I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

This is gonna make the wait between movies ever so slightly easier to bear.

I just hope Marvel's success makes the show bolder than "Arrow", which includes loads of DCU references but mostly bends over backwards to decrease the super-ness of them. Code names and costumes are what separate super criminals from the bad guys they fight on X-Files and Fringe.

Yeah it's simple... They never actually showed his body, the last time we saw him, he was being worked on by paramedics, and then Fury told steve that he was dead but never showed the body. It's like in x-men 3 I still don't think Scott is dead as we've never seen a body.

The options are:

1) Fury lied. Which is definitely true, it'd just be that he lied MORE....

2) LMD. Then or now.

3) He's been reborn as the Vision but they're hiding it for now. Probably unlikely.

4) Some yet unrevealed super-power or super-powered object.

I assume it'll be exactly what I expected the post-credits stinger to be when Coulson "died" in The Avengers - he was dead for a couple of seconds before the paramedics resuscitated and stabilized him, and Fury decided to fib to give the team extra motivation.

I'm hoping we get a fun episode where an Avengers team member shows up (presumably either an inexpensive actor or someone who's kept off-screen throughout) and everybody has to run around keeping Coulson hidden and pretending he's still dead.

I think that Coulson showing up at the end of Ironman 3 would have been nice. Too bad they didn't do that, as it might have helped the film's lackluster third act.

My guess is these in equal moderation. LMD are something that will likely need to be introduced anyway since we are dealing with a SHIELD series.

Meaning almost anyone other than RDJ.

Seeing as the other costars only got 200k for Avengers, RDJ got $50m (and one that's going to be fairly close with IM3. I think IM3's take will be the bigger. More screen time for RDJ, and he's the focus.

The movie guys could do the show and maybe get a better deal that way.

Or just keep going with other studios. Helmsworth's been getting 5mil a film now.

It's a shame that (almost)anything X is out. This series could go great with the hundreds of awesome X-characters, good,bad, and neutral, who inhabit that same world, just a very different version of it.

X-characters are more 'street' level, many can be done well with little more than snazzy costume and some styrofoam columns.

I'd love to see how SHIELD would deal with the mutant community. Both are being attacked from within and without. Would the personal bigotry of some agents affect their work.

Having x-characters would give it another level to play to, when it wanted to.

Sigh.

At one part Coulsson was moving a bit awkwardly. LMD?

I hope that they managed to save his brain, and have created a synthesised body for him.

Then have little additions to that, until we get close to Avengers 2. The show's season finale before A2 debuts should have the last shot of him combining and altering physical aspects of his body, and finishes on him answering someone, but asking her not to call him Phil.

Call him 'The Vision.'
