So it's gonna be eddie.

Sovereign Court

I really can't decide do I hate Egwene, Elaine or Faile more.

Sovereign Court

Hah, falling apart before it began

Sovereign Court

It's just really annoying, Jordan envisioned a world of strong female characters, what he gave, however was a world of crazy hysterical beasts I could in no way relate to.

Except Nynaeve. I love Nynaeve.

I hope they do a better job than the Shannara Chronicles.

That is a low bar to set.

Why are you sad? If you don't like the character, just don't watch the show.
Because Punisher works amazingly as a reoccurring antagonist and really s!@~tily as a protagonist. By giving him his own show, they eliminate their ability to use him as the former.

I don't see why.

Sovereign Court

Why are you sad? If you don't like the character, just don't watch the show.

Is a casting requirement 'Must be willing to tug braid'?
Don't forget the crossing of arms beneath one's breasts. Every woman in the show must do this anytime they're remotely irritated. (The braid tugging is reserved for more severe irritation.)

That is male fanservice.

Sovereign Court

OH man I cannot wait to see it

Donnie Yen?

Exceedingly unlikely, but not a bad idea.

The WHEEL OF TIME is our world in the future. Not just that, but it's in the future of a time when people can travel across the planet in just hours (or instantly, via Aes Sedai gateways). Cultural and ethnic differences became utterly irrelevant during the Age of Legends. During the Breaking of the World that followed people were thrown together, scattered and mixed up all over the place. During the 3,000 years since the Breaking some re-homegenisation has taken place, but along cultural lines rather than skin colour or appearance.

Whilst going strictly by the books the entire main cast would be white and Caucasian until Tuon showed up, there's actually no real or dramatic reason why that needs to be the case. You could quite easily cast Nynaeve (who's always felt an outsider in the Two Rivers anyway) with an actress of colour with no bearing on the narrative at all. Or Lan, with more textual support as the Borderlands do seem to have attracted a lot of people in the WoT world of Asian descent.

The only people who do really need to be distinctive are the Aiel, who were actually the only race of people to retain their own appearance and culture even during the Age of Legends.

Except that all characters were described as white, a lot.

Even Aiel are just tanned because of the sun.

Honestly never cared about the inhumans movie.

Ghost Rider's origin is pretty cool...

And Batman's origin isn't a bat flying through the window... That's just how he chose his costume's theme.

Well, loved one killed by a criminal is the most overused origin in the history of comics... or maybe even fiction itself. Certainly stretches from batman to spider-man to daredevil back to Shakespeare's stuff himself.

Ghost Rider's origin is ok... but GR has had so many retcons and reimaginings... that the character has REALLY been damaged in the process. Between Satan, Mephisto, Zarathos, Johnny Blaze, Danny Ketch, amulets, angels... etc. etc... it's tough to even look at the character anymore.

Batman was one of the first when you look at the timeline.

Sovereign Court

Lightning bolt and cabinet of chemicals was one of the most ridiculously stupid origins I have ever seen, and I've seen Kung Fury.

Sovereign Court

Flash comic is full of speedsters.

Heh. Hand wave.

Yeah, I'm a bad, bad man.

The hand regeneration was worse considering the med-bay's track record thus far. Couldn't save the professor, who was shot using what the med-bay should consider contemporary technology. Couldn't save Hawkgirl from the bits of Savage's dagger floating around in her bloodstream. In fact, the med-bay has been next to useless for the entire show until Snart's hand. Then suddenly it's full of futuristic modern miracles because it had a prior DNA sample on file?

It's a good enough handwave.

Sovereign Court

I was hoping for a robotic hand

Sovereign Court

Let's see. Human flesh, fraction of a second. Pipe, several seconds. And he was pretty short on time at the moment.

Sovereign Court

And Snow is dead. hurray.

They really brought out the potentially good character I always knew Mick could be in these recent episodes. My only regret is that it seems to have come at the expense of ANY character interaction between he and Snart, which is too bad because the actors have great chemistry together (to be expected, I suppose. I never watched Prison Break but working with someone that long you have to learn how to play well off each other).

Agreed.

I REALLY wish they could focus on more then one or two characters at a time...

Ever since they started making Mick awesome... Snart has moved entirely to the background. He REALLY hasn't done anything interesting since he froze his hand off...

Which, I REALLY hated. Especially when the pipe the handcuffs were on... was RIGHT there.

Takes much longer to freeze a pipe.

Sovereign Court

Trailer looks nice. A spot of mindless fun and crappy humour. Gonna watch it in the movies for sure.

I'm curious - but Fallout 4 is already a big enough time sink for me.

You obviously recommend this game, though, so I've been looking at it.

Still playing that?

Sovereign Court

Of course it wasn't.

What's wrong with Cochrane?

Watch the original series, read some of the very good expanded universe novels with him as a central character, and you'd understand.

Plus the entire setup of Cochrane's camp simply doesn't make sense. If you're in post apocalypse scenario where camps are just struggling to get by, you're not going to be devoting resources to experimental space stunts.

Cochrane's just the start of the list of things I hate about the movie, and if I went into them, I'd be in full bore rant mode. In short the conduct of the entire Enterprise bridge crew made that movie literally painful to watch.

Honestly, never liked TOS in the least. Movies, yeah. The series I just couldn't stomach. Possibly because I grew up on TNG.

Conduct? Dude? Their future was gone. They had to bring it back. They were surprisingly moral and ethical about it. I'd have incinerated worlds to bring my timeline back.

Sovereign Court

Sorryyy, I mixed up Hunter and Lincoln. My bad.

Sovereign Court

What's wrong with Cochrane?

Sovereign Court

Lincoln is kinda written off the show dude.

I loved Hunter's haughtiness and his smirking in the lab, all of Joe's scenes with Wally were excellent, and Barry's pep-talk with Cisco was super-great.

Oh GOD YES. He was so deliciously evil and smirking about it. I loved it. The actor has range.

Snyder is good visually, storywise, he's terrible.

Shouldn't Superboy be a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor?

Have I?

Seriously?

Yeah? I see it as nothing else but a cash grab to bank in on 40+ years of nostalgia in most adults living today.

Ok, ShinHakkaider, you were right, I was wrong.

Oh come on, jungle book cannot hope to rake in a lot of cash. It probably won't even dent the box office.

Trust me, they call them warlocks in my countries translations. I cringe whenever I read it.

Sovereign Court

You do understand that such costuming first happened in Star Wars anyway?

He sounded british

The only thing that pleases me about CBS right now is their decision to toss away the poorly made Abramsverse. May it rest in peace.

It will be back. In fact it hasn't gone anywhere(pun not intended).

So you prefer abramsverse to trek?

Sovereign Court

You look for absolute consistency without looking at all the variables. Sometimes race lifts are unimportant. Sometimes they are not. Differing factors.

Sovereign Court

TNG was mine. But I don't mint it not being on the Enterprise whichever. Although Enterprise B adventures would be fun. "Let me guess, Tuesday".

Is that an issue both ways for you Fabius? Are you upset that Idris Elba will be playing Roland in the Dark Tower?

I am. I hate race lifts for the sake of tokenism as much as I hate whitewashing a character who is obviously not white.

Sovereign Court

I couldn't care less about financial success....ninja'd xD

Yes, I agree, Rinko Kikuchi would have been an awesome Major.

Aaaand, pretty much what Fabius said.

The names behind it don't really inspire confidence in the project.
