Quotes: We're Still Relevant, Dammit

On works

"NBC was planning a Say Anything TV show until Cameron Crowe echoed the world’s thoughts by screaming, 'NOOOOOOOO.' Thank God NBC cares what Cameron Crowe thinks, because we really don’t need to see Lloyd and Diane’s son blast a cover of 'In Your Eyes' by 5SOS from a Jawbone while standing outside of his girlfriend’s townhouse"

"Aww, isn’t that cute, Mr. Dithers #gets #hashtags now! Unfortunately, the Blondie creative team doesn’t really #get that Twitter is not a texting or instant messaging service."
The Comics Curmudgeon on Blondie

"Yes, the product does have to 'change with the times'. That’s perfectly fine. I get it. Every form of entertainment, be it music or movies or video games or even pro wrestling has to evolve to maintain an audience. Although saying wrestling is ‘evolving’ when WWE’s main show has turned into a Gong Show-esque mish mash of bad guest hosts and even worse skits seems to be a bit misleading."
Wrestlecrap, "2009 Gooker Award"

"A time traveling mobile phone with boundless signal through time and space — can you imagine a better way to dazzle the youth of today?"
Doc Oho on Doctor Who, ""The End of the World"

"It being an odd-numbered episode, it’s time for the show to revamp itself once again, with characteristic subtlety. Now we’re in a big metaphor about the financial crash."
Phil Sandifer on Torchwood: Miracle Day

"If you want to prove Superman is still relevant, all you have to do is tell good Superman stories. Jumping up and down and screaming 'HEY, I’M STILL RELEVANT!' is the quickest way to lose the argument that nobody was asking you to have, and it’s even worse when you’re doing it by having a character beat up a parody of characters that were themselves already a parody. It’s 22 pages of DC’s inferiority complex about Superman, literalized into a story that features Joe Kelly trying to do a written impression of Warren Ellis".
Chris Sims on What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice And The American Way? (2001)

"When you consider the entire history of Magneto, it’s pretty ridiculous. He’s been assumed dead at least half-a-dozen times; he’s probably flip-flopped from villain to hero more times than that; and he’s been resurrected as both a Nelson-haired clone (millennials: Google 'Nelson band' to get how funny that is) and a star-headed Taoist. Mistakes have been made with the character; mistakes so big that the character’s retcons and course-corrections have diminished his stature, leaving readers to wonder; Just who the hell is Magneto?"
John Parker on Marvel NOW's Magento
