Did I send you my copy of "Nit Makes Lice"? I didn't understand what title you were talking about. It sounded like you said, Next makes life." There were hints but I read that thing years ago, then you mentioned the pussy cut out scene, I knew right away I had the graphic novel. It was a good comic and shows why you shouldn't put religious people in charge of anything.

You never watched MASH, it's a great series. I bought the boxset with the t-shirt. Ever heard of Spearchucker Jones? He was a neurosurgeon on the show until the TV writers found out there hadn't been any black doctors who served in Korea. Too bad, he was a fun character while he lasted.

Just to note- Michael Ironside didn't show up until the second miniseries, V:The Final Battle, and not even til the second episode.

Back when BSG was first coming out, some old-school BSG fanatic was flaming the site now known as Mania.com Trenchcoat, was that you?

The new BSG is fucking awesome. Trenchie probably never saw a single ep of it. Like V he probably read one review and never watched it. SO SAY WE ALL!

I will admit that V is nothing to be shouting about. The writing is bland and cliche. I mean, why would you not have Robert Englund and replace him with Morris Chesnut? Morris Chesnut's wife in V is hot though. Good casting.

Robert Englund needs a job! He's gotten replaced in Nightmare on Elm Street and what does he have now? An episode of Spectacular Spider-man?

Xantes, I didn't know that; I always assumed the PC police made CBS ditch the character just for having the nick "Spearchucker".

And wasn't Michael Ironside in the V weekly series or am I just confusing it with DC's short-lived V comic?

Vichus, that wasn't me, as I barely have enough time to post here and on the PCX threads; I did actually did watch the intro mini and the first couple episodes of the new, incredibly overrated/inexplicably sex-changed Galactica and I'm glad I stopped watching right away so I never had to sit through what was apparently an overtly xtian finale.

No, I know it really wasn't you. It was actually a guy who was black. I believe he had a mowhawk. I always wonder what he's up to. I bet that fucker has a box set of the new BSG.

Well, you don't have any time, but if you did, you might be able to enjoy Michael Ironside's voice in a game like Splinter Cell. He's still out there...

So I guess you haven't read any BSG related material? There's a BSG comic out there, right?

T Mafia said...

I actually tried to read the old Marvel BSG comic back in the day; that was enough of that!

XantesFire said...

Yeah, Michael Ironside as Ham Tyler was also on V:The TV Series, but that was after the second miniseries. And he was in the comic, I think he was in more than half and he starred in every issue he was in. They even wrote one of the V novel about him, Path to Conquest.

Marvel's old BSG was bad, but not as bad as V the comic book. Or maybe it was, I can't quite remember.

I sort of don't understand the mystic christian ending either but I haven't seen the last 2 seasons yet. From what I saw of the first seasons and what I heard here and there, I don't understand why they would believe in gods anyway. Supposedly the Cylons met and talked to "god" and the humans experienced high science. Wish they had the Star Trek universe encounter the mystic "gods" from BSG.
-"Spock, what is it?"
-"It appears to be a higher lifeform trying to influence us by pretending it's god.
-"Okay everyone, maximum setting on phasers. Fire!"
-"It's dead, Jim!"
-"Good, I'll be in my quarters, send the new blonde."

What the hell are you talking about?

XantesFire said...

I didn't understand what the title of the book was.

T Mafia said...

Xantes, what's funny is you just pretty much summed up Star Trek V there.

XantesFire said...

Not hard to do in Star Trek. I think most of ST:OS involved 3 solutions. -Fuck the girl and get her to do your bidding.
-Reverse the polarity.
-Blow it up. If it thinks it's god, demean it, then blow it up.

Mm. Something wrong with you ears?

vichussmith said...

I didn't totally get the name of the book, either, but I think that's the fault of the silly title, not Tim.

XantesFire said...

Try, "Sally sells seashells by the seashore."

Thoom said...

The title was clearly enunciated twice and the beginning of the show.

XantesFire said...

The title was not clearly enunciated twice at the beginning of the show. I kept playing it back but no luck.

Instead of your homoerotic banterinb back and forth, allow me to tell you what I heard "SomethingSomething make lice." First word starts with an "N" or an "n" sound.
