    Babylon 5 scripts being published - including the alternate B5 outline with Sinclair

    Yay, new B5!!! This deserves its own thread, though. People that aren't big enough fans to buy scripts might be interested.

    HTF Anime Discussion Part VIII

    I'm a big fan of Evangelion. I enjoy that it is confusing and obtuse in many ways, but on the surface it's pretty straightforward action. And I'm a sucker for End of the World and post-apocolypse stuff. I think it ranks in my top 10 which is still something like this (Escaflowne wasn't quite...

    Grave Of The Fireflies...Wow

    One of my favorite movies...even though it's really depressing. Sometimes it can make you feel like "Hey, what am I complaining about? My life rocks compared to these poor little kids" - thus oddly cheering you up a little bit even though it leaves you depressed. Too bad a lot of folks turn...

    Oh, now that I re-read, you're right. He says it's better but then later clarifies that he hasn't seen Fruits Basket. Personally I like Azumanga better though, as I find the characters more amusing, but oh well :D BTW not watching Fruits Basket is an anime-watcher sin. I thought JohnAD...

    Should I turn down this Bose offer?

    If it involves the word "Bose" you should turn it down. Unless you like pan & scanned sound. :p Do a quick search on Bose on the forum and you'll find piles of threads recommending some alternative small speakers.

    Looks like I lost my board subscriptions in the changeover to the new bb software. I don't chime in much these days but I do read the messages. No new anime here for quite some time. Nothing interesting me. But the wife keeps up on some shows - I've seen the first disc or so of of...

    Babylon 5 scripts being published - including the alternate B5 outline with Sinclair

    Looks like I lost my HTF subscriptions. Just chiming in because this thread helps me remember to buy the scripts! :D I still need to go back and buy a few of the older ones. The $10 off coupon is useful. I think I'll use it to catch up on a few of the ones I didn't get on release week.

    Woot, Hi-Def fansubbed anime??!?! I'm interested. I'd like to see some anime without deinterlacing or combing artifacts. :D Sounds like I need to get the HTPC up and running.

    Upscaling/HDef DVD Player merged thread

    The Zenith 318 has a very easy region-free mod. You have to download a small file, burn it to a CD, and then put it in the player. Then you set the region to 0 with the remote.

    Classic Media announces original GODZILLA, with some confusion

    Yay! About time. We took a 2 hour drive to see this in the theater a few years back when it came to Michigan. :D

    "Babylon 5" - Will there be a price drop?

    IIRC JMS tried to shoot the show protected for widescreen format, but his directors didn't always do it (especially season 1). So there's some less-than-perfect framing here and there.

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    Part of the reason is the limited amount of DVI inputs. Some folks have their HDTV receivers or other devices running over DVI. HDCP-DVI switchboxes are kinda expensive, especially with an IR receiver, and then you have to program macros to do the switching. So they run HDTV via DVI and the...

    "Babylon 5" - Will there be a price drop?

    Argh A thread about the best show ever aired on television has been derailed into a discussion about ebay. I started picking these up on release starting with season 3, using Triple pts weekend pre-orders on my Replay card at Suncoast. Effectively they cost me about $65 a piece. And worth...

    Agreed. I vastly preferred Banner 2 over Banner 1. Banner 1 was too many space battles. Banner 2 was back to the more character-driven plotlines and less stuff-getting-blown-up spectacles.

    On the subject of anime bootlegs: The very excellent anime bootleg FAQ: http://www.digital.anime.org.uk/piratefaq.html You sound like you did the right thing with ebay. I picked up volumes of Serial Experiments Lain for like $4 on ebay a long time back. I just got tired of trying to...

    Amazon itself is OK. Just don't pick up DVDs from the Amazon marketplace people. Don't chance ebay until you know how to tell real anime apart from chinese bootlegs. I suggest the DVDtalk forum anime bargains thread: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=454813 They track really...

    They didn't have it here, either. Nor did even Suncoast have it. Very strange. Stacey gave up and ordered it from DDD.

    Quick X-Files Guide Please

    I've been waiting for a reasonable price on X-files for ages. But I don't want a stripped down set. :thumbsdown: I guess I'll have to go hunting for the old sets. I have S2 I got on a deal anyway, I guess, I hadn't ebayed it yet (luckily).

    Babylon 5 scripts being published - including the alternate B5 outline with Sinclair

    I bit on this. Book 2 and the "Obsessed with the enemy" T-shirt with the $10 coupon. Now I'll have to wait for them to offer a deal on book 1 again :frowning:

    Babylon 5: Should I invest my money and time? ANSWER IN POST #500

    As much as I ended up liking Buffy & Angel (especially Angel), they clearly didn't have a lot of plans. At best the arcs are seasonal. Angel manages a little more inter-season arc-based storytelling, but it seems pretty clear to me it was being made up on the fly, season to season (kinda like...

    I'm in Alanna's boat. With a kid on the way (with no health insurance), fulltime school and fulltime work for both of us, we don't have the cash to spend on anime. Kong, Even then, most price drops are caused by box sets coming out. I mean, they have 1 disc of 7 sitting in the store for $20...

    I just wait on most anime releases these days, just like video games. Prices now drop so fast there's no benefit to being an early adopter. I wince to see volumes Stacey paid $22 for drop to like

    I guess maybe. But realistically that forum is almost 100% about TV shows and programming being currently broadcast.

    Babylon 5 scripts being published - including the alternate B5 outline with Sinclair

    I don't have any use for scripts either. But the commentaries, outlines, etc will make it worth it to me. PS I think the proper place is indeed HT Software - TV Shows. It's the scripts and commentaries for the TV show (available on DVD). Where else would it go? :D

    FROM JMS on the moderated newsgroup. DISCUSS. :D :D For years, I've been at conventions and had fans come up with photocopied scripts they'd purchased from script stores or dealers for $20 a pop, many times in poor condition...with loose or missing pages, hard to read, and thought...

    I sold off my old Bebop set for $80ish on ebay some months back ago to convert to the new discs. I will get them cheap, sub $20, so I won't be losing that much money on the changeover. Bebop music = ownage. Bebop 5.1 = has to be better.
