Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
I was thinking about re-watching Cowboy Bebop but thought better of it due to the fact that after a couple of minutes of each episode I'll remember what will happen and lose interest. Does anyone know of an anime that has a similar style of lighthearted gun toting and martial arts?

Black Lagoon?

Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
At the moment, apart from Doctor Who and New tricks i don't watch any TV as i think at the moment TV is pretty well crap, I am so sick of reality TV shows i just don't get the interest in them.

So the DVDs and online programs i watch are

Top Gear Challenges
New Tricks
Doctor Who(classic era)
Stargate Atlantis, i will never know why they canceled it in favor of the crap show that was Universe. They should never have tried to have done a BSG show it was just utter crap. Atlantis was really good and had some truly fantastic characters and heartbreaking moments.

Transformers Prime which is actually really good.
I have just finished watching Gundam wing and Endless Waltz, i know a lot of people dislike it but i enjoyed it.
Paltarbor(spelling) 2, This took me by suprise and got me into anima, it has a brillant plot and is very well animated. It really is a good film.
Samurai Jack, just epic.

Deep space 9 for me really gets good from the series 2 final, when we first get to see the Dominion in action. After that the best star trek series. B5 is still really good better than a lot of the crud we get on TV today. I can only watch it up till season 4. I think it should of ended there as season 5 was pretty bad.

Are there any proper Scifi shows being made and i am not talking about things like twilight etc, that's not science fiction. The only one i can think of that is still being made is Doctor Who, even the SyFy channel(UK) hardly shows anything science fiction these days.

There will be ever an ending to Doctor Who? D:

Doctor Who doesn't really have an ongoing story arc, so no, it doesn't have a particular place to end.

For me, it's just watching the Doctor's wacky antics. The guy (whomever is playing him at the moment) is just fun to watch. And to see what utterly insane scheme he will pull off next.

I heard it took the Doctor a while to actually screw something in with his sonic screwdriver. :p

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Doctor who does have some story arcs new series normally does have a story arc, but the classic series sometimes had a story arc covering a couple of stories. The latest series has dropped the complicated story arcs for individual small movie episodes.

No its nothing like mass effect 3. The original series had no story arcs per say, it was when the show came back in 2005 they introduced series story arcs, now for the current series they wanted to try something different and make each episode a mini blockbuster movie, which will lead up to the shows big 50th anniversary episode. Anyway a tv show doesnt have to have overlay complicated story arcs like BSG to be good. As others have pointed out what makes doctor who appealling is the characters and each story is something different, one do can be a comedy, next one is a gothic horror style and you also get emotinal stories.

I want to dust off my old pitch soaked stick, spark a match and then start swinging with fiery abandon....But alas! I do try so hard to not flame people here. So I will avoid this particular subject, and pretend that I didn't just use this particular segment of my post to just fill space and make me seem more interesting than I actually am.

I watched a little of it, and it doesn't really grab me the same way Bebop and Trigun did. It's just something about the style and feel of those series that I can't describe, yet want to see again.
Meh, I might just watch ChronoCrusade agai- No. No I won't. I'm not fond of crying at the end. Perhaps I'll watch Clannad inst-   :blah:

Go for the OVA directly, IIRC there was no need to watch the series to enjoy it.

So much blood... oh yes.
