The Final Countdown: Character Inspiration, Cobie Smulders and GameStop’s Policies

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see characters that are based on real people.

“Every story you’ve ever watched or read includes characters that are, in reality, based on somebody the writer knew. Nobody can invent a bunch of human beings out of whole cloth, so writers take real people and change their names (note that it’s much more fun when it’s someone the author hated). But you’d be surprised to see how totally out of left field the real-life inspirations often are.”

The Final Countdown: Ninja Turtles, Game Over and PS Now

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the best and worst Ninja Turtles games ever made.

“The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have had success with pretty much everything they’ve tried. The Turtles have left big two-toed footprints in the world of comics, TV, toys and movies, but ultimately the medium they’re most at home in may just be video games. There have been a lot of TMNT games, almost 50 by my count, and a shocking number of them have been good to great (although there’s been a few turtle turds as well).”

The Final Countdown: Rags to Riches, Rambo and Nintendo Woes

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the best rags to riches movies.

“Everyone loves a good rags to riches story, when someone starts out at the bottom of the world and rises to the top. Some of these tales come from real life, and have been adapted into film. Others are invented by Hollywood itself, and become myth after release. The following films are some of the most classic and beloved examples of our love affair with getting rich, and all can be watched way more than once. If I’ve forgotten any that are close to your heart, feel free to suggest them in the comments.”

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see TV shows you need to watch until the end.

“Everyone talks about wonderful opening credits — the breathtaking landscapes of the dreary deserts on The Bridge, or the faces of female inmates and that awesome Regina Spektor song (hey, I’m a fan) on Orange is the New Black, or even the awful ones, like the painted flyaway victims on The Leftovers.

The Final Countdown: Movie Plots, Cheap Cars and Destiny’s Scale

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see dumb things movies do to advance the plot.

“Hollywood has endless ways of making us feel bad about ourselves — movie heroes and villains alike are always sexier, richer, funnier, and far more capable of kung fu than we are in real life. That’s why pointing out the dumb mistakes that movie characters make is one of our favorite things to talk about.”

If you don’t know what we mean, look no further than video game advertisements. For decades, out-of-touch marketers who have never held a controller in their lives have tried to come up with ad campaigns that make their game seem “hip” or “edgy.” The results are, let’s just say, awkward …
