->There was a brief blip where and it probably was never true, but there was a rumor I remember where they were going to cast Creator/RobertRedford, and I want to say Creator/PaulNewman, as Kirk and Spock. It was a big rumor in the mid-‘70s that they would [[TheOtherDarrin recast the roles]] with them and do it as a movie. It probably had no basis in reality. But people were just foaming at the mouth in fan circles. It was just madness, madness! ‘YOU CAN’T DO THAT!’ If they had done that, everything would have been different. It might have worked, but we’ll never know.

->I heard a rumor one time that Edward James Olmos was considered as a Captain for ''Voyager''. I'm almost certain that's not true, but it does raise an interesting question of what Commander Adama of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' would have done in Janeway's place. Well first, I think it's pretty damn obvious we'd see a lot more of Neelix being [[TakeThatScrappy bludgeoned with a flashlight.]]

->That god damn ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2223990/ Draft Day]]'' movie was supposed to be about the Bills but then movie producers decided to go with the Browns.

->You know, I'd give good money if this version of the movie could be erased, and I could see the original concept; From what I've heard, it was supposed to be much darker, and Data was [[ICannotSelfTerminate supposed to be killed off]], [[WeUsedToBeFriends by Picard himself]]. Granted, that would have made it an even bigger ''[[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T2]]'' ripoff, but at least we'd be spared [[SuckinessIsPainful the pain that is soon to come]].

->Years before the version of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' that we know and love, there was another version, [[DevelopmentHell scrapped by Disney]] in 1983 until Robert Zemeckis revived the concept, building on some of what had come before...Had this version been made, Jessica Rabbit would probably have been the villain and not the toon-fetish we all know today, and ''[Paul]'' Reubens might have focused on voice-over work to the detriment of [[Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse that other bow-tied character]] he was working on as part of a stage show at the time. So we're probably better off --- but it's fascinating to see what could have been.

->What makes this role particularly sad is the fact that Raul Julia only agreed to be in ''Film/StreetFighter'' because [[SoMyKidsCanWatch his kids were fans of the game]]. He had a couple of automatic-awesome movies lined up afterward, including the role of the main villain in Robert Rodriguez's ''{{Film/Desperado}}''. But he died very suddenly and never got to do any of them, so his last contribution to the world of cinema ended up being Street Fighter the goddamned movie.

->For all that it is hailed as the greatest Creator/PeterDavison story and one of the greatest ever, almost nobody suggests including it as the representative story for the Davison era. The consensus seems to be that its greatness is only properly appreciated when you’ve [[SlowPacedBeginning seen the rest of the Davison era]]...Yes, the story looks great in contrast with everything around it, but that’s not because it pays off any buildup from them. It’s because they were often a complete mess and this story isn’t. Yes, this story [[DamnedByFaintPraise looks like an absolute giant]] compared to the rest of the Davison era, but that’s as much because of their flaws as its merits.\\\
The fact of the matter is that they couldn’t get the Davison era to work until his last story. They drove the best actor they’d had since [[Creator/PatrickTroughton Troughton]] away with the crap scripts of Season 20, and by the time they gave him a truly brilliant script he’d [[ArtistDisillusionment already decided to leave.]]

->The thought of Wrestling/{{W|orldWrestlingFederation}}WF vs. Wrestling/{{WCW}} was something that fans had wanted since the two companies became the standard bearers for the wrestling industry in North America. Fans would debate [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny who would win a world title showdown]] between {{Wrestling/Goldberg}} and [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]... Perhaps it was because [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince (MacMahon)]] never really wanted to acknowledge that WCW was [[Wrestling/MondayNightWars on equal ground]] with his own creation. He had, after all, refused to even acknowledge their existence on WWF television until the late [=1990s=], when ''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Nitro]]'' was beating ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]''[='s=] ass in the ratings. They were the only wrestling company to successfully compete with him, and not only that, beat him at his own game. It was a humiliation that a man of Vince’s fragile ego seemed unable to endure. Therefore, it probably shouldn’t have come as much of a shock that when he finally got the chance to pit the two companies “against” each other, that he had the WWF side [[SquashMatch completely annihilate]] WCW.
