It's that time of the month and we're upcoming with maintenance for the end of the month. So what does that mean? It means chat services get cut off in the early morning hours on the Eastern time zone while I do backups, disk cleanup, snapshots, and server restarts. I'll start giving out warnings via system broadcasts (shows in the room in yellow) closer to the time when it is to occur. When you start seeing the system broadcasts, you'll have about an hour to start wrapping things up before chat services come to an end. UG servers should still be available and active. Thank you all for your patience as I go through the necessary stuff but we'll be back up and going for Dec 1.
I'm offering up gift membership options for Members. Members may request at email@example.com and we'll see what we can do. For members, be ready to provide your membership username for verification purposes and I will only accept gift inquiries from members that have valid and verifiable information. We'll discuss it and get it underway.
So I'm really behind on this show. It came out in 2014 and I've been sleeping on it since. Weird thing is, I've seen the movie Fargo that the show is based on by the Coen Brothers and just never got around to watching the show. This show is like the movie in some ways. Quirky, funny, goofy, serious with a lot of dark humor, and of course quite violent. The show is more of an anthology series where each season is self contained and while there are references or perhaps a character that was seen in the previous season (after season 1 that is), the season story arch itself is independent of the previous. There is a different year and/or decade in each season too to further separate the season story archs. Give it a watch if you're a dark humor fan with a side of violent drama. Season 5 just came out recently so I'm catching up.Nov 22, 2023
Thsi show is based on a very popular Playstation video game series. It is written and produced by the creators of Zombieland, if you've seen that movie. And if you know anything about that movie, you know the wit is sharp and silly at times while also having deeper themes and plot lines. The story is set in a dystopian future where the world was set into chaos because some unexplained EMP or something cripples the internet. As a result, the world's major cities build walls around them to protect themselves from the bad elements, kick out the criminals and unlawful, and all of the rest of the world in between is like the wild west. The story is about a driver that delivers goods between the cities. It feels like a mix of Zombieland and Dead Pool as far as sense of humors go without the 4th wall chatter. It was hilarious and you'll enjoy.Nov 19, 2023
This show is in the King Kong & Godzilla universe and involves some top notch star power. It has Kurt Russell and his son Wyatt, John Goodman (more in a cameo appearance), and Anna Sawai (from Fast & Furious movie, F9). This show is about these strangers that come together to investigate goings on within Monarch, the big brand corporation up to some unethical things in the movies and the monsters they have unleashed on the world. The special effects and CGI are impressive and Hollywood budget worthy. It's intense and you all should check it out.Nov 16, 2023
What a good show. This show is set in the 70s and the story is about a young Winston (from John Wick movie series) and how he comes to be the manager of The Continental. You know, that hotel for assassins and hitmen that allows no killing within its doors no matter what? It's has a great narrative but to answer any questions, it is not about John Wick. In the 70s, he'd be a child. There are only 3 episodes in this limited series but each one is about 90 minutes long so they really give you a lot to digest. It has the same John Wick type of action, intensity, grittiness, and violence so be warned, it's not for the faint of heart.Nov 9, 2023
Loki has returned. It has come and gone with the season finale this past Thursday. You know Loki. The Asgardian God, half brother of Thor, the God of Mischief. I'll admit that he's not very mischievous these days but the things they do with time, time travel, and its consequences has played havoc on him so a bit of an ironic twist but through two seasons they've taken time to humanize the God of Mischief and make him realize that there are things bigger than even him that he has to make a choice as to what to do. You gotta see it for yourself. A great blend of action, thought provoking time sequences, great acting, and emotion that makes this easily a must see. Only thing I don't know is how this ties into the greater MCU and in what movies it'll tie in exactly.Nov 3, 2023
Invincible has returned! So excited. UPDATE: Off to a good start. The first season was changed from its source material in some places for the better and Season 2 will be no different. UPDATE: On its midseason break and won't be back until 2024 but has been great and met my expectations so far.
