    They just announced that season two is going to happen!!!!! 8 episodes and Anthony Mackie will be taking over as Takeshi. Be interested to see how he does with such a serious role since he always seems to be more comic relief in most of the films I have seen him in (granted they have all been marvel films)

    Wow, so when I began this thread I knew there would be some debate but didn't expect this much! Bringing it back to a more movie direction, how do folks think it will affect GoG 3? Gunn was right in the middle of writing the script for the next movie so does Disney commandeer it and claim it as work product, then hand it to another writer? Or do they just say to hell with it and hire someone to write a whole new script (with the proviso that they have to include Adam Warlock since that was teased in the 2nd film)?

    So much of what made the first two films successful is Gunn himself. All the music, all the humor, the crafting of a family out of this random group of a-holes, all that came from Gunn. Plus his brother does the mocap for Rocket; is he gonna stay on? Gunn was also supposed to be the "showrunner" for all Marvel's space/cosmic stuff, of which there is supposed to be a lot in the next few years. I'm not saying they should or shouldn't have fired him; I'm pretty conflicted about it but it's pretty clear to me that the end product (GOTG3) will suffer for it. 
    Sadly I think it will suffer and I would have to think his brother will bail, unless Gunn tells him to stay on for the good of the movie. He should do a mea culpa again for the tweets, promise to never get on Twitter again and beg disney to let him come back OR he lets the film crash and burn, at which point Disney will be begging him to come back. Either way, sucks for us :(

    I'm all for it, personally. I'm not for barriers between the candidates and the populous. Also, I think they should rotate the order of the primaries. I think the fact that so many states get perpetually screwed out of the process because it's already mostly settled by the time it gets to them is really stupid and unfair. Though, I guess if we went to a more "popular vote" type of system it would minimize that on its own. I'm at work and can't really read the article now. Is that the gist of the plan?
    being the most populous (and important) state i would think California would go first

  • Favorite Pilot Episode

    It's from a looooong time ago, but the pilot for Space: Above and Beyond is great, and the pilot for Battlestar Galactica (new one, not the old one)
