"Futurama - Day of the Tentacle" is not out yet, but I've found a DVD rip. Might as well check it out, no? Can't wait to hear Kif again :>

Like reported on my German blog, the new seasons of House and Heroes are set to start airing on September 16 and22, respectively.
As for QI, there's been no word on a specific airdate for episode 1 of series E yet. Meh.
The new season started airing in Germany yesterday. New season, that'd be #18. Yes, we're a whole year behind, why do you ask? XD We're also getting it on Sundays only, two episodes at a time, at 6:10 PM. I know, we're weeeeird ;)
I liked both of them (The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer and Jazzy and the Pussycats), even though I feel a slight soap opera-ish tendency going on there, however, I'm not sure whether that's new or not. Anyway. A lot of the gags were spot-on and had [ profile] yamasagi laughing out loud. Nice =)

Actually, I think the dub really got better now that the translator is someone else. Both [ profile] yamasagi and me didn't find anything really stupid/wrong/strange sounding in the new episodes, and believe me, we usually do notice. 'Course, it still might be wishful thinking on my part, but I'll be sure to have an eye/ear on that every Sunday.

When mum told me she and bro saw the Simpsons movie, I was like "Yeah, good for you. I hate you both". Then, she was like "Oh, they were showing it in English, too". Of course, I had to explain to her that I'm trying not to watch any part of that franchise in its original language because I'm certain it'd put me off the dub forever. And I don't want that. I know the dub is half-assed, but I like it. Hey, Kai #2's in almost every episode, if only for like, two sentences.
Useless fact: Kai #2 studied to play the saxophone at the Jazz School in Munich. Can you see why seeing Lisa Simpson play her instrument always makes me giggle? ^_~

Heh. Did anyone read that? Season 19 is supposed to feature guest appearances by both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Hey, this means that next year, we'll be able to hear both of them dubbed. Hooray... not O_O;;;

Also, RTLII has started airing the first "Heroes" trailers that actually feature some dubbed dialogue. So far, we heard Peter, Nathan and Claire. And apart from Nathan, who could've used a lower voice, they all sound like the people who cast the voice actors had actually seen the series beforehand. No Hiro or Ando yet, and I've read on some forum that they're holding back Mohinder as well. Oh my.
I mainly compiled this lil' list for personal use, but I thought some of you might like it, too. So, here goes:

Heroes (season 2) September 24

Stargate Atlantis (season 4) September 25

House (season 4) September 25

Qi (series E) September 21

Well, I guess it's time to warm up those BT clients and clear some HDD space, for the summer is over and our heroes will be back very soon ^__^

Oh! "Who wants to be a Superhero?" season 2 finale in two days. Can't wait =)

And finally, expect pictures of my Doctor Who toys to arrive tomorrow. [ profile] yamasagi and me had an awesome unpacking and tryout session this evening. And to be honest, more stuff was ordered as well, because my dear fiance just couldn't resist that black remote control Dalek. Bless him <3

Well, we finished Heroes. The whole goddamn first season in two weekends X_x

Possible spoliers ahead )

On an entirely different note, we expect to buy one of these this week. Cool, eh? :D
On Saturday night, we started watching "Heroes". [ profile] mirmingi recommended it and since just about everyone else seems to be into it, I decided we should join the frenzy.
So we watched
And watched.
And watched.
And... you get the picture ^^;;;
Yesterday, we started after lunch and only paused for dinner. Our projector had a long workday XD
We're up to episode thriteen (which will be next).
And if that's not an indication of whether we like it or not, lemme say this:
Holy CRAP.
I don't think I've ever watched something this intense and gripping. The storyline is totally unpredictable - unless you're [ profile] yamasagi, but he is hopeless anyway. I wouldn't have thought that something as generic as "story about people with super powers" could be translated into something this memorable. Characters? Brilliant. Plot? Exciting as hell and makes you curse the human need for sleep ;)
So... yes, we love it. Hard.
Thanks to [ profile] mirmingi for talking about it and making me wanna try it out. I won't forget ^_^
