YOU'RE ALL FEEDING HIS EGO AND ONE DAY HE SHALL PERFORM A HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF THE CBSi OFFICES AND THERE WILL BE NOTHING ON TV EXCEPT FOR THAT SMUG FACE OF HIS. KNOW THAT IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT.

He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark beard. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Dan Ryckert.

You delivered that reference a lot better then I was about to.

@rorie: It takes up so much memory though. Skada is a much better option, especially for people with lower end rigs.

I figured it out. Dan is a boy, he's a 12 year old that never grew up. The way he eats, how he doesn't drink coffee or tea, he never tries new foods. He loves wrestling and has action figures and still has his pogs. His general lack of life knowledge. He loves all the things a 12 year old from the 80s would love and his tastes never evolved.

Not saying any one of those things are bad or childish. But if you described the personality traits of Dan Rykert to me out of context I would assume you were talking about a kid.

God dammit Dan....

...Alright guys, where do I start? What do I watch? Should I watch any of those documentaries on netflix? are there any documentaries on the history that are genuine, where people talk about what really happened, out of character type stuff?

What are you interested in? Wrestling has been going on a long time. Do you want stuff that will inform you about the current product or more retrospective information?

There's not that much available on Netflix but the Ultimate Warrior doc is very good.

I'm not sure if it is on Netflix but if you want summary of an in ring and out of ring feud the Bret Hart/HBK Greatest Rivalries documentary is great.

The CM punk one also deals with a lot of in/out of the ring.

Neither of those is on Netflix unfortunately, neither is the new Paul Heyman one which I highly recommend as well.

Both, really. The only thing I know about wrestling is when I played WWF games with my friend in the 90's and one time I turned on Smackdown and saw Eddie Gurrero lift Bigshow over his head. (how I remember those names I have no idea). I want to catch up and watch what of the last 6 months has been good, but also learn about the most awesome stuff from the past, particularly the attitude era which sounds pretty cool.

So in the new premium video demo derby Dan and Drew play the original MGS demo. I've never played an MGS game and listening to Dan try to explain the madness to Drew was hilarious. I would seriously love a MGS series with them playing through all 4 games or something along those lines. (not gonna say it) Dan bringing the knowledge and Drew going in cold. Just from the demo I think it would be pretty great, and it might just get me caught up enough to be interested in the Phantom Pain.

Edit: boom
