i didnt. not until '83 anyway :thumbsup

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 01:00 AM)

Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:32 AM)

They always save the saddest deaths for last in the "in memoriam" sequence.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:30 AM)

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:11 AM)

"Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mean Mini Maui just tikkity tappin'! Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HEY!"

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 07:05 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (26 February 2017 - 07:03 PM)

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 05:32 PM)

he's been out what, 3 days? Most shipping methods aren't THAT fast...

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 04:52 PM)

Does anyone have MP Cheetor in hand yet?

@  Noideaforaname : (26 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

I remember watching Doug all the time as a kid, but I watch it now and I don't at all see the appeal. *shrug* On the plus side, it added the word "nematode" to my vocabulary.

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 10:47 AM)

@  unluckiness : (26 February 2017 - 09:25 AM)

better than the current ones at least

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:39 AM)

@PlutoniumBoss *Pinwheel fistbump*

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

What a world we live in where we can actually reasonably speculate that Hourman might be in a live action tv show.


This year is his 75th anniversary too, so it took long enough. I do wonder which version they'd do. I assume Rick (just a great grandson now), but with Ivo being involved I don't feel I can quite rule out Hourman III, even though Arrowverse Ivo wasn't quite into that like the comics (or not so far, I'm still finishing up S2). Rex would be possible, but they're already drowning in scientist heroes, so I figure Rick would be the most likely.

Dr Mid-Nite would also be perfect. Never been done as Live-Action, he's a rarity in that he's ACTUALLY a doctor, which would come in super-handy for everyone else. I'm talking about the modern version, Dr Pieter Cross, not the original. Using the modern version also means they can play around with a possible love triangle plot, as in the comics Dinah dated Dr Mid-Nite for a large chunk of the time while Oliver was dead. He's also a pretty cool looking character.

Here's the character info from casting calls. Spoiler material, I guess, though it's only descriptions, no names.


One does sound like Kendra Saunders, but I don't know if that'd be possible. Hawkman on Smallville was pretty bad. The wings were terrible. I wonder if she'd make it onto Arrow and hook up with Roy. IF that is her. Description fits perfectly, but it fits just as perfectly for Wildcat II. Wouldn't have thought of her except for Scav mentioning her in the Arrow thread. I'd say she's the far likelier candidate.

There's also a line from Caity Lotz, if you consider that a spoiler too.

My guesses would be Booster Gold, Hawkgirl, and Static.

 

I'm still not sure what the deal is with Caity Lotz.

Except, Booster was on Smallville, so he violates the "never on tv" clue.

 

DC might not own the rights to Static anymore...the whole Milestone 2.0 thing is throwing questions that way.

 

I've seen some speculation that the latina woman could be be Yolanda Montez, Wild Cat II, or Bea Decosta, Fire.

I don't put much stock in the "never been on TV before" thing. It seemed like an offhand comment from the network, rather than from Berlanti or Johns. Keep in mind there are probably going to be a lot more DCU characters on this too, it's not necessarily these three that would fit that bill.

I think the other live-action Static project is probably more of a problem. It seems different to the other movie/TV examples to me, although this would be a more mature version of the character.

It's sad that so few characters come to mind, even with such a generic description.

It could be Black Lightning, as that one site mused. John Stewart would fit that general description too.

I still think its Fury. By day she tries to fit in with society and by night she's Fury.

 

Although Fire would be pretty awesome.

As Fire has been one of my favorite characters (what can I say, it was the Adam Hughes JLI which introduced me to a lot of DC), I'd like to see her, but really only if they go the all out glamourous super model/super spy version of her, which would likely not fly in todays...culture.

Why wouldn't it fit? Fire would fill the ethnic quota too. She'd also fit the idea of it being a lgbt related team of heroes.

The only problem is having both her and Firestorm being redundantly flame themed ish.

He's talking about how she was a bit of a Latina / Brazilian stereotype.

Hehe, I remember the sexual innuendo Hawkgirl Shayera made over Flash mooning over Fire in that JLU ep. Something like "... You like her? I heard she is... Brazilian...". and they were glancing at Fire while she was together with Ice, haha.

And im just joking about the new team being gay in-universe. It was really more about the actors involved, sorry.

I guess it's pretty lucky that they already established Jason Rusch, wonder if that guy's available now.

I'm actually not that torn up about that. Robbie Amell is a fairly limited actor, and I don't think he's been all that great as Ronnie. If they end up going with Jason in the new show I'm fine with that.

They didn't say he was left off for any bad reason just that they 'can't say why'. Perhaps a plot point?
