  • I've been watching "Star Trek: The Next Generation" on Netflix slowly for the last year or so. I was up to the start of the final season in early March when I saw the show is being removed from Netflix on April 1st. So I'm feverishly trying to finish the series before the end of the month (I don't "binge watch", I'm used to taking my time).

    Good luck. I did the same with The Sopranos before it was pulled from Amazon. Luckily I made it before the deadline.

    You can always rent the DVDs from your local library.
    I just saw a "Nintendo Switch OLED" model for sale on Walmart shelves (so they're finally becoming commonly available). I'm torn as to whether to upgrade my Switch to an OLED model or to get an "Xbox Series S" (which is also now widely available at Walmart).

    @wonderfly Do you like Mario games in vivid picture? If so, upgrade to OLED and if you like MS games like Halo and Forza, so grab Xbox Series S, but I recommend you to wait for Xbox Series X if you have 4K.

    I'd love to get a Switch OLED, but I already have a "regular" Nintendo Switch and a Playstation 5, so I'm set, for now.

    With the Omicron variant spreading in South Africa, do you think it's a good time to reopen the COVID-19 discussion board or are you going to keep it closed for good?

    He would say no, especially since the variant is not as bad as we thought. If only the media can learn that by now instead of spreading fear!

    We will keep it closed for good, as it's proven to be too political to leave open.

    I see your point.
    My kids love "Josie and the Pussycats" (1970) but didn't care for original "Jonny Quest" (1964). I think my kids just prefer the animation style they've gotten used to with watching Scooby-Doo episodes from 1969 and all of the 70's. Was there really that much of a change in animation style in 5 years in the late 60's?

    I watched both when I was about 6/7 in 93/94. I wouldn't say I loved J&TP but I had no problem watching it, but I did used to find JQ quite boring and hard to watch. I just think that pre-Star Wars action/adventure style is mostly a little hard for younger kids to get acclimatised to.
    Unblock the coronavirus era right now, the cdc lied to us about the mask removal.

    @Eurbane how do you know the coronavirus era will end in late 2025?

    The era will likely end much earlier since a lot of people will already be vaccinated well into next year.

    I'm hearing reports that Playstation Network went down (or is still down).....I was wondering why I was having issues last night playing games online....
    I finally explored the animation side of "Paramount Plus" and got around to going back and watching early Spongebob....only to discover I've never seen the pilot episode before?!? How did I miss this back in 1999/2000??

    I know it wasn't on early DVDs due to rights issues with the Tiny Tim song, maybe that limited repeats as well.

    I wasn't really watching Spongebob until 2004, but I didn't see the pilot until around 2012 or 2013.

    Yeah, I thought I had seen every episode of seasons 1 thru 4 (that's the years I was paying attention to Spongebob) and yet, right off, I find that I never saw the pilot episode....

    now with kuarantine krab not on the season 12 dvd i think we might see it on some future season spognebob dvd to be determined just like the pilot episode.
    I've been playing a ton of "Pac-Man 99" on the Nintendo Switch lately. Still can't seem to get above Rank #30 in a match....

    EDIT: And yes, I'm enjoying it more than "Super Mario Bros. 35".
    Nintendo Direct incoming tomorrow! Not a "Partner Showcase", not a "Mini-Direct", but a full fledged Nintendo Direct!! Maybe we'll finally see what Nintendo's been up to the last 12 months.

    There hasn't been any since September 2019 so it's about time they announced a real Direct.
    If the PS5's don't become more available soon, I may just break down and buy a PS4 Pro. The newer PS4 Pro models are pretty quiet, I hear....probably just come back to getting a PS5 a year from now, if that's the case.
    Godzilla vs. King Kong. Whoever wins, we lose.

    .....wait, are we back in 2004?!?
    I don't want a Playstation 5 for all of the new "next gen" games coming, I just want a PS5 so I can just play my PS4 games without my PS4 console sounding like a rocket engine blasting off. (...So tired of seeing the PS5's sold out everywhere....)

    We all are. Though I'm more interested in the Xbox Series X myself, simply because it has four generations of compatibility, which is pretty impressive.

    Yeah, Playstation's attitude of "no one wants to play PS1 or PS2 games" is pretty disgusting. Granted, if they just keep remastering all of the old games....

    Still, I want a PS5 (with disk drive), but I'm also thinking of eventually getting a Xbox Series S as a compliment.
    After countless hours of Scooby-Doo on Boomerang, it appears my kids' 3 favorite Scooby-Doo movies are "Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders", "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase", and "Scooby-Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster".
    So why was it called "The Clone Wars" anyway? Shouldn't it have been called the Separatist Wars?
    wonderfly
    wonderfly
    Actually, it's strange to name any war after the grunts that fought in it. It was probably a ceremonial title given to the conflict a few years later (didn't most of the clones die from aging sickness just a few years after the Clone Wars ended?). And yes, I guess I'm kinda in a "Star Wars" mood tonight.

    I think it was Yoda who said "Begun, the Clone Wars has..." so maybe he sensed they'd prove a critical point in the war. And yeah, all the Clones had rapid aging.

    It's called the Clone Wars because it sounded cool to Lucas back in the 70s. Parsecs, Spice Mines, Clone Wars, etc.
    Been playing "Donkey Kong Country" on the Switch's Super Nintendo collection. Brings back good memories, and it's a very good, very relaxing 2D platform game.

    My first console was the Nintendo 64 (one of the games we got for it was DK64). It wasn't until 2012 that I got a SNES from a cousin; sometime that year, I got the first DKC title; I remember playing it then and again in 2020.

    The music for it is impressive (and, yes, often relaxing).

    I was in High school in 1995. I got my SNES for Christmas 1991. Or it might've been early 1992. I was pretty well done playing with SNES by it's last few years (1995-1997), so I missed out on Chrono Trigger and Donkey Kong Country 2. Still loved playing the original Donkey Kong Country though. From 1996 to 1998, I probably spent more time over at friend's houses playing on their Playstation and Sega Saturn. :D

    But again, I didn't fully dive into the Nintendo 64 until 1999.
    So....Warner Bros. basically gave up, didn't they? That's the explanation for the Wonder Woman announcement, isn't it?
    wonderfly
    wonderfly
    They "gave up" on trying to make a profit on the film. I mean, yeah, I'm looking forward to watching it on HBO Max (I already have a subscription to the service) but....if this ends up being a loss for the studio, what are the odds of getting a Wonder Woman 3?

    They were most likely already losing money on the movie though. And there's no guarantee that next year will be a better time for theaters, so delaying the movie again could have easily backfired on them. It could affect the chances of getting another sequel, but I think being delayed for months already did that. Plus, I'm not sure how safe filming for a movie or TV series is at this point.
    wonderfly
    wonderfly
    Well.....we'll just have to see what the next year holds. I'm not sure what movies are being filmed now. There was supposed to be an Aqua Man sequel getting ready to be filmed. I think everything's up in the air and undecided right now.

I guess 4Kids Entertainment skipped Tokyo Mew Mew's second half due to its darker and edgier content or the poor ratings of the first half.
Gonna be honest with you all: I don't feel safe living in this country right now.
I love my Nintendo Switch I got back in 2018, I've played an awful lot since I got it. I've played Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Legends Arceus and many more wonderful Nintendo titles over the years of when I got it. I've been a Nintendo fan since I got my first console purchase, The Nintendo GameCube, back in 2002.

I predict that the COVID-19 pandemic will end permanently by 2023.
I wonder why Mario Party 6 was the poorest selling MP Title, and the only one of the four Gamecube MP games not to break 2 million copies? What's surprising is Mario Party 7 sold better, despite being from the dying days of the GC. Did the microphone initially put people off (or raise the price)? Did Mario Party 7 get a boost from the early days of the Wii?
