@Kaisius: Not sure about the cop/detective show, but the spy show was called “Adderly”, and starred Winston Rekert as a superspy who was transferred to the agency’s Department of Miscellaneous Affairs (a small office, staffed by all of three people, including Adderly himself, tasked with the nuisance jobs other agents couldn’t be bothered with, like picking up drycleaning, or fetching coffee for people on guard duty) after his left hand is crushed while on a mission. Despite his crippled hand and his apparent demotion, he always managed to find himself in the thick of the action. (I was actually a fan of the show, back in the day.)

back in 2008, there were a couple really pro-Obama posts, i’m remembering the one right before the election when Obama’s grandmother died… Anyways, is Obama living up to your grubby Canadian socialist dreams?

also, on a similar note, would you ever take a post down if after reflection, you decided you hated it?

@Kaisius: Are you talking about CBS’s “Crimetime After Primetime”, of which I think Forever Knight was a part, as well as Silk Stalkings and 3 or 4 other shows.

On the Itchy & Scratchy CD-ROM, is there a way to get out of the dungeon without using the wizard key?

Which good actors do you feel don’t put on a North American accent convincingly enough to let them shine in their characters?

As some examples, I find that Michael Caine, Colin Firth and Tom Hardy are all very fine actors, but I just think they get “lost in translation” when they play Americans as opposed to, say, Gary Oldman, Colin Farrell, or Hugh Laurie.

I’d ask about other English-based accents, but I wouldn’t be a good judge of that… only evidence I have is from an Australian friend who was blown away with how well Kate Winslet can sound like a native Aussie.

There is no long introspective post, is there?

You’ve said before that you have a distaste for Agricola. Why is that? I really want to see if our reasons are the same so I can finally tell my friends it’s not just me.

Kaisius: a reporter narrating a cop show sounds a lot like Night Heat, filmed in Toronto but set in City Near You.

Why do almost all Superman villains suck (all versions Luthor and Terence Stamp’s Zod excepted, of course) and what additions would you make to his rogues gallery to rectify this?

Of all the LOSH villains, I’ve always wondered about Mekt Ranzz, aka the Lightning Lord. I read somewhere that all it took to make a comic book villain was for someone to have a bad day, (it might have been this site) now imagine having a series of bad days from day one.
The thing is he’s crazy. Not quite as bad as he was in the 80s (that whole attempted murder on his sister thing) but more like a quiet lucidity and we’re all just watching that mental slide of his go.
What does that say about Winath as a society?
I’m thinking as the single-born (the only single born on the whole planet according to Adventure Comics vol 2 issue 2 Side Story according and to that same side story, Mekt believes he has a twin and there was a cover-up, whether this is true or his own delusion/coping mechanism time will tell) he probably had it rough growing up and according to the LOSH threeboot we know he did. Mekt probably started to slip years ago, long before the Lightning Beasts came into the picture.
Did no one see this coming? Did no one try t help him or was he just written off as a lost cause? For a future that has been criticized as static or too utopian, that implies some damn dark undertones.
I’ve come to my own conclusion that Winath isn’t the greatest place to be if you don’t have a twin for native Winathians (eg twin died in an accident)so that said, Mekt has been screwed from day one. While I’m not justifying or excusing anything that he has done, I’m curious as to what one of the most informed LOSH bloggers on the internet has to say about the fall of Mekt Ranzz, and who or what failed him in the process.
This is my way of requesting a Who’s Who.
