  1. No, it's not. The Genitive can be used this way in English with proper nouns just as it can be used this way with pronouns. Compare "I've never been a fan of hers."
  2. Hell, I'd love to look that good at the cusp of 60!
  3. Gosh, it would be awfully disappointing if we didn't at least get a pilot to snark on and roll our eyes at!
  4. I'm gutted that Emma and Anton didn't win. He's deserved this more than any other pro, especially since this is only the second time in his entire Strictly career that he's been given a good partner. He's getting on by pro standards (at 53, he's the oldest pro on ANY version of Strictly), and there's no telling how much longer he's going to want to keep doing this. He should be rewarded next year with the ringeriest ringer whoever rang so he can finally retire from the show on a high note instead of being either the bridesmaid or the eternal punchline to a joke that is no longer funny. So is there going to be a Christmas special this year? I haven't seen or heard anything about one!
  5. We always were. Hence the title "Crisis on Infinite Earths."
  6. And just now, Rene Auberjonois is gone: https://www.pix11.com/news/national-news/benson-star-trek-actor-rene-auberjonois-has-died-at-79?fbclid=IwAR29D8Y1j72EuzUrhPkfI23jTBa930DONB3E7Yxn-c3b78vG54r5GamsPxU That's three losses this week for the entire ST franchise (Robert Walker Jr., "Charlie X" also died yesterday at age 79). Hopefully, this marks the end of the "always in threes" rule. And RIP, Mr. Auberjonois!
  7. DAMMIT, 2019! What are you trying to do, give 2016 a run for its money during your last month? Lay off already!
  8. That's been the plan for over a year now. DWTS is only going to be a once-a-year thing, the same as all other versions have always been. So we won't see it again until September 2020.
  9. They already did that. It was called Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and the original idea was to have just that kind of anthology series, with each subsequent season being set in an entirely different world with an all-new set of characters. Then when Wonderland turned out to be better than the main show (and it was), the plan changed to just having a continuation of the original first season. Unfortunately, the show was canceled before any of that could be brought to fruition.
  10. You mean "the insanity that passes for normal," according to Charlie? It's the main reason that the show is still hanging in there -- it's such a palate cleanser after the Sturm und Drang of the rest of the Arrowverse!
  11. To be fair, though, that wasn't just meant to undo an accidental reveal of her secret identity. That was meant to undo an accidental reveal of her existence. For the first two years of Kara's life on Earth, she was supposed to remain completely unknown to the world until Superman felt she had been sufficiently trained in the use of her powers and had become sufficiently acclimated to Earth's culture before she was to go public. And Superman was quite strict about enforcing that particular rule.
  12. I'm not so sure that Andrea/Acrata really fits squarely in the "villain" category anymore. As I've watched her over the past few weeks, it's becoming very clear to me that she's not really the unfeeling, self-absorbed bitch we met in the season opener. She really only ever wanted to save her father from himself, and she did everything she could to stand up to Rama Khan before he overpowered her. I saw a lot of regret in her during the final scenes in these episodes, and I think we could well see a solid redemption arc for her after the crossover.
