  1. In the original series, my favorite is "In Praise of Pip" Jack Klugman portrays a deeply flawed father seeking to spend more time with his dying son and redemption. In the 1985 series, it is a toss up between "NIghtcrawlers" about a crazy Vietnam veteran who has the superhuman power to make his nightmares come to life and "Her Pilgrim Soul" about a scientists who finds a way to communicate with a soulmate from a previous life.

  2. Doctor Zero is my favorite superhero. It was published by Epic, an imprint of Marvel comics, in 1988. Okay, he is more of an anti-hero, or an outright supervillain in his actions. He is an ancient, egotistical psychic vampire who despises the human race. He wears a cape to prevent the stupid humans from destroying the world. I was fascinated by his story for some reason. Perhaps I was in such in an angry, cynical mood.

  3. Hello everyone,

     

    Our Friendly Local Game Store has ended in-store gaming until further notice. I feel gratitude it is still in business in the recession that has just started. Are you still doing role playing games? Will you all meet in person, or will you practice social distancing and meet online instead?

     

    Live long and prosper!

  4. FYI

    Beginning Monday, March 16, all the gaming tables will be closed for the At Ease Game Store in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. All tournaments, all events will be cancelled until further notice. The store will now officially close earlier at 7 p.m. instead of 11 p.m.

     

    May you all stay healthy,

    Conrad

  5. This is just one man's opinion, and you could disagree with me. After watching "The Last Jedi", my expectations were lowered. In my opinion, TLJ was worse than "Revenge of the Sith". RotS is a bad movie, just not as episodes 1 & 2. Overall, the fun parts outnumbered the non-fun parts. I wish it was as good as Avengers: Endgame, but that did not happen. I disagree with the movie critics, and I give a slight recommendation for others to watch this movie.

  6. "Later in the evening Killroy had a classic Jason Bourne / Jack Bauer-esque solo adventure, successfully (and rather easily) reclaiming from a drug gang's crack house a mystery loot box of unmentionables stolen from the Societatis ex Monstrum Interfectorum. He even resisted to urge to look in the box, which he had been forbidden from doing by his handler. Having established his trustworthiness and reliability, Killroy has been accepted as a member of the Societatis...secretly of course. Killroy never even pulled a gun; he roughed up and intimidated his way through the gang members. It was pretty epic."

     

    I agree. Strategically, it would have been wiser to knock out the sleeping gangsters one at a time. However, Killroy walked into the crack house without fear. He was willing to go in, pick up that Amazon box those foolish thugs had pilfered, then go home without incident. Then several idiots decided to damage his suit with their pistols and shotguns,  so they forced him to get busy. I wished I said that Saturday night, "Though I walk through the valley of the shades of death, I will fear no evil."

     

    I can arrive early 3 pm @ At Ease Games in December.
