This show actually has more than three dragons. It's just that there are only three of the most famous kind of dragon, left.

I thought about that, but the main character doesn't fit. There's a few others, but the main character's name being in the title doesn't fit. I've got nothing.

Pre-post edit: Darn it, Kerry. I just finished writing all of this, only to find that you posted the correct answer five minutes before I was ready. I'll post it anyway, just so that I haven't wasted my time (or at least make myself feel that way).

Alright. It's time to reveal what the series is. So, how widely available is this where you guys live?:


For some reason, the Official Yu-Gi-Oh! YouTube channel doesn't individually list the 5D's openings, so I'll post the first episode. Yes, you can watch full episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! on the channel. They have multiple episodes, if not seasons of the first four dubbed card game series on the YouTube channel. This helps promote the fact that they have the rest of the dubbed episodes, along with the first two seasons of subtitled 5D's FOR FREE (WITH ADS,) on their website: https://www.yugioh.com/ It should be noted that scattered season 2 episodes were only released in Japanese, because they were controversial, like the one where a character offers their soul to the Devil, to become better at playing children's card games (on motorcycles). If you have Hulu without ads, you can already watch all of this for free and without ads, in addition to the 1st and 3rd movies, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V dubbed (which I've heard is bad). I know that the 2nd movie, Bonds Beyond Time, was on Netflix, the last time that I checked. The final seasons of GX and 5D's are only available on CrunchyRoll, along with the subtitled versions of Arc-V and VRAINS. Canadians can watch VRAINS dubbed on Teletoon. Americans will probably eventually have it on Nicktoons, which also had Zexal and Arc-V. Even if you're not interested in trading card games, I'd recommend looking into 5D's and VRAINS, as they're darker, more serious series. In fact, there have even been times when I've felt annoyed that they had to spend time playing card games in VRAINS, because I enjoy it for the story.


I feel a little bad for the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh!, because he's someone who's interested in role-playing games and board games, and his show that was inspired by (and obviously, also inspired) tabletop games isn't known very well on a site about games. Maybe if Konami had let him stick to the original idea, where they played lots of different kinds of games (including Dungeons & Dragons in the finale), the series would have been more well-known on BoardGameGeek. I like the idea of Season 0, a lot, both because of the variety of games, and because of how dark it was willing to get. Unfortunately, it was only ever released on Japanese VHS, because Konami didn't acquire the rights from Toei, and the series has been in limbo, ever since. People sometimes post episodes that they've subtitled on YouTube, but they'll occasionally be removed, as neither Konami, nor Toei officially approve of it. I hope that they work something out and just put it on Crunchyroll or the Yu-Gi-Oh! website, because I'd happily pay for it.

I don't want this post to be any longer than it is already, so if you want me too explain anything that I said, or have other questions, you can ask me, later. Right now, we can move on with the game.

I've looked through the thread for anyone who's posted or thumbed something in it. I then sorted people, based on the number of turns that they've taken and how long it's been since they've had a turn. Those who haven't taken turns have been sorted based on the order that it seems people "arrived" in the thread, by thumbing, or posting.
Name: Turns:
MABBY 0
chuckdee68 0
Ldpaulson 0
Red Wine Pie 0
Bjcott 0
ookami86 0
Downeymb 1
USP45 1
Birmy 1
Thrift Thopter 1
Quozl 2
Mallet 2
Bobcat 2
Dysjunct 2

Based on my findings, I'll let MABBY be the one to take the next turn.

Birmy, your move.

This one might be easier if you're, ahem, of a certain vintage, like myself:

It's a death-defying life he leads. He takes his chances. He dies for a living in the movies and TV, but the hardest thing he ever does is watch his leading ladies kiss some other guy while he's bandaging his knee. He might fall from a tall building, he might roll a brand new car, 'cause he's the unknown stuntman who made Redford such a star.

It sounds like the beginning of the old Battlestar Galactica. If it's not part of the Battlestar Galactica franchise, I'll need to do some more thinking.

Babylon 5 is right. I'm currently watching it. Or re-watching it; I know I didn't catch everything the first time around but so far up to season 4 the only thing I didn't see was The Gathering. Probably season 5 and all the feature lengths were what I missed.

Series spawned an aquatic-sounding spinoff. The actor in the eponymous lead role later played Don Quixote on stage.

I only have one more obtuse clue. Then I'll be left with obvious hints.

Well it's been 15+ hours. I didn't think it would come across as this difficult. Certainly not at Yu-Gi-Oh! levels.

The actor playing the officer whose desire it was to be a famous author recently (relatively) portrayed a space-faring Pastor in a regrettably short-lived science fiction series.

In my defense, I really like Jose Ferrer so knew that he played Don Quixote on stage.

Excellent! I was hoping that the cross-references would bear fruit.

Ok, this might be a gimme... but it might not whistle

TV show about a renegade with supernatural elements that was canceled before its time, but is still going in other media (novels, comics), and has a couple of RPGs.


(and it's not by Joss Whedon)
