Let me rephrase: all our products are mechanically compatible, though whether they fit together thematically is up to each GC and group. Wink

These are reruns of a show that premiered on NBC this last fall, actually. Good stuff, though it takes an episode or two to get its footing.

And now for Villians!

What region runs these?

In the spirit of Dramatic Chipmunk, Dramatic Tarsir,

That is awesome! You're right, it's oddly...

What were we talking about again?

Steve just picked a copy up at our local Barnes and Noble at cover, and they had two, so they're out there.

Ah, Sour Times. Man I was bummed when Portishead broke up.

Preach it brotha! That was a dark, frakking day.  Sad

And Bill - You're right, Sour Times/Nobody Loves Me is a great Bond movie intro. It's a constant fallback when working on Spycraft.

"You all were finalists in a reality TV show." Cheesy

I did this with my latest Torg game, and it worked really well. Invasion hit during the final sweeps episode of "Make Your Own Reality." Much fun was had.

Googling Tiger Team with Spycraft shows it was offered as an event for GenCon Indy 2007.

It was - as a playtest. It was never finished nor released.

"One of our own" was offered at Evansville Gameday in Apr '07 (also googled).

Can't speak for that, but it's entirely possible it was another playtest.

Sorry... it came from the press release... thought it was open material. I'll err on the side of caution.

No worries. As it happens, I saw the press release elsewhere not an hour later. The Stargate folks aren't apparently worried about spoiling their audience.  Angry

The books will be compatible and an urban fantasy setting is totally doable. We don't have one planned yet, though it's a long ways to release. Smiley

Watching Daybreak online was the only option after Episode 6 - the show didn't really catch on and was canceled rather quickly (not as quickly as, say, Emily's Reasons Why Not, which only lasted a single episode, but still). I didn't catch either show, though I kicked around watching Daybreak. I like Taye Diggs as well, and Moon Bloodgood is yummy.

Now, Sarah Conner Chronicles appears to be doing well, though its numbers are perhaps exaggerated by the writer's strike drought. I like it so far, though it's got its fair share of issues (how, exactly, did that Terminator skull get transported when raw metal can't normally go through?).

Added spoiler tags, as that contains a lot of stuff people might not want to know. I, for one, didn't know about most of that.
8038  Community / Off-Topic / Re: An A-Team Movie? on: February 05, 2008, 12:06:51 PM

Yeah. I went a little nuts there.  Tongue

You had me up until "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey" and "The Legend of Curly's Gold." Really, or was that just sarcasm?

It's been a good long while since I've seen them, but as I remember they were pretty fun - and since the originals weren't exactly all that, I still mentally drop them in the same boxes.

I'm surprised that you didn't mention the Bourne movies, or do you not care for those.

I'm a huge fan of the books, which makes it hard for me to like the original movie in the series. I vastly prefer the Chamberlain mini-series, which at least tried to be faithful to both halves of the story. The new series threw out my preferred half (Carlos the Jackal), leaving me so disappointed that I couldn't stomach going back to see the later entries. People tell me I need to divorce myself from the books and go back to watch them as unrelated material that happens to share the same name (though none of the spirit, which is a cardinal sin from my perspective). Perhaps I will eventually, but the shaky cam is so far keeping me at bay.

For the record, ST: Nemesis was horrible.

I've heard. That's why I didn't bother. Makes me a little sad, actually, as the screenwriter and director seemed to have the right attitude about it - make a good science fiction film and let the Trek part carry itself - but it appears they still managed to go off the rails. No one I know likes that flick.

Shadow is 7-01, but my question was regarding 7-06.


Does "Running for whose Life" fit into this?

It's up there as well.

I'm the oddball in the peanut gallery, but I actually prefer many sequels to the originals...

Alien 3 is my favorite of its series (by a narrow margin - Aliens is mighty), as is Batman Returns, Empire Strikes Back, Evil Dead II and/or Army of Darkness, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, X-Men 2, Karate Kid 2, Wes Craven's New Nightmare (one of the best 'thinking' horror movies ever made), Mission: Impossible II (even III was better than the god-awful first one), Police Story 3, Armor of God 2 (Operation: Condor), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Blade II, and Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear, to name a few. Wink

For honorable mention, I liked Die Hard 2 and 3 almost as much as the first one (but not quite), and I'm ignoring anthology series like Bond here.

Then there's the long list of sequels that are just as great as their predecessors IMO: 28 Weeks Later, Dawn of the Dead (and for that matter the 1990s Night remake, which I adore), Road Warrior, Before Sunset, the whole Thin Man series, Superman II, Terminator II (and almost III, by my reckoning), Rocky II-IV, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Toy Story II, Spider-Man 2, Godfather II, Matrix: Revolutions (I hated Reloaded), Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Lethal Weapon 2, Saw II, the Resident Evil series (the whole thing's good but not spectacular, but both sequels are worthy of the original), Desperado, Final Destination 2, Hellraiser II, American Pie 2, the Back to the Future series, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, Beverly Hills Cop 2, Beyond Witch Mountain, Cocoon: The Return, City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold, Santa Clause 2, etc.

At least until Nemesis, which I never saw, Star Trek adheres to the even/odd syndrome for me - like decades (in RL), every second Star Trek film is good (with Khan being the best and each subsequent one progressively less so overall). The ones in-between are mostly forgettable and sometimes laughable. (It's odd to think that the new flick is an odd-numbered entry in the series whether you consider it part of the original chain or not - based on what we're seeing so far, it might actually break the cycle.)
