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.

Bill Cable just raped my childhood.

In addition, 3D penetration into homes hasn't hit a huge level yet so 3D is an attraction to moviegoers.  Even if all that up-charge goes to studios (which is obviously not the case) then additional butts in seats equals more over-priced concessions.

I agree 100% Jesse.

I thought the 3D in TPM was pretty well done.  It is hit or miss though.  I saw Iron Man and Star Trek in 3D.  IM was not worth it, ST was pretty good.

ETA: 3D is hugely profitable for theaters and studios.  It isn't going anywhere.

Always a good series against Boston who always have a great team.  You guys were always fighting for a top spot in the East too Jesse, so I think it's going to be a tough series.
Only the homerest of homers around here is thinking the Bruins will have any kind of cakewalk with the Pens.  Boston is definitely the underdog in this series, but not so much an underdog that they couldn't pull it off.  Could be very exciting.

AotC is my least favorite SW film.  That said, I would have liked to have seen this.  I wanted to put together a set of those LE 3D glasses.

This will be stillborn at $30.  $20 would be bitter enough to swallow.

Hasbro should crank these out so ANYONE that wants one can get it.  A little goodwill here may pay dividends with collectors (who they seem to be aiming this line at) down the road.  I want one of these things, even at that absurd price, but I live on the east coast so there is no chance of me getting anywhere near SDCC.  Do the right thing, Hasbro, and keep making these until they sit.  Hell do online pre-orders.

I have often thought that Vader changes after he encounters Luke.  He does not kill anyone after that, until he kills Palpatine.   I think that Luke reminds him of his humanity, and it is Luke's sacrifice that allows him to throw off the yoke of the dark side once and for all.

Interesting.  I do have several SFBC editions that my brother got me.  I will definitely check those out.
