Morning Discussion

By Alice O'Connor, Jul 29, 2009 7:00am PDT While The Dark Knight and Watchmen are lauded by punch-happy moviegoers as the salvation of live-action comic book adaptations, one gem died a lonely death on ABC Family this year--The Middleman. Described by People as "A happy X-Files" and bubbling with luchadores, an evil Dr. Phil, zombie fish and the best parallel universe episode ever made, The Middleman was smart, funny, and sadly seen by no one.

Rejoice, sinners! For all twelve episodes were released this week on DVD, so you can now repent and atone for your past sins. I'll forgive you. This time.

The best comic book adaptation is of course Ghost World, by the way.

    Me and a select group of friends are massive fans of Pandora Tomorrow (PC) Multiplayer. Its been a little gem for a while now that we bust out and play and have immense fun. (I'm talking of course about the Spy vs Mercenaries). Recently we were playing it and we sorta realised its quite buggy and that is holding it back quite alot.

    I then found out that Chaos Theory and Double Agent have the same game mode which some how i didn't realise. And i was wondering if anybody was a fan of this game mode and had tried them all. From what i say in reviews, Chaos Theory is very similar to Pandora Tomorrow but Double Agent has changed quite a bit (they say for the worst).

    Is Double Agent better than the previous ones, and if not is Chaos Theory better than Pandora tomorrow and does it fix alot of the bugs? Which is the definitive version?
