It’s my understanding that there were a number of headaches associated with that happening that made it so it won’t happen again. I hate to be vague, but I wasn’t in a position to know exactly what they were.
Oh god, let’s also add casting new Doctor Who Doctors to this list. It’s redundant to say “Doctor Who’s Doctor” and “the new Doctor Who is” annoys pedants.
I think Ragnarok, by virtue of being surprising given the rest of the entries, will be the best. Last Jedi might be meh? I think it’ll be good, actually, but it’ll be less “good” than Ragnarok. Justice League is either going to be good or a mess and nowhere in between. (Actually, possibly both at the same time,…
I look forward to them so much. I also, to this day, remember the first time Rob laughed at something I wrote, I considered it such a compliment.
I actually agree with McFarlane on this, too. I think people think it’s hard to just use the future or space as a setting for all sorts of positive and negative stories and everything has to be the worst possible thing.
Every single time I’ve wished that. The headlines look ridiculous.
It’s Iron Man, for me. It started it all and I still remember the utter shock at how good it was. It may not be the best, but it’s the one that I enjoy the most.
I think that’s not true as much as everyone thinks it is, but sure, I’ll bite on the times we’ve done it: if the stuff they’ve chosen to market their work with isn’t good? That’s a bad sign. That means the stuff they’ve intentionally done to show the best possible light is making it look worse. So it’s worth noting…
Everyone but me. I don’t know if my stuff is as bad as I think it is, but it’s so awful in my mind I would rather never share it.
If we let it really bother us, we’d be even more crazy than we already are.
As Germain kind of noted, we do have an office in New York that Beth, Charles, and I are based out of. The rest of the staff is much more spread out, so we use Slack for everything. We have a meeting once a week to sketch out a general plan for the future. Mostly, our office chats are a mix of dropping news bits and…
*pushes up glasses* Technically, LOTR is not a trilogy but was always meant as either many more books or a single whole—yeah, I know, I’m just trying to weasel out of the question. LOTR is so important, but I have a stronger personal affection for Thrawn.
It’s actually, 100% Star Trek: Discovery. I love having a Star Trek show back on my schedule.
My brother’s cat is as soft as a rabbit but also a jumping, hyperactive screaming nightmare and I have to lock her in the bathroom at feeding time so she doesn’t steal from my octogenarian cat.
Any pictures posted by trolls won’t be visible. Only approved commenters (the ones AV Club has followed) have the ability to do that. All other images are blurred out.
Let me explain how comments work: some commenters who have been here a long time are not greyed because the staff has given them that status. Everyone else is greyed. Periodically, we, the staff, read the greys and we can choose to ungrey people. (Specific comments on specific articles can be ungreyed in number of…
Rob is wrong as usual. Homer all the way.
We talk about things we like a lot. I know people think we don’t, but we do. We also tend to give things a more “meh” review than blast it into oblivion, which is also a thing people do now. The thing is that negative sticks out more in your mind AND more people click on negative, so it stands out.
What is a book? I kid, I read a lot, but it’s really hard to find time to read things not for this job. I’m re-reading Le Carre’s Smiley books this summer, though, and it’s very pleasant.
I have a number of paylists on Spotify, and the one I use most often is labeled “80s-90s One Hit Wonders”
