Aggregating tangentially related content into one thread does not make it more available or foster good discussion.
    Its all good, homey. I shouldn't have tried to play the "Where certain topics need to go on KFFL." boss.

    Oh... Me too! Watching the movie Election is probably the closest I'll ever get to reading the book.

    Little Children was very good but a hard/sad film to watch. Well except for the obligatory scenes of Kate Winslet getting naked.

    Supposedly the Leftovers show has already departed significantly from the book, and the show seems to be promising some answers that the book never gave.

    I continue to be 'whelmed' by this show. The latest episode shows a bit of promise, but I am not positive if this one will remain in my rotation much longer.

    Heh. "Whelmed." Did you get that from Robin on Young Justice or somewhere else? First time I ever heard it was from Robin on Young Justice.

    Freeze: The Boy Wonder. The Bat sent you to drag me off to prison. Frankly, I'm underwhelmed.
    Robin: Great, but I'm kinda in a hurry here.
    Freeze: Kids. Always in such a rush. I prefer to preserve these moments... forever.
    Robin: I'm not talking to you.

    Kid Flash: Have all four sidekicks ever been in the same place at the same time?
    Speedy: Donít call us sidekicks. Not after today.
    Kid Flash: First time at the Hall. Iím a little overwhelmed.
    Robin: You're overwhelmed, Freeze was underwhelmed. Why isn't anyone just whelmed?
    [They enter the Hall]
    Robin: Oh, maybe thatís why.

    He said in the interview that it allowed him to expand on what was in the book. He seemed to be treating the new format as a new vehicle for the story. How it comes out might be different.
    "And if there is nothing that can so hide the face of our fellow-man as morality can, religion can hide from us as nothing else can the face of God." -- Martin Buber

    "You do not like religion; we started from that assumption. But in conducting an honest battle against it, which is not completely without effort, you do not want to have fought against a shadow like the one with which we have struggled." -- Friedrich Schleiermacher
