I’ll tell you one thing for free, right now:  From my perspective, New Year’s resolutions are for suckers.  There’s no more magic to January 1st as a date than there is to April 4th, August 22nd or St. Swithin’s Day.  The universe will not start fresh simply because our calendar has run out of pages…

BUT!

We humans (and atomic robots from space like Rodrigo) are a complex breed, and we’re capable of great things, so long as we have reason to do ’em, so I don’t get too snarky with the “New Year: New ME!” folks (at least, not out loud.)  Given the tumult of the last 12 months in pop culture, there are a lot of things to look forward to, leading us to our renewed and refreshed query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is forty-four this year, but I still hope that the new episodes of ‘Dangermouse’ are as cool as the ones that came before, asking: In lieu of a resolution, what’s your greatest pop-culture hope for 2015?

Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

    I hope that Digimon Adventure 2015 (or Digimon Adventure tri, whatever it is actually going to be called) will bring back the same sort of feel Digimon had during Digimon Adventure 01/02 and Digimon Tamers.

    I also hope The Flash TV series keeps going strong with their stories. I’m honestly a bit surprised at just how much I’ve enjoyed the series so far, and I hope it doesn’t start to dwindle soon. I can’t wait for the Trickster episode and I REALLY hope the build up to Grodd is worth it!

    I agree with Malone_hasco, it would be pretty cool for Star Wars to be great again… I tried to introduce my 4-year old son (who loves the Star Wars Legos) and my 7-year old daughter to the Star Wars movie, and we began by watching Episode 1, and it was worse than I remembered, and I don’t remember it being very good with the sea creature dude who talks like a baby whose name escapes me… should totally be redacted… my kids ended up asking about 90 minutes into it if we could stop and play Uno instead (!).

      Next time, skip the prequels and go straight to the animated “Clone Wars” movie, then the series. They are movie canon, after all, and are leaps and bounds better than the prequels.
