    OK, I'll play around with it on my end - thanks.

    Hey now, let's try and stay on topic. This conversation is about guys named Steve having trouble on planes.

    [nods] Whether it does or not, this ain't the place for that conversation. Thanks.

    Oh, and as much as I didn't care for the way Cupid's Dagger blithely dismissed multiple instances of date rape, I will give them props for not having Ed go through a Crying Game style post-gay-hookup panic.

    I thought with the old software, entering a comment with Quick Reply would change the page to the most-recent page? [shrug] I'm not sure either way is significantly better, just different. Well that's the thing, IIRC it didn't clear the form or give me a SAVING label or anything to trust in?
  6. Well in this case, it seems like the critics and the public pretty-much agree.

    I wasn't too enamored with Dr. Finn before, but her Turn To The Creepy this episode was genuinely chilling.
  8. ...I honestly can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not? You just described the top five things that ruin a movie for me. Those aren't exactly minor technical points; they're the minimum qualifications for Not Shitty. As for reviews, I only listen to the handful of reviewers whose opinions I trust. It's harder now that Roger Ebert has left us - whether or not *he* liked a movie, I could almost always tell if *I* was going to like it from his reviews.

    Has anyone else experienced this: when you post a comment quoting a post that's not on the most-recent page of the thread, the old software would take you to the most-recent page so you could see your new post. The new software doesn't do that, it seems to leave you on the page you were quoting from and doesn't give you a notification that your post went through. As a result, I wound up creating 3 or 4 duplicate posts before I realized what was going on. Could just be user error, of course, but seemed odd.

    OK, I think they have officially Hit Their Stride. I wouldn't call Firestorm a perfect episode, but it was the first one that I felt really stood on its own with no apologies needed. And yeah, Alara's definitely my favorite character too.

    Triple post? Damn.
  12. New Series--The Orville

    Double post, sorry.

    Well the latter is pretty-much a story-telling necessity; having to wait to have everything translated really destroys the narrative flow. So necessary evil IMO. And the former they sorta-quasi justified by revealing that most intelligent life in the galaxy was all "seeded" from common genetic stock by the Progenitors or whatever they called them.
  14. The question is whether DC is self-aware enough to have a character make that joke in-character or not, and who gets to make it. My money’s on Flash.

    I normally don't care much for flashback episodes. And if I could live the rest of my life without being forced to sit through more High School Melodrama, I'd die a happy man. And yet somehow, I really enjoyed this episode. I felt like it really did a good job of fleshing out Kara & Alex's relationship, and also put the whole "I'm driven to help people yet I chose to hide my powers for years" thing into better context. Having never watched Smallville, I had to look up the Chloe reference. And I was puzzled by the whole "Mom" thing, since I didn't think the actress looked anything like Kar's mom - I didn't realize they'd recast the part. But the Noell Neill bit was a nice shout out.
