I've been pretty frustrated with the franchise for a while now. We have an excellent set of writers on the books: Gillen, Carey, Aaron, Remenderm, DnA and Wells before them have all done great things. But it feels like editorial is just throwing out horrible idea after horrible idea that these write...

I'm so glad I'm not alone in considering Buffy basically intolerable. The friend who got me into the show was obsessed with SMG and could not understand that I loved her friends but sighed through half the scenes with the title character. Her indignant reaction to everything anyone did ever was well...

That was far and away the worst episode of Who I've seen. I'm told Colin Baker's and Pertwee's eras weren't up to much, but surely they can't be half this bad? There've been stinkers the last few years for sure, but usually Tennant's performance can give rewatch value to crap like New Earth, Rise of...

How can they be serious about that? Is there some conspiracy within the BBC to kill the show? Series 3 was the best so far by some distance, and now RTD wants to throw that all away with that awful waste of oxygen? I know fans say this kind of thing a lot and no one, including me, takes them serious...

I've seen a few people assuming Serenity wouldn't be a big deal to people who weren't fans of the TV show, but that movie blew me away and I've never seen an episode of Firefly . The movie does stand on its own very well, and the brilliant cast make it one of the most only compelling SF movies of th...

I was the bystander in the Bystander Effect today

I saw a little kid, about six or seven, fall off his bike in front of my house today, and even though he was yelling for help, I just looked out the window and made no attempt to go to him. I was assuming he had friends nearby that would give him a hand, but when he finally got himself up and left, ...

Originally posted by Hound Actually now that you mention it, did House of M actually leave any real lasting effects?

Originally posted by DrSpengler I think one thing that makes Marvel a tad more accessible is that they don't have a "Crisis" every decade which completely rewrites continuity and means everything you thought you knew doesn't matter anymore.

It's **** like this that makes DC completely inaccessible. If you bought Infinite Crisis and managed to comprehend the utter fanwank within, well, your copy of the story is no longer the canon version of events.
