Precisely how many licks does it take to get to the tootsieroll center of a tootsie pop?

If you want to see some bitter fans of the original series, read the boards at cylon.org. Damn, these people only watch the show so they can bitch about it. One guy even says it outright.
Its sort of been hinted at so far that Walt has something special about him, and maybe we'll start to see more of what that is.
Yeah it's been more than hinted. His mom's new boyfriend outright wanted Michael to take custody of him because "weird things happen when he's around." He was reading a book about birds when all of the sudden one came screaming into the window and broke it's neck. He's a freaky little kid.
Re: New Force,
It looks bad, but it's not really that bad. Rick and the gang over there have made a conscious decision to hold off on a lot of the activity on full cases this year. Being a smaller retailer, they realized that many of these figures would hit the big boys (TRU/Target/etc) before them, so they've held off.
They've said that in a movie year, it's hard for them to compete with the big boys because retail get product faster. NewForce have put up a few of the "collector interest things" - Evolutions, BH 7-pack, Wedge, Clone Variant cases, etc. They have even ordered a few things for me when I sent an e-mail, even though they weren't listed on the site.
They do a pretty good business with their retail stuff and then there is the "other" on-line stuff they sell - DCD, Diamond, Star Trek, etc. I don't think they are in any financial trouble or anything, just decided to play it low key because of the movie year and the fact that orders go way down when stuff is rampantly available at retail.
