Recently I've become addicted to the band Rush. In particular I really love their song Faithless which has become my new favorite song. I feel like I can really relate to the song a lot at this point in my life, especially the lyrics in the chorus and they're just a really awesome band in general. O...

I was thinking more of this when I saw the thread updated, and I was thinking that if Fiore was only jealous of Usagi being friends with Mamoru and wasn't in love with him, why did Fiore specifically single out Usagi? Mamoru was also friends with the other Inners and they were all there when Fiore r...

If DiC dubbed FMA, all the English names would be changed to other English names just because DiC has to change names. Ed would be called Bob and Al would be Rob, Winry would be Minny, Pinako would be Pamala, Izumi is now Elane, Roy would be Jordan, Riza would be Lisa, and Rose would be Ruth. Any vi...

If they make a movie out of this book [spoiler] they got some massive catching up to do since the movie of the golden compass essentially cut the ending out. The part where Lyra's father betrays and "kills" the boy, and where Lyra crosses into another world. I dont know why they cut that out of the...

However I have to dissagree with the earlier opinion of the Charlie and the Chocolate factory. The original with Gene Wilder was radically different from the books. They even changed the name to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. In the newer version the Oompa Loompa songs are actually from the...

I personally have always prefered the more sympathetic multi-layered villains as opposed to the more typical I R ebil villains who want to destroy the world simply for being evil. For one reason I find those types of villains to be boring and cliched and I also don't think the real world is always d...

The asteroid was also Fiore's spaceship, so maybe he had some sort of invisible oxygen shield with his alien technology covering it and that's how they could breathe. Another thing I noticed is that why is it that the public fully acknowledges the Sailor Soldiers' existence but there is no sort of s...

One cliche I can't stand is how every episode of Medium begins with the main character involved in some bizarre situation but then it always turns out to be a dream. Can't they do something more original to start the episode off with? It just annoys me because my parents always act shocked by it eve...

Lack Of Fantasy Shows On U.S. TV

Why are there so many sci-f shows on American TV but there's so few fantasy series on TV? Even mainstream shows lately have been incorportating supernatural sci-fi elements into otherwise ordinary plots like Ghost Whispherer and Medium, but you rarely see any fantasy shows on TV. The only ones I can...

Any episode of Batman TAS that had the Scarecrow in it or where the Joker used his laughing gas used to scare the crap out of me as a kid.

I was a little confused by it. Does anyone know where it may have come from? It's clips from the classic finale, but the voice overs for Usagi are clearly done by Mistuishi Kotono, rather than Araki Kae. According to a friend of mine, the audio comes from an audio cassette release of the season fin...

And the Wizard of Oz didn't do that as well? I'm fairly interested. Sure the "Ordinary girl get sent to a new world" plot is cliche, but honestly, what ISN'T a cliche these days.
