The Prisoner (1964) Finished

After watching the last episode of the Prisoner over the weekend, all I can think of is that I'm a little disappointed. The Prisoner was a bumpy road, with some episodes being a little hard to get through, and others being just wonderful. The last episode is just confusing though, so very much happens that it was very hard to follow, and a lot of what happened just didn't seem to make any sense. I'm just left with more questions, which is okay.

Really I never expected there to actually be an ending, I fully expected a world where No 6 is still on the island today, instead they have him escape, but in the most non-sensical way. Still, I highly recommend the series to anyone that wants to watch some mindgames.

  1. I finished watching the show this weekend. I agree with everything you said, some eps were brilliant and others made my head hurt. Loved the ep where they let them escape, out at sea for 28 days and then dropped back on the island.

    The mind wipe and impersonating ep was another classic. And the Western ep was totally in left field but I'm a sucker for a Western and I enjoyed it too.

    However the finale left me speechless. I had to stop watching it at one point and take a hr break, then come back and finish it. Felt like a bad version of Austin Powers or something.

    I guess I would have liked 6 to always be on the island.

What It's Like To Get Pipebombed

Well, I'm going to break with my rule of not actually mentioning anything about having a pipe thrown at you, but in celebration of the 6 month anniversary, I really wanted to write it up. So, without further ado, here's what happened on my Fourth of July 2009, and the six months since: So, it's the Fourth of July, 2009, about ten-ish or so at night. Being that we live in a condo, and our homeowner's association has prohibited fireworks being let off in our complex, we decided to take a walk around the neighborhood in order to better see the fireworks everyone else was letting off. We walked straight out the front gate, got about maybe 50 feet down the street, and a dark car with it's headlights on pulled out onto the street, about a block ahead of us a man with a white shirt was walking in the same direction as us, nothing noteworthy about either of those. However, upon passing us, something was tossed out of the passenger window and bounced off my chest, upon th

CM's Star Gaogaigar

So, this is Star Gaogaigar from the King of Braves Gaogaigar cartoon, one of the infamous Brave series of cartoons. Basically, the Brave series was a handful of cartoons with toylines supported by Takara after the original Transformers line had stopped being profitable. Each series was unrelated to the last, and was heavily aimed towards selling toys, featuring a lot of combining figures, especially centered around a central hero character, which would combine with just about everything else under the sun for various upgrades. A lot of Transformers fans consider the toys to these cartoons as the spiritual successors of the original Transformers line. I've never watched the cartoon, so instead, here's the opening: Now that that's out of the way, look at that box! It's huge! Height and width, it's about on par with the larger Soul of Chogokin boxes, but the thing that's really odd about it, is that it's just as deep as it is tall, if you look at it

Lemme Tell You About The Transformer, Astrotrain, And Why He's My Favorite

       I am, quite obviously, a massive fan of Transformers, but I grew up in kind of a weird time for being a fan. Really, I'm just a LITTLE too young. I remember seeing my brother, who was six years older than I, get all of the coolest Transformers, and then by the time that I started being able to ask for Transformers for myself, the nature of Transformers had greatly changed. I have a great anecdotal story about him clipping Soundwave (arguably one of the coolest Transformers toys ever, which turned into a microcassette player) to his shorts and climbing a tree. He then proceeded to fall 30 feet out of that tree, and land on Soundwave, which poked him right in the kidney, and he peed blood for a week.        While I still have a great deal of fondness for them, Powermaster Optimus Prime is just not as cool of a toy as the original Optimus Prime. Notably, if you landed on Powermaster Optimus Prime, he probably wouldn't puncture your kidney, but the original Optimus Prime mig
