  1. TELEVISION: Original cast members who met each other AFTER the first episode

    Inspired by caj's many TV-related threads...

    When we think of our favorite sitcoms and the cast that we all love, we think they've known each other forever -- even before the series began.

    I think Disney wanted to do that or they actually did it with one of the series. The comics would have to be refashioned as YA titles in order for them to succeed in the bookstore market, but it...

    No, the characters and the copyrighted stories won't become public domain until 95 years after creation as they were work-for-hire assignments.

    However, the trademarks on the titles likely have...

    Well, each streamer has its strategy, obviously, but HBO Max using the older strategy of rotating content is probably one they're doing just for now until the service gets established.

    Besides Superman and Action, which really started to suck with infantile drivel its last few years before the Byrne reboot, the 1980s was a FANTASTIC decade for DC -- both pre-and post-Crisis.

    What in the WORLD is going on regarding Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and his rather dramatic tweet earlier today:

    Good Lord, if you want your student to continue to remain interested in Kirby's Fourth World, don't start with Final Crisis.

    If your student doesn't mind Silver Age/Bronze Age style comics...

    So, it's been a couple of weeks since anyone posted on this thread. Is everything now back to normal where you live?

    In NYC, I don't think the shutdown has been fully lifted, but I do see more...

    Schumacher was a great visual director. I have my own criticisms of both Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, but they are both fantastic to look at.

    Entertainment-wise, I prefer Forever to Tim...

    I agree with you that Superman needs a strong editor -- hopefully someone who appreciates the character as-is without feeling he's a problem that needs to be fixed by making him...

    And, by the way, that "World's Finest" 3-parter where Superman and Batman first met in the Timmverse? It contains a scene where Superman and Batman duck for cover when crooks start firing machine...
  12. Poll: After Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The...

    After Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series was a comedown for me. Like most here, I rated DCAU Superman 3 out of 5.

    Superman is my favorite character in all of comics, so...

    On DALLAS, I did not like a bunch of characters.

    In the dream season (DVD Season 9), I didn't like Angelica Nero and her whole storyline. Also didn't care for Ewing come-latelys Jamie and Jack. ...

    Not to derail this thread, but the way I read Adventure 271 was that Lex was ALREADY an unstable borderline personality to begin with.

    He worships Superboy so thoroughly, complete with what's...

    The article is about Batgirl writer Cameron Stewart.

    What's going on with Warren Ellis?




    This is my 1400th post. Kind of a non-event, unfortunately.

    Anyway, in another thread, we are talking about whether the wordy comics of yesteryear are better or worse than today's sparsely written comics. It seems like us older fans like the older comics...

    I gotta stick up for the Luthor origin story.

    Now, Mort Weisinger's stories could be as goofy as all get-out, but in this case, he gets it right. In Adventure Comics 271 from 1960, the childhood...

    Anyway, on topic, I prefer the older comics. For Marvel Silver Age, it got readers into their heroes neurotic thought processes. For DC heroes, a lot of that clunky Mort Weisinger dialogue and...

    Today's movies ARE less wordy -- on purpose. The international audience is more important now, so the less dialogue, the easier it is to translate and less obstacles for the foreign audience to get...

    I know Ted McGinley has been named the poster child for a show jumping the shark, but I really did not like him on Happy Days.

    It's not that I hated him. It's just that he simply was not a good...

    I think AT&T did the right thing here, and I don't think it's confusing at all.

    Well, Eric Stephenson's letter was supposed to be just an internal thing to Image creators, and it was leaked. The letter was NOT a public statement by Image about DC, so it's no surprise that the...

    I've read the Buddy Saunders editorial above, but in spite of his long time industry experience, he's basically just speculating here -- and he's coming across like a betrayed lover.
