The more of this show I watch, the more I think it should be retitled "PENGUIN." The subplot with Cobblepot (or, as his mother corrected, the family name "Kapelput") is gripping enough and it holds my attention solidly. I'd watch it with pleasure if it focused solely on the struggles and battles of those who would… » 9/30/14 7:53pm Yesterday 7:53pm

This would be cool, but I'd hope for physical marionette work, as with his traditional series. While the "New Captain Scarlet" looked great, and had substance, the CGI work didn't set it apart from any other CGI series. And gods forbid that Jamie would EVER go back to the awful puppetry of Terrahawks (and the cheap… » 9/30/14 5:03pm Yesterday 5:03pm

Well, there's always a legendary villain, too. Lex would be dead if a real-life Superman, who realized Earth's laws couldn't really apply to him (who could stop him?) just did a heat-vision lobotomy on him from a distance.

I used to have one of those Cap'n Crunch bo'sun whistles. But you know, even a real bo'sun whistle works- one time I was demonstrating my whistle to somebody I was talking to over the phone- I blew into it, and at the first pitch the phone suddenly disconnected. » 9/29/14 11:57am Monday 11:57am

That looks to be almost as much fun as "No Brakes Valet" on the Ouya- an 8-bit style game reminiscent of an old Intellivision or Atari game where cars whip into a parking lot and you have to park them in spaces, mostly by steering or braking once- but the momentum they have when they race in is all you get. And other… » 9/26/14 1:09pm Friday 1:09pm
