            • No, but seriously, playing through the entire series again after having (once again) beaten Metal Gear Solid V is making me appreciate the series’ side characters a lot more. It’s not ACTUALLY a series about Big Boss and his sons. It’s a series about Big Boss’s legacy and the people who were affected by it. In Metal Gear Solid, Snake works with Hal “Otacon” Emmerich. Thirty years earlier, in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Naked Snake works with his father, Huey, and they’re largely identical in most ways, so identical that one has to wonder for a minute if Snake was the only subject in the Patriots’ cloning program. But if you played MGS2, you already know they /aren’t/ the same because Huey goes nuts and drowns himself and tries to drown his stepdaughter in a vengeful murder-suicide after he catches his second wife molesting Hal. “Revenge” is explored in MGS5, where we learn that Hal & Huey are pretty much only identical in appearance.

              • In MGS5, Huey has a bad habit of stabbing literally everyone he knows in the back. He tries to put Otacon, two years old at the time, in the cockpit of Metal Gear Sahelanthropus to be a test pilot, which his wife objects to somewhat. Naturally, Huey puts his wife in a Peace Walker AI Pod and batcavein suffocates her. This is AFTER he had already betrayed Naked Snake and MSF by letting XOF come aboard Mother Base while Snake was off on a mission. THEN he betrays XOF to go work for Snake again. Then he bizarrely decides to let a vocal cord parasite loose on Mother Base because I guess betraying people is in his nature? What I’m trying to say is that Huey is an asshole. And we learned already that HUEY’s father was one of the designers of the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. But Otacon isn’t really like either of them, to the point that by the end of the series, he’s like the only one of Solid Snake’s allies who hasn’t stabbed him in the back.

            • You know what doomed Solid Snake’s sex life? The writers’ inability to commit. Meryl dies in one of the endings of Metal Gear Solid, which is why she doesn’t appear in MGS2 and why Snake is a miserable loner still.

              • Come Metal Gear Solid 4, we learn that Meryl does, in fact, still exist, and she and Snake are apparently on very bad terms, so bad that at the end of the game she decides to marry the guy with a bad gut who’s been batcaveting himself for three games across two generations, while Snake, who has just months to live because of cloning-related accelerated aging, decides to become Otacon’s heterosexual life partner and raise an adopted daughter with him, who then goes on to work with a Cyborg Ninja who’s trying to prevent Donald Trump from being elected President.

                • Metal Gear is so batcaveing funny, the first game ends with Snake and Meryl driving off into the sunset, with Snake using his real name for the first time since joining the army, vowing to live every day like it’s his last. Naturally, the second game opens with Snake doing soldier kiwi again, having been running an anti-Metal Gear terrorist organization for the last two years, Meryl is nowhere to be found and he’s objectively unhappy, and then they have you play as a new character anyway for most of the game.

                                  • Watching "Way of the House Husband". Its animation is as minimal as it gets. It's more motion comic than usual animation. I guess they are fixed on recreating the manga panels. There are a ton of static images with pans and simple mouth animations. Sometimes there is a ton of shaking implying intense action but it looks odd when everything shakes but nothing moves. It's fine I guess but I had different expectations. Also an episode is divided into several smaller episodes that also recreate each manga chapter as closely as it can get. The pacing feels a tad off as the story starts and stops every 3 minutes.

Maybe I've seen the first Toxic Avenger but I have seen so many clips of the movie my memory isn't sure about watching it at all. All assimilated by popculture osmosis.

                                    • @adiwan But Troma have managed to make feature films for a half-million dollar budget pretty reliably all the while, not inflation adjusted - $500,000 in 80s money for 80s movies, and still $500k in 2010s money for 2010s movies. And that has included some endearing jank, like a car flip/explosion they've used constantly since 1991 or so.
