Modern SNL has its critics, and now more people are skeptical due to a change in head writer. I'm on board with it, though. The style of humor they've picked up over the last few years is more in line with my own. Case in point, the linked video. This kills me every time I watch it.

Had high hopes for Agents of SHIELD after seeing The Winter Soldier over the weekend. Tonight's episode did not fail to impress. Can't wait to see future developments and find out why(?!).

+Kaz McNellie aw right on. I'll have to give it another go as soon as I'm in the mood to binge watch something that isn't Tabletop related. Lol

I heard rumors about Armie Hammer as Batman in some film, but I didn't realize that he would have been just one of many faces introduced in a Justice League movie. I'm disappointed that this didn't come to pass, especially since this would have definitely beaten Marvel to the punch.

Work on this film started in 2007, which is odd considering the fact that Warner Bros. was still doing Batman films at the time. Following up The Dark Knight with this might have been confusing audiences expecting more of Christian Bale's Batman. Too bad what they got instead was Dark Knight Rises.

I've never been a big fan of Batman, so that's one strike against the trilogy right there. (Meanwhile, I love Batman the Animated Series.) I just found them boring and mostly uninteresting. Plus Batman letting Ras Al Ghul die made me feel like he was less of a hero.

Call me cynical, but I can't help but feel like this #Tabletopday  was an advertisement for season 3 of TableTop, with hands extended. "Now that we've got your attention, we want money for this venture." Maybe I'd be less cynical if they were a bit more transparent about why they want to be more independent and not spend Google's money.

Well, How I Met Your Mother came to end. The word disappointed doesn't quite carry the necessary weight. The thing is, I liked just about everything in the finale up until the final few minutes. (Well, and the divorce was a frustrating element to add in.) It makes sense to a certain degree, given what the show has had to work with for the previous 8 years, but it just stinks. I think I would have preferred an ending more like Roseanne's.

The divorce was a bit disappointing due to the majority of the final season focused on the wedding, just to have the final episode nullify and make the whole season pretty much useless.

As for the ending it was really just a way to give the fans what they'd wanted from the start. Maybe not the best way to go about it but there aren't many ways to make that happen.

Apparently Chris Evans turned down a 9 picture deal with Marvel/Disney, but he was convinced (after a time) to come on board for 6 movies. Meanwhile, Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky, has a 9 picture deal. I guess the third Avengers movie will see the passing of the shield. I'm excited that the films will probably do what I thought the comics should have done: Keep Captain America dead.

Note: I like Captain America. The first film actually convinced me that there was more to the character than I had previously seen in the comics. Still, death has more meaning when characters stay dead.

I was thinking that, but I was also thinking that Thanos and the Gauntlet could setup a great heroic sacrifice for Cap, too.

I think I should start using this or a variation of it when talking about movies online. (Although it would be smarter to just not talk to people online about things...)

I would argue the third LoTR book was better and maybe the second one as well.

This is probably one of the best videos I've come across recently. While reading Darth Vader's lines in Pooh's voice is funny, I literally cheered when he used Darkwing Duck's voice for an officer. Let's get dangerous!

Oh, bother. Jim Cummings, the voice of Winnie the Pooh, reads Darth Vader's lines & it is fantastic.

I appreciate the transparency. Now the fundraising makes a lot more sense to me. Geek & Sundry likely disagree with me, but I think they should have started off by saying they're not getting any additional Google money, not that they want to do things differently.

I don't normally read Jezebel, but I was linked to this article. Honey Maid is a company that I respect so much more now.
Honey Maid released a glorious response to homophobic idiots who didn't like the snack company's ads depicting gay couples with their children.
