Imagine if we get 6 or 7 games of that caliber?  Whew!

If you have ever dealt with alcoholism/drug dependence, then you'll know that it takes a LONG time for someone to regain the trust they squander away.  I just don't think that they could handle it in a realistic way in the forum of a mass-market summer blockbuster.  I don't think it has anything to do with offending anyone (although recovery experts would probably crap all over such a quick turnaround as you are explaining) but more with catering to the expectations of the audience they are aiming for.

I do agree that those PTSD scenes were a little weird and never really seemed to have a point in retrospect.  There was never really a moment where Tony overcame someone talking about NY and the events of The Avengers to save the day, unless I am just not remembering it.  Seemed a little tacked on, and changing it to the bottle would feel just as (or perhaps more) tacked on.

I think the reason that Stark's alcoholism is not a plot point is because there isn't a really good way to introduce this very real issue, and resolve is satisfactorily in the course of 2 1/2 hours.  Comics have the luxury of being able to deal with the ramifications over several months.  Stark's demons are a way to keep him out of the armor, to try something different.  The producers (and the audience) don't want a film where Tony isn't in the armor. 

There are plenty of OTHER movies about alcoholism.

The ninth episode of each of the seasons so far is the "Holy Sh!T!!" episode, and the finale is usually more subdued in comparison(Beheading, Blackwater, Red Wedding). My friends and I have decided to have an "Episode 9" party next season.

Did I hear correctly that Roose Bolton's bastard is also named Snow?  Are all bastards named Snow?

Sony's event was one death blow to XBone after another.  They won this one, hands down.

I'm pretty shocked that the B's took the series in 4.  That last 2 minutes of game 4 was awesome to watch.

What a gigantic blunder this is turning into.  Sony has a chance to wipe the floor with MS by just dumping these draconian ideas they are talking about.  Trouble is that I doubt Sony is smart enough to see anything but the small pile of cash that may be obscuring the mountain of cash behind it.

Harmony Gold is gonna sue!

That's not to say it's over - the B's have been known to take their foot off the gas and let teams back in it
Ain't that the truth. 

Wow.  My reaction was very similar to the first girl in that video.  Hand covering my mouth, and saying "no f***ing way..."  This show is amazing.  They did an astounding job building the tension through the whole episode.  When that door shut, and the Rains of Castamere started, I knew business was about to pick up.

Pete's on the money here.  Takei  and Alley played hardball.  The role was written as Saavik.  Pete is also right in saying that it is easy to explain away this plot hole, just like most every complaint that people are throwing at ST:ID.  Star Trek is not, contrary to what some think, high science fiction.

Well said.  I got out at the end of the RotS line when they were releasing those final waves of repaints, and they were near impossible to find here.  With that headache, and escalating pricing, I decided to get out.

I still buy figures here and there for my son, particularly ESB related stuff, and almost only when there is a deal to be had (for example, I bought a bunch when TRU had vintage down to $5 per).  I can only imagine how frustrating it is now to someone who wants to be complete.

I think acceptance of them helps...  Ignore the crap, enjoy the good.

My gf still laughs her ass off when Padme falls out of a fast moving vehicle in the sky onto a sand dune, and demurely rolls looking like a sleeping angel...  then boom, up and barking orders.


Lucas you tard.
EVERYTHING on Geonosis is pretty much the worst in all of SW (aside from Padme's costume).  The worst crime AotC commits is the bungling of the C-3PO humor.  Totally misses the mark.  By 5 million light years.  So f'n terrible.
