We had seen Lennier sacrifice his well-being and almost die to save Peter Jurasik's character, who was the epitome of a Nazi war criminal
at the time. So we'd seen that this noble character would sacrifice his life for any lifeform... And, y'know. He chooses to let this fellow Ranger and
Sheridan die. —And then he changes his mind like a wimp
and goes to undo it, and it's too late 'cause Sheridan's already gotten himself
out of the mess, and then he turns to the Dark Side and goes off and banishes himself like a whiny wimp
. I wasn't happy with the end.
I wasnt as happy with the revisions
, but its not my show, you have to sort of adjust, even if sometimes it does seem a bit of a contradiction in terms for what your character is supposed to be about.
, Joey was a womanizer, but we enjoyed his exploits. He was a solid friend, a guy you knew you could count on. Joey was deconstructed to be a guy who couldn't get a job, couldn't ask a girl out. He became a pathetic, mopey character. I felt he was moving in the wrong direction, but I was not heard.

I think this leads into the biggest point of contention between Slott
and fans about Peter's characterization. Dan Slott hates Peter Parker.
He thinks Peter Parker is his own worst enemy and incredibly self-destructive and toxic to the people around him. That...that's not Spider-Man
. [...] Peter Parker is a victim of fate the majority of the time. He was relatable because his problems were usually out of his control, and he felt like the world was shitting on him all the time because he made one mistake. It wasn't just a constant stream of selfish actions compounding on each other and damaging his relationships. Slott pretty much writes Peter Parker to piss off and alienate everyone around him, and constantly ends up being a loser because he was incompetent and selfish. He makes Peter Parker a jerk with no regard for others. He makes Peter Parker irresponsible.
But yeah, The Joker
does not smile during any of this. In fact the Joker does not smile at any point in this comic
. Let me repeat that. The Joker
does not smile!

How does this happen?! It's as if someone just completely rewrote your characteristics for the sake of creating pointless drama, regardless of everything you've ever said or did before this point!
Dont cheer — Methos, one of the most likable and charismatic
characters in the series, is a complete asshole throughout this movie. In fact, theres another guy who wanted this film to be something good: Peter Wingfield actually cried
when given the chance to reprise his role as Methos. Or maybe he cried when he read the script
— I know I would have.
The major change, of course, is that Lois
has a child and is engaged to another man, Richard White. But, for the purposes of this movie, all that pales in comparison to the fact that she also wrote an article for an article called 'Why The World Doesnt Need Superman.' Which is pretty much just played off as something she wrote because she was mad Superman left without saying goodbye. So thats two
characters undermined in one scene! Three, if you count Jimmy Olsen
being a jerk and eating Clarks Welcome Back cake.

"Rise" is about as useful to Tuvok as the British were to Hitler in the Second World War, a complete spanner in the works of his development and taking him in a direction he has already flirted with and sinking him.
Bakula describes Archer's behavior as "a little over the line" in this episode. Yes, that's a fair assessment. Also, 9/11 was a little bit of a bummer
... I'm so very tired.
Why is Chloe, who just last week was lamenting how much she was expected to give up
in order to fulfill her duties as Watchtower, so adamant that Clark sacrifice himself for the greater good? If I were Clark I would look for better friends next season.

Patty and Selma hate Homer, and who could blame them? (Would you want your baby sister married to him?) But theyve always been fond, even proud, of Lisa. Here theyre basically saying to Marge: you married a fat loser and so will your precious daughter,
ha ha. They want Lisa to marry someone like Homer just to teach Marge a lesson or something, and its utterly contrary to everything we know about them.
