Ah, that makes even more sense. I forget, living in Oregon, that lots of people have to actually GO someplace to vote. I was figuring they thought people would be glued to election coverage (which seemed improbable to me, but hey).

Pretty much. We caught up on Sleepy Hollow and 2 Broke Girls and I watched another episode of Star Wars Rebels

I'm glad nothing was new because I went to the polls to vote. When I got home, I ended up watching that Marvel show. Some of Marvel's history was fairly interesting. For example, I didn't know Stan Lee changed (or altered) his name strictly because he didn't want to be associated with comics.

I just got back into Sleepy Hollow. I could stare at Nicole Beharie's lovely, luscious lips all day. I bet they taste like cherry Tootsie Pops.

I caught most of that show, too. Pretty interesting stuff. Is there any similar documentary that isn't limited to a single company? Because at several points during the show I found myself wondering what exactly was going on with OTHER comic companies at that point, particularly DC.

She is beautiful. I love me some Ichabod Crane. I'm glad they've been letting him have his hair down a bit more often this season.

I think the one Liev Schreiber narrated and hosted covered more comics as a whole and didn't focus on just one company. I think.

If only you had a card at my library. They have a digital version for streaming, too, apparently.

EDIT: Actually, maybe you don't need one. When I click on it, it redirects here:

https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/11152865

which doesn't seem to be directly affiliated with my library. Maybe you could use it, too.

It's pretty good. However, the first hour for me really dragged.

I would also recommend Heroes Unmasked, which you can readily watch HERE. It basically has the same information as Superheroes A Never Ending Battle in half the time and it was created before it too. I especially like the part where is notes the biggest difference between DC and Marvel, in that DC characters talked and acted like the parents where Marvel character talked and acted like the teenagers. I watch Heroes Unmasked typically once a year.

When I checked Netflix, it shows up, but you can't add it to the queue. It says, "Availability date unknown."

Yeah, I love this season's start to The Newsroom as it featured a good dose of Sloan Sabbith.

Interesting, though I have my doubts that it will be at all faithful to the source material.

On the last Flash episode, I find it amusing that "Yeah, nothing to worry about, we were just conducting unannounced testing with high explosives right offshore from a major city" works as a "cover story". Wouldn't you think that would end up with people calling for the head of whoever was in charge of that? Namely Eiling?

Well, Central City seems to have a thick skin or apathy of things that happen in their city. I mean, the Star Labs facility hasn't be demolished even though it appears to be occupying prime real estate and no one seems to be investigating "The Streak" except a blogger named I. West.

Well, I assume that they can't just demolish the facility if somebody besides the city owns it. (Well, they might be able to, given the spectacular failure- though so far as most people know that did little damage- but it would require a legal fight if the owners objected.)
