Yeah, at least there’s no Steampunk Cowboy Deadshot on this show, and John Barrowman will be coming by. Might be better than watching Russell Swan and his tribe implode every week on Survivor: Philippines. Or if you have The Hub, you can see Lisa Wed . . . Wec . . . Blair Warner past and present by flipping between The Facts of Life and Survivor.

Of course Arrow isn’t very good. It’s based on Green Arrow. That’s like making a new X-Men show and trying to hang it on Maggott.

I have hopes and fears for the new Walking Dead, mostly centred around Andrea. Who finished last season as a complete and total badass, and will probably now be defanged in order to let Michonne shine.

Funny thing about The Walking Dead. Me and the wife, in anticipation of the new season, watch the first and second seasons in one weekend. As we were discussing about the show, one theory among all others came to the forefront in blinding detail….

Lori is the TRUE villian of the show. We figure that most if not all of the bad events that happened to the group either was caused by, directly resulted by, or revolt in some way around her. And for most of the bad events, she doesn’t even care except for her needs (that includes her son being in danger). I have examples, but I am too tired and need sleep. Feel free to go ahead and demolish this theory below.

Green Arrow does not suck as a character. At all. The problem is that he really should just be an American Robin Hood, the same way Booster Goild is an American Doctor Who.

Which means GA needs Arrow Cars, Arrow Planes, and to be a ridiculous contradiction between ‘give the money to the people’ and ‘I like ridiculous machines and super arrows.’

Green Arrow needs to be a cranky old guy with a goatee who is obsessed with chili and not a young Tony Stark wannabe with sunglasses instead of a mask.

Cranky, chili-obsessed, Black Canary co-habitating Green Arrow was awesome. Attempts to update him usually suck and blow at the same time.

Booster Goild is an American Doctor Who.

That’s either genius or crazy, I’m not sure which.

That’s how I’d write him, anyway. :)

So I think the obvious question is…

Arrow vs. The Cape: who would suck harder?

Heroes, obviously. (I like the show, but… yeah!)

I’ll watch TWD, but I have to say this: near the end of last season, I started rooting for the Walkers. So much dumbness on the living, I swear.

Man, MGK. You’ve really started to despise Romney recently. I don’t remember you hating McCain or even Bush this much. Was it the 47% comment? Do people just not hate him as much as they should in your opinion? I’m sensing the vitriol that usually you only save for bad Canadian politicians.

Oh man, I read “Proposed spinoff series for B’wana Beast” and thought you were about to do a pitch for a B’wana Beast story. Now I’m all disappointed.
I don’t know about making Green Arrow a cranky old dude instead of a Tony Stark ripoff though, if I were ever to pitch a Green Arrow show I’d say “He’s Robert Downey Jr’s Occupy Wall Street Batman” then I’d make it rain. I think a young Green Arrow can work, but I do agree that he’s much more interesting as a guy who isn’t rich.
Additionally, the fact that some much of the promotional material features “Arrow” glowering at us with his shirt off, I don’t have great faith that the show will be anything more terrible.
As for Booster Gold as the American Doctor Who, I’d read the hell out of, and relish the fact that Skids removes the need for some slackjawed urchin to tag along with the main character as a target of exposition.
Whatever happened to that Booster Gold showe we kept hearing about anyway? I remember everyone was cautiously optimistic for it.

Still working on a Pilot, I think.

The problem they’re probably facing is that Booster Gold works best as a guy fixing the timeline of the DC universe in the background… but to do that, they need the license and approval to use ALL the DC characters. So one week he’s in Atlantis fighting Atlanteans with Poseidon’s Trident, the next he’s teaming up with Year One Batman against Despero!

As a total aside, the Booster Gold time travel ideas are the primary reason I utterly loathe the DC Reboot.

Or have they actually let Time Travel Booster Gold out of the cage in the nu52?

Mala – in JLI 12, Booster is visited by Future Booster who tells him that he has to stop Wonder Woman and Superman from fucking. Then he disappears from time. Booster sees WW/Superman making out on TV and has a ‘WHAT THE FUCK’ moment. Then he disappears, pulled into the timestream.

So it seems his story is returning and yelling ‘STOP TRYING TO FUCK’ at WW/Supes, while everyone holds him back.

They also mention Rip Hunter…

I would definitely read “Booster Gold: Time Travelling Cockblocker”

“So it seems his story is returning and yelling ‘STOP TRYING TO FUCK’ at WW/Supes, while everyone holds him back.”

I haven’t read a single Nu52 comic yet, but if they reintroduce Booster Gold as the guy who has to do things like this I would change that tout suite.

Same with the “Booster Gold is the DC version of Doctor Who”. That’s just crazy enough to be a genius idea.

Way back when I had the brilliant idea of Booster Gold leading a team of Hypertime-Monitoring DC cast-offs (Harbinger, Pariah, Chunk, an H-Dial Wielding Duela Dent, the long-forgotten Speedy of Earth-2, and several other characters that have been well and truly nuked by the Nu52), I always planed on them travelling through Hypertime via one of the Time Trust’s old Time Machines, converted into a sort of hypertime-travelling elevator. I mention all this, only because this thread has made me realize that I was subconsciously ripping off Doctor Who by making the hypertime-elevator “bigger on the inside” like the TARDIS. Damn and blast.

Finally watching Arrow, as it’s airing in the UK. I’m a big-time GA fan, and this is just AWFUL.

Even with whisky!
