I hate them because not only are they an interfering bunch and war mongerers, but also because they are loud mouths, can hear them from Oz with their loud talk, but they are arrogant, more than the french, and pompous... that's for starters
Yeah, I thought about that, but I'm not sure anyone plays FTF gunboat... Gunboat was more or less an invention of the internet - it would just be awkward to have 7 people sit at a table and write orders...
Dating my age here, but I used to run a 'zine back in the 80s and 90s that featured regular dip, gunboat, and Machiavelli. We even played FTF gunboat a few times.....you need an 8th, game mastering....hilarious with open press read before and after the moves.....
Ummmm "I can make a flamthrower out of a pair of tube socks, two rubber bands, and a can of spray paint" well michael westin made a cell phone scanner out of a paper towel tube and a usb wire..... so i say my point is valid BTW macgyver was a spy.....
Everything Michael Weston makes works. The spycraft is spot on. The demolitions and devices expert just makes certain the production leaves out certain key steps in what they show and descrive so it can't be repreated at home. MacGyver's stuff was crap. Seriously, it was all fake and wouldn't do the stuff it was proported to do.
Also note that Burn Notice rarely has Michael doing these things under pressure to escape. His loft is his workshop and that is where most of the devices are assembled with solder and the like. MacGyver was more A-Team "build it with what is handy" than buy equipment and assemble something you have done time and time before.
Yes. I agree. It's gone a bit over the top. But I really like the addition of a new cast member (I don't know if that's permanent or not...) It has gone from being undoubtedly 20 times better than anything else on television to only about 10 times better than anything else. 50% as good, but still freaking awesome.
And the cell phone scanner was far and beyond the most ridiculous thing they've ever pulled.
Hey Draug, regarding his car, have you listened to the commentary tracks on the DVDs? They talk about regretting picking that car because it is a real PITA. I'm not sure of the exact details as it has been awhile. Just mentioning it.
Yes, there are slight differences between the Dodge Charger from each model year 1972, 72, 73 and 74. The car in Burn Notice is puzzling because it has features that are year-specific to 71, 72 and 73, so I think you're right. It certianly isn't a matching numbers car.
I've got to say the 1969-70 Dodge Charger is a much, much better looking car than the 71-74 model(s). Plus of course by 73-74 the engines were getting much less powerful due to changes in the law.
For curves, I like the 68-69 (General Lee) and it would look sharp in Black with white interior too. I always loved the GL as a car, but hated that stupid redneck rebel flag roof and 00 racing numbers paint job.
To everyone playing this game http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=31461, I would like to ask for a pause. I'm going away for the weekend and will be back approx Sunday 9 am AEST (Saturday 11 pm GMT). Please don't flame me as I can't ask this in game as it is a gunboat, and I would rather the players decide than ask for a moderator to do it which could leave some players confused.
