  1. I think they featured all the X-Cast except Jubile i'm not sure but yeah it looks awesome... I'll haveta get them on Friday though. What's shocking to me is the lack of bonus features menus other then the damn previews I was thinking that myself but then I thought to myself, "Be thankful Disney is giving us the series at all."
  2. I haven't seen any of them mentioned, but have any of you seen some of the great Anime Abridged series on the internet such of Yugioh The Abridged Series, Sailor Moon Abridged, or Dragon Ball Z Abridged.
  3. Just looked at the menus. I don't now what makes me happier: Jean being featured in multiple menu pictures or that Wolverine and and Gambit are in there once. Either way, so buying this next Tuesday.
  4. I just started rewatching The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, namely because I just read the novel and I might be cosplaying Itsuki in the near future and I want to get down the Hare Hare Yukai dance. After that, I'm probably going to start looking for a new series to watch. Just debating on what I want to sink my money into.
  5. It would be cheating to say Final Fantasy or any Zelda because both are givens in the awesome soundtrack category. For that matter, there are few RPGs that I would not put in the awesome soundtrack column.(Magus's Theme from Chrono Trigger was my ringtone for like a year) So, outside of RPGs, I would definitely say that Kirby Superstar had some great tunes in it. I am in love with the Gourmet Race tunes in particular.
  6. This is a problem with a lot of comedians. They got lazy. With Bush, there was a constant punching bag there. They had someone to be the butt of all their jokes. Now, we have someone that, to be fair, can be hard to make fun of plus most of the major comedians who get topical are definitely left leaning so they're afraid to. Colbert on the other hand has this persona going on that he is able to transcend it all. Colbert is forcing himself to work at staying relevant. Everyone else is just hoping the rest of us don't notice how incomptent they've become..
  7. I had pub food for dinner last night, I was watching Boom Town at the time I was posting, and I'm in a Brit Lit class this quarter. It happens.
  8. This is like a week later so I'll say thanks. That said, Jesus Christ. Is July 14th like the most erotic day of the year because I know like 5 other people who's birthdays are on April 14th then I glance over here and notice, oh, I can add four more to that. Wow, at least I'm not alone in being cursed with sharing my birthday with such events as the shooting of Lincoln, the titanic hitting the iceberg, pre-tax day, and the Broadway debut of Bye Bye Birdie.
  9. Well, if we get Wilfred, then I would assume that Donna has to appear at least someplace in the special, if only a cameo. It would be like having fish and chips but, guess what, no chips, just fish, the newspaper, and tarter sauce. Your chips are not seen or heard from. Donna is the chips.
  10. I personally enjoyed "Planet of the Dead." There were a couple of times that the Michelle Ryan's character angered me but, that all said, I like Catwoman so her reaction to a few things didn't faze me. As for the ending, I loved it. It helped get across that this is probably going to be the last time we see the 10th doctor happy.
  11. I watched it last night. Pretty good. The ending was good and I didn't so much mind the One God movement because it's a plot thread that is actually going to go somewhere and not just shock value. The first time you see Willy Adams in it is interesting since we're seeing probably the most important man in the history of the colonies as an 11 year old boy. All said, I would recommend it to most anyone. I am intrigued by where some of this tech went between beginning of Battlestar and end of Caprica.
  12. Personally, there are about a handful of things that I put my faith into. Joss Whedon is one of them so I have to believe that any sequel will be good. He's always great when working with his own characters. It's when he works on characters he doesn't own (Alien: Resurrection, Astonishing X-Men, Runaways) that he starts becoming iffy. While yes, the downer ending is one of the reasons that the original was just so freaking awesome. I kinda want to know the stories of the Evil League of Evil (Fake Thomas Jefferson in particular intrigues me.) and I figure a feature version could expand on that. For that matter, a sequel doesn't even need to necessarily focus on Doctor Horrible. It could feature any of the secondary characters, maybe the return of Captain Hammer or something like that.
  13. I'm still going to buy it on Tuesday but, yeah, I am also kinda skeptical. Then again, I don't think anyone was expecting Battlestar to be all that great when it came out. After all, all the old school people were up in arms about Starbuck being a girl.
  14. Today's episode was pretty good. The fact that it was all a dream was kinda telegraphed but it was still handled well and I can't wait until next week. Soundwave is one of my favorite characters so this can only go awesome places. That all said, I was starting to get use to a lack of Sari and they just have to go an ruin it. At least she's useful now. I almost feel like this episode's main purpose is to feature Sari next week going all gung-ho, maybe show she gained a level in Badass. Otherwise, I will continue seeing how exactly she s useful except as holder of the dues ex machina.
  15. I preordered it today. The guy asked if I wanted the collectors or original I asked what was in it. He said "it costs 100 buck, but wait. It comes with a 14 inch batarang". I said "shit, they knew what to put in there to get me to buy it. I'll take it". Dang, and I was going to try and save money also. Well, it is a batarang. Damn, these collector's versions are made for gullible fanboys like us.
  16. Forgot about John Stewart. John Stewart is there as well as Mr. Terrific and Vixen in JLU. That said, Static did start airing first and was the first superhero minority regular in the DCAU. Technically though, you are correct as well since the episode that officially made Static part of the DCAU, "The Big Leagues," came after the first episode of Justice League. Regardless, I am looking forward to Static when you get to it in WFP.
  17. To be fair, it's kinda understandable that Static wasn't originally part of the DCAU. The original comic, while a DC property, was not in the DC Universe. He is now which I would almost put because animated Static was integrated that well into the DCAU. That all said, I will defend Static's place in the DCAU because, frankly, it brings something to it that we didn't get before: an actual minority voice. Steele was in two episodes and Max in Batman Beyond was, well, kinda useless. Even Richie, the major white character on Static, was later said to have been intended to be gay, something that I can remember getting any place else in the series outside of Matt Hagen and his assistant in Feet of Clay. Anyway, I'll get off my soap box.
  18. On the DC end of the spectrum, Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld hasn't been seen since Infinite Crisis. I know I'm not the only one who thinks that she has potential, especially since she was kinda able to fight off the Spectre during Day of Vengeance. As far as Marvel goes, up until recently I would go with Northstar. Northstar is currently appearing in Uncanny so he might finally get some justice.
  19. A couple of new trailers are up highlighting some of the villains. Bane and Harley Quinn are currently up. Arleen Sorkin is the voice of Harley (yes!) and has a new costume. It's kinda hot but also bothers me since it plays like fan service. I hate to see what Ivy will look like if she's in the game. Then again, if Ivy is in the game, Harley and Ivy team fight. Still, as a Harley fan boy, I am so fraking excited for this.
  20. I still watch Power Rangers. Power Rangers in Space was probably the best season of the episode. It was the first where there was a real season long plot line, the villains were sympathetic, and Countdown to Destruction, the season finale, was perhaps the best episode of the entire franchise. All the previous villains from every previous series take over the universe. That and we get Rita and Zedd so that is always a plus. Now, something that I hate to admit I used to watch was the soap opera Passions. The show caught me about the time that it introduced a character that a forum I used to post on called Zombie Succubus Witch Charity. So convoluted yet with lines like, "I'm picking mushrooms to destroy goodness" what's not to love? That's the one with a mermaid and a megalomaniacal monk as characters, yes? Those aren't even the best characters the show ever had. The main reason I ever watched was one of the characters was a witch named Tabitha who had a living doll named Timmy. There were times that she came close to realizing this was a tv show. Half the time it hinged on self-parody. Over the course of the show, the town in the soap was hit with tidal waves, hurricanes, a meteor, earthquakes, blizzards and, in the last episode, a volcano. I might add this town was in New England. I guess I just like terrible shows that mock their genre. The WB had a show called Popular. One episode had all the female characters hit PMS at the same time and get locked in the girls bathroom. The same episode had the line, "They called me quacks."

  22. I'mm choosing to look at cartoons that I still like to watch in addition to having enjoyed when I was younger. Also, I think it's fair to limit myself to one DCAU show. 1. Justice League/Justice League Unlimited: My favorite part of Justice League was that it took everything of the DCAU up to that point and turned it up to 11. Plot points that we didn't think anything of before suddenly came to the forefront. Things that you thought nothing of had so much depth. Then you have episodes like "Wild Cards" and "This Little Piggy" that make you crack up and pull on your emotions at the same time. Truly, just awesomeness animated and personified. 2. X-Men: I owe this cartoon to making me a comic book fan. The X-Men were just another thing to me until this. I bought my first non-Disney comic because it was cool. I played X-Men until Power Rangers came along but that's something else entirely. It gets bonus points for portraying a good version of The Dark Phoenix Saga. 3. Darkwing Duck: I loved Disney as a kid. Sure, it's not based on a comic book but it has so many elements that both kids and adults could enjoy in a cartoon. While there was little to no continuity at times, each episode could go from sci-fi one day to horror to your basic evil twin episode. I still look at the episode "Just Us Justice Ducks" as being an inspired tribute to the silver age of comics. 4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: In hindsight, this is a kinda whacked out idea. That said, it is really just great voice acting, some great writing, and some great humor. I do kinda grown at some of the later episodes but you can become doomed to jump the shark eventually if you fail to recognize when enough is enough. 5. Spider-Man the Animated Series (90's): Some of what this show did was just awesome. We have a kids cartoon that had continuity long before Superman The Animated Series. Actions carried over from one episode to another and nothing was truly stand-alone. It gets bonus points for making a good Clone Saga.
  23. Would it be too much to hope for Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly or George Newbern as Batman and Superman? That said, if it makes enough, maybe we'll get Superman/Batman: The Supergirl From Krypton? I mean, is there a such thing as too much Darkseid?

    I actually kinda like the president's daughter. I don't see her as neccesarily being a bitch. Last episode, she was defending herself from an accusation. If anything,I trust Ethan less than I don't trust Olivia. She's actually a somewhat interesting character. She's being set up as this season's Sherrie Palmer. If she turns out not to be working an angle, then she's someone we can cheer for the downfall of. If she is truly sincere, then she might get the Chloe treatment and end up being a sympathetic character down the line.
