      Now that E3 2017 has concluded, the D1Pcast crew will be recording its impressions of the show on Friday June 23 at around 6:30pm Eastern time.  Like we did for the preview show, we'll run through each conference and give our thoughts on the good, bad, and the wonderfully inexplicable (Devolver Digital - I'm looking at you!).   We're very much interested in hearing your thoughts and impressions about this past E3, so feel free to share them in this thread.  Or -- even better! -- if you'd like to join us for this episode, we'd love to have you on the show!  The more, the merrier as we put a capstone on our E3 2017 coverage!

  1. I'm not sure. Here's a quick look. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/01/29/us/refugee-vetting-process.html Another article from an actual refugee. http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/01/i-went-through-americas-extreme-vetting-214703
  2. Yeah, it can take anywhere from 15 to 24 months to get through the vetting process, and involves every agency that you can think of.
  3. If you even just mildly enjoy season one then stick with it. Seasons two and three are significantly better. I love The Leftovers but rarely recommend it to anyone because it certainly isn't for everyone. It is beautiful though, in an emotionally tortured sort of way.
  4. Both of which are under the ABC umbrella. That's why his comment is mostly hyperventilating nonsense. There are plenty of bankable properties out there that could be used to headline a paid service, which is exactly why I want this one to fail, or at least not be successful enough to get the juices flowing in other network execs.
  5. You may have quoted the wrong person here because none of what you posted addresses my concerns.
  6. The all anal final chapter?
  7. If CBS is successful with this (paid online) then it will encourage the other major networks to give it a go. It is already bullshit that you have to have cable in order to access streaming services from ota channels. It'll be even more bullshit if we have to start paying 24$/month + whatever for cable to get all the content from a network. Especially when the 24$/month still serves commercials. Go ahead and label me however you like.
  8. I can't wait to pirate this. I'm not even that interested in the series, but the fact that an ota broadcaster is forcing people to pay to stream content and still showing commercials can't be rewarded. I hope this ends up being the most pirated program of all time.
  9. It's not significantly different from all-star caliber athletes being stuck in relatively low paying rookie contracts. They are usually signed to 4 or 5 year deals when they are drafted.
  10. My pessimism sense is tingling, so I'm guessing 4/5 points. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm probably not. Voter turn out is expected to be extremely high, and early ballots double the run off totals. I'm not sure what that means for the actual votes though. *please be wrong* That will be my district when we move back to Atlanta in September.
  11. The blurb above the video thought that the watermark belonged to Scott Buck, the showrunner.
  12. Moving is the worst. We moved from Atlanta to New York last summer, and are moving from New York to Atlanta this summer. Good luck to you, and your sister is a saint.
  13. My wife just got a job at the CDC, so back to Georgia we go. I'm going to miss New York.
  14. 2nd most incredibly stupid person?
