We have 4 days between getting back and stew night; presumably Janus will be replacing Mama the night before to give her time to work out exactly what the recipe is.

@Mr. A
Didn't you propose we kill the whole household of Kaytlin Mott so we could replace her and lure the priest out?

I don't think that she'd have a household staff by this point given that she's an adultress who's messed up the town's beloved watch tower in such a spectacular way (2 captains down, probably some ugly tensions between Mott's and Edardly's men...). Which is pretty much the whole conceptual point: she's in such a low place that the cleric can't help but tend to her spiritually.

If you didn't recognise this guy from the helicarrier scenes and wondered why he got his own sort-of close up:



it's because he's the guy who stood up to Crossbones and refused to launch in The Winter Soldier:

He makes an admirable survival horror game main character, especially with Chekov's Axe. Pity that someone with such an untrusting attitude towards alien artefacts chose to rely on a containment system so ridiculously failure-prone that one posturing nerd can completely disable it without even an alarm going off.

To be fair, he had been on the job for 24 hours, so not totally his fault, just inherited a mess. You can argue about the plausability of the incident, but it was a really shocking final moment.

It'd be really nice though if that awesome final moment didn't rely on procedural stupidity to happen. It frustrates me how easily writers forget that audiences love competence in our characters and that we notice it when people are astoundingly stupid for the sake of plot.

So, the Agents of SHIELD finale was a thing that happened.

It was all those words, strung together in exactly that order.

Mack is the Boss.

I really liked the realisation of Cal's transformation, and sending him to TAHITI is an interesting call not least in that it means the technology both survived the destruction of the Guest House and the events of The Winter Soldier intact and in possession of people Fury/Coulson trust.

So not Smallville and far more importantly, not part of the horrendous joyless, grimdark DC Movie Universe. The fact that they're following a lot of the techniques used on Arrow and the Flash, in particular casting Helen Slater and Dean Cain, show promise.

I just wonder if she'll meet a nice, smart boy from the 30th century.

Not a fan of her wannabe boyfriend, but Jimmy as torch-passer is a distinctly interesting choice that I hope doesn't point towards the way Birds of Prey handled the necessary absence of Batman.

two questions:
1) if a character is using a Massive weapon, can he still use it if his strenght gets impaired? I'd assume so because otherwise it would be kinda silly, and that the prerequisite for Massive is having a "normal" strength of 15.

I actually would rule the other way -- dropping the Strength of an enemy below the threshold at which they can use their weapon that gets to knock everyone down would be a totally logical strategy I would expect to see most players employ

Which raises the question of what identities people are going to re-enter town with. It might be easiest to blame the loss of travelling companions on an insane old man.

What else do we need to prep-time?

The Lady Leela will be picking up her knives from the weapon maker as soon as she gets back to town.

Given they explicitly mention her cousin and the design of her uniform, I'm kinda curious if Supergirl is going to be the first series set in the DCCU

2015 US Autumn New Pickups

A few of surprises in that list including a sequel to The Minority Report, series based on Rush Hour (meh) and Uncle Buck (blasphemy!), Jaimie Alexander (doing her best impersonation of Jack from Mass Effect) as the usual butt-kicking naked amnesiac at the heart of a bizarre conspiracy, a new Wizard of Oz series, a redemption drama very loosely keying off Frankenstein that kinda harks back to late 90s show Now and Again, and the usual raft of cop, medical, and legal dramas.

Really good news is that Elementary has been renewed , slightly less good news is that although Person of Interest is also getting renewed it's ominously only for 13 episodes, and more or less happily both Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD are also coming back. Disappointingly but far from surprisingly, the affable Forever has been axed.

(A mostly full list of stayers and goers here)

They could have least mitigated the Speedster narrative drain factor by not giving him the usual super-strength punchy powers and by making sure the only thing affected by his speed factor is himself -- interacting with anything other than themselves should cause physics to reassert themselves to a degree.

His combat style should be short jabby moves, because his opponents just don't shift fast enough for the sinuously long full extension follow through style movie makers love to use. He use super speed to move people oyut of the way, but that involves slowly down enough to ensure he pushes them with a survivable level of momentum rather than that reserved for super cars and bullets, while moving someone else along with him should take a major physical effort. Clotheshangering someone should break his arm.

But -- ignoring the issues of whether they should have been played by Romany/similarly ethnic actors, and such people volunteering for experimentation with an offshoot of Nazi Germany -- the thing that really infuriates me about the Maximoffs is that Whedon totally messed up which Gem should have been used to make them. Superspeed and the sort of conjurable TK we see in the film are absolutely the sort of thing that should have been sourced from the Tesseract.
