Your best comment: Dr. Manhattan didn't wear diapers. He just let it all hang out. Engineers, being advanced space people, invented the ultimate form of space suit for traveling to ancient worlds and committing random acts of unnecessary suicide...cloth diapers. this is a costume for men who want to show off their physique, but also dress like an incontinent giant baby at the same time.— Clyde M

Our story: Visit the set of Syfy's Defiance with 16 revealing new pics

Your best comment: I generally hate all post apocalyptic sets. Looks like you're shooting in a junkyard. I can drive to the edge of town and see that. This is SCIFI! I would rather see rebuilt cities -- wondrous things! That was the one thing the Priest did correctly. Only good thing about the movie. — Jeffrey

Our story: Star Trek's Nana Visitor shares the dark problem that hurt DS9

Your best comment: Maybe I'm a weird Trek fan but I don't hold any of the shows, the original, Next Gen, DS9, Voyager or Enterprise as being better than the others. They're all different views of a very big universe has always been my take. Not surprisingly it allows me to accept the craftsmanship of each without taking away from the others. Ds9 was rooted around not Starship life, but how the actual people of that future exist on the edges of exploration. Not everyone who's out there is going to live on a Starship, not everyone out there is going to have issues which, we come in, fix and move on, which is the nature of a Starship based show. In this DS9 was very unique showing us that when you're not moving around all the time in the universe the day to day, month to month issues become much more nuanced. Sure it's a show so it has to be episodic but they balanced fan needs, episodic tv and that kind of space frontier in a technologically advanced society with differing cultures very well.

It was never bad - it was just different. I see a lot of people compare it to Babylon5 and I can see that also, but it very definitely had it's own take on those same societal and cultural issues so I didn't see it as a competitor or a rehash so much as the difference between being able to see how people in New York live versus people in Seattle, or London as opposed to Madrid. It's a view of peoples and cultures is all. Both were well done, both had their positives and negatives. — rj

Our story: Major news about Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series: Coulson lives!

Your best comment: Agreed. In an era where even the old "Only Bucky stays dead" mantra doesn't hold anymore, I think it would be so refreshing just to let someone die. I am reminded of how Spock's beautiful death was ruined by his obligatory, convention-riddled comeback in the Search for Spock. Here's an idea: if you want to use a character again, don't kill them off in the first place.— Sam

Our story: Didn't like the last two Matrix movies? Lana Wachowski knows why

Your best comment: Reminds me of a friend who insisted the only reason people didn't like the 2nd and 3rd films was because they "didn't understand them", to which I always replied that I understood them perfectly, they were just terrible movies. — Shane
