    What came to mind was RAM's death scene in Tron: "Oh my user... my user..."

    Congratulations, guys! You've made the best year of podcasts I've ever listened to. I can't wait for more!

    Dammit, Omegus, no matter what store you go to, never make the self-checkout line an option.

    It's a concentrated 7 foot by 12 foot cubical of hell mixed with a hive of scum an villainy.

    I am paused at roughly 14 minutes through the podcast so that I, a 23-year-old MALE devotee of BOTH Transformers AND Harry Potter, may fly into a froth-mouthed rage. :mad 

    Point 1: Lupis - WTF? Where'd you get the idea that Harry Potter is an effing "hormonal women's franchise"?! HP is a broad-appeal fantasy adventure series aimed squarely at the Lord of the Rings/Star Wars/Pirates of the Caribbean crowd; its appeal is based on a fantasy setting, mystery plotlines and large-scale effects-based action sequences. Romance content has been marginal and secondary in all but the most recent film, where even then it occupies only about a quarter of the content. This is honestly the first time I've heard the concept of Potter as a "drag your boyfriend" film, and frankly it doesn't ring true at all. :confused: 

    Point 2: Vangelus - you appear to be basing a whole lot of your rather dismissive opinion on your viewing of the first two films, which are the least well-regarded critically, and an out-of-order airplane viewing of the fourth which was all but useless. You really haven't given the series a fair crack of the whip, there; if you're an Alfonso Cuaron fan, you should at least see the third, which is by far the best-liked. I agree with you on the John Williams score on HP1 and HP2, but that sound is jettisoned for the rest of the films; HP3 has a wholly different medieval-tinged Williams score, HP4 a really heavy, muscular Patrick Doyle score (which I can't beleive you didn't notice, even on an airplane), and HP5 and 6 have fairly low-key Nicholas Hooper efforts. The "whimsical-type music" is long, long gone.

    Seriously, people, what is with this weird "ewww-poke-it-with-a-stick" approach you've all taken to the series? You're talking about it like it's Sex and the City or Dora the Explorer or something else utterly alien to the Transformers community/demographic, when it's nothing of the sort. I know you were trying to be diplomatic, but honestly it kind of ended up coming across as more patronising because it seemed like you were trying to be nice about it. So, well done, Vangelus, you've got another set of fans against you. :D 

    Anyway, back to podcast!

    EDIT: Oh yeah, hearty congrats on a year of mightily fine work. My rantings aside, it would be thoroughly remiss of me not to applaud you for the fine entertainment and analysis you've been providing. And all for free! This podcast has become a staple of my weekly routine, and every one of you deserves a sackload of credit for that. Here's to another controversial, fan-community-baiting year! :D

    Haha! Looks like Vangelus should have waited for his Harry Potter monologue before recording an apology. :lolol
