    Welcome to the Austin Powers (tm) Collectible Card Game, a psychedelic multi-player gaming experience. This cheeky little box contains two 30-card preconstructed decks ready to play.

    Collect all 140 groovy cards from "The Spy Who Shagged Me" depicting your favorite characters, scenees, and quotes from the movie. Choose cards from your collection to customize your own smashing decks and have a swinging good time with a bunch of your friends. Oh, Behave!"

    On a level of cringe to stupid that is both.
    Oh, behave.

    I'll try to. I bought it if I ever do that card game Youtube channel I've been thinking about. I think I want to call it The Card Board.

    That was a reference to this.



    Anyway, speaking of that...I hope there aren't any more moments in S9 that give me nausea like episode 4 did. Don't get me wrong, I liked the episode overall. But that scene...ugh.

    I love that the My Little Pony theme can come after everything from "Twilight's been dragged down through a hellish portal to who knows where, everything's on fire, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?!" to today's...

    OVERDUE. LIBRARY. BOOK. Those are serious business. Let's hope she doesn't have to face Conan The Librarian.

    Yeah, sometimes the "problem" of the episode is....a bit silly, to say the least.

    That's the point...as OCD as Twilight can be sometimes, "silly" things can seem quite serious to her.

    Yes, it is important to her, but is it important enough for the audience.

    I thought it was a decent episode. Not one of the greatest sure, but it was good enough. Fun fact: it also proves what I've long suspected. It's been "about" 3 years since the first episode. Twilight said the fine would be "about" 1000 bits. We know it's 28 bits per month. 3 years is 1008 bits. She just didn't know it capped at 1 month so she had to pay 28.

    That's not the only thing that indicates about how much time has passed, but it's neat that the math matches so exactly. Yes, I'm an egghead.

    Math is important, it's the same reason that Fry had so much money after 1000 years of being frozen.

    Watched the Into The Spiderverse movie from Redbox. Absolutely nuts. It reminded me of when the dimensional mirror shattered in the Reflections MLP arc.

    It's amazing how Sony got it right so spectacularly after getting movies with multiple villains so very wrong twice. It definitely is a great movie.

    Pegasus wings really are hands. I mean we already knew that (the "fingers" are actual fingers with bones), but it's still cool to see in action.

    I think them bending back so much might be the most amazing thing.

    When will the show have deep, complex characters, great worldbuilding and lore, and well-done drama? I’m talking about something like Breaking Bad or The Wire.

    Or am I just gonna have to find another show if I want that?

    Unfortunately this isn't that kind of show. I will say that it would have been nice to have some of that, but it's the usual kid friendly kind of drama, if anything.

    If you say it doesn't have complex characters, great worldbuilding, and lore...you obviously haven't watched it.

    I wouldn't say the characters are super complex, the world building is not very good (two major characters only have one episode dedicated to them to actually learn about them) with other lands outside of the country only visited in the movie, and the lore is only decent at best.

    I mean, there's only so much you can do under a TV-Y rating.
