  1. Plain and simple Garak. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
  2. One factor to consider is just how many scripted shows there are now. 2016 had 455 (!) scripted shows. I would imagine that creates a lot of pressure to get a deal done. Were there even half that many in 2007-2008?
  3. Episode IX would almost have to be impacted by a prolonged strike. There were reports that they had only just completed the first draft.
  4. It's probably because, in theory, the sequel should be able to get right down to telling its story. There was so much character exposition to get through in the first film (and a lot of it was pretty on the nose and rather clunky). You would hope that a movie freed of the burden of introducing its world and its multiple characters (that were pretty damn beloved) would have lots of advantages up front.
  5. Apparently, the last writers strike brought us such jems using half-finished scripts such as Wolverine: Origins, Quantum of Solace, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. (Not to mention Heroes season two. *Shudder*) So, here's hoping the writers get everything they are asking for in short order.
  6. I think last time, there were some executive producers doing some writing. From what I've seen, that is less likely to happen this time. Seems there is pressure this time for shows to not even film scripts that have already been written once a strike begins. Also, we had a lot reality shows start to appear. They brought back Celebrity Apprentice, I believe, because they needed content. The rest is hell-story.
  7. I had the opposite experience with Ultron. The weaker-than-expected reviews actually lowered my expectations, and I ended up really enjoying it on first watch. But I found that it didn't hold up very well on rewatch (for me anyway). Certainly watchable, but missing something.
  8. A story or a plot? Guardians didn't have much in the way of plot (move the MacGuffin around for 2 hours), but that was just about the least important thing about it. Humor and likable characters (and character arcs) bouncing off each other were the engine that drove the first film.
  9. Watch a movie on opening day or forever be spoiled on it. Just the rules.
  10. The First Avenger managed to tick up into the 80s, but pretty sure that was a while after release.
  11. It's at 86% now. (Every negative is going to take a bite out of it with this low number of reviews.)
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's action-packed plot, dazzling visuals, and irreverent humor add up to a sequel that's almost as fun -- if not quite as thrillingly fresh -- as its predecessor. That seems to match the consensus on the consensus.
  13. Interesting. Breaking that down using RT math (always, of course, perfectly matching everyone's opinions): Iron Man 1+2 = 83%, Thor 1+2 = 71.5% Cap 1+2 = 84.5%, Avengers 1+2 = 83.5%. So, for GOTG 1+2 to equal 85%, V2 would need a 79%. Seems pretty doable based on the response so far.
  14. Unless the average rating of 7.5 takes a huge hit whenever the flood of reviews hit, I would think this will end up in the 80% range somewhere. Age of Ultron managed 75% with a 6.7 average.
