    Marvel's HELSTROM on Hulu

    Season 1 just premiered on October 16 with ten episodes.


    Has anyone had a chance to watch some or all of it yet? What's the verdict?

    I've never been a comedy movie buff. For me, comedy works best in the half-hour sitcom format. It's faster moving and breezier that way.

    Even when they do special hour long episodes of sitcoms,...

    I haven't read or watched the interview, but I don't get how creators had anything "stolen" from them.

    If you create a character as a work-for-hire, then you know going in that it's the company's...

    Yes, the Post-Crisis Earth should NOT be considered to be Earth-1 just with heroes from other Earths living there.

    In the Post-Crisis reality, they (e.g. the JSA, Shazam Family, etc.) were ALWAYS...

    And this is the exact problem with Dan DiDio. He had a lot of big ideas, but could never stick the landing. More on that in a second.

    Yes, I was there in the mid-1980s before and after Crisis,...

    On Dallas, I gave up partly through the Dream Season. Peter Dunne was the showrunner that season, and while he is responsible for making Knots Landing a good show beginning in Season 4, his Dallas...

    Another factor regarding unexplained absences that we have to consider is that the unexplained absence isn't an oversight or not included to save time -- it's often a DELIBERATE decision.

    Related to this thread are cases where a character's absence IS explained, but the explanation is stupid or invalidates the premise of the series.

    For example, on Good Times, when Esther Rolle...

    Actually, at the end of the episode, when they're all walking in the house after the graduation, Carol says something like "Too bad your father had to be out of town on business..."

    In real life,...

    I see from the imdb page you posted that your grandfather, Curt Perkins, was a background artist for Filmation, Hanna-Barbera, and others.


    I definitely appreciated the backgrounds of the...

    It's really hard to answer because, to me, there are no hard and fast rules.

    For example, I think Casablanca shouldn't be remade because it really is a product of its time in terms of both subject...

    It's not "reshoots." It's additional photography, but I understand your point.

    However, I do think the Snyder Cut existed as a close-to-completed movie that needed some post-production work on...

    It's been awhile since I've posted in this thread I started, but I recently thought of this crossover.

    To me, it's a natural. Who is really the lord of the dream realm?

    Doesn't bother me how much HBO Max is spending. It's not coming out of my pocket.

    I know Warner Bros Films, HBO Max, WarnerMedia, and AT&T are all pieces of the same company, but they each have...
  15. If MARK WAID takes over Superman, what's your WISH LIST for him?

    Now that Dan DiDio is gone, people are becoming optimistic that Mark Waid will come back to DC on a regular basis. He already has a Batman story in a December Dark Knights one-shot.

    People seem...

    Okay, FINALLY we're getting some unequivocal support for Ray Fisher from both Jason Momoa and the actress who played Iris in the cutscenes.

    Jason really goes on the attack in favor of Ray Fisher,...

    I'm glad that Wonder Woman vs. Superman fight was posted above because it highlights a pet peeve of mine.

    On several occasions in the comics, people have disabled Superman or Supergirl by making a...

    I think Jimmie Walker as JJ Evans became the breakout character on Good Times even though the show spun off with Esther Rolle's character.

    Also, on Alice, Flo quickly became a fan favorite with...

    Whether or not Superman HAS to be married isn't really the point. The fact is that he IS married and has been since 1996. I don't agree that Superman is a "static character" or works best that way....
  20. Poll: I'd say it looks good that Mark Waid will be...

    I'd say it looks good that Mark Waid will be doing more DC work, but we don't know that for sure at this point. Right now, we know he's doing a story in a Dark Nights: Death Metal one-shot in...

    As I stated above, I think there is a definite point to Snyder's dark tone above and beyond that he thinks it's cool.

    What if he deliberately gave us a dark world to show us the effect of...

    I remember Bleeding Cool/Rich Johnston writing that DC paid a "kill fee" to dump the 5G stuff.

    I doubt we'll ever get any clarity on how this comic or that Batman Generations one fits into DC...

    Most of what you cite as the "great" parts are the parts I didn't like about Whedon's version. I hope the Russian family doesn't exist at all in the Snyder Cut. Their inclusion felt jarring and...

    What can I say? I LIKE Snyder's more serious take. I also think there was a deliberate point to the dark tone. It was all leading up to a confrontation with Darkseid, after all.

    I don't expect...
