[12:15] [Darkhawk] Heya
[15:09] Cyrilion ( joined #seed.
[15:09] [Cyrilion] Afternoon
[15:12] Tarragon ( joined #seed.
[15:13] [Tarragon] Hello
[15:13] [Cyrilion] Hey Tarra
[15:55] [Darkhawk] heya x2
[17:19] Dustman ( left irc: Quit: Leaving.
[17:25] [Darkhawk] The Orville annoys me. Could point out flaws and inconsistensies all day like the 2 people on the same keyboard Cyrilion did the other day. Don't think they had any science or consistency proofreader. Also has a conservative slant idden behind the token liberal values. Oh well. Bitter old, grumbling man.
[18:30] [der_Tommi] So, basically a Star Trek show then?
[18:31] [Darkhawk] uu uu u h huu uu uuuuh
[18:32] [Darkhawk] Dunno, I forget how ST was, or at least NG, which I haven't seen in 20 years. But it felt way better back then. Also less 'Thank God'...
[18:32] [Tarragon] I don't mind so much that it doesn't make sense if it's not pretending to be something like actually existing tech.
[18:33] [Tarragon] I might not mind anyway, but some things tend to be more annoying depending on your own expertise or hobbies :P
[18:34] [Darkhawk] It's just lazy at times, insulting. I mean, universal translators for ease, that's fine. But things and scenes that could not make sense, and people in earnest discussing things that would make them imbeciles if they did in the real world... It's not just science. And telegraphing to the viewers why they do as they do, while explaining it to someone who already knows on screen. Ugh.
[18:34] [Darkhawk] Can't be specific, because hey, spoilers ;)
[18:36] [Tarragon] Hey, my things are language and non-colloquial mistakes, myth and culture being butchered, and... well... probably quite a few other things. I don't mind :D I might be making corrections to the forms Ian's primary school just sent us for when we hand them in.
[18:36] [der_Tommi] Well, OK, I can't really say for sure if the Star Trek nonsense tech is consistent across episodes.
[18:37] [der_Tommi] But they sure liked inventing new stuff whenever convenient.
[18:41] [Darkhawk] ST had 2 giant, somewhat related problems. Consequences of teleporting/matter-generation not thought through, which would have changed everything and invalidated all they were doing, if it had been taking to its logical conclusion. But hey, longer talk/pet peeve than I'm willing to go into. I guess I'm 'somewhat' accepting of sloppy science. Not so much sloppy writing in general. I'm also accepting of mangling myth, because that
[18:41] [Darkhawk] happens every time a myth uis presented in comic or TV or whatever. Unfortunately. You have to get used to it ;)
[18:41] [Tarragon] Or I can just avoid stuff like Wonder Woman and Sparta.
[18:42] [Darkhawk] I guess I'll be able to complain about a lot of series soon, that have their season endings.
[18:42] [Darkhawk] Yeah, Sparta was extra painful to watch.
[18:42] [Tarragon] I haven't seen it ! :D
[18:42] [Tarragon] See how that works.
[18:42] [Darkhawk] Good for you ;)
[18:42] [der_Tommi] I don't think I've seen that..
[18:42] [Wheri] The one about naked buff dudes being buff and naked?
[18:42] [Darkhawk] You'd like it Tommi! Lots of well oiled, muscled young men
[18:43] [Darkhawk] Or ok, bearded. Dunno if that's good.
[18:43] [Tarragon] Yeah if I want to watch naked buff dudes I can just go on pornhub.
[18:43] [Wheri] Those have thordth, though.
[18:43] [Darkhawk] But you can't watch them KICK ASS like they do in Sparta!
[18:43] [Tarragon] You sure?
[18:43] [der_Tommi] Bearded's not that good.
[18:43] [Darkhawk] Not.. like that.. Not THAT much ass...
[18:43] [der_Tommi] Porn is too poorly acted and predictable.
[18:44] [Tarragon] Because there's some of those videos tagged rough that look a lot more like karate and show judo than traditional porn.
[18:45] [Darkhawk] I don't think they have the same special effects budget!
[18:45] [der_Tommi] I prefer my well-oiled muscle gods to be fully realized people.
[18:45] [Tarragon] The special effects budget can apparently be easily cut by half several times.
[18:46] [Tarragon] Another pet peeve: people misusing "decimated"
[18:48] [Tarragon] I'm fairly lukewarm about the misuse of "literally" though.
[18:48] [Wheri] Have you even seen it used correctly in media recently?
[18:48] [Tarragon] I haven't really seen it used in media recently.
[18:48] [Wheri] Fair enough.
[18:56] [Tarragon] FFS, one of my speakers stopped working.
[19:02] [Darkhawk] What happy coincidence, I'm selling mine before moving!
[19:21] [Tarragon] Naw, customs.
[19:21] [Tarragon] Should I play Samorost 3 next?
[19:22] [Darkhawk] Maybe? Do tell me if it's good
[19:23] [Tarragon] I highly doubt it's going to be bad, based on the last few games they put out.
[19:25] [Darkhawk] Yes, it's been consistent. But you never know
[20:00] [Tarragon] Alright, I like it.
[20:03] [Darkhawk] hehe
[22:04] [Tarragon] Off, night everyone.
