Stormtrooper Ashley Broomhall plans to annex England’s highest mountain in the name of the Empire on Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you, geddit!). Having walked to the top of Ben Nevis and Snowdon in full stormtrooper armour, Ashley now has his sight on the peak of the 3,208ft mountain in the Lake District.
Charlie Jane wrote earlier that things would get messy on 12 Monkeys and boy was she right. Things have been seriously shaken up from the first season. This week we see the importance of research before going back in time and Ramse is having his worst day ever. Spoilers ahead.
Last week, BoatMcBoatFaceThePartyBoatDriver had a dream. Nerds uniting to nerd out on TV re-watch threads to help spark some life onto the Observation Deck. Deep Space Nine being my favorite Star Trek series, I volunteered.In addition to re-watching, I hope to find and share random bits of lore behind each episode,…
If you don’t have authorship on the Observationdeck you can still post here by tagging posts on your personal kinja blog with OBSERVATIONDECK, so they show up on this tag page where one of us will usually see them & share them* to the main Odeck. Then when you’ve had a few posts shared you can ask the Mods for…
Ahhhhhh Rifts. One of the zaniest and most interesting tabletop RPGs to come out of the 90's, but also one most held back by its own mechanics. So many cool ideas to read about, (mostly) great art to pour over, amazing characters, and some real cool meta plots (for those that care) to follow.
Massive Spoilers ahead, do not come in unless you are current on A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as Game of Thrones.
This week’s episode of Once Upon A Time gives us the origin of something that’s been around since the beginning of the show but I think few, if any, viewers really wondered about the story behind that item. But this week we find out the story anyway. Spoilers ahead.
Welcome to the first post of my rewatch of The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. If you’re not familiar with the show the short description is “Bruce Campbell in a Western.” There are some fantastical elements to the show so it’s a mix of Indiana Jones as well as classic Westerns.
A few weeks ago “BoatyMcBoatFacethePartyBoatDriver” made a post to gather the brilliant writers/posters of the Observation Deck into a group that can re-watch and post on some of our favorite shows in the past, and I was fortunate enough not to get kicked out during this process. If you want to take a look and sign up…
My brother, who is deeply into historic reconstruction shared this little swee/atie on his Facebook page.
“Home.” Unsullied Eyes is a discussion space for Game of Thrones viewers who have not read the books. Be warned that there are spoilers for the latest Game of Thrones episode after the jump. The purpose of this discussion space is so that we can talk about the show as is. Book readers are welcome, but please refrain…
Steven Universe returns to our TVs on May 12 with the start of Season 3 and the next arc called In Too Deep. Many of the comments from the IO9 announcement were wondering if this is a series worth watching and what episodes to watch to get caught up.
Apparently former Doctor Who and Purple Man David Tennant frequently wears a hoodie because it makes people stay away. It seems they think he might want to murder them, but despite that he never got a part in Taggart. That’s just one of a selection of facts Radio 4 have assembled ahead of a production of John Osborne’s
Recently there have been some conversations at my school, and the world in general, in regards to the Black Lives Matter movement. Some people have misconstrued this message and believe that it is one of exclusion at the expense of other lives. It is not. It never has been.
CERN’s Large Hadron Collider has been shut down after a weasel decided that a 66kV transformer would make a tasty snack. The particle accelerator was turned off after a short circuit caused by their furry intruder. Technicians opened up the electrical facilities and found the weasel had not survived.
A random joke in an article put me in the mood for a fun Friday game. I know it’s been done to death, but I haven’t seen a recent fancast of Robotech Macross that employs actors who’ve come to prominence in the last few years. Have at one of the best as-yet unadapted space operas!
Who says select committees can’t be fun? Whether it was north poll or south poll, Civil Servant Martin Donnelly doesn’t want to say what topped that attempt to find a name for a polar expedition vessel. Unfortunately, he’s met his match with the inquisitorial skills of MP Roger Bacon. What was that name again?
Don’t mess with Kate Fleming! The third series of Jed Mercurio’s forensic-minded saga of corruption and conspiracy series Line of Duty came to an explosive conclusion this evening.
So the show I am about to describe to you hasn’t happened yet. Its not my troupe but its a troupe I perform with when I am home as a soloist or collaborator with their other performers. The show had a lot of turbulence getting started this season due to some decisions to exclude long time performers which has lead to…
