Something, something.... It's Sunday...

Okay, sometimes if I want to ramble on about nothing in particular I can't think of a good title for the post.  Sometimes I can't think of a good post title period.

Anyone watch that new show Terrible Nova, err... Terra Nova?  Actually, when all the commercials where airing advertising Terra Nova, I thought it was probably going to be a real stinker.  However, the two hour season premier was okay, as in not bad.  So I guess the show could either get better, or worse.  I just hope it lasts for at least a season.

The show had a huge budget, and I can't imagine they will have that much to spend on each episode.  I can't imagine they can afford to even spend half, or even a quarter of what was spent on the first episode.

One thing I didn't like was how they glossed over the science.  Like, how did they discover the fracture in the fabric of time and space?  I've also been wondering if it's always open, or only open part of the time?  They obviously have a huge technological complex to deal with the "fracture".  Does it require energy to send people through?  So many questions...

The show has some neat weapons.  I guess they like the sonic weapons because they save on ammo.

I often wonder if other gamers over-think shows like Terra Nova like I do?  It's both a blessing and a curse.

I'm a little ticked off at KERA, our local PBS.  Last week, Saturday night to be exact, there was a Dr. Who episode that was the first of a two parter.  Well, last night they didn't show the second part.  I was disappointed.

Last week I received all three of the current issues of Loviatar.  It's a great gaming zine published by Christian, writer of the destination unknown blog, which for some reason isn't coming up when I click on it.  Loviatar is a digest sized paper zine, and covers material for Pathfinder, GURPS, WoD. and other gaming systems.  It's ONLY available in this format, which I think is a good thing.  I'm not the biggest fan of strictly electronic formats.  Go to the Loviatar blog, and check it out!

Okay, no more blogging for today. It's time for chocolate pudding, and Britcoms.


  1. Wow, now I don't feel so bad for missing it.

  2. Thanks for the kind words regarding the zine. I think it's nice to have something that's only in print. It feels like the old days to me, when gamers connected mainly via the post in deliberate, patient fashion.

    Rock on,
