Betrayal is either fun or a cluster and we call it as such. One of the reasons I picked up Eldritch Horror (basically Mansions but across the world) instead of Mansions of Madness is because Betrayal was already set in a house with Cthulu like events. Also Arkham Horror seemed like one of those games that the rule set could kill a man. I learned Eldritch by watching youtube, then playing two games as multiple characters by myself. That gave me the experience I felt I...
God, that opening scene is so good. A sackful of silver dollars to the head.
Peter Jackson decided to chime in on: “MAKING A MURDERER” - and the chilling reality of False Confessions.   
I met Rickman once, about 5 years ago. I was chaperoning a group of 150 students on a field trip to New York City. Our tour bus got hit by a taxi, but we were only 5 blocks from where we were headed, so we decided to walk while the driver dealt with the police. I am the clean up chaperone, i.e. the guy in the back who makes sure students keep walking and none get left behind. Of course with the nature of the street lights, we end up being spread across about 4 blocks. As...
 I rewound it, because I thought for sure I had imagined it. Just straight up hallucination. [[SPOILER]]
 I was going to say the same thing. I started watching Marco Polo this weekend and just finished episode 7.  I have to agree with all the notes. The actors are top notch, and my knowledge of the historicity is low. The nudity quotient is high, but I wondered if it was supposed to be a cultural touch or because it was a Weinstein production or the HBO Vice-President of Tits and Ass had taken a promotion to Netflix's President of Tits and Ass. My favorite bit, honestly, has...
         Sweet Jesus. Doc Happenin's first post in this thread is 5 days shy of two years ago. What was going on two years ago? It was Christie all the way until the bridge gate and KaylaIsMagic was still posting. We have got to break this constant campaigning cycle. Surely it isn't doing this country any good.
I think there is an implication that the Nazis dropped a nuclear weapon on Washington DC. The war ends in 1947, so something happened that delayed their defeat by the Russians, because they talk about one of the films showing Stalin, whom in this universe had long been executed. Maybe the Russian Nazi peace held long enough for the Germans to win the West.
Trying to think of what a McCoy spin-off would be? Space-based hospital? Put him on Vulcan...New Vulcan and let him spar with a Spock replacement? As far as the ST fiction, I can only recall a couple of great McCoy stand alones. One involved his rescue of his daughter from a diplomatic mission gone wrong. I want to see him seduce the gymnast Dax symbionant, as Jadzia and a short story recalls that he hand the 'hands of a surgeon.' Urban deserves some on screen loving,...
So, my gifts from Anyawatchin Angel arrived today and I was super excited. I took a photo, then started wrapping my own family's presents. I was a bit worried about missing them as I am traveling earlier than I had planned. But they are here!     Ms. Marvel has been praised so hard by those in the know, but I was iffy. I am a 35 year old man. But I am glad Anya made me. I only read the first 15 pages or so and I see why that praise is deserved.   So, I have never...
