->As much as I dig the character, it's hard to think back fondly on the arrival of the villain who 'kills' Superman in the comics (i.e. [[TheDeathOfSuperman Doomsday]]) but who is dispatched with nary a whimper here before our boy even becomes [[{{Superman}} our boy]]...makes me [[SuckinessIsPainful spit blood]] to this day, just thinking about it. Worst season, easily.

->How ''rubbish'' is the Doctor?

->Wolverine goes all Creator/FrankMiller noble samurai on us and has bunch of internal monologue about honor that, well, reads like Creator/JephLoeb wrote it. Then he goes out, finds Sabretooth in the forest, and lops Sabretooth’s head off...Sabretooth is okay with this, probably realizing [[VillainDecay how fucking ridiculous he looks]] and how long he’ll need to be off-camera before anyone’s going to take him seriously again. Of all the guys on this list, Sabretooth is probably the most likely to come back, but don’t expect it to happen for at least five or ten years. [[WolverinePublicity Wolverine’s got so much shit going on these days]] he doesn’t really need an arch-nemesis.

->Don't get me wrong, the ''Stargate'' series was great, focusing on various groups using the titular devices to travel and explore different worlds. But for all the series went into wormhole theory, their grasp of medical science left a bit to be desired...the straw on this particular camel came in Season 3 of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' with the untimely and utterly surprising death of Dr. Beckett via...[[ARareSentence exploding tumor.]]\\\ Yes, friends, an exploding tumor, big enough to take out an entire floor of Atlantis. The episode is mid-season, it is a framed episode (almost always a sure sign that it is written by a hack, since it stretches 5 minutes of story into 40 by just denying the viewer [[HowWeGotHere a basic bit of knowledge]]) and came out of nowhere. Basically, SGA was already planning on a [[{{Retool}} major recast]] come Season 4 and didn't want to completely alienate everybody by changing things all at once...despite his exceptionally stupid demise Dr. Beckett did eventually get cloned and returned for a few cameos throughout season 5, proving -- as if Optimus Prime's continuing resurrections weren't enough -- that the one thing stronger than even death is [[FirstLawOfResurrection Fan Demand.]] -->--'''''{{Website/Cracked}}''''', [[http://www.cracked.com/funny-7660-10-most-implausible-unpleasant-infuriating-ways-sci-fi-shows-kill-off-main-characters/ "10 Most Implausible, Unpleasant, And Infuriating Ways Sci-fi Shows Kill Off Main Characters"]] ->Jonathan Kent died for a cheap hack's plot device... I'm so infuriated I want to be like [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert.]] I want to pull out the '[[RuinedFOREVER dead to me]]' board and put ''Smallville'' on it, replacing 'Men with beards'. -->--'''[[http://www.supermanhomepage.com/tv/tv.php?topic=reviews/smallville5-ep12 Neal Bailey]]''' on ''{{Series/Smallville}}'' ("Reckoning")


->Pose this one for me: If you have—which they had—this icon of American television, why the hell didn’t they give him a spectacular death? Why did they give him such a really paltry death? Me shooting the bridge out or some BS whatever it was? They should have sent him off in a glorious fashion, and they didn’t. They missed an opportunity. Yeah, they re-shot. What did they reshoot? It was just as bad as the first one. And they spent several million dollars...I don’t care whose fault it was. Whoever came up with his death at the end, I thought it was really cheesy. -->--'''Creator/MalcolmMcDowell'''

->To "put someone over" means to make them look credible--like a real, legitimate threat, an equal of sorts. Wrestling/RicFlair put a lot of guys over in his career, meaning they beat him, and in doing so, became superstars. The best example of this is, obviously, Wrestling/{{Sting}}; at the very first ''Clash of the Champions'', Flair allowed Sting to beat the crap out of him throughout their forty-five minute match. It should be noted that Sting didn't even win that match--[[WeWinBecauseYouDidnt it was a draw]]. Despite this, Flair had done such a masterful job of making Sting out to be an equal that fans bought him [[WorthyOpponent as being on par with the Nature Boy]]. In essence, Flair made Sting a star that night.\\\ Just losing to a person doesn't necessarily mean anything, and it was clear from the beginning that [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Hogan]] wasn't willing to do for [[Wrestling/BillyKidman Kidman]] what Flair had done for Sting. In their first match, Hogan beat the crap out of him the entire time, until [[Creator/EricBischoff Bischoff]] finally [[CombatPragmatist hit Hogan with a chair]] and Kidman got the pin. Even though Kidman "won", fans saw it for what it was: Hogan getting screwed and Kidman merely being in the right place at the right time. -->--'''R. D. Reynolds''' and '''Bryan Alvarez''', ''Literature/TheDeathOfWCW''
