    First thing that always pops in my head when I hear the name Stephen Sondheim is Send in the Clowns sung by Judy Collins.

    RIP

    We are, but not everybody else is doing that out there. :)

    I think my brothers and I might have an old-style TV dinner once or twice back in the '70s, but my father had quite a few of them.

    Except what is said or inferred is that the US is the most prudish country in the world without any qualifications, which is obviously not remotely true.

    Double post.

    Agreed, but the US still gets dinged much more over it than those draconian theocracies in fiction and elsewhere. You would think those other countries didn't exist sometimes. :)

    Except they could have all been created without becoming legacies, but instead brand-new superheroes (unless you're saying their well-known codenames are much more important than their...

    How is it scapegoating when it did what it did? Fan squabbling over characters wasn't around pre-COIE, but surely was in force after it. This is just undeniable.

    Agreed and if DC would have stuck to that formula that they created the '60s, this thread would not exist. The problem is DC did deviate from that formula during the '80s and created all of the fans...

    It's possible and has happened in the past. The first great example of this was Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., who was originally a very popular light comedic actor and later became an even more popular...

    Yeah, I discovered that tidbit the season she joined the show. I was also confused at the time.

    I guess Jes Macallan is on okay terms with her former husband based on yesterday's episode.

    The sequel did have the luscious Barbara Bach in it, but the former had some hotties itself plus was the far superior film.

    It was very dumb that she had anything to do with the company in the first place.

    I like all types of war movies from The Big Parade up to the newest today. Ever since I saw To Hell in Back back in '73, I have been hooked. With that said, The Great Escape is my favorite.

    Of course it's silly, but the Flashes are just too powerful. Unless they are ambushed or speedsters themselves, Barry, Wally, Jay, etc. should be able to deal with any baddie in a blink of an eye. If...

    If the writers actually wrote any of the speedsters correctly in the comics or live action, the stories would be over in a minute. :)

    Well, it's impossible for any of us to be a hero with super powers, but it is possible to be Batman-like (though only up to a point, of course - closer to the Bat wannabes from The Dark Knight than...

    I guess the question why any popular character attracts its number of fans can be asked to all of them. Do they all share your extremely negative description of Batman? Since the answer is no, I...

    Heh. Every time I see these threads, The Impossible Dream starts playing in my brain. Don Quixote had a better chance fighting his imaginary windmills than the effort to diminish Batman's popularity....

    DC raceswaps because, except for the Trinity, the average person doesn't really care about who is in the costume. Just the way it is.
