    A few of the dudes are the same -- the host is different though: somebody named Aisha something or other.

    I don't have a TV so I can't watch :( hopefully it'll be on hulu or something later.

    Wayne, Colin, and Ryan are all back. The host is Aisha Tyler instead of Drew Carey.

    Even though I only watched sporadic episodes of the Drew Carey version, I devoured the original BBC version as a kid. Will definitely be tuning in for the new version, if only for the summer while not much else is on (I think Copper is the only non-animated, non-Stewart/Colbert show I'm really Tivoing right now).

    And, yeah, Venture Bros last night ended on a massive WTF!

    Really disappointed in Aisha Tyler right now.

    Looks like a cross between a wrist-blade, a lightsaber, and Xena's chak-ram thingy.

    Just one more day of actually teaching classes up here. Then a few days of closing up the program areas and herding cats.

    ''

    That was glorious. I like to think that was essentially how conversations went in the Imperial Court.


    ...now I have a sudden desire to go watch Ridicule!.

    "I've been to Grand Moff Tarkin's home, it's quite lovely"
    "No, it's filled with fish, like himself"

    I like the idea of Mara Jade wearing a pin button with The Glove of Darth Vader in it. It should lift her morale.

    "His residence reeks of a certain foul stench, and I don't refer to his Calamari slave."

    And yeah the first time I read AGOT, all those years ago, I kept thinking of the EU Hands.

    Somehow this movie is even more epic that its soundtrack. :D

    Most of it feels like a mix of Godzilla music and the original Command and Conquer/Red Alert soundtracks. Maybe some Tron Legacy mixed in.

    Sigh.

    So due to prodding by @Havac, I've decided to give DF2: JK another roll. Haven't played it since I was a kid, and I commented it hadn't aged well, to which point Havac threw the intro cutscene at me and demanded that I watch it and then say it hadn't aged well. And after seeing the live-action hilarity of Jerec's hamminess, the attitude of Katarn, old school references to Dark Jedi, and best of all, the iconic Nar Shaddaa cutscene that every game ALWAYS does an homage to looking even better than I remembered it... I had to grab it on Steam.

    And I found the JKE mod which updates all the character models and weapons to not look like outdated crap, so that helped too. I just have an E-11 right now, only having completed the first level, and it looks lovely.

    So in conclusion: damn you, Havac.
