Anyone who's talked to me for more than five minutes knows that while LOST is my favorite show (even with that sixth season looming over it's head), Fullmetal Alchemist is my favorite STORY of all time. That goes for all books, comics, TV shows, movies, etc.
I know almost every word in Japanese to every opening song from both the 2003 version and Brotherhood. I own 80% of all the manga volumes, and despite them being the ONLY manga I've ever bought, I will not rest until I own the entire collection.
If I ever get a tattoo, I decided years ago the only one I would ever feel right about getting is Scar's right arm.
The notion of "Equivalent Exchange" changed my life in so many ways.
Hell, I even named my golden retriever "Alphonse Theophrastus Philipus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim". I also want to get him a little yippy dog for a brother and name him Edowado.
So naturally, as soon as I heard the name "Paracelsus" during this most recent season of Warehouse 13, I got super excited. Until I couldn't help but notice a "couple" similiarities between their version of him and Arakawa's.
Yes, I know he's a real person and alchemist who DID actually research the Philiosopher's Stone, but once they started talking about him and unwilling relatives becoming immortal at the cost of an entire village, all I could think about was the Homonculus in the Flask and Xerxes.
On the plus side, though, it's nice to see Brain D. (Josh Baylock) from Freddie Wong's "Video Game High School" get a recurring role on the show. Between starring in VGHS, the sequel, Warehouse 13, Jack Marston from Red Dead Redemption, and getting engaged in real life to his love interest from VGHS, Johanna Braddy, I'd say things are looking quite well for the fellow.
