    What Justin Lin and Arnold should do is get ahold of Edward Furlong, get him to the gym to get back in shape and some muscle on him, and bring him back to play as John Connor. and screw christan bale. I love the guy and all but he is NO JOHN CONNOR…

  • tfg1mike

    agreed that he is no john connor.

  • TV’s Mr. Neil

    Three things.

    1. Superman II The Donner Cut should just be called Superman. I have to admit, I have a major bug up my ass about origin stories. I hate them. I think we all have a general idea of how Superman came to be. Just skip to the chase and tell a new story about the man of steel. That’s what Superman II was.

    2. About the soda thing, I think I agree with Blanchard about social media taking over everything. I hate how everything has to be connected. I don’t text chat. I just want to be left alone sometimes.

    However, what really bugs me about this is that the whole idea behind redeemable codes is that they exist for you to forget about them. You gift your friend a code for a soda, and then your friend forgets to get it. Free money for the soda companies.

    3. Michael Bay is a douche. Again, Blanchard’s right. Bay just wants to wank to the military, and that’s why I hate the Transformers movies, because Michael Bay can’t do a movie without marines and gasoline explosions.

    It’s interesting that they picked David Warner to voice Shockwave, because a lot of people believe that Corey Burton was doing a David Warner impersonation as Shockwave.

    Now… to listen to THIS week’s episode, so I can comment on that, too.

  • tfg1mike

    To my knowledge SHOCKWAVE’S VA has not been revealed yet. All I said was that was who I’d want to voice him.

  • TV’s Mr. Neil

    Oh…. One MOOOOOOORE thing…

    Although I am not much of an astronomy buff, I can say that this isn’t the end of the space race for us. Private companies are already working on and have tested successors to the shuttle. What’s happening is that it’s the end of GOVERNMENT-funded space travel. We’re still going to be in space.

    Things are going to be moving along a lot better than most people think.

    Okay, moving on…
