Quotes: Creator's Pet
C'mon, Lana! You're amazing!
— Smallville, "Thirst"
First Zod falls in love with Lana, now Bizarro? Is Brainiac next? Hey, I have an awesome idea, Al (Gough) and Miles (Millar). Let's introduce Doomsday, but instead of being evil, he falls in love with Lana! I'm a fucking genius! I just wrote Season 8!
The cliche is that Baker's Doctor is in many ways a self-portrait of John Nathan-Turner. This is, I think, a bit strong, but there's a strong sense in which, in 'Trial', he's an inadvertent stand-in for the series itself. Conceived in the afterglow of Longleat, he is a fatally flawed idea too arrogant to admit to the possibility of his failings even enough to defend himself. That only Baker's Doctor could be in this story is, in some sense, the point.
Watching Neelix sloughing in the Captainís chair on the Bridge is enough to make you feel nauseous. What has Star Trek come to?
Itís always lame to try and make your audience like a character by attaching a big body count or stupid-high power levels to him, but having him kill one of the all-time awesome, classic Spider-man villains offhandedly at the end of a story that didnít concern him, and for literally no reason at all, is fucking ridiculous and stupid. Thank God this kind of shit mostly died with the Ď90s. (Iím looking at you, Jeph Loeb.)
Widening Gyre has largely focused on a new vigilante in Gotham City named 'Baphomet,' who is so super awesome that he can totally take out the Joker all by his own self in a nice textbook example of bad storytelling. Itís so fanfic that the only way it could be any worse is if he didnít turn out to be Onomatopoeia.
—Chris Sims, "Worst of the Worst: ĎBatman: The Widening Gyreí #6"
Listen to me, Hideo Kojima, you really need to face the fact that nobody seems to like Raiden as much as you do. I mean, no one can say you didn't do all you could; you made him a cyborg breakdancing ninja, and he's still a little bitch.
After three films, Lucas finally got it. We only see this loathsome cunt for only a brief moment or two. But even though his role as a funny thing for young kids is no longer useful, he's still running around the Senate doing stuff. Why isn't he working as a janitor somewhere? Y'know, the thing he did on Naboo was like fifteen years ago; you'd think the novelty would've worn off.
—Red Letter Media on Jar Jar Binks
Whatever you might wanna say about George Lucas, when audiences said they didn't like Jar Jar, he dialed the character down to a few cameos throughout the rest of the films. When the Voyager producers where told the audiences didn't like Neelix, they decided to get rid of Neelix's beautiful, smart, competent ex-girlfriend and let him hang around to remind the audience how much they hate you personally.
