Did I say "weekly"? Make that "weekly or better".

And if the Feedburner chicklet still isn't updating itself, it should actually read "51" today.

I see it finally updated today. That's a relief, considering it recently dipped as low as "14".

XantesFire from the comments thread for #166:

I think I was 8 when I found out the universe will die in a few billion years. I cried. I was morose for months til I realize according to the comics there are parallel worlds. So I had to figure out how to go to these newer universes when Universe-Prime died. I tried to get my parents to buy me a treadmill. But they didn't want to. All for the best. I don't think I would have been able to run fast enough anyway.

Fong's probably related to Khan.

Stan Lee created spider-man? I thought Ditko did.

Leaving Fong on the island may be the only smart thing Supergirl does in this story. If she had rescued him, he seems the type to follow her around trying to claim her while endangering himself. He would had been just another Chinese comedy relief sidekick.

They took away all her powers except super-convenience. That's why they all dropped their magic wands.

As a kid I missed the whole point of the X-Men. I thought they were hated because they were like the popular kids in school. They were the strongest, prettiest, cooler kids. They went into space, saw dinosaurs, had their own jet, and danger room. I stuck with the JLA, the science geeks. Sure they went into space, saw dinosaurs and had their own jets, but they did it as geeks.

Helen Slater was okay in The Legend of Billie Jean.

They should have used Kitty Pryde in the X-men movies.

I think Super-fe-mail is a play on Superman's letter columns, Super-mail and/or Super-mailbag.

Have you not read any Marshal Law?

Hmmm...Courtney may have killed Khan, but maybe I can get Fong on the show...

Stan Lee just stole all the credit for Kirby and Ditko's Marvel creations.

After all, DC already had a Chinese comedy relief sidekick with Blackhawk's Chop-Chop.

I always preferred the non-"big seven" members of the JLA like Zatanna...and "cleavage window" Power Girl over in Justice League Europe.

Didn't Kitty Pryde have a cameo in that one X-Men movie sequel?

I think Kingdom of the Blind is the only Marshall Law comic I've ever read. And I just read that yesterday. Turns out I actually read it years ago, but forgot all about it.

"Man, do I have nostalgic stories that relates to fucking everything."
(Double-take) (Confusion) (Excitement) (hope) (calming down) (reexamination) (conclusion: word is being used as an adjective not a verb) (let down)

The Brady's encourages celibacy and birth control? Made me wish I had step sisters. I kept hoping for that one day Greg would gather all the other kids together in his room and reminds them that the boys weren't actually blood-related to the girls on a very special episode. Never hit on their step-sisters? It's like an astronaut finding a genie in a bottle and never using her. (RIP)

Not waking up early on Saturday? (Old timer story) We had to get up early to watch the cartoons on TV, "live" or wait 3 months for the rerun or never see it again. Then around noon would go to a store with a few arcade games or the mall for the Arcade. Try to get there before the lines got too long and hope an expert wouldn't show up and hog the machine you wanted for a few hours.

Marcia got hit on the nose.

Cooking mishaps? Seems illogical. Carol was teaching her girls to be good little homemaker. They knew how to cook.

"If you train your body to eat a certain way you can't untrain it"? But then how did you train it in the first place?

Coming from a family of 4 kids, one TV, no computers available yet, an Atari game system - Yes we would fight almost every day about what to watch or if we were playing Atari.
"It's a rerun."
"You always get to watch what you want."
"It's a brand new show."
"I was here first."
"You went to the bathroom and lost your 'here first' place."
"That's boring, change it."
"My show is on later because the football game went into over time."
"Star Trek is on!"
"I need Atari practice."
"It's Filmation Tom & Jerry, change it! Change it!"
"Rain delay. Let's watch my show."
"The dog likes this show too so she gets a vote too."
...and a dog.

Yeah Kitty was in the movies, but I meant they should have used Kitty instead of Rogue as the runaway and semi-main character.

When I saw that "RIP", I was afraid it was Barbara Eden who died, but fortunately it only turned out to have been the guy who played JR Ewing.

At least back in the '70s, cartoons were worth getting up early for.

I could have sworn it was Jan who got hit in the nose, but apparently not.

Was Filmation Tom & Jerry the version where they were actually friends? Talk about missing the whole point of the story.

I really wish you would edit the show, like my apple-eating-intro was no intro at all. We'd probably have fewer parts to episodes too. But that's just how I'd do it, make it more polished.

I do try to edit out some things, like all my gasping for air between sentences for example.

I think they were a few episodes where they were friends but I haven't seen them since they originally aired and only 2 or 3 episodes. I don't mind if they are friends sometimes as long as it seems plausible. What bothered me was the subpar animation, the winky wanky background music, Droopy talks too much, out of character voices, jokes so lame a 9 year old knew they were lame. Who was making this crap? An old concentration camp jew?
Good thing there was Superfriends and Godzilla to fall back on.

Edit, sschmit. Just leave as is. Course I may regret that, one day.

Edit, shmedit? You were the one who pointed out the shakiness of my voice, though.

Is that day here already?

My response to this is over in the comments thread for the current episode, #168.
