What do you not like about Tulip? I really enjoyed Ruth Negga in her arc on Agents of SHIELD and I find her to be a fun presence on Preacher.

The accent is probably the main thing. It doesn't even sound real to me, more a cartoony version of what Tulip (or an American woman from the South) would sound like. I also think her comedic timing is a little off, (So is Jesse's.) I find a lot of her delivery to be wooden and in general, I have never seen her in a scene from Preacher where she pulls me in to the story. Like I mentioned earlier, her acting pulls me out of it.

I'm a big fan of the graphic novels and read the whole series, so I was looking forward to the TV show.

So... the guy who's Cassidy is pretty good. He plays Cassidy a little goofier than the character in the comics, but I can tell the overall character is there.

But the actor who plays Jesse is kinda mediocre, and OH MY GOD TULIP FUCKING SUCKS. She's terrible, like so terrible that she takes me out of it every time she comes on screen. I haven't been able to watch an entire episode yet.

Is there any reason to keep trying with this show? Or should I just move on and count this as a loss in my book?

Spencie Returns1.) I personally don't know if television gets any better than The Venture Bros.

2.) Breaking Bad is probably my favorite, concluded television series.

Season 2 of Venture Brothers might be my honorable mention for best television ever.

DaMUAs Batman said to Rachel Dawes, it's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you.

And as Rachel Dawes said to Harvey Dent, "it's OK, it's all right. Listen, some-" KA-BOOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!

Okay, this might be the best thing I read all week.

I would love to get some feedback here.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine from college online. We were discussing the McGregor-Mayweather fight, and the fact that McGregor has been saying racist things in his press conferences. (And it isn't the first time. He did the same kind of stuff when he fought Nick Diaz.) My friend's first reaction was, "Sure, he's racist, but whatever. He's a guy who gets punched in the head a lot. It doesn't matter."

After talking about it a bit more, he followed up by saying, "I could argue he's not racist, and just saying racist things to Mayweather in order to get him into a blind rage and lose his focus."

I mean..... I think it's pretty obvious that intentionally saying racist things to someone to get them mad is racist. Doesn't matter if it's before a boxing match or some sort of game.

Consensus? Thoughts?

I've been trying to go back and play a lot of my favorite old school video games, as well as catching up on games I have not played yet. There's actually a number of games I never got around to playing, and now I've gathered most of them. Finally going to get some free time here so now, in your opinion..... which one of these games would you start playing first?


Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
The Last of Us
God of War 3
Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes

I'll take first crack here.

1) Best television I have ever seen is Seasons 3-8 of The Simpsons. I'm pretty sure this will never change.

2) Best show, beginning to end? Breaking Bad, in my opinion.

The best television you've ever watched, but broken up into two parts-

1) What is the best television programming you've ever seen? This can be one solitary episode, a whole season, a string of seasons, a mini-series, an interesting documentary, whatever. This can also be something on right now, or something that's been off the air for years.

2) What is the best television series you've ever seen, from beginning to end? This does not include anything on right now that hasn't had its series finale yet. I'm talking television shows that have finished up so we can watch them in full.

Well, the Coquina Clutch sure is effective. (I can't remember a match in the WWE that was under 10 minutes where one guy got his submission hold finisher broken 5 times.)

On another note... say what you will about Roman Reigns, but I am loving the Reigns-Strowman feud. It reminds me a lot of the Undertaker-Mankind feud. Sure, they haven't had a classic like the Hell in a Cell in Pittsburgh, but they are having a lot of huge brawls that are over the top yet fun to watch.

There's always a lot of talk about movie and television directors/actors/writers being hacks, as well as stand up comedians, literature writers, etc.

When you hear people talking about someone being a hack, who is the first person that comes to mind?


(For me?..... Jimmy Fallon)

The Wii Virtual Console has a HUGE collection of old games. Bigger even than what you can find on the Wii U. So if you can find a dusty old Wii for $40, that opens up a whole world of old games. If you hook it to a flatscreen with the red/blue/green cables the picture quality is actually rather nice.

That's actually exactly what I'm doing. I felt like replaying Mega Man 2 and 3, I had both of those downloaded on my Wii so I fired it back up again. I saw that I still had some Wii points and just enough memory space for one NES game, therefore..... this thread.

While we are on this topic of old school video games and shit.....

Has anyone here played any ROM hacks? I'm a huge, huge fan of Chrono Trigger and I'm interested in getting Crimson Echoes, I've heard nothing but great things.

DeschainMega Man 2 is the correct answer. The original Castlevania is good but suffers from stiff, frustrating controls. The first Mega Man is rough around the edges. 2 is that sweet spot of tough but fair gameplay and great controls.

Well, I stated already that I have Mega Man 2. Opinions on Castlevania 3?
Jun 22, 2017 5:32 PM
Let's imagine you have 5 dollars lying around, you want to download a classic NES game... which one do you buy? Mega Man or Castlevania?


OR


Do I listen to my friend who said, "Fuck that, download Mega Man 2. Oh, you already have Mega Man 2? Then get Castlevania 3."

Baron Corbin wins MITB?

Ugh, fuck no. I simply don't understand what anyone in the WWE sees in that guy. His tattoos are the most interesting thing about him.

I love playing video games. But... I hate first person shooters, and I really don't like Smash Bros.

Spencie ReturnsI think it's wonderful that society's obsession with labels give us the power to generalize entire groups. It would be a shame if we had to take responsibility for our own misery. I sleep better at night knowing there's a plethora of social groups that I can blame my troubles on.

Just started reading, already needed to comment that this may be one of the best posts I have ever read.

In honor of Chris.

Lots of news reports are now claiming suicide by hanging. Sad.
