Thing is... and the reason why Muppets reboots don’t work that well... The Muppet show was good because it was under the radar. At the time it was this cool little show that started to attract A-List stars to it and kinda spread by word of mouth. Nowadays the Muppets and a new Muppet show are required to be trumpeted Read more

The wild thing about this defense is that it actually REINFORCES the idea that Giuliani was instigating the mob. In Game of Thrones, a “Trial by Combat” is in lieu of court. It’s basically saying “fuck this attempt at justice, I’m going to have my guy try to kill your guy, and whoever wins is right.” So the closest Read more

My idiot BIL was saying “But what about Benghazi” when we’d passed 100K deaths from Covid. Jesus. More and more I’m following the “don’t get in an argument with an idiot because eventually people can’t tell the difference between you and the idiot (and you’ll give yourself high blood pressure and a stroke)“ approach.

Isn’t that kind of the point? He’s a decoy, so Marceau can be the real villain (and honestly, she villains enough for the both of them).

*Spoiler for Mario Odyssey*

Playing as a giant rampaging Bowser at the end of Mario Odyssey was one of the most fun moments in the 3D games imo. I know that it’ll probably never happen, but I would love a “Mario” game where you play as Bowser as he tries to take back his kingdom or something. Basically a Mario RPG plot Read more

This would have been an extremely and unusually long cold open so I can see why it was unused. R.I.P. to Hugh Dane. I would not have pegged him as a good “Dorpheus” but he actually nailed it.

Now that you point it out, Bowser really has earned his place beside the Joker and Emperor Palpatine in the pantheon of evil genius project managers. Those guys know how to get things done.
