    I think the idea that salvation hinges on intellectual assent to a belief system is problematic. When the scriptures speak of believing in Christ I'd argue it means something much richer than...

    This is where things get complicated.

    My understanding is that in its original context, the terms translated as 'us' and 'our' might refer to a plurality of godhood--as in God is 'more' god than...
  3. I get that, but my takeaway was a bit different....

    I get that, but my takeaway was a bit different. I felt like the fleshing out of Barney and Robin's relationship worked in the finale's favor. To my mind, the relationship was a very meaningful step...

    The Kylo sympathy angle is bizarre, and once again, I think Johnson worked contrary to his own ends, because it's clear he was trying to establish Kylo as an irredeemable if sympathetic villain. The...

    Just curious, how do you believe the last seasons were evidence against the ending?

    I've never gone back and rewatched, but I felt like story-wise, it gelled just fine. Main problem was them...

    Been re-reading it myself, and man, there are so many great interactions. Nearly every issue and they're all funny.

    It's also really, really bizarre, given that TLJ happens shortly after TFA, which means it's not like Rey had a two year interim to process her feelings about Kylo and come to some realization that...

    I'm agreed 100%. Also worth noting that Rian Johnson was able to explore a lot of the themes he attempted in TLJ much more successfully in Knives Out.

    The idea of a kind of a Skywalker force...

    I mean, I think so...but when Rebirth kicked off, I truly believed DC was going to fold the most popular aspects of pre-Crisis continuity into the New 52.

    DC has been kind of notorious for...

    Well, a Wells is never happy! If it had gone down the other way, he'd have been like, "Damn, Barry, that's cold. The Flash I knew would never have passed over the possibility of getting Iris back!"

    I wish King had been able to stay on as the regular Batman writer until at least #100, in line with his original plans.

    The 100 issue plan seems to be the casualty of behind the scenes stuff,...

    I do wonder if there's something else going on, given Wells' connection to Thawne....or it could be drama for the sake of drama.

    Also, adventurer Wells seems like the kind of guy who'd be okay...

    Morlun would have been best served if he'd never showed up again after his first arc IMO. Ezekiel works better as a recurring character.

    I think of teaching as Peter's ideal job. We get the...

    The Wells ghosts were kind of hard on Barry there...who wouldn't contemplate trading a monster's life for Iris', even if only for a moment? That just seems like being, I don't know, human? It would...

    Yeah, I think the finale was a poignant send-off and not unexpected.

    I think if anything, the problem came from the show going on long enough that the ending was obvious and they tried too hard...

    I'm agreed with pretty much everything you've said here, godisawesome. The ST's contradictory impulses end up leaving both kinds of fans largely unsatisfied, since they never fully embraced or moved...

    So re-watching the sixth episode, the one with Cassandra, and I could swear that it originally included a vision of Clark flying as Superman (showing just his extended arms in blue suit). But it's...

    I see Batman differently, but just to be clear, I think your interpretation is credible. I mean, Frank Miller stopped just short of Bruce actually being possessed by a bat-entity in TDKR. And his...

    I LOVE this book. Vendetti's dialogue is fantastic and his Clark/Lois dynamic is among the best I've ever read.

    Re-watched the first four episodes yesterday. A few thoughts.

    --Jim Kelly, you are not wrong about the explosions. Also, Clark saves someone from a wrecked or exploded vehicle in every episode....

    So just thinking through how Batman comics have dealt with some of these issues in the past.

    In the Silver Age, Batman was essentially deputized by law enforcement. So he was more like, I don't...

    Batman's world isn't realistic. It's grounded in psychological realism, where characters make decisions with a consistent internal logic based on the world they find themselves in, which is different...

    The finale was poignant to say the least. I love that Filoni left a lot to the audience's imagination--like whether Vader thinks Ashoka is dead, or realizes she's alive and decides not to pursue her,...

    I should probably read them both at some point! There's a part of me that doesn't care to ever read SMvW. I might still be holding a grudge that they killed Ned Leeds off in a one-shot that I...

    Well, being famous and being fully vindicated in the public eye are different things altogether. The street level perspectives we get on Spider-Man tend to vary wildly. It's pretty balanced overall....
