  1. NOV 2017 ANIMATED WRESTLING GIF THREAD

    I think that about at least half the spots I see in matches.
  2. Marvel Comics Omnibus thread

    I'm assuming pushed, though that's not what the press release indicated.
  3. 2017 The Stuff About Sports Media Thread

    Mike and Mike's last show was okish, but absent the sort of emotion you might expect from two guys who have worked together for almost 18 years. They did a little reminiscing and some of their usual banter, but I didn't really feel like there was any emotion between them. Maybe they're just stoic or they saved the emotion for off-screen, but it made me wonder if the rumors that they stopped talking off-camera are true. Golic gave some interviews this week which made it seem that he found out the show was ending after Greenberg had agreed to do the new morning show. so it certainly sounds like the decision was made without him. Honestly, I haven't listened to Mike & Mike regularly for about a decade, and listening to a lot of the show the past few months convinced me it's not essential listening for me anymore, but I'm still going to miss it.
  4. 2017 WHATEVER THE HELL USED TO BE TNA DISCUSSION THREAD

    What's the deal with Tenay? I didn't realize he was on bad terms with the company. That paragraph from the Observer is so badly written, it's maddening. I had to read the part in parentheses three times to figure it out. That fragment just goes on and on and on..... Meltzer writing at it's worst.
  5. Marvel Comics Omnibus thread

    It feels like the end of Superior would have been the logical jumping off point for Slott. He had already told a lot of stories by the time Superior rolled around and the ending of Superior paid off most of what he'd been setting up in ASM, as well as putting Pete back in the mask and reaffirming that Peter Parker wanted to be Spider Man. It was also a fitting conclusion to Ock's character arc. For me, most of the fun stuff had already taken place by the end of Superior. What's been done since then has been a case of diminishing returns. I did enjoy Spider-verse a lot. It seems likely that Slott's actual departure from the book will feel less important that it would have if he had left when Pete reclaimed the Spidey identity. I actually dislike most of Peter Parker's character development under Slott, from the multiple relationships to becoming (fairly easily) a "sooper scientist' to becoming Tony Stark-lite. The reinvention of his character after Superior as a jet-setting tech billionaire was probably a bad idea.
  6. DC MOVIE THREAD

    I'm expecting this to be better than BVS - you barely need to lift your foot to step over that bar - but so far most of the reviews I've seen have been bad to middling and the trailers make me think it's overbooked, overly-busy CGI mess. Does anyone really want the love child of Vince McMahon, Zack Snyder, and Michael Bay. Haven't decided yet, but I'm leaning towards waiting for it to hit Redbox or Comcast On Demand. Edit: I googled Zack Snyder so I could spell his name correctly (I originally typed "Zach") and the first hit was headline from a review of the movie. Apparently, Business Insider thinks the movie is "agonizing to watch.". LOL. I LIKE PAIN. TAKE MY MONEY!
  7. Marvel Comics Omnibus thread

    Yeah, Spider-Man has had it's share of high points under Slott - and I loved Superior Spider-Man - but it really does think he's running on fumes. I actually like longish runs. In general, I don't think 5-7 years is too long a run if the writer is motivated. I'd prefer a seven-year run with some slow periods to changing creative teams and status quo every two years or so, as is the norm these days. But, realistically, most writers don't have plans for seven years of stories when they sign on, or they lose interest and move on to other projects. Neither the marketplace or the business model is set up for a years-long run. Starman and David's Hulk run are the outliers (and there are plenty of down periods in David's Hulk). Slott's an odd one for me. I've mostly enjoyed his ASM run - and Superior was outstanding - but i don't consider him a great writer or one of my favorites. At the moment, i have virtually no interest in reading anything else Slott has written or seeing him jump to a new book after he leaves ASM.
  8. NOV 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I won't miss Ellsworth, but he got a better run than anyone expected and will command better paydays on the indys. Nothing about his look, mic skills, physique, in-ring ability, charisma.... did I miss anything?... made me think he'd ever make it to NXT, so good for him.
  9. Pages, Panels, Pin-ups... Covers

    Lol, I googled Greg Land to see what he looked like. Was expecting him to more closely resemble the bald guy.
  10. DANIEL BRYAN WRESTLING AGAIN, etc. etc.

    Given how fond of alternative medicine Bryan seems to be, I"m sure he's already been seen by Papa Shango.
  11. DANIEL BRYAN WRESTLING AGAIN, etc. etc.

    Yeah, someone got confused. I joked that I had no faith in the WWE doctors because I had just listened to the Punk shoot with Cabana. Punk had some sort of growth on his back and the WWE doctor(s) kept telling him it was nothing. Supposedly went to a real doctor and they diagnosed a staph infection. The interview is basically one long story about Punk getting hurt and beat up and WWE personnel doing the "It's just a scratch! It's just a flesh wound bit!" from Monty Python. After that, I gave my opinion about Daniel Bryan. Someone posting after me kinda confused the two and thought Punk was talking about Bryan during the podcast.
  12. RAW IS THAT EPISODE OF FRESH PRINCE WHERE WILL"S DAD DUMPS HIM

    I'm not all at convinced Jordan could pull off a heel turn any better than he's done with his babyface singles push. Jordan's pleading with Angle was... odd. I'm fairly certain Creative intended him to come off as sympathetic, but my main issue with Triple H pedigree'ing him to end the segment was I kinda wish Angle has given him an angle slam before he started to talk. Angle's knees appear to have been badly photoshopped in from a different photo. I'm kinda interested in the proposed Angle-HHH match, but it may well be terrible.

    Hiring people who are actually good at their job is a bold departure, but I think it is the right way to go.

    They won't when Bill Watts becomes Commissioner of Facebook.
