->"Seriously, Mary Sue, you worry me. You do realize that there is a difference - a very BIG difference - between a cool, collected, liberated woman and a violent, self-aggrandizing bitch? I can't get over how many of you girls think that physically abusing men for no reason other than you're annoyed with them makes you look 'cool'. It doesn't. You do realize that punching men for talking to you does not make you look feisty and independent, it makes you look dangerously unhinged and would not serve to endear you to anyone, still less the man you've just punched?" -->'''LJ user sevendials''', from [[http://fanficrants.livejournal.com/3496750.html a post on Fanfic Rants]]

->The essential story structure of a Macho Sue tends to revolve around untouchable pride. If love means never having to say you're sorry, being Macho Sue means the whole of reality loves you. Typically, Macho Sue's storyline follows a certain trajectory: he begins by acting egregiously, picking or provoking fights and causing problems. However much the ensuing difficulties can be laid at his door, Macho Sue is not about to apologise, in any way. So the problems continue - only to be salvaged by some immense reversals that give the impression that he was right all along. The man he insulted turns out, suddenly, to be a bad guy. The woman who dislikes him falls into his strong arms when he solves a problem that is not the same problem he caused for her. People change their personalities, storylines shift and flip like a mechanical maze popping up new paths and lowering old gates in order to keep Macho Sue from ever, ever having to backtrack. As Creator/JohnWayne says, 'Never say sorry - it's a sign of weakness.'

->The narrative of Strauss's book is at best bipolar if not outright schizophrenic. Alongside the story of his evolution from self-loathing ([[FromNobodyToNightmare but probably decent]]) human being to totally-awesome-stud-alpha-game-messiah is the contrasting tragic tear-jerking meltdown(s) of the lovable-douchey-attention-whore called 'Mystery'. Though Strauss makes great effort to critique the the vain emptiness of some aspects of the game culture and the transformation of nice goofy guys into slick greaseballs, he behaves in almost the exact same way but paints his exploits in a radioactive awesome colour (because when the alpha-game-messiah does it [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality it's all cool braaah]]). And so throughout the book Strauss gets to have it all ways. He assures us he's a nice guy by denouncing the real scum-bags and bitchy women, paints game-brohs as multi-dimentional guys with complex personalities and fragile hearts, describes women as moronic fem-bots and or bitchy catty witches, is totally a nice guy, lists his glorious herculian conquests, acts like a douche-bag, reminds you he's really a nice guy and throughout tells a journalistic narrative in both the first and third person... By the end the only unquestionably good lesson anyone should take from it is that having your cake and eating it too is very possible in autobiographical narratives. -->--'''''Wiki/RationalWiki''''' on Neil Strauss, the Moses of Pick-Up culture

->Bakula describes Archer's behavior as "a little over the line" in this episode. Yes, that's a fair assessment. Also, [[{{Understatement}} 9/11 was a little bit of a bummer]]...I'm so very tired.\\\ No surprise, Bakula really enjoyed this episode. And why wouldn't he? He's in every scene, he has lots of words to say, and he gets to [[TestosteronePoisoning make out with a chick 20 years younger than him]]. This is definitely an actor's kind of episode. It's not so much a viewer's kind of episode.

->Lana Lang was the prototypical everything to everyone character. She could hit someone for disagreeing with her, but if someone hit her, [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality they were a villain.]] She knew karate, but [[WoundedGazelleGambit was ever the victim.]] Hypocritical in almost every respect, she would set standards for others that she could not keep herself, and in the end was forgiven all [[ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful for being beautiful]].

I mean absolutely livid. Okay I am livid. I am not saying Oliver Queen was ever the beacon of hope and example of Super hero-ness as Clark Kent, but to actually write a scene where Lana Lang, of all people, lectures him about what it means to be a superhero? Are you kidding me?\\\ Lana is at best a dark 'hero' character using the word hero loosely. She kills, she kidnaps, she tortures, and she has plotted and schemed [[EvenEvilHasStandards in a way that even caught Lex Luthor off guard]]. She is basically what I would call [[ReformedCriminal a reformed villain]] AT BEST and honestly I think her character works better as a villain. Maybe a tragic villain but still the '[[TheHeavy bad guy]]'. To put her in a position where [[KnowNothingKnowItAll she is the one lecturing an iconic DC superhero about how to be a superhero]] is just insulting. It angered me and my interest in Green Arrow is limited to ''Smallville'' and the last line of ''Justice League'' cartoons. I never purchased a ''Green Arrow'' comic in my life but I care enough about the character to find this scene so insulting and aggravating that I just wanted to scream. [[TheScream Actually I did scream]] which caused me to get a dirty look from the wife but she agreed that it was a bad scene. To make it worse she [[TheUnmasking demasked him]] in a kung-fu fight.

Amy continues to flirt madly with the Doctor despite the fact that her boyfriend is along for the ride now.

I kind of figured that perhaps Amy wasnít working for me when I was cheering as she was consumed by a gaping, muddy maw. It seems the only time I can ever feel anything for this character is when she is [[TakeThatScrappy tortured horribly]] and when it appears that she has been buried alive [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing my heart skipped a beat]]. Thatís a horrible position for anybody to be in. Except Amy doesnít panic for long, sheís soon being gobby again.

->Lana Lang ->They never showed us why Lana was so great and why Lana [[KarmaHoudini deserved to be a Superhero.]] Sure they 'told' us more than once but that never matched what they actually showed us.
