A few months ago I went in when they had some sandwich (roast beef, I think) on sale. Being vegetarian, I asked them to hold the meat. They refused. They said that would make it a "Veggie" and they would charge me full price if they did so. What kind of morons charge extra for withholding toppings? I walked out. My friends and family have had similar experiences there. No wonder the franchise is doing so poorly. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 1, 2011, 2:22 pm

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
I've been marathoning G.I. Joe recently and thought I should leave my impressions of it. I know many fans dislike the second season due to Serpentor and Sgt. Slaughter. But there were some great new characters (like Hawk finally making his animated debut) and episodes (Sink the Montana). Even Serpentor got a great origin story (made from DNA of history's greatest tyrants). I wonder if Serpentor would have been received more warmly if he didn't have such a ridiculous costume and name that seemed like a He-Man reject. I think I'd have to agree with Dr. Sarcastor that The Movie was probably the boning point. The show was already straining credibility and that Cobra-La crap was just too much. Cobra Commander's ridiculous origin from The Movie of being a mutated nobleman-scientist of an ancient race of lizard-men from the Himalayas made his comic book origin of being a disgruntled used-car salesman look believable. The less said about the post-Movie episodes done by DiC, the better. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 1, 2011, 2:32 am

Weird vintage underground video going around of Babs in a dominatrix outfit whipping Indiana Jones and saying she "feels like a faggot". Guest appearances by Carrie Fisher and Irvin Kershner. George Lucas is having these vids taken down, so watch them while you can. http://origin.avclub.com/articles/watch-barbra-streisand-whip-indiana-jones,61465/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2011, 2:22 am

Star Wars - Movie Series
What they did to Ben's "Krayt Dragon" call bugged me worse. They've got this new young sound guy that apparently put his own voice into all six films, including that scene. It is a little weird that this "NO" is some people's breaking point. Greedo Shoots First, Hayden Christensen in Return of the Jedi-- these things were much worse. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 2, 2011, 2:40 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
So yeah, George is adding Vader screaming "NOOOOOO!!!" to the upcoming Return of the Jedi Blu-ray. Because so many people liked that in Revenge of the Sith. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 1, 2011, 8:16 pm

Image Comics - Random Topics
Don't get me wrong, I'm not condemning all indie comics. My favorite comic book ever, Usagi Yojimbo, is independent and all done pretty much entirely by one guy since the mid 1980s. But the Image guys (with the Savage Dragon guy being the obvious exception) are all lazy hacks with no artistic integrity that couldn't cut it on their own. I loved that article by the way and would love to see an update to it. I've heard they're not the No. 3 comic publisher anymore. I think when it comes to the superhero books, the corporate-owned format works best. All those classic superhero crossovers and superhero teams like the Justice League and The Avengers could never have happened under the creator-owned rules. You'd have to get permission from each character's creator and pay them something each time a character appears. You wouldn't be able to afford to use the whole team! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 1, 2011, 5:54 pm

Image Comics - Random Topics
I was a naive high school student when Image was formed. I believed all the hype about creators' rights and that editors were holding back these great artists from telling great stories. Then these "rebels" go start their own company and make the dumbest, most unoriginal, over-commercialized crap comics in history. All they've got to show for it after all these years is... Spawn... and The Walking Dead has a TV show. These artists were only good when they had real writers and editors telling them what to do and couldn't handle it on their own. I hate to say it, but comics were better when the characters were corporate owned. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 30, 2011, 6:55 pm

Betty White - Celebrities
These kind of roles may be the only kind of starring roles women of their age are offered. Hollywood has been having elderly characters spew "hip" dialogue for quite a while now. "I'm gonna haul ass to Lollapalooza!" - The Simpsons -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 29, 2011, 2:21 pm

Burger King - Random Topics
I vaguely remember the Who is Herb ads, and then seeing that he had been revealed in a human interest story on the news. I was kind of disappointed that after all the build-up, he just looked like a stereotypical nerd. I don't remember any ads with him in them. My memories of the original Burger King are even vaguer, though I remember him playing basketball once and having a magic ring. They really should bring that guy back. It could be hilarious detailing what a King of Burgers actually does. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 24, 2011, 3:03 pm

G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 - TV Shows
"The series also features General Hawk's son Scott and his robot dog Spud." They should have just gone all out and named the dog T-Bob. The show looked nice, but it was all ruined by lousy 4Kids dubbing. The resulting show was unintelligible. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2011, 4:20 pm

Eddie Murphy - Celebrities
This is another one of those guys that I just don't get. I think he boned the fish before I was old enough to see his movies. Apparently he was really good on Saturday Night Live, but that was during the "lost years" that they never rerun. All I see now is a loudmouth with a huge ego. And unfortunately, I have heard his music, including the Whatzupwitu duet with Wacko Jacko. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 10:20 pm

That '80s Show - TV Shows
Someone on JTS once made the keen observation that That 70's Show was made by people that loved the 1970s and That 80's Show was made by people that hated the 1980s. I totally agree. Also the characters on That 70s Show felt like real people (at least in the early seasons), whereas That 80's show's characters were just walking, talking '80s cliches. And if you haven't seen it already, check out That 80's Show creator Mark Brazill's epic flamewar with Judd Apatow. Brazill comes off like the scum he is and makes freakin' Judd Apatow look dignified. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 12:53 pm

Normal, Ohio - TV Shows
My problem with this show is the same I have with Ross's ex-wife on Friends. IIRC, this show was about a formerly married father that has recently come out of the closet. We see that his ex-wife and kids are alternately angry and messed up by it. His actions come off as extremely self-centered to me. It was played as if Goodman just decides he's gay one day and ditches his family. And this is supposed to be a comedy. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 10:35 am
