So about the new season of MST3K (General Discussion)
Evan SolomonDeschainThe Christmas That Almost Wasn't. Who thought a movie about Santa trying to pay his rent would be a good idea?I had a lot of frustrations in with this movie. The major one being that our lawyer protagonist never decided to do his job and file a lawsuit. He could have sued the bad guy on soooo many grounds but never did. So wtf was the point of getting a lawyer in the first place?

PEW! PEW! PEW! The Video Game Thread! (General Discussion)
Evan SolomonDeschainEvan SolomonBreath of the Wild is the best game I have ever played.It is a damn good game. But Link to the Past takes the cake for Zelda for me.These kinds of opinions I don't really get. Video games are art to be sure, but when looking at a game series like Zelda that is essentially a reinvention of the same story and concept I can't understand the preference to stay in the past. it's really easy to say that Fallout 4 is inferior to New Vegas; the differences are quantifiable. I can also see how some might pefer a game like Twilight Princess purely based off it's dungeons and boss design. When comparing A Link to the Past to Breath of the Wild, I don't see one aspect that A Link to the Past does better than this new entry, and I fail to see what it has to offer in place of what Botw has licked. I can see how Super Mario Sunshine could be preferable to Galaxy and I can see why someone would prefer Morrowind to Skyrim but ALTTP vs BOTW? It seems a decision based upon context and nostlagia over actual reasoning. Video games tend to age worse than any other medium and I always judge a game by how fun it is to play in the present. If you had never played a Zelda game, bought BOTW, beat it, and then played ALTTP out of curiosity, I'm sure most people in that situation wouldn't be able to cope with the steps backward. That's not to say that all games Age poorly, I just don't think Zelda games do because the iterations are too similar structurally and narratively. Of course Wind Waker is the exception to the rule. I think of all the Zelda games, that one still holds up.

Our favorite CRIMINAL lawyer is back! Better Call Saul S3 Thread (General Discussion)
Obi SpenobiTrudging through GTA III and jumping straight into Vice City has made things incredibly easy. GTA III's lack of features and clunky, dated mechanics made it way harder than I think it was meant to be. Gunplay is a nightmare. It's like training with a weight vest then finally taking it off.Great game, though. There was a lot of nostalgia at play. An older cousin had this game when I was twelve or so, so going to their house was a magic experience. It's the only third person GTA that I'd never finished.Are the original two worth playing at this point?
Penny Dreadful (General Discussion)
Obi SpenobiFrancesca's "this one really doesn't wanna talk about Cracker Barrel" line is one of the funniest from either show.I feel like a lot of articles and people online assume that Gus and Jimmy are going to eventually meet, but I doubt the two ever will. Saul claims in Breaking Bad that he only "knows a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy," which I assume is just Mike. I can't see Gus using a slimey, two-bit lawyer like "Saul", let alone needing him. I mean, look how hard Mike has to work just to get a lead on the guy.
Oooook then, Fargo Season 3 (General Discussion)
Robin McDonaldif you didnt see season 2 can/should you watch this?
Abbie AnayaI have a QUESTION? Does it matter what order I watch this in? Or is it the same as in the past, meaning I can jump right into whatever and enjoy.
