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)

ALL HAIL THE MAGIC CONCH!

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

Hail Hydra!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Don't we still have Hydra?

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 06:10 PM)

There was always the chance we had some Japanese members on the board.

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 06:01 PM)

I got my MP Primal pretty quickly, but I haven't sent the payment confirmation on my Cheetor yet

@  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?

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 03:11 PM)

@  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.

@  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.

Well, yeah. But as usual lately, it'll be a Barry Allen that borrows every single personality trait from Wally West.

I'll only watch this if they cast either Neil Patrick Harris or Jensen Ackles as Barry.


NPH is too pricey for the CW and Ackles is busy kissing angels on Supernatural.

I'm rather surprised that it took this long for someone to mention the 90's series....

Despite being rasied on Wally I'm enjoying the current Manapul/Buccelato more than I have any other Flash run in the last twenty years so I'm fine with them using Barry. I think it's really hard to make speed look convincing in live action though, so I'm not confident that the special effects will be very charismatic. The odd brief burst of speed here and there in Smallville was okay, but I wouldn't want to see a whole show built around that model. I hope they do something interesting and watchable with it.

Entertainment Weekly says that one of the kids from Glee is your new Barry Allen.

QUOTE
Grant Gustin, whom you might recognize as Glee?s Sebastian, has officially been cast as Barry Allen (aka The Flash) in The CW?s hit show Arrow. Gustin will appear in episodes 208, 209, and 220.

Barry Allen is described as ?a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante,? according to a press release.


I've never seen Glee so I can't comment on the kid's acting chops, but there you go.

I'm not sure you'd be able to say much, Sebastian was a pretty minor character, anyway. He was in, what, three episodes, total?

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Well, the same could be said about Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, but I feel I've seen enough of her in Glee to have a certain perspective on her abilities as an actor.

So they'll introduce Flash in Arrow then create a pilot with a different actor them bring that actor back to Arrow as a recurring but different character. Just like Smallville was with Aquaman. Sigh.

I wrote 'probably'. The cliffhanger last season showed angels falling like comets but it wasn't shown for Castiel. I haven't seen the preview trailer either so its just speculation that he's human too (unless Metatron did something else for him). I HOPE he's still angelic. Being human and nuts would be awful for him.

Arrow's Flash can fight non super powered folks. The Rogues are paraphernalia based non metas (well, depending on which Weather Wizard)

Actually, most of them think so as well. It was Cold's idea and most of them have disliked him ever since.

Hmm, I'm curious about that. Maybe I'll look it up. I have no idea who the nu52 Rogues are so could be worth a look (is Kid Trickster Axel part of the team?). Weather Wizard internalized his powers before and Mirror Master has too abstract ish abilities to be limited by a gun but Cold, Heatwave and Boomerang all rely on hand held weapons. The latter three can just be street level bad guys.

Kid Trickster, Captain Cold, Glider (His Sister), Mirror Master, Heatwave, and Weather Wizard are the current Rogues lineup. Trickster is still mostly a gadgeteer, but has a cybernetic arm now (got it a few issues ago after a bad encounter with one of Grodd's apes), Cold can generate beams of ice, Glider is sorta of mental projection while her body is in a coma, Mirror Master is trapped in reflective surfaces which leads to his mirror realm that serves as the Rogue's hideout, Heatwave looks a bit like a Steampunk Cyborg. Weather Wizard is pretty much a male version of Storm. Boomerang was part of Suicide Squad, and was still weapon based with pretty much the same look. I don't know if new character Turbine has joined them or not, but was last seen with them. They're all still pretty much street-level criminals with the same rules and morals and occasional anti-hero leanings (They helped save people during the Gorilla warfare arc, and look to be opposing the Crime Syndicate during Forever Evil). So they've not really changed much beyond how they use their powers.

I rather like how its all handed, they've not quite gotten used to having powers rather then weapons/gadgets, as its 'recent' (not long before the start of series, I don't think they've had them for much longer then a year and half comic time) so its not like they are really overpowered or anything; as Flash alone has still been able to handle them. and since it all Cold's idea; it puts him at occasional odds with the rest of the team as not everyone if fond of the end results which I think is a nice reflection of general fan's mixed reactions.

Semi-related: Flash #19 is a pretty fun issue, in which Barry temporarily looses his powers to Dial H, and ends up using the Rogues old weapons to save people till his powers return near the end of the issue.

Also this week we got Flash 23.3 which is the Rogues one-shot.

EDIT: Fixed a mistake I made about one of the characters.
