gadian: NeoCortex42: What did it for me was her treatment of Data. When I was a kid watching TNG during its initial run, Data was by far my favorite character. The way she talked down to him and treated him like equipment was infuriating.

That was me too. She was just so MEAN. To everyone, really.


It's not so much the "mean" for me is that she is just so openly condescending to everybody, everybody, and had absolutely nothing to show for it. The one time I can think of when she actually had to do something, she bungled it and had to have someone else save her ass.

gunga galunga: Didn't Lucas work it into Star Wars canon that Boba Fett blasted his way out of the Sarlaac and survived?


It was in one of the Dark Empire comics. Han goes back to his old apartment on Corellia (or maybe Nar Shadda) and Fett is there waiting for him. He says something about how no one ever escaped because they tried to go out they way they came in, and he had the brilliant idea of making a new exit.

Spike and Drusillia were only supposed to be vamps of the week. Spike ended up a co-star regular on both Buffy and later Angel.

You can debate whether she qualifies as only minor, but clearly missing:

The average age of Buzzfeed's writers must be like 20.

I don't know if that would actually count. True, the Fonz was initially a minor character, but quickly became the star of the show.


Isn't that pretty much exactly what the headline is describing? I think The Fonz should be #1.

CSB: ABC did not want Fonzie to be perceived as a thug and initially forbade him from wearing a leather jacket,
but Garry Marshall eventually wrung a concession out of them that he could wear the jacket if he was riding his
motorcycle. He would wear sweaters or sweatshirts any other time.

Marshall them proceeded to make sure that for the first season of the show the character was always shown on
on near his motorcycle, which in turn built up the character's mystique and appeal and made sure he became a
cultural icon of the 1970s.

Tax Boy: Originally a minor recurring Agent, Clinton Jones has been one of the more stable characters on USA's White Collar, gradually getting more character development and screen time. Sharif Atkins was added to the main cast for season four.

Well, he'd literally just come from babysitting Stark and you can imagine he wasn't in a great mood. Remember, Thor and Iron Man 2 take place at basically the same time, aka Nick Fury's Busy (Big) Week.

Yeah. Disney can crank out multiple shows with 25 episode seasons and then just keep cranking them out. Sure, they are not the same quality as VB, but they seem pretty decent for kid shows. You would think that the VB crew would have made enough cash so far that they could speed things up.

[media.screened.com image 742x555]

(Alec Baldwin from Glengarry Glenross)

So much this. The movie tracks the play almost to the letter, but his character was written in as a 5-ish minute bit. His character totally did not match up with the tone of the entire move... but his quick burst did help set the progress of the plot as it goes slowly nowhere but down.

/my favorite movie of all time


Oddly enough I received an email today from corporate sales asking for Glengarry leads, because those "gold" leads are the leads they give to closers.. with accompanying youtube links to spice up the email

scottydoesntknow: Ryan2065: mamoru: Boba Fett was killed at the END of Return of the Jedi???? Then which frakkin' movie did I see? :-/

Huh?

FTA: George Lucas didn't anticipate how popular this bounty hunter character with next to no lines would be, otherwise we doubt he would have been killed in Return of the Jedi.

It's why he capitalized END. Fett died well before the end.


Technically, he's still alive at the end, since he would have just begun the thousand year digestion cycle of the average Sarlacc.

Okay, question for West Wing fans. Does anyone else feel weird referring to Mrs.Landingham as "Delores"? Like it's out of line and too familiar or not showing the proper respect?

Lernaeus: Technically, he's still alive at the end, since he would have just begun the thousand year digestion cycle of the average Sarlacc.

/yes, I'm a nerd


According to the Dark Empire sourcebook (West End Games D6 Star Wars RPG) the it wasn't so much that you were slowly digested, as you'd die from thirst/hunger long before that, it's that the Sarlacc lacked the digestive enzymes required to use the stuff that fell in its gullet as food, so it actually took control of you and used your own digestive system to break down your body for it to eat.

That's classic. I always add subtle GG/GR references in emails when we're talking sales. Which can be challenging when every reference generally has the word "fark" in it at least once.
