@batwatch: @lunacyde

This training idea is basically good thinking, but there's no way that it'd ever be instituted. From a foreigner/ outsider's perspective I can already see the outcry if it came into effect tomorrow (by virtue of magic wand)

"I'm not going to listen to some pencil-neck govt. paper-pusher tell me how to use a gun"

"I grew up around guns, don't tell me how to shoot"

"The dinosaur people will implant you with a microchip when you go in for 'training'"

The last one is because I'm tired, but still the whacko brigade will still ignore anything even in the community's interests.

@batwatch as you said, to a lot of people guns are inherently evil, which is stupid. But on the other side of the coin to a lot of people guns aren't serious items. As an example, I read yesterday about the guy shooting down his neighbour's drone because he thought it was a "CIA surveillance device". Putting aside the loony part, this guy had put a number of holes in his neighbours house because he didn't care what happened to the bullets that missed. Even when shooting at his neighbor's property was mentioned to him, he didn't care.

Honestly I don't see any solution, the genie is too far out of the bottle over there...

@sophia89: That wasn't the point I was making, and some basic training is better than "its my right, give it to me!"

Everyone always mentions the Swiss having guns, but minimizes the Military training behind it.

Anyway nothing can ever be said on this topic to change anyone's minds, which is a bit of a shame.

INB4 people call for gun bans...again.

Mexico has really tight gun control and has a high violent crime rate.

Switzerland has a-lot of guns and gives guns to almost all of it's citizens and has a low crime rate(One of the lowest).

I think this should end any debate.

Hey, I just wanted to correct you that while it is legal to own a gun in Switzerland, it is illegal to own any form of ammunition. Just giving a heads up

Read a site before that said you can buy as much ammo as you want there.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Switzerland Wiki sorta conforms it too.

Keep in mind the Swiss also train you in the use of the firearm you get, its not just "here you go, help yourself!"

@jonsmith: Totally agree with you, I remember when they first announced the show and explained that it would be a police drama set in gotham- the end.

When asked by every reporter they eventually conceded that Bruce Wayne would appear near the start as a minor cameo type of character and that the GCPD were the focus of the show.

How long did that last behind the scenes I wonder?

Let's see how long till they work in Bat-Mite...

IMO this episode was really good. The only bad part was the Doctors electric guitar solo and the word "Dude". Missy and Clara probably somehow escaped using the time travel devises that they used to find The Doctor at the start of the episode.

Same here, I liked it. The whole "medieval dinner-theatre" section was a bit of a cringe fest only there for the (very) brief chuckle at the tank riding.

The start of the episode was great with the reveal of the kids name, its just good to have Who back.

Night Knight? with his Knight Light on his Knight Mare? so cheesy, yet so cool...

(although having to be named Night Knight to make it all work may not be worth it in the long run)

Impressive stuff! The standee would be incredible, they had the wall murals in a catalogue over here on force Friday... best part of $500! If you're paying that, you better hope you love the movie when it comes out!

@darkdefender: Yep, but it still doesn't go anywhere near dragging a star destroyer out of orbit or the re-entry surfing that Starkiller did. That was just way too over the top, fun- but it had no place in canon.

Why is there always so many Joker, Harley and Deadpool cosplays?

Because those characters are basically internet memes (and with the new Suicide Squad movie revamps, the Joker and Harley costumes take less costuming effort than ever before). Every once in a while you'll see some internet hullabaloo about girls cosplaying at cons without even knowing the characters and being "fake geek girls", but honestly nothing screams "guy who just knows the character from imgur" more to me than seeing someone dressed as Deadpool and shouting totally random internet references.

or maybe the cosplayers just really like the characters.

It's Monday. It's a new week. We should try to have a positive outlook on things instead of just looking for other stuff.

Agreed.

Black Panther and Rocketeer were amazing.

But who was the naked guy standing in a box of pixelisation???

Good article, it wasn't really a story as such but the "Bad Wolf" graffiti that kept popping up in the first (?) series was a pretty good feature too, although it was a long time ago to remember the details.

Looking forward to the new series!
