Day 8: Favorite Appearance of RPGs in the Media
I have seen a few and I always find them amusing. Supernatural usually does a nice job. But my favorite still has to be from the X-files.
The first from "Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space'" Season 3, Episode 20
Jose Chung: Aren't you nervous telling me all this? Receiving all those death threats?
Blaine: Well, hey, I didn't spend all those years playing Dungeons and Dragons and not learn a little something about courage.
The next one comes from another one of my favorite episodes, "Unusual Suspects" Season 5, Episode 1.
Langly: Elron the Druid bets 50! Cash only, Elron... no cheques for the bank of Middle Earth! Come on Natural 20. Daddy needs a new Sword of Wounding. [Byers and Frohike enter] What's the big idea of bringing the Nark in here?
Frohike: Me and the Nark have a proposition for you.
Langly: What proposition?
Frohike: The coolest hack in the world.
Elron the Druid: Lord Manhammer?!
Langly: Say it. Say it!
Frohike: [reluctantly] Your Kung-Fu is the best...
When the Lone Gunmen "died" in the series I rose a toast in my next D&D game to Lord Manhammer.
