Dungeons and Dragons - TV Shows
Anyone who hasn't heard it yet should listen to the radio broadcast of the unreleased final episode. I listened to the copy in the DVD set. Some people said that it helped them get on with their lives after they listened to it. I got to watch this show on DVD about 3 years ago. I was very interested to see what this controversial kids show from 1983 was all about. The story pokes fun at some of the Dungeons & Dragons game rules, especially during the first episode. Remembering that this was a kids show it is unrealistic to expect Venger, or our Hereos to kill anybody. Perhaps "A Game of Thrones" would be a better TV show for that. I thought the story unfolded pretty well and revealed its secrets in an interesting way. It did seem choppy at times, or like they didn't spend enough time developing certain characters like Warduke. I loved the way that Venger was a man of his word even through all of his evil. Those that have watched will remember when our heroes miraculously defeat Demo Dragon and thus keep their promise to Venger. Venger is extremely angry and bewildered because he wanted/expected them to die, and can't fathom how they beat the dragon. He mutters and curses but allows them to go free instead of killing them. Venger tells his army that because they did what he asked he must honor his word. We got our first glimpse that Venger might be more than meets the eye and wonder who he really is and how he came to be. The Dungeon Master gives us a frightening clue at the end of that episode. Another good episode was Dragons Graveyard, probably the seminal episode of the whole series. Those who have watched already know this. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on September 30, 2011, 7:21 pm

Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman - TV Shows
Tough for me to admit but this is probably the best old-west genre media I've ever seen. The town and the people were real and alive to me. The story took place in an "authentic" environment. It was obviously stylized for TV, I'm not claiming that it was a realistic portrayal of life in the old west. I can't quite pinpoint what makes this show so good but I feel like it paid attention to its characters and spent time giving the town a personality too. This show is similar in some ways to Star Wars 4,5 & 6 for making you care about the characters and bringing you into the world with them. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on September 30, 2011, 6:38 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
I've always liked the political discussion on bonethefish but I do feel the comment approval system is biased in favor of conservatives. What happened to letting anything through? Now comment approval seems to be decided by one or two people who only want one viewpoint heard. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on September 30, 2011, 6:13 pm

Feminism - Random Topics
I guess living down in Good 'Ol Virginia the women understand the difference. I've dated a lot of go-getter high powered types and they still like it when I pay and hold door. And sometimes they pay ;) And fellas if she says not to, just don't hold the door. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on August 23, 2011, 12:02 pm

Fox News - Random Topics
I wonder if someone could comment as to the nature of Fox News's news reports and not Fox's pundents. As far as the pundents go I've never seen any discussions that were fair and balanced. The biggest thing I slam fox for is the obnoxious behavior of people like O'Reilly, Hannity, and Beck. Interestingly Keith Olberman has left (been fired from?) MSNBC and is now with Current TV. Perhaps this means that MSNBC has cleaned up a bit and is less obnoxious than Fox? I'd like to hear your thoughts. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on August 23, 2011, 11:46 am

Communism - Random Topics
I think communism boned the hardest when it established the centrally planned economy. If Marx had kept the free market I think the communists might have pulled it off. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on August 23, 2011, 11:31 am

Feminism - Random Topics
I don't think opening doors for women conflicts with Feminism. Nor does buying her dinner while on a date. She wants equality under the law and a man who will treat her right. Seems simple to me. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on August 1, 2011, 9:35 pm

Massively multiplayer online role-playing game - Random Topics
I played World of Warcraft and Vanguard Saga of Heroes. I find them so addictive that they interfere with life outside of game time. Anybody else have a similar experience? I was gaming 8-14 hours per day and didn't even want to brush my teeth when I got up in the morning. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on August 1, 2011, 9:05 pm

Major League Soccer (MLS) - Random Topics
I've really enjoyed watching MLS this season. Sure they are not as skilled as English Premier League but I like having the connection to my own country. Soccer is growing pretty well in the USA, especially on the west coast. To anyone who doesn't know, Soccer broadcasts are always uninterrupted. No commercial breaks during the game. This is true of the English Premier Leauge too. That's one of the best things about watching soccer. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 29, 2011, 10:00 am

Burger King - Random Topics
I remember the new fries back in 1997. They were amazing. I mentioned to everyone how good they were. I ate at Burger King again about a month later and something was wrong. The fries were dull. There was no wow factor. I was very disappointed. I didn't know what to make of it. I thought maybe last month had been a fluke, maybe I was just hungry that day. Recently I found out the real story from my Global Economy and Business textbook. The starch coating on the 1997 fries was better according to taste tests but too difficult to cook correctly in day to day operations. There were so many mistakes that Burger King decided to scrap the project all together. Its a shame because I really liked those fries. The 1997 fries to me were a lot better than McDonalds but the true version of the 1997 fries had a very short life. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 12, 2011, 8:48 am

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
I heard Ann Coulter on CNN saying that she loved Sara Palin for her ability to make liberal heads spin. Funny, that's just the kind of strategy that I would prefer the conservatives to foucs on. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 5, 2011, 9:40 pm

Jesse Ventura - Celebrities
Last time I heard Jesse speak (probably in 2004) he was a big defender of free speach. It was refreshing to listen to someone who wasn't blinded by partisanship. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 5, 2011, 9:22 pm

Ann Coulter - Celebrities
I think she does more harm than good to the political right. I wonder if she's really a leftist sent in to make conservatives look silly. Anyone remember when she said that her pipe dream was that women shouldn't be able to vote? Or when she said that certian Iraq war widows were enjoying their husbands death's? -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 5, 2011, 9:12 pm

Daria - TV Shows
I really liked Daria getting a boyfriend. I thought that Daria eventually becomes a cliche if all she can do is criticize. And she's better than that. She's not just some bitter misfit. She's a living person who at some point has to grow up and admit that she has desires like everyone else. I don't like the way the show used Tom though. He was just really boring after a while. There were some great tom episodes though. How about the one where Daria begins to take Tom away from Jane. If I hadn't seen it I wouldn't have believed it, but the writers really made it believable. Daria and Tom clicked so well (in that episode). Or how about when Tom spends the night at Daria's and Quinn over hears and tells the whole school. I actually wish that someone would make a life color Daria movie. I'd love to see Jane and Daria, and Trent playing guitar. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 5, 2011, 12:59 pm

Firefly - TV Shows
I first found out about Firefly when the Science Channel (NOT the Sci-Fi channel) began re-running the episodes in their proper order in March 2011. This is the first time where I remember liking a pilot episode better than the rest of the series. The world that the pilot episode created seemed so authentic and alive. The rest of the episodes got away from the feeling of being emersed in another world but they were still plenty good. When i watched the pilot I didn't know it was the pilot, I turned the show on a few minutes late and I was imagining that the ship must be on hard times to have to start accepting passengers. I wondered about their life before this episode and what it would be like afterwards. I was shocked when the captain explained that the ambasador was really a whore, and that without a liscensed companion (whore) the ship would not be welcome to dock on many planets. I knew then that I was in some strange magical world gone wrong, so different and yet not so unlike my own. Good show, too bad is got an early death. Shows like this make me want to write more to the story line. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on May 31, 2011, 1:58 pm

Dawson's Creek - TV Shows
*Major Spoiler Alert* (so not to ruin it for all the DVD late-comers like me) I loved Seasons 1 and 2. Series 3 is definitely when Dawson's Creek jumped the shark. This is when Kevin Williamson (the creator) walked out to pursue making movies. I can't fault him for expanding his career but it's too bad. He had such magic going with the show. I do think the first Bone the Fish sign was having Joey wear a wire to bust her Dad. It was just too awkward, too out of place. It could have been forgiven/forgotten though if season 3 hadn't been such a train wreck. Also I'm really pissed that Dawson and Joey never got to really date. I think they broke up one episode after they got together. Where was the deep romance, the dream come true? Giving Dawson a night with Jenn in season 6 was a small consolation prize 6 years too late. Season 2 was only really saved by Pacey and Andy. More Grievances: It was just evil having Joey pick Pacey." What a load of crap. I didn't see them together. It didn't make sense to me. What about all the build up in season one, the been best friends forever thing. Maybe the writers had done too much damage by then. Maybe all the old fans had left and the new fans wanted Pacey. Who knows? I also heard a rumor that Kevin Williamson came back to help write the finale and at the last minute changed the story to have Joey and Pacey end up together instead of Dawson and Joey. Why destroy a match made in the stars? Another complaint: Why make Andy cheat on that test? In the words of Paul Stupin (the producer) : I'm not sure [Andie's] character EVER recovered. Interesting side note: Many people I meet love the show but have never seen seasons 1 and 2. The real meat of the series and what made is a phenomenon was the tension in the first season building up to the idea of "Will Dawson kiss Joey?." A lot of fans have never seen that. And frankly if you haven't seen seasons 1 and 2, then I'm sorry, you haven't seen Dawson's Creek. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on December 15, 2010, 6:24 pm

Friends - TV Shows
I grew up in the 80's and 90's. I was 11 or 12 when friends came out. At that age I didn't like the show. I though it was just a bunch of not very well written comedy. I'm 27 now and I think I finally "get" the Friends. A bunch of miserable 20 somethings struggling with the same problems that I have: hanging out with people who have vastly different incomes than me, attempting to play the stock market to delay getting a job, people I know dealing with divorce at a young age. Sure the show is a farce, sure they couldn't afford those apartments, sure they would never have that much time to hang out in the coffee shop. Who cares. This IS fantasy land, and was ment to be. Its just good fun. And to the person who thinks that Jennifer Aniston isn't hot, or is only hot because the media tells us so, HOW RIDICULOUS. If Jennifer Aniston had AIDS I'd have to think about it (boning her). -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on December 15, 2010, 5:29 pm
