  1. Maybe it's worth noting, but in an alternate universe AEW had or has both Flip and Scurl on their roster and things are significantly worse with those two on the roster. So maybe all of this Twitter bitching isn't so bad?
  2. His name is Kip Sabian and he's been there since the beginning.
  3. Weirdly enough, I liked John Cena's springboard cutter/stunner just because of how silly and bad it looked to have this giant of a guy doing a move like that.
  4. Garcia is totally turning on Danielson. This has been a long con from the start leading to Danielson restoring the honor to ROH by winning the title. At which point ROH still won't have a TV deal
  5. This makes me happy we have a bunch of locally owned Mexican restaurants in town with one making the best burrito I've ever had that wasn't made in LA. The burrito winds up being the size of your head and is enough for two meals, but it's awesome. Anyone that could make that on the show deserves a handshake.
  6. Brian Cage looked like he was being setup perfectly for the ROH Reboot with Tully as his manager and then Tully bounced.
  7. I don't blame Sammy one bit for the Tay stuff, but I do think he's just a young and dumb kid to go lightspeed from dating, to engaged, to married in the span of a year. But hey, what's a wrestler without making boneheaded relationship decisions?
  8. I think when this looked like it was between Sammy and Garcia it was a work. My thought is that Andrade though Sammy's comment was about him, said what happened, and then Sammy got shook and decided to talk shit about Andrade. The other reason I think this stuff between Sammy and Andrade isn't a work is because they're not working each other, they don't have a program together, and you have Ricky Starks out there asking if his co-workers could shut the fuck up.
  9. lol I meant more in Star Wars. But that's a good shout out.
  10. And for what it's worth, I don't think Andrade is completely innocent either.
  11. Sammy should be licking the Young Bucks' boots every day that he has a job and national TV exposure in AEW. Good wrestler, but he's not all that different from plenty of others out there and he can't talk without saying some Russo-esque shit on TV. One of the four pillars he is not.
  12. I said it in the general thread and probably should have said it in here instead. But guys, once again, this Sammy kid may be a problem.
  13. Sammy is taking the Raylan Givens axiom of "you meet an asshole in the morning, you met an asshole. You meet assholes all day, YOU'RE the asshole" to new heights. Ricky Starks FTW though by asking if all of his co-workers could just shut the fuck up. He shouldn't have deleted that tweet. Fuck it. Fire Sammy and just let Andrade go while you're at it. But before Sammy goes, he needs to get a proper beating from Eddie one more time.
  14. Started watching Andor, really just the first two or three episodes, and this is so wildly different than anything I've seen from Star Wars since, well, Rebel One I guess. But this is even grittier than that. The events of the first episode that kick things off were shocking. And then there's nearly a quasi-sex scene. Andor being on the run is some harrowing shit and the introduction of corporations as law enforcement is fascinating. Like, I'm fine when they get back to Jedis and shit like that because it's Star Wars and it's inevitable, but stuff like Andor shows just the breadth of scope that exists within this universe that car be explored.
  15. I got so excited when I saw his name came up because I thought we were going to get Manhunter season 3. This is...not as good as that, but good casting!
  16. Episode 3 of Bake Off this season was maybe the grossest one ever. I sat there in pure disgust at the showstopper round with everyone's cakes filled with fish. I get that they all love fish there, but holy shit, cake a fish don't mix. Janusz doing the fish and chips cake nearly made me gag. Fish and chips, awesome. Especially if you can find a place that will give you bits with it (those are the beer batter crumbs). But putting soggy fish and chips and mushy peas in cake loaded with tartar sauce? Dude. That's revolting. I'm in fear at what happens with Mexican Week, which yeah, sounds poorly named. Probably the showstopper is going to be a trifle straight out of that episode of Friends where there's a layer of ground beef.
  17. What's crazier is that CBS Interactive bought the whole thing for 1.5 BILLION. They sold it to Red Ventures for $500 million. Fandom, and their legion of adware and popups, bought it for $50 million. Also, it's no secret I've been a huge fan of Giant Bomb since the beginning and while it has been sad seeing Ryan pass away and everyone move on over the years, especially this past year, I do still enjoy Giant Bomb and I think they're in good hands as long as the company that owns them doesn't kill them. This newsletter from Jess really illustrates one of the reasons I like Giant Bomb as much as I do. Even though the staff has changed, the culture remains the same and it's probably some of the most positive and forward thinking culture in games journalism. I hope Giant Bomb never dies.
  18. Yeah. I mean. I bought Fire Pro World on PC and PS4. I'm not buying Fight Forever twice.
  19. If not for Elden Ring, and I guess Horizon and Slay the Spire, I think I wouldn't be playing my PS5 much.
  20. Dude, I don't know. I have a 4K TV, not a 120 hz one though, and it still looks incredibly dark.
  21. Holy shit, I thought it was just me too. From the first episode I thought that anything indoors was hard to see.
  22. Yeah, I'm out. After last week I thought I would give it one more episode because I nearly hated last week's episode. This episode basically convinced me that nothing good will come of this. It's bootleg Succession in the worst of ways with characters having motivations that feel like they pulled straight out of the final season of GoT. And also, while I knew the time jump was going to happen months in advance, seeing it executed made me think, "who the fuck does a time jump in season 1?!" I liked this more pre-time jump.
  23. Also, I about died laughing at Kenny Boy referring to Jackie as "your elvish friend." I remarked to my wife the first time I saw her that she looks elven.
  24. Add me in the chorus of folks saying Rez Dogs is basically perfect. That had all the feel of a series finale, but they're doing a season 3, so who knows.
