    You haven't played Batman: The Telltale Series, have you? :lol::whistle:

    I think you need to understand how brains associate things sometimes. Its like mental typecasting. Obviously actors are not their characters, but you'll associate some actors with certain characters very strongly sometimes. Leonard Nimoy will always remind me of Spock, Hugh Jackman will always remind moe of Wolverine, and Brandon Routh will now always remind me of a dumbass making brony jokes way, way past their expiration date. To be fair, I started hating Ted Kor--I mean, Hank Py--I mean, "Ray Palmer" when he lost a bunch of IQ points and starting sleeping with Fake Vixen, so the Brony thing is more like the final nail in the coffin.

    Yeah, the first "season" at least. It was pretty mediocre, but Caine's Alfred was worse then anything that series did, at least in my playthrough. The sequel, or a different playthrough of S1 I guess, might be different, but really Telltale still "got" Batman more then Nolan ever did, even if their Batman series wasn't very good.

    It's not reasonable.

    You do know Ray Palmer existed in the comics before both Hank Pym and Ted Kord right?

    Its not reasonable to dislike an actor because of a role? Well, that's certainly... your opinion.

    Yes. I'm not going to let something that was the writers choice, not the actor ruin them for me.

    I could understand hating it if Brandon came up with the scene. But it's not his fault so I'm not going to associate it with him.

    Well, good for you. Its not like I'm blaming the actors. I can't help that I can't stand Caine or Routh anymore, but I don't think its unreasonable. Shit tends to leave a distinctive smell ever when its gone.

    I mean, they didn't have to take the shitty roles, but I'll admit that I can't stand Caine or Routh through stuff that isn't really their fault. It doesn't change the fact that I don't want to watch them, though.

    It's hard to know a role is "shitty" before actually doing it.

    One line in thousands and it becomes a "shitty" role. :lol:

    Damn it, I got my bland, generic white dudes mixed up. I wonder how that could have happened, with them being such distinct, interesting characters :rommie: Well, to be fair to Nate, Fake Vixen is still a better love interest then Felicity...

    And the award for worst use of a good gif goes to...someone with no real argument outside of hating oposing opinions! Congratulations!

    Doesn't change my feelings on the role, or the actors that did them. You're not going to argue away my at this point instinctual dislike of Caine or Routh, so :shrug:

    To give an honest response, I actually have a sense of humor and I'm able to enjoy things that are just goofy, silly fun.

    You can have fun without becoming the PG-13 TV equivalent of Airplane or Scary Movie. Its the line between comedy and insulting farce. LoT was never meant to be a farce in Season 1, it told a real story. At this point its got all the writing talent of those "2 of the 6 producers of Scary Movie" movies, except garbage like Meet the Spartans and Epic Movie still treat their characters with more respect the LoT does.

    If I may quote the Ancient One, Kirk, "it's not about you", so you should stop taking this shit so goddamn personally. If you don't like the ride, then get out of the car.

    I got "out of the car" after Season 2. The few season 3 episodes I watched were some of the worst non-Season 4 Arrow things ever produced by the CW Arrowverse. That doesn't mean I can't talk about how much I miss the real Legends of Tomorrow from season 1.

    Screw this I'm done. No, it's because I don't have response to you, I actually started to write but I realized that it would do is prolong this stupid, pointless, aggravating conversation.

    It had bad villains, but a great main cast that were actual characters and not jokes. Even Ray and Sara were good characters is Season 1. It was a real show with real characters, not a badly done farce like S2 and especially Season 3 and beyond.
