    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

    The producers have said that they used greenscreen to remove the puppeteers, but the characters (and a lot of the sets) look completely practical.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

    It's just now opening, but it's also gotten fairly poor reviews. I'm interested to see what happens.

    That's just...gorgeous.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I know I'm supposed to think the "Just a Girl" scene is really cheesy, but I can't help but love it. Carol just looks so happy having the gloves off and getting to kick ass. As an aside, there's an all-ages Captain Marvel comic coming soon where Carol discovers that NYC's bodega cats have been replaced by flerkens. Sounds like it would be fun for any young members of the Carol Corps you know.
  5. I would take this with a ginormous grain of salt, but this is a supposed list of Phase 4 plans. I'm spoiler tagging because the thumbnail has alleged titles.
  6. I hope the Shadow Proclamation comes along with the Judoon. Always liked those weirdoes.

    Babylon 5

    The scene was shot. The dialog was new.
  8. An actual description this time. An actual, very generic description The second longest episode title in Trek's history, with only "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" besting it.

    Babylon 5

    I believe the easily/legally available version (DVD and streaming) is the 1998 version, which contained other edits as well, including losing Londo describing Sinclair as B5's "final commander." It also originally had a (bad) score by Stewart Copeland which was redone by Christopher Franke to match the rest of the series. It's not available legally anywhere AFAIK.
  10. There are certain realities that go into filmmaking. I think it's highly unlikely that they could have somehow gotten every single actor to be available to come to Georgia on the same day to film a non-speaking cameo.

    Babylon 5

    You're absolutely right about that, but--while he was undeniably incredibly clever about being able to modify plots that he'd either dropped or set up with one set of circumstances and able to keep the story moving in the same direction--he had a habit of saying that the show had ALWAYS intended to do that.

    Star Trek: Picard Anticipation

    The destruction of the Enterprise-D already makes it impossible that this is that future.

    God, I hope not.

    One episode in, I'm not sure if I think this is fun trash, or just trash without any redeeming fun. I'm going to give it another episode or two, though.

    Babylon 5

    According to the Lurker's Guide, the idea of Valen as "Minbari not born of Minbari" wasn't introduced until the beginning of the third season. I just can't imagine they wouldn't have seeded that earlier had the ultimate plan been for him to go into the past. Sakai seemed pretty clearly headed for Anna Sheridan's role, IMO.
  16. I think that I didn't like about Woody and Jamie was that they seemed to be playing Carroll O'Conner and Sherman Hemsley, not Archie and George.
  17. Sally said something bitchy about Norman Lear being better served by being retired and traveling.
  18. I was surprised that I ended up really enjoying it. I mean, as with many things in this vein, it's best described as "unnecessary but fun" but it WAS fun. Jeffersons was definitely the stronger of the two, but Anthony Anderson, Marisa Tomei, and Wanda kept AITF from being a total disaster, even with Jaime Foxx seeming to completely miss the point of what they were trying to do. I think the best moment was J-Hud singing. The thing got phenomenal ratings, so I'm sure they're going to do it again. Dare I hope for Golden Girls next time?
  19. That's usually how time travel has been used in actual Marvel Comics. Best example is the Days of Future Past story. Kitty Pryde going back in time didn't change her present, but she did prevent it from becoming 616's future.
  20. How would that work if 2018 Thanos would still have to gather the stones? Steve put them back at the moment they were taken, which were all before the Snap and Thanos' subsequent destruction of them.
  21. But wouldn't the removal of Thanos from 2014 just create an alternate version from that point forward in that timeline? Because if that had happened in the Prime MCU, the Snap wouldn't have happened in the first place, which would have reset everything.
  22. But they don't exist in the 2023 of the MCU Prime timeline. Original Recipe Thanos destroyed that set, which is why they had to be retrieved from and then returned to, the past.
  23. What I keep wondering about with the timeline issue is something the Ancient One said. If the Stones are needed to help defend reality, whether or not Steve's returning them meant that they remained in the original timeline and didn't end up skewing off, 2023 is still left without any. The Time and Mind Stones were the only ones that were actually being used, but if their mere existence keeps extradimensional threats at bay, what happens now? I mean, the power of the Sorcerer Supreme didn't entirely come from the Eye, but will Strange be any less powerful now that he won't have it?

    Babylon 5

    Straczynski's answers about what the Original Plan was are, charitably, inconsistent. Particularly, the excuse that traveling through time 4 years caused Sinclair to age at least fifteen years seemed like an handwave that was onyl partly successful.
