It was fine, but over in a few seconds and I didn't think it was as good as some of the earlier takedowns this season. Like this one:


As much as I like Ghost Rider finally has the chains back, I still find it distracting in the wide shots and see him wearing sneakers. There is nothing tough or threatening about sneakers! Put him in boots!

Yeah, that was good but doesn't hold a candle to a torso being dissected by a flaming chain and scattered into pieces by a quake blast.

Other than the anticlimactic end to Aida, I thought it was a good episode. Radcliffe got a better sendoff than she did.

As dumb as Radcliffe has been throughout the season, I still feel bad for his and his lady's end. He pulled it together at the end for a decent sendoff.

I hope they come up with a good Ghost Rider show.

Radcliffe was just guilty of hubris and his invention came crashing down around him.

Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.*

Hey, c'mon now. There's no literary references on the AVS Forum!

All we know about "Ozymandias" is that it was the title of one of the closing episodes of 'Breaking Bad'. And it was awesome!

Well if it helps bring me back down to my true level of illiteracy, I knew of the poem only because of BB and I had to google to find the poem and author. So, basically, I'm not any kind of literary maven, I'm just a pop culture and internet hack.

I just finished off the season yesterday and came back to review the thread and was struck by your crystal ball's powers. Very impressive!
