The Rat Patrol by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Jan 27, 2011 at 10:36:07 AM EST
That was in reruns on ch 20 (local UHF independent) when I was a kid. Don't remember a damn thing about it.

>Tried to root my AppleTV yesterday. For a while I thought I'd made a stylish black iPaperweight, but I was eventually able to restore it to factory settings.

The British Eighth Army needed some Americans by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #2 Thu Jan 27, 2011 at 10:45:03 AM EST
to drive behind German lines and shoot shit up with their jeeps mounting .50s. For some odd reason, the first episode also has some Sherman tanks, with the white stars, I didn't know American tankers deployed in Egypt.

The German spg's looked an awful lot like repainted American Priests.

So, you got bad history, bad vehicles, jeeps off roading and jumping over dunes and explosions and shooting, sort of a Dukes of Hazzard in the Desert.

Some day when I get bored I'll move onto episode 2.

I visited Bully Hill by riceowlguy (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu Jan 27, 2011 at 10:59:55 AM EST
I went there once with my parents back in the 80's, I think.  It was romantic in my memory, until I was old enough to go booze shopping, found some at a Spec's here in Houston, and realized it was absolute swill (to my palate, anyway).


Yeah, there are great New York Wines by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Jan 27, 2011 at 11:02:20 AM EST
but not from Bully Hill.

I remember from my childhood as being particularly great.  Who know how it would stack up today.

That's an ... odd request. Is Chris Hansen the team's coach?

I'll have to check it out. Looks like it's sold out everywhere at the moment though.

The Shoppe Nerd says Days of Ruin is better. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #14 Sat Jan 29, 2011 at 12:19:07 PM EST
Mechwarrior was my Game of Choice in those days. Didn't play many WWII sims in Ye Olden Dayes.
