I wasn't sure which forum to put this in.  So moderators, feel free to move the topic elsewhere if need be. 

Anyway, after Little Kuriboh started the whole abridged series craze, I kinda got tired of the other copycats who followed suit.  While doing an abridged parody of Dragonball Z had a lot of potential, I didn't think it was that good either.  The humor in the first season just didn't work for me, since the fourth wall jokes and everything had been done to death in Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged.  Though yes, Nappa sort of did make it all worth watching.

I remember laughing a lot harder once they got to the Namek saga.  It seemed like a true parody, and Team Four Star did so well with what they were given.  Freeza still managed to be intimidating, while still acting like Mr. Burns or Mallory Archer.  And the way his composure worked off of Goku's stupidity during their fight was perfect.  I loved how they changed a few characters' personalities just to get a few more jokes out of them, especially Guru.  

Season 3 is just as hilarious.  Takahata101's take on Cell is spot-on.  I love his psychotic troll schtick, especially in his first form. 

So yeah, feel free to add anything else; favorite characters, scenes, quotes.  I think most characters are pretty funny.  But the ones I think are especially hilarious are:

For a long time, I never really understood RPGs. It was mainly because I was too young and impatient to really enjoy grinding and exploring and everything. I'd usually watch one of my neighbors play Secret of Mana or Final Fantasy VI whenever we came over, and thinking they were boring. The first one I remember playing was Super Mario RPG when I was 8. Admittedly, after Final Fantasy VII came out, that's when I started to get more interested in the genre.

Feel free to include sub-genres in your lists too.

It's gonna be a long list, and I probably won't limit myself to one game per franchise.

Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy VI, IX, VII, IV, and X
Dragon Quest IV and VIII
Diablo II
Dark Cloud 2
Tales of Symphonia
Odin Sphere
Rogue Galaxy
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Borderlands 2
Xenoblade Chronicles
I've been following Doug Walker for awhile now, and I really enjoy his work.  It took me awhile to get used to all of his screeching and overreacting, but it really grew on me.  I think his review of the Pokemon movie was really what sold me. 

A lot of fans feel like he's lost some of his spark since he added Malcolm, Rachel and Tamara to his cast, and feel like those skits in the middle of the reviews are filler.  But, I don't mind them, and most of them are relevant to the review unlike the cutaway gags from Family Guy.  Though I admit they can drag on for too long. 

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite review:

The commercial specials
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
The Christmas Tree
The Neverending Story 3
The Last Airbender
The Cat in the Hat
Disney Afternoon
Superman IV
Alone in the Dark
Sonic the Hedgehog
The Care Bears movie

I'm probably missing a lot, but these ones had me laughing pretty hard. 
Though it's a bit of a cliche, mostly in fantasy and anime, one of my favorite character archetypes is the wise old mentor.  Most of the time they're pretty likeable, giving the protagonists guidance while kicking ass at the same time. 

Anyway, some of my favorites:

William A. Zepelli, Joseph Joestar- Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Iroh- Avatar: The Last Airbender
The Doctor
Yoda- Star Wars
Silver S. Rayleigh- One Piece
Makarov- Fairy Tail
Genkai- Yu Yu Hakusho
Splinter- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
I thought I'd make a thread to talk about one of the Doctor's most formidable enemies; the Master.  Feel free to share what you think about him, your opinions on which incarnation you like the most. 

My first story with the Master was Mark of the Rani, but I didn't really care much for him.  Though, that was mainly my fault since I'd seen the Colin Baker episodes before really getting far into the older ones.  That, and the writing for those episodes wasn't very friendly to newcomers. I didn't know what to think of him.  All I knew that he was a fellow Time Lord. 

I'd seen a few more stories featuring Anthony Ainely, but he still didn't do it for me.  He just seemed like some smug asshole whose only purpose was to troll the Doctor.  Then, I saw Terror of the Autons.  To me, Roger Delgado was the definitive Master; menacing and sharp, but charming.  He and Jon Pertwee's chemistry was amazing, 

As for the new series, I liked John Simm.  He was a little too psychotic for my tastes, but for some reason I liked a lot of his dark humor.  From what we've seen of Michelle Gomez as Missy, she's alright.  I thought she'd be a little more calm and collective, but by the end, she reminded me too much of Helena Bonham Carter as Beatriz Lestrange. 

So, my ranking of actors who played the Master:

Roger Delgado
Derek Jacobi
John Simm
Michelle Gomez
Anthony Ainely
Peter Purves/Geoffrey Beever
Eric Roberts (Yes, that Eric Roberts!)

It's been years since I last wrote a journal, so let me start off by talking about a few things that have been going on in my life.  Last year, I finally graduated from Nova, with honors after passing a math class that was giving me a lot of trouble.  I've been going to George Mason for a year, where I'm working towards my Bachelor's degree in Spanish.    It's a new experience for me, but I'm managing, and even made the Dean's List for both semesters.

Now, I have more than two months to relax.  And on a completely unrelated note: Today, I started my first day at Great Harvest; a bakery near my house.
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Playing: Super Street Fighter IV
