  • 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 going to ask for no more responses to this post here, on my profile. Any further posts will be deleted. You want to politely discuss it in private messages or on your own profiles, go ahead, but don't harass one another.
    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

    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.

Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Stranger Things Season 4. Which do I watch first?
It's almost game showcase time! Almost time for games to get revealed, a possible Switch 2 (or whatever Nintendo's revealing this year/next year). From Nintendo to SEGA, Sony to Microsoft, Square-Enix to ATLUS, and Microsoft to Capcom. Looking forward again to see more game reveals, E3 is not gonna be here this year, but that doesn't mean the games and game companies won't be. Hopefully it'll all be awesome fun!
I hope this pandemic ends this year, but since cases are rising right now, I‘m afraid it’s a long wait. But I don’t want to go doom and gloom again. And believe me, I went through that before.
With Mom losing nick@nite rights, it will return back to TVLand next week. That show can also be shown other networks like FX, CMT, Paramount and some local networks
Yay one of my favorite, currently running, comic strips is returning on June 27th , it's going into newspapers, been online only for a couple years. Crabgrass by Tauhid Bondia for May 26, 2022 | GoComics.com
