Many moons ago, we had a hangout zone topic. It was intended to be a spam topic type thread that PT had, but it never really went anywhere, and purged within six months. So I figure we can give this thread a reboot, and use this as a replacement for the same tired visitor logs we used to do. Basically anything goes in here, we can talk about normal stuff and have actual discussions that actually mean something. So lets get started!

For the past couple of months, (since I moved basically), I've been rewatching Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. I'm already on my second rotation! Last rotation, I made it up to the end of Season 5, and then restarted after that. Now I'm midway through Season 3, which was one of the best seasons on the show. I've been thinking, we did do an elimination thread after our Full House elimination threads were finished. I've been thinking of rebooting the Sabrina eliminations threads, and this time follow through instead of drop the idea quickly like we did last time. I know last time we stopped it early because you weren't as familiar with the episodes as you thought. But I kind of want to restart it, and keep it going until the end this time. What do you say, do you want to reboot that thread? It would be interesting which episodes would make the top 20 for the best episodes ever. But if you don't want to restart that, we don't have to. ;)

Also, I've been thinking of going back into bashfic writing. Not necessarily for Full House, (though if I ever manage to find a way to squeeze in time, I might consider it), but for say a book series I read on and off. I've been meaning to at least write an outline of what my story should be like, but I can never find time to do it. Either that or I can't think of where to begin writing. XD;;; So be on the look out for that when that comes. Plus, you never did read my Full House bashfic called "Reap What You Sow." It's about Jesse losing his radio job, his band, and his Smash Club, all in one story. In other words, everything coming back to bite him in the ass as karma for all the years he treated everyone like s***. Here's the bashfic if you want to read it:

Reap What You Sow
Part 1: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13LBdFv12bucKKe8VQDzYo0ngx2Z0ztImWVv2LoznoeE/pub
Part 2: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TcmT7kJKMZfzLKMHJJDMfo0eZy4SJGG2cCymqlW1KCQ/pub
Part 3: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11rmKtCH7LpmNJFjG_x7DrWakYbtN807ynYDZOVfwcIc/pub

Whenever you find the time, let me know what you think of it. There, and that's my new thread on my new board in a nutshell. Beats a piddly visitor log, doesn't it? ^_~

Or if you're too busy, and don't want to get bogged down with too many threads, we don't have to reboot the Sabrina elimination games. It would just take too long. Still check out my bashfic above. It's a really funny one, that I'm sure you'll get a kick out of. ^_~

Also, our visitor log has now finally purged. I couldn't even tell you how many posts we lost on our main accounts. Hell I even lost a lot of posts on my alt accounts. XD;;; We didn't lose too many posts on our Stone Marker and Paintbrush accounts, which is surprising. I'm pretty sure our purge rate has changed now too. We are now at a 12 day purge rate, just like the Kamen boards. Oh well, more time to stretch out threads for bumping. And we've got this thread now too, which doesn't require a sign in sheet. ^_~

Finally, the long awaited Hangout topic! I look forward to our many discussions and PT s*** talking in this topic! Also, we can only talk about Pokemon, heavy metal music, and how the country we lives in sucks. Since that's what TAW said that we can only talk about. XD

And I would to rewatch Sabrina again! I haven't watched episodes in 5-6 years. It's always great to go back to your favorite shows after you haven't watched them for so long. Obviously Season 1-4 were the best years of the show, but I'm thinking of giving Season 5 and onward an second chance. Especially since I didn't watch most of those episodes. A lot of those episodes are probably weak, but there are probably a few nice episodes in them. Season 3 is indeed the best on the show too. That is the season that contained all the best characters like Val and Libby before they were booted off in S4. And I wouldn't mind giving the Elimination Thread an second chance either. It wasn't really successful the first time because we had a lot of stuff going on. Now that there are minimal threads, it might actually work out. ^_~

And I will take a look at the bashfics that you linked. It's been a long time since we posted about them, but I do miss all the s*** that Jesse was subjected too. Because he deserved any kind of misfortune for being such an arrogant and useless jerk on the show. XD I will take a look at Part 1 this week and post my thoughts. ^_~

I've noticed that my Visitor Log finally purged also. Now I am down to 408 posts. I thought it was going to bess less than that, but I have a lot of posts in the other topics on my board. But it's nice to cut back on topics and only keep the important ones. I look forward to our conversations in this topic. ^_~

Yup, the discussions in this thread should only consist of Pokemon, metal, why we hate our country, religion, and why we're a******s for ruining game threads and bashing celebrities too much. Hey, we must follow TAW's orders for thread discussions, right? XD;;;

And yeah, I haven't watched Sabrina in three years. It's nice to watch them again, it's a very underrated show. Nobody talks about it much, yet everyone loses their s*** over Full House and their ridiculous spin off show. Seasons 1-4 are the best years of the show, Seasons 5-6 are pretty good in their own way, only Season 7 sucked. Even to this day, I still can't bring myself to watch it. The final season was just terrible. Season 2 is my favorite of the show, some of the shows best episodes were from that season. Season 3 would be a close second for best season. I'm almost done with Season 4 now. I should finish that up in about a day or so. I'd love to give the elimination threads another chance. It didn't work out the first time around because I know you weren't quite as familiar with the episodes as you thought, and we had too many threads going. But now that we've cut back on threads, it will be much easier to follow. We can give it another chance. And even if you aren't super active, you could post just in that one thread only on your very busy days. Then take care of the rest of the threads like we normally do whenever you get free time. ^_~

And yes, I loved our bashfic discussion. I miss torturing Jesse in every single way possible. He deserved to be taken down 500 notches and knocked off his pedestal, being the arrogant a****** that he really was. In the bashfic I linked above, he loses literally everything he's ever "worked" for. It's essentially torture porn, (no, not literal mods), for Jesse. XD;;; I can't wait for you to read it. ^_~

At long last, my visitor log has purged, and I am now down to 510 posts on my main account, and 489 posts on this account. I thought I was gonna lose more than that, but I guess the other open threads save that total. It's nice to cut back on threads. I also look forward to our conversations in this topic. ^_~

Indeed, Sabrina is an very underrated show! It's one of those shows that I can watch after having an bad day and feeling better about it. It was such an interest premise and the cast was filled with an different variety of characters. I never really gave Season 5-7 an chance because I didn't like how Aunt Zelda and Hilda's had reduced screentime. But I've seen other fans of the show say that these seasons had an handful of good episodes. But the show made it to seven seasons, so those seasons had to have some sort of success. ^_~

On the other hand, Full House is complete crap. I can't believe it has an higher score than Sabrina on IMDB. 90% of the episodes are boring and filled with obnoxious jokes and characters. It's basically the white family version of the Cosby Show. The only reason Full House was so highly regarded was because of fans who remember the show through their rose-tinted glasses. I use to be one of those fans who loved this show a long time ago. But when I rewatched it when I got older, I realized how much crap it was. The show's main weakness was that most of the episode plots were bland and the characters were poorly written. Seriously, there's zero character growth from the beginning of the show to the end. All of the characters have the same damn personality traits. Jesse was obsessed with his hair and Elvis, Joey had his dumbass character impressions, Danny was the neat freak, Michelle was the supposedly cute character, and DJ was socially awkward. Stephanie and Kimmie were the only characters that never really got on my nerves. Other shows like the Golden Girls had characters who had the same traits throughout the show too. But they never got on your nerves because the writers never overused them. Even Fuller House is crap and only for the fans who are blinded by their nostalgia. -_-

Also, I saw GM1's weird post on King's Quest where he asked to send his sword to your house. That was an really weird and awkward request. Although it doesn't surprise me because he asked me something similar in the past. I don't remember all the details, but I believe he asked for my phone number. Good thinking about never giving your personal info out. You wouldn't want someone like Brown showing up on your doorstep with Survivor tapes. XD ^_~

I'm currently on Season 6 now, and it's quite good actually! It almost has the same feel Seasons 1-4 had, and magic is used a s*** ton, something even Season 5 lacked a bit. Season 5 also lacked Harvey, save for a few episodes. Good news is he returns to the show for good in Season 6. Zelda becomes a professor at Sabrina's college and Hilda buys the coffee house Sabrina and Josh work at. So they do still have a role in Seasons 5-6. It's not until Season 7 they're both removed from the show altogether, along with Miles. Season 7 is the only truly bad season of the show. I still can't bring myself to watch it. Seasons 5-6 has its bright spots, and should be given a chance. If the show had been cancelled in Season 6 instead of tack on one more unneeded season, then the show never would've jumped the shark. Regardless, Sabrina is a very underrated show, and doesn't get nearly as much credit as it deserves. ^_~

Totally agree about Full House. That show is overrated to the max. How that show lasted eight seasons is beyond me. Only Stephanie and Kimmy were the only two likable characters, the rest I could give a s*** less about. I just can't get over Becky and Jesse still being married after all these years. No one with any shred of self respect would stay married to a narcissistic prick like Jesse. And I s*** you not, Joey, wait for it.... has kids. I heard about it somewhere from some of the Fuller House watches. Joey is married and has kids. No. No no no. I refuse to believe it. I refuse to accept that as canon. I refuse to see Joey as a family man. Who in the right mind would marry a manchild like Joey? I don't even want to know how badly his kids turned out. O_O The Golden Girls was better. Thank god for TV Land reruns of it. ^_~

And yes I got a request to give out my personal information on the other board. I'm not telling you my address or other very private information. And for what, a sword I literally do not want? That's borderline stalkerish. Good thing I didn't buy into it, because otherwise s***Stain would've taken it upon himself to send me Survivor tapes. Though I don't think he'd think to lurk on King's Quest. XD;;; By the way, it's not GM1. ^_~

Don't forget to check out my bashfic above by the way. ^_~

I just realized Sabrina episodes are on Hulu! This is great news, because I didn't know where else to rewatch episodes. XD You use to be able to find all the episodes on Youtube, albeit with bad quality. But I'm going to start from the beginning and at least finish it through Season 4. Speaking of Sabrina, apparently there's going to be an new TV series called "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" airing in October of this year. It didn't read much about it yet, but it seems to be an darker and more supernatural take of teenager Sabrina Spellman. Not sure how I feel about them taking a darker take on the series, but I'm willing to give it a chance since I love supernatural TV shows and Sabrina is one of my favorite TV series. Pretty fitting that I only found out about this a few days ago just as we were talking about Sabrina. ^_~

I love Full House bashing and it never gets old to me. The entire FH fanbase is so insufferable. The entire fanbase is filled with 30-40 years old that are blinded by nostalgia. You can't even say one bad thing about this show with this fanbase without getting the TAW treatment. They were even more insufferable by the time Fuller House came around. I gave up on that show after 5 episodes. I thought the first couple of episodes were pretty good with the reunion of the old casts, but then it turned into the same old crap as the original FH episodes. Almost none of the original cast except for Kimmie, Stephanie, and DJ were in the show. And Kimmie does not have the same charm as her younger self. DJ's boys were extremely boring and the middle child was an terrible actor. Was Joey's marriage announced in Fuller House? I never got that far in the series, but I'm sure it was an contrived plot point to make the show seem edgy and cutting edge. Because I sure as hell don't see Joey as a family man either. This guy literally accomplished nothing in the 8-year span of Full House. I think we can copy FHR's epic review about Joey from his "Joey's Funny Valentine" review. XD

I do miss the Full House IMDB boards though. Some of the posters there were almost as funny as FHR. I will never forget how they called Jesse "Hermes" all the time and they had an nickname for Michelle that I can't seem to remember. ^_~ And don't worry, I didn't forget your bashfics either! I promise to review one of them this weekend. ^_~

I usually just watch them on Dailymotion. I'll restart the rotation tomorrow and go back to Season 1. Because I REFUSE to watch Season 7. Some of the Season 6 episodes I've watched I've noticed are the original airings. That means the original music is kept! The DVD just ruins the episodes with edited out music. All the music except for the live performances are completely removed. It just ruins the whole scene. The episodes with the original music are much better. I've vaguely heard of the new TV series. I guess I'll give it a chance, but I don't have a lot of high hopes for it. A lot of these reboots so far, (Full House, Girl Meets World), are really disappointing. But I suppose it's worth a try when it's released. ^_~

I love Full House bashing, the Full House fanbase is filled with 30-40 year olds for literally only like the show because it's nostalgic for them. They only see the positives through their pink colored glasses, and don't see the show for what it really is. A s*** show. I hate the Full House fanbase. I never saw the revival series, I only read the Season 1 reviews of them on FHR. And even Billy didn't want to continue the reviews as soon as he was done with Season 1. The FHR rant about Joey from "Joey's Funny Valentine" never gets old. OMG, it's hysterical. XD;;;

And yes I remember the Full House boards on IMDB. XD;;; Those people were.... nuts. I hope they're just trolls because I can imagine what creeps they are in real life. O_O I'm sure you'll love my bashfic. I'm thinking of writing another one. Not sure if I ever told you about it, but I've been thinking of writing one where Danny, Jesse, and Becky go on Maury Povich and find out who's the REAL father of Nicky and Alex. Might start it soon, just need to get the motivation. But if I do start it, I'll hold off posting it until you've read the bashfic I linked above. ^_~

At long last, here's my feedback for "Reap What You Sow (Part 1)". ^_~

So the scene opens with Danny and Becky sucking lips on the couch. A pretty fitting way to rub it into Jesse's face after his loser self lost everything in the previous episode. I bet it would be an HUGE relief for Danny to throw all of Jesse's recording crap out of his house for good. I never understood how Danny allowed Jesse to have all that garbage in his basement. It's bad enough that he had to turn his garage into an man child room for Joey. But why take more space away from his actual kids who almost always had to share rooms? God, it must've felt so satisfying chucking all his crap. XD I would totally love to do this in real life. ^_~

Of course, Joey has to enter the scene and ruin all the fun. But wait, Joey actually got fired from his job?! LMAO, FHR guy would be shouting from the highest rooftop if he ever reads this. XD Although it sounds like Jesse f***ed Joey out of an job. Even Jesse's personal nut hugger can't even catch a leaky break with him around! And he got them fired over Jesse's dumbass band's song! I ALWAYS skipped over any scene in the actual show when Jesse's stupid ass band was starting to play an song. I can't believe the Beach Boys lowered their standards to play with Jesse. Good for Mike for not allowing whiney ass Jesse to play his stupid song in the station. Although if this was Full House, the writers would probably have Mike give into Jesse because he would make an stupid pouty face like Michelle did. LOL @ Jesse preaching about how his boss is jealous and how he's a public figure. Reminds me of an certain somebody named Brown who thinks they are so important and self-righteous. ^_~

What's this, Joey with balls?! LOL, Joey in the real Full House would cry like a little b**** and let Jesse get his own way. And Jesse acting so full of himself too like the Brown stained underwear user I mentioned earlier. I actually sort of like Joey in this fanfic. Not only does he have balls, but he actually puts Jesse in his place! Of course, Jesse is an entitled little POS who can't get anything through his s*** for brains head. -_- LOL, I would love to be in that radio station when he actually plays the song! I love how high and mighty he is acting on the radio. No wonder his dumbass niece is always getting away with murder. Seriously, did Jesse ever stick up for Stephanie and DJ? I remember that there were times that he would get mad at them for stuff that Michelle gets away with. Like when Stephanie accidentally cut his ugly lice infested hair. If Michelle did the same thing, he would be cool with it and act like it was an cool style. -_-

Of course, Jesse is not very bright seeing how he's ripping his boss an new one on LIVE RADIO! I wonder who ever thought that would be an good idea in the first place. Thank God his boss has a back bone and fired these two losers. If this was the actual show, Mike and Jesse would probably hug it out and everything would be back to normal. -_- The only thing that would've made this scene better is to have angry callers calling the studio and ripping his dumbass song an new one. XD I'm actually glad that Becky and Danny tried to comfort Joey. As much of an loser he is on the show, I think they all agree they have one enemy. He really should've helped Becky and Danny smash Jesse's crap though. But I REALLY love potty mouth Becky! I would love to see her rip Jesse an new one on the actual show. I wonder how it felt to be married to an loser who didn't have an real job and forced his family to live in the attic of his brother-in-laws house. LOL, I would love to see Danny and Becky get rid of everything that Jesse owns. Including his ugly ass children who are as mentally challenged as Brown's friend. ^_~

Can't wait to review Part 2! ^_~

LMAO, if this were the real show, Mike would totally cave in and let Jesse play his stupid song on the radio after all. Since apparently "Jesse was pushed into it after his boss said no." Since Jesse has way too much of a narcissistic, fragile ego to take "No" for an answer. That's the kind of logic I was going for while writing this bashfic, only this time he and manchild Joey doesn't get his way for once. ^_~ Hee, I would've loved for people to call in and complain about what a douche Jesse is. Why didn't I think of that? XD;;; And yeah, Jesse never stuck up for neither DJ or Stephanie. He accuses DJ of drinking beer at a dance and refuses to hear her side of the story, gets pissed at Stephanie for cutting that atrocious mullet off, etc. But if Michelle ever did any of those things, Jesse wouldn't even give a damn and brush it off. With influences like the spoiled manchild Jesse, no wonder Michelle is such a brat. Look at the example she has. -_- I am so glad both Jesse and Joey lost their job. In the real show, Mike and Jesse would hug it out and everything would be perfectly okay. But not in these bashfics. In my bashfics, these losers are actually held accountable and actually face consequences for once in their life. I can write better episodes of the show than the actual writers could. ^_~

And yes I made Joey an actual decent human being for once, normal even, and I made Becky a potty mouth. XD;;; Major step up for what a goody two shoes she is normally. So I spiced her up and gave her more personality, and a backbone. I wouldn't mind Nicky and Alex going the way of Jesse's "careers" too. They're as mentally challenged as s***Stain's friend who is sooooo offended over ableist slurs just like s***Stain is. But for now, we can just settle on Jesse's recording s*** going bye bye. ^_~

Part 2 is even better. Jesse gets kicked out of his band because his band mates are so fed up with him. It's hysterical the way he's kicked out too. XD;;; It really showcases just what a narcissistic dick that he really is. You'll really like it. ^_~
