Yes I use to love How I Met Your Mother now it's lame and they are just dragging it out pass the point of tolerance. So here's a little theory
at this point I think How I Yet Your Mother could only be good if the twist is that Barney is Ted. and the Ted we know is either a not real or the actual Barney. "Ted" switched them around in the retelling cause he was embarrassed by his womanizing.Would also explain Bob Saget narration since neither are the actual person. No I was not on sandwiches when I came up with this.
Yeah so I just watched the Pilot to the new Fox Science Fiction (Not Double Feature) tv show. I have already on twitter made the comments that Fox will most likely cancel this cause its sci fi on Fox and well you know.
Almost Human deals with a cop(Karl Urban) who gets injured in the line of duty, the extent of which is where the Robocop comparison comes in though not with Red Forman doing the deed.
He is put into a coma and the story picks up 2 years later where John ( Karl Urban's character) is given treatments to remember what exactly happened and is also seeing flashes of a woman(his wife? I kind of missed if they said) also sparking Robocop comparisons .
John must now be teamed with a Synthetic Cop cause that's the rules and of course he hates them cause one of them is partly responsible for his predicament. I won't say want happens to said Synthetic Cop has it's one of the best scenes in the episode. John ends up with Dorian (not sure if writer was a huge Scrubs fan)an outdated model who were put on ice cause they were too human(which doesnt make sense which I hope they will explain more) This where Alien Nation nod comes in cause even though he's an android its the same sort of set up.
the pros of the show would definitely be the two leads Michael Ealy and the aforementioned Karl Urban. They are great actors and seem to have a needed re-pore.
The cons this show doesnt seem future enough sure its only 2048 but it looks like modern day with Kit Cars. Come on theres freakin androids spruce it up! I made the joke on twitter but the soundtrack sounds like the Crystal Method composing a PS1 game(which i think they did that racing games that Sony did a few of then abandoned)
Overall I liked the pilot enough to want to at least watch the next episode so yeah. here's a picture of something unrelated
The Attitude Era Podcast- Yes another Wrestling Podcast detailing PPV by PPV and sometimes othe events of The Attitude Era of WWF/E . I would highly recommend for wrestling fans has a reminder that the Attitude Era wasn't always dude the best nothing bad happened reputation it has online plus its very funny so that helps.
Perhaps I will do some horror related post to tie into Halloween or maybe something about the various Tokusatsu I have been watching (or expalin what that is for those who don't know) But for know read Tom's blog http://lastblogondead-endstreet.blogspot.com/2013/10/31-days-of-horror-year-6-part-1.html
So for a while now I have been knocking around the idea of writing a book on 80 Actions Cartoons(still looking for a title). My idea would be to write ups on various shows give a synopsis and feature something about each particular show I enjoy or maybe spotlight an actor/writer/what have you. Shows like He Man,Transformers,Gi Joe,and Thundercats will be in it but since they have had their own books I would like to feature other shows more extensively. That's where you come in what shows would you like to see featured?
Thanks to my best friend Tom for providing me with Guardians of the Galaxy .1 and 1 and Thanos Rising 1.
Now issue one is a good retelling expansion on the origin of Starlord. One weird thing about it is that the depiction of his father doesn't mess with the character in GOTG 1. There is also the fact that Peter suddenly has blond hair but I think there is a reason for that which I will get to next issue.
Okay issue one is mostly a team re-intro and Iron Man joining with his awful new armor.Groot,Raccoon,and Drax seem to be the same characters has previous. Gamora is slightly odd to me almost like Topaz from the Ultraverse right down to her weapons that might be unintentional,.I will get to Starlord in a moment but first the plot. Peter meets with his Father who is suddenly King of the Universe(which makes no sense whatsoever) and rules over Kree/Shiar etc lot of help you did there during those wars and stuff schmuck. So King Quill said Earth is off limits form aliens so he can conquer it huh? Yeah I don't get it either.
Now to Starlord he is back from the dead with no explanation,blond,and back to his original costume.On the letters page of both issues the word infinite is brought up when referring to Starlord. So I figured out that this Starlord and possibly his Father and the whole GOTG heck the whole universe in this book is not the 616 version. That or a wizard did it.
Thanos Rising expands on his origin gearing up for his appearance in some movie :) The weird thing about this book is the space iguanas that feature on Titan the Eternals home. I don't know if this was Jason Aaron's or Simone Bianchi's choice but it's really silly looking. Heck they may have featured years ago and I don't remember but they change other things why not that? This comic was well written and while Bianchi is a great artist I still haven't read something that his art fit. Oh and spoiler alert the girl talking to teen Thanos is Death :)
Until the utter collapse of Civilization Make Mine Marvel,DC,Image,Drak Horse,IDW,Valiant etc
