    You need to develop your thesis more. How do you think it hurt?

    I quite like "Must There Be...?" I bought it fresh in the drugstore. I kind of liked the Private Life of Clark Kent story more--the...

    I don't think Carol's redesign for Light Lass was noted at the time.

    The story that brought this home for me was THE SNEETCHES by Dr. Seuss, which I must've read when I was six. And later, after STAR TREK, there was the BEWITCHED episode "Sisters At Heart" where...

    My understanding is a lot of time was chopped from each episode to make it fit the run time for the C.W.--and they didn't show those extra scenes on Universe. So there were probably a lot of extra...

    Yes he is, which is why--before the finale--I thought Shade was going to be a "good" guy in the second season (given he likes the Star-people in the Robinson comics), yet the finale gives the sense...

    Even though it was good Rick didn't kill him, I think Grundy should have met with some accident that destroyed this form, so he could come back again from Slaughter Swamp in a different form. This...

    Watched the 1978 version of DEATH ON THE NILE, featuring an all-star cast. A good portion of the movie was filmed on location in Egypt, at some of the most popular tourist sites. Given it would be...

    The rules that Mort Weisinger came up with make sense for me. By my calculation he needed about 150 stories per year for the Superman family of characters. The red off/yellow on plot device was easy...

    Born with a brain, I don't know that I have a brain or how it works. I only know this because of science. But if I had been born a few thousand years ago, I wouldn't have learned any of that. People...

    When you go to a corner store, the pop should always be in glass bottles and should always be in a tank of cold water so you have to reach in and fish out the one you want, then pop off the cap on...

    Some designs during Cockrum's aborted run were not his. I know that Saturn Girl's was a design sent in by a fan. I really hated that one. Now, after watching lots of ABBA and other '70s stars, I can...

    Not a D.C. creation, but the story arc of the Claw is an early example of a massive crossover event.

    One of the nicest things my big brother did for me was in the early 1970s I had told him that I really liked the Superman comics from around 1964--a few stories from this period had been...

    Perhaps not having the season finale actually improves the chances of DOOM PATROL returning. It pushes the need to come back for a conclusion. And Max needs the content. But I doubt that "DC...

    I feel like MULAN has gotten a lot more attention than it would have under normal circumstances. I've never seen the original (as with most cartoons from that era) and I certainly have no interest in...

    They really went for it in what would have been the penultimate episode. A lot of daring scenes. If they didn't get to film any scenes for the planned tenth episode, I imagine it will be quite the...

    As a contained world, the Snyderverse works. A trilogy or quadrology is fine. But it was never well-suited to being the shared Cinematic Universe for all the super-heroes. They cut out too much from...

    "Like" doesn't seem exactly the right word for a movie that fed into all my fears. I'd have to say, though, that the first half of the movie was much more tense than the last half. It's the...
