They should give them a quiz about the shows they say the watch.

    Quite a few years ago my Dad got one of their surveys I guess as a try out. I suspect because my dad liked to watch a lot of local stations instead of networks like WGN is why our house wasn't picked.
    I think of the Nielson data somewhat similar to the Red & Blue polling maps post election. Huge areas of people I didn't know existed voting for people I didn't know were running.

    And I'm not even going to go into how outdated the ratings system is. Doesn't (almost) everyone require a friggin' converter box? They know exactly who is watching what and when. All the Xboxes and such have chips that feed data.

    The system to make and pay money is too dependent. Either the few who make all the money are going to make much much less or they are going to have to pay out that much more to the creators.


    See, this is what makes me suspicious of the ratings system. There was that one terrible show with Jim Belushi that was on the air so long I think I forgot it existed. Who the hell watched that?
    Perfect example. It really doesn't make sense. But it is oddly consistent. The only real wiggle room is how something will do internationally - in either direction.

    I hope your book fails Marvel. I hope this fails and you lose your credibility.

    It limped to 27 issues. That was Marvel being generous.

    I never read the Duane S issues. Were they any good?

    They were good, but unfortunately not nearly as good as the Fraction/Brubaker gold standard.

    It started off well, but the Hell arc really crapped out at the end and they wrap for the series wasn't great or referenced anywhere else. But I'd still say it's worth it if you can find them cheap.

    If I was S/D this would send me over the edge, but I'm not, so instead I'm just going to throw Greg Land out there again and then cry on the inside.

    Yeah, the end set up an interesting future for Danny & Misty, but then it turned out to be fake, which was sad and a cop-out.

    Land is a big blow to any IM fan, but that's what happens when you character stars in a continuing series. But hey, at least you got Earth's Mightiest Heroes!

    Some people need to discover the beauty of the PM.

    This thread has been acting like some kind of weird neutral zone to the board as a whole...all are welcome here, BUT WE ARE NOT GONNA BE SWITZERLAND!!!

    I like a bunch of other characters too, so while Iron Fist is my favorite, I'm not totally emotionally wrapped up in his success. As long as he has good showings on a fairly consistent basis I'm ok.

    That would have been my guess.

    I've seen the trades for cheep on ebay. I almost pulled the trigger on all six TPBs not too long ago. I liked the immortal weapons mini also.
