They actually changed the opening two weeks ago when there was a new episode. I am so glad the show got picked up for 2 more years. It has been a long time since it has been as good as it used to be but it still is a great show.

Again, I don't think they can go "too far" by making one book that is a horror novel. I think it will be interesting if it is a one time thing.

I don't get Terminator. Why even air these episodes? They are worthless.

Vikings close to deal for QB Rosenfels

I guess Jackson isn't that good, but is this that much of a step up?  Rosenfals played ok in those games, but not really stellar.  I guess I'm asking if this will make a difference? 

Any word yet on who/when the Vikings get the home opener? 

I'm not saying that Rosenfel is the best QB ever, but he actually can throw a ball and with the Vikings running game and defense that is what they need. They weren't going to get a super star, but the fact they are admitting T Jack isn't their future makes me so happy.

Didn't the article say out in time for Christmas?  Spring is a tad early, but I'm not complaining.

I am complaining. I wanted time to save up for this thing. If it comes out in spring I'll just skip it most likely. Which probably is a good thing I guess. So maybe I will recant my complaint.

And at some point the Fonz jumps a shark with his speeder bike.   ::)

I don't think you can "jump the shark" in a book that isn't even in a series. If this was a story in a 10 book series or certainly from one of the movies maybe the Fonz could have shown up (and I'm still not sold on that).

Meteorologist = The only job that you can be wrong 90% of the time and still keep your job.

They were having a really hilarious conversation about that one morning on "Mike and Mike in the Morning" on ESPN.

I agree with Greg. There is way too much difference from item to item in this line for them to all be the same price.

Anybody seen the second wave of Clone Wars 2-Packs (Luminara et al.) yet?

My friend and I saw these, I bought the Padme/Jar Jar, he bought the rest at least 3 months ago at a Target and I've never seen them again or heard anyone else say they have since so I don't know what that was all about.

I could deal with that!!!

I'll try not to think about the fact that the Vikings could have made the exact same trade last offseason and what that could have meant this last season. :-\

Anyone else find it a bit weird that it appeared John was hitting on the chick at the funeral considering his girlfriend tried to kill herself not that long ago.

It was odd. I hope that they end the story with Reily and Dereks chick soon. They both just bother me.

The funeral thing was odd.

I don't mind Reily but I can't stand Derek's chick. And as far as their stories ending soon, when the gets cancelled in a couple of months ALL the stories will be gone.

It's great that he won.  But let's be honest, if he were alive, he probably wouldn't have won this.  No matter how good, you don't win individual awards for comic book or scifi/fantasy movies (exception; Don Ameche for Cocoon).


I'm not sure you are right here. I was pretty sure that when I finally saw the movie that Heath's performance would not be as good as the hype. I was wrong. He was that good and I think he still may have gotten that recognition alive or not.

I am now 95% sure some combo of the writers/producers/FOX want this show cancelled after last night's episode.

I'm not going to say that not buying at $9+ a piece on principle doesn't have validity, but I get way too much enjoyment out of the collecting to stop for that reason. I lose out more on my happiness by not buying for principle than what I would gain in my principles if I didn't buy.

I think this is such a hard question to answer. I want to say I will cut down on what I buy due to price increase, but that's a lot easier to say than to due when the product is in your hands. Even if everyone doesn't keep buying everything, I think enough people will be buying stuff from each line that its hard to see the "TOO MUCH" threshold being reached soon to me. I think the prices coming down and quantity we see in ie a BP going back up will coincide with the economy as opposed to something we as collectors do ourselves.

I just reread what I typed and I don't think I made any sense.
