They did pretty much the same thing to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Must be the latest burgeoning fad.
INT. NELL’S HOME/BEDROOM — DAY
Another bout of lovemaking between Clark and Nell comes to a close.
A minute later.
Nell and Clark lay together, sheets bunched up between them. Instead of cuddling, making pillow talk, they watch the ceiling — Nell with disinterest, Clark with dissatisfaction — a silent, palpable distance between them.
Sitting up, Nell reaches over Clark for the nightstand on his side of the bed, taking up a cigarette case and lighter resting atop a movie magazine. As she fishes a cigarette from the case, Clark picks up the magazine; an image of Greta Garbo emblazons the front cover.
CLARK: Greta Garbo. (flips through magazine) Is she a good actress?
Lighting up her cigarette, Nell shrugs.
CLARK: I don’t know any of the actors. I’ve never been to the movies. I’ve never been out of Smallville to see one. (beat) My whole life.
NELL: Poor dear. (solemn) I know that feeling well.
The two make eye contact, on the cusp of an emotional connection.
CLARK: Do you remember your first? Which was it?
Nell takes a moment to think it over.
NELL: Frankenstein, in 1910. (takes drag) Yes, it was Frankenstein.
CLARK: What was it like?
NELL: You’ve read the book.
NELL: There’s your answer.
The distance returns.
Nell offers Clark her cigarette. Accepting it, Clark takes a dispassionate puff. Tobacco does nothing for him.
INT. NELL’S HOME/ENTRANCE HALL — DAY
Nell opens the front door for Clark.
NELL: You’ll be in tomorrow, of course.
CLARK: It’ll be a long day for me. I don’t believe I’ll make it in.
NELL: Then the day after.
CLARK: The family’s entertaining a guest — my cousin Linda, visiting down from Canada. I’m sorry.
Clark enters the threshold.
NELL: (raises hand) Just a moment!
Stopping in the door, Clark waits for Nell as she leaves for another room. In a minute she returns, a fresh-baked pie in hand.
NELL: (offers pie to Clark) Pecan.
CLARK: Thank you.
Nell starts to smile.
CLARK: (cont’d) Ma has allergies, but I appreciate the gesture.
The nascent smile dies.
CLARK: (forlorn) Take good care of yourself, Nell.
Clark steps through the door, closing it after him. Nell is left standing in the entrance hall, alone with her pie.
Now I want a series predating even KOTOR about how humanoid androids rebelled and started a massive war against the “living” species, to the point where they infiltrated their enemy by creating duplicates, causig a McCarthyism-style witch hunt and ending in the banning of lifelike droids throughout the galaxy.
In other words, kind of what I wanted the Clone Wars to be, but with androids instead of clones.
In other words, sort of a mishmash of Blade Runner, The Second Renaissance, and some version of the Butlerian Jihad (but not BH/KJA’s version), set in the ancient times of the Star Wars universe.
So, a series about the Great Droid Revolution?

Even if I wanted to collect modern comics from the Big Two, this relaunching gimmickry would deter me quite sufficiently.

Go to a neurosurgeon and get that taken care of right quick.
Sorry to hear that, snooker. Here’s hoping your situation makes a change for the better soon.
"How exactly does one suck a fuck?"
"You want me to tell you?"
"Please, tell me."
I want to believe #108 will be a faithful throwback to the Marvel Star Wars of yesteryear, but the cynic in me suspects they’ll make it as generic and throwaway as most of the rest of Marvel’s recent output.
Star Wars: Episode ∞ – The Eternal Recurrence
I just can’t imagine Han wearing that silly shirt.
You must imagine what you have unimagined.
^It’s so ugly, it could be a modern art masterpiece.
Seriously, though, I couldn’t care less. It’s all just so much capitalist excessive waste to me.
Where other movies have reboots, Star Wars should have evolutions.
And the originals of course.
I’d rather Star Wars be blown up and an abstract mural made from the debris. 😛
Just to be clear, you’re saying that this is not what has actually happened?
Not abstract enough.
I like that the Dark Jedi from DARK FORCES II: JEDI KNIGHT had some color variety.
I love those guys.
Before the dark times … before the prequels. . . .
Discovered this band only this past week. Am already a fan.
While we’re talkin’ lightsabers, the only thing that bothers me is that they always make the bad guy have a red one. And only the bad guys have red ones. That’s dumb.
It’s the end result of a dumb “black n red r evul” mentality.
“Gift” in German means “poison”.
Do I want to know how this thread could be NSFW?
This thread was created when Off-Topic was unmoderated. One so inclined could’ve submitted an image containing full-frontal nudity (theoretically).
These days I wish all lightsabers were plain white.
