Re: The Event Series

I don't have much to say about individual episodes (eatthecorn did a brilliant episode by episode breakdown over on his website) but the Revival was a massive disappointment and I prefer the Season 10 that Joe Harris did over for IDW Comics. Thanks for that! And overall I agree as well that the sto...

Re: Parallels to "Deep Throat"

It is very similar, isn't it? And Deep Throat is the second episode too, as if Carter wanted to go back to the source of the show, back to what was the success of the series originally. Unfortunately for him, after Deep Throat there have been another 200 episodes and the story told in them doesn't j...

Re: My Struggle 2: Favorite/Least Favorite Moments

I should mention that I briefly spoke to Joe Harris, the writer of the S10/S11 comics, at Emerald City Comic Con last week. I told him that his S10 was better than CC's S10, and his facial expression told me that he completely agreed. All he could say was "no comment". But it was clear th...

Re: Post for Eat the Corn

That is true, what you are saying. Most viewers, some of them fans even, had a lot of trouble figuring out the mytharc -- even if after years of mystery Carter really spelt things out very, very clearly in Two Fathers/One Son and The Truth. So many wouldn't notice if large parts of the old mytharc w...

The thing with the Topps comics is that they weren't allowed to develop their own continuing storyline -- 1013 prevented that.
