    Completed Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood for the first time. @Daraius you were right it was amazing.

    (Skeptical of the other Fullmetal anime/new live action movie, though.)

    Maybe this will offend manga purists, but I actually prefer the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime series! Either way, though, big fan of Fullmetal Alchemist.

    I have yet to watch Brotherhood, but I did like the original anime.
    Everiine is a man, and is very manly. This MAN before you is so manly you might as well just gender bend right now, cause he's the manliest man that you ever did see. His manly shape has spurned many women and girlyer men to boughs of fainting. He stands before you in a manly manerific typical man-like outfit which is covered in his manly motto: "I am a man!"

    I haven't seen the original anime, but the point of departure from Brotherhood was explained to me, and I couldn't get past how very far-fetched it sounds in comparison. Maybe I'll feel differently later on. The plot of Brotherhood was extremely satisfying to me.

    The OG anime spends a little more time on certain early story beats (Ed’s exam and stay with Shou Tucker, the boys’ relationship with Hughes, Barry the Chopper 1.0 and 2.0, Al’s identity crisis), which I found more satisfying than Brotherhood, and certain characters return in the second half in very interesting ways. But I understand why Brotherhood had to speed through those parts to get to the “new” stuff, and that stuff is fantastic.

    They’re both absolutely worth watching, but it’s hard to deny Brotherhood’s huge leap forward in overall quality. I get excited for anybody experiencing FMA for the first time. <3

    Btw hi folks.

    And now, thanks to an old professor messaging me to let me know he was finally binging the series, I'm once again watching the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. Frack, what a good show.

    Just finished watching Jessica Jones season 2. Definitely was worth the wait, and can't wait to see what they come up with for the third season. And now I'll just mosey on back to re-watch season 1, because why not?

    Blasted through Castlevania, wish there were more than four episodes.

    Just started Altered Carbon. This looks promising.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Finishing up the second season of BNHA (Boku no Hero: Academia) and it is AMASING. Probably going to finally watch FMA Brotherhood after I finish it.

    Finished Star Trek TOS and movies, gotten all the way through TNG to the first movie, I think, or at least to the point that Hallifax elects a new Chairman. Sort of. Also watching Grimm

    I finally saw Die Hard. Idk how I go so long without seeing the classics, but I get to them eventually!

    Watched the first 2 seasons of Fargo (brilliant) and now on to the third! Hope it's as good as the others.

    Went to see Ready Player One and it was fricking amazing. Loved it so much, and I just know that second viewing will be even better. Tempted to read the book, but in a rare reversal of my usual stance I just can't see how it can be better than the film.

    I'm still trying to figure out how a first-time author lands a major motion picture deal before the book is even written.

    Having read extensive excerpts of the text and a "let's play" style chapter by chapter review, my advice would be to avoid the book - at least borrow it from the library or otherwise avoid paying for it. It's really really bad.
  • LuceLuce Fox Populi Member Posts: 2,466 Transcendent
    Kinda like Eragon?
  • EnyaEnya Member Posts: 199 Adept
    Worse. Derivative and... YA-y as it was, Eragon at least was written with some semblance pacing, tension, and character arcs.

    So now I'm even more confused on how a BAD book by a first-time writer gets a major motion picture deal before it's even written...

    The Good Place has been surprisingly great.

    Don’t be fooled by the goofy looking thumbnail on Netflix. 100% worth watching.

    The newest, double-part episode of Steven Universe has me going back through every episode and shouting angrily when I re-read things. No spoilers, but you definitely need to watch it if you haven't already.

    Just bingewatched the entire first series of Cobra Kai. If you can overlook or don't mind, or even enjoy the teenage romance drama in it, it's a perfect spiritual successor to the Karate Kid trilogy, some of the nods to the original series are a bit meta and groan-laugh worthy but the moments between Daniel and Johnny are absolutely brilliant.

    And the season ending, jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez that had me slack jawed in shock.

    Finally watching My Hero Academia. It should come as no surprise to anybody that my favorite character is 100% the frog.

    For some reason, I was drawn again into watching Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda from the beginning.
