  1. No Draft in October because I won't be around. I'll be traveling and chillin' at Disney World for a couple weeks. Then we get into the Holidays. Probably do a "Best Of Slots" draft that runs through Nov / Dec.
  2. Clearly you have some insight into the Saint character and I appreciate that you are sharing it. Sad to say that the only Saint I've seen is the Val Kilmer movie. I know the character has a long history.
  3. Review: Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid - Seasons 1 & 2 (Non-Spoilery) Season Aired: Winter 2017 and Summer 2021 MAL Link: Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid & Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid S I watched it at: Crunchyroll Review: I began watching Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid without knowing anything about it or having any particular expectations for it. I figured it would be cute (which it is) but upon completing two seasons I found that the show is also poignant, deep, funny, friendly, engaging and... dare I say... life affirming. I found the show warmly entertaining, like time spent hanging out with friends. The Plot in a Nutshell: Our main character Miss Kobayashi finds and rescues a dragon who has come to Earth from another world. The dragon asks Miss Kobayashi what reward she would accept for this deed. As Miss Kobayashi is drunk at the time, and not really processing the enormity of what she is dealing with, she says she would like a maid before heading home to sleep it off. And that is how Miss Kobayashi ends up with a dragon for a maid. This dragon, named Tooru, seems strangely happy being the maid for a human. Intrigued, other dragons begin appearing from the other world to see what's so interesting about humans. My Verdict: Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (seasons 1 and 2) was very enjoyable to binge. It is funny, witty and sometimes heart-warming entertainment start to finish. The first season gets us interested in the characters while the second season is exceptional in deepening both the characters and the lore of the dragons. Each episode is presented in a format of short story segments (or skits) which focus on a couple of the characters at a time. It is a sitcom format for an ensemble cast that gives each character time to shine and keeps what's going on fresh. There is a lot to love in this show and it is absolutely worth giving a chance. I personally found it quite entertaining. Score: 4.5 out of 5 5 Brain wildly entertained. Neurons saturated with entertainment. 4.5 Brain extremely entertained. Neurons firing regularly. Outside world forgotten. 4 Brain entertained. Neurons well stimulated. Brain wants to look for the blu-ray. 3.5 Brain in Neutral. Neurons a little stimulated. Brain generally pleased. 3 Brain in neutral. Neurons flat lined. Meh, brain pleased just enough. 2.5 Brain in neutral but occasionally displeased. 2 Brain displeased and not entertained. Brain thinking about doing something else. 1.5 or less - Brain suffered through the show so it could tell you not to.
  4. Review: Zombie Land Saga & Zombie Land Saga Revenge (Zombie Land Saga seasons 1 & 2) (Non-Spoilery) Season Aired: Fall 2018 and Spring 2021 MAL Link: Zombieland Saga & Zombieland Saga Revenge I watched it at: Funimation and Crunchyroll Review: Zombie Land Saga is the bizarre three-way love child of Japanese Idol Culture, Josie and the Pussycats and Dawn of the Dead. One of the things that makes Anime such an intriguing and dynamic form of entertainment at this time is the constant experimentation. New story concepts are constantly being thrown at the wall to see what sticks. The concept of this show is pretty out there, but it is very sticky. The Plot in a Nutshell: A necromancer / talent agent desires to revitalize his city with fame and economic prosperity. So, he does what any necromancer / talent agent would do in this situation: he digs up and reanimates dead famous singers. With these talented zombies in tow, he turns them into a girl's Idol Group named "Franchouchou" and plans to use them to put his town back on the map. All it takes is a little make-up to hide these ladies true nature. They're cute! They sing and dance! They want to eat braaaaaaaains! My Verdict: Zombie Land Saga (seasons one and two) was 24 episodes of well done entertainment. While the first season was good, the second season was actually stronger and completed the story arc set-up in season one. Watching both together as one show was very satisfying. The character work is very tight with each undead idol getting their own character arc and personality. The show mines much humor out of the premise of undead celebrities hiding their true nature. The performance work is very strong on this show and the voice talent can sing. Funimation has an English Dub of Zombie Land Saga. I prefered the English Dub of this series because of all the musical numbers. The English voice talent was clearly chosen for their ability to sing. They do a really great job with the performance numbers if you prefer your songs in English. Score: 4 out of 5 5 Brain wildly entertained.

  5. Conceptually, the holographic doctor's actual "body" is the holographic emitter itself, no? So Self Surgery would have to be performed on the holographic emitter unit with primitive tools.
  6. Leaning Aurora. The ability to summon forest creatures to help with trashing the dress is a plus.
  7. In this challenge I lean Carmen Sandiego. She steals huge and impossible things like monuments. I can imagine her stealing an entire cattle ranch including the barn.
  8. As far as I know both these characters have lockpicking as a primary skill. Looks like a toss-up, but will wait to vote to see if some feats show up.
  9. I agree with @Peypeypeypey above. Elsa also nearly offs her own sister TWICE I believe. Jasmine is pretty cool. She leads a sheltered life but wants to get out and explore things and see how people are living. After that icky Jaffar business is dealt with, she presumably wants to make the city a better place. Also, the entire town didn't come after Jasmine with torches, pitchforks and murderous intent unlike Elsa.
  10. In Highlander season four, episode "The Colonel" Amanda is seen training a pickpocket. So it is cannon that she is skilled enough in pickpocket to train others. The only Saint reference regarding pickpocketing I find is the film The Saint in London in which The Saint works with one. The Saint is a character that has been around for a long time, and I will wait to see if someone has feats to point out. At the moment I lean Amanda.
  11. The Savage Land fought Ron Weasley to a tie last round. I'm not sure if Shego would fare any better on this terrain. Seems like it could be a toss-up.
  12. Allow me to present what Mileena face looks like without a mask. One wonders how well a blowgun is operated with that anatomy.
  13. Three rounds to go until we find who the Final Four are. No break away leaders yet.
  14. The "Hospital Gurney Scene" is a trope often seen in shows that have a medical component to them. Hollywood's idea of what takes place while wheeling a patient from one place to another in a hospital is probably a gross misconception, but I digress. The "Hospital Gurney Scene" is pure dramatic cheese of the fine and aged variety. It does not matter what House's physical limitations are. What matters is the close-up face shots filled with concern, the breathless medical jargon being tossed around speculating about the exotic ailment in play, the loved ones who are inexplicably part of the gurney procession crying about their injured loved-one. It's all about the drama and who can dial it up to eleven. House has real chances here.
  15. Please see this important website announcement. Thank you.
