    • Seven still has that eyebrow implant. Maybe she choose not to have that removed so she could blend in, or removing that implant isn't possible.

    I think they actually established that in Voyager.  In the episode where they had the three drones that had separated themselves from the Collective and came looking for Seven, they had far more extensive implants, and IIRC, they made mention that the reason Seven wasn't like that was because the Doctor had done such a good job removing hers.

    They could just have a different woman be Thor. There's nothing in the current MCU that suggests Jane could, or should, be Thor, and they already abandoned the idea that Thor has a human avatar/alter-ego.

    To me, if they're going to tell the story (even if they do it without some of the heavier elements), the audience needs to have an emotional connection to whoever is going to pick up the hammer.  How much the audience is connected to Jane is debatable, but they would literally be starting from scratch with a new character.

    Never really liked the notion of a lady Thor (I basically dislike this kind of legacy characters in general, there is only one Thor, if they want to give someone powers, fine, but call it something else), but okay, let's see where they will be going with this one.

    The comics story could have been really cheap, but it was honestly WONDERFUL.  It ran for four years, and it was kind of devastating when it ended.  I very rarely think this, but I would have been fine for Jane to continue as Thor for a long, long time.

    I wish they'd gone a bit more out of the box and found a woman who is as statuesque and imposing as Chris Hemsworth.

    It would have meant recasting Jane.  They pulled off a major recast once, but I don't know if they could manage it again, especially when they're much deeper into their story.    Plus, maybe Brie can give Natalie some Jeep-pushing pointers.

  4. During the panel in Hall H, Kurtzman asked the crowd if they'd like to see a Pike series, and got a huge confirmation cheer.  His response was "noted."

    I honestly think they'd do it in a heartbeat if they could get Anson Mount to commit.  He's said that needing to be in Canada for months to film is too hard for him, but maybe they'd consider either backing up a dumptruck full of money into his drive, move the production to LA (like Picard), or both.

    Data blowed up on the Scimitar.... Nothing usable was recovered or Picard would have mentioned it in his Nemesis final log entry...Guess these producers never saw the movie......

    Data also says that he downloaded his memories into B-4, which is confirmed when the latter starts singing "Blue Skies" at the end of the movie.

    I like that the moms worked and other parts too.

    And the town doctor was a woman.  It's rather sad to think that was probably novel in the mid-80s.

    Even Richard's over protectiveness of Mary Anne made sense with his wife dying when she was a baby and she was all he had. Sure he needed to lighten up but it makes sense even more when you get to the book about MA's grandma who tried to get custody of MA after his wife died. 

    Even though that plot seemed to come out of nowhere, it made so much sense in hindsight.  Mary Ann seemed to get her saucy sense of humor from her grandmother.  I remember loving that when they met up with Grandma at the Mall of America on their road trip, Grandma really shaded Dawn's father, who was being a total asshole.

    I did love how they always managed to get to go on so many trips with their friends. My friends and I always wished we could do that. 

    With the BSC--in addition to Watson trying to buy Kristy's affections--Stoneybrook seemed to have two sides, the upper-class side and the upper-middle-class side.  Given that Stamford seemed like a stand-in for Hartford, with its eleventy-billion insurance companies, the general lack of money problems among the families (exception for the Pikes) seems realistic.  And now I can't stop thinking that Watson was neighbors with Richard and Emily Gilmore.

    As an aside, one of the things I really liked about the setting was that so many of the moms worked.  Which also strikes me as realistic for the population Stoneybrook was likely to have.  The moms who were divorcees probably had to (and that provides a need for the BSC's services), but Claudia's mom didn't, nor did Kristy's mom after she remarried.

    Reasons being probably something to do with the original making something like $300 million dollars in 1989. The domestic gross adjusted for inflation is higher than the last Ant man movie. For how simple a movie idea it is, I am surprised it hasn't come back sooner.

    I suppose, but is that a movie anyone thinks about any more?  The only reason it's crossed my mind in the last 25 years is because How Did This Get Made covered both Look Who's Talking Too and Look Who's Talking Now.
