I have some early ROM (1-6 I think) it seemed one note to me at the time. I think my appreciation for it came later.I get phat XP for bitching and moaning about my long lost humanity for 75% of the runtime of each session? Sweet!
I kid. I kid. Rom kicks ass. It doesn't mean that his emo whining isn't tedious sometimes.
Boooo!No Ted Turner already owns those
OK, i do agree with some of those. But as a kid, and young adult. The availability of cable, especially late at night (My personal prime time) was limited. So I gorged myself on bad tv. Except not all of it was bad. So examples of the good. Forever Knight, Friday the 13th: the series, Wiseguy, X-Files, The Outer Limits, but to name a few. Then a local station played a movie late at night. Bladerunner, Brazil, Outland, The Park is Mine, Conan, again to name a few. I actually miss some of the flavor of local terrestrial tv. I suppose Im a bit nostalgic.No, but The Maxx, Daria, Beavis & Butthead, My So-Called Life, Liquid Television, The State, Aeon Flux, Headbanger's Ball, and Dead at 21 certainly were.
Yeah, I was being hyperbolic, there was some worthwhile stuff on TV (though I don't miss commercials at all). Friday the 13th: The Series is also one of my favs, rewateched a lot of it last year on Youtube. Others I can recall are Mystery Science Theater 3000, Twin Peaks, Buffy & Angel, Star Trek TNG & DS9, Farscape, Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Fraser, Highlander: The Series, Remember WENN, Clarissa Explains It All, Salute Your Shorts, not to mention re-runs of "Classic TV" - Get Smart and the like. And then reruns of BBC shows on PBS - Red Dwarf, Father Ted, Sherlock Holmes, etc. And the end of the 90s saw the advent of Adult Swim.So examples of the good. Forever Knight, Friday the 13th: the series, Wiseguy, X-Files, The Outer Limits, but to name a few. Then a local station played a movie late at night.
No one image could do justice to his variety, and I couldn't make a collage that looked good, so instead I reversed it so on the cover the reader has the monster's point of view. The image is from It Came From Outer Space. The back of the box would presumably have a blurb and some stills from the various movies. I'm not thrilled by it but it was the best I could do with what I have available. I may try again sometime.Hey Dumarest, how's about a Jack Arnold RPG: Rolepaying in the Fantastic Worlds of Jack Arnold.
It should primarily focus on Arnold's scifi monster flicks. Obscure supplements could cover his - less fantastic - western, noir and other films.
I think there are two other major factors, although the first is related to choice: the explosion of channels and other venues (Netflix, etc.) has led to more niche programming. Thus, instead of having to look for lowest common denominator programs that almost everyone can tolerate, you can find something more well-suited to your personal tastes.I guess what it mostly came down to was less choice.
Oh yeah, that was definitely right before the "Golden Age." I would even go so far as to say that it started with The Sopranos (1999) as the first example of a highly-popular serial storyline sustained over many seasons. That show could not have succeeded without Tivo and cheap DVD box sets.Yes, definitely all a part of it, though I also can't help but think even the stuff that I considered "good" in the '90s, with a few exceptions, wasn't really as good as the majority of stuff I like today.
That's the beauty of choice proliferation and niche programming: you never have to watch something that you don't like...unless you're visiting relatives.Granted, though, my watching now isn't diluted by exposure to the reality shows and talent competitions I hear have mostly overtaken the airways.
speaking of, this showed up in my media feed this afternoon...She still looks great.
yeah, I seem to recall that as well. I'm sure I have it buried somewhere in my saved links, but at this point just scrolling down one of my "favourites" folders on chrome is an almost ten minute ordeal.Unfortunately the guy quit before finishing it. Or at least he had last time I saw it. It was hilarious.

lol, I should probably do something about that at some point, but who has the time?
