Deb, and Dex has at least a "plausible" case if it would ever go that far, but really, they wouldn't let it. A serial killer died in jail after attacking an official representative of the Police, case closed. They KNOW what he did, and it was apparent that they would like to have been able to say they did it but overall they're just happy he won't be getting off on a technicality.

 

Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode Review 1.1 (Article) - 9/27/2013 7:00:30 AM

didn't read 4 pages of comments, but near the end, Coulson does a Matrix-esque dodge when something is thrown at everybody (none of them are able to even react). There's something with him that's not normal and not cloned. He's either super-powered himself, or a robot.

TV Wasteland: "His name was Phil..." (Article) - 9/23/2013 8:01:27 AM

I heard that saying the "m" word will get you a life sentence in Azkabhan. True story.

Under the Dome: Curtains Review (Article) - 9/19/2013 12:20:11 PM

I suspected in the first episode, when they killed Duke - the original cop - that the replacement would be a typical moron who inherited a post of importance in a stephen king setting, meaning they are little more than a pawn for the bad guy. damn my knowledge of stephen king tropes.

Under the Dome: Curtains Review (Article) - 9/18/2013 11:04:15 AM

the *only* good thing of the finale was just that, we're done for now. no more bashing us over the head with blatant reminders of how dumb people are, no more stupid dialogue and no more worring about...oh, sorry, i don't care if they catch/kill barbie, if junior kidnaps angie again, or if big jim kills someone else. Nothing of import ever changes and nobody uses facts to support theories or see through plot holes.

Under the Dome: Exigent Circumstances Review (Article) - 9/10/2013 11:18:42 AM

Watched it last night and the whole thing to me felt trite.

Big Jim and his plans to get the mini dome are irrelevant. As the show has demonstrated, the mini dome will mess up people who it deems shouldn't be near it, which means the kids should be taking Big Jim to it and saying "watch what happens when you touch it" - then having him get zapped like Dodee did.

The whole Julia schtick is sickening. Every time this character arc is brought up makes me turn away from the screen. She went into a coma from a gunshot to the shoulder? The nurse who saw Barbie save her and care about her goes missing without saying "actually jerks, he saved her while i was busy helping someone else"?

Angie trying to get Junior away was like watching a 12-year-old computer geek ask out the head cheerleader - i wanted to cringe and yell and just tell them to get this over with, don't make it any more painful than it already is. This is the person WHO KIDNAPPED HER! Yes he's mental, but don't give him ammunition to do WORSE to you. So what if the actual good guy wants to knock him out or hurt him - HE'S DOING THE RIGHT THING IN THAT REGARD.

Creating unbelievable scenarios for the sake of drama is not good storytelling, it is insulting to the intended viewers and casts the actors, network and directors in a bad light. Why are they willing to let the writers give them this trash to work with?

Given all your rants in the previous weeks about how stupid these people are and how much we're bashed over the head with every fact, this week when we weren't bashed over the head you suddenly forget how horrible these people are and give the show a good review? Bad form.

Mania Review: Riddick (Article) - 9/6/2013 5:51:55 AM

trying to convince my friends to leave the wives handle the children this weekend as mine has offered to do, so that we can all go out and enjoy a movie none of the wives want to see.

i can't wait!
