  1. That is a loooooong list…so I’ll just comment on the more urgent stuff:

    – Lets see some Nicholas Sparks books with bright pink covers…and a stiletto and/or a lipstick and/or a cupcake on beneath the italicised serif-font title and the name of “N. Sparks” – to see him compete on an even playing field for once ^.~

    – Parallel Lines looks intriguing.

    – Chris Evans?! Seriously? When the ONLY part of that man’s body that isn’t chisled is his jaw?? It didn’t occur to anybody to put the mask on him (or photoshop it on his pic, or whatever) and check for sufficient impressiveness? Now the only way they can make this up to me would be by making him fight without a shirt on.

    – What do we want? ALL NEW TORCHWOOD!!! When do we want it? NOW!!!!!!

    – I’m surrounded by math! It’s everywhere!!! AAAAAARGH.

    • - Don’t Nicholas Sparks books look like that anyway. ;)

      – Parallel Lines looks very intersting – especially considering it’s a Marketing thing and not really an art project.

      – lol@Chris Evans’ jaw… But if your other choice is John Krasinski, Chris is probably the better guy. :) Shirtless fighting is never wrong, though.

      – TORCHWOOD YAY! :)

      – You’ll survive the math, you have so far. ;)

      • Okay…if the only other choice was John Krasinski, fine. But it wasn’t. There was no earthly reason to have the same guy play two Marvel superheroes. Because now, apart from the lack of a sufficiently impressive jawline, Johnny Storm will be Steve Rogers, or a clone of Steve Rogers…or Steve Rogers will be a clone of Johnny Storm…or they will be each other’s transdimensional counterparts, or something…and it makes my geek-brain ache.

        What about Jensen Ackles?
        Or, really, since Captain America is really just the result of a super-soldier program, how about Anthony Montgomery? Or a Latino? Or Sendhil Ramamurthy? They had more possibilities with this one than with any other superhero they filmed to date…and they’re wasting them.

        • I know, it’s seriously wacky. It screws with my head, too and I’m not even a fan of either the Fantastic Four or Captain America…

          And Jensen Ackles? Awesome. Awesome idea. [But then again, hardly anything wouldn't be better with Jensen Ackles.]
          Sendhil Ramamurthy would be interesting, but I’d appreciate any chance to get him out of Heroes.
