    Yup. About as expected once they decided that the Martian with a German name was supposed to be Asian.




    That doesn't make her Chinese, considering she thinks she can pass as Rom. I always got a French vibe from her background sequences (weren't they in French?)... but then I often forget there was an original version without the English dubs as it's inferior...

    Also, Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivruski IV/Edowādo Won Hau Peperu Chiburusukī 4-sei is a made up name. Her birth name was Françoise Appledelhi. Her Dad's name is Siniz Hesap Lütfen Appledelhi... "Appledelhi Siniz Hesap Lütfen" sounds like "Afedersiniz hesap lütfen" which is Turkish for "Excuse me, check please."

    So Ed is probably Turkish.



    But regardless, if they put Ein in it (and why would they without Ed?) he better be a Pembroke Welsh Corgi or I'm gonna fucking revolt.

    Also, it's been almost 20 years since I've watched this show. I should do so again.
    For people who do not care about race, you guys really talk a lot about race. #almostasifyouguysareracist #wait #youare
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    Yeah, I knew you were watching it, but I had also remembered one of the guys here being current on it as well.

    I have to admit, they're doing a pretty damn decent job of making the show as deeply rich, detailed, and multi-faceted as the book is, which is a high bar to clear in general, but also for just about anything from Neil.

    Oh, and I just found out there's a cd called "Where's Neil When You Need Him" with songs from various bands/artists about his various works. It arrived the other day, and I've ripped it, but haven't listened just yet, though I am thinking it will be good.

    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Based on a comic book you say... with Patton Oswalt as the unicorn imaginary friend of a kidnapped girl and Christopher Meloni as a washed up old cop you say... I'll check it out.

    I mean... I'm now almost two months behind on all my other shows, but fuck it, Christopher Meloni as a violent drunkard washed up broken down cop? I'm in.

    He's really good, too. His facial expressions were made for this show.

    Stabler was one of the only three reasons to watch SVU.

    Hmmm. Hadn't heard of this until I ran across mention of it in the Inlander today. Considering trying to see it if we get it in a theatre up this way.

    Oooh. Not sure how I never heard anything about this being made or coming out. Definitely will give it a viewing. The costuming/makeup looks pretty phenomenal already.
