Ginx Daily; Backchat, Episode 5

This week's Backchat covers Star Wars: The Old Republic addiction, cyborg action hero teams in Syndicate and owls.

Watch Video

Never played WOW, I planned on playing the old republic but then I remembered I actually liked going outside so I just played Skyrim instead, couldn't bring myself to do both. My only problem with this episode is the "lightsaber to the knee", don't even chastise him, just ignore it and it'll go away.

Oh and I dig Aoife with the glasses ;)

If I needed a cyborg action hero team I'd go with Darth Vader, Bishop from Aliens and Gray Fox from Metal Gear.

What about towel? Jowl? Cowl? Foul? Scowl?

I feel like you're talking about talking about games, and not actually talking about the games...

my team would be Mega Man, the terminator and Duke Nukem. Also This show is getting better and better, covering SOPA would be nice though

Man, I sure love them Ohls games

Nasrin:

That is the professed purpose of the Backchat so I guess they are succeeding at their stated goal.

My Sci-Fi action team would include Jack Harkness, Montgomery Scott and Han Solo. They're capable and seem fun to have around.

So I actually just pulled this up in another window just to hear her accent...
that strikes me as a bit sad but it is about one of the best voices.

Definitely Rodney McKay and Samantha Carter from Stargate. Maybe Vala as well, or the Doctor (Tennants Version).

Where is that accent from?
I've never heard anyone pronouncing owl as oihlh.

Ireland, nice is'n't it?

Yeah, i'll probably just be watching the backchats from this channel. Having browsed through some of the history it's really the only thing i've enjoyed each time, and it seems to be picking up pretty good humour which is always a plus.

Loved that pronunciation session at the end too. It was both cute and funny :D

Have I watched these before? I don't think I have. Not sure why not. Cute girl with an adorable accent talking about games sounds right up my alley. Shower or not, I'd play TOR with her. Though, I'd play TOR anyway. So that's not quite fair.

Also, her pronunciation of Owl sounded like "Ow" to me.

So I see they had a clip from my fair lady at the end... :D

You mean Oihlhand :D

(Except that's a different part isn't it? :( My joke is ruined, I'm so so sorry )

Owwwl-land...?
Technically its a Northern Irish accent, but y'know...still Irish.
Oh, and Barda236 - like your team mate choices...I'd have Smith's Doctor, Caprica Six and obviously, Bucky O' Hare.

Is it wrong of me that I read the title in your accent before I watched the video?

My browsing history only consists of charitable organizations and certainly no Asian cheerleader porn.

Totally not awkward.

But they sound pretty different, I thought Ireland was like Wales and had accents all over the place, Valleys, West, Northern, Southern, English (sadly) you're bigger than us and further from London so it'd be sad if you didn't have at least as much variety as us :D

Besides you definitely chose the wrong Doctor, anything Smith can do, Tennant can do better :D

Yeah, they are very different, actually. But if you're not used to them they could probably all sound the same.
You're crazy, the eleventh doctor is the best since the fourth! :p

AoifeGinx:

There's just nothing special to him, except some excellent taste in travelling companions (maybe the best taste). But if you gave David Tennant Amy and Rory, maybe with the odd visit from Captain Jack, the universe would probably implode with the awesome.

Tennant had a serious side and a happy side and a manic side. He didn't just talk until you went numb, he emoted at you until you felt so happy to be along with him. Don't you fall in love every time he says 'Aoawwwwhhhhhhhh'? He'd enthuse you with the brilliance of everything around him and the brilliance of you, put on his glasses and do some thinking when you needed your problem solved, wear his dressing gown when you needed to be classy, bluff with his water gun when you're threatened and then when things got serious and you were really in trouble, watch out universe.

Aoife is an Irish goddess. There, I said it. And the way she pronounces "owl" is pretty cool, really.
I was going to say something a little more on topic as well, but then I remembered that Backchat is already a bit off topic. How meta is that?

As Teal'c would say, indeed. The tenth Doctor definitely had more umph behind his emotions.

Where have all the back chats gone?
