I don't know if there are any Discovery Channel fans here, but they have an incredible show this Sunday at 10 PM (Eastern): When Animals Strike. Now, I know that sounds like you're average Fox special, but anyone that's seen the preview of this show knows better than that. Each time I see that wolf ...

Comment regarding production: The whole was very well done, but I thought that the voice of The Designer was perfect. Bizarre for no reason, completely out of place, inhuman, seemingly significant, but how? That voice cemented the icky/creepy feeling of unrightness that defined the whole story for ...

I'm just hoping we also get the first Death-match podcast up soon, too. As far as the podcast, I felt the feature was extremely weird. Had the model OD'd at the end, and was either dead, or in the process of killing herself? The story was interesting, but sometimes unclear to me. I'm convinced that ...

Excellent Discussion thus far. One thing I've noticed is that everyone wants to pair up the fighters, but I don't think that's how it would go down. When I think about hypothetical death match scenarios I relate them to two incredible games: Smash Bros. and Risk. Involving yourself in a head-to-head...

I imagine it is very hard to pull the "Choose Your Own Adventure" thing in fiction- would probably work only in flash fiction because you can string the ambiguity along do far. Whoa. DC should be all over this. Possibly a post-MBDM 100-word weekly serial where the listeners choose the outcomes on t...

Baboon - owns the nastiest ass in the world. I wouldn't want to tangle with it for that reason alone. Dolphin - everything about these creatures is bad ass. They can take out sharks, plus when they can't find females, they wank off on other male dolphins. You know why? They just want to get theirs....

If you think about it, the Aquaman reference doesn't make this story any clearer at all really. To me, it actually makes things more vague. It's quite conceivable that someone injured and hallucinating, moments from death, might piece together just this sort-of makeshift delusion from well-known my...

This story mixed a lot of elements that stand out to me. First off, I've got to say that I appreciated the "Aquaman" references. Orin and Arthur, Arthur's dad being a lighthouse keeper, all explicitly referenced. As a huge DC comics fan, I always love it when I run into them in unexpected places. ja...

What you are suggesting here, Cakes, is the refinement and establishment of an entire DC moral framework, no less significant in its way than Hammurabi's Code. One day in distant posterity, your totem may be unearthed like Stonehenge, and DC scholars will be left to reconstruct its significance. Or...

I really liked the narration by Christina here. Got the bureaucratic, "I'm feeding you the bullshit my company told me" voice right on for this one. The story wasn't over or underwhelming for me, just right in the middle. But, I'm not one for vampires. They are at the bottom of the totem pole of sca...

Haha, that would be an awesome Drabble banner. Can someone do this up? It would also be awesome to have a Wiggly People drawing contest to see who can come up w/ the best Wiggly person. There's so much room for creativity there.

Holy hell. This story had a few laugh-out-loud moments for me. All of them, of course, resulted from Norm's production of this story. The aforementioned Banjo got me, as well as the obnoxious little boy saying "BETT'IR". I also really liked the inclusion of the music to give the Bachelor's story a l...

I think a Christmas special should be made about how Tom Baker saved DC! I hear there's a shortlist of washed-up actors lining up to be in the special: Bea Arthur, Belki from Perfect Strangers, Dave Coulier, The entire cast from Facts of Life, but rumor is Tom Arnold wants to play Norm Sherman.

Yes, sorry, I know. Many shows were left off the list. I should have known better than to leave Dexter off the poll, esp. in a sci-fi fan forum. BSG can be high comedy on most eps. The redeeming thing is I like to believe the directors/writers/producers create those moments intentionally. Take Rosli...

Uh... I don't think slasher films qualify as an educational resource for understanding the mentally handicapped.

most of the way through the story i thought it was a kid, obviously. then somewhere in the last quarter i started to think it was probably a mentally handicaped grownup. maybe in his 20's or something. which impression did you guys get?

Dr. Who was on the list along with "Other", but I guess there is a limit to the amount of options.

Dr. Who is getting a lot of love these days from the internet community, not a huge fan personally.
