Re: Leisure Suit Larry 5 (Soon to be Commentary Thread)

What I noticed from the LSL5 script that struck me: -There were possibilities to mess up several scenes, such as the studio scene as Patti with Reverse Biaz. I recall getting through the dentist scene with Chi Chi by not talking at all but apparently you can also mess up Michelle Milken (NYC café) -...

Re: So ... I finally (finally) finished SQ6!

From the Space Quest Omnipedia:
The name later became a somewhat widely-used choice among the fan community for a random anonymous name. Fronzel Neekburm is likely a reference to Wilt Chamberlain.

Re: Tim Curry

I think that's Monk. Tim played Monk in only one episode. I never saw it since it's one of those hard to get your hands on things. Tim did get pudgier in later years (Secret of Moonacre for instance) and in Congo you can see which scenes were shot later because all the jungle trodging made him lose ...

Re: Toys of your childhood...

There's also this little dash toy. As I mentioned, my parents were divorced (still a rarity in the 80s) and if there was anything Dad wouldn't get me, my mother would. My stepmother would usually make sure I didn't get to keep any of them. One of them I remembered with fondness, although I only had ...

Re: Toys of your childhood...

Cool! I'm of the female persuasion and as such the toys I was given weren't as adventurous. My favourite was a stuffed mouse, Piepiep that my sister had stolen from the store as a toddler (she was clutching it and my parents didn't notice it until they had left). We took Piepiep everywhere. When I w...

Re: Happy Advent! And...

One thing I learned some time ago: never order the chicken. I'm serious. Whenever I've had a company holiday dinner at a hotel ballroom, the chicken dish has always been horribly dry. Every. Time. I don't know why. Maybe it has to do with the way the staff has to prepare so many all at once? Get th...

Re: Break The Spine.

Finally, after seven years of searching, after falling head-over-heels in love with the film, prompting me to wear a ring, learn Japanese, learn the theme music on TV and buy the art book, I have finally found it!

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

Eh? I guess that'sa a matter of skill and opinion. I could barely make headway in GK1 and GK3 (GK3 has that bookstore thing to begin with) plus cat hair moustache with maple syrup glue, that interminable sneaking scene (but fortunately there's a workaround if you can't make it), the beautiful Le Ser...

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Disney was never new to cutting. "Three Little Pigs" had the Jewish stereotype brush salesman scene removed or heavily edited back in the 1940s, for instance. The Fantasia adjustments were done in the 1960s. I for one hope they don't do warning stuff since that's what I hate most about the DVDs - wi...

Thanks for your thoughts! Sorry you had to put up with that guy...

I never knew much about Gilbert & Sullivan, I guess with all the motormouth songs they translate poorly.

Opera with better sound quality!

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Everything Disney except Song of the South...
Basically everything on there that I wanted to see (and quite a few ones of which I wish I could get the time back) I already have on VHS. WHich includes Song of the South which I stopped after ten minutes because I didn't understand a word.

I pass.
