I'm holding out vain hope that she'll join Ray on the new show. Just start that show with them as a couple, and let it build from there, no on-off relationship, not even any courting. I know it's highly unlikely that they'll pull her from Arrow, but her relationship with Oliver is doing her no favours, and she… » 4/15/15 10:51am Wednesday 10:51am

I really should have got it sooner (I knew there was something weird about the way she tapped the soldiers, but I couldn't pin it down), but I figured it out when the soldiers started saying they needed May's pain in the same way Eva had, so Eva was definitely being controlled in the same way as them. » 4/15/15 9:21am Wednesday 9:21am

Or, to put it another way, because comics (along with most other forms of media) are severely lacking in female representation, so when a good female character is found they get promoted and utilised wherever possible. Meanwhile Firestorm is neither necessary nor as popular as the main male DC superheroes who… » 4/15/15 10:46am Wednesday 10:46am

I love that you used 'neigh' in a sentence, but I feel obliged to tell you that it's 'nay'; the former only means the sound of a horse. Which you're welcome to make, but I feel it disrupts the sentence flow ;) » 4/14/15 7:06am Tuesday 7:06am

Well, Phase 1 hard to pin down, since Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk and Thor all supposedly take place in the same week, and Iron Man 2 obviously picks up right after Iron Man. However, in Phase 2 we get slightly more time confirmation, with IM3 put as 6 months after Avengers, Thor 2 put as 2 years after Thor, and… » 4/13/15 11:57am Monday 11:57am

This does make sense to me. The Inhumans film has already been just about ousted from Phase 3 (the Spider-Man deal put it after Infinity War p2, so it couldn't be part of the buildup to that), so giving it a full on TV show with room to develop a wide range of characters - not unlike the old X-Men animated show -… » 4/09/15 10:07am 4/09/15 10:07am

Well, I don't know what the plan is for Arrow's future, but I've sort of been assuming they've been anticipating 5 seasons (the flashbacks at least are limited to that, and I'd assume there's some sort of 5 season plan they pitched to the network initially). If Arrow does end after 5 seasons, The Flash, Justice League… » 4/04/15 4:01pm 4/04/15 4:01pm

Muppets Tonight was generally fine (I enjoyed it as a kid, and there's some nice characters and storylines in there, but it doesn't really hold up in the Muppets pantheon). My main issue with it was that it was trying to be an all-out comedy show. There were no genuine moments in it, there was no time for reflection.… » 4/03/15 10:56am 4/03/15 10:56am

Basically a 12 hour movie? Terrific! I look forward to being able to discuss it with no-one, because who is going to be keeping the same pace as me? And watching multiple hours in one sitting is a fantastic way to ignore all the little touches and details and moments that make all the best series great. And any… » 4/02/15 2:22pm 4/02/15 2:22pm

Sod everything else in the trailer for the rest of the season, what made my heart stop was Wells walking in saying 'Hello, Cisco'. That wasn't just a clip from before, right? They're definitely heading back there? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH » 4/01/15 11:23am 4/01/15 11:23am

It was a tough decision. He stayed up months agonising about it. Both lifestyles offer so many benefits, and of course he does love ABBA. It took almost a year of soul searching, full body waxing, and anal sex, but finally he chose to be heterosexual, because he found it easier to spell. » 4/01/15 1:41pm 4/01/15 1:41pm
