re: Luke Cage is getting great reviews - starts streaming tomorrow, Sept 30 - Methuselah
[quote]quote:socially conscious narrative I hope this isn't the bad sign I believe it to be.[/quote] Might not be your cup of tea. If its like the early (and probably the later too) comic book storylines it dealt with black villains as well as a black heroes to a large extent. But I doubt it...

re: Gay super hero files: Wonder Woman is "canonically queer" - Methuselah
[quote]Also has strong themes of Bondage and Submission. [/quote] This. I don't know about being gay but I think her early stuff definitely had a subtext of bondage. With her unbreakable golden lasso and all. I think I've read that the guy who came up with the character also invented the lie...

Not many things Coach O could do (in the short term) to lose the fanbase - Methuselah
There are not many such things I think. Which is as it ought to be. Everyone loves a fresh start. And Lord knows we needed one. Some things I could think of: - Install purple turf in Tiger Stadium. - Make a permanent change to the home unis. - Announce there would be no future Mikes. ...

re: Been watching early Stark Trek TOS and it was kind of wild and woolly - Methuselah
It was a different time and mindset in television then I think. Not much in the way of serialized offerings back then - procedural or episodic was the way to go. Likewise I think star vehicle shows were much more in vogue than ensemble shows. I think TNG kind of moved a little more to at least s...

re: Been watching early Stark Trek TOS and it was kind of wild and woolly - Methuselah
One of the fascinating things from these early episodes is you can actually pick up on the tension between the actors in the amount of focus, attention, etc. they were getting. I've always kind of vaguely heard of the "feuds" between Shatner and different co-stars like Nimoy, Takei and Doohan. I...

re: Been watching early Stark Trek TOS and it was kind of wild and woolly - Methuselah
Interesting points. I still think the lady staying on the planet to live a fantasy life with those zoo keeping aliens was strange. (I do remember Pike going back later - which I thought at the time was a way to use the pilot footage). I wouldn't have trusted those particular aliens to have su...

Been watching early Stark Trek TOS and it was kind of wild and woolly - Methuselah
In the pilot (with Capt. Pike), the lady who had been on the planet pretty much just decided to stay on the planet with the aliens who had been "punishing" her off and on for years because, in effect, she was too ugly to be accepted on earth and wanted to live a fantasy. And everybody was like, yea...

re: Coach O entrance on Saturday - Methuselah
[quote]I have grown a little tired of Les "holding them back". It was designed to show that his team was so ready for combat he had to hold them back so they wouldn't prematurely run onto the field and slaughter their adversary. In 2011 it meant something. Since then, not so much. [/quote] It wa...

re: Saban on Miles' firing - Methuselah
I think Coaches at that level probably have a lot more empathy for fellow coaches than they do for the average fan or even for boosters. There has to be a bit of a "there but for the grace of God, go I" feeling for these coaches. Heck, Saban has caught heat from time to time for little hitches...

re: Lots of sunshine being pumped - Methuselah
It's kind of like we're people who've been fed nothing but bread and water for years. Not only was it very boring, we just weren't getting complete nutrition. Now we're gonna get a meal from a restaurant which, while it has had a bit of a mixed record over the years at least is something differe...

re: Orgeron inviting former players to join LSU in walk down Victory Hill - Methuselah
I'm sure there's a provisio about former players who would be on the staffs of other programs for said practice. Otherwise, every SEC West school and everyone else on our schedule will stick an ex-LSU player on their staff, even if it is just something like "administrative waterboy" or somethin...
