    One from a Quinn-Martin production (yes, I'm showing my age :D)?

    The greatest DC epilogue, bar none, IMO:

    I agree with that, but when it's every time, it's strains credulity.



    But their successors would get saddled with the same cliches instead. :)

    Okay, but you have to admit it isn't that imaginative going down the deux ex machina route, either.

    Which brings me to this: writers recycle some things because there aren't millions of new...

    I like cigars, but I haven't smoked one in over 15 years and only a few times before that. I never wanted to get into the habit of smoking anything that would affect my health. If I did smoke...

    Eh, we probably should just call it a day. It seems we're just spinning our wheels at this point. :)
  12. If they were given a big enough movie contract,...

    If they were given a big enough movie contract, of course they would take it over TV. Again, more money for less effort.
  13. Doing both is okay and has been the case forever....

    Doing both is okay and has been the case forever. But if they only had one choice between the two, they would take a lead role in a film over anything else due to the higher salary for less effort.

    Huh? I said exactly the opposite of what you just posted. :confused:

    The three established actors you named are neither fading movie or TV stars, though, while the other one is, as you stated, an up-and-comer. Therefore, I stand by my statement.

    Where do top movie stars go when they start to lose their clout at the box office? TV.

    Where do top TV stars go when they start to lose their clout with their audiences? Community theater? :D

    If GoT's final season consisted of 2-3 hours, then you would be right. But it averaged 88 million for each of their six episodes* (based on that same article you just posted), which translates to...

    And why is that? Because there is a far bigger return with a 2-3 hour movie than 2-3 hours of anything on TV or streamed. That is my argument in a nutshell.

    Again, this is not about quality....

    Your top movie stars (Dwayne Johnson is not the only one, BTW - #13 for 2020, Will Smith, made 35 million) destroy the top stars of television or streaming on an hourly basis.

    Okay, I have to jump in one more time: Dwayne Johnson can get $500,000 for 2-4 minutes of one of his films. :D

    Golden Age sidekick Doiby Dickles was modeled after character actor Edward Brophy.
