  1. Yeah, but I still take issue with him speaking like an poor urban Londoner. That #$## makes my ears bleed - unless it's Vinnie Jones, who they may as well have just cast if they wanted to take Alfred in that direction. Take the joke as far as you can go. It'd be like if Geoffrey from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was a street-speaking Butler. It worked for Will Smith because it was a fish-out-of-water comedy. That was his whole character's thing, but you couldn't have Jazzy Jeff playing the butler. It just doesn't make sense.
  2. Nothing. I just have standards. Yes, even for television.
  3. Wow, this is shaping up to be a train wreck of a half-ass written show. If the writer's put half as much effort into the dialogue and plot as they did token cameos that (outside of the Penguin, maybe) have no real purpose other than arbitrary, ill-timed fan-wanking, it might have been half-decent. The premise and universe of a pre-Batman Gotham has a lot of possibilities, and I'm not opposed to said universe having younger versions of Batman's rogue's gallery within it, but tipping your hand on Catwoman, Poison Ivy, the Riddler, the Penguin and possibly even the Joker all in the pilot is just a really poor sense of timing. Going from "case closed" on the Wayne murders to "frame job" to "must find truth" in the scope of 49 minutes is another example of bad writing and timing. You can't force the drama. You can't make a show good by overloading it with fan-fiction-esque cameos. It just makes the entire show seem contrived and amateurish. Oh, and whoever casted Alfred should be fired. I'm all for reinterpreting characters or even reinventing them, but only to a certain degree. You might as well make Bruce Wayne a Duck Dynasty trust-fund baby complete with all the charm of a swamp-bred denizen.
  4. They'll be fine. She's not JUST a GI Joe toy anyway...the character was part of a Transformers episode. Besides, Joe fans had to share a couple of SDCC exclusives with TF in the past. SDCC /= Fanclub (TFCC). SDCC is a celebration of all things nerdy and dorky so a mish-mash like SDCC Starscream + Cobra Commander is standard fare. A collector's club is solely dedicated to that property. The only reason this figure is coming out is because FunPub has rights to both Transformers AND G.I. Joe. Regardless, this toy is strictly G.I. Joe themed (figure + vehicle + child of two G.I. Joe characters). Her inclusion in the Transformers mythos was more of an Easter Egg in the cartoon for Joe Fans (which is why Ol' Snake got his due, as well). Besides, this toy doesn't really tickle my Transformers-fan-cy like it does my G.I. Joe one. I feel sympathy for the TF purists who feel like they're getting shafted with a Joe toy in a TF club. BUT I'm glad she's coming out. I'll have to get her on the secondary market, though because I'll never give FunPub my CC# ever again.
  5. I like the idea, but I'm also a fan of the Joe property. So I understand all the hate coming from Transformers-only fans who don't really want a G.I. Joe toy as their exclusive. My only demand is that Ol' Snake gets himself a figure to go along side the spawn of Flint and Lady-Jaye.
  6. I'm very excitedly awaiting December. I went Commodore with a few extras that put me to 4 types of each soldier. Oh, and it was really nice that the blue Security Troopers' kit was made available to purchase even though the stretch goal for it never happened. That one turned out to be my favourite.
  7. Chock up one more for the Suicide Squad roster.
  8. This show is awesome and keeps getting better. Boo Winter Olympics.
  9. No, they touched on her being of age now. In this series, one season = one year real time. I'll take this show any day of the week over that boring SHIELD garbage that Whedon's putting out.
  10. Oh definitely. That would be glorious. And I would laugh hysterically if Batfleck made a cameo later on down the line.
  11. They've really stepped up their game in Season 2. Season 1 only kept my interest because of the island scenes (and the never ending train of attractive women), but Season 2 has actually made what's going on in the city interesting as well. Nice to see that the show's maturing and evolving.
  12. Putting the omitted team members into the blind bags just pushed these into the "buy" category.
