      Cap isn't my favorite MCU character so I went in with minimal expectations.

      That said, it pisses on either of the other Phase 2 movies from a great height.

      The only real disappointment was that neither of the scenes at the end tied into Guardians of the Galaxy.
      ----------
      Cause Cap and anything in it doesnt have anything to do with Guardians, Thor 2 did had an Guardians Tie in because Thor ties with the Infinity Gems storyline

      I thought so. I was watching that episode on Netflix earlier, and that scene looked a bit familiar. :lol

      QLRformer,
      No problem!

      I think the 1996 TV Movie was badly executed, not because of the lead actor as Paul McGann is excellent in the audios but the overall style was far too Americanised and too far away from what Doctor Who had been up to that point.

      Who should never forget it's roots as being a very British take on sci-fi although it has often done so during the revival era.

      It seems to be caught between identities.

      Thank you for your answer. But may I ask, what did you think of the 1996 film? Was it what you might say a decent effort at a cinematic DR WHO? What IS needed for it to work as a film, or can it even work that way at all?

      It is refreshing to see someone from the US actually take the time to check some of these things out instead of resorting to the usual "stop whining" types of comment.

      I'm sure US collectors have their problems as well but when you compare the basic things like prices & availability with those in the UK you can see why we get a bit annoyed if our counterparts across the pond complain about TRU's "only" having Animated Rodimus & Ironhide on the shelves....they were just 2 of many items that never saw a retail release here.

      I did some checking a few days ago to see if shipping a few RTS figures your way would cost a lot. I don't know why, I think it was something you said in a thread on the boards. I did an estimate to London, and to Edinburgh from my locale in the US, and gained a new appreciation why everyone in the UK comments on how hard it is to get figures. It's cheaper to ship a bomb to Al Qaeda! I mean seriously, you'd think the Queen would deliver it herself (which would be funny considering I'm now imagining her in dress with an Optimus Prime voice changer helmet on). Anyway, I totally get it now.

      Idk about across the pond. I had to hold out for a decent price here in the states, but it was worth every penny. Tom Baker's part was absolutely exquisite and the author even included Romana.

      No I haven't but considering who wrote it I'm very intrested. Is the book still easy to get hold of?

      Dr Grim,
      I first gave B7 a go last year when I rented each series from Lovefilm and I loved it. I've since bought the box sets of series 1 & 2 and will get the others in due course.

      Whilst there's plenty of similarities with Who from the same period the overall tone of the stories is much darker and quite graphic in some places which for me is a nice contrast with Who that for the most part has always been as kid friendly as possible.

      My favorite character is Avon as he was about as perfect an anti-hero as it's possible to create...........he never made any secret of his hatred for Blake's cause and several times came close to selling everyone out, yet still managed to show that he cared about other people in the right cicumstances.....brilliant writing from Nation and Paul Darrow's acting was also damn good........even now he's older I reckon he could play The Master in Doctor Who.

      His chemistry with Michael Keating as Vila was particularly good and their banter was often the highlight of the stories and I also liked the scenes he had with Servalan............the bit where he kisses her then drops her on the floor and says something like "If I joined forces with you I'd be dead in a week" was priceless.

      What really stands out about the series as a whole was the ending..........the good guys lost and it wasn't a lame thing were they were just arrested and sent to a prison colony, they were all killed off with the possible exception of Avon who we never actually saw die.

      How many shows today either sci-fi or otherwise would do something like that even if they knew there was no chance of another series?

      I don't think anyone would have the balls.

      Have you ever watched Blake's 7? If you haven't, I think you'd really appreciate it as an old school Who fan. It was created by Terry Nation and the first season was completely written by him.

      I like the design, the increased size makes them look more imposing and the update to the eye stalk is well implemented.

      Color wise I'm not as keen but if some of the profits from the onslaught of merchandise goes towards restoring more Classic stories or making new Classic figures then I'm not going to complain.

      The next time they return in a TV episode I hope they are made to appear a proper threat and there's no BS like that scene with River Song in "The Big Bang".....they need to be unafraid of everyone that's not the Doctor.
