"I'm not sure what you're looking for, Sensei. For my part, I didn't know any comics readers after about age 8, and kept my hobby mostly to myself. I didn't look for or pine for acceptance for literally decades. Today's…"
"Agreed to all above, but thanks for reminding me about Sandman Mystery Theatre, Rob. That's the kind of implanted continuity I really love, where nothing really is changed from the original, but additional context and depth is added. And what a…"
"Binging Dark Season 2. I loved Season 1, as my wife and I untangled all the timelines, but the downside of something this complicated.is that we forgot completely who was who by the time this season started, and -- by diving in without prep -- are…"
"I think that's "Sergeant Save-a Ho," CK, but yeah, I've definitely noticed that tendency in Wojo in my scattershot re-watch of the series. (I'm doing it randomly, just recording several episodes from MeTV a week, and…"
"Wojo was intimidated by Harris, who was pretty smart, and both of them -- and Barney, and Fish -- were intimidated by Dietrich, who knew everything.
Yemana was not intimidated by Deitrich, because he was cool like that."
"Back then, before Magnum, Wojo was the only Vietnam vet portrayed on TV (or in the movies) who wasn't a criminal, a lunatic or both. I kinda appreciated that, even though he wasn't portrayed as very smart."
"I remember that episode of Barney Miller (but then, I've seen 'em all). In "Kidnapping," Barrie Youngfellow played Marsha Dixon, a prostitute whom Wojciehowicz arrested along with her business manager. Wojo had a rather ugly…"
"I like Barrie Youngfellow... just caught her in an episode of Barney Miller a few weeks ago. And she's Gary Sandy's love interest (and Linda Rondstadt stand-in) in a memorable (if not particularly good) episode of WKRP."
"I completed the run of It's a Living, a silly sitcom from the '80s that had a couple of seasons on ABC and then another four years in first-run syndication. It was about the lives and loves of a quartet (a quintet in the first season) of…"
"I just tore through the entire first season of Doom Patrol in about five days, and I'd say it's hands down the best live action DC adaptation ever done for television.
Some random thoughts on the series:
The group's lineup…"
"Somewhere buried on this site (where I can't find it), someone made the point that Mary Batson doesn't change into a different person when she becomes Mary Marvel because she is basically happy being herself. Similarly, Freddy Freeman…"
Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.
