This sort of stuff is why I stopped reading mainstream comic books 25 years ago--especially X-Men. If you have to rely on “OMG! This changes EVERYTHING!”, you don’t have a good story to tell.
Yet another show that relies on nostalgia, but completely forgets the context. They’ll have to throw out basically everything about the story that had a meaningful impact and will be left with nothing that contemporary viewers can related to.
This is fairly typical for people from that era—especially soldiers. It’s an understandable side effect of dealing with both a polite, Christian society and a horrible war.

This pretty much sums up why I’m NOT a Star Wars fan.
By ignoring the realities of politics, economics, logistics, trade, agriculture, manufacturing, communications, taxation, infrastructure, the Constitution of the United States, and the US Marines (in no particular order).
Dear Director and Cinematographer:
Glad to hear I’m not the only one. I gave up after 2 or three episodes. I’ve been thinking about doing a binge to get through it and see if I missed something better in later episodes, but... so far haven’t had the impetus. I’ve been rewatching Jerimiah and B5 instead.
PLEASE tell me that was a pack of “donettes” that Coulson dropped in his bag.
I made no such accusation.
My father would have been 97 this autumn, had he not died of cancer 11 years ago.
As I recall it, the new branch didn’t fade, it just regained its bright color, indicating that its lives were safe now.
Except that’s not the way it’s described (and illustrated) in the movie. The Ancient One draws a line in the air. Remove the stone and there is a branch. But...Banner puts the stone back, and the branch folds back into the original timestream. There is, again, only one line in the air.
Came to say the same thing.
One thing that he doesn’t touch on (though I’m quite certain he does just by habit) is to not make the deadline “monolithic”—i.e., “Finish project by July 10".
This is the “theatre educator” in me coming out, but... They shouldn’t need a professional to tell them that the microphone doesn’t need to be in that location to get a good reading.
thanks for the mansplaining!
Well... to be fair: Since they appear to be immune to gravity, inertia, and the laws of fluid dynamics... they’re not really in any danger of popping out.
One small nit-pic from those photos: Who’s the sound tech? There are so many better options than that (I say this as a retired theatre technician who’s lent his services to more than his fair share of high-school shows).
Personal pet peeve: Hand-held diagnostic devices that only have a few blinking lights.
