Surely it's got to be Sideshow Mel, right? A 'terrific' character (he's caused more than his share of belly laughs) but not iconic (like Krusty), voiced by someone who's won an Emmy for the role (well, it'd have to be among others... but wouldn't it for most of the characters?), Sideshow Mel is the replaceable sort of… » 7/21/14 10:53am Yesterday 10:53am

When do we get our Rupert Bear live action film? Then we could have a Superted one, and they could team up with Paddington and Winnie-the-Pooh for a Bearvengers film. It's GOLD (for an increasingly small portion of the British public) » 7/18/14 2:23am Friday 2:23am

Book 4 wasn't a good ending. It was for Marvin, but not for any other character (and it's a pretty dull book, until the final chapter). Mostly Harmless is far from perfect, but it's a much stronger conclusion for Arthur, Trillian, Agrajag and the Vogons. Bleaker, yes, but stronger. » 7/17/14 5:16pm Thursday 5:16pm

There's another one still to be announced though, right? Unless they're planning on bringing out Avengers 3 in 2017, there's going to be Ant-Man in 2015, two films in 2016 and two films in 2017. I thought the expectation for the other film was either Black Panther or Black Widow, right? » 7/17/14 2:07pm Thursday 2:07pm

I was a little saddened by the lack of a similar outcry when Smith left. True, Capaldi's a much more established actor than Smith was (and is already very highly respected by the general public), but I really felt that Smith's exit was given short shrift, by both the public and the show (a rushed one hour tying up a… » 7/16/14 2:44pm Wednesday 2:44pm

I loved it at the time... but I was still quite young ;) in retrospect certain elements of season 6 really don't hold up, particularly the magic=drug stuff (which is a lot more heavy handed on rewatches than it seemed at the time), and both Buffy's and Xander's arcs are pretty clunky throughout (I still very much… » 7/12/14 7:52pm 7/12/14 7:52pm

That's been the big problem with Clara - she's The Impossible Girl, and nothing more. At least Amy and River's stories were directly linked to their characters - The Girl Who Waited and the Doctor's reverse-time love interest are both stories that tell us a lot about the people involved. But the companion splintered… » 6/27/14 7:00pm 6/27/14 7:00pm

Yeah. It's horrible that she has been hurt, but it's not like it's a blameless accident, her family is responsible. Her family who then attempted fraud putting several people's jobs at risk. KFC shouldn't be rewarding fraud; social services should be getting that kid out of there and into a safe environment. » 6/24/14 1:35pm 6/24/14 1:35pm

Dexter was going to be my pick. Some serious hate watching there, starting with season 6 (to think, I actually defended season 5. I regret everything.). I saw it through to the end. The stupid, beardy, lumberjack end. It was remarkable watching Breaking Bad and Dexter end around the same time, seeing Breaking Bad do… » 6/20/14 4:51pm 6/20/14 4:51pm

Oh, but that whole reveal is soooo much better in the radio, tv and book versions. I love Martin Freeman, but he didn't get the response right at all. Arthur needs to be not just an average Englishman, but a SATIRE of an Englishman, completely unprepared for what's thrown at him. Freeman is too normal, essentially too… » 6/19/14 4:39pm 6/19/14 4:39pm
