@jeanralphio: Oh boy. That'll be embarrassing but I'll try to take some photos this weekend.

@v_scarlotte_rose: @lykopis: It's a shame as it's a really well-done series and the issues have been reprinted a number of times (3-4 I think). I just don't know why the release schedule is nonexistent. It was how I was introduced to the whole concept of steampunk, even though I still don't know what it is. :-)
@nathanxplosion: Oh yeah! That reminds me of the episode which featured a kid who was playing what was basically a horrible rip off of GTA. Someone had also murdered a woman based on how you could kill one in the game. I don't recall much else about the episode but it just left me shaking my head. I do like when the staff have their actually intelligent back and forths about such topics, but the episodes tend to suck overall.
@citizenbane: Much agreed. You're much more loyal than I. :-)
if it weren't for Jennifer Lawrence the I wouldn't care about the Hunger Games...I'd probably equate it to Twilight or Harry Potter but because I'm desperately in love with Jennifer Lawrence I will watch the crap out of Catching Fire when it comes out on bluray
I feel you on that. I used to have a crush on her. I don't anymore but still respect her as an actor. She seems awesomely down to earth.
Was it better than the first movie? If not I won't check it out. Felt like a weak version of Battle Royale.
It was better than the first, but I just can't shake the feeling of something being off about it. I've not seen Battle Royal in nearly a decade, it feels like, but I read all the manga. Obviously the movie didn't hold up to the terror of the source material but I remember it being pretty decent.
Catching Fire was also my favourite book in the series; and I found the movie to be both a faithful adaptation of the book, and a good movie by itself. Honestly, IMO, I think the movie needed some humour in it, I mean we have Mockinjay to look forward to/dread, which is going to lack all sorts of happy moments.
I thought it had too much humor in it but the humor it did have was more like one liners which didn't really fit it's whole feel to me, and don't forget the elevator scene. No doubt it was a faithful adaptation and all. I'm dreading Mockingjay, especially because they're giving it the Twilight treatment. *rolls eyes*
Jennifer Lawrence was in it, what more do you want?
Fighting. The careers get like less than 5 minutes of screentime in the entire film. Enobaria was in the movie for maybe 30 seconds.
This was an issue too, because the relationships between Katniss (Catnip), Peeta (who I want to call Peeta Malarkey) , and the careers are important to develop and carried a good bit of Catching Fire. I know they didn't want to bore the audience with too much of a repeat Hunger Games experience, but they did little to develop those friendships and that's kind of a big thing in the last book. That being said, I'm glad they did focus on Effie's feelings towards Katniss and Peeta and the little things they did with President Snow were good.
Sorry, everyone. I didn't think anyone was responding to this thread.
@joshmightbe: Yeah, I've never like this episode either. The vast majority of their stuff before Meloni's leaving was good but whenever they delved into subcultures or even ethnic minorities (Romani as I think that was on the same day as the vigilantes one) they tend to cater heavily to negative stereotypes. They just need to end the show, honestly. I don't even watch the newer stuff as it tends to be lazily written and based on headlines rather than actually thought out. But anyway, as soon as I remembered what the episode you mentioned was about I just wandered away from the tv and started doing something else.

security were dicks that day so my cousin took a fast photo of me leaving the table also met cm punk jason david frank and jake the snake roberts.
Wow! These are three people I'd love to meet. I saw Jake "The Snake" wrestle once when I was a little kid and was both thrilled and scared to see a "real" wrestling match. It's the only one I've seen to this day. It's kinda weird how Jason David Frank basically looks the same after 20 years since MMPR. Jake has not aged well. Lol.
I met Jerry Robinson a few months before he died as he was giving a speech at a local museum and decided to do an impromptu signing for us. It was super awesome of him and his son (Jens) to do. I feel really honored to have met him. :/ Only about ten people showed up, believe it or not, and he signed a copy of the Batman Chronicles I'd bought just for the occasion and discussed his recent travels in Europe. I still get sad when I think about it.
For everyone who's said Billie Jean, I never got how creepy that video was until I got a bit older. I'm almost afraid to say it but I love Dirty Diana.
@the_stegman: Ah, yes. Scream is almost on par with Dirty Diana for me. Is that video still the most expensive music video ever made?
