    As a veteran, I'd submit it's too often less an acknowledgement of any debt than it is a convenient means of pretending gratitude and respect. While I'm sure that some people are since in the...

    Well said. You put me in mind of All About Eve. Gary Merrill pretty much quotes you in attacking the pretentions of The Theatre.

    Wow. I don't think I've seen a thread descend into a bar fight this fast in some time.

    That would have been a more interesting plot. But honestly (IMO), the franchise had all its fuel exhausted in the second film. It should have been left off there (no matter how much l liked Garcia in...

    Challenging your opinion of violence's sources? Yes.

    Belittling? It's unfortunate you took it that way, which was not the intent. But sarcasm (lowest form of humor that it may be), is a frequent...

    I would LOVE to see somebody do a proper Lensman series.

    I said most, and honestly “violence” is pretty ambiguous. I was more so thinking about armed conflict/fist fights. Also, why did you leap to Poland here? In that example, the group in question would...

    Um. Sure. All those Poles were just asking for it in 1939. Just like all the rape victims over the millennia.

    I was referring to this. I cling to the original depictions mystical abilities in Dr. Strange's world as perceiving and manipulating multidimensional forces and phenomena by study and adapting one's...

    I find it hard to pick a "best" among the MASH replacements, because they were all so good. The show-runners really knew what they were doing.

    I couldn't see it as a kid, but rewatching MASH as an...

    If you go back the first dozen-odd issues of Action Comics, S&S' Superman was very much like what you describe. He literally drug Hitler and Mussolini in front of a world court, trapped a mine-owner...

    Today's news reinforces my belief that NO Marvel decision-maker has had any idea what Dr. Strange is about since Ditko left the feature.

    I haven't looked at the numbers, but do they continue to sell well? I think the durability of the story's ability to make the sales charts is what the OP was asking about.

    That's actually a rather good idea. We haven't seen anybody but The Senior Three of the Enterprise, although I understand that Boyce has been cast.

    My Take: Barry would love to be laid back, but there was just too much to get done, even before superspeed came along.

    DC lends itself to self-contained stories in a way Marvel does not because of what's baked into each company's historical DNA. DC's structure was always siloed, all the way back to its roots as two...

    This is among the reasons that I think superhero comics should be written to be kid-friendly. So we can dismiss any attempt to use them as any kind of real world solution analogy.

    I haven't read enough Johns to feel fully informed about his preferences. However, I will say that the era in which one grew up is not necessarily a good measure one's favorite era. I began reading...

    It looks like they'll be cribbing enough from Andromeda as it is. ;)

    Night Force was kind of a mystical Mission: Impossible. The center piece was Baron Winters, who sat in his creepy old mansion, Wintersgate, sending people out to thwart evil, often against their...

    In his late 80s series, The Atom got kind of messed up trying his phone-traveling gimmick because he got bounced off a couple of satellites.
