Quotes: It Gets Better
Paul: I have to admit, it's getting better, a little better all the time.
"GET ON WITH IT!"
Everyone in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Even God.

"A story that begins with some crudely drawn panels of a boy wandering around his house, very gradually, achieves liftoff in scope and presentation. As hard as it might be to believe from reading the first few panels, everything in that trailer takes place in the story later on in a meaningful context."

"A movie so fullfilling, you won't remember that the first 25 minutes are actually kind of boring."

"The Last Stand is the tale of two halves. The first half is so painfully dull I got so close to turning the movie off. You see, it takes nearly half the movie to get this ridiculous plot underway. We have to explain how the most notorious drug cartel leader in history escapes from federal custody, escapes road blocks, escapes helicopters, escapes every police agency and the military, and the ONLY person able to stop him is Arnold Schwarzenegger. A killer robot from the future is frankly more plausible after seeing the things the writers pull out of their collective asses. But the worst part is none of it is interesting. We know this is the dirty work of getting the plot underway and there is no chance of the bad guy getting stopped prior to getting to the town so we are just sitting as the movie goes through the motions."

"For all that it is hailed as the greatest Peter Davison 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 youíve seen the rest of the Davison era, seemingly on the grounds that in order to appreciate how Davisonís Doctor is put through the wringer here you have to see him in more normal circumstances...Yes, the story looks great in contrast with everything around it, but thatís not because it pays off any buildup from them. Itís because they were often a complete mess and this story isnít. Yes, this story looks like an absolute giant compared to the rest of the Davison era, but thatís as much because of their flaws as its merits.

The fact of the matter is that they couldnít get the Davison era to work until his last story. They drove the best actor theyíd had since Troughton away with the crap scripts of Season 20, and by the time they gave him a truly brilliant script heíd already decided to leave."

"We mused at the irony of the fact that the first two years of Enterprise blew the big one, and now, they've started paying attention to the mythos, looked into what the viewers really want, and the show is entering its finest period. Season three? Eh. Season four... it's really getting better.

We've been watching
Smallville and Enterprise concurrently since both began, they're the only dramas I watch, and they are cyclical and opposites in quality. Enterprise just got cancelled. Smallville is chugging along... Strange, how people will flock to the show that is sinking and abandon others just as they get good."

"I'm stuck in this town called Hollow Bastion.note  And I'm not even the main character — I'm Roxas. The main character's Sora, and I keep having dreams about the main character. Meanwhile, Tony Soprano's in a coma... there's no instant gratification. I'm gettin' a little bored, but my friends are like Keep playin', keep playin'! Eventually Disney characters are comin' out of every orifice! It's awesome, just stick with it! So I do, and I go to the bulletin board, and I look at all the jobs, and I do all the errands, and I get enough money to buy a train ticket, to get on the dope ass Disney train to go to the fun fucking part of the game! That's bullshit! It took me like 4 years! I didn't see so much as a Sebastian the Crab for like a hundred millennia!"
M.C. Chris on Kingdom Hearts II
