Here's a segment from one of my local stations, with area fans and creators giving their thoughts.

What I found interesting was this bit from Roy Thomas, who's lived in my area for quite some time.

Quote
"I'm sadder than I can say that Stan has died, even though I know, from my recent phone conversations with him, that he was more than ready to leave this Earth. I'm so grateful that, by sheer circumstance, I got to spend a half hour or so with him this past Saturday, less than 48 hours before he passed away. At that time, it was obvious that he lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy that everybody had got to know at conventions and in movie cameos, but when I asked him about future cameos, he expressed a real interest in making them, if he could find a way to do it without there being too much trouble. He asked me about Dann [wife of Thomas] and all the animals on our place (Dann had, at his request, sent him a DVD we made for him a couple of years ago), and got fairly animated when talking about his battles with publisher Martin Goodman over doing Spider-Man. I opined as how maybe the one important creative decision Goodman ever made was when he commissioned Stan to create a super-hero group back in 1961. Stan seemed to get a kick out of that. He posed for a couple of pictures with me, and then the last one with me and my friend and manager John Cimino, who had worked (in concert with Stan's buddy and handler Jon Bolerjack) to arrange for Stan and me to get together one more time. But I wish I could look forward to seeing him and sparring around with him again. Still, I consider myself so very lucky to have known and worked with him for so many years...one of the most important mythmakers of the 20th century."

He had so much energy, I really thought he could make it to 100.

Monk

Have you ever read any of the Monk spin-off novels? A lot of them take place after the show's finale and show how everyone's lives continue to change. They're quite good, and there's even one final showdown with Dale The Whale.

I've got a question for you guys, and it's entirely subjective so I'm just looking to see people's preferences.  This will be the fifth project Disney does that largely eschews the force and lightsabers (Rogue One, Solo, Resistance cartoon, The Mandalorian live action TV series, and now Cassian Andor's).  Do you want/like that?

I know there was a push from certain entertainment sites years ago to do projects without Jedi/Sith style trappings, and I agreed with the idea at the time.  I kind of feel like we're going too far down that path now, though.  Thoughts?

I don't mind at all. Some of my favorite books in the old EU had very little to do with the Force (The Lando Calrissian Adventures, The Han Solo Trilogy), but I'm not sure if that's a good choice for a visual medium.

Morbius makes Spidey work hard for wins. No way Bats takes this.

I think a large part of it is, how is the stereotype character accepted by members of the group they are stereotyping?

For example, the Scottish love Groundskeeper Willie. Australia loves the episode "Bart Vs. Australia."

What do Indians, or Indian-Americans, think of Apu? I'm unsure.

That's the woman who wouldn't sign the gay couple's marriage certificate, right?

Yeah. The voters actually tossed her out. A pleasant surprise, coming from rural Kentucky.

That bitch Kim Davis is out.

Largely unimportant but deeply satisfying.

^^^yeah, and, in Byrne’s defense? The Inhumans ARE assholes. A bunch of elitist snobs.
 Its not just me saying it, i’ve read several articles across the net that point that out.
Its one reason them ‘replacing’ the X Men never worked/wouldnt work. Theyre about polar opposites, really.

That's part of the reason I disliked the Inhumans series they had last year (besides it being just bad overall). The Inhumans came across as pretty unlikeable.

As far as I'm concerned, they've ALWAYS been unlikable.

No, the South deserves it. And I say that as someone who was born here and has lived here my whole life.

I lived out in the boondocks in the 80's.  We didn't have cable and satellite was damned expensive at the time.

Well, it wasn't an actual channel or anything, or even showed on the Disney Channel. Like, this special, it was aired on the local NBC affiliates.

Oh, then no, I don't remember seeing that.

Give it a watch, it's less than an hour long and a lot of fun.

It is from a Disney Halloween special from the late 70’s/early 80’s.  Johnathon Winters is a security guard who finds “Jack” in a crystal ball.  Jack is hiding out in the museum and decides to tell Winters ghost stories.  The special showed the Legend of Icabod Crane and other Disney toons and at the end, Jack trades places with Winters.  Turns out it was all a ruse and Halloween is the only time of the year Jack gets to go outside.

I remember that.  Do you remember DTV, Disney's version of MTV they did for a few specials, taking popular songs and matching them up with thematically appropriate cartoon clips? The Halloween-themed one, "Monster Hits," is a lot of fun.

Looks like they've fixed a lot of the complaints about Subspace for the new story mode.

Is it just me or is the poll incomplete?
