    Lot of news today! I did know The Prisoner. Bummer the guy can't wear his own suit. And DC has insisted they will never make a JLA movie - but they should!

  4. If hes smart he'll start selling those.

  5. There's a ton of stuff going on. I think that Darth Vader would completely own Dr. Who (sorry Dr. Who fans). I didn't know that about Six, but I did enjoy the Prisoner. And I predict the CW's version of Green Arrow will only succeed if they follow the Smallville formula (which I'm sure they will). Lots of angst between the love of Green Arrow's life but they can't be together for seasons and seasons...pop music, and hot hot men.

  6. Michael, the sonic screwdriver can do anything...unless Vader chokes the life out of him.
