I saw the staff chat before X wiped it. I'm assuming that the big 47 will be during the *CENSORED*?

Good question. Let me start by asking you a few questions.
  • Are you a fan of the Superman mythos, from the Golden Age until now?
  • Do you enjoy a show that has lots of action and intrigue?
  • Do you like watching shows that have complex and nuanced characters who undergo a lot of development?
  • Do you enjoy shows that feature a racially diverse cast?
  • Do you like it when a show accurately depicts and deals with the consequences of its settings (farmers actually farming, students actually going to school, etc)?
  • Do you try to avoid shows that make you dumber just watching them?
If you answered yes to any of these, then for the love of all that is holy and good don't watch Smallville!


(Okay, okay, it's not that bad.)

Edit: Unless, of course, you want to watch Smallville so you can appreciate my fivers. Then you definitely should.

You know our philosophy of mocking because we love? Occasionally I wonder if Derek's heart is really in it.

I actually saw my first episode of Smallville the other day - as far as I can tell, about the only thing that's really good about it is just how mockable it is.

Let's see, hmmm. No, yes, yes, sometimes, yes (for example, I only watched parts of the State of the Union address).

Still, the fivers are fun to read. And since there's no new Ardromeda or any fivers of Battlestar Galactica at all, It'll have to do.

We have an original BSG fiver and both a fiver and comic fiver of the '03 miniseries. In what sense do we have no BSG fivers at all?

I know that. But it also isn't, right? Mini-series and series are different things, right? Remember V?

And stop winking at me, I don't date people I meet online. Usually.

Ummm, I can't find the BSG fivers. The TV page won't load, and they aren't on the main page.
