    Titans [DC Universe]

    Akiva Goldsman used up all the lightbulbs on the 1997 Batmobile and now they won't let him have them anymore.

    Ok, the viral ad for this during the second half hour of The Bachelor was hilarious!

    S04.E12: Menagerie (2019.02.17)

    Maybe he'll be killed by KGBeast who will be working for Lex. Didn't someone say, "I thought the Sons of Liberty were over?" Because that was the most meta comment ever.

    The DC Extended Universe: To Thanagar and Beyond!

    I've thought a lot about this comment, and I think it may lead back to why, perhaps, it took 30 years to make the movie (and I'm now tempted to make a Watchmen film thread). It's a book with no clear protagonist; we see the narrative unfold through Rorschach's eyes, but he's nuts and the other heroes are variously hapless, so alienated they can't function, or just evil. The flashback issues break up the core narrative in the comics, but you can't do that in a movie (and I think Snyder did as well with them as anyone could). So I think that, if you're trying to tell the essential story from the book (with a modified ending because even DC is doing a whole series based on the idea that the original ending doesn't work), you have to focus on Rorschach because that's the story the book tells. And I think it's also the case that WB gave Snyder the keys to MoS because, at the end of the day, he was the one who got Watchmen made.

    James Cameron has probably criticized the use of black and white in Citizen Kane as overly pretentious.

    For those who haven't seen it yet or didn't subscribe to DCU, DC has released the opening titles (real ones!)

    Beyond the Cape: Cast in Other Roles

    I'd actually like to see that (too bad my local ocean comes with sunrises, not sunsets). Melissa looks like a hilarious younger version of Vicki Lawrence's Mama.
  11. Everyone, We're watching a show where aliens can fly, turn invisible, shapeshift, ransack people's minds, and turn sunlight into invulnerable skin and laser eyes. Please accept that their science does not match our science and move on, for the good of humanity here and on Earth 38. Particularly as regards Nia, I'll direct you all to the GLAAD language guidelines (this site's preferred guide in this area) and ask you to remember that your words may have far more effect on your fellow posters than they ever will on Nia, Kara and Alex.
  12. Hi, As we've been told, the "Previously.TV" logo in the forums now brings us to the forum homepage, rather than the editorial homepage at www.previously.tv or just previously.tv. Fair enough, BUT when I changed "forums." to "www.", I was presented with a nasty security error, and once I clicked through that I got to the hosting site's "this site is misconfigured" page rather than the PTV homepage. It turns out that the Editorial home is running plain http, while the forums are running https, so you have to manually change that in the URL bar as well. I can see why you might want to do it that way, but I'd recommend restoring a working link to Editorial on the forums header if you want people to go there to read the editorial pieces and find podcasts.
