    I hadn't heard that but I did read an interview where Griffith admitted that he was starting to show up late for work and not know his lines. He outright said it was very unprofessional. But he felt the show had degenerated into being just another comedy show. Don Knotts was gone. Ron Howard was old enough that Opie plots tended to revolve around Opie and his friends or Opie on a date rather than the father- son relationship. He felt the qualities that had made it something special were mostly gone.

    Peter Cushing is in many of the Hammer Dracula films but after the first two, when he returns he appears as Van Helsing’s ancestor instead of Van Helsing.

    he was bitten by a vampire in Brides of Dracula, and he burns himself to stop the infection.

    the theory is that he retained Vampire abilities and aged very slowly, allowing him to exist in 1972 but have to pose as his ancestor.

    OHMSS is strangely both the film most supportive and probably least supportive of the theory at the same time, in a way. You have the "This never happened to the other fella" and Bond and Blofeld fail to recognize each other right away (although this might be because they were trying to stick fairly close to the novel, which is their first meeting in that context) despite having met in the last film. However, other films (Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only, Licence to Kill) with different Bonds bring up his marriage and widowing; or at least suggest it (Diamonds Are Forever, The World Is Not Enough). Also the opening credits hourglass heavily uses footage from the first five films (Although mainly the girls and villains, as Connery Bond is not shown) and there's a scene where Bond empties his desk with various mementos and gadgets from the earlier films (and their music plays too).
    I thought "Diamonds are Forever" later explained that as Blofeld regularly getting plastic surgery. I may be wrong about that. Been a long time.

    In the first Timothy Dalton movie, I thought the organization of Spectre was introduced to Bond as if it was new to him but maybe I'm misinterpreting how it was presented.

    I truly wish "Casino Royale" had been set in the late 50s or early 60s and been an origin rather than a restart. I'm not saying it would have succeeded and I know that's a minority opinion but just my own preference. I remember back in the 1990s when Deep Space 9 did that James Bond parody and a lot of people were saying it felt more like a James Bond movie than the James Bond movies have for a long time. Same with that recent Flash parody of Bond.

    I like it. One of the criticisms that causes some fans to excise "Brides" from continuity is that vampires turn into bats in it, something that they cannot do in the other Dracula movies.

    No, wait. New fan theory. The vampire in that movie pulled a Buffy-like move and learned something even Dracula didn't know how to do.

    Blofeld was the one getting plastic surgery (in part to also produce body doubles as well) in Diamonds Are Forever. Although OHMSS did entertain the idea at one point in it's production.


    SPECTRE is not mentioned in the Dalton movies. (You might be thinking of SMERSH which is sort-of mentioned) This was in part due to a long-running legal dispute dealing with the Thunderball novel and it's film adaptations, which is why there's NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN.

    But I can see Batman and Robin as a gay couple, especially in the 66 TV Series. Or Batman as a lover of young boys, being obsessed with training and making Robins out of them. I know there is another reason for that, but you could easily think that.
    Jesse Ventura really wouldn't have a problem or care about that he is all for gay rights.

    I know, I was kidding. His wrestling persona would have done that maybe. Jesse is a great guy, I like listen to him in interviews. Its a shame that the shithead Navy Seal whatever his name was again, ruined parts of his life only to get more fame.

    Pick five Keanu movies you like. Cool, those represent the five iterations of the Matrix since the Architect tells Neo he's in the sixth.

    Falls apart under scrutiny but fun to think about.

    This must have been before the Matrix figured out how to simulate an actual realistic world.

    There was a theory - and it may have been proven by now - that all the main characters on Friends were named after a character on the daytime soap opera All My Children.

    Having watched the soap for a period of time, I can match most of the characters:

    Ross Gellar - Ross Chandler
    Chandler Bing - Adam, Stuart, Ross, and Skye Chandler
    Joey Tribiani - Joe and Joey Martin
    Phoebe Buffet - Phoebe Wallingford
    Rachel Green - Janet Green

    The only one I can't match is Monica Gellar. So the theory may be somewhat untrue. Who knows?

    Problem is Ross Chandler is a convicted rapist. If they were named after AMC characters they could have literally picked dozens of other characters besides that one.

    Monica could be Mona (Erica Kane's mother) I suppose. Apparently Mona is sometimes used as a nickname for Monica, so...there you go.

    Monica could've very well been named after Mona.

    Now that I think about it, the surrogate mother for Monica and Chandler was named Erica (for Erica Kane) and Monica once dated a guy named Pete for several episodes. Pete was Palmer Cortlandt's real name.

    I'm not big into shipping, but this I wanted to see happen. Ah well.

    Anyway, I love the idea that the Scooby-Doo Gang were a bunch of kids (primarily Fred and Shaggy, of course) trying to escape the draft. And I don't lend much credence to the theory that Tom Hardy's Mad Max is the Feral Kid from the Road Warrior, but I like it anyway.

    Was there ever a theory that Scooby never actually talked, its just Shaggy was so high out of his mind that he imagined he did? And if anyone else ever heard Scooby talking it was just contact highs from whatever spectacular stuff Shaggy was smoking?

    I've heard this theory a lot. Other people respond to Scooby as if they understand, so it's not just Shaggy.

    Venture Brothers even did an ep with an ersatz Shaggy as David Berkowitz (the gang was called the Groovy Gang).

    They did address the talking animals thing in Mystery Incorporated. On this Scooby-Earth, there are talking animals that are hosts of extra-dimensional beings.
