    I've never found an explanation for why Marina Sirtis could speak perfectly well in every other role she had, but when it came to playing Deana Troi she had to talk like she had marbles in her mouth....

    Years ago, my mother gave me the card she got for all my shots when I was a child--I must have it somewhere. Back when I first donated blood, I got a donor card that has my blood type on it. When I...

    I'm not up on all the latest comics. My knowledge is like Sam Beckett's swiss cheese memory. But does anything really stick with the characters? Some fans seem to think they know exactly what's true...

    Never heard of IT'S SUPERMAN. I'll have to put that on my reading list.

    For me my canon is the classic Earth-One Superman (1955 - 1985) in the comics and there's not a lot whole from the cartoons,...

    Maybe I'm giving more credit for intelligence but in modern movies and T.V. shows I usually assume that the person calling the ape a monkey actually knows this is wrong and the reason they're doing...

    Now, I feel embarrassed because when I hear the name Betty Buckley, I think of her recent roles in things like SPLIT. I didn't know she had those pipes and was the "Voice of Broadway." How did I not...

    By now there have been so many different approaches to these characters that there's no right answer. Whatever you think it should be that's fair.

    I grew up on a Batman that could be defeated by a...

    My older brother graduated in 1967. What a year--all the great albums that came out, the Summer of Love. But I doubt that the grad committee at his school allowed any of that music to be played at...

    Yeah, I don't understand why the smart scientist Superman has been written out of the comics. I guess they think that makes him too alien and they want us to think of him as farmer Kent. This seems...

    I enjoyed THE GOOD PLACE in the first season, but I felt like the situation was unsustainable. I kept wondering where it could possibly go without becoming redundant. And then in the final episode of...

    The idea that Barry's mom died and his father went to prison for it will never stick with me. In my mind, that's just an error in the timeline which will ultimately be repaired and really Barry grew...

    I found that the effects of the AstraZeneca vaccine hit me about ten hours after getting the shot. Then it was like if I had a flu--with fever, chills, aches and pains. That lasted about 36 hours. I...

    Since I'm a big fan of McCartney, I checked and WINGS AT THE SPEED OF SOUND was the album they released that year and it was at the top of the charts for many weeks. Not my favourite Wings L.P.--that...

    B-b-b-but those three guys were all members of the Justice Society prior to Crisis and some of the best J.S.A. stories feature them--Wonder Woman especially.

    In Pre-Crisis continuity, according to Roy Thomas, the Freedom Fighters (including Uncle Sam and Plastic Man) lived on Earth-Two, then left for Earth-X.

    Personally, I never liked that retcon. I...

    I approach all movies as Elseworlds. I might not have had that idea when I was a kid, but when I saw the 1978 SUPERMAN, I had to quickly abandon my expectation that it would be like the comic book....

    In recent decades, people have taken their comic books far too seriously.

    I always liked to see those stories where Batman gets beaten up so badly that it seems like he's never going to make it....

    I'd say in some respects it works better to read the one title, because it flows better when it's the same creative team. It's kind of uneven going from one title to the other to the other to the...

    PUNCH DRUNK LOVE and THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES are exceptional movies and Mr. Sandler's acting is on point in both. I aim to watch UNCUT GEMS one of these days--I started to watch but it was a tough...
