It turned out... okay, I guess? I mean, the plot made no sense whatsoever and I felt nothing for the characters. On the other hand, making John Connor the bad guy was a stroke of genius, as was the way they found an excuse to have Old Arnold. The action scenes weren't memorable for the most part...

I wouldn’t call Batman Beyond or X-Men Evolution obscure They're well-known to fans of Batman and X-Men. To everyone else, they're in the same category as Extreme Ghostbusters, GI Joe Extreme, or Sonic Underground: a late-'90s show attempting to copy the success of a more well-known ear...

no SVU? There's an entire channel dedicated to that show, so I don't properly binge-watch it unless I'm in a hotel without my computers. The last time that happened was a while ago. Although, I have seen it often enough that I like to refer to Gotham as Law & Order: Gotham Victims U...

I will defend Voyager and Enterprise to my dying breath. TOS and TAS were worse. I'm serious. They mostly operated on the principle of "which law of physics can we ignore this week?" whereas VOY and ENT derived most of their weight from character-driven drama. There are plenty of excep...

Live-action eva and a solution to the Rei problem

It looks like the LAEM forum is locked, so I'mma post this here. No one actress should be cast as Rei. Instead, she should be a composite of several people, similar to Darth Vader. For example... any random 14-year-old model for the body, with Ariel Winter's face CGI'ed onto her head, an...

Re: Hilarious coincidence or deliberate homage in Transforme

Also, do you happen to have a screencap that shows the Decepticon's face? Would be much easier to confirm or deny if we could see it. I'm currently on my Linux machine, and I'm still pretty clueless about how to use it. I'll see what I can do. EDIT: hell, I'll do better than a s...

Hilarious coincidence or deliberate homage in Transformers?

I'm currently watching the latest Transformers series, Robots in Disguise, which is not to be confused with the ultra-crappy Robots in Disguise from 2001. Yes, there have now been so many Transformers series that they've started recycling the names of earlier series instead of coming up with...

Re: The dumbest conclusions

And plenty of mother subtext for Rei, and Shinji connecting the dots rather explicitly, and the whole scene with Gendo, Rei, and Yui in EoE, and the Classified Information which tells us directly that Rei is a copy of Yui's flesh, and . . . There's a mountain of evidence for this. It's ...

Re: The dumbest conclusions

What are the most bizzare, least well thought out, and just plain stupid conclusions you have found after reading upon EVA (over)analysis? Honestly? Two of the dumbest are: #1: Rei is a clone of Yui. This conclusion is based entirely on the fact that they have similar haircuts and share a v...

Fuyutsuki's job is to "handle the rest of this" whenever Gendo is done being an evil bastard for the day. This is confirmed in multiple episodes.

Why do so many people screw up "Mad World" videos?

This has kind of been perplexing me. Early on in the song "mad world", there's a lyric about daily races. Now, how hard do you think it would be to find appropriate footage for that lyric? I mean, it's not like there's a scene of Toji and some other characters doing daily laps ...

First of all, I'd like to thank pwhodges for pointing me toward Jon Lin's wallpaper collection. I've already been able to score a few solid hits. However, I have two minor quibbles. The first is that, in most of the images with wings, the character with wings is not identifiable as Rei. ...

I have literally never seen or heard of this being a thing in windows, and my family is extremely computer-literate. Maybe they never told me because they were afraid I'd become addicted to Wallpaper Roulette :)

fan art of Rei with wings needed

I have recently joined the Glorious Linux Master Race, and now I can actually set my wallpaper to change at arbitrary intervals. I've decided that I want most of my wallpapers to be fan art of Rei with wings. I used to have a huge collection of fan art, until the hard drive that it was on died. ...
