PizzaJedi81: somemoron: I thought that Conspiracy was a good arc for the first season. The Bord definitely replaced it what with the "They're coming!" bit, but I would have liked to see that arc continued, even if it was much later.I read somewhere that the Conspiracy and the Borg were originally supposed to be related, but they dropped that because...um...hey, look over there!\Also, they ruined the Borg when they gave them a Queen. Still entertaining, but not as terrifying as a mindless, soulless wave of cybernetic consumers.\\The Cybernetic Consumers(tm), On tour now!I dunno. It changed them from robo-zombies to robo-ants. COULD be as bad, but...::shrug::
DamnYankees: The West Wing - Sam loses. This is made pretty obvious. He leaves the White House knowing he will lose and presumably does. What more is there to say?
eddievercetti: Fringe - I forgot about the whole pattern thing. Maybe it was for the best though.
eddievercetti: Heroes - Hyping up the whole villains event the whole summer...only to kill them off three episodes in. Shocker the writers strike farked it up or so they say.Fringe - I forgot about the whole pattern thing. Maybe it was for the best though.
good_2_go: I always found it odd that Tony Soprano never tried to find Melfi's rapist.
Tatsuma: What were those skeletons below the waterfall?
NeoCortex42: The best part of the Conspiracy storyline was it was one of the best attempts by TNG to have an arc. The conspiracy was hinted at during several episodes prior to the end of the arc, and Remmick showed up often enough that it was pretty shocking what they did to him.
TheOther: 15. Foreman's near-death experience, House - the results confirm that his brain has been affected. How badly? We may never know, because it never really came up againDid I dream the subsequent episodes where Foreman's outlook and mental capacity are issues; where he asserts a 'Don't worry, be happy' and he'shiatting the books to relearn what has been lost? Was 13 in the shower the whole time?All lists suck in some manner, but dayuuum!
Outshined_One: Did we ever find out why Amy had never heard of the Daleks in Series 5 of New Who?
Stile4aly: I think the Shanti virus and Peter's girlfriend being stuck in the future were bigger dropped plots than the villains issue. The writers's strike really screwed Heroes over.
Digitalstrange: Writer doesn't watch House much apparently.1 the guy who shot House was shot and caught immediately and spent the rest of the episode chained to a bed next to House. In that episode why he shot House was well explained and presumably the guy isn't mentioned ever again is he went to jail for life.
JLEM: Furio doesn't belong in there. It was a full character arc and there was closure. That's not dropped. And the Russian, barefoot, in pajamas, in the freezing snow, missing the back of his skull and bleeding profusely--DIED SOMEWHERE IN THE WOODS. The Russian was a catalyst for what the episode was really about. I really don't understand why people obsess about that guy. It's not like Soprano could deploy helicopters to do an aerial search, and Chris and Paulie were too stupid to make it a quarter mile without getting completely lost because mafiosos are complete melodramatic morons who secretly hate each other (hint: that is the point of the episode).
kliq: Everyone help! I've been crammed in Mr. Belding's file cabinet for 20 years![media.tumblr.com image 247x320]
mikieb: If the Russian died in the woods, then who stole Chris and Paulie's car?
NeoCortex42: Tatsuma: DamnYankees: That's probably because Lost resolved almost all of its subplots.Oh yeah, like we knowWhat was the deal with LibbyWhat exactly were Walt's powers, why he had them, and how they could have been useful to the Others.What exactly were Walt's superpowers and how come they never actually did anything useful?Where did all the extras disappear to when the main cast went back in time?If everybody who crashes into the island dies or can't get off the island, how did anybody get off the island to tell Darma about the island?How come Jacob was invisible to people before he was dead?Where did the "island natives" come from?If these thousands of people were on the island and didn't see each other for months, how come the one night Michael decided to take his boat off the island, the cast from Deliverance knew exactly where he'd be? And why did they want Walt so bad in the first place?How come so many people kept popping up on the island who never checked to see if the survivors of the plane crash were okay?Why was Walt the only kid on the plane? Because I don't know about you guys but I have never flown anywhere without the adorable companionship of a screaming baby.Why was Darma still making food drops?What was that light/"source" on the island after all? How did that cork get there? What were those skeletons below the waterfall?and a thousand other subplots that were absolutely not never answered after we were told they would be, only to be later told 'Stupid it's not about the Island, it's about the characters!'Libby had a breakdown when her husband died and checked herself into the hospital.Walt was mostly useful to the Others because they needed children to replenish their population due to the pregnancy issue.The main cast went back in time, not everybody. The extras were still chilling on the island.It's possible to get off the island by using the right bearing. It's not impossible for someone to make it off and figure out how to get back (The mainland station)Island Natives were the survivors of crashed boats over the years, or abductees from Dharma, etc.Maybe I'll do the rest later. I have a meeting to go to. Most of your questions were either answered or really are not important at all.
LordOfThePings: TheOther: I thought Janeway was exiled to the Delta Quadrant because she was the new hive queen?I thought it was because nobody in the Alpha Quadrant could stand her voice.
clkeagle: TheOther: 15. Foreman's near-death experience, House - the results confirm that his brain has been affected. How badly? We may never know, because it never really came up againDid I dream the subsequent episodes where Foreman's outlook and mental capacity are issues; where he asserts a 'Don't worry, be happy' and he'shiatting the books to relearn what has been lost? Was 13 in the shower the whole time?All lists suck in some manner, but dayuuum!You didn't dream it. He couldn't even remember how to make coffee the next episode, so House wouldn't let him touch a patient. He was pretty close to resigning, but by the end of the episode he was using flashcards to retrain his mind. And the incident was referred to in several subsequent episodes. I think it was wrapped up fairly well... House doesn't leave a lot of loose ends with its major characters.The only other show I watched on this list was TNG. The show runners have come out several times saying that Roddenberry was unhappy with that episode, and never allowed them to follow through with the subplot. He was strongly opposed to continuity and story development at that level. Most of the ideas they were going to use for those aliens became the Borg in later episodes.Is the rest of the list this bad?
CZMisfitsFan: //And I can tell you probably just watched about a season and a half worth of the show, decided it required too much thinking, and picked up tidbits about what happened from other sources.
Tatsuma: CZMisfitsFan: //And I can tell you probably just watched about a season and a half worth of the show, decided it required too much thinking, and picked up tidbits about what happened from other sources.oh and not only were you an assuming and insulting twat, you also carefully managed not to answer most of these questions at the same timeI've never seen you before, and I really haven't lost much.
Zombie DJ: HAHAHAHAHAHA!! A LOST reference, Subby? Ha ha ha! Oh gosh that's funny! That's really funny! Do you write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. You know, I've, I've never heard anyone make that joke before. Hmm. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference, reference that outside the program before. God what a clever, smart Subby you must be, to come up with a joke like that all by yourself. That's so fresh too. Any, any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me too as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. God you're so funny!
CZMisfitsFan: If you've seen each season that many times, you would have had all the answers. Unless you did have the answers and you just copied and pasted from that blog to make some kind of point. The only questions I didn't answer were about Walt (I agree that storyline went nowhere) and the whole "Source"/cork thing which I acknowledged.
CZMisfitsFan: Dharma kept making food drops because nobody ever bothered turning off the food drop alert system.
CZMisfitsFan: The skeletons were MIB and his mother.
CZMisfitsFan: The only people who popped up on the island after the crash were sent by Widmore, who were there to take out Ben and take over the island. Oceanic covered up the crash by saying everyone died.
NeoCortex42: Libby had a breakdown when her husband died and checked herself into the hospital.
Tatsuma: Oh yeah, like we know
Cutchaholic: Mad Men...
Ecobuckeye: Wow, TNG had some crappy effects.
Digitalstrange: Writer doesn't watch House much apparently.1 the guy who shot House was shot and caught immediately and spent the rest of the episode chained to a bed next to House. In that episode why he shot House was well explained and presumably the guy isn't mentioned ever again is he went to jail for life.2 the Foreman near death episodes aftermath played out over several following episodes as he had to learn some things all over again and was, for a brief time a very different person and House made much of how BS Foremans attitude conversion was until finally he was proven right and Foreman went back to his old self.How much more plot exploration did that need for the author?
PizzaJedi81: Ecobuckeye: Wow, TNG had some crappy effects.It was the late 80s, early 90s, what do you expect?
