MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION
Does Continuity Matter?
Is continuity really that important? Isnt it OK to tell stories that are just good stories and not tell them with everything else in the universe hinging on that story?

    The Interweb Nets gods are being mighty testy tonight… give it an hour or two and everything should settle down. The embed and download versions on this page work, but iTunes is still messed up – getting only half the show. :( BAH!

    luv’d the debate. wat I find funny thru the exchange is that the Matthew, comics guru, prefers flexible continuity to open story possibilities and Stephen, typo extraordinaire (sorry, I couldn’t resist), prefers heavy dependence on continuity to keep a throughline for consistency. All’s I know is I try to enjoy comics and avoid ones I don’t, with or without continuity.

    Albert: hey, what can I say, I try to catch them when i can, and let the typo police sort out the rest… it’s bizzare isn’t it? Although if you counted up the hundreds of thousands of words I crank out each month, a few here and there aren’t really that big of a deal ;)

    And isn’t your tease a bit of “the pot calling the kettle black?” :D

    Another great one.

    And BTW, ‘Gaumer’ rhymes with bomber and Jeffrey Dahmer, but I don’t eat no mystery meat

    But Gomer is better than Gaymer anyday

    Great discussion. I think you guys finally decided that “Love is all you need” and with love comes sacrifice and taking the good with the bad and, like Matthew said, ignoring it when you have to.

    Quote of the show: “Come on, man, you’re getting all the free Coke you want” :)

    I’m with you on this one, Stephen!

    Hasty decisions to make a buck lead to lameass stories… then they paint themselves into a corner, which leads to more lameass stories.
