I think Shadowrun is pretty niche, all things considered. And it’s not as though this movie’s similarities are particularly germane to the criticism of what makes this work or not.
I just meant to say thanks, but apparently my autocorrect felt I was really trying to yell out random holidays like l’m affected by some form of festive Tourette’s.
It seriously does my heart good to see all the folks who’ve been around since Gameological’s beginning still contributing such thoughtful conversations. Thanksgiving, everybody!
As someone who plays Shadowrun, I was hoping against hope this would be good, but I can’t say I’m surprised it isn’t. Even as a fan of this kind of genre blending, it does have a baseline of ridiculousness that’s tough to clear. Also, as the X-Men movies demonstrate, super powered prejudice as a stand-in for real…
I do appreciate it for what it is: a fun show that could be even better with a minimum of effort!
Yeah, my biggest hang up with the show remains that it goes about a half-level deep with any of the concepts it broaches. It make sure the crew seem like a particularly earnest group of high-schoolers. I keep on expecting them to build on whatever basic premise they introduce, but they just don’t. The end result is…
You’re absolutely right. She had no use for such vulgarity. But I appreciate anytime someone makes a Jane Austen reference.
When it became obvious to my family that I was going to be the first of my generation to get married, I was immediately designated by silent, mutual decree to become the Steward of Sentimental Family Detritus.

I do understand that. It was a very clever framing device. I’m sorry if my entry didn’t make that clear.
Speaking solely for myself; I ‘taint bothered by the violence one bit. The preview just didn’t really show me anything intriguing enough to justify continuing the series after the concise, well-resolved narrative of the first one.
I think we talked about it a little!
I was impressed by the ship design as well; all branchy and tree-like. As the show gains confidence, I hope these little flashes of brilliance become more commonplace.
I agree. I’m not a huge fan of her storyline this season -mostly because I’m tired of Ali’s four season-long search for herself- but Hoffman is an incredible actress. Her face looks really drawn this season, and the depth of uncertainty and worry she can convey with just a shift of her eyes is affecting.
I am 100% down with Luke’s salty old sea dog look.
It totally was. While neither were amazing burns, “Happy Arbor Day” was definitely superior.
I did this for the AV Club, so it would be up to them to decide if they want to distribute a wallpaper. It's a neat idea.
Hi! I'm Nick and I drew the whole dang thing.
